Dot & Key Underarm Mask & Serum
Updated: Apr 3
I'll count this review under Body Care series. Underarm is that part of our body we tend to ignore and not really care about. The max we do for it is use a deodorant even that most of the times isn't right for us. The waxing, saving, hair removal process causes more problems then we realize and now-a-days almost all of us suffer from hormonal issues which makes our under arms dark.
I suffer from the worst underarms ever so when I saw there is a product in the market available for it I just bought it. I have used other creams before but they all kind of gave me a rash or just did not work for me. I do have extra sensitive skin and I'm prone to rashes and allergic reactions and underarms are sensitive in general anyway for all of us. I have used the mask for 4 months now and the serum for 2 months, I wanted to test it properly before giving my views on it. Read through to know what worked for me.
Dot & Key Underarm Detox & Color Correction Mask
Product Description: There may be several reasons why underarms become darker and coarser with time, but there's no reason that can't be corrected. This detoxifying mask is specifically designed for tender underarm skin and eliminates pigmentation, discoloration and roughness of dark underarm skin.
Formulated with activated charcoal, jojoba and tea tree oils, it pulls out those dark, dead skin cells, dry sweat and accumulated impurities to reveal the lighter underarm skin underneath. Its calcium-vitamin complex helps restore the natural even tone of skin, not just making it lighter, but smoother and softer as well. With no nasty chemicals, it is safe and gentle on skin, free of side-effects. The zesty peppermint and tea tree oils it contains deodorize effectively, fighting body odour, leaving skin feeling fresher, for longer. This is a quick little detoxifying treat - one that your underarms thoroughly deserve.
How to use:
Apply a thick layer of the detox & skin lightening mask to underarm skin.
Leave on for 20 minutes.
Gently rinse with water and pat dry.
For best results, use twice a week, followed by Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum.
Price: Rs 695/- for 100 gm

I have tried and seen a lot of underarm creams but not masks and especially a mask like this one. I truly love this mask. I have been using it for over 4 months now and I can totally say I love this and I would repurchase this when it gets over.
If you have mild texture or uneven skin tone then this mask is gonna show a difference in a month but I have terrible underarms and mine won't completely be okay till my hormones are not in control but even then this mask has made a huge difference in my texture. I was suffering from severe rashes especially after hair removal and I had to stop using deodorant completely. I never suffered from under arm sweating but still I have terrible dark patches. This mask not only helped me with my rashes it also helped me little to no sweat and I don't have to use a deodorant because underarms don't smell bad at all, infact they smell amazing and fresh all the time. It gives a cooling effect which stays for a day or two.
The best part of the mask is its scent, it smells amazing and it gives you that amazing fresh feeling without making your underarms dry and itchy. I don't know how but its also moisturizing, even though it has Tea Tree oil. The scent is my fav thing but the packaging is amazing too. The color, the cute tub it comes in is very classy and I love that. The tub is baby pink with white screw cap with looks like frosting. But it has only the name printed on it and the rest of the information is on the cardboard box it comes in. So if you are someone who likes to keep the instruction you will have to keep the outer box or you can keep the card/leaflet that comes with it. There is also a tiny white spoon that comes with the tub.
I use this mask 2 times a week regularly. I would suggest don't use your hands as the black charcoal stains your nails and you won't get an even application. Use a brush and keep it separate for it. I apply directly and don't mix anything not even water, its not needed. It spreads easily and it doesn't completely dry or get stiff and cracky. It also doesn't transfer and make other stuff dirty either. I leave in on for 15 mins and then wash it off. I give it a slight exfoliation while removing it since it does have small particles which help in that. The particles are not harsh on the skin at all.
I also use this under my boobs. I know that sounds weird but seriously it really works. So a lot of us who are heavy breasted we suffer from pigmentation and discoloration under our boobs and we also sweat there especially in the summers. So I have been using this mask and it has helped me a lot in evening out the skin and also control the sweat and makes me feel fresh which I love.
If you suffer from any problems or you don't I would suggest get this one. I feel like this is a must in all our lives even for boys/men. I'm pretty sure they would love this too if only they don't mind applying it and sitting for 15 mins. If you suffer from severe underarm sweating this mask will really help you to a great extent so definitely give it a try.
My Rating: 🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️🙋♀️ 5/5 I would give it 10 out of 5 I love it that much.
Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum
Product Description: Underarm can become darker than the natural skin tone due to a host of factors including poor ventilation, excessive sweating and the accumulation of dead skin cells. Dot & Key Underarm Colour Correction Serum, specifically designed for tender underarm skin, penetrates deeply to eliminate this pigmentation and roughness.

Its carefully formulated skin lightening botanical system contains the goodness of Uva ursi (bearberry) leaf and Paeonia suffruticosa (peony) root which corrects uneven skin tone of dark underarms by significantly deterring the production of melanin without any toxicity or side-effects. It minimizes the area of rigid pigmentation and brightens the complexion, creating an even tone on all skin types. The result? Soft, smooth, evenly toned underarms in a matter of weeks.
How to use:
Cleanse underarms with water and pat dry.
Gently apply 2-3 pumps of the skin lightening serum to pigmented area.

So when I heard that the mask works better if followed by the serum, I got the serum. Now I like the serum but between the mask and serum, I like the mask more and I can live without the serum. Have been using the serum for 2 months now. I do really love the packaging and that it comes with a pump.
My major problem with the serum is that I mostly forget to apply it. See this is what I'm talking about, I would never forget my face cream/serum but we neglect our body parts like our underarms all the time. We need to take care of it too, and that's where this serum comes in because its a really good serum. It not only helps with pigmentation but it also makes your underarm smell real nice and you also sweat a lot less. I don't sweat at all if I use the combination of mask plus this serum.
The consistency is exactly like a regular serum light weight and gets absorbed easily onto the skin. The scent is amazing fresh and cooling on the skin and the scent lingers through out the day. Don't do a deodorant over it though. You really won't feel the need anyway.
First you need to have clean and dry underarms then you can apply this serum. You do need to apply this twice a day regularly to see a difference. Now depending on how bad is your condition it will take that much time. You really have to be consistent with this and also it works better with the mask. Just the serum doesn't do that much of a difference and takes way longer.
I would recommend this if you really wanna try this or if yo really want something for your underarm pigmentation otherwise you can skip it. I'm saying so because you get only 50 ml bottle and if you use 4 pumps of it every day morning and evening, the bottle will last you only for 2 months maximum 3 months which is a little expensive.
Just because it takes longer to show any result compared to the mask.
*** You can use the mask and serum even after waxing/shaving it doesn't burn or cause any kind of irritation. Also you don't need to remove your hair to use these two you can use either way. If you are someone who suffers from bad case of underarm odor then definitely get these two it will help. You can use the mask three times a week instead of two times for the first month.
If you have mild to medium pigmentation the combination of mask and serum will solve your problems in 2 months but if you have severe problems then its gonna take a while. If you want to invest in one thing go for the mask. But if you want to see full on results you need to use both. Hope you enjoyed this review.
I love Dot & Key as a brand and that they come out with products for parts we tend to forget in our body care.
