Sweating -- or as I like to call it, "glistening." We all do it. Whether you're just naturally on the sweatier side or you're into working out, a good antiperspirant is essential and can be hard to come by.
In fact, over the years I've tried several different brands, and I've had a tough time with some of them. I have really sensitive skin overall, and some products I had used in the past actually caused me to have underarm cysts on a regular basis (gross, I know, but we're talking about sweating so we're kind of on a not so sexy topic from the get-go).
Over the years I feel like I've tried them all. Different brands and scents, and the one I keep loyally repurchasing is Secret® Outlast™ antiperspirant (and speaking of Secret®, I also love their clinical strength antiperspirant, especially during the height of summer). Outlast™ says it offers 48 hours of protection, but really no one needs that much protection because you shower once a day, but hey, I'll take all the extra protection a product can offer.
What I appreciate about this antiperspirant is it does not irritate my skin; it works all day (and night, no need to reapply), and it goes clear when you apply it.
The true test for any antiperspirant is how it performs after wearing it all day and then hitting the gym at night. As I mentioned earlier, I never have to reapply this antiperspirant before a workout (even the grueling ones with my trainer). It continues to protect as I'm "glistening" away.
I also live in Texas, and in October we're still having some days in the 80s and 90s, so while some ladies might be able to get away with a super mild product, I need the extra protection of a 24-48 hour formula. I also find that the powder scent isn't so overpowering that it competes with my perfume.
Though antiperspirant isn't as glamorous as lip gloss, blush and bronzer, I'd argue that it's just as essential -- if not more so. Finding one that works for you should definitely be a priority when it comes to your hygiene routine (it's kind of on the same level as finding the perfect whitening toothpaste).
Speaking of products that are part of your everyday routine, feel free to visit Have You Tried This Yet from P&G to learn more about high performing products from Procter & Gamble brands like Crest®, Olay®, Pampers® and Tide®. Other than Pampers (obviously), I have used products from all of these brands -- in fact, TIDE's "Free" laundry detergent is the only one I buy for my regular loads (I do use a special sport wash for my Lululemon clothing) and Crest's Glamorous White is my favorite whitening toothpaste (it really does help fade stains).
If you're still not sure about a product you're wanting to try, P&G is running a program throughout the next year offering various value saving opportunities to try some of the Have You Tried This Yet? from P&G program’s participating products:
