Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant Review-
As you all know, I am a huge fan of Dove deodorants & have used almost all their variants so it’s no surprise that I pounced on one of their new summer variants as soon as I spied it sitting pretty on the shelf at my local Boots ^_^ It’s in the variant apple & white tea which sounds perfect for the hot weather.

My take on the Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant-
This Dove deodorant comes in their typical sturdy can packaging with red & white accents & a tight white cap(red in some stores I have no idea why!) to signify the particular variant. Very convenient, easy to use & carry around 🙂
The spray mechanism is extremely controlled & sprays a light, even mist when I spray it on my underarms after a shower. It never leaves any white powdery cast on my skin/dark colored clothes which is one of the reasons I always stick to Dove!
The fragrance I am so sorry to say is the main reason I have had to rate it so low 🙁 I have never come across a more disappointing scent from Dove 😐 I love almost all of their scents including the original blue one which I have repurchased countless number of times but I am sorry I just couldn’t tolerate this one :-/ It smells so artificially sweet & overpowering, neither like white tea & certainly not juicy like an apple. And as the day progresses, it gets worse. I feel sick after an hour of wearing it & am now reduced to using this deodorant on my daughter’s pile of dirty laundry after she throws up :-/
It also does not irritate or darken my sensitive underarm skin 🙂
Pros of the Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant:
1> Convenient, sleek packaging with even, fine spray mechanism.
2> Does not leave white marks on clothes.
3> Does not irritate my sensitive underarm skin.
Cons of the Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant:
The SCENT 🙁 It is horribly artificial & gets worse with wear.
My Rating: 2/5!
Do I recommend the Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant?
Dove Go Fresh Apple and White Tea Anti-perspirant Deodorant is the only disappointment I have had in the entire range and for the sole reason that I hate the artificial scent they have come up with. I would always repurchase & recommend the other variants but would never wish this scent on my worst enemy :-/
