    well i sweat quite a bit in the winter, so as you can imagine the summer isnt fun for me at all:blush:
    i pretty much live in dark colours so it doesnt show but im getting fairly bored of that now

    any recommendations from anyone for something that actually works but wont leave white marks? i currently use the sure crystal spray but the amount i have to use is stupid and still ends up going white:dohh:

    thanks!:flower:

    ETA i forgot to ssay its the wetness i have the problem with not the smell:haha:

    I find roll ons are better for people that sweat a lot because of the amount you need.

    I have a bit of a sweat problem, I use either dove or sure minerals I think it is? neither of them stop me sweating fully but they do stop quite a lot and they stop me from being whiffy :lol:

    yup its cr*p isn't it, just annoys me that its good enough to stop any smell not wetness, i cant exactly go around naked everywhere, although im sure shops would clear out quick:haha:

    i've tried everything under the sun and couldn't find anything that could work. then finally i was told by a friend to put my deodorant on at night before bed and then to reapply if i needed to (after showering in the morning). it worked!

    i just use a regular stick antiperspirant now, no special brand or anything.

    Have you tried Driclor ?? Its a roll on that you put on at night before you go to bed and it helps to stop sweating completely :) I had a wetness problem a few years back and I used this, you dont have to put it on every night. Now I find if I feel the problem coming back I will use Driclor for a few day and its gone :) But I do use Mitchum every day, you can get it in Roll on or spray but I find the roll on to be the best, it completely stops wetness. :)

    Perspiguard ! swear by it. Its a bit like driclor, where you spray it on at night and lasts up2 5 days. Im a sweater and nothing but this has worked for me. I recommended it to someone on here and it also helped them :)

    Mitcham roll-on! Takes about 5 min to dry though but I fan under my arms with something and that helps lol. I use it every day in the summer, I swear by it now! My mum uses it and when I ran out of my own I used it, when I got in the bath it was like a waterproof layer you had to wash off!

    Words of wisdom- do NOT shave your pits and put on driclor....oh my god it stings!

    I used to use driclor but I like mitchum roll on, I don't sweat half as much with it on.

    I am quite a sweaty person too
