AMW Reviews: DEONAT Mineral Deodorant Powder

For today's review, we have to thank Mr. AMW for sharing his insight on this product as he's more of a deodorant/anti-perspirant user as compared to me as he perspire 10x more than I do!  He has been using this for months! 

That shows, he loves the product, he's stubborn, he won't use it the 2nd or 3rd time if the first dry was disastrous!

Let me break it down for you on how the product fairs.  If you've got the "pits" you gotta read!  :P

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Cute, simple white packaging easy to find at the dresser.
  • No drying time.  You can wear your clothes IMMEDIATELY after application.
  • Effective in odor eliminating!  (not that Mr. AMW has bad odor *defensive mode*) :P
  • Best PRO : No darkening of the underarm.
  • Has a nice cool/minty feel perfect during the summer..
  • Very inexpensive, lasts approximately 2-3 months of daily usage.
  • Can be shared!  As there's no direct contact against the person's skin.
Cons
  • Messy as compared to other deodorant.
  • May irritate people who have sensitive nose or have allergies to certain ingredients.
  • Not the best on anti-perspirant department. (this is applicable for people who sweat A LOT!)
Overall
Putting Mr. AMW to test this product is like putting this product in a laboratory!  *laughs*  Mr. AMW is VERY particular with deodorant/anti-perspirant as he has been searching for a good one for years!  He has used various brands which smells "oh-so-wonderful" but darkened his skin! 

I have tried putting on this product and so far, I don't have complaints on the perspiration side as I do not perspire a lot!

Tips
  • Avoid inhalation during application, but avoid to hold your breathe too long as you may pass out! :P
  • Sprinkle a good amount of powder onto the palm of your hands and apply on your clean underarms after bathing.
  • Make sure your underarms are dry during application.
  • Do not apply on broken skin.
  • If itchiness or skin irritations occur, stop product usage IMMEDIATELY.
  • If you wear dark clothing, the powder may stick to it so be careful.
  • When you take a shower, do not scrub your underarms hard as that's one cause of skin darkening.  Gently wash off product with a soft wash cloth instead.
  • If you perspire a lot, you can choose to use this on days you won't be doing a lot of activities (like inside the office) and use a different anti-perspirant/deodorant brand on other days.  This way, your underarm gets to breathe.
Will I repurchase?
Mr. AMW did!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who does not have much problem on perspiration but is looking for odor control.  Also good for people who suffer from darkening of underarms as this product has less chemicals.

Where to purchase and how much?
Exclusively available at Watsons and Beauty by SM Department Store for Php129.75 (approx $3.00).

Have you tried deodorant/anti-perspirant in powder form?
What's your best best?


Keep smilin'
Stay happy

  5. this is my first comment on your blog...yay!

    thanks for the very helpful reviews of different products.

    i've tried so many deos and anti perspirant in the market. but as of the moment, MILCU is the longest product that i'm using. it's in powder form. and my brother sometimes sprinkles it to his feet before he wears his socks. (it's both foot & UA powder).
    what's great about this product is the
    price--40-60php.

    maybe i'll try Deonat when i'm finished with my milcu.

  8. Naghahanap ako ng reviews about deonat at nakita ko to :)

    Sa pagkakaalam ko, kaya medyo hindi siya pangpabawas ng pagpapawis kasi walang aluminum salts and parabens tulad ng karamihan ng deo na tinitinda. Yung aluminum ang nakakapagbawas ng pagpapawis at nakakaitim ng UA.

    tapos yung milcu, hindi ko naman irecommend yun kahit mura. nakakaitim ng UA yan..

    ayun lang :)

  10. I bought the stick of which you'll wet it with water and it a very WONDERFUL product.AS IN. because in my previous many deodorants,pag mag sweat ka na,parang ang baho.hindi B.O pero ung sweat plus ung fragrance ng deodorant?!I hate it! alam nyo hwag kayong pumili ng may fragrance kasi BOOM!parang bomba ang chemistry nila.sa Department ng antiperspirant,well,i perspire sa diameter ng kili kili ko.indi naman umabot hanggang bewang.pero nung gumamit ako ng deonat, nabawasan ng 2/3!!!By the way im using the yellow one.Wala xang claim na antiperspirant pero na exceed nya expectations ko!at wala na ung B.O.may sweat but it smells sweat na normal like u can inhale it again and again.prang pawis na odorless!!I'm glad i took the risk.and what im praying for right now na sana after few months puputi ang kili2x ko. :)
