Gillette Deodorant Review

Gillette Deodorant Review

In this article we’ll be reviewing the Gillette Cool Wave deodorant.

I spent two weeks using the Gillete’s deodorant. My time with the Cool Wave helped me get a better idea of its long term performance and effectiveness. 

I was also aided by my past experience reviewing deodorants as I knew which factors to consider and which to ignore. 

Overall, Gillette’s Cool Wave roll on is a spectacular deodorant that effectively prevents odor, reduces uncomfortable sweating and has a fresh and sporty scent that lasts all day long. It has a skin friendly formula and a mild texture that does not cause any irritation, even with extended use. It also has stellar antiperspirant qualities. 

In this review, I’ll be taking a closer look at how the Gillette performs, what components make it so effective, and of course whether or not its worth buying as your next deodorant.

Our Verdict

When it comes to Gillette’s deodorant, you get world class odor mitigation that keeps you smelling and feeling fresh, useful antiperspirant qualities that keep you sweat free, a refreshing scent and long lasting protection that comfortably gets you through the day. 

Of all the high performing deodorants I’ve come across, Gillette is one that surprised me most with its efficacy. It is really one of the best I’ve ever used and the fact that it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg is just the cherry on top.

I would highly recommend Gillette for guys looking to switch to a superior everyday deodorant. 

  • Effective odor prevention
  • High performing antiperspirant qualities
  • Long lasting protection 
  • Refreshing, masculine fragrance
  • Smooth texture
  • Non sticky
  • Reduces sweating
  • No irritation 
  • Budget friendly
  • Doesn’t stain clothes
  • Tends to leave a slight residue on skin

Smell and effectiveness

I review deodorants frequently and few deodorants surprise me anymore. Gillette, however, is an exception. It offers some of the best odor prevention I’ve ever experienced in a roll on. Over the two weeks I used it, I did not once have to deal with any body odor or bad smell. 

Pair that outstanding odor mitigation with even more effective antiperspirant qualities, and you’ve got a recipe for success. I am happy to report that this deodorant reduces sweating and keeps you feeling fresh and comfortable. 

As for the scent, it is an upbeat and confident fragrance that suits guys more than it does women. That said, it has a nice cooling effect that I wish more roll ons tried to incorporate into their formulas. 

Lasting power is also worth mentioning. Gillette boasts a 48 hour sweat and odor protection rating, and my testing supports this claim. Only on unusually warm and humid days did I need to apply it a second time.   

Sensitive skin

The texture of this roll on is quite smooth. I did not have to deal with any irritation or redness, and it did not dry out my skin as so many roll ons often do. 

Gillette should be proud for making a non sticky roll on that does not cause any discomfort or stain your clothes. I was a bit disappointed to find that it leaves a bit of residue on the skin, but other than that, I have no complaints. 

Finally, if you have sensitive skin like me, Gillette is specifically formulated to work well with our skin type. That said, it does use aluminium which can block skin pores, which is why Gillette recommends only using this roll on for your underarms.

Value for money

As an everyday deodorant, Gillette roll on offers great value and comes in a large sized stick for easy application and better coverage. 

For the budget conscious, I speak from experience when I say that this deodorant is long lasting for more than just the odor mitigation. The stick should last you a good 2-3 months depending on your usage. 


When it comes to the formulation, Gillette uses specific ingredients that offer awesome performance without being abrasive or harmful for skin. It is not exactly an all natural deodorant, but all of the ingredients are safe for use.

In Conclusion

So to sum up, the Gillette is a fantastic deodorant and super easy for me to recommend to most people, owing to its stellar performance and refreshing scent.
