NIVEA Whitening Smooth Skin Roll On Review
( Author ~ Sanchita)
I hope that everyone is in the pink of health. Of lately, I have been hooked on to the roll on deodorants and bought a couple of them online. One of them is the Whitening Smooth Skin Roll On from Nivea. I have been using few skin whitening deodorants to prevent any discolorations of underarms. When it comes to deodorants, I have always had a blind faith on Dove and Nivea as I find their aromas very appealing and enticing. And, ever since I stumbled upon this particular product, there has been no turning back.
Read on to know my view on the product in question.
PRICE – 175 INR for 50 ml
The Nivea Whitening Smooth Skin Roll On is packaged in a thick glass bottle with a cylindrical outlook and a dome-shaped opaque screw cap. There is a translucent roller ball attached to the mouth of the bottle for application. Now, I have heard from a bunch of people that they find the roller ball a bit unhygienic for application and would rather prefer a spray on deodorant otherwise. In my case, I find them extremely great to use and easy to apply without much effort at all. All you need to make sure is you don’t share this product with someone and trust me you are good to go. For travelling purposes, I always find myself reach out to this rather than the spray on deodorants as it is light weight and smaller is size. Although the glass packaging concerns me a little and would have preferred tin or plastic in that case. Overall, the packaging is satisfying.
The color of the product resembles a closeness to a translucent viscous one with a very light texture. It reminds of me kind of a serum consistency. When you apply on the skin, it causes no irritation or burning sensation unlike some of the spray deodorants I have come across. Having a super sensitive skin, I always look out for products without alcohol as it cause irritation. Upon application, the texture feels slippery, non-greasy and non-sticky as well. The only unpleasant thing is that if you happen to apply extra, it takes a while to get dry or you can simply blend in to make it dry sooner.
Coming to the most important part of the deodorant – the smell. It is a very sweet fragrance precisely. There is a hint of soothing floral aroma involved with the blend of artificial scent which is not overpoweringly bothering nor subdued at all. Hence, the elegant balance of musky track is surely the well-defined in this deodorant. The fragrance also has a delicate note to it which is why I feel it is the exact kind of whiff I would want for a first date or special occasion. There is also a mark freshness and feminine touch to it. So overall, the fragrance is surely the one you will love.
The ingredients involves Licorice extracts and Witch Hazel. Licorice is a potent ingredient for skin lightening. It is also known to reduce the symptoms of itching, swelling, and redness. Licorice can help to diminish the presence of age spots and dark areas of hyperpigmentation for underarms, hands, etc. It contains an active compound called “glabridin,” which constrains the enzyme that causes skin to blacken in response to sun exposure. Additionally, it also has “licochalcone,” which helps control oil production. The Witch Hazel is natural source of Vitamin C – an ingredient commonly used to lighten sun and age spots and even out skin tone. Therefore, the combination is excellent for a whitening roll on deodorant.
Coming to the staying power of the deodorant, it fares good but nothing extra ordinary. It stays for around 5hours maximum and something around 4hours during summer when there is excessive heat and humidity and I tend to sweat profusely. I generously apply it in my underarms, the inner wrists, the base of the throat, behind ear lobes and the inner elbows and to be clear, I have never experienced darkening. I generally use razors for underarms and even then it doesn’t feel any irritating sensation. The product claims to be dermatologically approved and would soon sensitive skin. For the price, it is a great budget friendly product.
OVERALL – The Nivea Whitening Smooth Skin Roll On has a sweet floral aroma with feminine accents, enriched with the goodness of Licorice extracts and Witch Hazel to prevent skin darkening and a rather long lasting fragrance with a non-irritating texture.
WHAT I LIKED
- Small and compact packaging.
- Non sticky or non-greasy texture.
- Consistency is of a serum.
- Easy to apply.
- It has sweet floral aroma with feminine accents.
- Ingredients involves Licorice extracts and Witch Hazel for skin lightening and skin enhancing.
- Staying power is around 4 hours or more.
- Worth the price tag.
WHAT I DISLIKED

RECOMMENDATION – This roll on is surely a good choice for sensitive skin who wants to experience a sweet floral fragrance as a deodorant which some really good skin enhancing feature like prevention of darken and pigmented underarms. However, the long lasting feature is slightly missing and hence, I would recommend this for casual purposes.
