    Default Clinical deodorant - anyone else underwhelmed?

    Tried this for the first time today - smelly armpits by 6pm

    Pretty sure you're meant to use it overnight? Have you read the instructions? Not something you'd normally need instructions for but check it out!

    Just said to apply to underarms so I put it on at 6:30am after showering. Was hoping to get 24 hours. It is hot and humid and tho the sweat factor is reduced I still smell yuck - thank goodness for impulse

    Check the box - the rexona clinical is for overnight and you use regular in the day.

    Impulse doesn't have any antiperspirant in it I don't think.

    Have you considered getting botox in your armpits? Sounds extreme, but DS suffers extremely heavy sweating which no product can help (we tried rexona clinical as well, he had sweat marks through his shirt 30 minutes later), so his paed suggested botox. We didn't actually go through with it as DS didn't like the idea of injections in his armpits (I don't blame him) but the paed assured me it would stop the sweating for 6 months.

    The body odour is caused by sweat mixing with bacteria on the skin. If you stop the sweat you will eliminate the odour.

    I've never tried the clinical ones - just don't believe the hype.
    I tried rexona crystal a while ago and have been using it ever since - works really well for me! Some friends have had success with a deodorant stone, you can get them in health food type stores.

    It works a treat DH is a profuse head sweater and is bald to boot so it just pours off him.
    He gets his head done (from what would have been his hair line back) twice a year.
    Only thing with anything like Botox or the clinical deodorants.... The sweat has to come out somewhere!
    I used the rexona one on a trip to SE Asia, my arm pits were bone dry but ended up with prickly heat rash as the sweat couldn't escape.....
