I trialled this back in April 2012 and since then have continued to repurchase it and my Sister is now using it (and loving it) on my recommendation. Love this stuff!
I'm one of those lucky people who sweat alot, particularly when I wear synthetic or tight fitting clothing. Therefore, the first thing I did when I used this product was put on one of my fitted t shirts. The result - after a resonably warm day I had pretty much no sweating. Have to be happy with that!! I also find that I sweat when I'm nervous and conveniently I had a day where I was nervous during the trial and while I still sweated a little, it was nothing compared to usual. Have to be happy with that!!
I trialled "the other brand" of clinical protection deoderant a few months ago and while it did stop me from sweating, I really didn't like the sticky residue it left behind. I have to say that this has been much less of a problem with this brand. I can still feel a slight residue when I shower, but it doesn't really bother me as much.
The fragrance is "original clean" and it just smells the same as all dove products, which is good if you like it and not so good if you don't!
It is a cream, which rubs on quite well and didn't leave any residue on my skin or my clothes. The instructions say to apply at night time, which I did, but I also applied it again in the morning. I couldn't quite get my brain to accept the fact that I didn't have to do this! Unforunately, because it is so expensive compared to other deoderants and anti perspirants, using it twice a day does mean the product doesn't last for very long. The packaging is translucent though, so you can see how much is left.
One fault with the packaging for me was that it seemed to develop a film on it, almost as if the product was leaking. I'm not sure if maybe mine was just faulty though.
I have fairly sensitive skin and often get eczema under my arms, but I had no problems with this product, even after shaving.
Overall, I liked this product and even though it's pretty pricey, I will buy it agian.
EDIT - I think my trial product was faulty, as I have gone through two more of these since then and haven't had any problems with the leakage I had with the first one.

Goodbye sweaty Betty!
Although the instructions say to apply in the evening, I like to shower in the morning, which I feel reduces the effectiveness of applying in the evening. I apply in the morning and I am usually very happy. It doesn't stop you sweating, but it does reduce the amount of perspiration produced and has a lovely powdery, fresh smell to disguise any nasty BO.
It is much pricier than regular deoderants but it lasts for ages and because it's a cream rather than a liquid/gel, it dries much faster and absorbs more quickly too.

Best In Beauty- Best In Protection
This product comes in its own box and it a little more expensive than a regular roll on. Unlike the roll on's this product is designed to give you 24 hours protection. The packing has a twist bottom to push the product through the dispensing holes. I found it did this with quite evenly. The scent is light and powdery and is unlikely to clash with other scents you may be wearing.
The difference in application is that this is designed to be applied in the evening before bed for best results. While this can be a hard habit to start, the results are worth it. This does provide much better results with the instructions explaining that this is as the body’s temperature is more regular in the evening.
I have put this product through its paces and it works. I cannot say it last 24 hours but I would happy to say for me this was 16 hours of great protection. The only downside I found is that it did leave very bad white marks on my clothes even a few minutes after application. It does take a little while to absorb fully.
This is definitely I product worth the price and one I will re-purchase as I am confident it will last the day.

I absolutely love this product, it is the best deodorant I’ve ever used.
It leaves no white marks, it doesn’t sting after shaving and it WORKS ALL DAY. I go to the gym regularly and even after a gym class my underarms feel dry and fresh, amazing...
You can wear it with any perfume, it’s got a lovely gentle smell, not overpowering. It doesn’t leave my sensitive underarm area dry or irritated. And you don’t need to use heaps (just two clicks) so it will last me for ages.
It’s a very good value and I will honestly buy this after I use up the one I got from BH.

♥ best in beauty '12
In my opinion, this is the best deodorant EVER! I’ve been using this product for the past 5 months. The best way to use this product is the way they recommended it in the little pamphlet inside the box- apply two clicks for each underarm before going to bed.
I put it on each evening after I get out of the shower and I am completely dry until i shower the next night. It is a cream, but it soaks in very well, to almost nothing and keeps you dry for the next 24 hours.. Sometimes when I know I’ll be doing something to induce lots of sweating, like going to the gym, I apply an extra click the next morning.
Compared with the Rexona Clinical Protection Anti Perspirant Deodorant, this Dove deodorant washes off easier, without leaving a heavy scent.

I am completely sold. I am a new dove convert.
I hadn't used dove before. I'm not sure why, I just stuck to my regular. This will now be my regular.
It provides great protection from sweat. I used it at night after showering and went through all the next day sweat free :)
It smell clean and fresh. The product is creamy and easily applied.
I like to wait a little while for it to dry before putting on clothes though.
The 1/4 of moisturising cream formula also helped fix my dry underarms. I know sounds weird, but some bad wax jobs had left them scaly :/ but its all fixed.
This product is definitely worth it

Works great by applying after a shower at night, actually DOES last for 2 days. Best to avoid contact with clothing for an hour or so after application, or it may rub off and not last quite as long.
