The Red Zone and High Endurance deodorants are two products from the Pure Sport range from Old Spice.
Old Spice released the Pure Sport High Endurance some years back but changed the formula and renamed it Pure Sport Red Zone.
While the ingredients are majorly the same, there appear to be subtle differences between the two.
In this article, I look at both and try to explain where and why they are different.
It’s good to know the differences even if you can’t get back the High Endurance.
It’ll help you decide if you really want to choose the new version of the deodorants.
What Is Old Spice Red Zone Deodorant?
The Red Zone Deodorant is designed to cover up odor and reduce wetness while giving you a noticeable scent.
According to the brand, you can expect it to last for up to 2 days.
The sealed scent in the deodorant is released throughout the day, so your armpit doesn’t stink, so to speak.
The dominant scent in the Red Zone can be described as lime and cedarwood.
And like other Old Spice deodorants, the Red Zone is free from aluminum and you can use it any time of the day.
Does it also cause burns?
I’ve not come across a report on the Old Spice Pure Sport Red Zone causing burns.
Others, such as the Old Spice Swagger and Lionpride deodorants have complaints like this filed against them.
What Is Old Spice High Endurance Deodorant?
The Old Spice High Endurance deodorant is meant to help you reduce armpit sweat, keep it dry, and smell nice.
The item is available in a 3 oz package and is free from alcohol and aluminum.
While it was possible to order it from the brand, it’s now out of stock and not coming back. Keep reading to know why.
Here is how Old Spice described the High Endurance deodorant:
This deodorant overpowers even the burliest stink with original manly deodorant, Old Spice. Smell like a man who knows how to smell manly. Provides 24-hour odor protection so you can climb a mountain, …, ride an elevator all in the same day.
The brand also claims that the High Endurance deodorant features a manly scent of clove and citrus, ready to intensify a smell of masculinity.
The respect and love that this particular deodorant command is massive.
Unfortunately, it has been discontinued and is being replaced by the Red Zone.
A lot of people have complained the change has made the deodorant worse and almost unusable. Unfortunately, there is only little that you can do about that.
Old Spice Red Zone vs High Endurance: Comparison
According to Old Spice, the major difference between the High Endurance and Red Zone can be summarized below:
Each version uses different technologies. High Endurance offers long-lasting odor and wetness protection, while Red Zone contains our CORE Technology: a controlled release scent system that provides scent steadily throughout the day, and is our best option for dryness protection.
This means that they both work similarly.
However, the Red Zone is basically designed to offer longer-lasting odor protection while the High Endurance is better for sweat reduction.
So, if you want the deodorant that offers dryness protection and helps cover the armpit odor, then go for Red Zone.
However, if you want wetness protection deodorant that also covers the stink, go with High Endurance.
