Spring has sprung. Warmer weather’s almost here for good, which means tank tops and sundresses aren’t far behind. When we start to bare our bodies just a bit more with spaghetti straps and string bikinis, it’s vital that our deodorant stays put and invisible. For fresh and fragrant deodorant that sticks to your skin and not your clothes, here are our top deodorant picks for spring.
Choosing a deodorant or anti-perspirant is a very personal yet very important decision to balance. You want to be confident in your every day that your body is protected from embarrassing odors and wetness, but you also want to ensure that the product doesn’t cake itself under your arms or smear all over your clothing. You also want to make sure it’s effective for the duration of your day.
If you haven’t already found a tried and true deodorant or anti-perspirant product, I urge you to consider Degree® Women Ultra Clear (Little Black Dress Approved – and it is, too!) and Dove ® go fresh™ product lines.
Even if you are a faithful supporter of one particular brand that never fails you, I encourage you to check these products out. I have been a faithful user of the same deodorant product for probably between eight and ten years. These products offer true dependability, and their fragrances alone offer a pretty strong argument for a switch!
DEGREE® WOMEN ULTRA CLEAR
Little Black Dress Approved Degree Women Ultra Clear has passed my test for both clear and smudge-proof factors. The anti-perspirant delivers the ultimate wetness protection and also stays on your skin, not on your clothes. The best thing of all is that it doesn’t leave those embarrassing white marks on your shirts or dresses – trust me, I checked. I even went to the mall wearing it, tried on a few dresses, and only got a very small, barely visible smudge on one dress when I literally had to wrestle my way out of it.
I tested this product a few days during the workweek, and I am happy to report that the fresh and flirty fragrance stayed with me throughout each day. Sweaters, close-fitting shirts – it didn’t matter what I wore; Little Black Dress Approved Degree Women Ultra Clear deodorant’s results remained the same. In fact, I would sometimes catch a whiff of the deodorant, smelling so good that I would almost think I recently applied an aromatic lotion or body spray fragrance. Nope, just my deodorant, doing its job!
According to product literature, Little Black Dress Approved Degree Women Ultra Clear uses a TriClear™ formula that allows it to go on clear and stay clearer. In my experiences using Degree Women Ultra Clear, this formula is highly effective, as I didn’t notice any smudging, smearing, flaking or other problems caused by so many deodorants.
Degree® Women Ultra Clear retails for roughly $3.64 for a 2.6 oz. container, but prices may vary. Available fragrances include: Pure Petal, Pure Satin, Pure Clean, Pure Rain, Pure Powder, and Pure Oxygen.
DOVE® go fresh™ ULTIMATE CLEAR INVISIBLE SOLID
Designed for 20-something women who have way too much stress to battle in their daily lives, the Dove go fresh™ line offers women a fresh new selection of products and fragrances. Dove’s collection aims to remind women to refresh, cool off, and energize – because it is so important to recharge our batteries every day, even if only for just a few moments.
I tried out the Dove go fresh™ Energizing Ultimate Clear Invisible Solid deodorant. The product applied very smoothly and cleanly, without any additional residue. The grapefruit and lemongrass fragrance is a delightful and refreshing scent that helped to get me moving in the morning (I am so not a morning person).
According to product literature, Ultimate Clear Invisible Solid contains ¼ Translucent Moisturizers™ that help to leave underarms softer and smoother in five days. The deodorant delivers 24-hour wetness and odor protection while offering a fresh and flirty fragrance that is oh-so delightful compared to standard powder-based products.
Dove Ultimate Clear Invisible Solid retails for around $3.79 for 2.6 oz. product or $0.99 for a 0.5 oz. travel size product. Available fragrances include Refreshing (clean waterlily and fresh mint – blue cap), Energizing (juicy, sparkling grapefruit and lemongrass – yellow cap), and Cooling (crisp cucumber and calming green tea – green cap).

I really enjoyed both products enough to purchase them on a regular basis. I’m actually a firm believer that every woman should always have a spare deodorant anyway, either in her car or set aside with other vital items (like spare toothpaste and toothbrush), ready to travel at a moment’s notice.
