DIVA DISH: Some Like It Hot

DIVA DISH: Some Like It Hot

… and some sweat when the heat is on!

Best believe Robert Palmer was onto something…

And if you’re among the latter, do I have a product for you!

I recently got my hands on Donna Karan Cashmere Mist Deodorant/Anti-Persperant after being informed of its cult following.


While I of course like to smell good and while I don’t think underarm sweat is necessarily a hot look, before I had it in my possession I couldn’t fathom how deodorant could really get anyone all that excited.

I mean, I like the feel of the Dove deodorant I’ve been using most recently and I also can appreciate Mitchum’s commitment to banish white marks left by most brands.

But the deodorant category as a whole just doesn’t inspire me like many others in Beauty. 

A lipstick, for example, can bring me joy and the opportunity for self-expression and glamour and straight up sex appeal.

Deodorant, well, it brings me nothing more than its function.

And then the product arrived at my desk.

Both a deodorant and anti-persperant, this DKNY Cashmere Mist solid stick is super silky and just glides on.  And stays on and works.  And although I don’t have sensitive skin, it’s gentle enough to be used immediately after shaving.  And of course, it smells amazing. 

The best part – it’s not an overpowering scent, it’s reallllllly light – so it doesn’t compete with my own signature scent.  Of course, it’s best when paired with Cashmere Mist and I plan to layer it with Cashmere Mist Luxe on occasion this fall (the latest in the line-up, created in celebration of the scent’s 15 year incredible success story).  But my signature fragrance and I have been going steady for years and years now.  I may have flings here and there but we always get back together and I can’t have a scented deodorant come between us.

The DKNY team at Lauder did it right, no surprise.

I put DK Cashmere Mist deodorant on now every day after I shower and it immediately evokes my femininity.  That’s really the best way I can put it.  I feel like a girl. 

I really do love it and can finally understand the buzz…. AND it conveniently also comes in a small travel-sized version for us fabulous jet-setters! LOVE!

I encourage you all to check it out to find out just how excited you too can be about deodorant.
