Deodorants are important, we all know that. I hope you know that! Well, if you didn’t, there, I told you!
Monday I realized I ran out of my Rexona, and needed to buy a new deodorant before I left for the States. I do have a deodorant dilemma though. It’s really hard for me to find the one that works well. While living in NYC I have even tried some natural/herbal brands, like Tom’s, some other kind that smelled like baby powder, and another one that had aloe extract. Needless to say the last one was pretty useless, but at least the money went to breast cancer research, so I can feel good about donating.
A few days ago I saw an ad about Nivea’s new deodorant Invisible for black and white. It says that it doesn’t leave white marks on black clothes and prevent yellow stains on white. It’s also alcohol free and is supposed to last for 48 hours.
The other deodorant that I’ve been dying to use is Camay. Now that one has more scent to it. I chose the Pink grapefruit. This one promises to stay for 24 hours, and well that’s the only promise it makes. I do like the design, all the twirls and bubbles.
Size wise Camay has a little more to offer, 5 grams more, to be exact. So that doesn’t really make a difference. Price wise, they are about the same, Nivea is a little more expensive, I also had a discount at the store, so that evened the price out. Scent wise Camay kicks Nivea’s ass big time. I guess when it comes to deodorants I prefer scented ones. But if you like neutral scents or prefer non-scented deodorants over everything else, then Nivea is for you.
So what I did, was wear both deodorants at the same time. You know how in the commercials they use one under one armpit, and the other under a different one? Yes, that’s exactly what I did. I also wore them through a workout. And I could definitely smell Camay, which I liked. Again, this is my personal opinion.
The verdict: Camay definitely won me over, but because of Nivea’s no marks on black and white, I will continue to use it as well. Both deodorants have their advantages and drawbacks, I hope you pick the one that’s right for you!
