Clinical Protection, Original Clean
Product works well -- packaging is a failure
The product works really well -- I'm a guy and this is the ONLY deodorant/antiperspirant I've ever found that works well enough for me but doesn't strip the skin off my underarms and make them really chapped and painful.
My problem is with the packaging. It takes forever to get the product to come out of a new bottle. The bottle leaks all over the place, no matter if it's hot or cold or room-temperature -- ruined the MDF board of my medicine cabinet. Now I have to wipe the bottle down with a paper towel every time I use it so that my hands aren't all oily with the stuff the leaks out. And forget putting this in your suitcase -- on a plane, the thing leaks EVERYWHERE and gets an oily mess all over everything.
So, it's a great product but I hope they can figure out how to fix the packaging WITHOUT changing the product.

I love this!!
I love how on a busy day or when I am wearing a thick heavy sweater, I can sometimes catch a whiff of my deodorant. THIS tells me that it is working. I have to admit I tried the Secret version; I never felt as confident wearing it. I went back to Dove an have been happy and confident all day and all night. Thank you for making such a remarkable product.

I wanted a dry roll-on to replace my wet Mitchums anti-perspirant and deoderant. The "dry roll-on" is the only attribute I found that works. First and foremost, this is too strongly scented. All of these should be available in frangrance-free. I don't want to smell deoderant and it may be an issue for people who need frangrance-free for allergies or in their workplace (medical, etc.). Second, I'm not sure it is as effective at stoping the body odor smell. It does seem to keep me relatively dry but I need both dryness and deoderant with no overpower scent. And the applicator tends to get oily - a design flaw in the packaging of the lid that is a little hard to remove.

Disappointing and lacking
I purchased this as a change-up from another clinical deodorant. With summer approaching, its main appeal was for 'smooth underarms'. After a few days of use, i found the product lacking in a few categories. First, after applying as directed, my underarms began smelling shortly into the day and there was wetness, so it seems the product doesn't even work. Second, my underarms did seem smoother but also very dried out, even after washing with deodorant soap and Dove Moisturizing Body Wash.

Love this! My problem is the packaging. Why does it come in the crank up type? For the price, I'm not happy about the amount. Solid would give more!
Love the clinical strength! My problem is the packaging. Why can't it be in a solid, instead of the crank up style? The amount doesn't fit the price. Mine always seem to be about half full.

Literally takes minutes for product to come out of container and then clothes smell anyways...
I bought this product because I love Dove products and I have been unhappy with other brands of antiperspirant. First of all, I hate that all clinical strength products are this oozy cream stuff. Second, after opening it, it took literally MINUTES of turning before enough product comes out to put on. This is day 3, and I am still having to turn it for minutes to apply and I am finding that my underarms are wet within a few hours and my clothes smell like sweat by the end of the day (which is not normal for me). Very disappointed.

I don't sweat- but the product does!
OK, I love this stuff with how it works on me, but let me tell you a little story.. I finally broke down and bought the clinical protection (visible hair? version) when I moved back to Florida. I sweat like a guy, and it was getting ridiculous here. Men's products didn't even work and I was tired of looking like I just ran when I have just arrived! Anyway, with that first purchase I was very happy with the results, no sweat!, no odor, no wet clothes, no stained clothes- perfection! Then this funny thing happened, I kept finding oil marks in random places on my shirts or jeans. I just chalked it up to me being a klutz. Then one day i pulled something out from behind my deodorant to find it wet and oily, ok- maybe something leaked, maybe that's why I had marks on my clothes. No biggie. Then one day I noticed my perfectly clean shirt had an oily mark on it- AFTER i had thoroughly cleaned the medicine cabinet. OK, so- I put my deodorant on after my shirt is on by going under and up, right? Then it hit me- the Dove antiperspirant was SWEATING! And the oily whatever it is, was coming out of the bottom of the container when I turned the dial, dripping on my clothes or pooling in the cabinet. Upon closer inspectton, yep, it was true, it was leakng something. My house isn't hot and neither is my cabinet, so I tossed that one and bought this- the original, hoping it was just a fluke that first time. Nope, about 3 weeks into owning this new one, I found an oily puddle in the cabinet again. So, If I put a paper towel under it and remember to be VERY careful applying and making sure I wipe the deoderant, It won't happen and I can still stay dry. But, this is silly! Am I the only on experiencing this phenomenon? Because, I love this stuff and don't want to switch, but only the dry cleaners have been able to get that oily stain out of my shirts, it's getting pricey, its that, or I have to remember to get undressed to use my antipersperant, which is annoying.

What a mess
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. Also, I find these products to be a really 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.
