Deodorant vs. Antiperspirant—Here’s What You Need to Know

Whether you are getting ready for a special occasion or just for your workday, knowing what antiperspirant or deodorant to use can be a gamechanger. Choosing the right product will not only make you feel fresh but also comfortable to tackle any occasion with confidence, knowing that you won’t have to worry about your underarms. 

Dove Expert, Kirti Sharma shares the inside scoop on the difference between a deodorant vs an antiperspirant. 

You may be thinking, is there even a difference between deodorant and antiperspirant? Well, there is and when it comes down to it, it’s not very complicated. 

A deodorant offers two forms of protection against odour. The first reduces the number of bacteria producing odour and the second is a fragrance that masks odour that is produced. An antiperspirant protects you against sweat, blocking your body’s eccrine glands. 

Figuring out which works best for you can be confusing, but it all depends on your individual needs and your day-to-day activities. For people who wish to reduce sweating due to many reasons, discomfort, odour or sweat stains on clothes, Dove offers the Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant available in 7 delicious and fresh scents, which the most popular are Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena and the Dove Original scent. 

It is formulated with Dove’s signature 1⁄4 moisturising cream and caring oil and 0% alcohol to help reduce skin irritation. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers smooth skin and 48 hours of effective protection. It is good to keep in mind that sweat is still being produced, but it won’t be released in areas where antiperspirants have been applied. A good tip to get the most out of your antiperspirant aerosol is to position the product 15cm away from your underarms, press the nozzle and spray for a few seconds. A good tip to get the most out of an antiperspirant is to apply it after the shower, when your skin is fully dry.

If you don’t mind the wetness and just want to mask body odour during the warmer days ahead, you can opt for a deodorant. It won’t stop you from sweating as an antiperspirant will do, but it’ll control odour associated with sweating. Sweat itself doesn’t smell, but when the bacteria on your skin mix with your sweat, it causes an odour and deodorants are formulated to decrease the presence of bacteria that leads to odour. 

The choice is yours, to ensure your preferred product is doing its job, make sure you have an underarm care routine in place, including steps such as cleansing, shaving, and exfoliating.

  1. Thank you so much Beauty and Lace and Dove for the opportunity to review the Dove advanced care anti perspirant.
    First of all, I absolutely loved the pomegranate smell. It kept me feeling fresh, clean and dry no matter how much work I had done. I didn’t get skin peeling or a rash like I do with most other deodorants so I will keep buying this.
    Highly recommend.

  2. I don’t normally buy aerosol deodorants as it reminds me of high school days and a certain aerosol popular with teenage girls. But I was pleasantly delighted with the scent of the Original Dove advanced care anti perspirant. It worked all day including a heavy session at the gym and I left feeling fresh and ready to take on the rest of the day.
    Thank you Beauty and Lace and Dove for the opportunity to try this product, and to change my mind about aerosols! Definitely converted to using them in my daily routine.

  3. I`ve recently had a burning sensation under the arms using a roll-on, so got another brand to find it still stings a bit and have red marks on each side of my armpit. I`m not usually that sensitive to deodorants. So trying this aerosol one was interesting as I don`t use sprays because I usually can`t stand when I spray a tiny bit, it bombards the whole room, especially the Rexona ones.
    I have been using this for a week now and I love that it doesn`t bombard the whole room or take your breath away as it is light and pleasant with a fresh, clean scent that I can still smell throughout the day. I love that it doesn’t irritate me, it works all day, even after gardening and working up a sweat.
    I only have good things to say about Dove as it must be more gentle on the skin because my redness has subsided so it came at the perfect time.
    Thank you Dove and Beauty and Lace for this trial as you have changed my mind about what brand of deodorant is better for me ( and easier), because I don`t have to wait for my armpits to dry 🙂

  4. I received the original scent to try and I love it. The first couple of days it caught me unawares thinking “what’s that fresh clean smell” and realised it was me! When you first apply it there isn’t that cloud that almost chokes you like other brands. This is great for me with a toddler who always wants to be around. I used to have to close the door to the bathroom for a second or run to a different room and turn on fans because I didn’t want her breathing it in. Now I don’t have to worry so much.

  5. This is an impressive antiperspirant deodorant.

    I received the Dove Advanced Care Pomegranate & Lemon Verbena Scent and I really love the smell. It is a fresh, sweet scent that is not too overpowering at all. It felt gentle on my skin and lasted all day.

    Thank you very much Dove and Beauty and Lace for the opportunity to review this product. I highly recommend it.
