Not for all types

This deodorant is for women who sit at home or the office all day and never have to lift a finger. if you are even a little active, the scent is non-existent and you will sweat.

Smell of the Year!

I’ve been using this deodorant for 2 years now. I am a person that shops by smell when buying deodorant, so other features don’t matter much to me. I first got a small sample of this deodorant and brought it along on my vacation. I came back associating my vacation with the smell of this deodorant. It smells amazing and reading the other reviews here, I felt compelled to write my bit in agreement. When I put this deodorant on, I feel like it would last until the end of the day. I would never have to worry about re-application (“24 hour protection”). It gives you confidence and makes you feel good knowing that you smell great, not to mention that it is composed of 1/4 translucent moisturizer (“smoother underarms in 5 days. go sleeveless!”).

Love this product

Just like a whole line of Dove cucumber and green tea collection of soaps and body washes, this product smells good and is very reliable. I dont know anyone who dont like this product so far.

The BEST Deodorant I’ve Used In Years!

Most of the wetter deodorants sting after shaving…not this one. I’ve always been a fan of DOVE products but this latest deodorant is by far the BEST I’ve used across the board. Its not too sticky and not too dry and crumbly. And lasts all day. Plus the scent it to DIE for. This is a bargain, I bought 2 6 packs, should last a year! And the price is amazing. Just wish Amazon ships personal care items direct to Australia. It would be well worht the shipping costs!

Excellent deodorant, great smell

I bought this based on the good reviews from other users and because I love the smell of the other Dove products in the cucumber scent. I figured it would smell nice and work like any other deodorant or anti-perspirant on the market, no big deal. It works BETTER than any other product I’ve used before and it smells fantastic! No greasy feeling when you apply it, no marks at all on your clothes after you apply it, it goes on dry and stays that way. Even in the high humidity and heat of east Texas combined with a day full of chasing dogs and horses around I did not find I had to reapply three or fours into my day. By the end of my day, I still felt and smelled fresh and clean. The Dove does cost more than other brands which at first glance is a negative, but then again in the long run I’m using less of it so it’s a wash. (pun intended.)

Didn’t work for me

I bought this scent because I heard that green tea and cucumber helps with odor.
When I tried this deodorant, I was smelling something fishy.
The scent is overpowering and when it wears of, it smells so terrible.
Didn’t help with keeping sweat at bay either.
So sweat+odor=very embarrassing moments in public and by myself!
Threw this deodorant away and will never try Dove again.
Also, they test on animals, how terrible!!!

Better than Secret

I had been a Secret gal for years and years, but decided to give Dove Ultimate Clear a try when I was shopping at Sams Club and they were out of Secret. I didn’t realize how effective it truly was until I switched back to Secret after running out of Dove. I suppose I never noticed it before, but Secret stops working after 8 hours or so and I can smell my armpit funk a little at the end of the day. I never had this problem with Dove. The cucumber and green tea scent is my favorite since the scent is pleasant without being too strong (I’m sensitive to most scents). It does go on clear and I haven’t noticed any marks on my clothes when using it. I’m a Dove gal now!

Works fine for fall/winter/spring

This deoderant smells very nice, but for me it doesn’t deliver the kind of protection I need for hot, humid summer days in the Northeast. But for cooler weather, I have no complaints.

Great non-irritating deodorant

I am a male with VERY sensitive skin! I was originally using Tom’s of Maine Natural Deodorant Stick, Apricot, 2.25-Ounce Stick (Pack of 6) but it was irritating my skin and wasn’t really helping control the body odor smell. I also tried Mitchum Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant, Power Gel, Sensitive Skin, Fragrance Free, 2.25 oz (Pack of 6) but the odor protection just wasn’t that great and it left my armpits feeling dry. I finally just decided to try this deodorant and it surprisingly has worked wonderfully. It smells good but not overpowering, controls any odor, and doesn’t irritate my skin or leave marks on my clothes. I’m very satisfied and don’t mind using a women’s deodorant.

I am a foo foo type of gal and usually go for the floral in deodorant or perfume. I tried the rose scented Dove and was not as happy with it as I am with the Fresh and Cool Essential. It is the only deodorant that I will use now as it makes me feel fresh all day long. The scent does not interfere with my perfume as you might think it would as it is not strong in odor. It keeps me fresh and dry even when I am sweating in 112 degree temps in the south this summer. I apply it after a shower at night and again in the morning. I even have it in the travel size to put in my purse when I am traveling overseas and not able to shower as often as when I am home.

First of all, this deodorant smells so good! I was so tired so having to choose between smelling like fake flowers or baby powder every time I chose a new one…this is just perfect. The scent isn’t overwhelming but it is noticeable and pleasant – I’ve been asked what fragrance I was wearing, and I don’t wear perfume!

This stuff also feels great. I have rather sensitive skin and some deodorants make my underarms burn if I put them on after shaving. Not this one! It really does have a sort of “cooling”, soothing effect. Every once in a while, I get a white mark on a black shirt, but it’s nothing that I haven’t experienced with every single other product out there. I’ve got several of these stocked up in case they stop making them – I don’t plan on ever using a different deodorant! Definitely give it a try.

This lasted about an hour. I work for a living as a paramedic. As such, it may have lasted 2 whole hours if I just sat still in an air conditioned environment. But as a deodorant/antiperspirant, utter failure. Smells nice though.

Love it!

Always loved Dove deodorant but when Ultimate came out I was excited to try it since it was suppose to stop irritation after shaving. I was not disappointed, this is the only deodorant I use and will search for it. Love this product a lot and will definitely recommend!

Ended up getting this because didn’t get to check out the prices before it shipped. The price had been raised since before

The best!

Dove deodorant is my favorite brand. I’m an athlete, so I need sweat control. Dove is the best of any deodorant I’ve tried, and it also smells great! I have really sensitive skin and allergies, so I hate heavy scents. This is cool and refreshing, with a mild, pleasant scent. I found it much more effective than Secret. It’s not sticky at all, and lasts all day. I would highly recommend it!

Smellin Dove Fresh 🙂

I love, love, love smelling Dove products. They all smell simple: fresh and clean, and don’t compete with my perfume. I had used the normal Dove Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, Invisible Solid, Original Clean for years before I finally made the switch to this product.. and I am certainly glad that I did.

I just love the fresh, crisp smell of this deodorant. I have sensitive armpits (especially after shaving, which I do every 2-3 days) and this product always helps with my irritation. After all, nothing is more embarrassing than having to scratch your armpits in public 🙂 haha. And being that I do not “apply sparingly” (I have a ritual of putting it on each armpit for 10 seconds, and then repeating) this stick can normally last me 2-3 weeks… which is pretty dang good considering how much I put on. Not to mention the price is pretty dang good for a reliable product. Most of the times I buy as many as I can when I find it on sale at the grocery store.

I also love the solid, although I have to be honest it still shows up on clothing. I apply my deodorant with my shirt on, normally just pulling down my collar and reaching in, so of course I never get it on the sides of my clothing… but it still shows up in the armpit of the shirt when I take it off. Maybe its just because I put so much on, but I’d rather have the stain than be smelly 🙂

I would highly recommend this product.

I love this “flavor” of dove deoderant – it smells so clean and fresh! The subscribe & save is a great option! Fast delivery & good price.
LillieBonnyman, KY

the best i have ever used

I have tried almost all brands of deodorant and this Dove Ultimate is by far the best I have used. It keeps me dry all day long as other brands would konk out half way during the day. The smell is really appealing also. I put some on today at 8 am and it is now 6:50 and it seems like I just applied it! Great price too especially if you have amazon prime.

Best I’ve Tried

I first got this deodorant because it came in a four pack at Costco. I couldn’t smell it then. I’m not a big fan of the cucumber scents, but this is alright (most people would love it). But the best thing about it is it really moisturizes, does NOT irritate at all, and I even think it helps with hair growth (I know that Dove has another line for this). I liked it so much that I got it again here at amazon. I really love how smooth and irritation free it leaves my skin, even RIGHT after shaving.
