RRP: £8.49

--What does the promo say?--
"Perspirex Original Antiperspirant Roll-On is clinically proven to effectively control excessive sweat and odour. Perspirex Original provides long lasting protection from wetness and odour. Its unique active skincare system helps to reduce underarm irritation. Perspirex's unique patented formula is clinically proven to give strong and lasting protection against excessive sweat and odour. One application provides protection for 3-5 days. Its unique active skincare system helps reduce skin irritation. Perspirex Original is unfragranced and suitable for normal skin."

This minute roll-on means it's perfect for travel as it can easily slip into any bag or pocket. The screw-top lid is secure and the roll-on mechanism itself works efficiently. The minimalistic colour scheme is also quite unisex and focused on the product's purpose.

Apply to clean, dry skin before going to bed and ensure that the product has dried before you put on your nightclothes. In the morning, rinse off. You do not need to reapply the product after doing this. This procedure needs only be followed 2-3 times a week. So simple - but different to your usual deodorant, I expect (unless you have used a direct competitor such as Driclor - then the process will be familiar to you).

The antiperspirant rolls on and dries colourlessly. No white marks are left on clothing.

Quite clinical; some would say even a little harsh. Put it this way: if you are looking for the floral or citrusy scents of standard deodorants, you won't find them here. However, this suits me fine, as curbing excess sweating is a greater priority for me than scent.

--Texture and consistency--
Rolls on and dries smoothly. No flaky white bits to contend with once it dries!

--Effects on the skin--
This definitely does what it says on the pack - it will curb excess sweating, no questions asked. However, just make sure you follow the directions in terms of not applying it too often, as skin can become overly dry and flaky otherwise. I usually alternate with a cream deodorant, such as Aurelia Probiotic, to keep the skin calm and smooth.

--Value for money--
It's ostensibly expensive, but remember you are only applying it every 2-3 days, so one lasts a very long time. I was sent mine for free by Perspirex's PR, but would definitely repurchase.
