Buy it buy it!

Of all the products I've used, this is the only product that suits me. I even recommended this to my mom and she loved it. We're both suffering from excessive sweating of armpits so this is a life saver! It doesn't smell, no yellow marks or whatsoever. Totally thumbs up!

Best ever! I use it on my feet, too!

I first heard of this from a friend who swears by it, but back then, I wasn't enthused by the idea of using roll ons and sprays on my underarms because I don't like the wet feeling and the thought of having to dry it out. A few months later, I dropped by VMV to buy some stuff for my mom and remembered my friend's recommendation. I don't think i'll be using another antiperspirant ever again! It's unscented, which i prefer and it really keeps my underarms dry all day. I eventually got used to the spraying and drying process, too. I have very sweaty feet that end up becoming smelly when I wear closed shoes so I also started spraying this on my feet every morning and surprise, my feet don't sweat and smell anymore! The ingredients aren't my preference, but it's derma tested so I feel safe using it. It doesn't dry my skin, too. I'd say it's more expensive per ml compared to other similar local products, but it's worth it! I bought my first bottle 5 months ago and I still have a long way to go. Value for money for sure!

not only for underarm, but for clammy hands as well

been experiencing hyperhidrosis ever since i was born which makes me sweaty in some parts that are not supposed to be sweaty - underarms, hands, feet. The product says anti perspirant and it does effectively control production of sweat and leaves you odorless the whole day. i use it for my hands too and i get less clammy even when im nervous. if it works for the hands, i bet it works for the feet too. although steep price for a deo. but hey, if its effective why not right?

Great antiperspirant, but might make the area dry for sensitive skin

I've been looking for a deodorant that has the power to keep my dry all day, and this is definitely it! I sweat a lot and on my first application I was surprised that I felt my pores tighten and that I didn't sweat nor smelled at all, even at the end of a long day. Been using this for a week now, it might dry the area out a little bit, so I suggest keeping it down to just one pump per underarm. I tried it with two-three and it just dries me out, making my skin feel flaky. Right now, it's looking pretty good. I'm still trying to see if it'll have any effect on color and texture of my underarms. Overall, it's a very pleasant find and I'd buy it again. I think it's worth the price.

Good Anti-perspirant

What I love about this anti-antiperspirant is that it is natural and it doesn't make my pits smell like anything at all. I'm a VERY sweaty person and so I feel really conscious all the time. I like walking to school and every time i do, I get so sweaty that my shirt is already wet with sweat by the time I get to school. It's such a turn off, but with this I feel very confident and I don't feel worried about sweat at all. I use it on my underarms and sometimes even my back when I have to. It is really hard to rinse off though, which is fine because it only means you are really protected against sweat.

Yep. It works.

It is kinda pricey. Yes. But definitely worth purchasing. I purchased one for my partner because he really perspires alot. The essence lasted for more than 12 hours and it did not irritate his sensitive underarm. He is really happy about it. He would probably use it for months because he need not to spray alot and the bottle is kinda big.
