What I say: I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of roll-on deos. But this one had such a strange claim (reduces the regularity of shaving!?) that I had to give it a try.
The scent is nice enough, but lingers a little too long and a little too strongly for my liking. I hate it when my deo overpowers my perfume – this one does. I understand it’s there to mask other smells, but over powering Alien is just ridiculous.
Scent aside, it’s a really good anti-perspirant. It lasts all day, dries quickly for a roll-on and doesn’t stain clothes.
Now for the bizarre claim that it increases the time between shaves… Um, I’m not convinced about this. I think they’re relying on the reflective pearls to mask the hair growth, and maybe the refined texture of the skin gives the appearance of less hair, but there is still hair. Don’t get me wrong, my armpits do feel softer and smoother, but less noticeable hair is still hair in my books.
ROUGE RATING: 4/5
