Stinky, dark armpits. We’ve all been there. If you haven’t, thank your fairy godmother, ancestors, and guardian angels, girl – Because. It’s. A. Freakin’. Problem.
That foul, head-spinning scent can hit you while you’re doing the worm at your sister’s wedding, enjoying rooftop drinks with your crushes, or in the middle of a nerve-wracking presentation.
For some lucky babes, a couple of swipes of deodorant help cover the evidence. But for the girlies who are allergic to deodorant or those who don’t like the idea of swiping a deo on their armpits, this can be grueling.
Well, @iam_chloey might just have cracked the code to your deodorant problems. She’s been using these two products on her armpits, and as per her testimonial, they’ve eliminated the stinky underarms issue and given her brighter, even-toned armpits while at it.
Curious to know the magical elixirs she’s been using to pass the sniff test?

Ever since it launched, much talk has surrounded this glycolic acid solution. It delivers prestige results at a drugstore price and, according to @iam_chloey (plus swimsuit.si.com), nixes all your funky armpit smell issues.
It is formulated with a 7% glycolic acid that offers mild exfoliation for enhanced skin radiance and clarity and aloe barbadensis leaf extract that fends off any dryness while eliminating funky odor.
It also contains Panax ginseng that protects your armpits from aging concerns and Tasmania lanceolata fruit extract that targets textural irregularities and minimizes inflammation/itching issues.
Apply it on your armpits with a cotton pad after a shower for optimal results. Some users also suggest putting it on a spray bottle and spritzing it on your underarms instead of using cotton pads.
For girlies looking to brighten their underarms, @iam_chloey swears by this brightening serum.
It contains beta arbutin that gently brightens and targets dullness for visibly clear, even-toned underarms and hyaluronic acid that promotes a healthy, youthful feel without irritation.
