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?
