How to stay fresh for 48 hrs!
Nivea Whitening Smooth Skin Deodorant Review
The summers are here again. Hot, sweaty and drippy. Stinky too! The kind of season when you always need a deo handy! NiveaWhitening Feather Touch Deodorant takes care of all your sweat related problems, including darkening of underarms and roughness of skin. Oh and yes, it smells great too. With regular use, I confidently wear without sleeves and spaghetti t-shirts and tops. The sexy sleeveless party dresses in hot summer nights can also be added to your wardrobe if you get rid of body odour and dark under arms.
It’s not your everyday run of the mill Deo, it is DIFFERENT in so many ways! Yes, you have to spray it on, but that’s where the similarities end. It has special Licorice and Avocado extracts, as well as Witch Hazel. What they effectively accomplish, is the reduction of production of melanin. Melanin is responsible for giving colour to your skin. The more time you spend in the sun, the more it is produced to protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV radiation. Kind of like your body’s sunscreen. However, since it is a pigment, it tends to darken your skin tone as well, which can be inhibitive to your aesthetic qualities.
This product thus helps you to maintain the fairness of your skin, especially the skin of your underarms (which naturally darkens as you age, especially if you have a habit of sweating profusely). It has anti per spirant properties as well. Suitable for all skin types, it soothes skin irritations as well, revealing fairer and whiter skin underneath.
It also has a nice feminine fragrance, perfectly suited for women.
How to Use:
Shake the bottle well before you use, and spray evenly across your body holding the can at least 15 cms away, and especially on your underarms and armpits to fight that sweaty odour off.Allow it to dry completely. Don’t use on rashes or broken skin.
Has a 2 year shelf life like all other alcohol based deos.
While it claims to last for 48hrs, I’d say that’s a bit of a stretch. The fragrance and anti odour capabilities last for anywhere between 10-15 hours, but even then that is a lot more than what normal deo’s offer.
The combination of Licorice extracts does soften your underarms, while whitening them quite a bit. However prolonged usage is necessary to keep the results permanent. It repairs damaged skin, taking gentle care of sensitive areas.
It has a very cool feel, which reduces itching from dust and sweat. And its anti perspirant claims are credible to boot. I would recommend you wash it off when going to sleep, as the anti perspirant clogs your sweat pores, which can lead to problems later on.
· Affordable price
· Smooth ens underarms and whitens them.
· Fights off odour well
· Cool and refreshing feel.
· Long lasting
· Mesmerizing fragrance
· Anti perspirant properties, which may be convenient, but causes more harm than good in the long run.
· The whitening properties are not that pronounced. However this can be rectified by prolonged usage, I am guessing.
Would I buy it again?
Maybe! It comes from a reputed company like Nivea, and doesn’t disappoint on most counts. The results with my first purchase were amazingly good so I am going to add this to my monthly shopping list.
