New Dove Advanced Care is the only Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant formulated with NutriumMoistureTM to provide ultimate underarm care.

Now that summer and the hot weather is fast approaching are you ready for it?  Besides trying to get into tip top shape for bathing suit season, or to try and fit into last year's summer wardrobe, don't forget about having Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant on hand, as you don't want to find yourself sniffing and wondering if you put anything on, especially on those hot hot days. :-)

Maybe I was a late bloomer sort of speak, but I didn't have to worry about using Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant until I was in college.  I remember my mom said that once you start using it, you will have to use it forever.  Well, my brothers had to use Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant way before they wanted to as they were stinky, especially when it came to sports or just running around outside during their puberty years.  But, for me, I found that just using baby powder was enough -- that was until stress of college, being in a new environment and away from home, and other college situations, made me sweat under pressure.  Not wanting to stand out from the crowd, or be known as the girl with the bad BO, I made a point to start using Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant.  But, I found that with my sensitive skin, i couldn't use the ones with fragrances, as i would break out.  And, the ones that claimed they were for sensitive skin never really provided the coverage that I needed.

It wasn't until my senior year that one of my college roommates recommended Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant.  I never thought to look for Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, as to me, they were known more for their body washes and soaps.  But, when I made the trek down the Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant  aisle at the local pharmacy, I was surprised to find the different Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant available.  And, from that point forward, I made the switch to Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, and haven't looked back.

And, ever so often when I am looking to stock up on Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, I will browse the available products from Dove, looking for new product additions.  But, before I could look for new Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant in stores, I was sent two scented anti-perspirant/deodorants from the new Dove Advanced Care deodorants to try out, in ADVANCED CARE WITH NUTRIUMMOISTURE™ NOURISHED BEAUTY ANTI-PERSPIRANT DEODORANTand ADVANCED CARE WITH NUTRIUMMOISTURE™ GO FRESH REVIVE ANTI-PERSPIRANT DEODORANT.

Leave it to the crazy New England weather to throw us a curve ball in regards to the weather.  For a few days, all we had was rain.  Then, the cold weather creeped back in, only to have the hot weather knock on our doors and stay around the past few days, with 80+ degree weather.  While I will not complain with the warmer weather, I only wished that once it came, it would stay around.  See, tomorrow and the rest of this week, we will be back down in the lower 60's, with chances of scattered showers each day.  Gotta love New England weather.

But, while the mini heat wave was here, I had the opportunity to really put the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant/Deodorant samples I was sent to the test.  And, guess what...no surprise...they passed with flying colors. Not only did I stay dry and didn't have to worry about body odor from sweating, I found my underarms to be softer and smoother...a far cry from a few weeks ago when I was still trying to lather up daily to add much needed moisture to my skin from the harsh cold winter we are coming off on. I couldn't believe that just after three days of using the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant/Deodorant, my underarms more moisturized.  I didn't have to worry about covering up or wearing long sleeve shirts to hide the dry, chapped, and sometimes flaking underarm area due to the rough winter.  This was a great help seeing that it was in the 80's outside and people were wearing their summer attire, trying to stay cool, yet stylish. :-)

Out of the two scents I was sent to review from Dove, I have to say that my favorite was ADVANCED CARE WITH NUTRIUMMOISTURE™ GO FRESH REVIVE ANTI-PERSPIRANT DEODORANT, as I loved the combination of . pomegranate and lemon verbena Like I have shared in past reviews, due to my sensitive skin, I usually shy away from products that have scents or fragrances, but after using Dove deodorants for years, I haven't had an issue with skin irritation with their scented Antiperspirant/Deodorants.

In addition to Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant/Deodorant offering 48-hours of wetness and odor protection, along with smoother, softer underarms, I also don't have to worry about sweat stains or stains left from Antiperspirant/Deodorant residue, as this product goes on clear and doesn't leave behind white streaks of product residue, like other antiperspirant/deodorants on the market.

So, this summer when I find myself slipping into my swimsuit or putting on a tank top and shorts or a new summer dress, I will first reach for my Dove Advanced Care deodorant, and know I will be covered for up to 48-hours of odor and wetness protection, while also helping to smooth and soften my underarms (results seen in just 3 days of first using). No more worrying when the crazy New England weather changes, leaving me to wonder if my deodorant has me covered for scorcher, as I know Dove will be there offered up to 48-hours of wetness and odor protection.  What more can you ask from a trusted brand like, Dove?

And, I found this interesting and thought I would share with you regarding armpit care...

At-Home PitiCure™ 

"Women often neglect caring for their armpits, but underarm skin requires the same care given to the rest of their bodies. A recent published study shows that 36% of what you remove when shaving is actually skin – only 64% is hair.* As a result of this shaving irritation, armpit skin loses 50% more moisture, which can lead to dryness and sensitivity.** This is why it is important to provide your skin with the moisturization it needs using the simple, three-step PitiCure™ treatment. 

Exfoliate, Rinse and Care, three simple steps that will leave your armpits feeling softer and smoother. The Dove® At-Home PitiCure™ is a treatment that cleanses and helps care for armpit skin over time with the application of Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™. 

Step 1: Exfoliate 
Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or wipes to cleanse underarms and draw out impurities 
 Impurities in the underarm area can cause unwanted irritation (e.g., 
folliculitis/ingrown hair); exfoliation and cleansing can help to relieve this 

Step 2: Rinse 
Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel 

Step 3: Care 
Apply Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™ 
 Formulated with NutriumMoisture™ to care for underarm skin 
 Provides softer, smoother underarm skin in just 3 days 
 Offers 48-hour odor and wetness protection"
