Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

I am a chronic underarm-sweating person and it has been a cause of much embarrassment for me for long. It is not just the sweat patches that have perennially stained the armpits of all my clothes, but the strong mal-odour as well that I have suffered from :yuck:. I have hence tried all sorts of treatments including home remedies but all proved futile. Talcum powders and normal deodorants were of no use as even in the severe Delhi winters, my underarm areas continued to remain drenched.

I realised gradually that the problem lay deeper, as I traced it to my food-habits. :struggle:  I am a lover of onions and highly-oily foods with great salt content and to add to that (rather worsen!!) I seldom drink water!! :chewnails: I had tried to change my dietary habits, but alas, old habits die hard was proved in my case! :-/ Therefore, I resumed my search for other products that would tackle this dire condition of mine and that’s when amongst my numerous exeriments, I decided to try the Dove Anti-Perspirant Deodorants.


Rs. 160 for 169 ML.

Shelf Life:

36 months.

My Experience with Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant:

The Dove Anti-Perspirant Deodorants come in three variants, I tried out the original variant, but did not like it at all. It was of no help to me at all as it did not tackle the problem of sweat and neither did it have a pleasant fragrance to impart. On the contrary, I found it to be quite unbearable and threw the bottle mid-way!!! :spank:

I did go ahead and brave the decision to buy the next variant, the Silk Dry and the result has proved to be a turning point in the history of under-arm sweat problems for me!!!

Dove Silk Dry was the answer to all my problems I had ever imagined in all my dreams!!! :woot: It proved to be this wholesome solution to all under-arm problems such as sweating, mal-odour and taking care of under-arm skin.

Here is my analysis:

Why I Worship Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant:

  • It absorbs sweat like magic and I do not sweat for 24 hours!! YES 24 HOURS!!!! :jiggy1:
  • The anti-perspirant has only a very mild fragrance which lasts till the end, but more importantly prevents the produce of any mal-odour!! :jaiho:
  • Staying true to the brand name and its USP, the ¼ moisturisation actually works to make the underarm skin absolutely soft and smooth and beautiful right from the first use!!!! :inlove:
  • It also works in lightening the colour of the underarms as the armpits do not remain dark anymore with daily use :heart:
  • Totally worth the price :yes:
  • Great quantity to last about 2 months with just a single spray on either sides.
  • Quickly dries after spraying, so no need to wait for the deo to get absorbed or leave wet white patches on the skin :haanji:

Negligible Cons of Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant:

  • The nozzle of the bottle is a little difficult to use as it’s a little hard to press.
  • If you are carrying the bottle in a large bag kept with other things, the cap might sometimes come off.
  • For those who prefer strong fruity or floral fragrance in their deos, this one does not meet that criterion as it has a really mild smell.

My Take on Dove Silk Dry Anti-Perspirant Deodorant:

I am truly madly in love with the Dove Silk Dry and despise the original variant. The original variant does nothing to prevent sweat. It took ages for the deo to get absorbed into the skin after application. The smell of the “Original” was horrifying for me and made me nauseous!!! :hunterwali:

But the Silk Dry is the answer to all my prayers and I am a devout user of it now.  I am in my third bottle and don’t plan to change it ever (unless I happen to try something better, that too by accident :P) and I very strongly recommend it to all those who suffer from all kinds of under-arm problems :waytogo:
