TheChicGeek says, “Sales of deodorants and antiperspirants are down during the pandemic. According to the consumer giant, Unilever, who makes Lynx, Sure and Dove, consumers appeared to abandon personal hygiene while stuck at home. The company said in its last financial statement, ‘Deodorants declined high-single digit as the deodorants market was also impacted by lower consumer usage.’
But, return we will and you couldn’t wrong with picking up this from Proverb. While the environmental credentials are fantastic, what really matters is how you feel and smell. This makes you feel confident and the smell is great.
It is expensive, but it feels quality and they explain their pricing on the website which is a nice touch. I tried Wild Mint & Eucalyptus, I’m not sure if it was ‘Active’ or not, and I’m not really clear on the difference, you just want the one that works the best, but it smelt delicious even geranium like, which I love. Very green and clean. And the smell lasts. This is definitely going on TheChicGeek Recommends list.”
