Eeew! Underarm Sweats!

One of the embarrassing things that could happen is when you get your shirt wet when you perspire…in your armpits! Especially if you are in date, event or worst, in a formal occasion.

Sweat marks start to be visible in your clothing and you become awkward, refusing to raise your arms , with the hopes of hiding those sweat marks. People start taking photos, and you see in those photos how obvious those sweaty armpits were. urk…

Just this morning I got a glimpse of Carmina and Zoren’s morning show in GMA. And there was this opening number by celebrities from Party Pilipinas. As they were dancing, one of them had this sweaty armpits. I can tell because marks were getting visible in her sweater. Tsk, tsk.  Not even celebrities or public figures are spared from this kind of situation.

Good thing I rarely have those moments 😀

Anyway, I’m just bringing this up because of what I accidentally saw online before while I was in Hong Kong. It’s a Japanese product to give a solution to those sweat marks in your clothing (those Japanese never cease to come up with unique ideas).

Kobayashi Underarm Sweat Sheets

It’s really a simple idea, it’s like a napkin for your armpits.

Come to think of it, sometimes deodorants do nothing to prevent your underarms from producing sweat. You just end up having a wet but fresh-smelling pits.So this Kobayashi Underarm Sweat Sheets could actually at least save you from embarrassment, right?

Because it caught my interest,  I checked if it was available in Hong Kong in those Japanese shops/establishments such as Sogo. And there it was!

Being an interesting product, I bought a few to store it in my Attic. Of course, i got one box for myself also and tried it out.

It felt weird at first because I got worried that my armpits would be sweaty. But duh, why would I worry? I forgot  it’s irrelevant if my unerarms would sweat because it will be absorbed anyway. Well, I’m not just used to stuffing something in my underarms, aside from, of course, a thermometer when i get sick.

Anyway, I wore a shirt with a very light cottony fabric wherein sweat marks could be really obvious. I forgot i was wearing the underarm sweat sheet. At the end of the day, no sweat stains/marks were found.

Effective it is!
