Once A Week Deodorant 3 Disposable Wipes MYR 8.90
Searching for a good, free from 'nasties' deodorant is like looking for a needle in a haystack in Malaysia. I have tried 2 natural deodorants ever since switching to natural or organic ones... and the results were not positive on me. Tried my own DIY eucalyptus water and it didn't work well either. I've even tried taking supplements, in hopes to rid of the odour but it didn't have any effect on me at all. It left me wondering " Do I have to live smelling like this for the rest of my life?"
Not long ago, a nice reader, Xin, introduced me to this Once A Week Deodorant. It was very effective on her and I've decided to try this one since I am in need of a deodorant alternative real bad. Honestly, I was rather sceptical even before buying this because most deodorants don't work on me at all, even those commercial aluminuim ones like Rexona or Addidas.
So, will this work? Crossing my fingers now....
Once a week neutralizes ALL body odours with immediate effect and leaves lasting odourless condition for days. It is water-based, fragrance-free, stain-free, colourless, zero-stickiness, zero-skin irritation and 100% alcohol-free.
Water, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Glycerol, Pottasium Sulfite, Lactobacilli Extract.
This is my first time ever to use wipes as deodorant and I found it pretty interesting. As per the directions stated in the packaging, targeted area must be cool and dry. It also wrote "BEST used after sundown", so I presume it means night. Inside the packaging, it also shows the effective way of using the wipes.
I did as shown above but used the reverse side of the wipes for my other pit area. Though it says the wipe is fragrance-free, my sensitive nose detect some sourish 'yoghurt-y' smell from the wipes and my head tells me that it must be the lactic acid and the lactobacilli extract.
Timeline and experience...
Saturday ( night )- Use wipes as per instructed.
Sunday - When I woke up the next morning and smell my pits, was glad I detected zero smell. I went about doing groceries shopping, cooking and some light washing and lo and behold, no smell and surprisingly, no sweat!
Monday and Tuesday - Woke up with minimal smell and go about the whole day with minimal sweat.
Wednesday - Woke up with minimal smell but come evening, pits start to smell and sweat.
So basically, this thing last up till maximum 4 days for me. That night itself, I use the 2nd wipes again. However, I felt that it wasn't really effective the 2nd time around. I started to have heavier smell and sweat on the 3rd day.
However, when I use the 3rd wipes, it began to be as effective as the first time. The only conclusion I can think of is that probably on the second usage, my pits were not cool or dry thoroughly.
I am rather impressed with these wipes, seeing that it really does neutralise my 'pretty strong' body odour for several days. The plus points for these wipes is that they are aluminium-free, stain free and fragrance free. I think these wipes can come in pretty handy as well if I were to travel abroad. At least, I can still save some space in my luggage for more potential shopping.
Though the price may not be exactly wallet-friendly, I actually don't mind using these again because it works rather well on my smelly pits. May I also stress that these wipes will work more effectively if we follow the instructions well.
