Certain Dri Solid Anti-Perspirant review: Did it keep me drier? Find out! (Plus giveaway)

Last week was a scorcher here in Virginia. 100 degree plus heat, with heat indices between 110-120+ for last Thursday through Saturday.  Sunday was slightly cooler with a heat index of about 101!  My deodorant (and air conditioner) were working overtime.  I couldn't imagine sweating like that all the time... how do people with excessive sweating cope?  I recently was given the opportunity to try out Certain Dri, a deodorant recommended by doctors to help patients cope with excessive sweating.  At a price point of $5.50-$6.00, Certain Dri is more affordable than other clinical strength deodorants on the market.

I don't suffer from excessive sweating, but I don't like to sweat at all, so I agreed to give Certain Dri a try.  One thing I noticed as I read the usage instructions is that you are supposed to use it at night.  So, at first, it was a little hard to remember to swipe it on right before bed, but I soon got into the routine.  

Do I feel drier and feel like I am sweating less?  Yes, I do.   I noticed that I felt drier after a few days of use.  I loved that the Certain Dri solid was not a wet roll on.  It felt and applied a lot like my regular deodorant, only perhaps a bit... drier?  Though I don't need this product for a it's main purpose, I do like that I can buy some extra strength anti-perspirant for the dog days of summer when I am going to sweat a lot more than any other time of year.

I did surf around their website and liked that it had a link to Certain Dri Teen.  My niece suffers from excessive perspiration and it was embarrassing for her when she was in high school.  She might have liked the information presented on that site.  They also include a list of retailers where you can buy Certain Dri, such as Walmart and Target.. all places teens can shop fairly easily.
