The “year’s supply” of Secret Clinical Protection came with this cute little disclaimer from Klout Perks, “The Influencer Code of Ethics”. They’re encouraging full disclosure, score one for Klout Perks! I decided to give myself a week before I wrote about my internet be-got goodies so that I could 1) Actively assess the efficacy of my current deodorant and 2) Test out the new one in a few different circumstances.
I had been using Mitchum Power Gel for Women , and had overall been happy with it. The scent is light, almost non-existent, and the gel consistency doesn’t leave white marks on your clothes. The only problem with it would feel sticky at the beginning of a workout, and quite frankly it was irritating.
Secret Clinical Protection is a white solid (it seems to have a sort of whipped solid consistency), so I was little worried it would get on my clothes. So far, it hasn’t been an issue, I’ll keep you posted! It smells AMAZING. The second I put it on I was in love with the smell. It’s fresh and clean, but not too strong. The downside of this is that I spent all morning trying to get a whiff of my armpits…oops?
In terms of protection, it kept me dry and non smelly sweating during the day, and was comfortable through my workouts. When I ran a 3 miler, I still smelled good afterwards…weird. However, in true I am a sweaty athlete form, if I went on a hard run, a long run, or did speedwork I was a smelly beast from head to toe (but I really don’t expect a deodorant to make me smell like a rose 2 hours and 12 miles later).
All in all, I’d give it an A+. When I run out of the free stuff, I will probably buy more.
Do you have any favorite products that you would never trade for another brand?
