Sounds like you’ll need to test a different product till you find what works for you. Like perfumes, deodorants depend on your individual body chemistry to work properly. That’s why some brands work great for some people and others don’t work at all, even though other people swear by them.

Sometimes if you use the same product over the years, you get used to it, and it is no longer effective, try another brand….

Did you only use the Certain Dri? I always put that on before bed and then used regular deodorant during the day.

I definitely think you should still be wearing your normal deodorant. Certain Dri just closes up the pores so that you sweat less. You still want to use something to ensure that you smell fresh all day!

yeah, i believe certain dri is meant to be used along with your regular deodorant, not by itself. but they also have the daytime product. maybe you can give that a try too.

I use the secret clincal stregnth which is the same stregnth as Certain Dri and is just like a normal deodarant too. Technically you’re also only supposed to use it at night but I use it in the morning after my shower and haven’t had an issue…

If you have a really bad problem, you can talk to your doc about a prescription.  I tried everything over the years and nothing worked — not even Certain Dri.  Half of the clothes I loved would have a short lived life in my closet because of this.  So I talked to my doc and they gave me a prescription.  I used the prescription stuff every other day for a week or two and have since only used it twice a week at night and then regular deodorant during the day (Mitchum – not girly but this s&!t works.)  It’s been almost two years and I so wish I had done it sooner.

You might want to try dry sol. I swear by it. It really changed my life.

You are still supposed to use your regular deoderant while using Certain-Dri!

I hear that Ban works especially well for my BFF who has sweating “issues” who also uses Certain-Dri as well. 

Secret has always worked for me! In particular Secret-Scent Expressions.

I’ve been using certain dri for years and years and I’ve never ever ever used my regular deoderant with it. I can’t remember, does it say anything about needing to use it for a while to see results? Because it has definitely gotten more effective over time. I used it daily in the beginning and now I only need to apply it every 2-3 days. Are you sure you used to correct one? There’s an AM one (which is useless) and a PM one.

I suggest talking to a doctor! I triedd certain dri and it didn’t work for me at all. I ended up telling the doctor and he gave me something stronger. I used it for about 3 – 4 months and haven’t had a problem since! It’s been about 5 years and I don’t sweat or smell like BO ever. I used to sweat constantly before I used the prescription deodorant.
