Why I Made the Switch to Dove Advanced Care

Can you believe it’s already warming up here in Dallas? If you’re in Texas, you know I’m not lying. I was comfortably wearing this crop top when I took these photos, y’all! It’s sleeveless weather and it’s going to be for about six months so go ahead and get ready. For the last two years, I’ve been switching between two different deodorant brands. They weren’t really anything special but I guess they did the trick for the most part. I wasn’t smelly (most of the time) and I didn’t sweat through my shirts. Living in Texas, I counted that as a win.

Unfortunately, the products I were using were VERY hard on my skin. If you’ve read any of my beauty posts before, you probably know I have extremely dry and sensitive skin. I often find that the skin on my underarms gets dry and irritated because the deodorants I was using weren’t providing any kind of moisture! After reading some reviews on Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant, I decided I had to give it a try. Here are two of the reviews that really convinced me:

“Not only did the scent last, the wetness protection did, too. This deodorant also has great moisturizing ability. I honestly think my underarm skin looks healthier after using it!” – Gaylasp
“This deodorant protects all day long. Noticed a difference in the softness of my skin in one use.” – Jasmine 0112

I picked up Dove Advanced Care (in the Cool Essentials scent, which is SO fresh) and y’all, I’m so happy I made the switch! Not only do my underarms feel smoother and more moisturized, but it offered wetness protection too. I work out 4-5 times a week and I live in Texas so of course those are both VERY important to me. Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection plus added skincare benefits with its NutriumMoisture formula and Dove ¼ moisturizers for softer, smoother underarms. Total game changer!

  • Have you ever tried Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant?
  • What did you think?

Y’all I’m going to tell the truth….these last few weeks have been TOUGH. I know a lot of you are probably in the same boat. If you follow me on social media, you’ve seen my thoughts and feelings so I’m not even going to go into them here. Instead, I’m going to make today’s post more productive. It felt weird just writing a “business as usual” post with an outfit or makeup tutorial – but I’m not a political blog (and honestly, I would hate to blog about politics anyway) so I’ve done a lot of time thinking, “How can I contribute to the conversation and be true to who I am, but still provide you guys with helpful content?”

Diversity Chic | Looking Back on 2016

I honestly cannot believe it has been 2 full years since we started the Diversity Chic journey. It has been such a joy showcasing various trends with some of my favorite people. I don’t really know if it has had an effect on anyone outside of our Diversity Chic group, but putting a body positive spin on trends is soooooo important. The world is improving in terms of what is deemed “acceptable” for various body types to wear and I’d like to think we have had the teeniest tiniest part in that. Here’s what Diversity Chic means to us:

Diversity Chic is a collaboration of Dallas bloggers showcasing current fashion trends on a variety of skin tones, hair colors, body types and heights. Each month we will feature a new trend tailored to our personalities and style.

Our focus is to explore the world of fashion in its unique, diverse, and stylish manner – one trend at a time.
