My Top Tip for London Underground Users… (Compressed Deodorants)

I don’t need to tell you about how deodorants work or their effectiveness.  We each have our own favourite brand for whatever reason.

But for those of you that buy those ‘old fashioned’ big deodorant sprays it’s time you joined in with the modern era and make sure your next purchase is a compressed deodorant.  Don’t you know big is so passé darling!


Compressed deodorants provide the same amount of protection and longevity as the big sprays, but because less gas is used in each spray the large spray cans are no longer needed.  And because of the smaller packaging it’s more environmentally friendly as well (the compressed sprays use 50% less gas and 25% less aluminium).

I was sent two cans of compressed Vaseline deodorant to test, and I’m no where near having used up even one of the cans (I don’t think I’m even near to having used a 1/4 of it and I’ve had it for a while!).  And with the smaller size I find the cans perfect for slipping into my handbag.  I don’t ever want to be that person on the tube that doesn’t smell great after a day in London… personally every person that works in the city and uses the tube should make sure they carry a compressed deodorant can- it’s all about being a friendly neighbour after all :)

The brands you can buy in compressed can form for both men and women are Vaseline, Sure and Dove.  Lynx can also be bought in compressed form for men as well.
