Sometimes you have to bite the bullet and go for something stronger than your usual flimsy body spray or roll-on.
This past long weekend has been glorious - temperatures have tipped 28 degrees and we're pleased to report we remained dry! How? Well we gave Mitchum a go.
Mitchum anti-perspirant and deodorant comes in up to four fragrances: Powder fresh, shower fresh, waterlily and unperfumed. It has Aloe and Vitamin E and offers 48hr protection from wetness.
It comes in Aerosol, roll on and stick. Here's what we thought:

"First of all I'd advise you open a window before you spray. The fumes are awful. I thought I'd asphyxiated by fiancé the amount he spluttered when I first applied this stuff. It doesn't smell pretty but it is super dry. I still got a bit clammy but nothing like I normally would cycling and sitting in the sun all day. Showering the next day, my underarms still felt dry as if they were sucking up any moisture. Good result but I hated the fumes."

"I'm more of a roll on girl but actually I loved the stick format. I like the way it doesn't make my armpits feel wet like roll ons do. I felt confident in putting my clothes straight on rather than waiting until by deodorant had dried. The Mitchum stick lasted all day, all night and the next morning I was still feeling pretty odourless and dry. I'd never go a day without a shower but if I absolutely had to then I could have with this stuff on. I think I'm converted!"
