secret's clinical strength is awesome!

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
i swear i have super bad anxiety and sometimes i just start sweating really bad. it's kind of embarrassing, especially in front of a bunch of students and having to write kinda high on the whiteboard... i remember a teacher from HS who was sweaty all the time and i felt bad for her...

but anyways i bought the new secret clinical strength deodorant and it works WONDERS! i haven't "sweated" very much and the weather has been super warm too... i did some gardening and tanning today and didn't break an armpit sweat! you're supposed to put it on at night right before bed (because your body "cools" itself a couple degrees while sleeping) so it soaks in. you can shower in the morning, it's cool and apply it again or another deodorant of your choice (i'm more of a degree lady myself)...

i went to 4 walmarts (BF LOVES walmart) and they didn't have it, but my local grocery store did... $8.99 but so far worth every penny. i've been using it all week.

just thought i'd share for the other ladies on here who might be a little sweaty too... if there are any!

Certaindri uses aluminum chloride whereas secret uses aluminum zirconium which is basically a buffered version of aluminum chloride. I'm going to try it when my other stuff runs out, but I don't seem to have a problem w/irritation, which is the selling point for this Secret stuff. Aluminum anything is really kind of nasty, though

I use it once a week, I use body powder other days, so I smell Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiice

I have both and I prefer the certain dri.. it works better. and they make a certain dri am now too.. the one cool thing about the secret is that its only one product vs two so for travel it is ideal

I used the secret for two weeks stright but the certain dri works a bit better so now I am mixing them up

and for those who do not know the certain dri you apply at night and is a roll on they make a certain dri am in either roll on or solid

That's the one I use. It lasts for 3 days on me. But I don't have the humidity you guys do. Thank god, I'd die

ok call me a dork. really.

but i was at target today looking at secret's clinical strength, and going by active ingredients, it was only a couple percentages higher than say dove or regular secret (20% vs 18% or something). so i dunno if that would make enough of a difference for me to pay $5 more for the secret clinical strength.

but anyways i've never heard of this certain dri thing, i'm def gonna have to try that out.

I like the certain dri but I don't use it every night.. it says on the bottle it can last up to 72 hrs.. try it out maybe every other night or every three nights.. I just had to wear one in the morning too.. it just felt not quite right without so bought the certain dri AM at target in the solid and use it then.. I have one girlfriend who said it irritated her and If I can remember correctly it may have stung a little the first few times I used it..

ubt here in florida it is hot and humid and I hate having wet underarms at all.. especially when I wear alot of silk button downs for work..

this stuff is the greatest and i have been wearing it for some time.

I need to give this a try - I use men's deodorant(Arrid XX Dry) because none of the women's stuff I was tried was strong enough.
post #14 of 27
i use certain dry....it does work. I sweat like a mad buffalo, especially under my arms! So embarrassing.......but i use certain dry at night and secret platinum in the morning. The only annoying thing is that it stings like HELL if you put it on after shaving...and I shower nightly...so sometimes i gotta skip shaving. But other wise I do recommend it...better than any other deodarant out there.
I also tried Drysol...the prescription one, and that one was the best...but it was pricey and and i had to order form Canadian pharmacists...but that is the best I have ever used!

this stuff doesn't sting FYI and it smells good
post #16 of 27
Certain Dry def stings if you put in on after shaving. There is a girl at my school that used it every day after shaving. Her arm swelled up like a balloon and she had to go to the hospital for a few days. I guess they really mean it when they say don't put on after shaving lol.
post #17 of 27
Yeah, your underarms need to be really dry when you put it on. It has no scent either.

Does anyone know if this stuff is available in Canada?? I stopped by Shoppers Drug Mart yesterday and there was nothing! I've never even heard of this certain dri stuff before until now and I want to get my hands on some! I've always wondered how men's deo would work but I don't always enjoy the scents.

It's not available in Canada, no. I get Certain Dri from people in the US. Drysol is available in Canada either by prescription or over the counter. I found drysol burned too much though, wheareas certain dri can sting but it's bearable.

^Alright, I'm going to order some of this drysol stuff online and see how it works. So do you all agree that drysol works better than certain dri?

I couldn't leave it on to let it work. It BURNED. But you can just get that at shopper's if you want to try it first. Ask the pharmacist. It's certain dri you can't get here.

LOVE Certain Dri...I hardly ever sweat, and I don't have any B.O. issues, but when I interview for jobs I get really nervous and therefore REALLY sweaty. I bought this stuff during recruiting season and it worked miracles, it made me so much more comfortable bc I didn't have to worry about them seeing my sweaty pits when I stood up to shake hands.
