Did you know heat, activity, and stress can all cause you to sweat, and that stress sweat smells WORSE than other kinds of sweat? Stress sweat comes from a different gland—causing more bacteria and more odor. That's why Secret Clinical Strength is clinically stress-tested and formulated with 4X the stress-sweat protection* to help stop sweat and odor before they start. It absorbs odor while releasing scent, to keep you smelling clean and feeling dry. Enjoy all-day coverage with Secret Clinical Strength antiperspirant/deodorant – incredible protection, no matter what the day may bring. *Vs. the protection required of an ordinary antiperspirant.

  • Sweat and odor are no match for Clinical Strength 48 hours of prescription-strength odor control and wetness protection
  • Soothe and protect your underarms with Secret Clinical Strength Soft Solid, formulated with skin-soothing conditioners to minimize irritation and soothe dry, tender underarm skin

The best deodorant out there. Really makes a difference with stopping sweat and masking odor. This is my favorite scent by far. I made the mistake of buying Dove clinical once, the smell was so sickly sweet and in your face. Never making that mistake again!

This is the deodorant you wear when you’re going for a job interview, going to CrossFit, or going to break up with your cheating boyfriend. This stuff is powerful!! I apply it after I shower, and I swear it can last me for days! My armpits feel dry and stay stink-free. No other deodorant I’ve found can touch this one!

I didn't like the way it made my underarms smell and yes I'm a sweat heavy I notice soon as I sweat my underarms smell sour and I never used a antiperspirant that made me smell and it say clinical strength light and fresh so I thought it would help me smell better but I don't like it .

Review for: Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant and Deodorant Soft Solid, Light & Fresh, 2.6 Oz. (Pack of 10) more...
I don’t often use secret but when I do it must be clinical strength. For years I would sweat without anything able to work to stop it but this deodorant was like sent from heaven. It helped reduce the amount of sweat and also smells good. It’s not a heavy scent just enough goodness to not smell musty if you do break a sweat.

This has been my deodorant for over 5 years now. Since elementary school I had problems with extreme sweating. After trying multiple "clinical strength brands, Secret Clinical soft solid truly solved my sweaty struggles. On top of that the oo la la lavender and light and fresh scents smell amazing!

This is the best deodorant!!! I always use secret, but just recently got a sample of their new clinical strength. This is the strongest deodorant that you can get without a prescription. This works great & smells great too. I will be purchasing the normal size bottle next time I get this. Highly recommend!

This is a great deodorant if you have sensitive underarms but also have problems with a lot of sweat. I can get very sweaty, but with this deodorant/antiperspirant I was completely dry and scent free. I have also never had a reaction to this deodorant, where others have.

I cannot stand this deodorant. This is the first clinical strength deodorant I've ever purchased, I don't necessarily need it because I don't sweat badly I just thought I'd give it a try since it's summertime. First, I hate solid deodorant. I'm a gel fan. But they didn't offer this in the gel form so that was strike one. Second, the smell is overwhelming and it has that "deodorant smell", like that powdery smell where you can tell someone is wearing deodorant from 10 feet away. And lastly, it's not effective. I get more sweat protection from my regular Secret gel deodorant.

Works well enough considering I am a heavy perspirer. I like using soft solids and this one dispenses just the right amount. The smell isn’t overwhelming either.

I love the soft solid formula. It blends without getting sticky or leaving a white residue. It is also on sale at least once a month at most retailers so you can usually get it at a discount. The scent is mild and not distracting at all. Would definitely recommend!

What is your favorite scent that this comes in and where do you purchase?! My favorite scents are the Oprah, Aloe, and Lavender and I tend to stock up at CVS or Target!

I have been trying many different deodorants in the past few months and can not find one that doesn't have issues. They either end up smelling to strong or not strong enough. Either way it ends up unpleasant. Anyone have any suggestions for me?
