I haven't posted in a long time.. but...

I don't know how many of you know about Influenster, but it's pretty great, Basically, you connect all of your social media accounts to it. You do some activities on the website, and every once in a while, they will send you a pre-qualifying survey for a VoxBox. What's a VoxBox? It's FREE STUFF. The catch? You have to review the products, and help promote them among your social media accounts. And that's why I am posting about Influenster now.. because I received the Influenster #TryDry VoxBox, and now it's time for a review.
In my #TryDry VoxBox, I received Dove Nourished Beauty 48 hour Dry Spray.
Now, I have been using Secret Invisible Solid for YEARS. It has been my HG deo. I never liked sprays. I felt like I had to walk around with my arms out forever waiting for it to dry. Isn't the point of an anti-persperant to AVOID wet pits? Yeah... gross feeling. I had my doubts this spray was actually "dry spray" I figured it might dry faster than I was used to but I was sure I would get icky wet pit feeling at least at first. I was wrong. It totally lived up to it's name. It never, ever felt wet to me.
Another feature of antiperspirant/deodorant that I am pretty picky is scent. I checked out the Dry Spray on the Dove Website and yes, it does come in other scents. However, this one is surprisingly nice. Fresh and nuetral, not the baby powder scent I love, but still pretty nice. This one is sort of a light powdery floral. I don't usually like floral, but it reminds me a bit of Awapuhi, which is such a fresh clean floral that it almost not floral. Another win for Dove Dry Spray.
As for how proformance... it's pretty outstanding. It does live up to it's 48 hours claim (providing you aren't getting too sweaty during that time). It also left my pits feeling soft and mosturized, and did not sting freshly shaved skin. What?! Yep, you heard me (or read me... whatever)! It really did not sting.
The last thing that has sold me on this is that with my previous deo, sometimes (especially in summer) it could sometimes feel a little heavy or gunky. You definitely knew it was there. It really was invisible, but you could still FEEL it. Not so with the spray. It really feels like nothing at all.
The only con, but kind of a big one... is the aerosol can. Yeah, I know, it wouldn't be dry spray any other way. But I feel guilty every time I spray it.
So the big question for me I guess is, are all the pros enough to outweigh the con? I am undecided on that at the moment, honestly!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
