Excessive sweating – also known as hyperhidrosis – is a condition which around 4% of the population live with. Surveys also point to more than half of us commonly experiencing problems with sweating and odour; for example, stains under the armpit area. These embarrassing sweat stains are so common that so are the multitude of ways people try to keep them hidden from view.
On the lookout to find a more effective antiperspirant than those high street brands on the supermarket shelves that we use without a moment’s hesitation, our attention was drawn to the number one antiperspirant on Amazon.co.uk, Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant.
We began our search reading horror stories about products people had purchased hoping to end years of misery caused by excessive sweating. Many of the products we looked at had pages of bad reviews, leaving customers with rashes, itching and no end to the dreaded BO. But Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant was different.
For the purposes of this review, we got our hands on Perspi-Guard Sweat Defence, a “complete solution” boxset which contains Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant along with Perspi-Guard Antibacterial Odour Control Bodywash in order to treat both excessive sweating and body odour. Both products are also available separately.
The instructions for Perspi-Guard Sweat Defence suggest that in order to treat excessive sweating and body odour, you begin by cleansing the body of odour-causing bacteria. This can be done daily with Perspi-Guard Antibacterial Odour Control Bodywash, which can be used by men and women of all normal skin types. It can be applied to all areas of the body, including the underarms, feet and groin.
Unlike regular body washes, which often only deodorise the problem areas for a short time, Perspi-Guard Antibacterial Odour Control Bodywash deals with the root cause of the problem. Scientifically formulated to treat bromhidrosis – the medical name for problem body odour – it contains Triclosan, which targets and reduces the odour-causing bacteria that build up on the skin during sweating.
We found that it instantly gave a cleaner feel post-drying in comparison to usual cosmetic brands. After washing, there was a distinct fresh smell a little like talcum powder.
STEP TWO – THE ANTIPERSPIRANT
When suffering from excessive sweating, you need to fight back with a strong antiperspirant. Designed specifically for hyperhidrosis, Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant is so powerful it only needs to be applied once or twice a week – so you don’t need to top up during the day.
We tested Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant for an entire month, just to make sure our results were fair, and accurate. With the current spells of rainy, hot and humid summer days, it’s been a pretty good testing environment you could say.
In addition to great results, it’s also gentle on the skin, unlike other high strength antiperspirants – meaning that it can be used as an alternative to regular antiperspirants. Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant Spray is unscented, and designed for use by both male and female users of all normal skin types.
Perspi-Guard Maximum Strength Antiperspirant is a seriously good alternative to high street brands. With 100% guaranteed results or your money back, we would recommend that you give it a try.
