I Think, You Stink.

It's not often I find something that I dislike. (okay, it is, but usually I can put a positive spin on it) But I have come across something that I really, really detest.

The concept is strange enough as it is.

A 48 hour deodorant? Seriously? have a wash you dirty cow. I have camped out, and still managed to wash my armpits. I cant really see anyone looking at this deodorant and saying "ooooh result, now I dont have to wash for 2 days" Ok, i can imagine it, but it wouldn't be someone I know.

So already this wasn't going to be a winner for me. Next issue for me is that there is 12 different types, 6 aerosol, 6 roll-ons, Mineral Fresh, Mineral Ultra, Mineral Invi.........ok, i'm boring myself now.

I just want to have fresh, clean non-sweaty armpits, is that too much to ask for?

Well apparently it is, because for me, this deodorant is naff. It didn't even work for 10 hours let alone 48. And if you knew me, you would know it isn't even as if I do anything particularly strenuous. (Ok, I don't do ANYTHING) Plus, the rollerball deodorant got stuck after 3 applications and had to be thrown away!!! Luckily I had also purchased an aerosol version.

So for me this deodorant is a complete failure.

I would be interested to know if this deodorant had worked for you. And if you had gone the full 48 hours feeling fresh as a daisy.

Let me know

EDIT, and I have just realised it is made with Mineralite, something to do with Volcanos!!!!!!!!!

Will they EVER stop messing with us in one way or another!!!!



  1. Love this - my boyfriend was shockingly observant enough to notice the 48hr claim on one of these that I have and scoffed. For some reason I hadn't really clicked onto the whole idea of 48hours as tend to take claims like that with a pinch of salt, but if you can find anyone who uses this and doesn't so much as slightly whiff after 2 days then I will be impressed. I'm not doing it, I refuse not to wash for that long.

  2. thanks for commenting. For me it didn't even get me through 1 day, let alone 48 hours. Personally, i wont be using it again. x x

  3. i haven't tried them for the full 48 hours, but I wasn't a fan of the Garnier one. However, I do use the Simple mineral deodorant and it's LOADS better! x

  4. For longevity, I have never gone past Mitchum - it's another supposed 48 hour ones (never went that long without a shower personally) however a 28-hour flight to New Zealand was the furthest I ever got to test driving that claim and it worked fine.
    I am loving your blog!!!
