Smelly situations occur anywhere, anytime. I was recently in London on a tube and was amazed by the amount of stinky pits around me. I was in the post office and a duo extremely, extremely stinky walked in and stunk the whole place out. I was on a tram a very stinky person sat near by – it was a horrific smell, like rotting meat.
And all I could do was hold my breath!
But I’m pretty sure every one is guilty of forgetting to put deodorant on sometimes. But in the summer I always carry some with me just in case it gets really hot and sweaty.
Here are two of my recent purchases:
Both of these deodorants are from Japan! I bought Ishizawa Lab Deo Shebert Deodorant Bar just because it looked cute – this is a stick deodorant. I bought another roll on from a very popular Kao range 8×4 to try too…
The 8X4 range seems to have spray, roll on, mini spray versions of the same scents. I like how they have full size and mini roll ons (the mini is a great handbag size, I have the standard one).
This yellow one I believe is Citrus. I have smelt it quite a few times and it’s just quite fresh, to me.
The 8×4 is a very liquid texture but it doesn’t run or anything. It is supposed to kill the bacteria that causes BO (and I really think it does – it doesn’t just mask the smell). It is also supposed to care for the skin and I am SURE I can smell the faintest twinge of alcohol? But then again it doesn’t sting so..I’m not sure!
Ishizawa Lab Deo Shebert Deodorant Bar is a soft bar type product. It works quite well but is a little bit tough to use in that it needs quite a few strokes to get on the skin.
I am not a fan of spray deodorants. Unfortunately, they make my arm pits itch and irritated which is why I prefer roll on and bar deodorants.
So, do you have a deodorant preference?
