I signed up to take part in Dove's Visibly Smooth Challenge.
To be honest, I wasn't familiar with the product because I rarely watch TV in real time, so I typically fast forward through all the commercials. But when I heard that it was supposed to gradually decrease the look and feel of hair over time, I wanted to see if it were true - especially since it boasted that 99% of women who had tried the product said that they would recommend it to a friend.
I'm about 10 days into the challenge (results start showing after approximately 4 weeks) and here are my thoughts so far:
- the products weren't entirely clear - after looking on the Dove website, I discovered that the 2 different products I received (the Anti-Perspirant Deodorant and the Clinical Protection) both help reduce the appearance of hair. Being unfamiliar with the product, I didn't know this.
- the Clinical Protection instructions say that the product is most effective during the night. However, I've been finding it difficult to remember to apply it before bed consistently.
- I received the Wild Rose scent rather than the Nature Fresh. I hate floral scents. I especially hate the smell of rose products - I find them to be chemically, and this is no different. I typically use citrus or mild scented deodorant because I can be quite sensitive. Luckily, this scent hasn't given me any headaches, but after 10 days, I'm getting used to it and no longer feel paranoid that every can smell me when I walk by. I actually asked my boyfriend is he could smell me because it was so strong for me.
I hope that I begin to see results soon so that I can provide you all with a status update!
