I was first introduced to the Perspirex Antiperspirant brand through a free sample I got some time ago. It's a Danish product and I had no idea of its existence before then, but since I had it on my hands, I thought I might as well give it a try.
1. It works.
I have used quite a number of deodorants and body spray over the years, and I haven't liked any of them as much as Perspirex Antiperspirant. Using deodorants or body sprays may feel great for the first few hours of application, but if you are the type who tends to sweat a lot, you'll probably still worry about how you are going to smell at the end of the day. But personally, since using Perspirex, I worry about it much, much less.
You might ask, what's the difference between antiperspirants, deodorant, and body spray?
To put it simply, antiperspirants reduce sweat. Deodorants prevent odor-causing bacteria from forming, whereas body sprays simply mask odor.
Neither deodorant nor body spray reduce sweating, and the smell of deodorant and body spray will likely mix with your own body odor throughout the day, whereas in my experience, this is not the case with Perspirex Antiperspirant.
2. You only have to apply it once every few days.
Another great thing about Perspirex Antiperspirants is that you do not have to apply it every single day. The exception is of course when you use it for the first time, or the first time in a long time; where you should apply it once in 2 days or so in the first week or two. But after that, you should apply it only once every few days. In my case, I usually find that I only have to reapply it once a week because of its long-lasting effect.
There are three types of Perspirex Antiperspirants available: Original, Comfort, and Strong. The only type I have used is Perspirex Plus, so I would recommend try using that for a start (Perspirex Plus is now replaced by Perspirex Comfort).
3. It is a unisex product.
In case you are still wondering, yes, Perspirex is a unisex antiperspirant. It is also non-scented, and you can still use perfume, cologne, body sprays, or other scented deodorants if you like, without reducing its efficacy.
What You Should Know
Apply it at the right time
The product instruction suggests that you apply it on dry, unbroken skin at night or before you sleep; because your sweat glands are less active during those times, and this product works better under such circumstances. You should also avoid applying it to freshly shaven skin (wait a day or two after your shaving regimen).
The active ingredient in Perspirex Antiperspirants is Aluminum Chloride Hexahydrate. It also contains alcohol which reduces odor development, and since alcohol is already a disinfectant, the product does not contain additional preservatives.
Perspirex Antiperspirant contains ingredient to mitigate possible skin irritation. I did not get any skin irritation using it, but like all other skin products, it is possible that some people might. If it happens, discontinue use.
Despite the product coming in a relatively small bottle, it is going to last you for quite some time because it is not meant to be applied every day.
