This product is pretty good.. I'm normally a deodorant/antipersperant user and have been since I was about... Well, as long as I can remember!! Antiperspirants last forever on me.. I can say (yeah it's pretty wrong, but I'mma say it anyway! LoL!) that antiperspirants last more than 24 hours on me.. There are lazy weekend days, it's just me and hubby no visitors expected I'm not going anywhere... I might lay around all day and just skip a shower that day.. And the Degree Antiperspirant stays in full effect until the next shower. I've showered and forgot to reapply the antiperspirant and I think it was STILL in effect.. So we know antiperspirant lasts and lasts..
But this is DEODORANT.. NO sweat control. Just odor protection. Deodorants don't stop you from sweating.. And I'm thinking that's a good thing. We're supposed to sweat. It releases toxins and we can all afford to lose some of those nasty little bugger, right. I also read that there was MAYBE a link between the chemically altered aluminum (The stuff that stops sweating by blocking up sweat ducts.) and breast cancer. So I figure why worry about sweating so much. It's the ODOR that bugs us. So I'm on Deodorants now... And this was my first try at it...
Product Name: Degree Deordorant Silver Ion Technology
Scent: Intense Sport Smells like a typical men's deodorant or body wash. I like it for myself and my man could wear it too. Chemistry plays such a role in how things smell on a person. Even men's fragrances will smell oddly feminine on a female.. Good for me, who loves men's deodorants.
Sales Pitch: You have just picked up the first men's deodorant with SILVER ION TECHNOLOGY!
What are Silver Ions? High- tech odor fighters so effective they are used by sports brands, the military, an deven space agencies to fight odor in their top performance apparel.
Ingredients: Dipropylene Glycol, Water(aqua), Propylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Poloxamine 1307, Fragrance, Aminomethyl Propanol, Disodium EDTA, BHT, Diethylhexyl Sodium Suflfosuccinate, Silver Chloride, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Green 3 (CI 42053)
How well does it work? Pretty good. It lasts a good 8 hours, maybe more. Then you have to reapply. It goes on easy and as I said before it smell really good. The slightly musky scent really helps mask... Well.. Your slightly musky scent.. Which though it sounds obsurd, is actually a good thing. I don't think there's a women's version because sweat apparently makes women melt or something. There are crystal deodorants available, but with out scent.. I'm not really into that. I love fragrance... Letting myself sweat is natural enough for me.. Baby steps....
Would I rebuy? Absolutely!!! I plan to try many brands, (I've been eyeing that Tom's of Maine Deodorant.. Lovely citrus scent.. Yeah, I opened and smell it in the store. Wally world to be precise.) I will definately stock this in my home. I love it.. Only issue I have is the same issue I have with EVERYTHING! Sometimes there's a little irritation from it- Especially if I use too much. I have to get the amount down as I tend to like to COAT my pits with what EVER I use under there. I think I can use a lot less than I actually do. Actually it would probably work better if I didn't over use it.. Kind of like detergent build up can cause your clothes to stink. (Weird right?) Anyway, this product is a keeper... Just kinda wish they'd come up with one for women... And women would tolerate a little sweat. :)
