Degree Dry Spray Deodorant Review
Influenster and Unilever sent me some samples of the new Degree Dry Spray antiperspirant and deodorant line to review. The first is the Degree Men’s Adventure scent for me and the second was the Degree Women’s Fresh Energy variety which my wife so kindly tried and gave me feedback. First let’s take a look at the product information and then I’ll go over how well they performed.
Degree’s Dry Spray antiperspirant is designed to go on instantly dry for a clean feel and to avoid transferring residue to your clothing. Another innovation is Degree’s Motionsense technology. Microcapsules incorporated into the deodorant release an extra burst of fragrance as you move. This goes towards their claim of 48 hour odor and wetness protection. This is an improvement over traditional deodorants which fade over time. Both men’s and women’s lines of Dry Spray are available in five distinct scents to give consumers variety.
So, how did it stack up? I normally use a gel antiperspirant so the spray was something new for me. The spray required only a few very quick bursts for even coverage. This is where we both have my one complaint; despite going on efficiently a lot of product seems to hang in the air for a long time. I found I had to move to the other side of the bathroom to apply the spray so as not to breathe it in. Compared to the gel, it was hardly noticeable after applying and stayed that way throughout the day. There was also no skin irritation. The Degree performed at least as well as the gel i usually use and had noticeably less transfer to my shirt when sweating. I can’t comment on it lasting for 48 hours since I shower ever day, but it did still seem to be effective at the end of a normal day. I’m eager to take it for a real test in hot weather to see how well it holds up.
The Degree Spray cans are designed well. The men’s version has a twist lock which is clearly marked on the front and operates easily. The compact can and locking mechanism are great for travelers like myself. With the gel glide on products I need to stuff a tissue into the cap or it will end up all over the inside of the lid; nice to be able to avoid that hassle and mess. I plan on packing Degree Dry Spray in my suitcase next time I head out.
Overall we had a favorable experience with the Degree Dry Spray. The pros were how clean it felt and stayed off of clothing, performance as both an antiperspirant and deodorant, and great packaging. The only downside was the deodorant fog after application, which hung around longer than other types of sprays.
