Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Eliminates odor, decent fragrance, works great
Cons:Has a slight clumping issue
The Bottom Line: While Kilo isn't a fragrance that I would normally go for or prefer, it definitely works extremely well, and suits it's purpose.
There's nothing that I love more than having the feeling of a good smelling kitty litter right under my arms. This is exactly what happens when you use the Axe line of "invisible" solids. I'm not really sure how they are invisible, unless they mean you can't see the smell, because well, I guess you can't see any smells. But this product is one of the worst by Axe.
Recommend this product?
I tried this product, as a free sample that I received through an Axe promotion that I had won. I got a free Axe T-Shirt, towel, shower shoes, and pretty much one of each of their deodorant products from the roll on deodorants to the body sprays.
Dipropylene Glycol, Tripropylene Glycol, water, Propylene Glycol, Sodium Stearate, Fragrance, Peg-90 Diisolstearate, Sodium Chloride, Stearyl Alcohol, Ext D&C Violet #2, D&C Green #6.
How well does it glide on
Well, it terms of gliding on, generally I find that if I don't put it on immediately after a shower, or after a workout, I need to add water to make it go on smoothly. If I don't do this, it gets stuck on my arm and I have to give myself a deodorant burn trying to get it on adequately. So, adding hot water to it and shaking it off, I found allows it to glide on quite easily.
This one didn't clump as much as the Essence deodorant did, however, it did still have a somewhat clumping effect, although somewhat subdued. I was able to continue to use this product all the way to the end, unlike with Essence.
The Kilo fragrance, is something quite a bit different than I am normally used to from the Axe line of products. I found that it was somewhat more fruity smelling that the other more masculine smells. However, it does smell great as a deodorant, especially once you get sweating. I think there's something that causes the smell to become that much better, once it is hit by foul smelling sweat. The combination of the smells seems to be make it a great smelling product.
What the ladies think
My wife actually enjoyed this deodorant. While she doesn't like the spray as much, as she likes Essence, she thinks that this deodorant, is actually a pretty good blend of fragrances overall, and since it works, she likes it that much more.
As an anti-perspirant/deodorant
The smell isn't as great as my favorite, Tsunami, but I have found that it does work wonderfully for it's intended purpose. It prevents myself from sweating pretty well, and does a great job eliminating odor. The only thing that you really smell is the smell of the deodorant itself and the body spray if you are wearing that along with it. So, for all intensive purposes, the product works great.
This is a strange Axe product, as you'd assume they would all work about the same. This one however, doesn't really work as well as an anti-perspirant as the others, however, it doesn't seem to matter, because the smell overpowers any odor that you may have.
While this product still have some minor clumping issues, it doesn't really bother me at all. I find that I can still adequately use this deodorant without worrying about the issues with clumping, like I do with Essence.
Personally, I found the fragrance to be somewhat fruity, and exotic, but once it's under your arm, it smells just fine. I think that the smell can be quite overpowering if you just smell the deodorant straight on, but when used during a workout, it is just perfect. You don't have to worry about any odor with this product.
