Review: Nu Skin Scion Whitening Deodorant

Do you still remember your first deodorant? I honestly can't recall which one between Rexona and Secret. My mom says I should stick with just one brand of deodorant to avoid dark underarms, I think so too but that is after I find a product or brand I can trust.

 The last brand I have used so far is from Nu Skin. Have you ever heard of the brand Nu Skin? They are the company who offers Scion Whitening Deodorant which promises whitening result after 3 weeks.



Description:
An underarm whitening roll-on deodorant and anti-perspirant that provides 24-hour protection against bacterial growth and perspiration which can cause body odor. Whitening results can be seen in just 3 weeks! Alcohol-free makes it mild and non-irritating. It comes in two variants. 24-Hour Protection to keep you fresh all day, perfect for the active lifestyle and pH-Balanced, especially formulated for women. 

Product Claims:
Aids in preventing discoloration of the under-arm area
All-day Antiperspirant protection
Glides on easily
Alcohol-free formula is gentle and non-irritating


Nu Skin Scion Whitening Deodorant is available in two different labels:
Baby blue - more focus against odor and wetness. (also good for Men)
Flesh - pH balanced especially for Woman also best for those who have chicken skin.

Obviously I chose Flesh. Scion Deodorant has a roll-on type packaging like majority of the deodorants in the market today. As for the scent, I can't describe it exactly, it's fresh but not something special or worth noting for. It keeps my underarm dry the whole day.
Key Ingredients:
Triclosan – helps kill odor and infection causing germs
Lactic Acid – pH acidulent
Vitamini E – renowned for its moisturizing and antioxidant properties 

Demineralized Water, Aluminium Chlorohydrate, Isopropyl Myristate, Cyclomethicone, Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate, Lactic Acid, Licorice Extract, Bearberry Extract, Methylparaben, Triclosan, Allantoin, Propylparaben 
It has parabens, I know that a lot of girls take this into consideration.
I have used this product for about 2 and a half months and I am afraid there is no visible changes. I don't have dark underarms but I want to notice any slight whitening effect which is the main reason why I bought the product in the first place.

PROS
  • It keeps me feeling fresh all day

CONS
  • Doesn't whiten
  • Product not readily available
  • Quite expensive for a deodorant

Where to buy?
 Nu Skin sellers or online sellers in sulit and facebook

How much?
Around P250 for 75ml (can't remember the exact price, sorry)1

Overall:
It does it's job as a deodorant but it's a thumbs down in terms of whitening. It didn't keep up into it's promise to whiten as early as 3 weeks which is kinda sad. I know a lot of drugstore brands who offers the same promise of whitening in as little as 2 weeks but without the heavy price tag.
Will I buy again?
It is good as a deodorant but it's not a smart buy. I won't buy again.
I am thinking of trying out mineral deodorants which is said to be safer than other deodorants in the market today. How about you lovelies, what brand are you using right now?

Thank you for dropping by my blog! See you in my next post! CN Blue is coooomiiiiiiiiiiing!~
