Forever Aloe Ever-Shield Deodorant Stick review


Ahhh deodorant. When you're running around at work and after the kids like a headless chicken all day, dragging home heavy bags of shopping and battling with the buses after work, it can be your best friend. But what about all the chemicals in them? Sometimes, I spray on a deodorant and it instantly creates a foamy or dusty mess that falls to the floor and makes me wonder what it does to my skin. I was therefore very pleased to put the Forever Aloe-Shield Deodorant Stick by Forever Living Products to the test.

This product contains none of the harsh aluminium salts, parabens or alcohol that are usually found in antiperspirant deodorants. It uses a unique Aloe Vera formula instead, using plants grown in the Dominican Republic. At the plantation, all Aloe is picked and then is sent to be processed as quickly as possible to ensure that the inner gel is still intact with its nutritional and natural qualities. The gel then goes through a special stabilisation process, with Forever Living being the only company in the world to hold the patent to stabilise Aloe this way. This means the Aloe used in Ever-Shield Deodorant is premium quality to protect you from irritation and dryness.

The Forever Aloe Vera deodorant formula promises to provide exceptional all-day protection from sweat. It can also be used to soothe sensitive underarm skin and is even recommended by Macmillan as suitable for people recovering from a cancer treatment. Even if this doesn't apply to you, I still find that very reassuring.

So, does it actually work? Well, the first thing that impressed me when I peeled off the top was the scent. Unlike many natural products, it has a strong fragrance, which is very pleasant. Imagine walking through a country passage surrounded by brambles and trees, looking out over green fields, during a summer rain-storm - that's what it makes me think of !

Secondly, the application is very simple. It slides on simply and effectively after your shower, and doesn't even sting, even if you've just been shaving. However, it does feel a bit "damp" for a while, so give it time to dry before you get dressed.

In terms of effectiveness, it's not bad at all. I did have some dampness at the end of some days, but even with my regular deodorant, this can happen, if I've been running around a lot, so I'd say that's pretty efficient.
