Although I’m not a massively sweaty person I do get that damp underarm feeling, especially in stressful situations (usually work). It means sometimes I can’t wear light coloured tops – there’s nothing worse than that dreaded wet ring!
I am also looking for something to dramatically reduce all things sweaty for my impending wedding. We’re getting married in Cyprus and my dress is definitely not what you’d call a destination wedding dress. It’s huge – so I know the chances are, I’ll end up being a sweaty mess.
I was sent a small packet containing a three day sample and some leaflets about the product. There are various products available from their website, the one I tried was Forte Spray which costs £19.70 for 100ml spray bottle or £15.20 for 50ml roll on bottle
So what is it?

So how does it work?
SweatStop antiperspirants contain aluminium chloride salts which inhibit perspiration by blocking the sweat glands, now although I don’t think this sounds particularly healthy I have had no ill effects from using it.
So what do I do with it?
Obviously mine was a sample packet, but it’s the same kind of thing. You apply to your sweaty area on an evening after washing, before going to bed. The advise that you should abstain from anything that may make you sweat after application – take that how you wish 🙂
I did find that it took AGES to dry, but there was no irritation and it didn’t make my pj top. The following morning you wash is off and use you regular deodorant, after a few days you will be able to reduce how often you apply it on a night. I found after the three days I was completely dry all day, though I was too scared not to wear my usual deodorant as well. Even a hectic day at work and an hour at the gym didn’t cause any dampness.After trying other products such as Driclor, which have caused irritation and sore underarms I am so pleased to have found this. It kept me dry, caused no irritation – it does what it says which is a nice surprise!
