GoBo Original Unfragranced Deodorant, £9.99

Time to get moving again? Utilising the powerful properties of glycolic acid – already proving highly popular in deodorant products over in the USA – GoBo creates beautifully smooth and soft underarms that can sweat naturally without the inconvenience of embarrassing odour. Pesky bacteria is killed deep within the dermis while the top layer of skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells – both of which contribute to the dreaded B.O. The result is a natural ‘deep-clean’ which helps eliminate deep stubborn sweat and grime build-up – ideal to detox your underarms from years of heavy deodorant use in order to switch to a natural aluminium-free deodorant. Detoxing your underarms can help rid your body of product build-up which may be contributing to making the smell worse and deodorants less effective. Naturally nurturing, GoBo can also be used between skin folds to prevent or neutralise body odour.
