So, when you read the heading, you thought,"Who wants a review of a roll on, right?". But every lady knows that no matter how much of perfume she can spritz on, still, one can't be  enough careful to take care of her underarms. So, when summers are here ( even when it is not), we need to be odour-free.

I had reviewed this a very long time back. Yet, while doing some editing, there was an error and I thought of featuring it again. Why not?

 I had reviewed it back in 2010 I think. But looking back, I remember I was extremely satisfied with the product. Four years down the line, my opinion has not changed much.

My Experience:To begin with, I don't have dark under-arms issues. I am rarely plagued by odour since I drink plenty of water and scrub and wash regularly. But that does not mean I can't have the mildest issue in the sultriest summer. But, yes, this roll on effectively takes care. I am not plagued by the unpleasant thing I don't want to name again. :P Yes, body-odour. Yes, I said it! Ha!

Although it does not stop me from sweating, the sweat seems to be lesser and this is not the part I don't like. Wondering why? I don't like the idea of tampering with body's natural mechanism and the thought of clogged/blocked glands and pores makes me pretty uncomfortable.

I can't comment on the 'whitening' part from my own experience. But, my sister-in-law had very dark underarms postpartum. Being desperate, she got hold of this and she claims that Nivea Roll on deodorant cleared up everything in a month.

Now, I can neither say if it is Nivea Roll on deodorant or that her hormones adjusted to normal levels, but she seems pretty convinced that it was this.

There you go,

  • Keeps you odor-free for a very long time.
  • Did not cause darkening or irritation.
  • 50 ml comes for 175 INR and easily available.
  • Has a mild scent.
  • I can't comment on 48 hours because I bathe every day. But yes, I do not have to worry about odour for the day.
  • Did help combating darkness for a person I know.

  • The fact that it causes one to sweat less. I have already commented on why I don't like that.

Btw,it contains aluminum if you are bothered by it. But you should know, and a little research would show that the issue of aluminum in deodorants was actually more of a rumour blown way too out of proportion.  ( Don't believe me? search webmd.com).

Shall I repurchase? Even when I did not want to, I have done so in all these years, at least, as a summer staple. So, yes.

Do I recommend? Unless you are concerned about sweating less  you should give this a try.

For my part, I would stick to something even milder, but for summer, this is hands down, the best one and I am always possessing a bottle of it.

That's pretty much I have to say about this one.

FYI: I had also reviewed the Nivea Roll on deodorant for men here. So, do check it out.
