Garnier Mineral 48 Hours
Availability: selected department stores and pharmacies
The Garnier Mineral range is the first 48-hours anti-perspirant deodorant enriched with mineralite, an ultra-absorbing mineral form of volcanic origin. It provides 48 hours ultimate protection even under extreme conditions.
What we say:
‘This product promises to “visibly even”. But seeing as I have no interest in the appearance of my armpits and have not yet tried applying it to my cellulite thighs, I checked out the other promise, of 48-hour protection. Yup, no showering for two days. Granted it’s the end of winter and I don’t exercise at all, thank goodness it worked, no sweat to report. Let me reiterate, 48 hours, that is a long time.
‘Now why are the strange green crystals pictured on the bottle the “new” selling point of this specific product? Garnier is a brand primarily associated with skincare, which partly explains them touting this deodorant’s “mineralite” content. I have never in my life looked at someone’s underarms and thought, “Oh my word, she soooo has to do something about that pigmentation”. I think this random crystal is a wasted gimmick, but as long as the research expenditure doesn’t affect the price I will keep buying it.
‘The deodorant prevents sweat and has a slight “clean” smell that works with whatever other perfume I’m wearing, so it’s a great roll-on. But if I want even skin tone I’ll get skin cream – maybe even from Garnier.’
