AMW Reviews: Ban Clear Gel

There are only 2 types of deodorants/antiperspirants I've used --- Roll-On and the Stick.
Last year, I was sent a clear gel type of deodorant/antiperspirant which perks up my interest and I've given it a test on various situations and environment!

Ban Clear Gel says ---
Band Clear Gel provides all-day odor and wetness protection in two great scents for active women:

Cool Sport - with a hint of citrus that's great for athletic gals who are always on the  move.
Powder Fresh - a soft, gentle fragrance for those who want to flaunt a subtle girl-y charm.

AMW says ---
  • Very cute and unique packaging, you can see it at once in your dresser!
  • Has expiration date printed visibly.
  • Has a protective "seal of freshness" upon purchase.
  • Gel does not feel sticky or heavy.

  • Dries up quickly once applied.
  • Does not stain clothing.
  • Works really well even under stressful situation, no wetness or perspiration.
  • No allergic reactions.
  • Pleasant scent, does not sting the nose.
  • My underarm feels dry until the end of the day!
  • Does not darken underarm as compared to other brands.

  • The gel-type takes a bit of time to get used to.
  • There are times I over twist and a lot of product came out which is a bit of product wastage as I cannot twist the product back to its packaging!
  • A bit bulky to tote around during travel as compared to solid/stick deodorants!
Not bad, but whoever is reading this post must keep in mind that I do not perspire heavily!  I can actually  brisk walk for a good 30 minutes and still look fresh!  This product may work different to men or to those who perspire heavily.  Mr. AMW bought himself one to give this a test as well and he said this product is alright, nothing spectacular but not a bad product at all!

It's actually a good experience to try a different type of antiperspirant/deodorant. But if you let me choose, I am still a stick deodorant/antiperspirant user!  Personal choice!

  • Do not apply on irritated skin or skin with open wound.
  • Try to control the twist as you may have a lot of product wastage each time you twist!  
  • After application, leave it for a couple of minutes before you start to dress up to prevent staining your clothes.
  • Always store in cool, dry place.
  • Do not share deodrant/anti-perspirant with other people, treat this as a toothbrush!
Will I repurchase?
Not this one, I'll probably try the stick version of the brand Ban.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes using deodorant/antiperspirant!  Anyone on the go and wanted to remain fresh and odor free the whole day!

Where to purchase and how much?

Ban deodorants are available in selected department stores, health & beauty stores and supermarkets for Php230.00 (approx $5.25).  For US readers, available at Walgreens, etc..

A closer look on Ban Clear Gel, 
on how big the packaging is against my hands

So, spill the beans, are you a ---
Roll-on rocker?
Stick gal?
or Gel baby-yo?

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

  1. The packaging is really cute and I don't really perspire that much too lol. However my bf sweats like crazy haha...but he only uses gel because he has an allergic reaction to stick O_o

  2. Oh wow I didn't know PR sends deodorant to try and review. That's so cool!

    You should get the Tokidoki brushes... hehe~ ;)

  3. Great review!! I'm a tawas girl!! hahahah! :P

    Btw, thanks for the bday greetings Nikki!! :D

  4. I used perspire a lot and when I'm not careful, my pits will start to smell. I've tried this before. It's definitely awesome in the deodorant and anti-perspirant department. What discouraged me was that it made my underarms darker! I'm just so glad I'm not a pit monster anymore. :)

  5. where I could buy this product? please be specific.
