Sparkle not Sweat: Dove Dryspray Deodorant Review

Here in New Jersey, once the month of May ends we all commence with three solid months of sweating.  I know it's natural to sweat and that it's the body's cooling system.  That doesn't mean I have to like it. Well, I hate it.  So, I've spent the better part of my adult life on the quest for the perfect deodorant.  I don't think I am asking too much. I need it to satisfy three criteria: 1. Prevent sweating (duh!); 2. Smell nice (obviously!); and 3. Not leave marks on my clothes.  Dove Dryspray comes pretty darn close to perfect.

Dove Dry Deodorant Review-2

I received some Dove Dryspray courtesy of Influenster a few weeks ago.  And I have been testing it out ever since.  Ok, I am still using it...so I guess it's not "testing" any more.  I have to admit, I was skeptical at first.  I was so surprised that Dove Dryspray is much more than just a body spray.  It actually prevents sweating and odor.

Dove Dry Deodorant Review-1

One of the reasons I stick with solid deodorants is because I don't like walking around the house with my arms above my head for 5 minutes waiting for a gel or spray deodorant to dry.  However, I also don't like changing clothes three times after I get deodorant smudges on them.  Dove Dryspray solves all of these problems.

Dove Dry Deodorant Review-6

Have you ever tried a spray deodorant?
