Leaves a white residue

I sweat quite a bit and I've been searching for a deo that I can use during summer. I decided to purchase this when it was on special. It works for sure. Keeps me dry and non-stinky BUT Dove Women Antiperspirant Deodorant Stick Original (40g) leaves a white residue in my pits and I can't get over it. I'll need to throw this coz I can't keep checking for white residue

This deodorant is a good product and can be found just about everywhere. It really does leave you feeling fresh throughout the day and is nice to wear. It does not have a strong smell about it and it does not leave any residue on clothing. The deodorant is pretty affordable and I like the fact you can get it in so many forms.
A nice mild deodorant that comes in a variety of forms. Gives good protection throughout the day and is readily available at most supermarkets. I like the Dove products as they are mild to use and good for those with sensitive skin.
There is nothing.

Suddenly itching from this

I've been using this for years and suddenly, in the last couple of months, it has started causing itchiness to the point that I had to throw it out. Has the company changed the formula or something? Anyway, I'm so disappointed because I used to love this but am now on the hunt for a replacement. Show details

Headache inducing

I bought the original scent and within an hour scrubbed it off due to a headache from the smell. I expected the original scent to be more neutral and less perfumie. I was wrong. I'd rather smell like sweat. Show details

Doesn’t last 4 hrs

Promises 48hrs but doesn’t last for me. Never had this problem with other deodorants. It does moisturise but I need a deodorant that works. Not for me. I prefer Norsca. Show details
Ease of Application

Deodorant is ok, but most of it is wasted because of the container design

The deodorant leaks out into the lid so most of it is wasted. Poor design and a waste of money. I like the deodorant and usually use this brand, but the last two I have bought leak into the lid, you don't have the option of standing it up the other way or hanging it either. Show details

Save Our Animals

I am not a miserable, lonely person that sits on the sofa writing bad reviews to boost my self - esteem. I AM a person that cares about animals. Animals are innocent, beautiful creatures that are being severely injured or even murdered due to toxic chemicals. Dove is one of the companies that partake in animal experimentation. Please stop testing on our innocent animals. Thank You.

summer must-have

I love this anti-perspirant so much, this deodorant is powerful enough to keep my sweat at bay especially during tough summer days. I put about two to three wipes & I smell just fine.

used this on tough summer days

this deodorant is a must have on summer days, it's dry so it doesn't add to the grease that summer brings. my armpits are soft and importantly, the anti-perspirant factor last for long. Show details

Average deodorant

Smells so strong, even 3/4 through the day all I can smell is Dove. My problem with this is that it is so strong. I like that the dry stick means it's dry straight away and you don't need to wait for the wetness of a roll-on to dry. Feels moisturising.
Goes on 'dry'

Questions & Answers


Never used a stick deodorant so how many swipes is sufficient?


One way to find out! Every body is different. Try 3 or 4 and see what works for you.


Which supermarket can I purchase this in Australia??


I bought one last week in my local Woolworths supermarket, so I presume they are readily available in most supermarkets.


how to apply Dove Original Deodorant Cream?


it is a regular roll-on deodorant. For me the advantage is that it stands with the tip downwards so I don't have to tilt it and wait for the ball to get covered in the cream before I use it. So I like the design of the packaging, that's all.


Made with its renowned one quarter moisturising cream formulation, the Dove Original Deodorant is made to be gentle, and is alos designed to give you two full days (48 hours) of antiperspirant protection.

Points of Praise

  • Dove Original Deodorant does an effective job of keeping body odour away, even on hot days. As one reviewer stated, she never had smelly pits, and many reviewers shared a similar observation.
  • The fragrance was widely considered pleasant-smelling by reviewers. While most considered it a ‘gentle’ scent, a few people found it strong.
  • Mild on skin, reviewers appreciated the addition of moisturising cream to the ingredients list, and that the experience of the deodorant feeling soft and smooth on their skin.
  • This Dove deodorant is dry when applied, which was appreciated by those who don’t want to worry about wet armpits caused by their deodorant not drying in time.
  • Available in an aerosol can (250mL or 169mL) or in a roll-on bottle (50 mL).

Points to Consider

  • This deodorant sometimes leaves a white residue on clothing, which can be a nuisance, especially on dark clothing.
  • The opaque bottle for the roll-on means that you can’t see how much product is left. This means your deodorant may run out unexpectedly, without you realising it’s reaching the end - potentially leaving you high and dry.
