Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant Review-
I always go for Dove when it comes to maintaining the even tone of my underarm skin along with keeping me fresh the entire day but I recently came across this variant from Nivea which claims to do the same so thought of giving it a try for a change 🙂 Read on to know if I will move back to my beloved Dove!
What Nivea Says-
NIVEA Whitening Sensitive Deodorant is India’s First Sensitive Deodorant. It is specifically designed to care for sensitive underarms and gives visibly even-toned underarms without irritation. Its Ultra-Light formula contains 0 percent Alcohol which doesn’t irritate your skin.
- Shake well before use
- Hold the can at a distance of 15cm from the underarm before spraying
- Spray directly on underarm skin
- Do not spray on clothes
- Do not spray on broken or irritated skin
- Allow product to dry completely
Price: 199/- INR for 150 ml
My take on the Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant-
This Nivea deodorant comes in their white sturdy can packaging with aqua blue accents & a tight white cap. Extremely easy to use & carry around 🙂
The spray mechanism is okay but not as good as the Dove one & sprays quite a strong burst when I spray it on my underarms after a shower & stings for about 5 seconds after which it settles down & does not irritate further. But being alcohol free, it is not supposed to sting is it? :-/ Also, it does leave a slight white powdery cast on my skin & I have to wait for a couple of minutes to put on my clothes.
As an anti-perspirant it acts very well during the warmer months & does keep sweat at bay to a great extent but I do use this all year round more as a deodorant & it is great in that aspect as well ^_^ It keeps me fresh & smelling great for the entire day 🙂
The fragrance is clean, fresh & very breezy but umm..I do like my Dove one more 😛
As for the whitening claim, I am not too sure about how well it works because I have been using it for 2-3 weeks now & haven’t noticed my underarms’ skin tone change in any way- neither for better nor for worse so….
Pros of the Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant:
1> Very convenient & travel friendly can packaging 🙂
2> Keeps sweat at bay during the warmer months.
3> Keeps me smelling & feeling fresh for the whole day.
4> Does not dry out or aggravate my sensitive skin.
5> Lovely, clean, fresh scent which lingers 🙂
Cons of the Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant:
In spite of its gentle, no alcohol tag, it stings my skin for a few seconds as soon as I spray it on 😐
It leaves behind a faint powdery cast immediately after application.
Did not notice any lightening of underarm skin.
My Rating: 3.9/5!
Do I recommend the Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant?
Nivea Whitening Sensitive 48 Hours Gentle Care Deodorant is a nice, clean smelling deodorant for keeping sweat & stinky B.O at bay all year round but I will revert to my beloved Dove Original because I prefer that scent more & also, the Dove one does not sting my skin at all!
