  • Sadly, I've never really used alot of their cosmetics except for maybe a couple different foundations and powders, maybe a blush here and there, but when I saw their deodorant I really wanted to try it out and see what would make it different from all the other competition out there, and there were a couple things I noticed right away
  • First off, there is absolutely no fragrance in this product and that was good because sometimes my skin can get a little irritated by fragrances and sometimes they just don't smell right on me or don't interact with the chemicals in my body the right way and I can't wear a lot of perfumes a lot of the times because they always smell slightly off on me and I don't like it in the least
  • I normally don't like gels because I don't think they dry very fast and my armpits always feel a little bit damp for a long time afterwards and I'm always afraid I'm going to get something on my clothes
  • This gel dried pretty fast I'll give it that but at the same time I don't think it did what it said it would do in that it did leave some residue on my clothes
  • I really did like that there wasn't any fragrance, and I think it did help control odor but not necessarily the wetness

      I didn’t even know Almay came out with a deodorant. I always thought it was just a makeup company and nothing more. Sadly, I’ve never really used alot of their cosmetics except for maybe a couple different foundations and powders, maybe a blush here and there, but when I saw their deodorant I really wanted to try it out and see what would make it different from all the other competition out there, and there were a couple things I noticed right away.

      smell slightly off on me and I don’t like it in the least. Because this Almay anti-perspirant and deodorant didn’t have any fragrance in it I didn’t have to worry about whether or not it would smell funny on my skin.

      And the other thing I noticed about this deodorant is that it’s a clear gel. I normally don’t like gels because I don’t think they dry very fast and my armpits always feel a little bit damp for a long time afterwards and I’m always afraid I’m going to get something on my clothes. This gel dried pretty fast I’ll give it that but at the same time I don’t think it did what it said it would do in that it did leave some residue on my clothes. It was very odd because about an hour after it was applied even though it ...


      • went on clear you could actually start to see a white residue building up on my skin and flaking onto my clothes and it was way worse than if I’d just used a regular white deodorant like Secret which is what I normally would use.

        I wasn’t happy with that part of my experiment with Almay deodorant and couldn’t see why they would claim it wouldn’t leave residue on clothes. No one could see the residue, because it was on the inside of my shirt, but that doesn’t mean I liked it any more or less than if it were on the outside of my clothes. The whole point is that it’s not supposed to do exactly what it ended up doing and I had to be careful in the future using this deodorant not to wear certain things that I thought this might show

        through in the long run.

        But there was never any irritation and everything else was okay. I really did like that there wasn’t any fragrance, and I think it did help control odor but not necessarily the wetness. I didn’t feel wet when I applied this one like I do with most gel deodorants, because it dried fast enough that I was pleased with it, but at the same time it didn’t control the wetness throughout the day especially on days when I was real active and on the go all the time.

        They could stand to make some improvements on this deodorant including the gel itself which didn’t stay clear and with the lasting protection against wetness. But they should still keep it no fragrance because that’s great for those of us who have skin sensitivities or don’t really react well or interact well with certain scents.

    Almay products are way too expensive. Especially if you are in the Caribbean.
