Do Your Armpits Smell?



I have a confession to make… my body odour doesn’t smell like roses all the time and that’s why choosing a good deodorant is important to me.  Nobody wants to smell of body odour and in this warm weather, you need deodorant that is going to protect you all day long.  Nobody wants to smell it’s embarrassing. People keep their distance from you and it’s not pleasant for everyone around you.  The pharmacist, my friend Heba and I have come together once again to review Mitchum roll on and to see if it delivers.


Our bodies need to sweat to cool down otherwise our internal organs would get cooked inside out.  Sweat is odourless, the reason why we smell is when we sweat bacteria that lives on our skin flourish’s in the damp warm folds in our armpits.


Mitchum roll on is anti-perspirant. It works by blocking the pores in the skin for a period of time, so it limits the sweat flow to the skin which helps against excessive sweating and body odour. Mitchum claims to work for up to 48 hours.


Mitchum uses fragrances such as geraniol coumarin, hexyl cinnamal and citronellol to mask unpleasant smells. This deodorant also works as a disinfectant because it has hydrogen peroxide,  which kills odour producing bacteria.


You can use this deodorant after you shave as it doesn’t irritate your skin. Ingredients include aloe vera, lauric acid, glyceryl stearate, cetearyl alcohol and vitamin E which provides softness to sensitive skin.


I’ve been using this deodorant for at least six months and I love it because after a long hit day in the sun, I’m still protected from body odour.  Also if I apply it after I get dressed it doesn’t leave white marks.  Be mindful that it does apply on wet. It doesn’t irritate my skin, it’s a winner for me.


I buy my Mitchum roll on from Woolworths.


So readers, have you tried Mitchum roll on? What’s your favourite deodorant?

Outfits For Spring


Yesterday was the first day of spring. Spring is my favourite season cause its not too cold and not too hot, the perfect balance.  When I think of spring I think of flowers, Melbourne Cup, butterflies, weddings and radiant sunshine.  It’s a busy time on the social calendar with the races, weddings, formals, birthdays (does anybody else have a lot of birthdays coming up?) or for a night out and I’ve found the perfect outfit that will make you stand out from the crowd.

I browsed three stores that I know and love to find these outfits from Myer, Review and Forever New.  Here are the outfits from Myer:


Watercolour Floral Bella Dress by Charlie Brown – $199

If spring was not a season but a dress it would be this dress.  The colours and floral print scream ‘spring’. I know a lot of people who prefer strapless dresses, I love the print and the style of this dress.  The bow is a cute finishing touch and ends just above the knee.  This dress is suitable to wear to the races, school formal or to a wedding.




Stripe Splice Fitted Dress by Jane Lamerton – $159

One of my very first work tops was by Jane Lamerton so, you could say we go way back. I love stripes and geometric shapes which is a trend at the moment so no surprise I love this dress.  The splash of green gives it that spring, calming feel.  You can wear this to a corporate function, christening or for a nice dinner.


Indigo Jumpsuit by Seduce – $239.95

For all the ladies who love jumpsuits this one is for you.  I love navy, I love the detail of this jumpsuit and it’s different from others I have seen before.  It’s sleek, chic and sophisticated.  You could wear this jumpsuit to a corporate function or wedding, literally anywhere as it’s versatile.


Here are my picks from Review.

Rouge Poppy Dress – $289.99

This vintage style dress is definitely one you could wear at the races.  With a beautiful floral pattern and a splash of red, what a great bright colour.  If you want to show off your curves this dress is for you.  You could wear it to just about any event.


Margarita Dress – $289.99

I love the name of this dress.  Yes it’s another navy dress but I couldn’t help myself.  This strapless dress is timeless and feminine with the lace detail and swish skirt.  Any girl going to the formal would look beautiful in this dress but you could wear it to any special event.


Catalina Dress – $279.99

This is the last floral dress I promise but it is spring after all.  Navy and white is such a classic combination and adding the little green detail is just divine. This dress isn’t as formal so you could probably get more wear out of it as you can dress it up or down.


The below dresses are from Forever New – If you hate colour and prefer black the next two dresses are for you.

Phillipa V-neck Lace Swing Dress – $159.99

I’ve added a couple of black dresses because black is a classic, an old favourite for some but essential for any woman’s wardrobe.  I love a v neckline and I can’t go past lace I love it.  It is similar to the Margarita dress but it has a small sleeve.  You have so many options of what colour shoes you can wear with black which makes life just that little bit easier.


Avery Cross Front High-Low Maxi Dress  – $99.99

For those of you who have beautiful long legs (I’m so jealous and I hate you ) this dress is for you.  I like this style of dress.  I like the sheer bottom, the belt that adds some class and gives you a more defined waistline and the v neckline. This dress was made to attend a party and with you in it.


If you purchase any of the above, I would love to see a picture of you wearing it, just tag notsopeachie #notsopeachie.

So readers, do you love spring? Do you have a lot of events on in the next three months? Do you love bright colours and floral print as much as I do?
