In Focus: These Pinays Spill Their 'Slay And Nay' Underarm Moments!

We all know how your underarms or kilikili can make or break a moment of confidence. Whether you're on your daily commute or heading a client presentation, it's an anti-social suicide SOP to keep your armpits cool and dry!

If you're secure enough to show off your totes flawless and envy-worthy underams, why not? If you're the type who goes the extra mile to hide it, well, you know what you gotta do! Think you've got your own proud (or awkward) kililiki story like the following to share? Buckle up for some serious dose of 'Wow!' and 'WTH?'

Prom Queen? Nope, Just The Flawless Kilikili Queen!

“Prom namin no’n so syempre may dance number ang class namin. Since yung mga steps puro taas kamay, ikot, dapat talaga maputi yung underarms! One of my classmates joked na, 'Oh paputian ng kilikili a!' Na-pressure ako! Pero okay lang kasi confident naman ako with my armpits so todo enjoy ko ang prom! Plus, I get to wear this tube cocktail dress that I really like. So, okay lang if hindi man ako maging Prom Queen. Happy naman ako sa pagiging Confident Kilikili Queen!” -Dom, 24, call center agent

This Very Relatable MRT Horror Story

“I commute kasi everyday tapos yung weather, 'di na rin natin masabi, so I have to choose yung clothes na okay for mainit and malamig na panahon (super lamig din kasi sa office!). Pero syempre minsan, di pa rin maiwasan na di sasakto yung clothes ko sa weather. Like when I wear a long-sleeved colored top tapos super init, ang diyahe sa biyahe, especially sa MRT. Kailangan humawak dun sa hand rails, diba? Eh nakakahiya kasi baka nag-mark na pala yung pawis sa clothes. Ayun, ngayon tuloy limited na lang nasusuot ko. Sayang yung fave ko na mga damit! Di ko masuot without worries.” -Pat, 22, writer

That Winning Kilikili Moment On Stage

“Way back in college, nanalo ang group namin sa isang major competition. Syempre I want to look my best sa pagtanggap ng award sa stage. I was really excited, I searched talaga for the perfect dress! Wala akong worry kahit tube pa yung dress ko. Syempre iba pa rin yung dalang confidence ‘pag flawless ang kilikili! Winning moment + winner na underarms? Achieve!” -Lor, 24, event host

That Kili-Kill Me Now Moment In Front Of The Class

“This one’s not my story—and I hope it will never happen to me, to anyone, and to her ever again. Mainit sa class namin no’n and hindi naman airconditioned yung place. And init na init na siguro yung teacher namin so todo paypay sya sarili nya during our discussion. Then, bigla nyang nataas ang kamay nya and…well, basang-basa na sya. I felt bad for her because my classmates were calling her names and teasing her without her knowledge. And she was just there, all smiles, while teaching. Things like this happen. I just hope na ‘di sya—or anyone—ma-bully because of that.” -Kim, 14, student.

The honest—and much-needed—BFF conversation

“One time, when my friend and I were eating sa school cafeteria, nainitan ako so I decided to tie my hair. The problem? Well, let’s just say na hindi kaputian ang underarms ko and I was wearing a sleeveless top so she had a nice view of my dark secret. She was like, “OMG, alam ba ng jowa mo ‘yan?!” Well, if my boyfriend’s gonna react that way, I hope I’ll be able to solve the situation ASAP.” -Rach, 18, student.

Lesson learned: No one can hide in the dark (pun intended) forever. If you have smooth and fair underarms, then lucky you! But if yours is becoming a major problem like some of these ladies, then it’s about time you ~finally~ deal with it using Rexona Advanced Whitening 2-in-1 deodorant. It contains sunflower seed oil that has up to 2x whitening power and provides 48 hours of freshness so your underarms stay dry and white! With Rexona, there will be no more nay kilikili moments—just awesome #SlayInSleeveless stories to tell!
