Mitchum Roll-On Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

RRP: £2.49-£2.79, depending on scent and whether it's a roll-on or a spray

Dark green packaging with the name of the product in white writing. Quite unisex packaging - they do make different products for women and men, but the packaging is quite similar for both.

--What does the promo say?--
"So Effective You Could Even Skip A Day™.
Clinically proven to provide 48-hour protection. Quick-drying, Non-stinging, even after shaving."

Unscrew the lid and roll the ball of the deodorant onto your armpits after washing. Leave to dry for a few minutes before dressing.

Depends on the one you buy, but I find that all of the Mitchum range has a nice fresh scent that's neither inoffensive nor overpowering.

--Does it leave white marks?--
Only if you don't leave it to dry properly before dressing.

--Does it sting?--
No, not even after shaving (unless you cut yourself, of course).

--Does it work?--
It's without a doubt the most effective off-the-shelf deodorant I've ever tried, hence why I'm reviewing it here, even though it's not really a beauty product per se. I suffer from hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) so finding an effective deodorant was always slightly problematic, but I find that even one application per day stops you from smelling a bit nasty, and you're not having to reapply it throughout the day like with some deodorants.

--Value for money--
Truly excellent. One of these lasts quite a while and at less than £3, it's a steal. Perfect for hot sunny days (and any other day!).
