I’ve been looking into good deodorants/antiperspirants, because I was developing pit stains.

What I found out was that the aluminium salts in deodorants/antiperspirants seems to be a major factor in developing pit stains.  

What I also found out is that if you’re a woman, it seems you’re not allowed to sweat.  Every single women’s brand at the store I was at was a deod/antipersp.  What a pain!

My bf suggested I try Old spice (I was desperate and didn’t want to spend 5 dollars on Tom’s), but the only scent I liked was the one he wears…  

I got the Tom’s 12 hr in apricot, it works really well as a deodorant and smells great, but if you sweat buckets, you may want to need an additional application or two.  I find that at the end of a long and sweaty day, I am just beginning to smell like it’s been a long and sweaty day.

CertainDri

It is not a deodorant but an antiperspirant.  You have to use it at night because it will stain your clothes and then wash it off in the morning.  After a couple of days, your underarms will be like the Sahara.  It is the OTC version of the prescription antiperspirants you can get.  They have a CertainDri AM you can use as an actual deodorant during the day.

I can wear anything now and not have to think twice about spots.

Once you use it you will wonder why everyone who has ever sweated doesn’t use it.

When I was younger I use to sweat REALLY bad so my docotor prescribed me Drysol. it worked wonders…other than you didn’t want to use it right after you shaved or it would burn in the worse way. I would defintely recommend it.

I have been using the supre stregth “clinicial” ones that they came out with.  I’ve used them all and love them all – Right now I have Dove – you use them at night but I also use them in the day.  It takes a VERY hot VERY sticky day for it to NOT work.

I just bought Certain Dri and have been experimenting with it. It does seem to work quite well. You put it on at night and then I’ve been using my normal Dove in the morning. I think I could get away with just using the Certain Dri maybe 2-3x per week. I don’t think it’s the healthiest thing. I actually think it would be healthier to have Botox injections to help cut down on perspiration, but I am only doing it for the wedding so the Cetain Dri will work for me at less than $5!

Certain Dri.  But its is very easy to irritate the skin with it.  I only use it a couple times a week.  And also Degree Clinical is really good.  The smell is really strong though

Just to report back. I have been using the Certain Dri now for a couple of weeks and have noticed a huge difference. You only need to use it 2-3x per week at night before you go to bed. Then just use your ususal stuff in the morning. Actually, I have forgotten in the morning a couple of times and ws still protected. I got mine at Target.

I hate the ones that have a strong smell … I once wore Doves cucumber one and everything kept saying what a nice smell I had … hello it is on my underarms Tongue out

I like Fresh Sugar best. It’s my favorite and the smell is mild and nice.

I love certian dri, it’s the best, I don’t even have to use it every night now cause it just seemed to keep me from sweating in general, so i use it about 2-3 times a week at night with my regular one in the morning!

certain dri will absolutely make it impossible for sweat to escape your skin! i agree that it’s probably totally unhealthy, but i will be using it for my wedding day, yes.
