I really like my little dependable stick of Olay, truly I do but I couldn’t help but be swayed by the talk about the ingredients in popular deodorant / anti-antiperspirant products that may be hazardous to your health. Rumours while they are, I’d like to keep my chances low if I can.
With absolutely no expectations (and a bit of fear might I add), I opened the lid to find a pale off white solid cream. The scent of lemon is vivid in this concoction, something that reminds me of a lemon tart. The balmy looking product melts into a smooth cream like consistency as you touch it with your fingers and once applied does leave a soft silkiness to the skin. I did a heavy swatch below so you can get a better feel of the texture but you certainly don’t need much product per application. In fact, apply too much and you end up with somewhat sticky underarms when you sweat… I made this mistake the first few times because it disappeared so quickly onto my skin that I wasn’t sure if put on enough at all.
Will this be replacing my heavy duty anti-antiperspirants you ask? Probably not as they are still the clear winner for me in those special situations but I do really enjoy the option of having something lighter and more natural to use in my day to day life. In fact I have putting this one on more often during my morning routines. While the line is a little sparse from their website offerings, I’ve now got my eyes on their Grapefruit Mint Salt Body Scrub ($10CAD/240ml) but I do hope they will expand the line further in the future.
