Unsightly deodorant marks on otherwise pristine clothing can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you’ve just tried something on and discarded it for a better option. White, crusty and yellowing marks are the stuff of nightmares, being somewhat embarrassing and causing us to keep our arms firmly by our sides. I’ve tried lots of deodorants before that claim to leave no marks, but even the best can leave a layer of creamy build-up on the surface of material that’s hard to budge. Dove has been my deodorant brand of choice for as long as I can remember, it providing delicate care and intense protection while drying as quickly as I need it to. When they asked me to put their Invisible Dry deodorant to the test to see if it really could stand up to 100 different colours, I got my bright outfits at the ready and waited with baited breath to see the results.
I’ve literally been spraying this stuff like a mad woman onto every different colour I could find, secretly hoping I could prove them wrong and find a shade that showed the formula up. Green, yellow, orange, blue, navy, red, white, cream… All of them were left in tact, with no marks whatsoever, after a blast of Invisible Dry. The formula is totally transparent, leaving no residue or disclolouration on even the darkest of garments. It’s incredibly light and doesn’t cause any build-up under the arms of clothes, even when re-applied throughout the day. Being the cynic that I am, I really wanted to prove their claim wrong – but there’s yet to be a colour I can find that this stuff can’t stand up against. With 0% alcohol and up to 48hrs protection (you dirty stop-out,) there’s no reason why you wouldn’t want to give this a whirl for yourself.
Dove’s Invisible Dry deodorant is available in a stick, spray and roll-on format, with prices starting from around £2.30.
