At the top of the year I wrote about how I was still on the hunt for the perfect deodorant that worked best for me. Over the years, my lymph nodes under my arms have become increasing sensitive to my choice of deodorant and often would become inflamed thus making that area very sensitive and me uncomfortable. I have tried a few natural deodorants in the past and while they gave me no irritation, I did have to reapply throughout the day. When Dove revealed their new 0% Aluminum Deodorant, I jumped on board.
I’ve been trying it for about a month now. What I have experienced so far is that my skin under my arms is not irritated. It is a gel like solid that goes on clear with a faint fragrance of cucumber and aloe. I would have preferred fragrance free to be on the safe side. It does not hold me extremely long periods of time. After an eight hour work day, even at an office, I have to reapply, especially if I’m going somewhere that evening.
After one swipe on my skin.
However, that is minor in the grand scheme of things. I may have to just change my routine to accommodate applying more often. My ultimate goal is looking out for my health and not using products that cause inflammation and irritation. So far, Dove 0% Aluminum has produced neither.
