I’ve often wondered about the clinical protection series, wondered if it really was worth the extra money. I was happy to try out this sample. The clinical protection antiperspirant did keep me a little drier than regular formulas on a busy hot day. This particular type, the clear tone was supposed to help remove dark spots in the underarm area. The product description from Dove’s website is:
Did you know? When underarm skin is irritated by shaving, it can respond by creating dark marks.
The solution — Dove Clinical Protection® Clear Tone™ Skin Renew Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant. With calendula and sunflower seed extracts, its unique formula moisturizes to accelerate the natural skin renewal process while providing prescription-strength wetness protection.
Show off beautiful underarms with visibly reduced underarm dark marks with regular use over time.
Personally, I have never experienced dark areas in my underarm but I did notice that this product moisturized well and left my underarms very soft. The fragrance was not something I would have picked myself and leaned toward the floral side. It was too strong for my taste and throughout the day I felt like all I could smell was the anti-perspirant. Overall I was happy with the way it kept me dry, the fragrance (although strong) lasted all day and I was left with soft underarms.
Dove also sent the regular formula of Dove Clear tone skin renew anti-perspirant/deodorant for me to try. This product had the same strong floral smell that was too overpowering but seemed to work well as an everyday anti-perspirant/deodorant. I’m not sure it would stand up to a really hot day or provide enough protection for a busy, active day but worked well when I used it. It has the same moisturizing components with calendula and sunflower seed extracts as the clinical protection and I was impressed with the overall feel of my underarm area after use.
I have actually purchased the Dove Clinical myself and it has been a bit hit with me. I wouldn't say I am a super active gal (working on that too readers!) but I do A LOT of running around after the kiddos and all over town. This deodorant kept me very dry and, while the scent was noticeable to me (but not in a bad way) I am not sure anyone else could really notice it. I also like that the price tag was much lower than some of the competition for clinical strength!! Find out more about Dove products and where to purchase by visiting www.dove.com.
