#5 in Deodorant & Antiperspirant
Did you know there are actually three main causes of sweat? Sweat is induced by physical activity/exercise, environmental/heat and stress. Stress sweat is different – it can happen instantaneously and smells the worst, because it comes from two different glands. Sweat from physical activity and heat comes from the Eccrine sweat glands – made up mostly of water. Stress sweat however also comes from a different gland, the Apocrine. The Aprocrine gland has more nutrients, which means more bacteria, which can cause more odor. Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response is uniquely formulated to fight the worst-smelling odor that’s caused by stress sweat. Secret’s the only APDO with proprietary BCD technology which actually traps and locks away odor. It then replaces the odor with a fresh scent instead of merely covering it up, which can even make stress sweat odor worse. Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response has proven 4X* stress sweat protection to fight all three sources of sweat: exercise, heat and the worst smelling cause of sweat – stress. Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response also: • Utilizes triple-action technology, providing three layers of protection: prescription-strength wetness protection, odor-fighting BCD microcapsules and skin soothing conditioners. • Is doctor endorsed and clinically proven to provide prescription strength wetness protection. Contains the maximum level of this antiperspirant active without a prescription. • Contains skin soothing conditioners *vs. the wetness protection required of an ordinary antiperspirant.

I had the opportunity to give Secret's Clinical Strength a try. Now, I have never thought to try them, before, because - hey - I didn't think I had a "clinical" problem with sweat.
I'm a rather normal gal and so I always pictured "clinical" needs as being something - well - medical. You know? Like... someone who you picture as having a legitimate issue with sweating.
But - hey - I'm a team player. I'm always willing to give things a try... especially something that is in the land of health and beauty.

I not only tried it but I keep on using it! What?
Here's the deal. I am a woman who is enjoying the magic of hormone-free menopause and, when I say "magic", I really mean "hell".

On top of that "magic", I also live in Texas. We're currently in the autumnal season which means we dance between temperatures in the 50's and the 90's... in the same day. I've got the outside temperature influence fighting with the interior influence of hot flashes and cold sweats all wrapped in my insane life schedule. While I don't have a medical problem with sweat, I have a life problem called - well - life.

This stuff really keeps up! I don't feel gross when I apply it because it's smooth and dry. I don't feel gross by the end of the day because it stays where it was applied. The scent is very nice, too. I'm a big fan of low or fresh fragrances. I do detest something overly-powerful in that area so it was nice to not open the box and be overpowered by baby powder. The scent I've got is called "completely clean" and it's like a very light hint of fresh laundry.

Give it a try, yourself. I think you'll be just as pleasantly surprised as I am.

I would be so lost if this product were ever discontinued!

As someone who sweats more than most, I've struggled with the embarrassment of excessive perspiration. For years I dealt with it by wearing layers and lots of black. It can be the dead of winter and I still have issues if I'm not wearing the right deodorant, since it's mostly stress-related. When the clinical deodorants hit the market, I was skeptically optimistic.

I first tried Secret Clinical Strength in light and fresh and I've been hooked ever since! It is more expensive than traditional antiperspirants, so I was hoping it was worth the extra cost. And boy is it ever!! The application is different than I'm used to. It is not a stick, but a "smooth solid." So basically, it's like a thick lotion consistency. I used this for a few months with great success before I read the packaging and saw you are supposed to apply this at night! I then switched up when I apply and find it works just as well. I apply 1 click at night before bed and another in the morning after showering.

The first thing I noticed when I opened the top was the smell! Clean and fresh is the best way to describe it. I applied the deodorant the night before just as the packaging said, which was a little strange since I am so use to doing that in the morning! The stress sweat protection lasted throughout the entire next day. Between all of the meetings, volleyball practice, and dinner with the in-laws I was underarm sweat free! The only criticism I have is that it didn't last 48 hours as advertised. Reapplication was necessary the following day to avoid any body odor. However, that wasn't big deal since I am used to applying deodorant everyday anyway. Overall impression...great smell and great stress sweat protection for 24 hours.

I started using this when I was in middle school because I tended to sweat a lot and no matter what deodorant I used I would end up with super embarrassing sweat stains. I started looking into the "clinical strength" deodorant and this honestly works so amazing. The only downside to is it that it is white so you have to be careful not to get it on your clothes but I think they make a clear formula now too (I'm not sure if it works as well as the white one though) I'm still using this 10 years later and I love this product. They have so many nice scents too so you can change it up each time you need a refill!

I seriously could not live without this deodorant!!!! I don't even know how I lived before this existed....wait yes I do the memories I've tried to block are coming back....pit stains every single day 😳 it was humiliating. Before I found this I was getting by with certain dri which helped with the stains but not always and stung so bad!!! This secret clinical deodorant came along and I have never looked back. I especially love the clean/fresh scent....this will last you a good 36 hrs dry and smelling fab as long as you dont workout or anything super strenuous. MIRACLE PRODUCT!!!

No funky Biz!
I had tried so many from other brands and secret itself but this one has become my favorite because it delivers the protection it advertises and also stays clean on the garment I wear, be it black or some other color! There are hormonal changes which lead to underarm stinks in ladies after 20-25 of age. But this product changes the game entirely for me and I don't have to worry after even a lot of physical activity for 12 hours! It is not waxy and so unlike other gel products in the market and washes off easily in shower.

I have been using this product for years now. Every time I have to buy a new one a little part of my wallet cries because it is on the pricier side but it lasts me for forever and works the best for me with my active lifestyle. I work in food service and at a gym- both are environments where I am active and interacting with customers. This deodorant keeps me fresh all day long and I never have to worry about off-putting odors or sweat stains. Love it, can't recommend it enough. I'm never buying anything else.

I personally love love love this product! I know what your thinking... It's just deoterant! But this deoterant is awesome! it goes on clear which is so nice because you won't have to deal with deoterant stains on your shirt! If your anything like me and you can smell your sweat through other deoterants this one is for you. I wear it all day and never even get a whiff of sweat stank! the container for this product is small which seems pretty negative but this product will last you months I swear!

Being an athlete in high school, I sweated A LOT. No deodorants ever seemed to fully take the stink away or help with the sweat during and after practice or game day. After trying this my life was changed. Seriously! Obviously after playing soccer you are going to sweat but this helped bring it down and I didn't smell bad really. When using it just for a regular day it hands down had me covered all day. Nothing to worry about. Didn't have to worry if you start smelling a little bit sweaty.

This deodorant has definitely been a lifesaver for me and is definitely for the higher price, you get what you pay for. So when I sweat like a man, and I've always been very self conscious about it. I even considered getting injections to close out some of my sweat glands, yeah it was that bad. Than I discover the good ol clinical strength deodorant, it works, really well! I've been using it for years now and will continue paying the extra cost to retain some of my pride when working out!
