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.

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