Feel Stubble Free For Longer

Hair Minimising Deoderent from Dove

Spring is here. The weather is warming up so it is time to de-fuzz and deodorise. Luckily Dove [Unilever] has a new product on the shelves. New Dove hair minimising deodorant to prevent little pricks with stubble. I wonder what they'll dream up next? But this is a Godsend for us girls who don't like to be worried by giant cacti whilst we're sunning ourselves on the beach...
A word of caution on the back of the can though : Do not allow this product to come into contact with painted or varnished surfaces... probably best not to get it mixed up with your hairspray either....

Hi Scarlet,

Interesting commercial

It's just as easy for me to borrow Beast's Epilady than to use a cactus in a can.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr U: It seems a can of deodorant is multi-functional these days. It keeps you smelling sweet and it also strips paint...

MJ: Mr Beastie is launching his own line of lingerie soon. We're going to have to wrestle with him for the Epilady...

Could save you girls alot of time on bikini waxes.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Marks: Are you saying that my bush need deodorizing? Goodness me! What are you implying?

I'd love to avoid little pricks with stubble. Where was this when I was being followed around by them at uni?

Jimmy Bastard said...

If I use it on a regular basis will it make me smooth and attractive to the opposite sex?

scarlet-blue said...

Madame D: Soon they will invent a spray that makes everything invisible...

Mr Jimmy: I think you're smooth and attractive enough.. but you could use this as scented paint stripper?

Dave said...

I seem to think it was you making suggestive comments about my cactus last week.

Thank goodness I didn't understand the innuendo.

Jimmy Bastard said...

I'll give it a go, but I doubt whether I can drink more than 3 pints of the stuff.

CyberPete said...

Oh my!

I seem to remember a light self tanning product a few summers ago. You applied it in the morning and during the day as you started sweating the tan started running and messed up the clothes.

God bless unilever

Beats the trained anteater, I suppose...

sarah said...

Can you use it on your face?

xl said...

I don't think I want to spray something with those properties anywhere I would spray deodorant.


Oh Hai MJ!

Lulu LaBonne said...

I'm not keen on stubby pricks either, but that product sounds like overkill - I'm sticking with my cattle prod

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I blame Sarah - she started it, anyhow please don't spray this anywhere near your cactus - it's wilted enough as it is.

Mr Jimmy: NO! Don't drink it... this stuff strips paint, christ knows what it'll do to your throat...

Pete: Self-tan - it doesn't look good on white sheets either and can leave the wrong impression.

Mr Whirly: Do ant-eaters strip paint? Poor things...

Sarah: Look you've got me into trouble with Dave! Anyhow, please don't use this product on your face. Your face doesn't smell does it?

Mr XL: Too right... warnings like this are not to be ignored.

Lulu: Quite right too, and I'm sticking to my masochistic wax - free with every candle...

KAZ said...

A hair minimising deodorant - brilliant.
I'm all for multi tasking.
Do you know of any weight minimising chocolates?

Gorilla Bananas said...

Your tufts, Miss Scarlet, are what I admire most about you. If you let them grow, they won't feel prickly at all.

scarlet-blue said...

Kaz: I wish!!! Chocolate doesn't multitask does it?!

Mr Bananas: Blimey, enough about my tufts!!! Goodness me! My pits are as smooth as an Ostrich egg.

Ponita in Real Life said...

If it strips paint, what on earth will it do to your skin??? Never mind the tufts... I wouldn't want caverns where my pits should be.

scarlet-blue said...

Ponita: Indeed! I was wondering if it worked out cheaper than paint stripper....?

PI said...

I think Jimmy's attraction is that there is nothing smooth about him.
Do you remember when they used to shave you before an op? Those were the worst little pricks.

scarlet-blue said...

Pat: I've only ever had one op, when I was 16... I don't think I needed shaving...
Ack [As Savannah would say] that Jimmy is a smooth talker...

mapstew said...

I could've done with that when I had the vasectomy. The shaving was worse than the op. Nothing worse than a scrotum covered in little bits of toilet-tissue!!

sarah said...

No my face doesn't smell, but I do have a beard...

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Maps: Ouch! That does sound painful...

Sarah: So do I....!

ChrisV82 said...

I'm a big prick with stubble, so I don't have to worry about this product, right?

scarlet-blue said...

Chris: I'm sure you have a lovely prick. And lovely stubble.
