That Certain Dri Stuff Works Pretty Well for Perspiration

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm not a huge perspire-er (worse than some, better than many), but I do a lot of walking and it's getting warmer. Been applying the roll-on to my underarms and forehead (hard for me to stop the waterworks once it starts up there) and the results have been impressive. It took three nights of applications before I noticed a difference, but then it really did a great job of stopping the drips. If you suffer from the same, give it a try. The name is appropriate - better be certain your pits are completely dry before you roll the stuff on, otherwise it'll sting. Once it starts working, you only need to reapply once every 2-3 nights.

I agree with this. I have been using Certain Dri since high school. Amazing stuff. Revolutionized mu social life.

I am definitely going to check this out. Does it not wash off in the shower?? and can you pust on a deodorant over this??

Doesn't wash off, but you're still supposed to apply it before bedtime so it can work while you're sleeping. You can apply a deodorant over it the following morning. I just took a 2 hour hike and my pits are Sahara dry. As mentioned, give it three days to do the magic. Also, the roll-on is better than the stick.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome being able to go on a long run in the summer and then smell the pits and have it be neutral.

Obvious question: isn't that unhealthy to not let your body perspire?

Yes. Perspiration cools your body. Abusing this item could lead to heat exhaustion.

I bought some of this today to test it out. Will report back.

Your body doesn't perspire out of a few square inches under your pits, but it still perspires out of the 99% of the rest of your body. I don't think this would really affect the heat dissipation of your body as a whole. I am more worried about the continued exposure to the aluminum chloride in the anti-perspirant. Althought I've heard that link to Alzeheimer's, etc, is bunk or at least too inconclusive to really mean anything.

The effects of aluminum chloride in anti-persperants concern me as well. Using it daily for years on end is a lot of chemicals to expose your body to. I use natural deodorants now.

Is there anything like Certain Dri that only works when you have it on? Ideally, I'd like to be able to work out and sweat like a pig, shower, then walk around without pit stains for the rest of the day. Is there any product that does that? (No, regular anti-perspirant doesn't totally do it for me).

do you apply directly to your forehead and it does not cause some kind of adverse reaction? asking b/c it says to "apply to underarms only"

I also like one called Odaban. It comes in a little spray bottle. I use it 1-2 times per week.

I used this stuff a few years back. It gave the skin around my armpits a yellowish tone. Being fairly light skinned, it looked like I had a pit tan. It does work for preventing perspiration though.

No adverse reaction at all in my experience with it - I start just below my hairline, one roll across that area and then rub it into my forehead with my fingertips. That keeps it to a minimal application amount and allows me to control exactly where I want the stuff to go - between the hairline and a bit above the eyebrows. The application should be light rather than heavy. It should dry in less than a minute if one applies the correct amount.

I've heard that one is really good. Not readily available in the US (although I might be wrong about that).
