First things first, we are a part of the Influenster network now wherein we get sent stuff to test out, review and give feedback on all the time. The stuff is usually free and we get to keep it, but our opinions are totally unbiased and objective (with a hint of the reviewer’s subjectivity put in).
Now that its clear, moving onto the good stuff. Last month Influenster sent us a Voxbox with Speed Stick gear. The Deo sticks from Speed Stick claim a dry period of 48 hours prominently on its packaging and we decided to give it a go. But first I needed to devise and experiment to really test out these bad boys.
8am Friday Morning, 0 hours in :
I was slacking on my Gym activities, and this was the perfect excuse to shed atleast a few extra calories I had been put on recently (few being an understatement there). So I called up my partner in crime and asked him if he would want to go and play badminton at the sports club and he agreed, so after the shower I applied the Speed Stick Gear Clean Peak and started the clock.
6 hours in : The plan was to play for 2 hours in the afternoon, singles for 2 hours is no joke by the way. At the end of the session I was all wet from the sweat. I decided to do a rain check on the deo, as advertised my underarms were almost dry and I could smell the deo and not my sweat there. After the session I went onto work from home, spent a few hours at the home-office.
12 hours in : At night, went to a restaurant for dinner, wore a white shirt mind you , no sweaty ugly stains till night and still a fairly decent smell of the deo stick. This was going well.
25 hours in : Saturday morning 9am : I was contemplating whether to continue the test or take a shower. Did another quick raincheck, although there was no sweat smell, the deo smell was almost gone, so I decided to end the testing here and take a shower anyway.
For us the deo lasted 24 hours in extreme stress testing conditions, to me its better than the current old spice I use and I loved both the fragrances sent to me : Clean Peak and Fresh Force. I would recommend these to active folks looking to trying out a new deo which lasts more than a day.
I will do a complete 48 hour check for a normal active day at the office and report in those findings too.
