Hi Manila, Mr. Golden sun is rising up in the sky again. I'm sure new things will come our way. New hope and a brighter day awaits us. Smile everyone, we can make it! So now this post is super long overdue. Actually I want to say finally after sixteen months, that's almost a year and a half I will reveal what keeps me from the yucky icky feel. Prolly you know what I mean because the title of this post says it all. Yes, I'm going to share my thoughts about the best among the bestest underarm care that I've used so far. But before you make any reactions and raise your eyebrows or cover your nose ha ha ha! I will tell you that being sweaty runs in the family. It's in our genes. My father sweats a lot but this is not considered excessive. I guess it's because he drink lots of water and a little move specially during summer makes him sweat faster than others. This goes same with my brothers and sisters including me. It's the same reason why sometimes I hate summer. Since we sweat a lot, we need extra protection not only in our face because sweat also leads to pimple infection but with our underarms too.
Sweaty underarms? No way! I had some embarrassing moments during my high school days where I'm very active with school activities. I'm also a volleyball player so it's really normal for me that I sweat a lot during and after the game. I hate it when the arms of my clothes feels wet. There were also times that you can really see that it's wet specially with colored blouses and shirts. So there comes awkward and embarrassing moment. Let me also emphasize that sweaty underarms doesn't mean there's an unpleasant smell. But if you ignored it, doesn't have proper hygiene (e.g. takes bath every other day) and just use an antiperspirant then I guess worse things will happen.
I've tried so many antiperspirants and deodorants in the market before. From cheap to cost-effective ones. I also got tired of trying and testing new brands but a couple of years ago I decided to buy something pricier, something heavy duty to avoid irritation and darkening of my underarms and sometimes chicken skin. I've tried Godiva underarm whitening antiperspirant, Jao Ming underarm all in one underarm cream and Flawless Deo Whitening Antiperspirant. I can say they're all effective but the effect plateaud after I emptied two or three bottles. I searched through different forums and I'm glad that I've found VMV Hypoallergenics Essence Skin Saving Antiperspirant that I really looooooveeeeeee! This is my second bottle and up to now I say it's ahh-mazing after every spray :D

NOTES fr VMV website: Due to high concentration of drying crystals, spray may plug up- remove + rinse under warm running water. Before using any product, test a tiny amount of it on skin (we omit allergens, but you may be sensitive to an ingredient that isn't an allergen). Introduce new products one at a time, with at least 3 days in between to make sure you are not allergic. Do not store in extreme temperatures, or in direct sunlight. Do not (re)introduce removed portions of product, water or other substances into product. As with all things skin, consult your dermatologist.Important: Ask a doctor before use if you have a kidney disease. For external use only on specified areas as directed. Stop use + consult your doctor in the unlikely event of discomfort or sensitivity. If contact with eyes occurs, flush out with plenty of water. Keep out of reach of children. While safe for its intended use, ingesting large amounts of this product - as unattended children may do - is potentially harmful. If this happens, get medical help right away.
