I've always been a fan of Lynx, but I don't know why. Maybe it's because the adverts are always so good, maybe because everyone like Lynx, maybe even because they l;ooked good.
When everyone talked about Lynx, they always mentioned Lynx Africa. People said it was the best-smelling and that it worked the best as well. At that time, i was using Click, which was good, but smelt a bit lemony. Then i changed to Vice Dry, which was even better, but stung when you first sprayed it on. After that, i finally got some Africa, and can i just say, compared to the others, it looked a bit boring. To me, Click looked futuristic and cool as a cucumber with it's blue, interlocking, triangular crystals and Vice Dry looked a little psycho with 'VICE' looking like it was drawn in blood and eccentric black and red lines going all over the place. And those two were the more normal of the Lynx family; a family where the explosions of Fever and the searing green light with bubbles of Recover are considered only slightly offbeat.
And then there was Africa. Which has three lion-like lines ripping through 'Lynx'. Oh did i mention they're red and green. Sounds like more Christmas than Cool.

Still, maybe if it worked really well, it wouldn't matter what it looked like. Retrospectively, that was like thinking that if a model modelled really well then nobody would care what she looked like!
The first time i tried it, it tingled a little bit but soon enough felt like it wasn't even there. So far, so good. And then it all came crashing down. I was playing football, like i would do any other day, and i felt like i was sweating. So i checked my top and there was already a little dark, sour-smelling stain of sweat on my t-shirt. I hadn't been trying very hard, just kicking it back and forth. If it couldn't handle that, what was it like when i actually worked up a sweat?
It didn't matter if it smelled really good; deodarent is supposed to stop you sweating and if it can't, there must be something wrong with it.

It's fair to say that pretty soon i got rid of Africa and replaced it with Excite. Why waste your money on Africa when you can buy anther deodarent that will work. It's basically just something that smells nice and gives you a bit of protection against sweat, but not nearly enough

Great review

Can't really rate any higher as this isn't meant to make you not sweat, its antiperspirant that does that! Sorry for being picky.
