AMW Reviews: Nivea Extra Whitening 24h Anti-Perspirant

Good morning gorgeous men and women!  How's your sleep?  I'm quite excited for the Chinese New Year as my brother will be coming back home to visit for a week! 

Having a pretty face is nothing with body odor!  We should all know by now how important hygiene is and when we talk about hygiene, it pays to take care of our "pits".

I may have tried various deodorant or anti-perspirant but there's one brand that Mr. AMW keeps going back to --- Yes, he complains how this is difficult to purchase and I would accompany him to look for this and stock up.

When Nivea sent me this for review, Mr. AMW said: "Yay!  That's mine!" and I said: "Sorry honey, no but I will review this!  The more you love it, the more I'm intrigued with my competition" *winks*  That's so low of me to think of a deodorant as a competition!  But who cares?  I'm just a girl who gets competitive!  *laughs*

Nivea Extra Whitening Anti-Perspirant says ---

  • Whitening Bioactive Complex lightens underarms
  • Licorice Extracts to support the skin's natural repair process for white and smooth underams
  • Witch Hazel to effectively minimize underarm pores enlarged by frequent shaving and plucking
  • Without alcohol, color, or preservatives
  • Skin tolerance dermatologically proven
Formulated with Licorice extracts and Witch Hazel, NIVEA Extra Whitening Stick helps to lightens dark underarms and has 2X Pore Minimizing power to effectively minimize enlarged underarm pores for visibly smoother and fairer underarms. With Nivea's expertise in skin care and special formulation, NIVEA Deodorant Extra Whitening Stick lets you remain active and wear whatever you desire with total confidence. An innovative combination of Nivea's trusted mild care and reliable antiperspirant protection that lasts all day long. Alcohol-free Dermatologically approved for skin compatibility


AMW says ---
  • Printed manufacturing date which makes it easier to check on product's freshness.
  • Comes with a protective cap.
  • No drying time.  You can wear your clothes immediately.
  • Smells great.  You can still smell its scent at the end of the day.
  • Though this is tagged as anti-perspirant, it also help prevent the existence of bad odor. 
  • Works for both Mr. AMW and myself.
  • Inexpensive for something that works!
  • Lasts longer than spray or roll on.
  • I don't have sensitivity to deodorant or anti-perspirant, Mr. AMW does!  And he told me this is one of the few anti-perspirant that does not darken his underarm.
  • If you are not careful, this can stain dark colored clothing.
Can't tell if the product can whiten both our underarms but what we've noticed is the fact that this does not darken our underarm and it works on both anti-perspirant and deodorant department!  

  • If you are not comfortable with stick anti-perspirant, you can choose between the roll-on or the spray!
  • Do not apply with broken skin.
  • If signs of allergic reactions occurs, stop usage immediately!
  • After plucking or shaving, try not to apply any deodorant or anti-perspirant as it may cause allergic reactions.
  • Always store in cool, dry place!
Will I repurchase?
Mr. AMW finished 3-4 of these. I'm currently on my first and liking it, so yes!

To whom do I recommend this to?
Girls and even boys!  Everyone can use this!

Where to purchase and how much?
 At leading supermarket for Php155.00 (approx $3.60).

Most of us may have tried various deodorants and anti-perspirant!  Can you tell me which brand you always go back to? 

Have a wonderful day!
Keep smilin'
Stay happy!


  1. I am not a deodorant person but I do use one if I know when I need to be out and sweaty all day ;) my dad is a faithful deodorant user, but i can't remember what's the brand he uses - it's a silver bottle, could be gatsby (do they have?) or nivea men. the main reason that i dont use deo is because i find most of them waxy and sort of stick to underarm, need to rub really hard during shower to get it off

    1. Hmm silver bottle, hmm..sounds like AXe but we could be wrong! Thank goodness I don't have the waxy feel on this! But it does vary per person! If you don't sweat much, you can get away without one :D

    2. i wear deo even at home... and for awhile it darkened my underarm... i like high endurance for its scent but the sticky mess it does with underarm clothing puts me off... for no apparent reason i purchased nivea silver for men... been using it for a week and i was amazed how it lightened the skin instantly... i was wondering if there were some bleach in it or something... it also doesn't have any scent if any it's very mild which i like... you don't smell "deo"...

  2. i usually use rexona, had been using it since day 1, and changed a few other brands but i still stick to it~ tried garnier but the drying time is too long and the scent too strong. i think i used nivea before but never really took note about it. time to change back eh? :P

    @Xin: i hear you! i thought I was the only weird one who thought using sticks on the pits is hard to get off, now I know the truth :P

    1. Rexona works for me too but I heard it doesn't to others! Ahhh the joy of looking for the best deo for yourself..just like makeup :)

  3. yay!i use this!:)
    i tried using other brands but i keep getting back to nivea..haha!
    i also love the tvc of this!;)

    1. Wow, so you like the brand too! Thanks for your feedback!

  4. I tried this out but it leaves white residue. Why is that?

    1. Have you tried applying only a few ? Try to swipe around 2-3 times .

    2. yes, I did that too but it still leaves white residue.

  5. Does the white residue bothers you a lot? if yes, then better switch brand.

  6. I have used nivea for 22 years and to even try Made from Earth was a challenge for me but after using their Vitamin C Moisturizer - i am very happy with the results from the last 6 months! I can see a difference in the lines around my eyes, and just my skin looks and feels fresher over all. Everyone is telling me how healthy I look - Love it!

  7. Hey I've been wondering if a guy can use this too. 'Cause my underarms darkened because of using Nivea for Men deodorants, which my Mom said to Me that Me and My sister are sensitive to stuff. And I also find that the Nivea for Men deodorants gets itchy, sticky, causes darker underams on Me. So can you suggest this product to Me? Even though I'm a guy...


I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment your questions, suggestions and just anything you may want to say! Keep smiling and stay happy!
