I smell, but we all knew that. What with all the gas and potty stops along my runs, sometimes I’m not so fresh. But,what you might not know, is that I have an underarm issue as well. I don’t sweat much, but somehow my B.O. is horrendous. You would think I was an overweight hairy man mowing the lawn in 100 degree heat (okay that might be a bit of an exaggeration). I have never had much luck controlling the stench. Sometimes I use my 12 year old’s Axe, but then I end up smelling like my son or some cheesy guy in a bar trying to make moves on college girls.
The trick? Secret Clinical Sport. This stuff is the cat’s meow (did you know the expression “cat’s meow” also means, “A heterosexual woman who is very popular amongst or attractive to lesbians?). Maybe wearing Secret Clinical Sport will make me attractive to lesbians. I don’t know. Time will tell. This would certainly be a bonus and one secret should put on their label.
So…the deal with this deodorant that makes it different, (aside from the active ingredient Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex in the highest level in any OTC deodorant), is you are supposed to put it on at night before bed. it works its magic all night long and seeps into your pores. You do not apply the next day even if you shower.
I know. Weird. I’m just telling you what it says to do.
It also advises to “apply to underarms only,” which is too bad because I had some other places I wanted to put it. Oh, get your mind out of the gutter.
I put this secret to the test today when I went out for a hot 16 mile run. You know how when you run you get whiffs of yourself every now and then? The air moves just right through your clothing or under your arm or up from your lady/man area and you take in a smell of yourself. Sometimes it’s enough to stop you in your tracks. I am thrilled to report that each whiff I got (and there were many of them on the long and windy run) were pleasant!! At least those whiffs coming from the underarms. Maybe someday they’ll come up with a Secret Clinical Strength for your shorts.
Secret did not send me this stuff to review. I just love it and it has improved my life. I wanted to share. I know it came out a couple of years ago and I’m late to the party, but better late than never. I probably never tried it because it’s about double the price of regular deodorant/antiperspirants. I paid $5.99 for it on sale at Target. I think it’s usually about $7.50. Also, for some reason it sits on the highest shelf in the store. I tend to look eye level or lower. I need to break out of that habit.
