Nivea Sensitive anti-perspirant roll-on

  • Print

ON THE SHELF: Nivea Sensitive anti-perspirant roll-on has no added alcohol or preservatives and is free of fragrance. It has chamomile extract and avocado oil to soothe sensitive skin. Costs $3.69 to $4.49 at drug stores and supermarkets.

FEATURES: With more workplaces and gyms adopting a "No Scents" policy, this is a welcome option. It lives up to its sensitive name: it's very gentle and non-irritating. Also, it's refreshing change from the increasingly ridiculous scent combos permeating the beauty industry -- apricot-white ginger or honeysuckle-chipotle.

FAILURES: Perhaps if you're one of those women who glow, this might work for you. I'm a sweater, however, and this product proved woefully inadequate. Its claim to last 24 hours is greatly exaggerated. Also, roll-on? Really? Is this 1982?

BUY? BYE-BYE? If you have allergies/sensitive skin and perspire in a gentle, ladylike fashion, Nivea Sensitive might be up your alley. Otherwise, you're risking embarrassment -- and even the scent-averse would probably prefer the smell of perfume to the odour of sweat. Bye-bye.
