If you are prepping your skin for your prettiest spring dresses and tank tops, then you’ll know that having smooth underarm skin — without the dreaded dry and dark underarm marks – is your highest priority.
But, how do we get dry underarm skin and dark marks?
If you rule out hyper-pigmentation and an allergic reaction to your daily deodorant, frequent shaving and not moisturizing the skin under your arms are usually the darkened-skin culprits.
Because spring has sprung in Atlanta and I am ready to wear my sleeveless and strapless tops, I was excited to give the Dove ClearTone anti-perspirant a whirl and pamper my tender and darkened pits. Here’s what I discovered:
TOUCH & SMELL: The product glides on smoothly and smells divine. The scent is mild and not overpowering. In fact, it will blend with your fruity scented body lotions and perfumes easily. Because I am allergic to many anti-perspirants and deodorants in the marketplace, I was pleased that I could wear the product all day and all night without any allergic flare-ups!
INGREDIENTS & BENEFITS: Dove ClearTone has Sunflower and Calendula seed extracts to soothe parched skin. Because daily shaving may cause dark marks and dry skin, the product has moisturizing properties to help even the skin tone and reduce dark marks. I only tried the product for a week, and my skin did feel softer than before. I’ll have to swipe it on for at least another week or two to test the dark-mark-removing claims. Here’s the product info from Dove:
- 24-hour wetness and odor protection
- Pamper’s delicate underarm skin with Dove® ¼ moisturizers™
- Alleviate the formation of white marks on clothing
Dove® Clear Tone is available on shelves this month in the following formulas:
- Skin Renew Invisible Solid – Light floral notes of violet, lilac and rose with vanilla musk
- Sheer Touch Invisible Solid – Light citrus notes with hints of almond and coconut milk
- Clinical Protection Renew – Offers prescription strength wetness protection with the maximum level of active ingredients (20%) available without a prescription.
ODOR PROTECTION: The 24 hour odor protection claim is true. I need a strong anti-perspirant that will fight the funk without irritating my skin. With a few quick swipes under my arms, this deodorant helped me to feel confident all day and all night. So when the heat wave hits the south this summer, I’ll grab the Dove ClearTone to keep me cool and odor-free.
The goal of this product is to reduce the dark marks caused by shaving underneath the arms. If you have this problem — and a lot of women do– swipe on this inexpensive anti-perspirant to moisturize your underarm skin and keep you fresh during a hot summer wedding or an evening walk along the beach with the one you love.
