☆REVIEW☆ Nivea Extra Whitening Pore-Minimizer Roll-On Anti-Antiperspirant

This is one of my absolute favorite daily use products which happens to be of general East-Asian origin– and one which I don’t believe we put nearly enough thought into, or due credit towards ones which are deserving: Deodorant!

Though I’m sure I’m far from the first to write one, I don’t know if I can recall ever having read a deodorant review before. As I was reflecting on what to write about today, though, it occurred to me that I had yet to apply my antiperspirant for the day– and when I remembered that the little bugger is from Taiwan, I realized I should seize the opportunity to bring this lesser-discussed topic of beauty and self-care to the table!

Now, I first bought this product as an impulse purchase because it was available for dirt cheap on sasa.com as I was assembling a haul on there, and I also happened to be in search of a deodorant– any deodorant– that wasn’t the sort of chalky stick that I’d been using since I was 11 or 12. After an incident at work in which one exploded in my backpack– covering everything I loved and regularly used in goopy chunks that then reeked of Dove Cucumber Mint for months– I was hell-bent on swearing off any kind of deodorant that could explode in such a horrific manner.

that amount of emptiness reflects months and months of regular use~

So I decided it couldn’t hurt to try this: a cheap roll on, by a brand name I knew and trusted, with some rather outrageous claims (whitening? pore minimizing?? who looks at pit pores?) that I didn’t care as to whether they actually delivered or not– I was just hoping for a stable, trustworthy antiperspirant.

Let’s see if it delivered, huh?
