Unspoken Beauty Topic



Let’s talk about a difficult topic shall we? For years and years I have struggled a lot when it comes to sweat and odour. It can be a difficult and, at times, embarrassing topic to talk about. But we should talk about it! Without the need to feel awkward, because it’s an everyday occurrence.

For me I just have to try a little harder than your average jo. Therefore, when I found my Mitchum Deodorant it was like the heavens had lifted and beamed it down to me. For years I swapped and changed deodorants as none never really seemed to do the trick for me. It can be difficult to find a product that would last. A problem I have, no matter what part of my body it is, is that I get used to a product very easily. And then over time the product will no longer work for me.

I don’t have this problem with the Mitchum ush up deodorant, I think it’s the stick formula that helps to combat the sweat! It claims to be a 48hr protection that helps to combat sweat and odour. The aspect I think I liked the best was that it’s an antiperspirant and a deodorant in one.

The scent is very light and not overpowering at all. What I really don’t like in some deodorants are the scents, as I feel they are just trying to mask the bad odour and are not helping to combat it. This one doesn’t have much of a scent at all, so there is no hiding behind it.

Where a lot of products that are rollerballs have a very wet formula, this one is automatically drying. I hate products that are so wet you feel you have to stand with your arms in the air for 10 minutes before it is completely dry.

My only problem with it, is that it can leave white marks on darker clothing. So be sure to let it dry, or apply it after changing – which can be difficult at times! However, I have yet to find a deodorant that matches this one in staying power, so I can put up with the white marks here and there. (Perfectly rectified by a baby wipe!)


What is your favourite deodorant? Do you have any techniques to combat sweat & odour?
