I don't understand why this has so many negative reviews... Secret has never dissapointed me with their deodorants/antiperspirants. I am from Puerto Rico, a caribbean island that has some really humid, hot weather. On a normal summer day I take up to three showers a day, and cannot live without deodorant! 10 minutes after a shower without it and I'll reek and sweat horribly!!! I have used Secret PH Balanced Invisible Solid since 6 years ago, and it has never let me down! It must be that it works well with my body chemistry. I rub it under my arms in the morning, go to college and at the end of the day I still smell fresh and clean! It also controls under arm wetness effectively! I seriously cannot put into words how much I love Secret deodorants, they're a must have in my drawer!
I have used the smells Shower Fresh, Spring Breeze and this one. My least favorite is Spring Breeze because it smells terribly strong and it makes me dizzy. I have noticed though that the company has reduced their aluminum content in them from 19.5% to 18% in the past year. I don't know why, but they still work the same for me. Their "clinical strength" ones do have almost 20% of aluminum... Talk about risks of breast cancer lol.
Anyway, I once switched to Degree's Body Responsive deodorant because it's a couple of dollars cheaper than Secret's deodorants and after a couple of hours my under arms were wet and stank like a hobo. I'm never ever ever changing Secret deodorants na uh! I feel confident with nice smelling armpits thank you!
Like my other deodorant review, the only real reason why I buy this is because it comes in a bundle of 2 instead of 1 for around $7.
But anyway, this deodorant is a bit strong smelly when you put it on, but I'm fine with that as long as it smells fresh and clean. All of the Invisible Solid PH Balance from Secret's scent smell really fresh and clean, which I adore, so I'm okay with that scent. I usually which around these scents. I'll take that any day over strong flowery smells!
This does what it does, I don't sweat on regular days, but if there is something going one, for example, a presentation, a date, or something that's make me nervous, I'll sweat through it. It'll then leave my underarms slight damp throughout the whole day.
I know I should get a deodorant for stress; however, I can't find myself to fork over my $8-9 for one deodorant. Plus, it still does help me on my regular day activities, so I'll keep buying this.
The Secret Invisible Solid in Powder Fresh is now in my mom's medicine cabinet because I hate- repeat, HATE -the smell of all powder deoderents. My mom got me this when I ran out of truth or pear, which I adore. Now, she loves this, and so do a few of my friends...but I just can't get past the smell. And yes, it stays on all day. Which in this case is a bad thing, considering the horrible steanch of this. In my opinion, I'd rather spritz some body spray under my arms that use this. If you like the smell of powder, this could be for you, but if not...stay away. The smell is SO strong. Not a fan of this at all. This isn't as bad as most powder deoderents, but I just can't stand the smell. If you like powder deoderents, this one is a safe bet, but I would prefer something else.
I actually used secret's shower fresh ph balance and the smell was pretty strong. it didn't have a good coverage because i had sweaty arms when i came home from school. i could even smell the deodorant like perfume when i wore it so its pretty strong!
This deodorant smells so awful and strong!! It's crazy. My friend actually said, " I can smell your deodorant" when she hugged me. My pits still sweat as if I wasn't wearing any deodorant at all ( hey we're all ladies here, right?). It was actually the first "woman's" deo I used. Before, I had used a Degree Girl deodorant. I will be sure to buy Lady Speed Stick next time.
I've been a Dove user for years, but I wanted to try something else for a change. I liked the scent in the package, but oh my goodness, it's aweful on my body. At first I couldn't figure out what I was smelling, but after several teary-eyed days I realized it was this stuff. I don't normally throw out new products, but this went straight into the trash! I don't even remember how well it worked, but it doesn't matter. I then tried Secret's regular deoderant, not the invisible, and while the scent isn't as offensive, it left white marks all over my shirts, so no more Secret for me!
The secret is this sucks. I think I was buying it because Secret is supposed to be good and is marketed well, but it does not deliver. Right now I'm using Lady Speed Stick Stainguard and I LOVE IT. It really is 24 hour because I don't have the slightest scent of BO after wearing this. Even at the end of a hard day or work out and I love it in Daringly Fresh scent.
The good= Lady Speed Stick
The bad= Secret
The ugly= any "natural" deodorant (as much as I wanted to like them)
I have used Dove and Suave Powder Fresh scents with good results. I tried this and I am considering calling P&G and complaining. That's how bad it is! There's something close to a power scent initially but not a true soft, powder scent. More like powder mixed with some strong floral Glade Plug-In smell - truly awful!
I discovered that as the day goes on, the powder note completely goes away and all you're left with is an increasingly strong cheap floral scent. Really not at all something I would expect. I was very disappointed in this product and will not repurchase. continued >>
This deodorant works ok, but it smells so awful! I hate the way Secret deodorant smells and will never buy Secret deodorant again. Dove is much better and smells so good.
I needed something more effective to withstand the summer heat (coming from non-aluminum deodorant) so I purchased the travel size version of this product. It does a decent job of blocking wetness but the fragrance can be nauseating at times. The powder scent starts out powdery/tolerable, but like another reviewer mentioned in the general category of this deodorant, it gets sickeningly sweeter as the day progresses. Due to this issue I will not repuchase.
