Here are some easy tips from dermatologists that’ll prevent your pits from becoming totally offensive when it’s a zillion degrees outside, courtesy of Andrea Lavinthal for Cosmopolitan:
1. Wash your underarm area with a benzoyl peroxide face cleaner. It’ll kill odor-causing bacteria, says Los Angeles derm Ava Shamban.
2. Wipe down the entire area with cotton pads that have been soaked in a toner like Olay Refreshing Toner. The alcohol evaporates immediately, so you feel cooler, plus it minimizes any unpleasant aroma, says Dr. Shamban.
3. Brew a superstrong batch of black tea, but instead of drinking it, pour it over a washcloth, let it cool, and then place the compress under each arm for five minutes. Do this every night for two weeks and the tannic acid in the tea will permanently reduce your sweat production, says Darrell S. Rigel, MD, clinical professor of dermatology at NYU Medical Center.

Here are some recent reviews on the product:
Just enough exfoliant, just enough moisture. My skin really started glowing within a week of using it, and it still does. I really like this product and intend to continue using it.
This product is great. I am 39 years old with normal skin, so this is wonderful for me. I use it twice a day and follow it up with Dove’s Fresh Radiance eye cream. On more combination days I use a toner or night cream as needed, but these two products are my staples, and I’d recommend them to anyone with my type of skin.
Another amazing product from Dove. It doesn’t clog pores, but leaves your skin bright for a bright fresh morning start. It smells so great. Highly recommend this to anyone.
Has a very nice feel. Small scrubbing bits, but not too rough. I tend to have sensitive skin this product dose not bother me. I like it and will buy it again!
