I have been buying gillette products for years and recently have purchased several cans of the same old aerosol deodorant,right guard sport-fresh scent in the large can 10oz.only to use it a couple of times and then there is no propellent left.the can is still full of deodorant but no aerosol left to get it i thought i just got a bad can ,but when i purchased another can at a different store same i am feeling a little ripped off sense i paid for a product that i cant get out of the can,so i tried to contact gillette and there web site would not allow axcess to contact us for a complaint.frustrated consumer.
