“Rexona is excited to announce the launch of Rexona Invisible Dry – an improved aerosol formula with superior yellow stain protection that outperforms any Black & White antiperspirants. Rexona Invisible Dry is designed to help whites stay white and blacks stay black so New Zealand women don’t need to sweat the small stuff.” The only thing that should be invisible about women, is the deodorant on her clothes.
I had a look in my wardrobe…. OK, my floor, and I couldn’t find anything I wanted to wear. Shorts? No. Pants? Too hot. Dress – perfect! I always feel good in this dress, it makes me feel confident and feminine. It’s REALLY ANNOYING when I find white stains on my black dresses and feel stink about it. (get it?) Rexona Invisible Dry just saved my life, basically… Us women can’t be beaten by these things, we have things to do, people to see! I’m glad Rexona are backing women up.
But I gotta admit – I stopped using spray deodorant because I wouldn’t use it properly; meaning I’d irritate my skin, so I resorted to using roll on. I thought roll on was the best thing – it’s easy and you don’t have to worry about it irritating your skin; but there is one problem with it – it soaks up into my T-shirts and leaves a smelly wet mark, so it doesn’t really work as well as sprays.
I managed to use Rexona’s Invisible Dry spray PROPERLY, without burning myself. I actually listened to the package… for once… and it says hold 15cm away. Yeah, I’m so uncoordinated that I’m scared I’ll probably spray into my eyes, but this time, I was successful. It smells OK. It’s not fowl or gives you those annoying headaches. It doesn’t make you go ‘oh god that smells nice’ but it’s not bad, either.
I had a stressful day ahead. Firstly, I was tired from the long weekend full of sunshine, a birthday, recovery from the birthday, and I had a singing lesson, had to pick up a parcel and go back home, 30 minutes away, to have a music lesson. I’m a very nervous person, especially around new people, so I nervous-sweat. When you know you smell, you sweat even more because it’s embarrassing. It was an especially hot day, 22 degrees and raining, and I thought it was going to go bad but it was fine with this spray. I hardly smell – YAY! It says it gives a 48h protection so I just gave my armpits a whiff and they are close to perfect. I do smell a little like floral fragrance and corn chips, but it’s not as bad as I’m used to. I get it BAD. But hey, I wore a black dress today, all day, and no white marks! I do have a sweat mark because I don’t think I put on enough.
So, exams are coming up, and I’d love to give some tips on how to survive the stress and prevent sweating:
DON’T STRESS – Yeah, easier said than done, but there’s no point stressing about something you can’t change. If you’re about to head into the exam, just remember – you’ve done all that you can do, and you’ve just got to do your best. Don’t worry about what others are doing and stop thinking that people are going to get higher marks than you, because chances are, if you stress in the exam, you’re not going to get down what you want to.
BREATHE – This may sound really stupid, but it’s not – I do personal training, and when I’m on the rowing machine, boxing, or anything like that, I’m focusing too much on the task and forgetting to breathe. It’s so important to remember to breathe in and breathe out longer. You need to breathe from your diaphragm – the muscle under your ribcage. You’re not supposed to breathe from your chest – that causes hyperventilation, which I used to get very badly, and had to be taught how to breathe normally again, like babies. So breathe slowly, take a breathe in, and a long breathe out. If you’re stressing out at home, go and do something else from what you’re doing and take your mind off it. Do nothing for two minutes – literally do nothing. Just sit there and stare endlessly at something. It will calm you down and clear your mind.
DRINK WATER – If you’re stressing, you’re going to get hot and then that’s going to make you sweaty. Drink lots of water – not during you’re actually exams, though, because you will need to pee really bad, but during your exam study times, drink heaps. You will feel more energised and cool. Trust me, I drink 3 litres of water and I feel so good. I used to drink hardly anything and I’d get so sweaty, get really bad headaches and you’re not going to learn very well with a dehydrated brain/body. So please, drink water.
BE NICE TO YOURSELF – It’s hard, I know, but you’ve got to remember you’re a human being and you can’t please everyone. If you get worked up about something, you are going to breathe abnormally, get stressed and get sweaty. You don’t want that.
Women lead such active lifestyles, and we want to feel good while doing it, right? Feeling awful and sweaty is something that we just don’t need so I can strongly recommend Women Rexona Invisible Dry Diamond. “Don’t let anything get in the way when you want to dress to impress. Rexona won’t let you down.” – You said it! If I want to feel confident, I’m going to put on that dress, spray on that deodorant, and get on with my day.
This product protects you from: Sweat marks, white marks, yellow stains, 48h long lasting freshness, crisp floral fragrance, alcohol free and dermatologically tested, doesn’t sting even after shaving. I can tick a few of these off, most definitely.
Overall, I give it an 8 out of 10. I say this, because I don’t think it’s a miracle, but it works. Oh, and I like the shape and how it fits perfectly into my hand. No more dropping it!!! Visit Rexona on their website here and on Facebook here
