Secret Clinical Strength is designed to provide prescription strength, extra-effective, wetness protection for women even with the most demanding body chemistries.
As I said in my initial impression, I have never used a deodorant quite like this one! One thing I did not realize about this product is they recommend using it before bedtime, but you can use it in the mornings, too. The directions encourage you to use 2 “clicks” per underarm, but I find that one is usually enough.
I’m not a very heavy sweater, so I am not sure this product is specifically designed for me. But I can definitely see the benefits for using it when you know you will be doing something more active or stressful. I really like the fact that this product has a moisturizing effect. It really is like armpit lotion!
Not to mention how awesome the Serene Citrus scent is! I am very picky when it comes to fragranced products, but this one is wonderful!
Secret’s campaign for their new deodorant mainly focuses on the fact that it combats stress sweat, so for one of the challenges they asked us to tweet how it helped us! Here’s my tweet:

Here’s a little interesting information for you about sweat and stress:
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 offers a lot of protection from nasty armpit sweat, and keeps you smelling fresh all day (and sometimes even longer!). Overall, I was very impressed with the quality of this product. I had never used this kind of deodorant before, and was hesitant at first, but I am quickly becoming a fan!
You can find Secret products at most major retailers. Suggested retail price: $7.99-$9.99 for a 1.6oz.
