What’s the difference between antiperspirant and deodorant? Some guys just don’t know, and there’s no shame in that.
Deodorant is a substance applied to the body to prevent body odor caused by the bacterial breakdown of perspiration in armpits, feet and other areas of the body. A subgroup of deodorants, called antiperspirants, affect odor as well as prevent sweating by affecting sweat glands.
Even though antiperspirants are a sub-species, they offer an additional layer of effectiveness. Sure, deodorant smells good, but it doesn’t protect you from sweating in the first place. And nothing ruins the look imbued by that $200 Calvin Klein dress shirt when visible sweat stains are pouring out of your underarms.
Plus, who wants to go to the store and buy some Certain-Dri? That’s straight emasculating, yo. Even though I’ve “heard” it works.
Brut supplied me with two flavors of its new antiperspirant, which now offers 48 hours of protection: Stamina and Overdrive.
What’s funny about Overdrive is that it has a subtle, almost floral scent. My 7-year-old daughter took a whiff and said, “That smells like a flower.”
When she inhaled some of the Stamina scent, she said, “That smells powerful.” And it’s true; Stamina was more forthright, more direct. Overdrive is subtle, yet crisp — fun and fruity.
So now that your underarm game is straightened out, what about your wig? Pert Plus New Thickening 2-in-1 wants to be your Valentine.
I’ve used Pert Plus before, way back. I used to think it was just for old people; it smelled like a clinic, it’s unseemly green bottle tucked away at the very back of the shower ledge for years. But a couple years ago, Pert Plus Classic Clean went strong to the bucket. The thickening agent is the latest new addition to a classic line.
Pert Plus was actually the first 2-in-1 shampoo & conditioner on the market, back in 1987, when “Three Men and a Baby” was king.
The new Thickening 2-in-1 features a pH-balanced fortifying formula that strengthens and boosts density for hair that looks and feels two times thicker.
Enriched with caffeine, hydrating vitamins and protein-dense minerals, Thickening 2-in-1 moisturizes and helps improve fine or thinning hair. It may even strenghten your mustache to new Tom Selleck-esque levels. The new formula features the new scent “Rapid Rush,” a fresh, cool and masculine fragrance.
Just like before, I was really impressed with the new Pert product, and I also used it as a body wash once again because its contents were so robust. I used it for almost two months and I’m not even a third of the way through the bottle. For just north of $3.00 at a fine retailer near you, it’s a steal.
