Product Review: Secret Outlast

It’s something that doesn’t come up in conversation very often, but it can make or break your whole day. For years I have had issues with deodorant. It works for a week, then it stops working, or it doesn’t last through lunch.  I buy the strongest one I can find without a prescription, and cross my fingers that it will get me through the whole day.

No one else seems to have this problem – anytime the topic comes up, it’s skimmed over quickly and the topic is changed. Surely someone else must have the same issue, with a box of a dozen different deordorants in their closet that have only been used once or twice.

Secret has been crossed off my list for a number of years, and when they came out with Outlast, I didnt give them a second thought. No way could that one work. I’ll stick with my Dove Clinical Protection. I’m not crazy about the smell, but it works.

BzzAgent sent me a free sample of Secret to try, and I made a mental note to try it on the weekend, so that I wouldnt be at the office without a working deordorant.  It smelled pretty good – very fresh – I put it on and forgot about it.

Around dinnertime, I remembered that I had it on. And guess what – it was working! After a day of heavy errands, it was working better than the Dove.  But this is Secret, I thought – and Secret doesnt work for me. So I tested it again the next day, and it worked again.

It has been about a month now, and so far so good. I love that it smells good and is cheap (no more $9.99 plus tax sticks of deordorant).  Now next time someone asks me about my deordorant, I can just say “I use Secret -it’s great”, and change the subject.
