I bought this roll-on deodorant a while back and I have hardly used it as I found another that I liked better. When I bought this, I was looking for a new roll on deodorant because I prefer them to aerosols. When comparing with the other roll-on deodorants sitting on the shelves, I chose this one because on the bottle it said it contained no perfume.
I was going out for food with my boyfriend last night and I had a mini panic attack when I saw my Dove roll-on was empty and dry as a bone. Luckily for my pits, I remembered that I still had this deodorant so it came in handy for a night.
So what is it?
It is an anti-perspirant roll-on deodorant from British skincare brand, Simple. Simple say the roll-on is kind to skin, suitable for sensitive skin, soothes irritated skin and contains no perfume, colour and no animal derived ingredients. It has been formulated with a skin soothing anti-irritant and it has been dermatologically tested and approved.
Why I’m using it?
Like I said before, I bought this roll-on because it was fragrance-free. I am very sensitive to artificial parfum so I prefer to buy roll-on deodorants as they don’t seem to smell as strong as aerosol ones and less likely to give me a migraine. Plus, I have used lots of other products from Simple in the past and I had amazing results with their cleanser, toner and moisturiser.
What did I think?
I really don’t like it but it was to hand in an emergency so I used it. It has the strongest chemical smell ever which is very similar to hand sanitizer gel, (what visitors use in hospitals to kill germs, bacteria and stop viruses spreading to patients). To be completely honest, it felt like I was rubbing vodka into my armpits!
After using it on my pits they felt sticky and it took ages to dry, feeling wet and slimy on my skin. Simple say it is ‘kind to skin’ and suitable for sensitive skin but I had a slight stinging/burning sensation for a short while after applying it. The packaging is nice and fresh though I do like that, but it’s probably the only thing I do like!
Another thing it contains some questionable ingredients which I wouldn’t have thought Simple would use as for some reason I always had the impression they were a natural skincare brand! I was completely wrong – there is nothing ‘natural’ at all about this deodorant.
Experts in sensitive skin? My arse.
Will I buy it again?
Has anyone else used this? Do you rate it or hate it?
Disclosure: I bought this.
