Dear Unilever Company:
Your website claims your products touch the lives of over 2 billion people every day and that 160 million times a day someone buys one of your products. I’m here to tell you that number is about to change to about 159,999,999 due to the fact that you can’t make a container of deodorant which works.
Your Degree deodorant claims to hold a usable 2.6 oz. By the time I repeatedly twirl the little bottom thingie that makes the deodorant magically appear at the top I may manage to use around 2.0 oz. Why, you ask? Because at that point the whole flippin’ white deodorant mess comes off the little long pointy stick thingie inside the deodorant container (notice my impressive use of technical terminology here) and what is left of the deodorant falls to the floor. I have carpeting in my dressing room and it makes a mess.
Usually, I pick up what’s left and attempt to jam it back onto the little stick thingie and guess what happens? The remaining deodorant falls apart in pieces. Do you know how difficult it is to try and hold onto what’s left while simultaneously rubbing it onto your armpits? I didn’t think so. I’m not sure about my armpits, but I know my fingernails smell fresh.
I like this deodorant. I do not like your packaging. I do not enjoy giving up. And, frankly, I have tried to improve on your packaging but the experience with the Gorilla Glue taught me I should not have to go through this (that and the fact it was uncomfortable walking around all day with your deodorant container accidentally glued to my armpit.) Repeatedly, I buy this product, and repeatedly I am disappointed when it falls apart before the contents are used up. Because of your shoddy packaging, adding up all the pieces parts of deodorant I have wasted in the past few months I figure I have lost at least one entire container of deodorant since January. I paid $3.64 at Target for Degree Ultraclear deodorant. I think you owe me at least a refund and some carpet cleaner…sigh…
