Here's a new love of mine: Secret Clinical Strength Stress Sweat. No joke either. It's been one of my new loves this month. I've always been very picky about my deodorant. I've used Secret Invisible Solid, Dove, and some random brand. I used Secret for a long time since that's what everyone uses and it works. I used Dove because the cucumber scent seemed 'cool' and the packaging was pretty. I actually brought a pack of four from Costco and I never used the rest after I used that first one. I used that random brand because I was in middle school and I didn't want to stink during physical education class. Through these years I've come up with a few criteria that I have to have for my deodorant: A) It has to smell good. This smell is going to be lingering around you all day. You're going to be smelling it if you do any sort of exercise where you have to raise your arms. You're going to smell it on the armpits of your shirts. Your significant other is going to smell it if they put their head on your shoulder. It also needs to be good enough that you don't get sick of it. A stick of deodorant lasts a long time. If you get sick of it within a week you're just going to waste your money. The smell should not be overpowering either. Clean scents are the best. B) It has to leave the least amount of residue behind as possible. You know how at the end of the day your deodorant leaves a sticky/waxy residue behind under your arms? It's such a pain to scrub off in the shower. Why can't deodorant just dissolve with soap? Apparently not. It doesn't work that way. C) This is a given, but it needs to actually work. Sometimes I run from class, to work, straight to dance practice. I can't have my deodorant wearing off halfway through work. Even worse, during dance practice. The thing has to have lasting power. It also has to work during the summer months when it's humid as hell and you're sweating like crazy. Of the three brands I've used Secret is my favorite. I've been using the Secret Invisible Solid for a few years now, but I absolutely hate the scent. I'm not sure which one I have, but it's too sweet and after awhile it just smells like cough medicine. It leaves a white residue behind on the underarms of my shirts (which is so annoying). It also leaves a sticky/waxy residue that is impossible to get off in the shower without some vigorous scrubbing. I feel like I'm super exfoliating daily, but it blocks sweat like no other. It works well and that's why I've kept using it for so long. However, Influenster sent me Secret's new Clinical Strength Stress Response in Citrus with my Sweetheart Voxbox. I don't think I necessarily needed clinical strength deodorant. I also didn't think that I would like the citrus scent under my arms. It's quite strong if you sniff it in the container. This worst thing ever is to have a citrus scent bursting from under my armpits, but I went ahead and tried it. I actually love it. It's not because I got it for free, but I'm seriously loving it (as in I'm going to switch to this line for the rest of my life until something better comes along). I've grown to love the citrus scent. It's more refreshing and now as sweet once you have it on. It's not invasive, it doesn't leave crappy residue on my clothing. I don't have as much of a residue film under my arms when I shower. Best of all it works. It really works. I might not need the extra clinical strength, but it's reassuring to have it just in case I run into a problem where I'm really stinking it up! According to Secret, stress sweat can smell worse than regular body oder. Thus, this formula has special stuff to combat stress sweat to keep you smelling great even in stressful situations. So, why not? Have that extra level of protection for those nerve wracking situations like... a first date.

Over the past year I have been getting these crazy hot flashes, face sweats and sweating way more than ever - I never really used to sweat much (Not sure if it's from a new medication I've been put on or WHAT) and they have been driving me crazy! Especially when I'm outside laying out tanning... I would start to smell funny after a while. I've gone through a few different brands and products over the last while and I purchased this kind about a month or so ago now and have finally found my saving grace! It works awesome, the scent lasts throughout the day and I sweat less under my armpits! I definitely recommend this product, it's a 10/10 for sure in my books! Plus, it's cheap - What's not to love about that??

I admit to needing to use clinical strength deodorant/antiperspirant and have done the tried, failed, tried, failed routines through the slew of deodorants out there to include sprays, gels, sticks and powders. An expensive issue I must say which is one of the many positives that puts this antiperspirant by Dove above the others I have tried. The first time I used this was directly after shaving my armpits during a hot shower; I sprayed it on then remembered so, I stood there with my arms up and a cringe on my face waiting for the sting. Guess what? No stinging, no issues what so ever! I was so excited I decided to do the "clear finish" test and sprayed it directly on the back of a pair of black yoga capris. I let it set for several hours on my bed and guess what? Yep, NO white at all! Last test? The 48 hour claim to fame! Remember that I need to wear clinical strength. Conclusion: Zero sweats, zero smells, zero stains, zero wetness. Left me clean, dry and smelling fresh all through my work day, my kids' homework after work and exercises in the evening when my kids have sports practice (our local YMCA). I gave all my other deodorants and antiperspirants to my daughter because, I have found my #1 finally after decades of trying and failing through the rest! Loved this #VoxBox ~ huge thank you to Influenster!

I work in a restaurant... for those of you that know, the sweat from running around for 8 hours, to the smell on your clothes after you close down for the night, can be horrible. At least my pits don't smell!!!! During the summer months I also put a little under my ta-tas, can't be having that boobie sweat either! I love this product and have been using it for years. I've tried every sent they offer but this one is my favorite, its light and smells refreshing!

I have recommended this to my co-workers because it lasts all day and night! The plus for this company is that they even make one for light and dark clothing! I have also tried those but i keep coming back for the sent of this one.
