How to go a week without using deodorant! Review/giveaway Closed
Did the title get your attention? Well, let me explain what that actually means. I'm frugal, but I'm not THAT frugal! I have been given the opportunity to review Certain Dri solid. I had seen it in the stores before but had never purchased it or had the chance to try it out. However, I was intrigued when I heard that it is the number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration.
I received the new Certain Dri Solid. It is from the new line of antiperspirant products. The great thing about this product is that it is okay to use if you have sensitive skin, which I happen to have.
If you have never known the difference between an anti-perspirant like Certain Dri and regular deodarant, I'll give you a quick lesson. Anti-perspirant is designed to keep you for sweating. It is supposed to keep your underarm area dry and odor free. The reason your underarms smell is because of the sweat. Not that sweat itself stinks, but when you sweat under your arms, it is a damp place. Damp things don't usually smell too good. Thus, anti-perspirant is designed to keep you from sweating. Instead, your sweat is diverted out of your body through your bladder or from other areas. Does that seem a little scary? It shouldn't be. Your skin is able to sweat from every other inch of your body so having your armpits odor free and dry by using anti-perspirant should not be scary. If you have sweaty feet or hands, Certain Dri can even be used for that.
Deodorant covers up the odor. You have to, of course, put it on when you are clean or else it doesn't work. I think most deodorant now is deodorant and antiperspirant combined. It, to me, doesn't work as well as Certain Dri. That is just my opinion though.
What I absolutely loved about Certain Dri is that you can use it once and it can work for up to 72 hours. I chickened out the first time I used it. I am a teacher, and I knew that I had a parent conference coming up and I was afraid to go without reapplying. I made it two days but for the third day (the day of the parent conference), I put on deodorant. Funny thing was when I was taking a shower, I still didn't smell any underarm odor so it was still working. I was just paranoid that it would be really hot in my classroom and I would sweat it off and have to show up at the conference not smelling too great. Now, I have gone the whole three days and it works for me. I think you would have to try it for yourself to find how long you can go without reapplying.
Now for the awesome part. I have been offered a giveaway to go along with this review. Here is what you have to do to get your entries in for one stick of Certain Dri solid.
