You know… It can be really embarrassing at times when you have body odour especially from your armpit. Living in such humid country, it is easy to develop unpleasant smell because you sweat so much with air pollutant around as well. Even when you are nervous or angry, you will sweat a lot even in cold environment. You might notice the smell can be unpleasant when your adrenaline runs high compare to just normal sweating.
Anyway, I discovered Rohto Deoball Deoderant 24H from… I don’t remember where even though I’ve known about its existence for a long time! Hahaha… Can’t get it in Malaysia. When I saw it in Taiwan, I didn’t think twice and bought one to try.
I’ve tried various deodorant before and they’re all a disappointment. Either the smell is too strong or leaving stubborn stain on your clothes or it just didn’t work or it smell worst when it mixes with your sweat or it’s messy to use especially in liquid form.
I purchased the one in Bloom Rose scent. It was a gamble as I didn’t know how it smell like. Luckily, I do like it. Very mild and gentle rose scent, not overpowering. The scent will only activate when you sweat. Based on my personal experience, I still sweat in my armpit, still wet but there’s no unpleasant smell at all! I’ve been using it for over 8 months, almost everyday. It did not fail me and I go about more confidently in the Malaysian weather.
I restock when I went to Taiwan mid of this year. Saw it in Japan and was tempted to buy another one but I did not. I think the new one I got should last me until 2020. I figured I might be going to Taiwan or Japan again by then so I will stock it up by then.
It’s cheaper in Japan’s drugstores than Taiwan’s. I can’t remember the actual price though, below RM40 after conversion if not mistaken. It’s indeed more expensive than the usual deodorant in the market but with how well it keeps odour at bay, it’s totally worth it!
One down side will be having your dark colour clothes rubbing on your armpit when you wear them after application. However, it is not stubborn, you just need to rub it off with your hand or dust it away or use a damp towel to wipe it off. Another downside is that it doesn’t keep you dry but I don’t mind, it’s the body odour that is worst.
Overall, I highly recommend it. I don’t think I will look at other deodorant anymore. Hopefully it will be available in Malaysia soon(after so many years, I’ve never came across it in Malaysia… Go figure…).
