Certain Dri Reviews
Certain Dri is not a single product, but a line of antiperspirants. The “clinical strength” products are Certain Dri Roll-On and Certain Dri Solid, while their “Everyday Strength” items include a scented roll-on and scented stick.
Certain Dri could be called a high-end antiperspirant which contains aluminum chloride, a commonly prescribed to combat excessive perspiration. Despite its pharmaceutical-looking packaging and “clinical strength” claims, Certain Dri is priced just above regular deodorants and antiperspirants.
Reviews for Certain Dri are almost universally positive. At Amazon, nearly 1000 reviewers give it a 4.5-star rating, while at Walgreens it boasts a 4.4 star rating. Our tests of the product yielded impressive results, reducing sweat and leading to less sweat stains on clothing.
We always attempt to include complaints about a product, even if they are a small minority. In the case of Certain Dri, a small minority of users claimed it didn’t work, and even fewer complained of irritation. Indeed, as sweathelp.org points out, products with aluminum chloride “are among the most effective antiperspirants but can cause skin irritation if instructions aren’t followed precisely.”
For the vast majority of consumers, Certain Dri will meet or exceed expectations. Its unanimous high ratings were echoed by our tests. It may not work for a small minority of users, but its competitive cost makes a worthy place to start with sweat reduction.
