Works GREAT but itches so bad! I will continue purchasing. I can use it on Friday night and am good to go the whole weekend with no odor or wetness.
I have been using this product off and on for about 5 years. Ever since high school I've had problems with excessive underarm sweating, and I read about this product in a magazine and decided to try it. It works extremely well for me. I use it at night and only use about 2 strokes under each arm, because this can itch if you use too much. It is a liquid roll-on, so also if you use too much, it can run. If it does cause you to itch, I've discovered that if you wait a few minutes for it to start to dry, and then put regular deoderant on top of this, the itching goes away- not sure why, but it works for me. You really do only need to use this at night. I still use regular deoderant/antipersperant during the day, even though I really wouldn't have to because this product works so well for me.
For those of you who used certain dri, and doesnt work, u guys should try drysol! its a lot stronger, otc product. one treatment lasts for weeks, its a bit pricier though but works wonders, i luv it!
worst thing i've ever bought. Didn't work for me at all, i have better luck with degree & secret combined.
this totally put an end to my (very) embarrassing underarm wetness problem! i've tried every deodorant out there, even ones made for men, but i'd still sweat through my shirts and sometimes even sweatshirts. but with certain dri, i've noticed i absolutely NEVER sweat under my arms anymore. i can walk around in 90 degree heat and be sweating everywhere else but NOT my underarms! this stuff is truly amazing and i don't think i'd ever be able to go without it! it does sting when you put it on, but that's a small price to pay for completely dry underarms!
I am addicted to this product. I would cry is it was discontinued. I had a serious sweating problem since I hit puberty and had tried every stick deoderant out there. I finally found certain dri and i've been using it for at least 5 years now. It definitely should not be used after shaving. Your armpits will itch and burn like hell. Also, a little goes a long way, so I apply it sparingly.
I sweat a lot, especially in the summer. This stuff helps keep me dry all day. You apply it at night and use regular anitperspirant/deodorant in the morning. Do not apply this right after shaving, however. Your underarms will itch and burn. Other than that, it's great!
I've been using this for years and will continue to do so. It's an HG, not because I find it to be flawless, but because it's in a league of it's own and because it does what it promises to do.
You do have to make sure you don't apply it within a few hours of shaving or it will sting like a ********.
Also, I recommend letting it dry fully before putting on any top: it discolored the armpit area in a couple of my tees (yes, sometimes I put a bit more on in the morning).
I loooove this product. Now, many people complain of irritation and such, but of course, it will happen when something such as Aluminum Chloride is in the product. It completely seals your pores so no sweat can come out. It stings for a little, and may itch, but it is completely worth it in my opinion. If you have a real problem with irritation, be careful to not apply too much.
I use it nearly every night before I go to sleep: I do not sweat from my underarms at all. I love it. I had huge problems with pit stains before, where I would not even do strenuous activity but would sweat right through a sweater anyway. It was really embarrassing, even though it did not smell. Certain Dri stopped within the first day of using it, and now I don't worry when I lift up my arms, lol.
They say to use "Certain Dri A.M." for more protection, but really, it's unnecessary. You can use your regular deodorant, it's the same ingredients. Also Certain Dri A.M. leaves white marks so use something that doesn't do that.
All in all, whenever this runs out, I am DEFINITELY buying it again. Excellent product.
i've gotten my mom hooked on this stuff. it's a bit more expensive than regular deoderant, but it really eliminates underarm wetness which used to be a huge, embarassing problem for me and one little bottle lasts me for months! it's a bit tempermental to use - can't use near a shower or within hours of shaving. however, i'm used to the quirks and wouldn't live without it. i don't even have to apply every night anymore- just once every couple of days and i'm set (and i live in the south!). considering i used to be so self conscious about wetness, it doesn't even cross my mind anymore.
