A Couple Of Bodycare Essentials

Charli XCX - Impulse Why Not?
I love that body sprays seem to be on a revival in the past few years, that 90s nostalgia won't die but I don't mind. Affordable, doesn't hurt they have a pleasing scent now & again. This other offering from the Impulse & Charli XCX is "Why Not?" a blend of citrus scents of frozen Lemon, Bergamot & bitter Orange with an infusion of Earl Grey tea blended with spices of nutmeg & cardamom. The can is a vibrant yellow with stenciled fruit, palm trees, tigers and sunglasses and love hearts printed over it make it more a staple for Summer.

When it's first sprayed out I find it very bold before it dies down and I can smell some of the spice, amongst the citrus. It's an interesting blend, different. A little goes a long way, spray too much and I find it can be too much. The smell is more mature & not that girly than others you'd associate with body sprays associated with teens. Ah it's nice to have in your handbag, glove compartment, gym bag for a quick refresher, RRP is £1.99 but currently 98p at time of writing on the Superdrug Website.

Sure Women Maximum Protection Confidence Deodorant
I was amazed by this deodorant, firstly I've never had a cream deodorant before so I wasn't sure what to expect, I've tried sprays, natural and roll ons but a cream! It's a screw bottom and it comes through the designed holes with the centre having the larger holes targeting the middle of your armpit more. Not only does this smell fresh but with an almost powdery scent. It glides on the skin (hairs or not) and leaves behind no residue or whiteness only leaving behind an amazingly smooth feel to the skin It's fairly expensive compared to some others on the market at £4.99 but I might even say it's worth the price tag.

Big question - sweat, how does it hold up? Not bad, doesn't stop the sweat obviously but it helps to mask the smell during a workout and limits the amount of sweat for myself. To get the maximum protection Sure suggest applying this before bed, the TRIsolid formula provides maximum wetness protection. It last throughout the following mornings shower and the next day. You can reapply in the morning. I apply deodorant before bed but sometimes I will randomly wake up sweating and research shows that our temperature goes down at night unlike during the day when it varies. By applying this at night while sweat glands aren't as active but the skin is more receptive will help this product building up the protection throughout the day....Not a bad concept at all. I tried this as my temp at night does go up and I know this by the amount of times I might wake up hot and clammy but this kept my dry and during the day and after reapplying I found I wasn't as sweaty as usual but let me find a hot day to really test it out.

Are you an Impulse fan? Tried any of these?
