I have had issues with excessive perspiration for years now and I was about to give up hope. I purchased this product after having no luck with every other brands on the market. This product has completely stopped my sweating! Follow the directions on the package which says to use it at night before bed, but try not to use too much as it will make you itchy. I completely love this product and will definitely repurchase it again. The only downside is the packaging. I noticed that too much product spews out of the container and drips onto my hands when I tip it to apply. However, this is a great product!
This was rec'd on the wedding board to a bride for her wedding day, and as I was engaged at the time, and I didn't want to worry about sweat or antiperspirant marks on the day-of, I got some.
I'm not super sweaty, but in the summer when I leave work to run an errand and get very hot, it takes awhile to cool off and for the sweating to stop, and in the meantime it was yucky and uncomfortable. I had antiperspirant in my desk for such occasions, but it didn't help at that point.
The Certain Dri works for me. I use it only about 3 x per week, and I'm only on my 2nd bottle in 2 years, it lasts that long.
At first it did itch because it's hard for me not to apply after a shower, as the directions indicate to apply in the evening, and I shower at night, but it seems that I have developed a tolerance because it doesn't really bother me anymore.
I can go out during the hottest time of day and not sweat. As a result, I like to think that I don't get the yellowing in the pits of my white shirts anymore, and though I have not done any clinical studies :P, I have not noticed any discoloration on my newer white shirts.
I suffer from excessive sweating. I get so mad because I can't wear any clothes that I want to, I can only wear some blacks and whites, I also sweat right through sweatshirts so I can't even wear nice colors in those! I go to a dermatolagist for my face and asked him about what I could do to stop my sweating. He recommend this and dry sol. So I tried them both with high hopes. But neither of them worked for me I was still sweating and not to mention both of them would hurt so so much when I put them on. Like I am not just saying it was just a bit of stinging, it felt like millions of little needles were being stabbed into me. And it also itches like crazy and it burned my skin. Even if this stuff worked for me I don't think I would be able to put up with the pain. I have tried everything out there and I am just giving up and I am getting Botox in my armpits because it is the only thing I have not tried. And it is supposed to work very well. And my dermatologist recommended it and he said it is very safe. Also the insurance that my parents have me on covers at least 80 percent of the cost. So if you are like me and suffer from sweating ask your doctor about Botox. I think I am getting it this fall so I can't say if it works or not. Maybe this stuff just does not work for me, everybody is different so please try this and everything else before you try more drastic measures like I am.
Since the age of 13 I had suffered from over active sweat glands. I had tried just about every deodorant/anti-perspirant on the market, with no luck. I had just about resigned myself to a life of sweaty armpits when, I seen Certain Dri at the store and figured I might as well give it a try. Much to my surprise, after 1 application my armpits stayed dry throughout the whole day! My only complaint is that after continued daily use it dried my skin and caused some irritation so, I have now switched to using this every other day and it works just as well. This stuff is a God send!
I have had the best results with this product! It is amazing how quickly it started working for me, and I really had a problem with stains. I live in Texas [and we all know it's hot] and I would be outside for 10 minutes and start to get stains. After using this product for a few days I noticed a difference. Now, I have been using it for 4 months and I don't have stains anymore AT ALL and it's July here. It's so wonderful. I use it every other night [not every night, it drys out my underarms, and I also wax my underarms] and just use a regular deodorant during the day [Aarid]. I swear by this product, it really works fast and does a great job. I was about to schedule a derm apt but decided to try this first and I'm glad I did! Much, much cheaper!
I love this product. I also had an excessive sweating problem and had tried everything on the market. When I first tried it I thought it was not working but you must follow the directions very carefully in order for this product to deliver awesome results. One rater said it wasn't working for her but you really have to apply sparingly (2 strokes) otherwise you'll sweat more. Especially if you apply the product at night and also wear your normal anti-perspirant in the morning like I do. I love the product so much that when I hear someone talking about how they sweat so much I'll butt into their conversation and tell them about how great Certain Dri worked for me. If they ever stopped making this I would probably be sad, but there are a lot of new products on the market that I have not tried since I've been using this product for about 5 or 6 yrs. Anyways, if you haven't tried it and have excessive perspiration, try it and I'm sure you'll love it :)
And another thing-I have a secret for how to stop the itching that some say they have. Only shave every other day and never shave before applying Certain Dri. Shave the morning after applying it. Hope this helps :)
This product does work very well, BUT it can make me itch like crazy! The first time I used this, I'd waited about 10 hours since shaving but it itched so badly it was difficult to sleep. Still, because it worked so well, I was determined to find a way to make this tolerable. I tried again after not shaving my underarms for at least 24 hours and that did the trick. Also, be sure to use only one or two swipes. It's tempting to use more, but that'll only cause more itching and it won't be any more effective. I will definitely continue to purchase this!
In 8th grade I started sweating excessively. It just started all of a sudden one day. Even in the winter time I would be sitting in class with pit stains!!! It was so embarassing. My mom and I went to the store and found certain dri. I followed the instructiions and applied it at night. It itched a little but nothing major. Then next morning I applied my deodarant and went to school. I still sweated but it was nothing compared to how I was sweating before. After a couple days of using it I wasnt sweating at all!! And it lasts forever! I love Certain dri.
Literally, the best thing that ever happened to my armpits. I am soooooo grateful for Certain Dri's existence, and will continue to repurchase as long as it is made.
Not only does it keep me completely dry, I can also skip up to 3 days and not worry about sweating even if I'm wearing a sweater in blistering heat. Amazing.
This is my HG of antipersperant (sp?). I used to get sweat stains ALL the time, I felt so embarrased, and never wanted to raise my arms for anything. I got this, no more sweating, its the only thing that keeps me from sweating a ton. It itches REALLY bad for me, and sometimes it burns after I've shaved, but I just suck it up, because it's all worth it for the dryness. I will and have bought this over and over again.
