Rexona Naturals 48h BioProtection Active Spray
Hi Ladies, First of all, let me thank you for your nice comments on my first review – that’s really motivating! 🙂
Today I’m going to write about Rexona Naturals 48h BioProtection Active Spray. Rexona is a very popular brand in my country and I read that you can get it in India, but unfortunately I haven’t seen this product here yet. Perhaps I’m looking in the wrong places or it’s labeled with a different name, like “Sure” in the UK and Ireland or “Degree” in the USA and Canada?
Anyway, the company claims that Rexona Naturals BioProtection is a new series of women’s antiperspirants that contain natural ingredients and work in harmony with your body, providing effective and long-lasting protection against sweating. The fragrance ingredients are closed in microcapsules that are gradually activated when your body’s temperature is rising due to physical exercises, high emotions or other factors – just when you need it. It has been proved that the unique combination of ingredients prevents you from excessive perspiration for 48 hours.
Complete list of ingredients:
Butabe, Isobutane, Propane, Aluminium Chlorohydrate, PPG-14 Butyl Ether, Cyclomethicone, Parfum, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Octyldodecanol, BHT, Dimethiconol, Propylene Carbonate, Citrus Grandis Peel Oil, Cympobogon Schoenanthus Plant Oil, Citric Acid, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Eugenol, Geraniol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Linalool.

My Thoughts on Rexona Naturals 48h BioProtection Active Spray
The scent of Rexona antiperspirant is quite intensive right after application, so I spray it in the bedroom because my bathroom is too small and I usually start to choke (but trust me, my current bathroom is a real cupboard). Fortunately just after a few seconds all you can smell is delicate fragrance that gives you a feeling of freshness and doesn’t clash with your perfumes.
It has no alcohol among its ingredients and it doesn’t irritate my skin, even shortly after shaving. Drying quickly is a big plus, but be sometimes it can leave white stains on your darker clothes (they’re not extreme, though).
This product was incredibly effective for me when I was back home – even on hot or stressful days it would reduce underarm wetness completely. However, “hot” in Europe and “hot” in Asia are totally different things. Here in India Rexona works for me very well only during the evening or when I’m indoors. On the other hand it’s obvious that you simply can’t stop sweating when it’s 38°C outside and the air is awfully moist. A huge advantage is that this spray always eliminates odor caused by perspiration, regardless the temperature.
I must admit I wasn’t bold enough to check if the protection effect lasts 48 hours. Sorry Rexona, you’re pretty cool but I still need my shower.
Pros and Cons of Rexona Naturals 48h BioProtection Active Spray
+ Has a subtle fresh smell that still works fine with your perfumes
+ Stops underarm wetness completely in colder climates
+ Reduces perspiration odor in every temperature
+ Alcohol-free; doesn’t irritate the skin
+ Very efficient – one antiperspirant lasts more than a month with everyday use
+ There is a blockage that can be useful when you travel or if you have children who love playing with your cosmetics
– Might stain your dark clothes
– Doesn’t make you stop sweating when it’s extremely hot (but I guess blocking it would be unhealthy then)
My rating: 4.5 out of 5 – I definitely recommend!
