Review: Sanex Dermo Sensitive Roll On Deodorant

Hey Chicks.

Another deodorant review for you all, if you have read my other posts you will know that I am a roll-on deodorant kinda girl. Aerosols always give me a banging headache and are not as gentle on my sensitive skin and deodorant sticks often leave me with sticky pits so I always opt for roll-ons instead.

The roll-on I’ve been using for the past month is by Sanex and it is their ‘Dermo Sensitive‘ roll-on. The packaging is uniquely different to others out there. The roll on is at the bottom instead of the top so no need to stand it upside down when the bottle is nearing empty as its already upside down. The label is simple and the packaging can be recycled although there is no cruelty free bunny on the label.

It has a lovely mild scent, quite floral and subtle and I really like how it smells, it doesn’t smell artificial at all and it doesn’t give me a migraine after using it. It absorbs into the skin quickly and leaves my delicate skin feeling soft and moisturised. It contains zero alcohol so it doesn’t irritate or dry out the skin.  I don’t think it gives 24-hr protection as it says on the bottle and I don’t think it would keep odour or sweat at bay when exercising but it did keep me dry and stink free for a few hours although I do need to reapply it regularly throughout the day.

I would use it again, I just wish it gave me longer protection from sweat patches and odour without the need to reapply it. It is a cheap deodorant, small enough to pop into your handbag and it is gentle enough for sensitive skin but if you are a major sweater – I’d look for a deodorant that offers more protection.

So, the hunt for the perfect deodorant continues…

Fragrance Free & Hypoallergenic | Body Deodorant Roll On from Crystal – Review

Hey, hey..

So, another deodorant review today as I’m still on the hunt for one that doesn’t kick off my parfum allergies as well as finding one that is long lasting, gentle on my sensitive skin and keeps my sweaty pits stink-free.

What I’ve been using?

Two weeks ago I started using the hypoallergenic and fragrance free Body Deodorant Roll On from Crystal and I have mixed feelings about it to be honest, I came across the deodorant on Amazon UK and I was expecting nothing but good results from it. I had the impression that it was the perfect deodorant for those with sensitive skin, skin disorders and fragrance allergies.

What Crystal say:

Crystal is the world’s leading natural mineral salt deodorant for a reason. It works to prevent odour while other products attempt to mask it or plug pores with aluminum chlorohydrate or aluminum zirconium. Crystal is safe, healthy and totally effective. That’s why millions around the world use it every day. What makes our award-winning products so special? Unlike most products, Crystal prevents odour before it starts by creating a layer of odour-killing barrier that lasts all day. Our best-selling product, this Crystal-infused unscented Body Deodorant Roll-On goes on lightly, unlike most roll-ons sold today. It’s smooth rolling ball feels great going on, while the power of 100% natural mineral salts naturally eliminate odours all day long’.

Ingredients:

Aqua, Potassium Alum, Cellulose, Sodium Bicarbonate, Benzoic Acid, Zinc Gluconate.

What I liked?

I liked how it was fragrance free so it didn’t cause me any migraines like most other deodorants do. It really doesn’t smell of anything at all and unlike other deodorants, it contains a very small list of ingredients. It didn’t sting or irritate my sensitive skin and it didn’t leave a sticky, wet residue after applying it. The packaging is attractive and I love the purple colour of the lid and the fact it is a unisex deodorant.

What I didn’t like?

Sadly, this deodorant didn’t keep my pits dry and I had sweat patches within half an hour of applying, which was pretty embarrassing. I do sweat easily but I even found I had sweat patches when just sitting down watching TV.

Also, it didn’t keep the B.O at bay! Within an hour of applying the roll on to my armpits, shortly after the sweat patches appeared came the pong. I shower twice daily, morning and evening but whilst I was trialling this I lost count of how many showers I took and I certainly wouldn’t feel comfortable enough to go about my day or exercising whilst wearing this as I really don’t trust that it will keep me smelling fresh. You girls ever took a shower and forgotten to apply deodorant. Well, basically I felt like I had no deodorant on at all.

I definitely won’t be buying it again and the two I bought will not be getting used anytime soon but I do really like the idea of fragrance free deodorants so I will definitely try some of the other deodorants by Chrystal, they have quite a few different ones so maybe next time I’ll get a spray instead and read a couple of reviews before I purchase another.

Where to buy?

If you still want Crystal’s fragrance free body deodorant in your life regardless of my review you can get it here from Amazon UK. It’s £7.19 for two 50ml bottles.

I bought mine for £2.99 each on Amazon Pantry right here which is a pantry and grocery store which is available to Prime members only.

If you gorgeous girls have any recommendations of some fragrance free deodorants that actually work, I would love to hear about them!

Vaseline® Active Fresh Anti-Perspirant Deodorant With ProDerma – Review

Girlies,

I’ve got another deodorant review for you today. Because I have fragrance sensitivities I am always on the hunt for a deodrant that I like which doesn’t cause me violent headaches so I often prefer roll-on deodarants over aerosols because they are less likely to cause migraines. I thought I would give the Vaseline Active Fresh deodorant a try as it is alcohol free which means it is anti sting and not likely to irritate my sensitive skin. I’ve used tons of products from Vaseline in the past and I have never had a problem with any of their stuff so I thought I’d give this a whirl.

What is it?

It is a 150ml aerosol deodorant manufactured by Vaseline with a ProDerma complex which helps to protect the underarm skin which is very delicate. It is also suitable for sensitive skin and has been dermatologically tested as well as being alcohol free so it doesn’t sting and it doesn’t dry the skin on your armpits. Vaseline also say it is long lasting and it will give 48hours protection.

mmm

Vaseline say:

While sweating is a natural reaction to a rise in temperature it can often result in sweat marks, odour, and even discolouration of your clothes. In order to manage your body’s response, we have designed the Vaseline® Active Fresh Anti-Perspirant with ProDerma™ technology, a unique blend of skin-caring ingredients, which mimics the skin’s own protective layer and make it less prone to irritation. It keeps you dry all day and cares for your underarm resulting in healthy looking protected skin.

First impressions:

Just a simple 150ml aerosol bottle with the typical Vaseline packaging. Bottle looks fresh and modern but nothing special. I did notice that it doesn’t have the cruelty free bunny on the back of the bottle but the packaging can be recycled.

Why did I like it?

I liked it because it is alcohol free so it didn’t sting after applying like most deodorants do. It has a nice, fresh, mild scent that isn’t too overpowering and because I’m sensitive to most artificial fragrances and chemicals (the reason I prefer ‘natural’ toiletries) I often get migraines after using most deodorants, I’m happy to say that the scent didn’t cause me any major headaches. I did feel a little brain fog after using it but it didn’t last very long. My underarms also felt amazingly soft and protected too and it I’m happy to say that it didn’t irritate my sensitive skin. It did what it said on the tin and I found it to be long lasting and my pits smelt nice and fresh the next day after using it. The fresh scent lingered on the skin too and I could still smell it the next day.

What I didn’t like?

Nothing really, except that Unilever is the manufacture of Vaseline products and I’m sure that the company tests on animals so I would feel a million times better if this deodorant had the leaping cruelty free bunny on the bottle but unfortunately it hasn’t. So if you are strongly against testing on animals I would look elsewhere as I’m guessing this is not cruelty free.

Will I use again?

Yes, I liked it; it worked at keeping my armpits dry and kept body odour at bay for well over 48 hours without causing a full blown migraine or irritating my underarm skin. It smells very nice too and I love how soft my armpits feel after using it so I probably would buy it again, yes.

Where to buy?

You can get this deodarant almost aywhere, for example: Boots, Superdrug, Asda etc… Amazon UK sell it too!

Soothing Anti-Perspirant Roll-On Deodorant from Simple – Review

 

Girls,

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?

Nope!

Has anyone else used this? Do you rate it or hate it?

Love
