Once a Week Weekly Deodorant Review

So. You might be wondering... why the heck am I writing about deodorant. Nothing special really. Except that I always think that sharing is caring. :D So today, just so happen I've finished my assignments and I have some free time, I figure I should be a lil caring :P

I've have had BO problems ever since I was in secondary school. It's pathetic really. I've tried using Nivea deodorant for women for, I think, one to two years maybe? It didn't really work. In fact it's because of it, I often find stains on my shirts and of course there's some side effects to the armpits. What the heck. So because it was ineffective, I finally stopped using the Nivea deodorant (despite using it for about one to two years) and used lemon instead. LOL. I scrubbed lemon onto my armpits every day when I bathe.. until one day I realized I did it wrong. I should have only use this method when it's sun down. Darn. :( Anyway, it wasn't effective either. 

Until, I think was it last year, that my problems were solved.

The REAL Deodorant.
Without a trace, zero-stickiness, 100% water-soluble, 100% alcohol-free, 100% aluminium-free, stain-free, colorless, fragrance-free.

I was introduced to Once a Week deodorant by a friend. I was skeptical at first. I was already very fed up with my BO at that time and I was like spamming perfumes all over whenever I go out. So anyway, I didn't want to purchase it first. So my friend told me that there was a person on LYN (lowyat.net) selling this deodorant and he was giving out samples for free. Eh free leh! No harm what. And so my friend requested the sample on behalf of me and it was sent to my home.

Fast forward, I totally forgot about it until the sachet arrived at my house and then I was like. Eh.. apa ni? Then I remembered.

Didn't know what to do, I flipped the sachet around and found the directions on how to use it. Inside it, it's something like a ply of wet tissue but you can smell a lil like acidic smell (not very strong).

Directions: Targeted skin area dry and clean, wipe thoroughly and evenly.
Dispose wipe and rinse hands with water after application.
Allow to dry completely before dressing.

Application ambience: In-door, away from sunlight.

Pretty simple instructions. I followed the directions, applied it after I bathe during the evening (no sun already). Behind the sachet, there's also a list of cautions and the list of ingredients used: Water, Propylene Glycol, Lactic Acid, Glycerol, Potassium Sulfite, Lactobacilli Extract

So anyway, the verdict - deodorant lasted for four days. But it was pretty good actually. For that four days, I could sweat like normal but there was no apparent foul smell or intolerable odour. 

Determined to used it as a temporary solution at least, I asked my mum to get it. I found out that it could be obtained from Guardian stores. Bought two packs in the beginning to continue my trial to see if it really works for one week, as claimed by the name itself. 

Sealed packaging. Make sure you buy the ones that are sealed too!

One pack usually costs RM8.90 with 3 disposable wipes inside. 

At the back of the pack, you can find the directions for use again. Slightly different from the one on the sachet though.

Directions for use: Used only as directed: 1 wipe (sachet) for 1 application to efficiently produce weekly protection* (*results vary individually). Application ambience: In-door and avoid of any sunlight. Application: Use damp towel to clean odorous skin area. Then, targeted skin area must be cool and DRY before gently rubbing on. Application must be THOROUGH over targeted skin area to be effective. Dispose used wipe and rinse hands throughly with water after each application. LET COOL AND COMPLETELY DRY (approx. 3 to 5 mins) BEFORE DRESSING. BEST used after sundown.

So the additional information here is "BEST used after sundown". Important point to take note. 

So after using a few sachets, I deduced that it really worked. Maximum of seven days (that makes one week!) and minimum of five days for me now. To have the best results, the application must be right and thorough. And also keep in mind to allow completely dry before dressing.

Often, the deodorant will go out of stock. So I'll get a few packs when I restock. Also will get a few packs at once cause Guardian has discount for it sometimes like RM8 per pack instead of RM8.90. I saw it from Once a Week deodorant website that you can also get the deodorant from Caring Pharmacy, Be Pharmacy and Farmasi Vitacare (though I've never sourced it from there before). Alternatively, you can also get it online from Genkioutlet (link).

So far so good people. Been using for at least more than one year now, and it's gooooood. Seriously, I know this is not a cheap deodorant but it works! Thus, I think it's worth to get. So, if you have a BO problem. Don't worry kay? Try this out, it might just work for you like it did for me :)

P/S: Just in case you didn't know, this is not a paid advertorial or anything.
