Beauty | Dove Dry Spray Anti-Perspirant Review

Dove Dry Spray 5


I’ve been a huge fan of Dove deodorant ever since it came out on the market. I love the branding, the packaging and most of all, the product works. My go-to is Dove Advanced Care in the elegant scent, Beauty Finish – so, you can imagine my excitement when I heard that Dove launched a dry spray version recently.

The Dove Dry Spray anti-perspirant isn’t like the aerosol deodorants we’re used to. Firstly, the Dove Dry Spray goes on like it says: dry. No shockingly cold, liquid nitrogen-like blast when you spray it onto your sensitive underarms. It’s soft like a warm breeze and in an instant, it’s dry. It also smells heavenly when you spray it on and I kind of liked that the smell lingered a bit in the bathroom after I applied it.

Another cool aspect that perhaps differs from our experience of stick deodorants is the residue. I usually use an old pantyhose to rub off any white powder that makes its way onto my clothes after putting on deodorant. I mean, it works (old wives tale come true), but it is annoying. The Dove Dry Spray version, however, left no residue at all. My underarm was clean as a baby’s bottom (or a baby’s underarm, no less). It was soft and smooth, thanks to Dove’s 1/4 moisturizer technology.

How to use it? Shake the canister well before each use. Brace your underarm, holding the can about 15 cm away and spray for about 2 seconds. Shake, spray, dry – as they say. It really is that simple.

12 hours later, I asked my boyfriend to venture a sniff. It was as fresh as when I had first applied the dry spray – lucky for him!

With four delicious scents, you can switch up your beauty routine without ever having to worry about sweat stains and body odours:

Beauty Finish: Sophisticated like a day at the spa with notes of water lily, freesia and jasmine.

Cool Essentials: Takes me back to summer in Amalfi; sweet cucumber and green tea feels and smells like healing in a bottle.

Revive: On a sweeter note, hints of pomegranate with lemon verbena leave a fresh scent that lasts.

Original: A powdery floral fragrance as simple as a rose, a classic.

    I love the blue Dove antiperspirant spray. My husband loves the smell it leaves on me and says there’s no need for perfume or anything else, just freshness! Love you Dove!

      Agreed!!! I love Beauty Finish (the light pink one) and the green. The green reminds me of the beach…

    I really need a scent free kind as I have a coworker that is severely allergic to scents. It’s hard to find scent free items these days.
