No wetness protection
I was really excited to try this product after reading so many awesome reviews for it so I rushed out to my supermarket and bought it. After a week of use though I was really disappointed that the product didn't keep me dry, and if anything my clothes seemed to be wetter than usual! I usually love dove products but I don't think I'll be repurchasing.

Just remember to put it on the night before and you don't need very much at all otherwise you have to rub it in.

I bought this product after reading all of the BH trial team reviews and ladies, you were right! This is the first deodorant I have ever used that actually works for me. I was hesitant to try it for the full 48 hours, as I do perspire quite a lot, but I did it (with a shower and armpit maintenance included) and I was still dry and odour free at the end of 48 hours. Wow. This is also my favourite scent of the Dove range and it is so nice to go to sleep with as well as the directions say to apply before bed. I will be purchasing this again, the price tag is higher than other deodorants but considering it works for 48 hours it is still value for money. I also like the packaging as it helps you to control the application and conserve the product.

The deodorant says to use before going to bed which I did try a couple of times, but I prefer to have a shower in the morning, so I ended up just applying in the morning after my shower. It is a different system of getting the liquid out of the packaging and took me awhile to figure out how to get it out!! Once all that was sorted, it went on quite dry which was good. It does take awhile to absorb to your skin and dry so wait awhile before putting clothing on as it will mark. It even left me relatively dry after a Zumba class!

Since I had never tried a clinical strength deoderant before I thought it was about time I gave one a try and as everybody was raving about this one, its what I got.
ok I have to admit, I have never considered myself as a 'seriously sweaty' person I think I am just a pretty normal sweater (if the therm even exists!). Usually I would just use a spray on anti-perspirant every morning and not have a problem with it. But I was feeling lazy and wanted to try this out as one application claimed to last 48 hours. AND IT WORKS! Oh my gosh this stuff is amazing for stopping sweat! If you have a sweat problem PLEASE try this out! I put it on in the morning after my shower (I know it says do it before bed) and there is not a sign of sweat until 2 days later. After every second shower I put on about 3 clicks under each arm and that does me two days! Amazing. My mum is a fairly serious sweater and I put her onto this and she SWEARS by it!! She has never found anything that works and she loves this. So please do not be afraid to give this a try because it WORKS!

I sweat... a LOT. And this seems to be the ONLY deo/antipers that keeps me dry! It smells fresh and its not overwhelming, so it wont interfere with the perfume your wearing which is a plus!
It's moisturising, but it takes a bit to dry, so try not to put something on right after applying because it'll leave marks ><!
I like this one better than any of the other ones in the clinical protection line because the other ones i find have a scent that isnt appealing to me, whereas this one is nice and fresh :D

Rexona is the better option
After having tried both Rexona and Dove Clinical Protection I feel that the Rexona one is better.
Whilst the concept is the same for both ie apply at night after showering. I found though that whilst the Rexona kept me dry all night and into the next day / night, the Dove on the other hand left me somewhat moist by the late afternoon of the following day.
The next day I applied at night after a shower and then again in the morning but again the same issue arose in that I was somewhat moist by late afternoon.
The Dove product is not for me however there are so many rave reviews about the product (including from some people who are my friends) that I firmly believe that you should try the product for yourself. Perhaps it was just my bodies chemical reaction to the product!
Give it a try!

The only one for me!
Yes, I purspire a lot. More than many women, I feel. Normal roll on's and sPrays do little and wear off fast. They more mask instead of prevent. I would even wear mens roll on's as they work better. BUT FINALLY! A product that really truely works! I put this on before work, say 7am. It says on ALL day! I even go to the gym after work and don't get home until about 6pm, and the beautiful thibg is I am dry and odourless. (I can't smell any B.O) Honestly it is the first product that effectly stays on and does it's job. It has a nice smell and not too strong so you can wear purfume once it is applied without 2 scents mixing! It goes on and dried liek a powder and aborbs any sweat or smell. IT IS BRILLIANT! It is all I will buy from now!

Trial Team review
Thank you BH for being patient and giving me an extention for this review!
I was pretty excited to try this deodorant because I normally use Dove deodorants anyway so didn't think this could go wrong :)
This deodorant has an amazing scent, I find myself trying to smell it during the day and it never disappoints. The packaging is very nice and not flimsy at all like with lots of other similar products. The deodorant is in a form of cream that dries almost immideately after application. I thought it was a very unique formula. The product is applied by turning the little wheel at the bottom so that the cream comes out from the top and it's very easy to get way too much product at first. I worked it out at last - 2 turns is plenty.
I don't normally apply deodorant at night but the scent is so amazing that it was hard to resist.
I apply this in the morning and at the end of the day I still feel fresh and can still smell the deodorant. I don't have any sweat problem though and I don't exercise (temporarily). I did test it on very hot days and it did not disappoint!
The package is not see through but if you hold it to the light you can see how much you've used which I thought was awesome.
The only thing I noticed was the fact that I got white stains on my clothes. This usually doesn't bother me but it's worth mentioning.
The deodorant claims to improve the appearance of skin but to be honest I didn't notice any difference. Maybe it's something that takes a lot longer than a few weeks, we'll see!
I'm not loving the price but this is such a great product that I will probably repurchase!
