Dove Men+Care 48 Hour Non-Irritant Antiperspirant/Deodorant Review



Antiperspirant is the number one weapon against underarm odor. Dry underarms provide an unwelcoming environment for body odor causing bacteria. Without wetness, the pungent smells we associate with underarms don’t develop into the showstoppers they can after a hearty workout or when we sweat a a big presentation. Antiperspirants plug up sweat glands, keeping underarms free of moisture and as a result odor. However the underarms also feature some of the bodies most sensitive skin. For some a careless swipe of just any old antiperspirant can lead to a lot more than just sweat prevention. Those with sensitive underarms experience rash, irritation, and chafing as a result of most antiperspirants. However sensitive, these armpits still produce sweat and strong odors. This often leaves those with sensitive armpits in a Catch-22. They either deal with uncomfortable and itchy pits in exchange for freshness, or eschew antiperspirant for comfort and endure the resulting odor.
