The Internet says Mitchum is the Best Deodorant

Even if you are neither handsome nor beautiful, as long as you don't smell like a dog, nobody would feel the need to be distant from you. Sometimes, a spray of perfume adds charm to everyone, especially when EDTs are used since their scent lasts longer. However, what would you do if your body is prone to sweat and oh-so-awful bad odor?

This is where deodorants come in handy. Thank goodness they were invented, because tawas (alum) wouldn't really solve this problem. I am not saying that tawas is ineffective, it is just that it doesn't have the staying power people need. Moreover, it is messy to apply.

Nowadays, there are tons of deodorants that you could choose from to the point that it is already quite confusing when it comes to knowing which one truly works. As for me, I have the urgency to patronize this product, because my pits sweat excessively. There are some products that annoyingly made my UA reek, while other brands made my pits all wet. My extreme desire to end this dilemma pushed me to do an extensive research over the web. I stumbled upon the deodorant called Mitchum. Many say that this deodorant is one of the most effective, so I gave it a try.


Mitchum Roll on Powder Fresh for Women

Ingredients: AQUA, DI-PPG-2 MYRETH-10 ADIPATE, LAURETH-23, GLYCERYL STEARATE, MAGNESIUM ALUMINUM SILICATE, LAURETH-4, POLYSORBATE 20, LAURIC ACID, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BEHENTRIMONIUM METHOLSULFATE, EDTA, XYLITOL, PARFUM (FRAGRANCE), UNALOOL, BUTYLPHENYMETHYL PROPIONAL


Choices: Unscented and Powdered

I bought the powdered scent. I always prefer either vanilla or powdered scents when it comes to the products that I buy, because I feel like it is more natural and not overpowering. I felt different when I first applied this deodorant, because it was like having a sticker on my UA. Well, this is probably because I am accustomed to using deo sprays and deo-sticks.

After using it, I left the house to run some errands. I was out all day to meet my clients around the city. With the humid weather and all the roaming I did, I testify that Mitchum does not disappoint. It kept its promise to keep my UA dry and fresh all day. I also observed after few weeks that the yellow stain on my white tees is not that visible anymore. Furthermore, my pits were not darkened.

I've been using it for almost five months, and I have nothing to complain about. However, I also found out through my research that sweaty pits can adapt to the ingredients of the current product you are using for your UA. In other words. once your underarms get used to the deodorant you are using, it will go back to being sweaty. If that happens, my initial solution would be to keep switching Mitchum with another product. I just can't let this good product go.

You can buy this from Watsons for P99.50. Unfortunately, the roll-on variant is the only one available here in the Philippines. It is a product by Revlon which explains why it is a little pricier than other roll-ons.

  8. This looks like the perfect deo for women and it's ok for being a bit pricey as I'm sure it would compensate on quality.

  9. Tawas suppresses the wetting of UA. The dryness which tawas lasts (I don't know if it's for the day) more than a day unless you clean it up and apply another one. I don't think tawas is messy. It only darkens the UA or arm pit.

    1. Oh, that's why... tawas need to reapply to achieve its effectiveness. I remember when I was young my mother let me used tawas and the grains were scattered to the floor. The next thing I know, my sole are full of tawas hahahah!
