My Switch to Dove Deo

Hello Sunshine! I always get questions about my armpits. No, I wouldn’t consider them perfect, but they’re not so bad! LOL When asked what I do, and I say I just shave, I get pretty surprised reactions. For the longest time, people fear shaving because it can harm and eventually darken the skin. But personally, I prefer shaving than plucking or waxing because I just can’t be bothered! Plus, I don’t like the chickened skin result people who pull hair end up having.

But did you know that shaving remains to be the most common method of underarm hair removal for 70% of Filipinas? No surprise there. Shaving is the quickest and most convenient way to get rid of unwanted hair, after all. It’s even emergency friendly. If you forget to tend your armpit hair, you can easily just whip out a razor and you’re good to go!

But did you also know that when you shave, 1/3 of what you remove is actually skin, which leads to underarm darkening? Along with your hair, shaving takes away the top-most layer of your skin, leaving it irritated. And with continued shaving, skin is unable to heal itself and becomes bumpy, dry and dark.

Good thing some products can leave you shaving without the guilt. One product in mind is the Dove deodorant which has its unique ¼ moisturizing cream to care for your skin post-shaving. This unique formulation from Dove soothes underarm skin from irritation while also helping repair damage caused by shaving, making your underarms lighter and smoother.

I’ve recently switched to Dove deodorants and noticed that when I don’t use Dove (like not use anything for my underarms), it does feel dryer than usual. The Dove deos are so moisturizing, I feel its absence! ☺️

To be honest, I've long been a Nivea deodorant user... and sure I would try a new product sometimes, but I used to always go back to Nivea--which has been my armpit go-to brand since high school. But you know what, no kidding, I didn't notice that I actually stuck it with Dove since I decided to just roadtest it. I started with a tiny travel-sized Dove deo... then that ran out, I opened another travel-sized one. Then that also ran out... now I'm using a full-sized Dove deo! It's such a big surprise for me, because like I said, I've always been a stick-to-one brand when it comes to my armpits. But yeah, Dove deo's that good!

I don’t know about you, but if I can have smooth and moisturized armpits even while keeping at it with my shaving routine, I’m definitely going hands up for that! 🙌🙌🙌 I already trust Dove for my hair and body… it’s about time I trust Dove for my precious underarms!

Sure, I don't have perfect underarms but heck, I'm glad I found the perfect deo to match my lifestyle--while also helping me achieve that perfect underams, finally. Stay tuned! Someday my armpits would be poster-ready too! haha 🙌
