4.0 out of 5 stars Decade long facial sweating problem finally, finally under control, March 16, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: SweatBlock Antiperspirant - Clinical Strength - Reduce sweat up to 7-days per use (8 antiperspirant towelettes)per box (Health and Beauty)
Edit: 4/11/13 for anyone who suffers from a less sever case of hyperhidrosis and finds that Sweatblock is ineffective for them, I've discovered that taking 500mg a day of a sage supplement works wonders. It works so well for me in fact that I no longer use Sweatblock. I can't vouch for how it might effect more sever hyperhidrosis cases, but it might be worth a try. Just a tip.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

At 35 years old, I suddenly developed a problem with ridiculously intense sweating of the face and feet. While the foot sweating was problematic, the facial sweating was outright embarrassing. On the remote chance that it would work, I purchased SweatBlock. I couldn't be more pleased with the results. Since using a tweak I've learned to apply when putting it on, I haven't experienced a single drop of facial sweat in the few weeks since I've been using SB (in one week intervals) in spite of experiencing the occasional sensation of sweating (strange that.) The real test will come when the high temperatures and 95% humidity hit here on the east coast in a few months, but judging by what I've experience up to this point, I'm feeling fairly confident about SBs ability to hold up against them.

I've given the product 4 out of 5 stars because the stinging sensation when applied is, at least for me, fairly significant. However, any potential purchaser should maybe keep in mind that I'm using the product outside of it's recommended use, and that since facial skin is generally more tender than underarm skin, the sensation may be much less pronounced there, if experienced at all.

One last thing: As one of the places that the sweating on my face is localized is my temples, I've found it very useful to extend application of SB to at least an inch past my hairline directly above them. I initially would experience the random ball of sweat coming from those areas before it occurred to me to do this.

Hi K Hall, Can you please share which brand of sage supplement you use? I have tried sage multiple times in the past, and it never worked for me. I'm hoping the brand you use might help, as my sweating seems to be confined only to warm and humid conditions. Thanks. Ruth.tannis@yahoo.com
