Body Shop Aloe Roll-On Deodorant

Deodorant, one of the lesser talked about beauty items that resides in gym bags, on dressers and handbags of almost everyone in the UK. Not the most exciting of beauty items but an essential for many.

I shower daily but do like having an extra defence. I have a confession to make. I don’t actually like deodorants. The aerosols irritate my skin, especially after underarm grooming. I haven’t used a roll-on in years, not since the gloopy or waxy versions of the 90’s. So I bought this on impulse. To see if the gentler ingredients and subtle scent could change my mind about roll-ons.

The verdict

Delicate scent of aloe vera, with no added chemical scent. This reduces the risk of irritation for sensitive skin. I certainly didn’t get any redness, itchiness or other irritation caused by aerosols.

The Body Shop Aloe Roll-on kept me dry during the working day and to be honest, that’s all I needed it to do. No negative points just yet, but I haven’t given it the acid test, a summers day. I’ll return to this next Summer.

Overall, I really like this and I’ll definitely repurchase as it is gentle yet gets the job done.
