It's like Cauterizing Your Underarm Sweat Glands

Not really, but I haven't been moist for days. Last week before I spent two days moving furniture, I decided to try a new deoderant. I thought I was the only one out there that had to switch up my deoderants every few months, but then Julie told me that she has to as well.

See, every couple of months, I notice that at the end of the day, my arm pits are both sweaty and musty smelling. I get paranoid and start asking friends and co-workers if they can smell me. They swear they can't, but I can. That's when I know it's time to start working with a new deoderant to take the edge off the smell.

This time I decided to switch from Dove Cool Moisture to something a little more hardcore. I wasn't going to go all Certain Dri on my underarms because I wasn't sure they could take it. So, I tried Secret's Clinical Strength deoderant in powder fresh.

After a day of moving furniture, I noticed that I was sweating everywhere. . .except under my arms. And that I didn't smell. I didn't smell like powder fresh goodness, but I did not stink like a construction worker in July, either. Both of which are good things in my book.

Pros: Left me high and dry.

Cons: Leaves the typical weird skin feeling under your arms. That slick, smooth, no pores kind of feeling. Only comes in unscented and powder fresh.

Price: About $8- a little expensive for deoderant, but worth it.

Rating: Relatively fierce. I'll keep buying it until it stops working and then I'm on to another!

First off, I love the first sentence. That's what she said. I might have to try this new clinical strength. The last time I used something hard core, it was Certain-Dri and I had rashes constantly on my underarms, but I didn't sweat at all. You win some, you lose some.
