I have to admit that I am embarrassed by my armpits. Before you think that they stink or are really hairy, I want to let you know that’s not the case. My problem is that I sweat more than the average person and often wind up staining my favourite shirts with icky sweat! I have to wear a tonne of antiperspirant to control my sweating and even then it sometimes isn’t enough. I know that I am not the only person out there who has issues with their armpits. It’s not a subject that I readily bring up with people and not even with close friends or family. So when I was given the chance to try Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser, I jumped at the chance.
Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser is a specialized underarm cleanser that is designed to gently yet effectively remove all traces of antiperspirant or deodorant residue with the benefit of no longer discolouring your favourite shirt. As an added bonus, it works great for shaving. Have you ever had the issue with trying to scrub off yesterday’s deodorant and even after you wash the area, it still won’t come clean? This residue is to blame for the discolouration on your shirts. Clarsskin is the first product on the market to address this issue.
What makes this product unique is a patent pending combination of an effective chelating agent with special agents. This complex mixture is specifically designed to remove antiperspirant deodorant residue both efficiently and mildly. So you may ask what’s so special about the chelating agents? Chelating agents have the capability of penetrating the residue left behind by antiperspirant deodorants- including the metallic salts they are made of. It contains only mild ingredients and are free of sulfates, parabens and DEA.
I found it interesting to read the story behind Clarsskin which came about 5 years ago. Anahid Arsharuni was tired of the underarm residue that just never allowed her to feel completely fresh and clean. Her razor was always full of the gunk from her armpits. She always assumed the gunk was from her soap, but later realized it was left over deodorant. This residue consists of metal particles which you do not want to be trapped in your pores. She decided to pursue her own line and met up with a team of professionals to help her develop a product that would help her tackle this issue.
I had the chance to try Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser and see how it would work for me. I am always conscious of my pits and have had to deal with the issue of gunk in my razor too. I have been using this product for the past couple of weeks and love it!! I love how it gets my armpits so clean and leaves me feeling fresh. I apply about a dime size amount and gently massage it in. I then shave my armpit (I need to shave every day or I get really hairy and look like a man!). It easily rinses off and I then go about my morning routine. I still apply my regular deodorant, but I love that I am applying it on a fresh pit.
I also love that it won’t make my sweat stain my tshirts. I have ruined many shirts with yellow sweat stains and have just accepted it as a fact of life. It’s great now that I know I can wear white tops and not have to worry about ruining them. This is an excellent product that anyone can use and it smells great too!
Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser costs $22 for a 120 mL bottle and is available in fragranced and unfragranced. It can be purchased directly from their website.
