Nivea Whitening Deodorant Anti Perspirant Roll On

I have been an avid user of deodorants and body mists for many years now. I love the way these work for me in keeping me fresh the whole day. This time I thought of experimenting with something else which I had not used before and so bought this roll on from Nivea. This product is the latest addition in my Nivea kitty. I just love Nivea products. The product being reviewed here is “Nivea Whitening Deodorant Anti Perspirant Roll On”.

Price: 165 INR for 50ml

Packaging: Comes in sturdy, curvy beautiful transparent glass bottle with a wide plastic roll on and a white screw cap.
Shelf Life: 2 years

My experience with the roll on:
I have been using this for the past 15 days now on a regular basis. It has kept all its claims of being antiperspirant but I still have some qualms about the fairness factor as I have a bit dark underarms as compared to the rest of the arm skin but there is no improvement noticed. I does the job of keeping body odor and sweat at bay by giving you a mild fragrance which lingers on for the whole day. You can just spray your favorite perfume of body mist and you are all set. You need not worry about the factor of you smelling fresh all the day as it will take care of it in a pretty good manner. No burning sensation and no tingling. You need to roll the bottle 2-3 times on the underarm area and let it dry for a minute. Get dressed and ta da. :) All sorted. But one thing you need to keep in mind is please don’t forget to wash your underarms before going to bed as anti-perspirants clog the pores of your skin to reduce the secretion of sweat particles. This is my perception and may be scientifically correct in some other way. I personally remove all the deodorants and perspirants from my skin by simply washing them properly before sleeping.

Pros of the Nivea Roll-On Deodorant

  • Contains the extracts of Licorice (menat for skin whitening)
  • Contains witch hazel extracts which keeps skin soft and moisturized
  • Has a mild fragrance which lingers on for the whole day
  • Keeps sweat at bay effectively

Cons of the Nivea Roll-On Deodorant

Ingredient list is again loaded with chemicals of every possible group

Final Verdict: I would buy this roll on as I love the way it works and totally does the job perfectly except for the whitening part though. May be in the later run it could do what it claims. Rest I have no issues buying this again. Will buy this for sure.. ☺

Then I’ll have to be patient Tanvi as there is almost 99% product left in-spite of me using it daily for almost 20 days.

Tanvi July 4, 2012 at 2:42 pm

I picked this up by mistake (not the roll on, the spray) and regretted it when I saw ‘fairer underarms’. Why is India so fairness obsessed!! What next, fairer ears? Fairer ankles? >.<

Reply

Pallavi July 4, 2012 at 3:30 pm

Nandini its nothing about India being fairness obsessed… People do get patchy dark underarms with continuous usage of Alcohol based deodorants… This is just the remedy… Wish you had noticed the good things apart from the fairness factor.. :)

I had commented on this but I guess it was removed/didn’t work…anyway, to each their own! :)

I have used this and I like the mild fragrance of this deo. The only problem that bothers me is that it is an anti-perspirant. Have read really nasty things about anti-perspirants causing cancer.

Pallavi July 4, 2012 at 3:34 pm

Richa you are scaring me now using that cancer word.. :-o Sometimes I also feel that it would be harmful but… You know.. :) This is the first time I have used a roll on and completely loved it!!!!

pallavi i had the thai version of this and honestly it did nothing in making my underarms light but i loved the mild fragrance and gentleness of it. :)

Reply

Pallavi July 4, 2012 at 5:45 pm

To be very frank i still have to count on that fairness factor but yes I am totally in love with everything else.. :)

I used nivea whitening deo not because i have dark armpit problem but because i have wet armpit problem. It feels so uncomfortable to see wet marks on underarm so i decided to try nivea. This is my first deodorant since i dont have smelly armpit problem. Unfortunately, one-week of using this product my armpit became dark and it didn’t lessen my sweaty underarms. Though i love its smells. It lasts 24hrs. But it didnt hinder the fact that it didnt solve my problem and now i have dark underams
