Would you pay $24 dollars for a deodorant? Sounds crazy, huh? What if it derived from a popular designer fragrance line? Still not biting, I see... Well, before you call in the "white coats" to come and retrieve me, hear me out for a second. I have a decadent dose of "smell good" that I want to share with you. A little on the northern side of pricey, it's Donna Karan's Cashmere Mist Deodorant and I think it's totally awesome.
Just as flirty and just as delightful as all the other offerings bearing the fragrance's moniker, Cashmere Mist Deodorant is a solid anti-perspirant imbued with the same soft, powdery scent that's inherent to the line. But don't let the pretty smell fool you; it also packs an effective punch in fighting off wetness and odor with the help of corn starch, vitamin E as well as other ingredients.
I've been rocking this anti/deo for awhile and it has never failed me. I love the way it smells and truly appreciate its lasting power (as well as everyone around me, I'm sure!). It is a solid, so sometimes I rub it in so that I don't get a lot of the underarm cakiness solids are notorious for. But other than that... no issues.
Now, I have noticed that it has gone up in price and nearly fainted from sticker shock (it used to be $17!). Price increase aside, if you're looking for an upgrade from the regular, run-of-the-mill, drugstore variety, enjoy the smell of soft scents and don't mind indulging every now and again then I think Cashmere Mist Deodorant is definitely a splurge-worthy item you should check out for yourself.
Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant is available at Sephora as well as Beauty.com, and retails for $24/1.7 oz.
