Dove Maximum Protection GoFresh Cucumber and Green Tea Review
I am a relatively recent convert to Dove deodorant's (see this post) and when the offer came in to try out Dove Maximum Protection I was interested to know whether it would perform and took up the challenge.
Scientifically proven protection against wetness.
Delivers all-day freshness through odour-fighting technology
Cares for your skin with Dove 1/4 moisturising cream
The crisp, nature -inspired fragrance of cucumber and green tea leaves a refreshingly light sensation for your underarms
How to use
Recommended dose is two clicks. For optimal effect, apply to underarms before going to bed (the directions say that the protection lasts throughout the following day even after a shower! I will try this out). Can also be applied in the morning.
I applied it first thing in the morning and gave it a while to dry before dressing
Yesterday was one of the hottest days of the year, I was travelling to London by tube, dashing in and out doors and would be out most of the day. In short one of the best days to put Dove Maximum Protection to the test. As I was going to be meeting a lot of people I was a little apprehensive of trying something new...
As it happened the day was longer and hotter than I imagined. This was in part due to transport woes involving the tubes and buses and the added fact that the Olympic Torch was in the Borough of Enfield.
I found the cucumber and green tea scent to be very pleasant, light and fresh.
Does it work?
I can hand on heart say this is the best anti perspirant deodorant I have ever used. Despite the extreme heat and activity, I was completely dry all day and throughout the obscenely warm night and remained smelling wonderful. Yes it costs more than the average deodorant but its performance is far superior. Amazing.
Dove Maximum Protection costs £5.10 for 45ml and is available in 3 variants - Original Clean, gofresh Cucumber and Green Tea and gofresh Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena.
