I've got a Secret!

That's right...a secret. Sshh!

I have a confession. I am very picky about my deodorant. I don't mean I prefer one deodorant over another, I mean I have used the same deodorant for the past oh let's say 10 years. I don't like to sweat. I don't like to have the sweat marks on any cute little shirt, I don't like to feel that I am going to sweat. I just don't like to sweat. So a friend of mine several years back recommended a deodorant to try. It was a roll on. Which by the way I was NEVER a fan of. You can only get it at a cosmetic studio and it costs about $8-10/a bottle. Now that is expensive stuff to not make a girl sweat. But it would last a long time and it had no scent. Which is a must in the deo department. No scent.

Well a month or so ago, I saw a commercial regarding Secret Clinical Strength anti-perspirant/deodorant. I thought, hmmm I wonder if I should stray from my trusty little roll on and cheat. So when I was at target a few weeks ago, I looked and saw that it only cost $7.95. While it was not a huge savings on what I was spending on my current selection, it was more convenient to buy. So I thought what the heck, why not. It came in a box, so I couldn't wait to get home and try it. I got home and inside was a regular stick of deodorant as well as a pamphlet on how to use it (um, just glide it on the pits?!). But no, it suggests that you put this on every NIGHT before you go to bed. WHAT? I am a shower at night type of girl, so I thought this will be just part of my routine at night (I know you are wondering, she doesn't put on deodorant at night after a shower? To that I say NO. It's not like I am sleeping in the tropics...I sleep in a house where we keep the thermostat on 68 degrees at night). Anyway I digress.

So I started to the new apply deodorant at night. The instruction booklet said that you can put some more on in the morning, but that most people don't need to. I have tried it both ways, and I have noticed that if I am in a pretty active environment, applying the second application in the mornings is beneficial, but the once at night for an average day at work is sufficient.

I hate to admit it, but I actually really like this stuff. I NEVER thought I would say that about another deodorant, but by golly, I think my old stand by has competition. I like the fact that I can buy my secret at a regular store with all my other necessities. I haven't decided if it lasts the same, longer, or shorter as far as replacements.

But I must say, this stuff is GREAT. Try it...you won't be disappointed in my new SECRET.

Ok - this is a bit interesting... First of all - roll ons? Never! Second of all - cosmetic studio deo? Wow - the new things you learn every day!

I'll have to look for the new Secret. I may need to broaden my horizons?!

P.S. I also know a secret!
