I am here to talk to you today about a little fail that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was in the market for another deodorant after I finished my Nivea Double Effects in the violet senses. (empties review for that product here!) The store didn’t have the same one so I grabbed another from the same brand. The one that I grabbed was the Nivea Invisible for Black and White Anti-Perspirant.
(This photo is one from a store because I have since thrown mine away!)
My initial thoughts were this is awesome because I pretty well only wear black and white tops. It seemed like a perfect fit for me.
After I took the product home I used it a few times and noticed it didn’t go on as nicely as the other Nivea deodorant did. That was slightly off putting but it was nothing compared to what was going to happen next.
A few days later I looked down at my desk to see it had wet puddles covering the top. I found that very odd seeing as I had no liquids on the table. I looked around and tried to find the source.
I smelt the liquid and it smelt like deodorant. I picked up everything on the table including my brand new shirt (which was a gift I hadn’t worn yet) to find it soaked in a horrible brown liquid. The deodorant had completely leaked out and stained everything on the table.
So my question is, why was this leaking? It was a solid stick deodorant with no liquid in the product besides the chemicals/fragrance built into the stick. My room was at a normal temperature and it was stored in a dry safe place.
I’m still not sure as to why it leaked, but it did. Since then I have cast aside the Nivea brand for deodorants. I am not willing to risk another disaster.
I hope this has shined some light on this product for you guys. If you have tried it please feel free to leave your experiences in the comments below! Did you have a better one than I did? Did you love it, hate it?
All my love,
