You really tried switching to the natural stuff and for the first few days, it seemed to be working. But then your friend’s wedding turned into a six-hour-long dance session, and somewhere in between belting out “Comin’ outta my cage, and I’ve been doin’ just fine!” and raising your glass for the final toast, the dreaded “OMG, did I smell like this all day?!” realization sunk in.
Not to worry: We’ve all been there. We’re here to tell you it’s not you, it’s them. But there’s a solution that’s easy, gentle and works harder than your boss before a three-day weekend (especially now that sweaty girl summer is upon us).
We’ve opened our eyes to the gentle yet effective Dove 0% Aluminum Deodorant, and we think you should too. It offers odor protection for 48 hours (in case you have one of those mornings and totally forget to swipe on) while still aluminum-free. It’s especially recommended for underarms that need extra care, since the sticks and sprays contain 1/4 moisturizers.
And with fresh and delightful scents like cucumber and green tea, pomegranate and lemon verbena, cotton flower and sandalwood—and our favorite, coconut and pink jasmine—you’ll actually want to do a quick sniff check (though, maybe wait ‘til you’re not in public…).
