Do Your Fellow New Yorker’s a Favor


Take Care Where It Counts

One thing a woman needs is reliability from her deodorant. We are too busy and driven to have to worry about not having perspiration protection, or deodorant stains on our business suits (even if that is work-at-home sweatpants). Picking the perfect deodorant is an important part of the average woman’s beauty routine, and can’t be ignored. 

My major issue is worrying about my deodorant crumbling up when I’m trying to use it or worse–staining my clothes (dryer sheets do the trick!) when I’m going somewhere important or professional. Or holding onto the subway rail and shoving those balls in another New Yorkers face – especially if they aren’t working properly. Ugh. We’ve all been there.

I never took time to educate myself on my deodorant products, I’d just pick the one with the best sounding scent and go with it. Who has the time? But this is a crucial beauty routine if you care about your underarms. There are four types of deodorants, Dry Sprays (which I’ve recently given a try), Cares which specifically focus on moisturizing and recovering delicate skin, Motion Activated which contain MotionsenseĀ® technology and work for hours to protect against sweating for 48 hours, and Clinical Protection which brings wetness protection with clinical strength to protect users. Everyone’s bodies work differently and therefore need different levels of protection against sweat and smelly odors, especially with different genetics and levels of physical activity. Underarm skin is extremely sensitive, which is a factor people must keep in mind when choosing antiperspirants.

 Good For Your Wallet + Good For Your Skin

I headed over to Walgreens to check out their #DoDeoBetter options to find the one that was best for my daily routine and skin type. My deodorant of choice helped that routine go a little smoother because it’s a spray on–no rolling necessary. I’ve found this works well when I have a long day at work or am trying to squeeze a jog in and be #FitFluential. Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant in Cool Essentials is my favorite scent, with hints of green tea and cucumber. It’s clean and refreshing with no white stains! It has 0% alcohol and contains moisturizers to soothe underarms after shaving. The best part is that right now at Walgreens, you can buy one and get a second bottle for 50% off.

Walgreens has tons of smell-good and feel-good options for deodorants, along with great deals. In addition to buy one get one 50% off, but during the week of 9/25-10/1, when you buy two deodorant products, you get 1,000 points added to your Walgreens Balance Rewards card.
