The Action Cream "helps prevent sweat rash and chafing and is ideal for use before exercise and also acts as an antiperspirant and a protective emollient". Neat 3B suggest you use it between the legs, between the breasts and between the buttocks. While I don't have many problems with the latter two, I do admit, I need help when it comes to my thighs. So did it work for me? Sadly no. I ended up with a massive heat rash just the same as I would've without using anything. I was dubious from the start as the cream doesn't feel at all slippery and therefore doesn't help with creating more slippage between my thighs. Maybe you're supposed to reapply it during the day, but as the packaging said use 1-2 times a day I decided to do that and see how it works. I also applied it between and under my boobs, but they don't tend to rub together so I didn't see any advantage to using the cream. I also didn't notice less sweating.
I'll tell you what does work for me though, I use Vaseline on my thighs and it basically makes them slide rather than rub together. I do have to reapply quite frequently, but it does help. Anyway, maybe I will do another post on that one.
I also need help in the face sweating department, in fact I'm a Sweatty Betty over all, so I thought I'd give Neat 3B Face Saver Gel a go as well. You're supposed to use it under your usual moisturiser and make up and it should "help prevent excess facial perspiration". The gel itself is unscented, a clear gel that is fairly easy to spread but take a while to sink in. I did find my face remain a bit sticky after using it. Sweating wise I do think it helped, I walked to a friends (about a mile) in hot sunshine and while my face was a bit sweaty, my make up wasn't melting off it. I can't say I didn't sweat at all, but I definitely saw a difference. I have to say though I wasn't very keen on the sticky feeling it left on my face and would probably not bother with it too much in the future.
Neat 3B Action Cream and Face Saver Gel are both available from Express Chemist. Action Cream costs £8.19 for 75g and Face Saver Gel costs £9.89 for 50g.
