Trial Experience
I was excited to receive this product. I use Dove anti-perspirants almost exclusively because I find that they are gentle on my skin. Unfortunately I was disappointed in this product. It was just as gentle on my skin as the other Dove products I have used but I had to stop using it. I usually use scented anti-perspirants so I was quite dismayed when the perfume in this one was so overpowering that I couldn't use it after the first day. It irritated my allergies and as someone who is sensitive to others who have even stronger reactions to scents I couldn't continue exposing the public to the perfume if it was already bothering me.

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
Unfortunately due to the perfumes I wasn't able to use it for the full two weeks.

Scent Used
I tried both scents and they were both too perfumed for my liking.

 
 

Trial Experience
I received the product and was very excited to try it, upon opening the package I read on one of the products that it smelled of almonds. I am allergic to nuts, so I refrained from using that one :( So the other one I tried. I found the smell of the product so strong that I only used it for 1 day, it was all I could smell, and then after showering and trying to wash it off, I got out of the shower and could still smell it.

Scent Used
skin renew

 
 

Trial Experience
Loved this product. After 1 week I noticed a difference in the amount of deorderant residue that was coming off onto my clothing. My underarms were also less dry and irritated.

Scent Used

Trial Experience
i recieved the product and began using it right away. i really didn't care for the smell of either one but preferred the sheer tone. firstly the scent was so over powering that it bothered me all day i had to take a shower, and i could still smell it. i waited about two days and tried again, it was better after that, but still didn't care for the smell. we had some warm weather here and had a chance to put it to the test doing some gardening. overall it worked very well for odor protection but didn't work very well keeping me dry, but i have yet to find a deodorant that keeps me dry under intense physical activity. if you are not sensitive to strong scents, i would recomend it. it did what it said it would do for the discolouration but they need to work on the scents.

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
i did notice a slight difference in my underarm discolouration. i also noticed they were much smoother and my underarm skin was softer.

Scent Used
i used the sheer tone scent, i really didn't care for either scent as they were way too strong. i use scented deodorant normally but i found this one really bothered me.

 
 

Trial Experience
I absolutely LOVED both of the scents that were sent to me! I also found the product went on very cleanly and clear -didn't have to worry about those nasty deodorant stains on my clothes. I also loved that it did it's job in keeping me dry for 24 hours- no need to reapply! It made me feel very confident and was put to the test the day it was 24 degrees here in March.. I started the day wearing a big bulky sweater and had no opportunity to change as I was at work.. thankfully I was able to stay dry! YAY!!

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
I have to say... because I was paying close attention and watching for a change, I believe I did notice a slight change in the discolouration under my arms, but I can't say for certain if I would have noticed, had I not been watching closely... there was still quite a bit of discolouration. I'm hoping with continued use beyond the 2 week period I will be able to notice more of a colour change.

Scent Used
I used the skin renew product. Loved the scent.. not over-powering, just right for my liking.

 
 

Trial Experience
I received the sample and picked the skin renew scent. It has a light clean smell which was very appealing. Ths product does carry aluminum in it, as lately I have been seeking non aluminum formulas instead. It would be better if it was more organic and did not have aluminum listed in the ingredients. It seemed to work well but like all antiperspirants that I use, over time it failed to block smells and sweat. I may be an anomaly as most antiperspirants don't work for me.

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
Underarms are soft not dry, but would have minor flakes, maybe from me putting on a lot just to make sure it works.

Scent Used
I picked renew as the scent to try as it smelled like a clean shower.

 
 

Trial Experience
I've used the product for about 2 weeks now and I'm fairly satisfied with it. The protection level is good for typical daily activity (I found I needed to reapply before heading to my usual 1.5 hour workout). I can tell it has more moisturizing ingredients than my usual product because it glides on so much easier! I would say the only "needs improvement" mark would be in the scent category - a little more selection would be great. But the formula itself works well!

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
I would say there is a slight improvement although I am most impressed with the overall condition of my skin. I was skeptical that adding moisture to my underarms would be a good thing, but it made big difference. I love the smoother skin, I'm looking great for my sleeveless spring tops now!

Scent Used
I used both the Skin Renew and Silk Touch scents. I prefer the Skin Renew as it has a bit more of a floral scent, although the Silk Touch has a citrusy scent if you prefer that fragrance. Scent is completely personal! I hope they come out with a few more scents, my favorites are usually warmer, maybe with a hint of vanilla or cocoa butter?

 
 

Trial Experience
I really liked the scent of the anti-antiperspirant and I found the protection lasted all day long. My only complaint is that I wear a lot of black and white clothing and I was a bit scared to test and see if it would stain my clothes or not. So every other day or so I had to use my regular black and white protection anti-antiperspirant. I would buy that product again.

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
I did notice that my underarms were more hydrated, although I do not suffer from any serious discoloration to begin with. So I would have to say that I noticed a minimal change. I would suggest this product for people with more noticeable discoloration.

Scent Used
sheer touch

 
 

Trial Experience
I used Dove ClearTone Skin Renew Anti-Perspirant religiously everyday and have to say I'm very impressed with this product! I was skeptical because I am an highly active individual who sweats a lot during my workouts and I wasn't sure this anti-perspirant would hold up to the demands but it did and smells great too ;) I also learned that a little goes a long way so you don't need to use very much and if you do it doesn't go on clear so you learn this very fast!! Overall, I'd highly recommend this product to others that want their underarm discolouration to be invisible, to smell great, and who want an anti-perspirant to control their sweat under intense workouts and everyday life!

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
Yes, after 2 weeks I noticed that my underarm discolouration began to fade and now I can no longer see my discolouration I'd develop due to shaving this sensitive underarm area. So, definately this product helped with my underarm discolouration-as it's non existent now.

Scent Used
I used the Skin Renew Scent which smelled amazing!! It was such a pleasant, uplifting scent unlike any anti-perspirants scents I've used in the past. I enjoyed putting it on everyday as the scent was so rejuvenating.

 
 

Trial Experience
The antiperspirant glided on smoothly. The smell was nice. It didn't bead up under my under arms like other brands of antiperspirant. It also washed off nicely in the shower. It also worked great when I was sweating a lot when I went to the gym. It didn't leave any white marks on my clothing either.

After using the product for two weeks, did you notice a difference in your underarm discolouration caused by shaving?
My underarms don't discoulour that much but I found that they didn't look as dry as they normally do. I found that it was easy to shave my underarms and my skin wasn't irritated at all when I used the antiperspirant.

Scent Used
Calendula and Sunflower Seed. I didn't mind the scent of the antiperspirant. I know it sounds odd but it sort of reminded me of the smell of hair products. For a couple days I couldn't figure out why I could smell a faint hair product smell and then it hit me that it was the antiperspirant. I personally like the smell of hair products so it was fine with me.
