The uncertainty of "do I smell?" or "does it show?" is a key theme for people with special sweat control needs. The fear of being discovered and experiencing the embarrassment of social exclusion can be very stressful. The everyday life can be restricted; avoid wearing certain clothes, wash during the day, apply antiperspirant several times a day and other daily routines where you have to spend time worryng if the wetness problem is obvious to others.
Perspirex offers an effective and reliable sweat and odour protection with three unique features: strong protection against sweat and odour by using highly effective ingredients, long-lasting sweat and odour reduction effect, and good skin feel through the active skin care technology. Engineered specifically for people with special sweat control needs, Perspirex gives you up to five days of life without the worry, inconvenience and embarrassment that accompany excessive sweating. The patented formulation that minimizes irritattion forms temporary a gel-plug in the sweat glands preventing the sweat from reaching the surface of the skin.
Simply apply to dry and unbroken skin (remember not to use Perspirex for 48 hours after shaving, waxing or use of depilatories) at night and wash off in the morning with soap and water. Do not re-apply as the effect will last even after a shower. Should you wish to, you can also apply a regular scented deodorant or perfume. This will not affect the efficacy.
Even though I don't have sweat problems, I tried Perspirex Original Anti-Perspirant Roll-On ($19.99 for 25mL) some times ago out of curiosity since I thought it would be amazing to not have to apply deodorant for 3-5 days. While it does work wonders - the protection lasted about three days for me - as soon as the product touched my skin, it burned, stung and itched so much! I did a little pain dance while waiting for the product to dry but the pain is not worth it to me, not to mention that I don't really like the idea of blocking your sweat glands - sweat is natural, after all! I could see how this could be useful for someone having real sweat problems but I guess I am lucky enough to not have to depend on an antiperspirant full of alcohol, aluminium and other chemicals.
