We have a confession: when we get nervous, we sweat. Whether it’s the stress of a new situation or a fast-approaching deadline, tricky situations call for long-lasting protection. In our quest for a product that actually works, we put Dove’s Go Fresh™ anti-perspirant to the test. With a variety of scents to choose from, we’re pleased to report that Dove has us covered all day, everyday.
We tested: Dove Go Fresh™ anti-perspirant in Cool Essentials scent.
Rating: 4 out of 5.
Where to Buy: Shoppers Drug Mart, approximately $5.00.
How to Use: Apply a thin layer to underarms.
Pros: For us, both scent and long-lasting effectiveness are top priorities. Luckily, Dove fits both of these criteria with ease. Cool Essentials smells fresh and clean, but it isn’t overpowering. It lasted well into our workday, and left a clean burst of fragrance whenever we stood up. When evening rolled by, we were still feeling dry and smelling great.
Cons: Since the product is a white solid instead of a clear gel, it left a mark on one of our tester’s black t-shirts. This, of course, is easily avoided by waiting a minute or two for the product to absorb before putting on clothing, but it’s still a factor to consider. Having tested gels in the past, we found we preferred the solid formula, but Dove also makes a great aerosol option that you may want to try if solids aren’t for you.
Overall impression: We really liked the product, plain and simple. With so many different scents, it’s easy to find one that best appeals to you. Even better? The product works just as well as it smells.
Beyond providing products that work, we also love Dove for their mandate of embracing beauty in all shapes and sizes. This is especially visible in their “Self-Esteem Project”, which is actively working to help girls overcome beauty-related anxieties. With a new school year just around the corner, this message is particularly poignant.
No matter what life throws our way, with Dove, our underarms (and our shirts) stay clean and dry.
