Kick Out the Funk
on March 18, 2011
If you sweat like I do, waxy sticks and spray-on deodorants are not your friend. Because of my ability to drip and drench, I end up with one of two formulas:
- goo pushed through a screen
- goo dried up into a powdery stick
Sweat Defense is the first kind: a clear mesh screen at the top and a rotating dial on the base. The product says it just takes 2 clicks to dispense enough, but I find it's more like 3 or 4. It doesn't last as long as the waxy sticks but the point is, it works. Sweat Defense sinks into your skin and stays there a full day. I've had workout days where it even seems to hold up a half hour into my routine. If I'm having an extra-sweaty day (or just need a touch-up after a workout), then two clicks does the trick.
This review was posted under the "Swagger" scent - it's a good masculine smell that reminds me of Drakkar. I stay away from the scents that remind me of Febreeze or cleaning chemicals (like Aqua Reef--ick!) and the cloying citrusy type, so I find "After Hours", "Swagger", and "Showtime" to be the best.
When I was a kid, "Old Spice" meant "cheap after shave"...it's clear nowadays that they've cleaned up their act. I've used their Sweat Defense and Soft Solid for two years now--both are great: I sweat more and fret less.
