Dove Men & Care Deodorant STINKS. LITERALLY.
Posted by on 04/17/2011
So I found a good deal on Dove Men & Care deodorant at Wal Mart, I smelled it, and it smelled pretty good, so I purchased it. Well what a bad decision. Every time I use it, in a matter of less than 12 hours it wore off, and I start to stink. It says right on the label it offers 48 hour protection. WHEW! I could NOT imagine me putting it on for 48 hours. Id smell pretty darn funky by then! I do not have overactive glands, and never had trouble with any other deodorant brand when it comes to body odor, but this brand is just awful. I took a shower around 6:00PM last night, and put the deodorant on afterwards. I wake up this morning (8:00AM) and I have awful BO.

I will NEVER buy this brand again. It totally STINKS! LITERALLY!

Is it just deodorant, or an antiperspirant as well?

They have both and you really need to be careful which one you pick up. The containers look the same.

Well, to be honest, I normally go for the white that goes on clear. This time, I picked up the blue that goes on clear. I never really pay attention to deoderant/anti perspirant because they all seem to work the same for me. just noticed quite a difference in this brand but honestly, when it says right on the front it offers 48 hour protection, well it clearly does not. You're lucky to get 12.

Every body is different, with a varying ph factor. Knowing your body typy is the first step in choosing the appropriate antiperspirant/deodorant. When in doubt, consult with a pharmacist or physician to help determine the products best for your body type. Your diet affects your ph level as well.

Sweating is your body’s mechanism to cool down. Sweat has no odor; the familiar unpleasant odor is caused by bacteria that live on our skin. These bacteria metabolize the proteins and fatty acids from our sweat, causing body odor.

Deodorants deal with the smell by neutralizing it and by killing the bacteria that metabolize the proteins and fatty acids. Antiperspirants on the other hand, try to prevent sweating by blocking the pores using aluminum. Without sweat, the bacteria cannot metabolize proteins and fatty acids that cause body odor.

i like to use arm & hammer ultra max invisible solid. it is antiperspirant, and comes in 3 scents, powder fresh, unscented, and sport. it last very very long, and cost is low. active ingredient, aluminum zirconium tetrachlorohydrex 19%. goes on clear.

review very helpful.

lol ript, did you just call PC stinkly??
Posted by trmn8r on 2011-04-17:
P-C -> I believe you mentioned previously that you buy deodorant that is on sale, even if it isn't a brand that you normally use.

I admire your adventurous side (away from your armpits) but I couldn't do that. In my life, I've tried maybe 4 or 5 deodorants. 3 of those 5 were unacceptable in one way or another.

Good luck out there - it's a jungle.

It is true...not every deodorant works for every one.

mad, lol! My comment was meant to be helpful and relevant, and in no way sought to belittle or diminish the importance of the review.

I shower daily lol.

I have a Secret 12 hour protection and it literally does not work AT ALL.

I use Degree works well for me.
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-04-17:
I use Degree. It's the only deoderant that works and holds up through the hot AZ summers. Other brands are fine in the winter, but not the summers.

Agreed yaya, when your sweating like a pig in the 110 degree heat you need something that will last all day.

I have used Secret Clinical Strength since it came out and am very happy with it----this product even works through and after a marathon tanning bed session
Posted by CrazyRedHead on 2011-04-17:
I can't use any deo that is meant for a woman, I guess I'm to strong. I use degree and it works. When I used to run 35-40 miles a week NOTHING worked. You definatley wouldn't want to be around me.
Posted by Ytropious on 2011-04-17:
You know crazy, I've been meaning to try a mens deo. Ladies products don't work for me. They smell pretty good but I continue to sweat! I'm afraid of smelling like a dude though. My hubs' Right Guard has a distinct manly smell to it. Are there any non manly smelling mens deos? lol
Posted by CrazyRedHead on 2011-04-17:
I use a solid deo. I'd rather smell manly then stink. I also like Old Spice "Swagger".
Posted by Nohandle on 2011-04-17:
I use the old fashioned Ban roll on deodorant and have for years. I've never perspired much under my arms but by golly it will come dripping from my scalp right on down to the tip of my nose if I'm outside in the heat. I don't stink but forget the hairdo. lol
Posted by Skye on 2011-04-17:
I change my deoderants every six months. I read years ago, they should be changed, because your body get used to them, and they may not work as well.

I use Dove invisible solid, Degree, Lady Speed Stick and Sure. But Dove is still my favorite.
Posted by GenuineNerd on 2011-04-17:
I usually use clear gel antiperspirants-and usually get at least enough protection between daily showers, unless I'm outside all day in hot weather. I typically use either Gillette Series, Right Guard, Old Spice, or Mennen Speed Stick Gel. Never tried the Dove Men + Care antiperspirant-don't know offhand if it comes in a clear gel. I don't care much for solids-they are either white and chalky, or if they are deodorant-only, some of them, mainly cheap dollar-store brands, tend to irritate my arm pits. The clear gels are cooling and last a long time for me.
Posted by trmn8r on 2011-04-17:
That's a good idea, GN. I actually just go au naturale if I am working around the house or making a short trip. I just wash more often. I also don't like solid deodorants at all, and haven't been happy with gel - I use a roll-on. Everyone is different.

I'm on a horse. Your man could smell like me. Use Old Spice.
Posted by Alain on 2011-04-18:
I use whatever is in the cabinet. I never expect it to last more than 4-5 hours. For hot days, I use frequent showers.
Posted by CrazyRedHead on 2011-04-18:
I love the Old Spice commercials, they are just to funny. Smell like a mans man.

Do you ever check your IM'S CrazyRed?
Posted by Anonymous on 2011-04-18:
Of course since you bought it at walmart and you're not satisfied you can get a full refund. That’s the great thing about walmart.

Thanks for the heads up Prince-Caesar. I'll be sure to avoid dove men and care deodorant.

Great review!

I just looked at them for the first time in a couple of years. I forgot that they were even there. I just read through them all and if anyone is upset that I never answered them, I'm sorry.

There is a commercial about Dove, that shows a woman floating around with just a ribbon. A very small ribbon. Showing that all she has on is that ribbon and one false move and she would be naked. This shows at a family time and I think is quite rank for that time slot. I also think Dove is in bad taste all the way around.

Get over it.
Posted by Skye on 2007-02-05:
Well I don't really think that commercial is bad. It's computer generated with that ribbon, and it's the commercial for the body butter ribbons, which I use and love. The one I use is in the purple container, the jojoba butter one. I think there are plenty of worse commercials than that one. Again, ~jmo~. Besides, that ribbon isn't small. It covers up enough. I have to totally agree with emt, get over it. Change the channel when that offensive commercial comes on. What do want next, commercials that show bathing suits to be banned???
Posted by spiderman2 on 2007-02-05:
Dove is in bad taste all around? How else are they offensive to you?
Posted by Skye on 2007-02-05:
Good question spiderman, maybe the op can will come back, and enlighten the rest of us. Nothing offensive to me.
Posted by Skye on 2007-02-05:
Maybe the op lives in a convent?? This is the real world, and JayD is correct, the human body is beautiful.

Not that I'm into censorship, but seriously folks, try having a kid and explaining the Victoria's Secret commericals, along with the Herpes drug commercials, the erectile disfuction commericals...when is enough enough? When you look at how it affects the morality of children, I think you'd see the poster's point of view. My friend has to keep her thumb on the channel change button all the time to keep her 12 year old from seeing this crap. She shouldn't have to between the hours of 3-8. What happened to family hour? If you don't believe me, talk to a 15 year old and you'll find out they know about ten times what you think they do...and where did they get it? Television.
Posted by SherryH on 2007-02-06:
I like the Dove commericals with the non-model models. After nine o'clock. LOL.
Posted by Skye on 2007-02-06:
That's what I'm talking about Sherry. There are so many worse ones, I just couldn't think of any. I hate those herpes commercials, and the ED ones. I don't think family hour exists anymore.

Does anybody remember the days when they could only show a bra on the outside of a shirt?
Posted by bill on 2007-02-06:
I have seen those commercials and I don't think there is anything wrong with them.. They are not sexual in nature and its relevant to the product they are selling. I never understand why some people get so freaked out over the human body.
Posted by Skye on 2007-02-06:
Shakra, do you mean they actually had to advertise a bra on the outside of a shirt?? That's weird. It's not such a big secret that we wear bra's! Times have changed. Now it's thongs all over TV on shows and stuff.

Oh grow up.
Posted by Noneill on 2007-02-06:
I think any attempt to "shield" our children to the horrors of mild nudity or other subjects of a sensitive nature is futile. It could be an excellent opportunity to open the lines of communication with our kids. I hope this op doesn't suck his/her breath in and run for the remote control when a Dove commercial comes on. This is teaching the kids that the human body is disgusting and dirty. That would be a shame.
Posted by DORCAS on 2007-02-06:
I think some of the commercials deserve more of a rating then the actual shows themselves. Okay, Shakra give it up; How long ago were these bra commercials shown? lol

Yeah but in Oklahoma we are all Bill O Cultural warriors. If I'm not mistaken we have laws against showering in the nude. We don't like nudity here and don't take kindly to the Hollywood elite or the Madison avenue suits cramming their godless skin flicks down our throats. It’s bad enough that people are naked beneath their clothes… don't need to draw attention to with sicko perverted dove commercials. We outlawed the playboy channel and for good reason cause one of our suburbs had the highest teen pregnancy rates in the country. No doubt due to TV and you yankee smut merchants. We don't teach sex ed, porno is totally illegal, got to go to Texas for that and our cold beer has to be less than 3.2% alcohol. We are a proud people with proud traditions and first class seating assignments on the heaven express – too bad none of you soulless blue state people will be joining us. Not only do we legislate god we shield our nakedness and your nakedness with shield of righteousness. So, please, Keep your dirty little girls off our clean TV sets. Don't mess with the OK of C!!!!

I've recorded that commercial several times and play it over and over. I keep hoping the ribbon will fall off. No luck so far, darn it!

I'll pray for you Ponie.

I remember those commercials were Jane Russell would wear an 18 hour bra over her shirt.
Posted by maribel1986 on 2007-02-06:
you have got to be joking. there's CARTOONS out there with worse messages than a SOAP commercial. Seeing a person in a ribbon does not scar children for life. It's a natural thing and it's non-sexual. get over it.
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-02-06:
I bet curtgre finds kissing scenes disguisting, how old is he/she anyway. There is a ad for create your own zwinky, I bet she would find that offensive as well.
Posted by Shakra on 2007-02-06:
It actually was probably in the 70s. I am 45 if you guys are implying that I am old and with cane. :-P
Posted by Aember24 on 2007-02-15:
Lol ive seen the commercials and don't find them offensive at all. Wasn't sexual in the slightest. Your kids are going to be more screwed up if you make the human body seem like a bad thing and "ooooh turn your eyes theres a ribbon clad lady", garbage. Now I can understand if it was full blown porno style imagery...but it wasnt. If that commercial turned you on ...I can only imagine that you were raised the same way you are raising your children. SO STOP THE INSANITY!
