A couple of weeks ago I introduced you to my Sure Maximum Protection challenge. You can read my little introduction HERE. Taking on CrossFit to get in shape for my wedding in the United States next month, I’ve been putting Sure’s new Clean Fresh deodorant through its paces to test the claim that it’s really 2 x stronger than other deodorants.
My daytime involves working as a Psychologist in a busy hospital setting. Rather than spending all my time sitting in the therapist’s chair I’m often running around between wards and patients. Come the evening you can find me at CrossFit, a gym for people who share the core values of community, energy and results – and a hard hitting workout to boot; strength and barbell lifts along with gymnastic movements and holds often performed against the clock.
Sure’s Maximum Protection range boasts four a 48hr antiperspirant deodorant made with a special formula designed to enhance wetness protection. Now for the science part, Blog Reader. When applied at night as Sure recommends, the formula adapts to the body by forming a deep layer of protection across sweat glands to reduce the embarrassment of wet patches the following day.
I used Clean Fresh for over a week which included three CrossFit training sessions. If you’re busy, strong and like to be challenged physically with a work out you need to consider this product. It is a different deodorant. The cream is especially moisturizing which is great for someone like me who has dry skin. I didn’t get any of the usual ‘clumps’ coming off on my underarms as I’ve found happening with cream-based deodorants in the past which is a plus for my clothes too.
The weirdest thing for me to get used to was applying the product at night-time and then feel confident that I’d stay clean and fresh the next day. But I did, Blog Reader, and I made it all through workouts like this…
3 rounds as fast as you can:
21 x kettlebell swings
12 x pull ups
…without my armpits declaring to the world how much hard work I had to do just to finish! You know, I think this also gave me the confidence to work harder… often the perception is that sweat = results, therefore I found myself feeling I could workout faster each time. Maximum Protection really stood up to the test of being 2 x stronger than other deodorants when put under pressure. I’m still going to CrossFit. And I may well be wearing Sure on my wedding day too
