Ban Roll-on Antiperspirant Deodorant

Hi there!

Even with summer coming to a close…still need that Antiperspirant and Deodorant! Ban has a Roll-on formula, that attacks both sweating and odors!

I was given two of these roll on Deodorants to try, in Unscented, aimed at sensitive skin, and in Satin Breeze. Retail price of both are $4.99 each at most Drug stores and Mass Retailers.

Now some background information… I weight train/workout 6 days a week. I’m on my feet most of the day. I commute. In other words… I am constantly moving, and being sweaty and stinky are things I DO NOT have time to worry about! My ideal Deodorant is one that I don’t have to apply multiple times per day just to work.

These Deodorants state that they have 24 hour invisible protection, and are non irritating.

For the roll to start working, you have to shake down the contents a little bit, unless you will apply just a dry roll on with no Deodorant…bad! However after you apply, I recommend keeping them upright, as the Deodorant will leak onto the side and appear all gooey. (see below)

It does indeed roll on smooth. The satin breeze smells nice, a bit floral, and fresh. The Unscented is…well unscented. No smell at all. Which I can’t tell if I like or not.

Happy to report there was no irritation on my skin, even when using after shaving. There were NO white marks, which was also a plus. I HATE THAT!!!! That is one of the reasons I will only use gel Deodorants…. no white marks all over my clothing.

But okay…okay… HOW DOES IT WORK!?

Honestly…it’s OK. The antiperspirant side worked pretty well, I didn’t feel like I was sweating in any of my shirts (nobody likes those sweat stains!). However, I personally feel the Deodorant aspect of this product isn’t strong enough. I ended up applying a few times per day, before and after gym, when I got home from work, after a shower, etc., and moreso on those hot and humid days where you are just sweating non-stop.

Overall, not my favorite. I would use it in a pinch, but I wouldn’t buy in the future. I personally need something a little stronger. But if you are content with an average strength Deodorant, then this product is worth a try. For me… 3 stars.

ZERO deodorant

Hi There! 🙂

Got something fun to review today…deodorant! I am constantly going through deodorants…I live an active lifestyle, so I can sweat a lot, and I am constantly applying to make sure I stay fresh.

Of course there is a lot of talk about ingredients that are “bad for us” in deodorants, and while I won’t go into that, for those of you who want to stick to more natural brands, in comes ZERO deodorant. These products are made with shea butter and beeswax, which kills the odor causing bacteria, and is super gentle on skin. They are made without any parabens, aluminum, and baking soda.

I got 2 varieties to try, the Vetiver & Ylang Ylang, and the kids’ Peppermint Candy deodorants. Happy to report that both of them caused zero irritation on my skin. They were great after shaving too, because the gel type deodorants tend to sting/burn slightly when applying after a shower after shaving. Not the case here.

No white marks were left on any items of my clothing, which was also a plus.

They feel a little “sticky” when you apply it, but that feeling quickly dissipates. Your armpit is left slightly “moist” from the deodorant, so I think it would be easy to slide off, so make sure you get dressed and then apply, as you may slide the deodorant off.

You will definitely smell the deodorant throughout the day. I got mild whiffs of Ylang Ylang or peppermint as I worked throughout the day.

I will say, although I did not notice a smell, I definitely felt like I sweat more than I would using another deodorant. So this product lacks in the antiperspirant aspect, at least for me.

However, it did cover “the stink!” I work 12 hour shifts on Tuesdays, and I walked up to a coworker of mine and asked truthfully if she smelled anything on me, and she denied….You know how sometimes you are immune to your own smell! =)

Overall, a good product, especially for those who want a natural route, or something for sensitive skin. You have to like the smell of shea butter, because you will smell it! I will use up these deodorants, but not sure if I will buy in future, just because I need an anti-perspirant as well. However, I will definitely recommend, we don’t all sweat the same 🙂

3 1/2 stars
