Let's face it, a lot of us ladies are conscious about how our underarms look. We love clear, smooth, unblemished underarms, but shaving, waxing, deodorant chemicals and residue can take their toll on our underarm skin. I have tried different kinds of deodorants, some more harsh than others that lead to darkening of my underarms. Hair ingrowns caused by shaving can also exacerbate the less-than-desirable conditions of our underarms. It seems that every deodorant wreaks havoc on the sensitive skin of our armpits.
However, I've heard about the Dove Clear Tone Skin Renew Deodorant, and was given the chance to try it. Dove Clear Tone Skin Renew Deodorant claims that not only does it provide 48-hour protection, but its unique formula accelerates the skin renewal process, helping to visibly reduce dark marks and even skin tone over time.
This is the perfect time to try this deodorant because, here in Arizona, it is still hot in early September, and it's the most humid time of the year in this area because of the monsoon season. It's the perfect time to test out Dove Clear Tone Skin Renew Deodorant's claims!
For the heat test, Dove passed with flying colors. I really like the Dove Clear Tone in Sheer Touch. It has a very clean scent and it makes me feel fresh and protected the entire day. In spite of the intense and humid heat this time of the year, it kept me dry and fresh-smelling. Wearing deodorant is a must in this desert oasis. I'm glad that Dove Clear Tone passed the desert test.
Now for the real challenge: making my underarms look smoother with a more even skintone using the Dove Clear Tone Skin Deodorant. I ditched my old deodorant and currently trying out this product. I really hope this product delivers because I have dark areas in my underarms due to hair ingrowns (sorry for the TMI part, but this is part of the review!). I have stopped shaving and I'm using an epilator, and this did make my underarm feel and look smoother. However, I still would like to have the dark spots lightened and just have a more even skintone on this area. In this heat, we are always wearing sleeveless shirts, so presentable underarms are a must. I appreciate deodorants that not only prevent perspiration and odor, but also take care of the sensitive skin in the underarm area.
Looking forward to the outcome in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned for the results!
