Amid almost three months of scorching temperatures and sweaty train journeys, everyone has been searching high and low for ways to cool down – with some going as far as to put their socks in the fridge.
And while most of us have endured the heat, wilting away as we try to make it to and from work without looking like we’ve run there, others have grown desperate, trying new methods including eating eggs and even soup in a bid to cool off.
But there is one tried and tested method people are hailing as “life-changing” – Odaban.
Odaban is a £10.49 deodorant that lasts seven days after one application.
With rave reviews online, Odaban promises to banish underarm wetness as well as sweaty feet, palms and even your face.
It is advised the spray is applied only at nighttime and when the skin is very dry.
Those with sensitive skin should apply one or two sprays on a cotton wool pad, before adding a little talc to absorb excess product.
The following morning, the areas treated should be washed and dried.
The product contains active ingredients that partially block pores, creating a drying effect on the skin without blocking the sweat glands or causing irritation.
On Amazon, the reviews are full of praise for the product, with many dubbing it “a life changer”, while some simply said: “Fantastic!”
“I discovered this stuff years ago and it changed my life! Ever since I was 17 I noticed that no matter what anti-antiperspirant I use (even the so-called extra strength ones), I get big wet patches under my arms. In desperation I ordered this and noticed instant results.
“My underarms are bone dry after using this, and personally I find I only have to use it around once per week, so a bottle lasts absolutely ages,” praised one shopper.
Meanwhile, a second said: “I have gone from sporting the drowned rat look to looking as cool as a cucumber (a refrigerated one) and I feel so much happier not having to battle with those awful sweats.”
The spray is available to buy from Boots or Amazon or other pharmacies.
