Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant Review & Giveaway

Everyone who entered gets the coupons! Congratulations - this is now closed.
I was recently sent the new deodorant from Dove called Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth. They sent me the Wild Rose scent and because I don't really like the smell of rose fragrances I never bothered opening it until 2 weeks ago. Well, when I finally broke down and opened it I found they sent me a bunch of coupons for $2.00 off and thought I should at least review the product.

Before I tell you what I found let me first explain something about me. I don't know if it is genetics or just my horrible luck, but I am a very hairy person. I have to get my face done at least every other week. I have to shave my legs everyday and even though I shave under my arms daily, I still have a terrible stubble (or 5 o'clock under arm shadow).

With that being said...

The smell of rose fragrances always smell artificial and strong to me. Dove did a great job at capturing a true rose scent. I actually liked it. The protection was great too, but to be honest I don't really sweat much even under intense circumstances. Dove was as good as any other deodorant I have used.

However, there is something that sets Dove above anything I have ever tried. After a week I noticed that shaving my under arms was a breeze. I didn't have to go at every angle, three or four times over again. I also noticed that the hair under my arms was becoming less course and that I couldn't see the stubble after shaving. Have you ever felt a babies skin? Well, that is exactly how my underarms felt - silky and soft.

My confession? I had no idea it was the Dove. I never bothered reading the material that came along with the sample and it wasn't until I was visiting another person's blog that I realized that this deodorant was designed to make the hair feel and look less noticeable. I was pretty impressed.

Now, I want you to try it. I have 10 coupons for 10 blog followers. Each coupon has $2 off for you and $2 off for a friend. What do you need to do?

GIVEAWAY: In order to win the $4 in coupons all you have to do is follow my blog and leave a comment with your email address telling me you follow.

It is not mandatory to TWEET this, but since I'm on vacation I would be appreciative if you would.

Open to US residents only and winners will be drawn from Closes 5/30 at 11:59pm EST.

OMG! I so wanna' try this product!  But, I'm so cheap that I won't splurge too much on deodorant -- I get what I can with a coupon or the generic.
So, when you said COUPON?  $2.00 toward the product?  I thought, "That means it fits my budget!"
