I don't know if anyone else has taken the claims by Unilever et al that their clever compressed deodorants are exactly the same as the full siize, just with less packaging?
Being quite keen on recycling and green issues, I was impressed with their new product claims and bought one. However I felt it ran out quite quickly. Quick internet search gave me no genuine reviews so I decided to run my own experiment!!
I bought 2xdove - one 150ml normal and one compressed mini. I used them on alternate days and made a mark on the can each time. I can now reveal the 150ml lasted lots longer so I dispute their claims:
150ml - 30 uses
75ml - 20 uses.
I would be interested to see if any other users have investigated the 'lasts as long with lesss packaging' claims?
