Blab About Beauty Tuesday: Nivea Deodorant- Double Effect Violet Senses

by - Tuesday, May 17, 2011

Product name: Nivea Double Effect Violet Senses

Product description: Specially designed formula with natural avocado extract which softens the skin for smoother underarms, allowing you to get a close shave. The delicate flower fragrance provides 24 hour anti-perspirant protection and is alcohol free.

Product directions: Hold can 15cm from the underarm and spray. Do not apply to broken or irritated skin. Allow to dry before dressing.

My thoughts: So maybe I was lured by the lovely lilac can but right from the first spray the flower fragrance had me hooked. I loved everything about this deodorant. The gorgeous scent is delightfully delicate and not too overpowering which is really calming after a stressful day. It was gentle enough to use on my sensitive prone skin and after a week of use my skin was considerably softer. I was doubtful that it would deliver on its promise of a closer shave but I was surprisingly impressed with the results. However, I found that I needed to apply it both morning and night to fight perspiration.

The pros:

  • Alcohol free
  • lovely non-overpowering sent
  • softens skin
  • provides a closer save
  • perfect for sensitive skin

The cons:

  • doesn't provide complete 24 hour protection as it claims. I found I had to re-apply and most days I'm at home. It's not a product I would recommend if you sweat excessively.
Would I purchase this again?: It's not a product I would buy for the Australian summer but I would definitely buy it again in the winter months.
