When you coupon, brand loyalty goes out the window. You buy what's on sale and with coupons instead of just reaching for the products that you happen to like the best. If you stick to one particular brand, you'll probably need to buy them at full price when you run out and can't find a sale, and there goes your savings.
I've put aside my brand loyalties on toothpaste, laundry detergent, and lots of other products in order to save. But one product I haven't stopped using: Dry Idea deodorant.
It's my favorite, and I don't really want to use another brand. Luckily, I find sales at the drug stores and matching coupons often enough that I haven't had to depend on another brand.
So when I was asked to try the new Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh antiperspirant, I was glad to do so!
I used the Dry Idea antiperspirant first for a day of shopping. Going in from the car, out into the heat (this is South Florida, after all), then into the stores, and then back again. The antiperspirant held up well throughout all these changes.
But that really wasn't a great test, so later that day I went for a 5-mile bike ride. (As I mentioned, I live in South Florida. I love living here!) The day had heated up quite a bit by then. At the end of the ride, I was sweating pretty much everywhere except for my armpits - the antiperspirant worked!
The one down side I found is the new packaging. The Dry Idea AdvancedDry Fresh still holds 3 ounces, but the package is taller and thinner. I'm so used to the smaller, wider package that I had a little getting used to the new size. But that's just me, and I'm sure after a while I will get used to it.
And here's some good news about Dry Idea AdvancedDry: They are holding the Never Let Them See You Sweat Sweepstakes for $1,000 in prizes- a $500 first prize and ten $50 second prizes! Head to the Dry Idea Facebook page, "like" them, and then enter for a chance to win! Click here to enter.
