Default Anti-Perspirants(sp?)

I was wondering what anti-persp. deoderants the rest of the gals here use. I have tried Dove, and that doesn't help much. I'm also using Secret Platinum Protection right now, and that works somewhat, but not enough. I know since it's so hot I will sweat, but I want something that's strong enough to work to where I don't sweat so much.

It's not a lot of sweat, but enough to keep my pits wet and keep me from wearing tee-shirts.

I use antiperspirants that are clear-gel type and the brands are mostly targeted to men.

ehh, I use secret, because it works best for me.. other antiperspirants had some ingredient in it that would give me a rash. [img]/forum/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img] if red zone old spice comes scentless maybe try that?

i use secret sheer dry. its ok. its better than anything else i've tried over the counter. i have a problem with wetness mostly and the only thing that works is a product called DrySol. i put it on at night before bed. keeps me very dry, for weeks on end only applying it once a week (after the first 2 weeks) but its TOO expensive and some of the ingredients are harsh (if you have sensitive skin). i still have to use regular deodorant in the morning though for other reasons. but honestly, IT WORKS!

here's one, of many, websites...

Thanks Amazon & SoccerChick. I've been using something called Certain Dry that I put on at night every few weeks, and it works to where it keeps my pit sweat down quite a bit, but I still sweat, especially if I am nervous or working. I'll check out DrySol.

i've used drysol for 3 years, but i had to stop due to my finances. if you can afford it, give it a shot.

i've heard about certain dry, but i was skeptical about it cause i heard mixed reviews. people either loved or hated it.

I was just reading about DrySol and it says to place plastic wrap over the area after using the stuff. Is this necessary?
