Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant Review

It's the hottest month out here under the desert sun. It's 113 degrees outside, and I'm sitting in my car in traffic, baking slowly. My underarms start to sweat, and stick to my shirt, creating little damp circles of...Poof! Thankfully, that's the end of the nightmare sequence. Though it is indeed 113 degrees outside (low humidity in the desert, thank God for that!), my underarms rarely break into a sweat. I used to perspire heavily under intense temperature, but I've found certain products to curb that situation. I have two intense, protection-strength anti-perspirants that I use during the summer, and one of them is Certain Dri. This is not just an ordinary deodorant you see at your neighborhood drugstores or supermarkets. The product is specially-formulated to provide everyday, all-day dryness for those who suffer from excessive underarm perspiration. According to its website, Certain Dri® Solid Anti-Perspirant contains 25% aluminum sesquichlorohydrate (Anhydrous). It is the only over-the-counter antiperspirant with this ingredient, which is more effective than the aluminum zirconium formula found in over-the-counter solid antiperspirants that are labeled “clinical strength.”

The unique thing about this product is that it is NOT applied in the morning but at bedtime. The product claims to work even while you sleep to control excessive perspiration. In the morning, you may use the Certain Dri UnderArm Refresher to continue the protection throughout the day.

My Take: At first, I thought that this is a product I use during the day. Good thing I researched about it, but only after I've used it during the day for a number of times. It did work during the day, but not as much as when I properly used it according to the instructions. Make sure your underarms are clean when you apply this before going to bed after a bath or a shower. However, do not apply this on just-shaven underarms as this will sting. In the morning, I use another clinical-strength anti-perspirant. After a few weeks, I noticed that my underams began to feel drier, both when I am out in the sun and indoors. I also like the unscented formula because I do not like to smell deodorant when I am drifting off to dreamland.

If you suffer from excessive perspiration and are at the end of your rope, try this product, but make sure you fully read the instructions before you do.

Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant is available in mass-market retail, supermarkets and drug stores nationwide. Suggested retail price of $5.50, but I see it sold at Walgreens for over $6.
