Sure Maximum Challenge RESULTS!

I’m back with the results of my Sure Maximum Protection Challenge. You can read my first post about this here. So this week I’ve been testing the deodorant out in hot, nerve-wracking and awkward situations to see if it can really keep me cool and protected all day long.

Firstly, I want to tell you a little about the actual product and how to use it. The Sure Maximum Protection Deodorants work best when you apply them before going to bed. When I read this I was a little unsure but I can tell you know that you do get the best results when applying at night. When your body is sleeping, your temperature is at its most consistent and the sweat glands are least active, meaning the skin is more receptive to the deodorant. Over night the deodorant works to build a strong level of protection for your armpits, so you will get the best results. You can of course still shower in the morning and the deodorant magically still works all day long.

To use the product you have to turn the wheel at the bottom two clicks for each armpit and the creamy formula rises up through little holes; this gives the perfect amount of product and means you’re not wasting any.

I’ve tried both the Confidence and Sensitive Deods and they are both lovely but smell slightly different. Confidence has a more sweet, floral scent, whilst Sensitive is a little more musky, but still lovely. On to the results –


Challenge 1 – EXERCISE! I have been feeling like I need to get fit recently and so I set myself the challenges of going jogging and working out this week. Please note that I haven’t actually exercised properly or jogged for at least five years so this itself was a challenge! I started my jog at 1pm on Wednesday morning – the sun was shining and I persuaded my lovely mother to join me. We ventured down to the park at the top of our road and began!
As soon as I started running I realised actually how hot the weather actually was, but this didn’t worry me as I had full confidence that the Sure deod would work. Twenty minutes later I was all worn out and ready for a cup of tea at home, but not before the deod test. After a quick sniff of myself (niceeee) and a touch test, I can safely report that I was still smelling sweet and dry to touch under my arms.

Before & after my exercise!

Challenge 2 – Job Interview! I have recently been going through the dreaded job hunting journey that most people face after studying. On Monday I sent off a CV and cover letter for a job and I was asked for an interview on Thursday. Another hot day, another challenge which was bound to have me nervous and a little sweaty; I faced both a bus, a train and a long walk to the interview in the heat, but no! After my interview I still felt cool and protected.
I can also confirm that I got the job (a weeks full time work with a fantastic company)! (maybe this deod is lucky as well, ha!)

What I think – I am really impressed with this deodorant. It lasts ages on the skin and works really well to keep me dry and protected throughout the day in busy, nerve wrecking situations where I am out of my comfort zone. They both smell lovely and don’t irritate my sensitive skin at all. The only fault I can find is that if you wear black you may experience some white transfer on to your clothing!

Sure Maximum Deodorants should be available from all leading retailers for £5.30. You can also read more about it here –

Do you think you will try this deodorant? When are you most out of your comfort zone?

    I think I'm definitely going to give these a go. I have been using Driclor for about 10 years now as I have over active sweat glands under my arms (I hate saying that cuz it sounds gross but its not really!) but sometimes it irritates my skin, so these might be a nice substitute 🙂 great review xx

    I will probably give it shot. Thank you for the review. Congrats on the interview going your way! My curiosity is overpowering me… sorry I have to ask? What kind of job?

    Awesome review, this seems like a really great deodorant. I love that there are more long lasting hard wearing deodorants coming up, it just makes sense for them to own the market 😀
    Congrats on getting the job!

    at the moment i'm using a garnier minerals deoderant, but i'll definitely try these out! I never used to be keen on scented deods because i always found they masked the smell of excercise (ie sweat) rather than removed it but i'll give these ones a good go!

    Congratulations on the job 🙂
    I have some deodrant to use up first but if I see this I might give it a go
