Agree or not, our first impression depends on the way we look or dress. But when in proximity, it is also about how we smell. Thus giving a boost to the ‘you have to smell good’ industry. My head turns dizzy by the variety that’s available in the market. Perfumes, deodorants, with gas, no gas, deodorants which are like perfumes but not perfumes, underarm whitening Deos and what not!
I never really liked using Deo much as they tend to sting the skin and also they blend so perfectly with your sweat odor to give out that amazing Deo mixed sweaty smell awful enough to make your own nose shout out ‘HAD ENOUGH!’. Though all might not be functioning the same manner, just saying (Deo users don’t kill me). I am pretty much of a Rock-n-roll type of person so I would just use roll-ons. Rock n roll….roll-ons… Get it? get it? No? OKAY.
Anyway, so today I am going to review the roll-on I am currently using- the Nivea Anti-Perspirant Pearl & Beauty.

How to use
Just roll it 3-4 times on your underarm skin directly. It is wet on application but dries after some time.
The main high-lighted ingredient is pearl extracts. i.e it contains hydrolyzed pearls. Other than that, aluminum chloralhydrate, PPG-15 stearyl ether, Parsea Gratis-sima oil, trisodium EDTA, geraniol and Benzyl alcohol are some of the other ingredients.
Suitable for all skin types.
It regenerates skin cells leaving you smooth and beautiful underarms. Hence giving you the confidence to raise your arms. It is mild, alcohol-free and colorant-free.
My Experience/Take on Nivea Pearl and Beauty Antiperspirant Roll On
As it is an antiperspirant, it is supposed to block sweat, which it does, but not completely. No bragging please, it works only up to 5-6hrs approximately. I think it would vary for different individuals as some people perspire more than others. The smell is really nice and flowery. It reminds me of the ponds talcum powders. It is mild as it claims. Men won’t use it for sure. Though it feels a bit sticky and wet just after applications, it dries out with time. The shape of the bottle is interesting. The width of the cylinder is a bit smaller at the back of the bottle. May be it is done for an easy grip. Also, the See-through glass helps me to check how much is remaining and when to buy the next bottle. What I really liked about the product is that it makes my underarms go from flowery smell to little or no smell for the day. No awful sweaty odor even when I am sweating a bit. It is good for regular use. However, it doesn’t give you beautiful underarms. They stay as it is. Also, it is not exactly alcohol-free. You can see that in the ingredients section. Boo to that claim.

Would I recommend?
Yes, it’s a nice product overall but people who sweat a lot might want to use something else as it has just mild effects.
