Question Over the counter Extra Strength Deodorant

Hi ladies, I have a cousin who works as an airframer repairing part on airplanes in a factory and she has been asking me about finding out for her an over the counter extra strength deodorant. Because of her job she is always sweating and plus she works in the desert so that makes it worse. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks

Izel

lady's mitchum is supposed to be the strongest over the counter you can buy. I used it and found it like unnaturally drying. Their slogan is, "It's so effective you could skip a day". So in the shoer it's like hard as hell to scrub it off because it works TOO good

She could try Certain Dry. It is a strong antiprespirant that she can find at drugstores. You apply this at night, and don't need to reaply in the morning. It is not a deodorant, so she will still need to use one.

I've heard a TON of good things about Certain Dry. I would do that first. I used to have anxiety/panic attacks and I couldn't keep my underarms dry.. I tried all the regular stuff. I didn't know about certain dry then. I think you can get it at WalMart or Walgreens.

I agree with Vlasik and Sanibelle. I swear by Certain Dri. Just put a little on at night, it'll close the pores so that you don't sweat, and put regular deodorant on the morning. Voila, no pit stains.

My husband perspired TERRIBLY, and nothing he used really helped, not even Mitchum. I read on here last month about Certain Dri, so I bought him both. For the first time in his life, he does NOT perspire. Even I was skeptical it would help him but oh my, it certainly did, he raves about it. You put it on at night - my husband didn't know this and was using it in the morning after his shower and then told me it didn't work, just like he figured. When he told me how he was using it, I corrected him and said to use it at night like it says. Ever since, no perspiring. Some poeple on here also use Arrid XXXXXXXX in the morning to further help, though my husband is fine using his favorites.

Hope this helps her.
