Not for people who sweat heavily
on 16 May 2013
Note: if you sweat like the average person, this product should work for you. The design doesn't blow me away. It can be a bit tricky to stick the pads because they're flat and the sleeves obviously aren't. Also, the top part is quite short, so may not stick very well. I found that after a while during usage the top bit can come off and become uncomfortable. Best to have a backup pair with you!
So why doesn't it work for me? Well, I sweat a lot more than the average person. Even in the most comfortable of room temperatures, I'd have my sleeves completely soaked under the armpits, specially if I'm wearing a long sleeve shirt. I found that this helped slightly in the beginning of the day, but as the sweating continues, the pads themselves become soaked, and it still shows on the shirt, and the sweat marks are still there. Moreover, they can start coming out, the top bit folds and sticks onto itself creating an itchy feeling under the arm that just makes you want to get rid of them. I've used the first pair and decided this isn't for me. Luckily I found a brilliant anti-perspirant which is the true answer to my problem! But like I said, if you just sweat a bit and want some extra protection when you're out, and don't want to use an anti-perspirant this could work for you.
