I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central for Dove. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
Yes, I am going to tell you about a deodorant. Yes, I am going to introduce you to the term ‘Piticure’ and yes, I am going to share that I hate underarm odor. All things that I know you will appreciate me sharing! Because there is a new product on the market that gave me smoother, softer (don’t ask how I know that) underarms in three days! Dove Advanced Care is here for all of us ladies to fall in love with!
Do you remember the never ending Winter this year? I sure do and I live in Texas where it could have been considered mild compared to the rest of the country. With bulky sweaters and the desire to never move lest you hit a cold spot in the house, shaving was not a priority for me. I did it… but I didn’t like it.
I remember having very dry and irritated underarms at one point. I brushed it off to Winter irritations but now that I am shaving daily so that I can wear my tank tops and sleeveless dresses, I am noticing that irritation coming back again. Well, there is a reason for that I never considered. A recent published study shows that 36% of what you remove when shaving is actually skin – only 64% is hair.* As a result of this shaving irritation, armpit skin loses 50% more moisture, which can lead to dryness and sensitivity.**
Yes huh! That explains it! That makes sense.
Rather than live with it, however, I decided to do something about it and give myself a ‘Piticure’! What’s that, you say? A Piticure! Super revitalization care for your underarms! Here is how you do it!
Step 1: Exfoliate
Use a gentle exfoliating scrub or wipes to cleanse underarms and draw out impurities. Impurities in the underarm area can cause unwanted irritation (e.g., folliculitis/ingrown hair); exfoliation and cleansing can help to relieve this
Step 2: Rinse
Rinse the area with warm water and pat dry with a soft towel
Step 3: Care
Apply Dove® Advanced Care Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant with NutriumMoisture™. It is Formulated with NutriumMoisture™ to care for underarm skin and Provides softer, smoother underarm skin in just 3 days! Plus it offers 48-hour odor and wetness protection.
Seems a no brainer to me!
I have been using NEW Dove Advanced Skin for about two weeks now and I love it. I have the Nourished Beauty and Revive scents and love the subtle scent of them both. Most importantly, my armpits are dry, odor free and the irritation is gone!
With swimsuits, cute summer dresses and more daring us to show our pits, it is time to take care of the sensitive skin that is under our arms! Pick up NEW Dove Advanced Care and then come back and tell me all about your Piticure!
