The Dove VoxBox

I was lucky enough to receive another VoxBox from Influenster. This time it was for Dove's new Advanced Care Deodorant! 

I received this product complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster

I have always been a huge fan of Dove products. I use their soap and regular deodorant so I was excited to try out the new Advanced Care deodorant. The "New Dove Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant Deodorant claims to deliver "48-hour odor and wetness protection" and includes "NutriumMoisture™ and an elegant floral scent for the ultimate care after every shave". (Dove)

It has now been a few weeks since I started using this deodorant and I am officially hooked on it. For starters the deodorant itself has a very silky smooth feeling to it so it glides on with ease. The scent is not too over powering but just perfect enough that when you raise your arms you can smell it if close by (proof of this was recently gathered when I went to pick up my son & he said "wow, what's that pretty smell mom?"). Although it claims to last for 48 hours I have yet to test this out. Not sure about anybody else but I prefer to shower daily and put deodorant on after I get out of the shower. It's nice to know though that if I shower in the morning I can expect it to keep working until the following night in case I stay over somewhere & don't have some deodorant on me. It has been put through many tests including multiple job interviews, a concert, new job jitters, playing & running around with my 7 year old, and work-outs at the gym. It held up remarkably well during each of these times and delivers outstanding odor and wetness protection!

The moisturizing part is spot on & no lie! I know talking about armpits can be weird at times but I can tell there is a difference with mine from using this deodorant. I live in Indiana and we have had one of the worst winters ever. This means dry skin to the max! With the regular Dove deodorant I felt like I was getting some extra moisture with each use but I still used lotion to help with the itchiness that dry skin & shaving your armpits can cause. Not fun! Luckily, though, with this deodorant I no longer have any itchy dry skin in that area! Bravo Dove for that!

To compare Dove's regular brand with the new Advanced Care deodorant I put a few swipes of it on paper. You can see that in the regular Dove deodorant it has left behind dry areas and streaks of small clumps of deodorant, whereas the advance care deodorant is smooth and left barely any streaks of deodorant behind on the paper.

Words & testimony can only go so far so I highly recommend checking out Dove's Advanced Care line of deodorant. It may be a bit more pricey but I think it's worth it! Keep an eye out for coupons because I've seen some $2.00 ones to help with the cost. If you use this deodorant I'd love to hear your thoughts on it so please feel free to leave a comment.
