Dove 7 Day Challenge + Kili Kili Powerz (The Good Kind)

Would you put lotion on your underarms? No? I thought so too.

Apparently though, if there's one body part that needs moisturizing too, it has got to be our kili kili.

In an intimate get-together held at Atelier 317, Dove hosted an underarm talk wherein Unilever R&D Gabbie Agerrado, Dove Deos Brand Manager Kristine Rey & PR assistant Cheskie Ayson, Dove girl Nicole Hernandez de los Angeles and dermatologist Dr. Anna Palabyab-Rufino talked to us about women's underarms and of course, our common underarm concerns.

The biggest eye opener for me during the talk was that underarms need to be constantly moisturized. 

Turns out, underarm issues like darkness, chicken skin and ingrown hairs are caused by irritation and dryness. If you think you can get rid of underarm chicken skin via exfoliation, you are probably exacerbating the condition. If you are constantly shaving your already dry underarms, then you are really doing more harm than good.

But we don't exactly have to use actual lotion to moisturize our kili kili.

According to Dove deo R&D Gabbie Agerrado, Dove deos already have their much touted 1/4 moisturizing cream, so when you use a Dove deodorant, your kili kili gets that much needed moisture along with anti-perspirant and deodorant protection.

This moisturizing cream is so effective that they promise that the Dove Whitening Deodorant can address the problem of dark, chicken skin underarms in only seven days.

I was up to the challenge, religiously putting on Dove whitening original after each bath, and I am quite pleased with the results. Enough to show you a kili kili shot if you're up for it, haha!


There is also Dove Ultimate White which takes care of those stubborn dark underarm spots. 

The latest addition to the line is Dove Pure, the anti-irritation variant that has no fragrance, no parabens, no colorants and no alchohol.
