Good, some flaws
I found that regular deodorants do next to nothing for me and I was always very self conscious of it. This was more effective for me but still not 100% unforntunately. I tried Driclor but my skin reacted so badly to it I wasn't able to use it for more than 4 days in a row (actually caused bleeding, even when I wasn't scratching). Eventually I found that using this product daily and driclor every few days worked best for me.
You are supposed to apply at night and not reapply in the morning but I don't feel as fresh doing that, also I don't want too much product on my skin at night. I apply it in the morning or straight after my shower if I'm going out and it works fine, just be careful because it does leave white marks.
I love the scents of both the red and blue deodorant for women. Both are so fresh and I smell nice all day with it. The consistency is good too, an easy to spread cream that dries clear (maybe faintly white). It is difficult to wash off and I can feel it on my skin even after I shower most days, but to be honest I find that kind of reassuring that the product is effective.
I find the packaging to be my main complaint with this product. You have to wind it up quite a lot to get it out at first and generally the first application will be very uneven. Also it leaks a fair bit if you want to travel with it or take it in your bag to work which is annoying. And the design of the package means that quite a bit of the deodorant is wasted when you reach the end because it gets squished inside the dispenser and won't come out. Its so frustrating, I can see it through the clear bottle but I have to throw it out, and at $14 a hit I hate wasting so much!
Overall, semi-effective for heavy perspirers. Smells nice and spreads easily, but leaks, packaging design wastes a significant amount of the product and it's expensive and leaves white marks.

Goods and bads
Quite pricey at nearly $15. The tube winds up a cream like substance which you don't need much of. It works wonders in terms of ceasing sweat. Downsides are that I find it doesn't wash off that well and takes a few washes to get it off leaving my skin feel dry.

i started using this product about 6 months ago, i was a bit skeptical the first time i used it, but to my amazement, this really works.
I find that i dont actually sweat at all (if i do there is No odour anyway) while im using it, i put it on after my shower and thats it, i dont have to worry for two days, not once have i been out and thought 'oh no, its that me that stinks'.
i have only found one downfall, it can leave a powdery residue, but i happily put up with that.... definitely, highly recommend this product to everyone!

Good for moderate perspiration
I have this in the Purple scent from their Fragrance collection which is my fave one I've tried so far. It is a creamy paste that you wind up out of the container and then apply to your underarms. I use this before bed & sometimes still if I've forgotten in the mornings before I head out.
I've used Driclor in the past which you can get from pharmacies and that product is a roll-on that completely 100% if applied before bed will stop all sweating. So comparing the two Rexona's anti-perspirant works about 70% to stop sweat coming through I would say, myself being a heavy sweater.
I use this daily as Driclor is very harsh on my skin and can be a bit unconformable most of the time, so I only use that when necessary. Overall I do think this product does actually stop perspiration to some extent and I would def recommend this to others.

I have issues with sweat and odour relating to my under arms and this product does an alright job of hiding it. Better then any other product I've tried, but I still need extra protection during the day.

This product is great and has put a stop to my odor and sweating. The only thing I didn't like about this was the colour of it, it showed through my sleeveless tops.

Rexona Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant Deodorant for Women has saved me from excessive sweating! I apply it right after I shower and I am sweat and odour free the next morning! It has a fresh scent that doesn't irritate my skin. I apply it once after I shower and again in the morning to keep me sweat and odour free during the day. A great product that I now cannot live without!

This is the second clincial anti-perspirent that I've tried and I have to say, they are undoubtedly leaps and bounds ahead of other deodorants. While I have found other deodorants that do a pretty good job, these actually work.
I'll be honest, I don't like the packaging in these - I think they're unhygienic and not that practical. That aside, the actual product is great - you pop it on before bed (it really does work better this way. Still works well when done in the morning though...hard to get into the habit of putting deodorant on at night!) and it does a great of keeping you dry.
I have to admit that while this one is good, in my opinion the Dove one is slightly better. Thought I'd try this because it was on sale and the Dove one wasn't and it is definitely better than any aerosol I've tried but 'd be repurchasing the Dove one before this.

Clinical Protection a Must
I have found this is the only Deoderant worth buying in Australia, due to the humidity & heat, I sweat profusely and cannot stand it when on the train and it's running down my arms, no other Deoderant works like this one, put it on after shower and it lasts all day, no smelly armpits at the end of the day & I don't have to go and freshen up & re apply anymore.

Total stink beater!!
I am a bit of a smelly person, unfortunately. I am not so stinky that you assume I am on a personal quest to replenish Sydney's dwindling water supplies by going on a shower ban, more like if you get a whiff of you think 'oh, poor woman. She mustn't have had time to shower today'. My slight stinkiness, however, is made more noticeable by the fact that my husband has absolutely no body odor - that's right - he has a 0% stink factor rating. His feet don't smell, he never gets BO and, even after a super sesh at the gym he comes back smelling salty and manly but still not stinky. It's actually quite annoying because it then makes him hyper-aware of any stinkiness in his vicinity. We will be in the car and he will suddenly, not so subtly exclaim 'I smell BO'. We both know who he is referring to...
When the opportunity to trial Rexona Clinical Protection anti-perspirant deodorant came up I jumped at the chance. I had to know whether it would work as well as they claimed. Well, it did. It is amazing...but I will get to that in a minute!
To use, you twist the ring at the bottom two clicks and then enough product squirts out the holes in the top of the stick. Apply it as you would any other deodorant. For some reason I always used 3-4 clicks. This was way too much product but I just couldn't help myself - my fear of being stinky was too strong! It doesn't take long to dry at all. I would apply it before brushing my teeth and moisturising and it was always dry by the time I was ready to get dressed.
They recommend that you apply the product before bed. The reason for this is that it sort of water proofs the arm pits so you want it well and truly dry and sunk in by the time you have your shower in the morning. I did try doing it this way - and it worked perfectly, no stinkiness at all, but I only shower in the mornings so I felt a bit weird never washing my arm pits. I ended up switching to using it after my morning shower. My arm pits always felt funny when I would first try to wash them as they were genuinely water proofed - they would repel the water. I had to use soap or shower gel to remove the deodorant and this left them feeling normal again.
Rexona also recommend that you can go 48 hours without reapplying deodorant. I took this for a test drive and they weren't far off the mark. By the end of day two - probably around the 45 hour mark, I started noticing the first whiffs of BO. It was very faint, and others probably wouldn't have noticed (well my husband might have, but normal non-hyper-sensitive-to-any-odor people wouldn't have noticed). I tended to use it daily as I loved the protection that it offered, plus I am in the habit of applying deodorant daily and that's a hard habit to break! But it is relieving to know that if you ever did forget to apply this for one day you won't suddenly become a stink bug again.
As well as not being at all stinky, I was absolutely bone dry all day. There was never any wet patches under my arms. In fact, it never even felt humid under there, only completely dry. The was seriously amazing for me!
The was one tiny issue that stopped this from being perfection in a bottle and that was white marks on black clothing. Unfortunately, it left them. This was perhaps because I was applying too much product and I suspect that if you applied it in the evening like the instructions recommended then this wouldn't be an issue for you at all. The white marks were easy enough to remove, though, so it really wasn't much of a hassle at all. Quite frankly, the most important thing to me in a deodorant is to banish the stinkies and wetness - if it can deliver on that then I can deal with any other issues that arise. So, the white marks would not be enough to stop me from buying the deodorant.
The RRP is $13.99 for 45ml which is not cheap for a deodorant. However, if you are sensitive about your stinkies then it is money well spent as you can guarantee you will be BO-free all day. The deodorant lasted me about 6 weeks, though I was over using it. It said to apply 2 clicks worth of product but I always used 3-4 so you probably should get at least two months out of it. So, a tube doesn't last overly long, especially for the price paid (I think I was getting at least 4+ months out of my $5 Mitchum); however, no deodorant I have ever used has performed as well as this one so it honestly is money very well spent (if you are somewhat sensitive about your stinkiness). Would I repurchase it? Absolutely! I will not use anything else this summer and it seems quite unlikely that I will ever go back to standard deodorants after having just experiencing 6 weeks of having a 0% stink factor rating!
