deodorant/anti-perspirant

Recommended Posts

I too had this issue when I was a teenager and have tried them all, including a prescription from my dermatologist (I think it was Drysol, but I felt like my armpits were burning). I would definitely recommend CertainDri, which I used to find at CVS. This worked as well as the CertainDri for me, and you could put it on in the AM (Though, they recommend using it at nighttime too). I don't remember getting the "deodorant balls" - it was a roll on, so you can't see it.

I don't have a problem with sweating anymore, and will use the Secret Clinical Strength or the Dove clinical one now.

Hope this helps!

I love Drysol. I think in the US though you need a presciption for it.

Word to the wise, do not use drysol right after shaving! The first few times you apply it, use it sparingly and rub it in with your fingertips. It can make your armpits a little irritated at first, but it will go away.

I use it a few times a week , and regular deoderant every day. The combination works great. Drysol is clear liquid (like alcohol) and goes on with a spongy applicator.

It is prescription only here in the US. You're right.

I'm a big advocate for drysol as well0 it works wonders for constant sweaters like me. :) When I first started using it, I had to put it on maybe 2-3 times a week at night. Now I sweat so little (because of the drysol) that I find I only need to put it on once every 3 weeks or so. DO be careful about not putting it on right after shaving because it will irritate your skin. The first couple times you use it, you might find your armpits get very itchy. That only lasted for an hour or so after I put it on the first couple times. Now I can't live without this stuff!

Kinda makes you wonder what's in the stuff if you only have to use it every 3 weeks! lol

 

I am going shopping tomorrow after work, so I'll look for it.

 

THANK YOU!!!!!! *hugs*

Yay! Great thread.

 

I have the same issue, either deodorant doesn't keep me dry or it leaves white marks. Ugh.

 

I'm definitely going to have my doctor get an Rx for the drysol and try that out.

Best thing I've found is Mitchum mens unscented smart solid. It's a solid but it's water based. NEVER leaves marks, no smell to it at all, is about $4, and it's strong.

Really? that's interesting! Thanks for the info, I may have to check that out!

I checked Wal-Mart and couldn't find the Drysol. Do you have to ask the pharmasist?

    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
