Summer Beauty Review: My Underarms Have Dove Love.

I have a confession to make. I'm not a beauty junkie meaning I'm not excited by all things beauty. I don't rush out to the stores to buy the latest and greatest in shampoos, body waxes, deoderants, or teeth whitening products. The term "beauty junkie" to me implies one loves all products having anything to do with improving your personal appearance. It's not to say that I don't have these items hoarded away somewhere in my bathroom. I need these products to make me smell good and to keep my hair from becoming a huge frizz ball. Some products just don't excite me as much as makeup which explains why you'll never see a feature on tooth whitening on Makeup Junkie (although I believe a smile is your best beauty accessory). 

With that said, when I do find a product that really works then I must blog about it! Hmm, come to think about it, I believe this is my first review on a deoderant! Hooray! 

I bought Dove's Cleartone Sheer Touch Antiperspirant almost 2 weeks ago before my family trip to BC. Ever since I had my first son 6 years ago, my underarms have never been the same. If you've had a baby and have breastfed, then you know what I'm talking about. I'll just tell it like it is; I have what I like to call "milk pouches". To make things even better, they are 2 shades darker than the rest of my skin! It looks like I have a 5 o'clock shadow goin' on! 

I had heard some reviews from other bloggers that Cleartone works so I decided to put it to the test. I'm happy to say it really does! I should have taken before and after pictures (but I'm sure you don't want to see my arm pits!), but I didn't think it would really work. Cleartone contains Canlendula and Sunflower seed extracts that moisturize the underarms to reduce discolouration. Who knew that dryness was the cause of discolouration?? Plus, it does a pretty good job of keeping my sweat in check, but I'm not that sweaty to begin with. 

Now, when I wear a sleeveless shirt and do makeup I'm not as embarrassed (still got the milk pouches - boo). This is one deoderant I will be purchasing again! It's summertime ladies - add this to your must-have list!

Have you tried Dove Cleartone? What were your results?

Product was bought by me and I'm so glad I did.
