Long time no see na??? I must confess that I did miss all this action. Now without much delay I shall begin the review.
Today I shall be reviewing Nivea Whitening Deodorant Anti Perspirant Roll On. Rain or Shine, Hot or Cold, deodorants and anti-perspirants are something that all of us use. Especially now that the inevitable summers are staring us all in our faces, we either use a spray or a roll on. Now, are deodorants and anti-perspirants the same or different? Let’s find out…
Rs.165 for 50 ml.
How to Use?:
Apply on the underarms directly. Do not apply on clothes.
30 months from the date of manufacture.
Packaging: It comes in a glass bottle with a round cap and the typical roll on thingy. Travel friendly but no harm in being extra careful with the glass bottle. However, being glass it is recyclable :D, bonus points there from me.
Colour, Fragrance & Texture: The color is white as you can see from the swatch below. The fragrance is very refreshing and citrusy. It is more like the good old Nivea cream in that blue tin which I like.
The texture is a little liquid-y and it takes a few seconds to completely dry out. However it does not leave behind any whitish cast and completely vanishes in a while.
My Opinion on How it Works:
I bought my first Nivea roll on last April. Before that I had bought a roll on from the brand Sure which I am speculating was Rexona earlier. I bought this one out of curiosity and it was pretty cheap too. I have always had my inhibitions about roll-ons especially about how hygienic it would be to use a roll on. But, never the less my curiosity got the better of me and I purchased it. I must say that I was pretty happy with Sure and now I wanted something better and nicer. So my search began and ended with Nivea whitening roll on.
Now all the razor work in the under arm area had left it pretty dark. So I was tempted to give its whitening claim a try. And, guess what???? It does live up to its claim to a very large extent. Though it has not made my underarms white but yes it is not embarrassingly dark anymore. It has made it fairer over a period of time with regular usage. Moreover, like I mentioned earlier it has a very pleasant and refreshing smell. Though I cannot vouch for the 48hr protection but yes it does prevent body odour too to a very great extent. Personally I do not use another spray or perfume over my clothes after using this if I am going around doing some errands around town. The quantity will last you a while too as you do not have to smother yourself with it. I use it everyday after my shower in the morning and the fragrance lasts the entire day plus no body odour issues. Here, I must also mention that I am one of those people that do not sweat heavily but, yes, I too do perspire like any other Chennaite. And, I would stress again on how refreshing it is. However, I must mention that it does take a little while to completely dry out.
I am very pleased with this product and now I am on my second bottle because right after I finished the first one I picked up Nivea pearl beauty to try it out. I will review that very soon.
