When I was a teenager and played much more sports back then, I perspire easily and my body scent was obviously not pleasant. Like many normal humans out there, I resort to using deodorant; the roll-on type. It did help to lessen the after-sports odour but after a few tries, I felt that it was unhygienic to use roll-on deodorant; after each usage, gems or dirt could roll into the container and roll back on your skin the next time you use (yuck). I completely cut off the usage of roll-on deodorant after my peers add on to my horror by telling me how it could cause cancer or skin diseases etc.

Till today, I finally found my confidence in deodorant again!

Nivea Anti-Perspirant Whitening Happy Shave is an anti-perspirant that goes beyond the essential to give users fairer, smoother, and healthier underarms. This product contains provitamin B5 and Vitamin C which helps to:

  1. Whiten and smooth skin 
  2. Repair damaged cells 
  3. Reduce skin irritation from shaving 
  4. Support skin regeneration 
  5. Provide 48-hours protection again body odour and sweat

Even though I am currently attending IPL sessions, I’m still required to do self shaving between sessions. It is a known fact that shaving will cause small cuts on the skin, which in return will become rough and likely to get inflammation and pigmentation – causing the skin to darken.

Fortunately, this deodorant comes in a spray format which means there’s no direct contact with the skin (yay!). Besides providing 48-hour of protection against body odour, the product also acts as a skincare for underarm – Provitamin B5 helps to promote wound healing (from shaving cuts), supports the formation of new cells and moisturize the skin. / Vitamin C protects the skin against radical damage, promote collagen formation and repair hair from shaving and plucking. Basically, it’s a bottle of happiness for your underarm.

Verdict – I love the product for its spray format so there isn’t much direct contact between the container and the skin. The product gives off a nice simple floral scent that isn’t over powering, and will not cover/mixed up with my own perfume scent. The solution is cooling to the skin and dries up quickly upon spraying, which does not make the skin feel uncomfortable. After 8 hours, my underarms still feel fresh and perspiration is reduced. The only inferiority of this product is the times of usage it is available for; product tends to finish faster through spraying.
