Success!!!!!!!

I do not sweat a lot. I mean, I get sweaty when I'm exercising. I get sweaty when the humidity is 90% and it is 90 degrees outside. I'm pretty average. What I HATE is when I can smell myself. I know, you're thinking "whoa, Terina, TMI". But here is the thing. I think more of us have this problem than we realize. But people don't want to talk about it because it is embarrassing. Well, I have yet to find something that I am embarrassed to talk about.

I have stopped using antipersperiants for a really long time. Nothing good comes out of blocking your body'ssweat glands. And recently I have switched to a more "natural" type of deodorant. But the smell was still there. Some would attribute that to the fact that I have a super smeller right now. But that doesn't matter. I could still smell it.

A few months ago, Matt wanted to find something that would allow him to ride his bike to work, but take care of any "scent" so that he wouldn't have to take another shower once he got to work 15 minutes after he left the house. He found this. He started telling me about it, and I wasn't terribly excited about it. I mean, what deodorant could really take care of the scent of a really sweaty guy in all this humidity?? He ordered it online and was excited to try it when it came. And I was the doubting Thomas of the two. And I just have to say, I used to smell him when he came in the door. But no more. He might be super sweaty, but nary a stink to him. So when I began to experience my smell, I thought, what the heck. I'll give it a try. I went out to the local Harris Teeter not even a week ago. It is $6 there. Boy does this stuff work. It looks so unassuming. But it works I tell you. You still sweat. (everybody sweats just like everybody poops) It just works. I can't say it enough. And it is worth every penny.

I have the same problem...

When Emily worked at Macraroni Grill they had a term called "SWass" for Sweaty Waiter A$$... anyways she said a couple of the waiters had special deodorants they used only for their butts...

I drive to work, that's how I deal with the humidity.

Oh - SWass. That is funny stuff.

Congrats on the success. Hopefully you won't be calling me now to tell me how much you stink.

LOL. This post and the comment thread are cracking me up.

So Terina...Mark has never used deodorant in his life!! He's NEVER had b.o. either. Even after soccer and basketball games he smells fine. Sweaty yes! Smelly? nope. I would say it's the asian gene, but his dad stinks a lot so I rule that one out.
