Antiperspirant is one of those things that kind of freaks me out sometimes, but at the same rate it is one of those things that must be worn. Sometimes you just don’t want to be seen as Mr. Sweaty Von Armpits. Moreover, there’s even more times when you just don’t want people to get a whiff of you before they actually get to shake hands with you. As I’m sure you’ve heard a million times – you only get one chance to make a first impression (think about that the next time you go to Starbucks in your jammies).
The freaky thing about antiperspirant is the thing that makes it what it is – its ability to keep sweaty zones from becoming sweaty. That, I guess isn’t the freaky thing, the freaky thing happens when you go to wash it off and it defies the great majority of soap and water you throw at it. Freaky or otherwise, sometimes you just have to wear it.
Enter Speed Stick Power antiperspirant. Of all the antiperspirants I’ve used throughout my life, this new Speed Stick really is one of the best. Once it’s on, it’s almost as if it becomes a part of you. It keeps the sweaty days away and it does so without leaving a mark on your shirt.
This stuff works, plain and simple. In fact, I’m pretty sure it works better than any of the claims Colgate-Palmolive places on its packaging or advertising. After a good shellacking with it, this stuff will keep you dry and stink-free for more than 24 hours (easily).
How does it do this? Who knows? Also, who cares? As long as it’s not poison and it does what it is supposed to do, then I think it is A.O.K.
The new Speed Stick Power comes in solid and gel form and four masculine scents:
● Energy Surge
● Ultimate Sport
● Fresh Gel
● Ultimate Sport Gel
