Let's Talk About Pits, Baby
Let's talk about deodorant. We all use it. We all sweat. I used to not. But now, whew, those days are gone. I'm not sure if it's because I'm a heavy woman or because I'm getting older or what. But I sure sweat now. And it grosses me out. I'm always trying out new scents and brands of deodorants. But I always use the "invisible solid". Ha. Like there really is such a thing. So Naturally when I got the chance to try a new deodorant for FREE, I jumped at it.
I've never been a fan of the ooey, gooey, messy gel. Scratch that. I hadn't actually tried it, until I got Secret Outlast Completely Clear Gel, free in the mail to try. The first thing I noticed was the refreshing scent. It's fragrant but not overpowering. That's a definite plus. So I clicked the dial a couple of times and applied it to my pits. When I first put it on, I thought ew, ew, ew. No way, this is not for me. BUT as the day went on I noticed a difference. I keep a spare deodorant in my purse because often I have to reapply midday. This day, I didn't have to. Whoa! Huge plus! The next day I dreaded the cold, wet slime going under my pits, but I agreed to try this product and I wasn't stopping after one day. So I gritted my teeth and gasped when the slick, cold gel collided with my skin. Moments later the assault was forgotten and I was feeling fresh as a daisy. And I didn't have to reapply at all that day. In fact I haven't had to reapply midday in the nearly 3 weeks I've been using it. Now I hardly even notice the cold sting of applying it. Maybe because I know it's totally worth it. We haven't even gotten to plus number 3 yet. You won't believe this... NO WHITE MARKS! Yep, that's right. It really is COMPLETELY CLEAR. Go ahead pull out that little black dress, I promise, you will not have to worry about deodorant marks.
Although Secret claims 48 hour protection, I haven't been quite able to make myself go that long with out showering/applying deodorant. But I can vouch that it works better than my old brand. I will be switching brands. Secret Outlast Completely clear gel is the one for me.
*I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review.
