Secret Outlast Clear Gel - [Review]


I usually wouldn't make a blog post about something like deodorant, but I needed to do a blog post to send over to BzzAgent as one of my activities.

If you haven't heard of BzzAgent, it's sort of like a website like Influenster (but a lot less work!)  they send you mostly full size products (FOR FREE!) to sample, and you provide your review to them. You also share your thoughts with friends and family to pass information along about these products you have been sent. In the past I have received Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner, Pantene Pro V shampoo and conditioner and BB hair cream. I've also received Nice n Easy hair dye, and now Secret Outlast Clear Gel deodorant.

When it's time to purchase deodorant, I usually pick up Lady Speed Stick, because I love the multiple scents it comes in. When it's on sale, I stock up, so I usually don't have to think hard about what I will buy when it comes time to needing some. Also, I've tried gel deodorants in the past, and I absolutely hated them. I was unsure what to think when I got this in the mail.

As soon as I got it, I tried it out. It takes quite a few turns to get the product to come out. It says to wind it only once or twice when you do apply it, and that really is enough.

The gel does feel a little cold and wet, but it dries pretty fast. I was surprised because I remember having to wait forever for it to dry in the past. I wasn't a huge fan of the lavender scent that I received, but it isn't too bad. 

I noticed while Christmas shopping (you know, when you're stuck running around the mall, with that heavy winter jacket) that I wasn't sweating (ew) as much under my pits. I don't usually get stinky, but I knew this deodorant was working, just like it should. The protection in this deodorant is great - and that was a huge surprise for me, because I have been avoiding gel like the plague.

If you are someone who do manages to perspire, this would be a great deodorant for you. I may just reconsider my usual choice when I do eventually run out of my regular deodorant.
