A bit disappointed
So I am a Dove lover through and through. I buy everything Dove for my entire family: my husband, son (5), and baby (1). I've always used the regular Dove stick deodorant, typically the cucumber scent or Shea scent. Lately, I've been under a heavy load of stress, and the deodorant wasn't working against my stress sweat. To remedy this, I bought the clinical strength. Well....as the title reads...I am a bit sad to report that it isn't helping. I use it as directed, and yet I still start to smell odor around the afternoon. I am not and was not upset that the regular didn't work. After all, it has worked for years now; plus, it's not meant to handle stress sweat. I did, however, expect the much more costly clinical strength to work. Outside of not lasting, it is a good product. It goes on clean and has a nice scent. It also dries quickly. I have found that my husband's Dove deodorant helps with the stress sweat and odor; nonetheless, I'd prefer a women's deodorant to avoid smelling like a guy all day long. Perhaps the clinical strength isn't meant for the purpose of which I assumed. But one would think "clinical" could handle any and all sweat/smells. Sadly, I think this is the first Dove product in years and years that has not met the standards that I hold Dove products to. I won't be buying it anymore; on another note, I will still be buying everything else Dove!
