The Ferrvor Man never fails to give you the entire package. In a discussion at the office this week, one of our readers had asked us if we could give some advice on the best way to properly handle perspiration. We felt obliged, did some research and came up with our own mini-Ferrvor Man’s Guide to Sweat.
Most of us at one time or another find ourselves in a state of diaphoresis, whether you’re knee deep working out, wearing a suit and tie all day in a packed office, perhaps giving a speech, or you in the tropics and find yourself a little moist more often then you’d like to be.
Here’s a quick guide on how to stay drier, stay fresh and keep the sweat at bay, at least until you can hit the shower
Starting with the underarms, here’s some anti some antiperspirants and deodorants we found most useful.
The Sweat Buster: Jack Black Pit Boss
The Staple: Old Spice Swagger
The Refresher: Tom Ford ‘Oud Wood’
The Odor Eliminator: Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant
Now for the sweat downstairs. Here’s a few powered and non-powered solutions that should keep you dry and feeling clean.
First up you have Johnson’s Baby Powder, which leaves the cup of your pants, powdery, but it does the trick for a few hours and has a decent scent, if you want to smell like a baby.
Next up, we scratched the surface with the Axe Detailer. This worked better than baby powder and smelled nicer too.
After a few more tests with solutions like Gold Bond, which is a top contender and a tried and true solution. The unique formula cools and soothes skin while absorbing excess moisture. Gold Bond Body Powder is medicated, yet gentle enough to be used every day. And for our final contender; Fresh Balls. When we first came across this product we were a little skeptical at first, but, after having a few of our male staff give it a go, we have can say with manly confidence that FB keeps you sweat free for the entire day.
Fresh Balls is a lotion that quickly transfigures into a powder once applied on the skin. In this case, it’s a soothing cream that prevents moister on your man parts, while simultaneously giving you a minty fresh sensation. The result: soft skin and less sweat.
So next time you’re feeling a little moisture coming on, grab some Malin + Goetz Eucalyptus Deodorant for the arms and a bottle of Fresh Balls for your underside. We’re confident it’ll keep you confident.
