Since I can remember, I’ve dealt with excessive sweating (a.k.a. hyperhidrosis). While research regarding the cause is inconclusive for this condition, there seems to be a genetic component. Thanks, Dad. Anyway, not only does the excess sweat impact my underarms, but it also takes its form on my palms and feet—embarrassing, I know. Anyway, my sad sob story aside, as you can imagine, I’ve experienced with a huge assortment of antiperspirants and deodorants over the course of my life, and through trial and error (along with a lot of stained white t-shirts and humiliating sweat rings) I’ve definitely found a few formulas that actually work to keep my sweating under control (…most of the time, that is) and block odors.

When I was younger, I’d often apply my antiperspirant twice (sometimes three) times a day to keep the moisture at bay. While the jury is still out on the health risks antiperspirant may have, applying it three times a day certainly doesn’t seem like a good idea to me. This concern, however, did ultimately lead me to bask on my journey of finding a solid, clinical-strength product that actually helps to keep my underarms nice and dry for longer than just an hour or so. Scroll along to see my favorite, top-performing products that actually deliver what they promise.
