Ditch Your Sleeves For The Sleeveless Summer Challenge! #SleevelessSummerSweeps #MC #Ad

*I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Dove Advanced Care Deodorant. I received a promotional item to facilitate my review.

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 1.32.06 AM    The Summer is the worst time to have irritated skin under your arms from shaving or irritating deodorants.  During the warm weather, all of us ladies want to wear cooler clothing and possibly go sleeveless to show off our great skin.  There are certain things that I look for when I am purchasing deodorant and Dove Advanced Care Deodorant has a lot of the qualities that appeal to me.

Screen Shot 2014-08-11 at 1.15.49 AM    Obviously, my number one item on my deodorant criteria list is that it keeps me fresh and clean.  Dove Advanced Care Deodorant with NutriumMoisture keeps you dry and odor-free for a long-lasting 48 hours which means that I can leave work and head straight to my afternoon business meetings without worrying about odor.  It is also clinically proven to reduce irritation from shaving and provides softer, smoother skin in just three days.  This is also very important to me since I have extremely sensitive skin and I often get irritated from shaving.

    I have used Dove for years. Great product and always a great price. Leaves my underarms smooth and doesn’t stain my clothes.

  2. My deodorant must work first and foremost. I prefer invisible solids so I can wear my sleeveless tops and dresses confidently. Thanks for sharing the Sleeveless summer challenge.

  3. I really need a clinical strength deodorant. But, I prefer the invisibles especially since I wear a lot of dark colors!

  4. I’m have to admit, I’m attracted to scent first and then look at the features of the deodorant. Would love to attend fashion week, what a dream prize!

  5. I am all about strong protection in my choice of deodorant. Second is whether or not it leaves marks on my clothes.

  6. I didn’t know that this was good for reducing irritation from shaving. That’s perfect since this is an ongoing problem for me.

  7. The number one thing I need is to make sure I don’t have pit sweat stains!! I can’t stand to have wetness under my arms! So gross!! Next, I don’t want the white marks!! I really enjoy Dove to help me stray away from these things.

  8. Lesley Stevens says

    I definitely don’t like having those white marks on my clothing, it’s the worst and very embarrassing if you don’t realize it and others are staring. Dove makes good products.

  9. Rebecca Bryant says

    Definitely don’t like the white marks especially when you’re in a social situation embarrassing.

  10. White marks are really embarrassing. I always have a little sleeve or a cardigan, but I still like what they are doing. More importantly, I want to make sure there are no harmful chemicals in my deodorant, though.

  11. coupontammy says

    I look for a deodorant that doesn’t leave white streaks all over my clothes or clump up in my armpit. I also look for one that is gentle enough for my skin. I love Dove products.

  12. M. Alexander Merill says

    When I was a kid I had some skin irritation problems at one point and the pediatrician my mom took me to said to use Dove products. Naturally, being a young boy, I felt stupid at first using what I thought was a girl’s product (lol) but it really did help the skin problems. Wish they had a man’s version of this deodorant!

  13. It is so important that my skin does not get irritated, then the double whammy of showing the world.. this is the perfect solution, right !

  14. I also have super sensitive skin and need a deodorant that will not irritate my skin further after shaving. Of course I want maximum protection against body odor! Dove deodorant has always worked for me!

  15. I fully support all women going sleeveless. That is until toplessness is legalized here in the US! 😉

  16. I always look for something that won’t give me red bumps – my skin is very sensitive. And also an invisable deodorant

  17. Lois Alter Mark says

    I love Dove! I use all their products!

  18. TouristMeetsTraveler says

    Great challenge, I’ll try get in on this! I’m a huge fan of Dove product also.

  19. Nice challenge.. i will send this over to my wife..

  20. I need a deodorant that isn’t going to irritate my skin. And also one that won’t irritate my nose. I dont like the ones that are too strong in odor.

  21. My deodorant needs to keep me smelling and feeling fresh, while sleeveless and while active around the kids!

  22. I love Dove deodorant. I need a deodorant that smells nice and works, and I prefer not to have invisible as I find they don’t work as well

  23. mena & taty says

    living in Florida a deodorant is very important year round! Well truth is even when I lived in year round cold weather it was important too. I look for something effective that does not have an overpowering scent

  24. Aimee Fauci says

    Oh my goodness.. I love Dove! I love the fresh spring smells that it offers. For a while I was cheap and was using my husband’s deodorant and he said. ..Hey, why don’t you start smelling like a girl?’ and tossed me some Dove.. hee hee.. true story.

  25. Amber Nelson says

    I do like Dove. I like deodorant that doesn’t leave that icky residue and that doesn’t cause breakouts.

  26. Babita@BabsProjects says

    I love all Dove products. I have bought this deodorant especially for my older one. It works really well for her.

  27. I love Dove products! They never irritate my sensitive skin & leaves me feeling moisturized. I love the scents used for their deodorant.

  28. I always use Dove products. Thanks for sharing the information on this project!

  29. Meagan Bailiff says

    i always buy “clinical strength” deodorant, it just works best for me. Dove is really nice, i buy it when i have a coupon haha.

  30. mail4rosey says

    Loving the Dove campaigns. I haven’t gone sleeveless yet this year, guess it’s time to go shopping for a cute new top before summer is up and gone. 🙂

  31. Can Dove just stop already? They have won the best campaign award EVER!

  32. Christina G. says

    I love Dove deodorant. I’ve been using it for years. Thanks for sharing!

  33. Dove deodorant is the only brand I use currently. It’s the only one that’s worked for me!

  34. I’ve never really taken the challenge but I actually use Dove deodorant and it does work. I hate those underarms stains and I’ve noticed that Dove doesn’t leave “much” on your clothing.
