Garnier Mineral 48 Hours

19 Reviews

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.’

I didn’t like it and I really wanted it to work for me because my friends were raving about it. The scent was too light to have any impact. Like the reviews I read, I too, am not a sweater but I could smell the ‘potential’ of ‘armpit sweat’.

not the best in the west

Great smelling but does not last, when I have a very busy day at work I always ending up smelling like sweat.

Not so great


It smells nice and fresh. But after a few hours I can smell my armpits. I’m not a sweater, but I can smell ’em.

I have been using the same product for years and I have decided to change to Garnier and I am so dissapointed. The roll on does not even last a hour and then my armpits are smelly. I have been buying all the Garnier skinproducts for myself and my teenage sons. The skinproducts are very good, but I will definetely not buy the roll on again.



I can not use one brand for to long. But I’ve been using this for a few months now and it’s still working.

Decents pits


It had me discreetly sniffing my pits for the first half of the day, just enjoying the fresh scent. As soon as I started running around and glowing (because girls do not sweat, we glow), the effectiveness wore out. Boo on you, false promising Garnier.
