Clinical Protection Anti-Perspirant / Deodorant, Skin Renew
Clear Tone's formula can be Improved
Clear Tone was actually recommended to me by a friend that said it actually helped her with discoloration on her armpits. There are some pros and cons...
It does help some what the darker discoloration under the armpits b/c there are some deodorants that actually make the discoloration worse! (Yikes!)
The scent is simple and pleasant.
The price, it's around 7-8$ for a small stick of Clear Tone.
It leaves a heavy residue that it HARD to scrub off in the shower. And scrubbing your armpits for 10minutes to take it off and then put it on again is not anyone's favorite past time.
It does does go on clear, you will see white marks on your black shirts.
It doesn't last long, in 3-4 hours you will need to re-apply to keep the fresh scent.
The formula can be improved for additional underarm protection and the "clear tone" it markets it self by.
Overall, it's a better product than most but not the best. Average to Good.

I perspired more than if not wearing it.
I'm so disappointed.... I love Dove products and have been using the soap bar for over a decade. I usually use the competition's version of this clinical strength, but I decided to give Dove the chance. Unfortunately I perspired more than if I had not wore any deodorant. I gave it a week, to see if it was just the change of brands, but no luck.

This is a lady's dream for darkness & ....
This really does helps when I have razor burn, but in only three weeks all the darkness under my arms went away, so I tried it on the bikini area for darkness remover & razor burn. It worked just as well also. I'm one happy lady!
Thank you Dove,

It works, but is really hard to use.
Mu friend bought this deodorant and she said it works really well so i bought it to. I can't seem to get it to twist though. Is there something I have to do to get the bottom to turn?

Works just like it says it does!
You couldn't believe how excited I was when I realized Dove made a Clinical Protection + Clear Tone in one!!! I wanted and needed both and I was thrilled to find out they made this 2in1 product! This is great! Finally something that ACTUALLY works for wetness protection! No sweating no matter what!
I just followed the directions on the box which said to put 2 clicks of it on before bed so that it can be absorbed through your skin overnight while you sleep and it blocks the pores and keeps them blocked throughout the whole next day! Meaning no sweating at all the day following the night before when you put this on right before bed.
The only thing that troubles me about that has nothing to do with the product, but just has to do with the system in which to use the product. Because you put it on before bed and it will last and work the whole next day (which it does!) means that it's on you when you take a shower in the morning. Obviously I have to wash my underarms in the shower so I usually just reapply the antiperspirant the next day after my shower.
If you want you can designate this one to be used for putting on before bed and use another one of Dove's great deodorant/antiperspirant products for the morning.
The clinical protection ACTUALLY works for stopping embarrassing sweat from seeping out of your underarms.
The Clear Tone ALSO WORKS very well and in less than a week, I've seen improvement in the darkness of my underarms and the skin feels more nourished!
Finally also, a product that does not leave white marks on your clothes!

cost effectiveness vs effectiveness
I like your clinical strength product. However... 17 revolutions for deodorant to actually appear initially, is a bit much. Amount in container doesn't justify the cost.

doesnt renew skin like it says
I have had problems with deoderant causing dark brown marks and caking under my arms for years. So I am constantly trying new types. Nothing seems to work. I was really excited to see this new Dove product because I really like Dove's other products. But sadly this one is no different from the other clinical strength deoderants. It doesnt make the situation worse, so thats good, but it doesnt clear it up. I find these products to be a bit greasy, and the bottle leaks greasy liquid which makes a mess. this has happend with every bottle of Dove deoderant i have ever bought, not just this type.

I used to have dark spots on my underarms and after using dove cleartone for about a week, they were completely gone! I also work outside and the wetness protection from the clinical protection was fantastic.
