This is the best antiperspirant (not deodorant, as it contains aluminium zirconium 20%). I used to use Perspirx antiperspirent that is amazing - once applied, lasts for almost a week.. but as you can tell, it was too strong. I also used Secret deodorant before but it didn't do anything, so I was very excited to try Secret Clinical Strength antiperspirent. And I'm glad I did. It works sooo great! I apply it in the morning and even in hot weather (as in Florida) it does an amazing job all day long.
The only problem, it comes out too much, I usually I have to divide it for both underarms and then wipe off the access cream with a tissue.
I sent one to my mom and she loves it too. About $7 is not bad price, lasts a while.
I got Fresh Water Orchid scent but will try unscented next time.
I sweat under my arms.. a lot. I have never had a problem with actual body odor, just pure sweat, like water under my arms that wets my clothing almost instantly and is embarrassing and feels gross too (it doesn't matter if it's winter or summer - I sweat in that area). After years of using Dove invisible solid deodorant (unscented for sensitive skin), I decided to try Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid in Completely Clean in an attempt to control my underarm wetness. The deodorant smells nice - it has a strong fragrance but I like it so it doesn't bother me. It goes on smooth and to my surprise it actually works! It cut down my underarm sweating by about 80% (granted it's winter so it may not be as effective come summer time).
So... why only a 3 lipstick/star rating? This deodorant may cut down sweating, but it does absolutely nothing for body odor.. if anything, I have found that it amplifies it. As I said before, I have never ever had a problem with B.O. - that was until I started using this deodorant. I put it on at night after a shower and by mid day the next day, my underarms may be mostly dry but my armpits stink like a combo of the deodorant fragrance and B.O. It's awful. I have started spraying perfume around that area to mask it because I really don't want to go back to my Dove yet - because the wet pits will return. Either I naturally have a horrible body odor problem and ALL my deodorants over the years (Dove, Suave, Ban, etc..) have completely masked this, or this Secret Clinical Strength is just does a horrific job of dealing with body odor and in some weird way the fragrance and composition enhances it. I am going to go with the latter.
I will not re purchase. This was my first dabble with clinical strength deodorant. After seeing that there can be results (with the wetness), I plan to try a different brand and perhaps try unscented. Hopefully it will cover underarm wetness AND body odor like a deodorant should and doesn't create horrible body odor instead.
This stuff is uber expensive. It works okay, but I find that I still end up sweating profusely.
You only get about half the product you would get from the regular secret deodorant and secret needs to fix the container so you don't end up with too much coming out.
Overall love this stuff! It comes out like a cream and you simply rub it on. It's very effective and leaves me stank-free. Recommend! xx
This is the only deodorant that I use. I buy the sensitive kind because I have had issues with underarm rashes in the past due to the ingredients in other deodorants. No rash and I never have issues with sweating when I use this Secret Clinical Strength deodorant.
Straight up: in the summer I sweat like a horse. I live in the South and that's just the way I am and I have come to terms with it. I was wary of this product because it has aluminum in it, and I seem to remember something about some vague link between aluminum and Alzheimer's, but if I were really, truly, severely worried about that I'd quit drinking beer, which I have not done and likely will not do. (I digress.) I tried this product out of curiosity - characteristically for me, because it was on sale and I had a coupon. And I love it. I don't put it on at night; I use it in the morning after showering, at which point many people apply deodorant, and it works very, very well for me.
I started off with the sport version, which is fine, and the stress release version, which is fine too, but I don't care to go to the trouble of matching the fragrance family of my deodorant to that of whatever fragrance whim I have for a specific day because I'm just not that coordinated in the morning, so I've begun to use the unscented. All are excellent. I'm even using it in the winter now because it works, works, works. I remain slightly concerned about aluminum but on the other hand I'd just as soon not stink, and the natural, aluminum-free deodorants I've used just don't cut it one bit.
Check out drugstore versions of this too. They work just as well. Enjoy!
Terrible I wouldnt recommend ! The price is high and it doesnt work.If you have B.O and not sweat problems I 100% recommend . But then again me and my next door neighbor tried this out and it didnt work on me but it worked on her. Everybodys body is different for me it didnt work .
This is great! But you have to use it the right way!!! The directions say to apply at night which works best if you shower at night. I've found that if I have to shower in the morning and then put it on it does not absorb into my skin all the way and is not as effective. However, sometimes I do not shower every day and I do not need to apply more. This stuff works for 48 hrs! I have the oh la la lavender scent which smells really good. Strong at first but it fades overnight. Oh I should also mention that this is not exactly a solid stick of deodorant. It's kind of like a thick lotion that you rub on. Sometimes it is hard to get the right amount out using the applicator. Overall, I like it and it is the only deodorant I will be using for a while.
Terrible!!!! Just dried out my underarms and I never even saw the results. Much easier just to use the drysol pads from my dermatologist. This is a waste of money.
I have always been a dove deodorant fan but the summery days became hotter and well I became more sweaty than usual and the dove deodorants just were not doing it anymore so I switched to the secret clinical strength ! Best thing I ever did ! I love this stuff really does controll my under arm sweat smells clean and fresh and keeps me fresh I don't have to worry about sweating like a pig anymore only this is jus wish it didint get on black clothing other than that I love it !!! Very gentle for those with sensitive skin as well:)
