As much as I hate to admit it I sweat like crazy and I have a hard time finding a deodorant that works. I remember when I worked a dentist office being under the bright lights all day I would have pit stains and not smell so fresh. WOW talk about embarrassing so I immediately shopped for new deodorant. After four or five woman's deodorants I couldn't find one that worked for me so I used a man's for a while. Thanks to perfume, I didn't exactly smell like a man but I sure didn't feel feminine using a man's deodorant. But compared to pit stains and BO smelling like a man's deodorant was better than smelling "manly" if you know what I mean. When Degree came out with a woman's deodorant and I was so grateful that it worked. I dried cleared but it did leave white marks on several of my clothes in the morning but I dealt with the mess.
I have never really thought about trying another deodorant and I was scared to try others fearing they wouldn't work. When I got the Secret 24 Hour Outlast in my SpringFever voxbox from Influenster I gave it a try. It's little black dress approved because it won't leave white marks. Honestly I'm very careful not to ruin my little black dress with white marks, it's the everyday black shirts that get the stains. I hate that because then you either have to scrub the stain off or change. Who has time for that in the morning? Plus white marks will run up your dry cleaning bill.
When I pulled the Secret out of the box the first thing I noticed was how good it smells. It has a feminine, floral smell which I adore. I was little hesitant t because it is a gel and I was afraid it would feel funny under my arms. The first time I put it on it was different but nothing I couldn't handle and it dried very quickly. The deodorant itself is clear so it goes on clear and stays clear. It doesn't feel sticky or gooey plus it leaves no deodorant balls to haunt me when I wear sleeveless. The wonderful smell lasts all day I have smelled it even after getting out of the pool.
I applied Secret once a day in the morning and lasted throughout my busy day -- 10 hours of work, a brisk walk on my breaks, cooking supper, washing dishes, helping with homework, then putting the kids to bed all of that with no odor, wetness, or pit stains. I recommended it to someone who wore it on a two and half hour job interview and she stayed dry. For weeks now I have worn Secret without being let down and that says a lot in Louisiana summer. I would wear this deodorant under any circumstances with confidence and I think you can too.
Even though I was not in the market for a new deodorant I found one that works better then my former favorite. I give this an A++ and will continue to buy Secret Outlast Clear. I would recommend it to friends and family. It sells for around $4.59 so it's equivalent to it's competitors.
I saw a deodorant sponge the other day when I was shopping and I thought I'm so happy I don't need that anymore. I'm also so glad I don't have to do the Deo dance anymore but it pretty funny to watch this dance check it out here. If you want to see what other Influenster members think here's a link
