On my last trip to Lidl to buy ALL the Christmas Gingerbreads (and avoiding that weird new Britney Spears hair care range), I noticed this little golden deodorant of joy staring back at me as I whooshed past the toiletries section. Obviously I knew of the Cien range in Lidl, as I have sung it's praises many times before. Their price tag and overall quality of products is amazing and I'm still awaiting the day they relaunch the Cien Olive Oil Moisturiser - because that was the best thing I've ever used on my face.
Cien Madame Glamour deodorant is an alcohol free roll on cream formula. I must admit, I've never use a classic roll on deodorant before, and I'm still unsure if I appreciate that initial feeling of wetness to be honest. Because the scent of this was echoing the renowned Lidl Suddenly Madame Glamour perfume though, I thought I'd give it a try. For those of you not familiar with the 'Suddenly Madame Glamour' perfume from Lidl, then it's a scent you kind of need in your life, just for the fact it's £3.99. Every time I wear the perfume people ask me what it is, and it's dubbed to be a dupe of Channel Coco Mademoiselle. I'm not sure the the deodorant version is a new release or something which has been on the shelves for a while, but when in Rome I'll give anything a whirl if it catches my eye,
Although the packaging boasts it's a 48hour antiperspirant, it really isn't. I find my underarms getting a bit damp after a few hours to be honest. But, as I mentioned in this post I probably have some kind of sweat issue anyway. Sorry about that. However, I really do like to wear this to the gym. When at the gym I don't like wearing deodorants that are going to prevent me sweating, as I know I'm going to sweat more than I would on a day to day basis. It doesn't sit right with me to purposely sweat and block my sweat glands, as I'm sure that's damaging somehow(?). When I wear the Cien Madame Glamour roll on deodorant, the scent seems to last for a very long time. I don't come home from the gym smelling of sweat and my top actually smells pretty good a few hours after too! On a daily basis I'm still reaching for the Sure Maximum Protection Deodorant. But this is a great little back up deodorant to throw in your bag for times when you need a delicious smelling top up. The fact it costs only 79p is also a massive brucey bonus.
