Summer time smelly! Deodorant Reviews, Deo Sherbet Bar and 8×4 Roll On Review

Smelly situations occur anywhere, anytime. I was recently in London on a tube and was amazed by the amount of stinky pits around me.  I was in the post office and a duo extremely, extremely stinky walked in and stunk the whole place out.  I was on a tram a very stinky person sat near by – it was a horrific smell, like rotting meat.

And all I could do was hold my breath!

But I’m pretty sure every one is guilty of forgetting to put deodorant on sometimes.  But in the summer I always carry some with me just in case it gets really hot and sweaty.

Here are two of my recent purchases:


Deo Sherbert Bar 8 x 4 Roll on deodorant

Both of these deodorants are from Japan! I bought Ishizawa Lab Deo Shebert Deodorant Bar just because it looked cute – this is a stick deodorant.  I bought another roll on from a very popular Kao range 8×4 to try too…

The 8X4 range seems to have spray, roll on, mini spray versions of the same scents.  I like how they have full size and mini roll ons (the mini is a great handbag size, I have the standard one).

This yellow one I believe is Citrus.  I have smelt it quite a few times and it’s just quite fresh, to me.

The 8×4 is a very liquid texture but it doesn’t run or anything.  It is supposed to kill the bacteria that causes BO (and I really think it does – it doesn’t just mask the smell).  It is also supposed to care for the skin and I am SURE I can smell the faintest twinge of alcohol? But then again it doesn’t sting so..I’m not sure!

Ishizawa Lab Deo Shebert Deodorant Bar is a soft bar type product. It works quite well but is a little bit tough to use in that it needs quite a few strokes to get on the skin.

Deodorane 8 x 4 Roll On Deo Sherbet Bar

I am not a fan of spray deodorants. Unfortunately, they make my arm pits itch and irritated which is why I prefer roll on and bar deodorants.

So, do you have a deodorant preference?

    I prefer solid stick deodorants though I haven’t found one that doesn’t cause my underarms to go all white flakey and awkward.
    Sprays simply mask the scent in a very annoying way and roll on’s take forever to dry!

      Hi Ashley

      Actually you know the Body Shop one is a really good stick deodorant. The one in blue smells amazing!

    Hmm..just the sound of sherbet sounds like a winner for me. I don’t like sprays or roll-ons (also, because they take too long to dry). I’ve tried powders (Lush), and was thinking of doing a crystal. Lately, I’ve been super anti anti-perspirant. I think that my underarms look much nicer when I don’t use one, and also was thinking that maybe all that stuff is meant to just come out.

    As of late, I like Lavanila’s line :)

      Hi Fantastic

      I used a crystal it was good BUTTTT I don’t think it helped in super sweaty conditions. At the same time, I HATE putting lots of products on my underarm I don’t think it’s natural at all so I’m trying to find a mid-ground!
