As gross as this post is going to be, but I am going to be honest….I am a sweaty person! If I get warm or exercise a lot I sweat, I don’t think I smell with it, but I do get a bit conscious about it!
So for those of you who don’t know I work at a sports events company, we specialise in triathlons and half marathons. We have between 10 and 15 events in the year, and for some of those we need to be away all weekend getting the site set up. Now although I don’t do a lot of heavy lifting it can get pretty physical at times.
We’ve just got back from our second Half Outlaw event this year. This time the event was in Holkham which is in Norfolk – we left the office last Thursday and got back on Monday afternoon. Each day that we were there we get up pretty early and have a full days work and then go to bed roughly around 10 o’clock with a few nights ending gone past midnight. So as you can imagine it’s pretty full on.
So when I received the Triple Dry Nourishing roll on deodorant, I already had in my head that this would be the perfect event to test it out. With the hard and the long days and with fingers crossed the good weather it can become a pretty sweaty time.
I have to admit I was pretty dubious about the deodorant when it arrived. How can something that you apply once in an evening stop you from sweating for the full next day? In fact, the packaging say “Clinically proven 72 hour wetness protection” I did think that there be a bit of a funky smell with it, and that it would potentially hurt my underarms.
So when I tried it, I was nicely surprised. There was no horrible chemical smell, it dried nice and quick, and if I got any of my clothes it didn’t leave a horrible stain.
Instructions on the bottle tell you to roll on each arm pit in the evening before you go to bed, allow it to dry and then wash like normal in the morning. The only difference is it your normal routine would be not to re-apply deodorant in the morning. Others to take me a few days to get used to as it fell completely wrong nothing modelling on in the morning.
The first day was really conscious that not work and I smell a bit sweaty. I don’t think I did in reality I was just panicking about it. Over the course of the week it started to get used to only apply and usually at night time and not again in the morning and it was really working for me true test will be the event weekend.
With over 20,000 steps a day, a bit heavy lifting, and a whole lot of sunshine this past weekend it could’ve been a really smelly one. I was so happy that deodorant had worked perfectly and not left me a sweaty smelly mess.
If you are a person who sweats and is worried about the smell that you’re letting off I would thoroughly recommend this deodorant. It doesn’t smell funky is nice on your skin and is pretty cheap for how good it is. This 50ml bottle is £6.45 from any boots store or online.
