Beauty Review: Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser

| March 25, 2009 | 23 Comments

Hello beautiful people. Wait…..don’t tell me that you haven’t heard of an underarm cleanser. Surely you jest!

Okay, I’m not even ‘gon lie. Until trying Clarsskin’s, I haven’t heard of one either. What exactly is the point of this stuff? Isn’t it the same thing as body wash?

“I don’t get it, B! Please explain.”

I’m on it. I guarantee that by the time you finish reading this post, you may consider trying a product like this.

Introducing….

Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser

Price: 2 out of 5 ($22 for a 4 oz bottle)
Packaging: I can dig it! I wish it was a little bigger though.
Overall: 4 out of 5


What it claims:
Clarsskin Underarm Cleanser contains a unique patent pending combination of an effective chelating agent with special agents. This complex mixture is specifically designed to remove antiperspirant deodorant residue, efficiently and mildly.” (source)

The truth:
It works!

What I loved about it: It really gave my underarms a different kind of clean. And it’s a pretty groovy shower gel as well!

What I didn’t like:
I suppose the price is a little steep considering the bottle isn’t so big. It will go quickly because you will use it as often as you use body wash or soap.

Overall:
I know what you’re thinking. And like you, I was a little skeptical about an underarm cleanser but it REALLY works. Deodorant has a way of REALLY sticking to the pits, doesn’t it? And no matter how hard you scrub, sometimes it doesn’t come off. And of course over-scrubbing causes irritation. Clarsskin is pretty cool because it removes that residue. Completely. I can see it working for men in particular. Most of our guys have hairy pits and I would imagine that Clarsskin would remove every trace.

It also doubles as a slick shower gel! I got a close shave with this stuff. Yall know how much I love multi-purpose products.

This product is for you if you really have an issue with removing deodorant from your underarms. You can find out more about Clarsskin HERE.

What do you think? Sound like a product you could get some use out of? Or not so much?

    I hate that residue that antiperspirants leave behind. That’s why I had to switch to a natural deodorant. I found one that not only works for me, but for my bf as well!

  2. Linda says:

    I do hate the residue. Sometimes it just sticks so much. This is a really cool product and I can’t wait to try it!

  3. Askmewhats says:

    Oh no, no to residue for me, but this is interesting! thanks B :)

  4. Shefali says:

    That is freakin’ amazing! Why didn’t I think of this idea?! I use scrubs under my arms to get the deodorant off, but it’s never 100%. I’m so buying this!

  5. The Asian Girl says:

    Wow, that’s useful…but too ‘spensive for me.

  6. ...:::BEAUTIFUL...BROWN...SKIN:::... says:

    IDK about this one. I felt pretty confident with the ability to clean my own pits ever since my mom entrusted me to do so alone!! LOL!! I nominated you for an award!! Go to my blog and check, check, check it out!!

  7. Bsquared86 says:

    sounds interesting but 22 bucks? yikes!

  8. yummy411 says:

    yes i would. i change deo’s about every month or 2 just because my body ‘adjusts’ to the deo (doesn’t work anymore) and needs a new fresh scent. thanks for the heads up, but yeh i need a more cost effective product. $22 for the pits.. is the pits! ha!

  9. Miss Pretty says:

    22 bucks is a little steep! Ill stick to scrubbing.

  10. Kimboo says:

    I use sea breeze or alcohol to remove the residue. But the trick is how to get it out of clothes.I buy so many white shirts b/c of this, please help. Sorry the product seem like it might be good but the price is to high :)

  11. rmcandlelight says:

    I use Dr Bronners peppermint soap but it doesn’t remove the deodorant residue. I tried Ivory soap and it removed the buildup. That Clarsskin is a very good idea for arm pits :D Thanks for sharing.

  12. Wes says:

    It sounds good… But $22? Ehhh…

  13. Earthtoned Glamgoddess says:

    WOW…okay, it does make sense, I may try it when I have a little extra cash to play with. When I get the deodorant residue, I usually just use a sugar scrub to get it off.

  14. Milan Angel says:

    Sounds interesting. I may give it a try with summer coming up…

  15. Product Junkie Diva says:

    I like the idea of this product. I need to get it. Antiperspirants have aluminum so i need something to remove the buildup I cant see.
    thanks B

  16. post-itnote says:

    I am a little skeptical – what is in this “patent pending” mix that makes it so effective?

  17. Anonymous says:

    It does sound intriguing, but I dunno, and this one kinda solves a problem I didnt really realize I had. I usually just apply soap (shower gel doesnt really work well for the pits for me) at the beginning of the shower, and rinse it off at the end, leaving it a few minutes to melt the deodorant away. It works! lol

  18. Lori says:

    What about using a clarifying/chelating hair shampoo (a cheap one like Paul Mitchell’s Shampoo Three, for swimmers) instead? Maybe a shampoo would be too gentle because it’s formulated for hair? I dunno.

  19. Glamouricious says:

    I like the idea of the product but would rather save my money for something else.

    I use a loofah/spong + shower gel to remove dead skin, residue and shave.:p Multipurpose or what?

  20. Nina says:

    Lori took the words right out of my mouth. I’m going to give my shampoo a try and see if it does the trick. According to beautybrains, chelating shampoos are supposed to bind with minerals so they don’t deposit on your hair or scalp. The water here is SUPER hard, so now I’m considering looking for chelating agents in my body wash too. Why oh why did Johnson’s stop making their baby oil body wash? I think that used to get the residue off too, but it might’ve also been the shower gloves.

  21. Anonymous says:

    I read http://www.clarsskin.com and the product is innovative. I think that this is a specialty product specifically for underarms (not bodywash), since it says to use a dime size amount product. If you think about that the shelf life of the product is at the least 3 months so the price point is not bad for daily use for 3 months.

    Peppermint/Mint is good for the pits. Dr. Bronner all the way…no weird “patent pending” formula.

  23. Savvy says:

    I’ve had issues with the deodorant build up on my pits. I just use a cheap clarifying shampoo (like suave) and it gets rid the buildup.
