Somewhere around fifth grade or so, my mom bought me some deodorant. I don't think I actually really needed it, but it's just kind of one of those rights of passage things that all kids go through at that age. For some reason, I could never get in the habit of applying deodorant everyday, and went most of my life without it.
I was really active in high school. In ninth grade I played varsity tennis, club soccer, freshman cheerleading, and ran indoor and outdoor track in the winter and spring. Being as active as I was, I still never got in the habit of applying deodorant because practices were always after school, and I would go home and shower right after anyways.
Fast forward ten years later, I still never really wore deodorant, but had Derek luckily to confirm to me that I never really had body odor that merited the necessity for deodorant. That's been the major reason why I've never worn it. For whatever reason, my body just doesn't produce an odor that needs covering.
A few weeks ago though I was at Target and saw their large selection of Dove Advanced Care Deodorant and all the amazing scents they had when a large idea dawned on me. I may not have an odor that needs covering, but why not where deodorant enhance myself, and make myself smell like something refreshing, instead of absolutely nothing.
I picked up a couple of the "cool essentials" scent and was amazed by how much of a difference adding a fresh scent each day can make! Derek even came home one day and said, "hmm... you smell nice." Proof to the pudding that there is something to this entire deodorant thing after all.
When I get super excited about a new product, I typically like to shout it from the rooftops and tell everyone I know about it. I recently shared a tube to my friend Sarah who is an avid deodorant user, and she said, "Yeah it smells great, but I love how fresh my underarms still feel at the end of the day even more!" She was probably more excited about upgrading her deodorant even more than I was about just adding it to my daily routine.
With summer right around the corner, I'm glad that Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection plus added skincare benefits with Dove ¼ moisturizers and NutriumMoisture for softer, smoother underarms. With summer right around the corner, I'm glad that I'll smell, and feel fresh all summer long thanks to Dove Advanced Care.
