REVIEW: I tested Shield Motion Sense deodorant roll-on for one week and this is what I thought of it:

Anyone who’s ever seen me working out knows that I can work up a sweat – excessive sweat. Even when I go to events and end up dancing, I have to give myself a break, otherwise, I would start sweating. It’s interesting that I hardly ever see other women suffering from the same situation – only older women or girls that aren’t usually active, sweat like me.

Shield’s Motion Sense antiperspirants were designed to keep any woman fresher for longer as they contain microcapsules that spurt fresh scents when you move.

I’ve never had a concern with body odour but was excited to try the motion sense range since I hadn’t used Shield in years and wanted to see whether the deodorant, was really activated by movement. If this product was really going to be tried to its maximum potential, my on-the-go schedule would be the ideal tester.

For one week, I applied the deodorant daily. At first, I noticed that the consistency of the deodorant was quite runny and I thought, “Great, now I get to have moist armpits for a week”. I usually also apply two coats of roll-on with my normal deodorant when I apply it because sometimes when you roll the deodorant under your armpit, little or no product appears from the first roll. None of this applied to Shield’s Fresh Confidence roll-on. My armpits were dry within minutes of me applying the product, and I didn’t have to coat my underarms to ensure that the product was actually there.

On the second day of using the deodorant, I was too busy to focus on whether it was working. I started my day early – I had an evening training session at ETA; I was going to have to prepare for a meeting the next day, and I still had to do some grocery shopping.  Needless, to say, I was exhausted. As I was rushing through the shopping mall to get my groceries, after work, I bumped into some friends that I’d met on my trip to Zimbabwe. I didn’t have time to chat but I was really happy to see them and caught up for five minutes before shopping. By 7PM, as I walked to greet my boyfriend before my workout, he complimented me on my unfamiliar scent of perfume. I hadn’t even worn perfume that day – I was in such a hurry; I had only been wearing Shield Motion Sense since 5:45AM that morning.

The next evening, before showering, I noticed a powdery consistency under my arms which was residue from the deodorant. If anything, I’m happy that the product isn’t clogging pores. Another full day’s activities had gone and went and here I still smelt great. The scent of the deodorant enhanced throughout the day and every now and again I could get a whiff of the musky scent – that made me feel good. I felt confident, just as they said I would.

Buy your Fresh Confidence deodorant roll-on at any Clicks store or Dis-Chem Pharmacy for R28,99.

    I could never find a roll on that works for me. Every time somebody recommended something I would try it but never works. I tried this as you recommended and its amazing

    Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance”
    between superb usability and visual appeal. I must
    say you’ve done a excellent job with this. Also, the blog loads super
    fast for me on Internet explorer. Outstanding Blog!
