When I got to purchase a Dry Idea Powder Fresh Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant for free, I just couldn’t resist it. I actually paid 99 cents for it and received that amount back in a cash register coupon. I can’t remember whether it was Walgreeen’s drugstore or C.V.S., as they both have amazing deals.
The deodorant doesn’t look exciting or glitzy, just a plain white bottle, with a different shape than other deodorants. The bottom is wide, then it narrows at the front and back, but stays the same width at the sides. This is for easy holding, with no chance of dropping the bottle. It has a really large cap at the top to allow the ‘ball’ of the roll on deodorant to have room.
It has the words, ‘New Look! Best formula ever’, on the front of the cap. Then on the front of the bottle, ‘Dry Idea. Powder Fresh Anti-Perspirant & Deodorant’. The size is 2.5 fluid ounces (73.9 ml).
I haven’t used a roll on deodorant in years so was excited about using this one. I unscrewed the cap and saw the opaque ball at the top of the bottle. I held the bottle with my right hand, and it fitted perfectly into the weird shape of the bottle. I then moved the ball area over the underneath of my armpits. I then did the same with my left hand. I immediately could smell the ‘powder fresh’ fragrance, which was very pleasing. It always reminds me of freshly bathed babies.
I checked under my arms a few minutes later and I felt wet there. The tips of my fingers were wet, but within a few seconds of them touching the area, my fingers were totally dry, and had a silky feeling to them. I left the deodorant for 15 minutes and felt under my arms again, and I still had a little wetness there. Again the tips of my fingers dried to a soft silkiness. My under arm area did indeed dry, and felt silky soft.
On their website it states:
“This formula puts ‘dry’ into Dry Idea. It contains no water for a drier application, and it is time released for longer lasting protection and fragrance.”
Living in Florida, my deodorant has to stand up to 90 degree weather, and my exercise regine. I put the Dry Idea on first thing in the morning, and stayed dry. Mid afternoon I had my usual swim, and after drying myself off, I applied more deodorant. I do this every day no matter what deodorant I use.
In the evening I went dancing, and even though Len can’t manage all of them, I disco dance, line dance, and cha cha, with friends. I stayed dry all evening, and had no worries about my sweating, and having embarrassing marks.
Dry Idea really worked good for me.
On the back of the bottle it only had ‘Shake Well’ and open here for drug facts. I opened up the label to ‘active ingredient’, and they are aluminum zirconium and pentachlorphydrex gly 16.3%.
It has the normal warnings that all deodorants have. It is made by The Dial Corporation, Scottsdale, AZ 85254. If you have questions or comments you can telephone 1-8–258-DIAL, or check out the website at www.dryidea.com.
This product is a keeper for me. I love the way it feels and the price was even better.
