Once A Week Deodorant

Long time ago, back home in Penang I know someone who hates taking bath. She has excuses for everything. She can’t take bath in the morning coz the water is too cold that she might catch a cold. Therefore, she comes to school without bathing. Then, there was this invention called water heater and yet she had some excuses for not bathing. She bathes’ once a day and she has to take her bath before 6pm otherwise I don’t know she might turn into gremlin perhaps?!

So, anyways this should be good news for her where ever she is. Now, she can sweat all she wants and never will stink, well at least for a week. 

Last Friday I wrote an article for on Once A Week Deodorant. Finally, I laid my hands on it. It only costs RM8.90, very reasonably priced. I tried it on Saturday night and will be blogging the progress report daily.

The packaging comes with strict instructions on how to use the wipes and it is important the users read it very carefully before applying the wipes. It strongly suggests that the wipes should only be used after sundown and not on direct sunlight. This is because the ingredients used are light sensitive. The chemicals used aren’t really hazardous, coz I recognize one of it as being a primary compound in my hygiene wash.

I just couldn't find a better place to take the photos but here you have it the opening ceremony of the product. I had to wait till sundown to open my Once A Week Deodorant.

The instructions was precise, that the application should only take place after sundown and not to expose the wipes under sunlight. Apparently, high possibility of your hands and armpit area turning orange or black. 

The instructions also said that the armpit should be clean and DRY before application. So, I made sure of it. The wipes don't really have smell. It's was simply odourless.

I was pretty thorough with my application, the packaging even comes with diagram on how thorough one should be. The instructions stated that if you are not thorough with your application, the wipes won't work as it should be. I spent 5 minutes applying on each armpits, the longest I have ever spent applying deodorant.

My armpits remained wet for at least 5 minutes, you are not supposed to dress until after it completely dries off. I guess this is because if the chemical gets to your clothes it might stain it. This is just my assumption though.

I have gone without deodorant for a day and so far no smell. I felt it was rather weird this morning normally I'd apply my deodorant right after shower and today I left the house without any. I carried my usual deodorant in my handbag just incase if the wipes don't work as it should.

I behaved rather weirdly too, I kept sniffing my armpits whenever I get the chance just to be sure I don't stink. After more than 8 hours being out today. Towards, the end of the day I noticed there is smell but not as strong as it would have been. 

I am inclined to do my research on this product, there must something that's making it work. Perhaps frequent bathing will actually help the chemical compound in the wipes to work it's magic. An ordinary person would bath twice or thrice a day. Thus, you stay fresh and stink-free but what if a person doesn't bathe at all? Will the deodorant last for a week like it's advertised? Hmm...I can't go without bathing for a week though.
