Garnier Mineral Deodorant (Women) Review
Garnier launched their mineral range of deodorants this summer for men and women. They claim that the deodorants contain mineralite, an ultra absorbing mineral of volcanic origin, which provides protection up to 48 hours. The men’s version was endorsed by Bollywood actor John Abraham. The women’s deodorants; however, haven’t been that aggressively marketed. Here, we review the two variants of the women’s range – Extra Care and Absolute Dry.
Name of the Product:

My Review of Garnier Mineral Deodorants:
The deodorant cans are attractive and have a feminine appearance with a white background and green print and Absolute Dry written in pink while Extra Care is in purple.
It has a green cap with a simple spray button, which is a little hard to press initially. It eases up eventually.
The directions for use and product claim are mentioned clearly on the back of the can.
The fragrances are different for both – POWDER FRESH for the Absolute Dry variant and FLORAL FRESH for the Extra Care variant. Absolute Dry also lists talc among its ingredients. It didn’t smell too much like powder, though the fragrance was pleasant. Extra Care, on the other hand, does smell like flowers.
The revolutionary ingredient, Minerlite (Perlite) is an ultra absorbent mineral from volcanic origin that naturally and continuously absorbs humidity due to its porous structure.
Directions for use are to dry underarms carefully after a shower or bath. Shake well and spray at a distance of 15 cm from underarms.
Both the deodorants last for a whole day. I cannot vouch for 48-hour protection since I didn’t subject myself to such an extreme situation. Immediately on spraying, both deodorants give a slight tingling sensation for a few seconds, which disappears instantly. The Extra Care variant is, as it says, soothing on shaved skin and does not cause any irritation. No residue is seen on skin or clothes and the fresh feeling lasts throughout the day. The fragrance dies down a little towards the end of the day, so I’m not sure it would actually withstand 48 hours.

Cons of Garnier Mineral Deodorant
1. Fragrance doesn’t seem like it can last beyond a day.
2. Not sure if the claim of 48 hours is valid.
Overall, a very reliable product, especially in extreme Indian summers and humid monsoons, using this deodorant is a life saver. Its main claims – long lasting and fresh feeling while being easy on the skin – are all true. Mineralite does its job!
