Old Spice Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant | Wednesday Obsession

Unknown-25

Yes, you read the title right! Today, it’s all about men’s classic anti-perspirant/deodorant… for girls! A lot of you are probably already in on this secret but I guess I was living under a rock and no one thought of sharing this news with me!

Before I start talking about my new obsession with Old Spice men’s deodorant & anti-perspirant, let me tell you about my underarms situation. My left armpit is perfectly normal but the right one is causing me some heartaches; I sweat like a horse and let me be honest, it does smell after a while, no matter how many showers a day I take. My work makes me interact with a lot of people all day long, so I’m definitely self-conscious about my possible smelling problem. And in summer, I absolutely need to put a strong aluminium potion concocted by my pharmacist to make hot days more bearable for my surroundings! Most of you will possibly suggest to just go and get Botox, but frankly, the first time I will have Botox, it will be on my face (and yes, I’m starting to consider it)!

Boy, that was a long introduction, but heck, it’s my reality and this blog is as real as it gets. How did I get to try men’s deodorant/anti-perspirent anyway? A month ago, I was at my local Walmart (no publicity intended) and I was scrolling down the women deodorant/anti-perspirant section to find a replacement to my legendary Secrets Vanilla anti-perspirant. I used this one for ages but it wasn’t really working for me anymore. Honest to god, I’m there sniffing all those horrible baby powder, breeze something and the awful Lavender when I saw a girl go to the men’s side, grab Old Spice in Wolfthorn and leave 😳! I thought that this girl was just buying her boyfriend a deodorant. But not even 2 minutes later, another girl comes and picks up the same one 😳! I thought: “there is no way this is a coincidence”. I then venture into the men’s section and was amazed! I wrongfully thought all men’s anti-perspirents smelled like Irish Spring; you know the strong “greenery”, over the top men’s smell (but not BeardMan, he smells delicious)! Mixed with my sweats, this  combination would stink a place. But OMG, this stuff smells AMAZING! I mean Girlie amazing, perfect for me since I love sweet smells. Now that it’s been months using it, I won’t go back to the girl stuff EVER! I’m Obsessed…

What’s not to love …

♥ More Affordable (I paid $3,59Cnd) since there is much more product for almost the same price than the ones for women (plus, I always wait for special deals),

♥Smells ridiculously amazing (truly unisex)! Fiji and Bearglove scents are also super yummy,

♥ Works way better at keeping my B.O at bay,

♥ Easy to find since every drugstores carry them.

Who knew I would one day wear men’s armpit stuff. I even secretly saw BeardMan “forgetting” his regular product (yeah, right!) and venturing into my Wolfthorn! Hooray for more product (quantity wise) and better performances… Old Spice, you rock! Next time, you should definitely go have a look into the Men section; Other brands must have great smelling products too!!

Does any of you would have a recommendation for a cruelty-free, STRONG anti-perspirant??? I’ve tried so many but nothing works (for my right side that is).

What’s your favorite deodorant/anti-perspirant?

Wednesday Beauty Obsession ✰ Sephora Collection Pro Contour Kabuki #82

Wednesday Beauty Obsession

I’ve been obsessed with the Sephora Collection Pro Contour Kabuki #82 brush for the longest time (longest = two weeks to be exact). As I’m always looking for the best deals,  I purchased it, on sale, on Sephora’s website for less than half price ($21CND)! I know the sale section is always tricky; most of the time it’s full of shitty lesser quality products that don’t sell well, it’s use to sell off some Limited Edition products (these are the sale I ADORE – think of The Urban Decay X Gwen Stefani eyeshadow and blush palette) or like in the case of this Kabuki #82 brush, it suggests some discontinued items.

This brush piqued my curiosity mainly because of its unique shape and in-store, the bristles felt so good and soft; but expending $48CND for a strange contour brush was a total non sense budget wise! This was then and now, I’m a proud owner and I’m in love!!!

Sephora Collection Pro Contour Kabuki #82

Cruelty-free obsessed…

What it is:
An all-in-one sculpting and shaping brush that can be used under the eye, hollows of the cheeks, and around the jaw area.

What it does:
Define your best features and achieve an allover makeup look with this Pro Contour brush. Featuring an innovative design for multi-direction blending on the entire face, it allows you to seamlessly shade, contour, highlight, and blend product. Its curved-tip bristles fit into facial grooves and corners of the face for a flawless finish, making application simple with just a few strokes.

🐰What else you need to know:
This product is not tested on animals.

Softness obsessed…

This brush breezes so softly on my skin, I can’t express enough how luxurious it feels.

Fabrication obsessed…

It’s well-built no doubt about it, and on the plus side, NO shedding to report! For this review purpose, I really tried to pull off a couple of bristles, with no success (You see how thorough of a blogger  I really am – Wink-Wink)!!

Cream bronzer/contour obsessed…

You’ve been living under a rock or never read my blog if you didn’t notice how Ga-Ga I am about cream contouring/bronzing products! This brush may be good for other purposes but for me, it’s the ideal tool to perfectly apply creamy goodnesses. And after trying it this morning, it also works really good with highlighters and blushes. Come to think of it, maybe it’s multi-purpose after all!!!

Tiny obsessed…

From the website picture, it looks like a big, bulky brush but it’s super tiny. Being on the smaller side is absolutely not a problem as the handle makes it really easy to work with. Not that it should matter but this brush is a cuty pie! ADORABLE

BUT… (there is always a but)

All of that being said, I must point out that if you go and purchase this brush to create an “Instagram” contour with really defined cheekbones, you’ll probably hate it. You’ll probably find it too big and not precise enough (it’s a dense-type brush but it fans out when pressing it). But, if like 99% of us regular girls (and boys) that never went for the Kardhasian look because daah!, we live in the real world, I think you will find this brush is a super deal and worth every penny. It would definitely have a place of choice in your brush collection…

Note: This brush doesn’t appear to be on the US Sephora website anymore, so this one is just for my Canadian Beauty Addicts! Maybe US girls should visit the Canadian site? With the exchange rate, it’s even more of a deal…

I almost want to buy a second one !!!🙊
