Driclor Super Deodorant Review with images

AdvantagesFree from sweaty arm pits

DisadvantagesBit of a tingly feeling

"...decided on trying Driclor. What is Driclor -? Driclor is an anti-perspirant designed to help excessive perspiration; it is a clear liquid roll- on. It contains Aluminium Chloride which is (for all those that don't know) an anti-perspirant that helps control sweating. It does this by blocking your sweat glands and then releases the sweat naturally through other areas of your body. Quite ingenious really. How to apply Driclor - It comes ..." Read review

No Sweat Peace Of Mind

AdvantagesEffective, long-lasting protection, no white marks, small amounts needed so it lasts a while

DisadvantagesItching

"...tempting, do not reapply. Because Driclor is quite powerful to combat excessive sweating, the frequency of use is a little different too. At first, apply this every night until you find daytime sweating to be under control and then reduce the frequency of application. I think I used this every day for about a week, then reduced it to every other day for a week, and now I use it maybe 2 times a week. It will vary across individuals as to how often ..." Read review

Sweaty Armpits Vs Armpits of Fire? - You decide.

AdvantagesStops sweating for some people

DisadvantagesEverything you will read below

"...away. I brought my bottle of Driclor in Boots and it cost me £5.99 for a 20ml bottle. This might sound expensive but as it is in effect a roll on deodorant of sorts, this bottle should last quite a long time. This leads me to the first gripe I have though. When you open the box it comes in, you will find that you have to actually put the bottle together. They supply you with the bottle of deodorant with a lid on it and then the roller ball separately. ..." Read review

Perspiration Elimination

AdvantagesStops excessive swaeting, reasonably priced

DisadvantagesCan cause skin irritation

"...recommended a product called Driclor. Driclor is a roll on product made up of aluminium chloride available from the chemists and can be bought off the shelf without prescription or online if you feel uncomfortable or embarrassed buying it (quick and easy) and it costs between £3.99 and £5.99 for a 20ml bottle (cheap) That's all but one box tickedÖunfortunately the painless box gets a resounding cross! (Sorry if I've spoiled the ending for you now!) What ..." Read review

Driclor To Dry Pits

AdvantagesPrevents excess sweating

DisadvantagesPricey but worth it

"...lot of reviews before purchasing Driclor as the idea of blocking my sweat glands didnít feel very healthy or good for the body. But at the end of the day, it stopped the problem of sweating. The first time I used this product my armpits itched and itched. It was an uncomfortable night, but I had expected some minor irritation from the reviews I had read. After that the product didnít cause me a problem at all, until I forgot I had shaved one morning. ..." Read review

Driclor : Does the job but at a cost

AdvantagesDoes decrease sweating

DisadvantagesItching, burning sensation

"...a go. I settled on Driclor after reading the reviews on here, and I bought mine with minimal embarassment from the chemist for £4.49 on special offer. I'd seen the cautions about not using too much and also read about the potential side effects (itching, burning sensations) so it was with a little trepidation that I opened the box ready to use. As per recommendations I made sure my armpits were dry and I hadn't shaved them for over 24 hours, ..." Read review

Driclor Stops That Sweat

AdvantagesIt actually works.

DisadvantagesSometimes stings, can bleach clothes, you use it in conjuction with another deodorant.

"...see. Eventually, a friend recommended driclor to me. ===Packaging & Contents=== It comes in a white box and isn't particularly obvious. I had to look quite hard to actually find it. It also has a pale blue pattern of bubbles on it (probably to represent the sweat that it combats). On the front it states that it combats excessive perspiration which suggests it's a bit more "hard-core" than your average deodorant. This deodorant actually contains ..." Read review

Driclor - Industrial strength Anti-Perspirant - Worth the hassle

AdvantagesCompletely stopped sweating

DisadvantagesStings like hell if you don't use correctly

"==Background== So, after 3 years of sheer embarrassment I decided to go to the docs about my HH problem. Years of not being able to wear several T-Shirts in my collection, and many bleached pits, are now in the past. I've always been sceptical about things like this, and have tried every standard connotation of 'anti-perspirant' deodorant known to man; so I wasn't particularly hopeful about this one either. But that's where my pessimism was curbed. ..." Read review

A product which really works!

AdvantagesIt really works! Will leave you sweat free for days!

DisadvantagesCan sting if you apply to much!

"...it, how much for?== I purchased Driclor from Boots which cost me £7, a little pricey for such a small deodorant, I initially thought... ==First Application== I read the instructions and applied Driclor last thing at night. However what I think the instructions were lacking from was how much to apply. Obviously I was excited to think that this product could stop my sweating completely and therefore applied quite a bit of Driclor. BIG MISTAKE! After ..." Read review

Never fear, Driclor is here! Never sweat again! Review with images

AdvantagesWorks instantly, No perspiration at all, Never sweat again, Saves embarassment

DisadvantagesMild tingling sensation, fairly costly

"...but this soon disappeared. As Driclor had worked so well on my underarms, I decided to test it out on other areas of my body. At first I tried my back and found excellent results. I also tried my general neck area and chest and found it very effective there too. I have yet to try it on my face as I have sensitive skin, but I have no doubt that it will reduce sweating there too. I tried Driclor on my palms with slightly less successful results ..."

Driclor sweat review

AdvantagesStops sweat

DisadvantagesStings if not careful with.

"...up, literally!! Anyway. I tried Driclor this Monday; I bought it from a local chemist. All I can say is, amazing!!! Like most people have said, it stings. But I think I was like the rest of us idiots, I tried shaving my pits in hope that less hair would help, then read about Driclor online that night, so bought straight away, and the following night put it on. Now I had never shaved my pits before, so of course it was tingly just from trying ..." Read review

No sweat! (Literally!)

AdvantagesExtremely effective at combating excessive perspiration.

DisadvantagesMay cause skin irritation.

"...day. At first, you should use Driclor at night, until sweating stops during the day. You may then find you can cut down its use to twice weekly, then to once weekly, and very possibly less often. I am now at a point where I only need to apply it once every 4 weeks, so apart from working like a dream, it is also very economical. Perhaps you are now thinking this sounds too good to be true? All I can say is it has freed me from embarrassingly wet ..." Read review

Driclor works!

Advantagesvery effective

Disadvantagesnone, if used properly

"...normal roll on deoderant. My experience: Putting Driclor on the first night, everything seemed fine, until about half an hour later when my skin was itching and burning quite painfully. In the end i couldnt help but scratch it a little and the itching kept me awake for most of the night. Now here is the important bit, where i beleive i went wrong - DO NOT use too much of this product. Apply very sparingly to the centre of the underarm. One or ..." Read review

Dry in 2 days!

AdvantagesToo many to mention - fantastic product!

DisadvantagesHurts a little putting it on at night

"...gave me a prescription for Driclor (I had never heard of it before). I promptly went to the chemist, who told me you can buy this over the counter at £4.99. Better than £7!! I was quite excited to get in that night and try it hoping that after reading other stories, this would be the cure I was looking for. Along came bed time and I washed carefully so as not to scratch myself, and applied some Driclor under each arm, being careful not to use too ..." Read review

Never worry about sweat again!

AdvantagesWorks instantly

DisadvantagesCan cause some people irritation

"...work for me, and with driclor i know i will not sweat anyway! This did not cause me any irritation at all, i think this is used for underarms only, as my boyfriend tried it on his back, even though i warned him not to, and he had a really bad rash for days. Driclor is an amazing product and it is highly recommended for anyone who is embarrassed by their sweating whether it is only a little or excessive, give this product ago, you wont regret ..."
