Review: Nivea Vs Dove Whitening Deo

Hi Ladies, today I am going to review the effect of two popular deodorants. The use of deodorants is very important, especially if you are going out for a function or maybe it’s just your routine day at work. A deo helps mask the bad underarm odour that is caused by the bacteria that multiplies as a result of the moisture in the sweat.

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about these new deos that not only fights bad odour effectively but also has some whitening effect on the underarms.

Let’s have a look at two of the most talked names in whitening deodorants.

Nivea Whitening Deo

What the brand claims:

• Visibly fairer underarms
• 48hr reliable protection
• Apply to underarm

Products Pros:

• Contains Licorice- that is knows as a natural whitening agent
• Contains Witch Hazel – an astringent i.e. it closes skin pores and prevent excessive sweating
• Has a nice pleasant fragrance
• Does not case irritation on contact with the skin
• Dries quickly when sprayed, doesn’t leave any white patch behind.

Product Cons:

 48 hr protection seems to be just a marketing trick.
