Dove Ultimate go fresh Ultimate Clear Antiperspirant & Deodorant Cucumber & Green Tea Review

About a month ago I first picked up Dove’s Ultimate go fresh Ultimate Clear Antiperspirant & Deodorant in Cucumber & Green Tea scent. I’m not sure what prompted me to pick that scent, as I’m not particularly into cucumber or green tea.

The Website Claims:
Stays on skin and not on clothes
24 hour protection
A crisp, nature-inspired scent of cucumber and green tea that draws you in, making you feel fresh and clean

The Ingredients are:
Active Ingredients: Aluminum Zirconium Tetrachlorohydrex Gly (14.8%) (Anti-Perspirant)
Inactive Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Stearyl Alcohol, C12 15 Alkyl Benzoate, PPG 14 Butyl Ether, Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethicone, Polyethylene, Fragrance (Parfum) (Parfum), Steareth 100, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (Sunflower)

$4.99 for 2.6 oz

As I mentioned, I’m not a fan of cucumber or green tea scents. However, I LOVE this scent and I love this deodorant. It’s a faint scent that doesn’t overpower anything else on me.

Does it live up to its claims?
It doesn’t come off on my clothes. I feel like it gives me all day protection, which is great. I hate being at work, sitting at my desk all day and then suddenly feeling like I’m stinky because my deodorant doesn’t work and it’s not like I’ve been running a marathon. I don’t have that problem with this deodorant. It works well with my body chemistry. I love it.

Would I purchase again?
Yes. I love it. I love the scent. I love how it works with my body chemistry. I’m really pleased with it and I will purchase it again.

Product was purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

      I’ve been wanting to try this in the nectarine & white ginger scent as I have the body wash and really love the way it smells.

      I actually have all the body washes that match the deo scents. They are all nice! Soooo I should probably try the deos that go with them. :-)

      Thanks for the review!

        Aww how are the body washes?

      This is what I use, I love it. I have the body spray too because they were giving away samples of it in my mall a while back and I ended up with two. They were pretty much throwing them at people. It’s very clean and fresh, which is what a scented deodorant should smell like I suppose haha

      • Phyrra

        Yes, I think it’s a great scent.

      I would totally buy this based off this review if the fact that it is called “ultimate” twice in the product name didn’t irk me just a tad. I’m weird like that though.

      • Phyrra

        Yeah I don’t know why the official name has Ultimate twice. But that’s what I verified online :/

      Good to know the scent isn’t overpowering…I’m not a cucumber-green tea fan either. It’s funny how some scents or antiperspirants don’t do well with our body chemistry.

      • Phyrra

        It’s awesome because it’s so light.

      You’re right! :) It’s a nice deodorant! I like the body wash from the same range as well ;)


      • Phyrra

        Oooh another vote for the body wash ;)

      I’ve been using this for a long time (over a year?) and although I wasn’t keen on smelling like a cuke, the scent is fine. The local wholesale club sells it in a 3 pack for a great price.

      It worked great for me up til recently – perhaps my body chemistry has changed? – but it’s started leaving white marks on my clothes :( I just switched to Degree Ultra Clear.

        I do have to change deodorant ever so often because I feel like one stops working. I know what you mean. I’ve been happy that this one hasn’t left any white on my shirts.

      This is the brand (and scent) I buy when I can’t get my hands on handmade deodorants- I buy handmade deodorants on Etsy because they’re aluminum-free, which you just can’t get in the stores anymore, sadly. The nectarine one is also quite nice. Love it!

      • Phyrra

        Aww! I’ve tried some of the aluminum free ones and it’s just too hot, or I sweat too much, without aluminum :(
