      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      This past Saturday I was a Bridesmaid in a very good friends wedding. The dresses she picked were lovely, but the light blue color was sure to show any perspiration at all. Plus I knew I would be active dancing and a little nervous to do my role in the wedding correctly. That all adds up to a day when you need a great deodorant/antiperspirant. A couple weeks ago I picked up 3 different deodorants and decided to test them out. The three were Dove Invisible, Arrid Clear and the Secret Satin. I really didn't like the Arrid at all, didn't keep me dry, and was not totally clear, I would probably give it 1 or 1 1/2 stars at best. The Dove was a little better, but I still doubted the protection against sweat under pressure, maybe a 3 star product. Secret passed all my trials and I decided that was the one I was going to use, but how did it perform? After 6 hours in a light blue dress, dancing and socializing I was totally dry and still smelling very fresh and clean. The Secret Satin worked 100% and I am very impressed. If a deodorant can do it's job under these conditions I am very confident it will keep me looking and smelling good for everyday use as well.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I must have tried every anti-perspirant deodorant going, and this one is far and away the best for me. I'm not particularly sweaty, you understand, just rather particular about what I want to daub under my arms every morning and how it should perform throughout the day. Having sensitive skin, I need a deodorant that doesn't sting. Secret has never caused me the slightest bit of irritation or soreness. Liking to look my best, I do not want a deodorant that leaves great big white powdery patches under my arms and on my clothes. Secret cream does neither. Rub it in well and it dries in seconds and leaves no tell-tale residue behind. As I'm very fond of my (expensive, hard-earned and saved up for) perfume, I do not want a deodorant which has an overpowering smell. Secret cream comes in 3 scents and now a new 'no scent' version (though I've only managed to get this one from Tesco so far). The scented ones are subtle and talcy, not at all offensive, and the smell soon settles and is barely noticeable. The no-scent one is even better, as your armpits smell of...absolutely nothing! Finally, I want a deodorant that does its job and will keep on doing so through a hard day at work and straight out in the evening. I don't want to have to carry deodorant around in my handbag. Last Friday I put on my Secret cream after my morning shower, spent 8 hours at work, drove straight up the motorway for a clubbing night out, drove back, got in at 4 am, slept on a mate's couch until 11 the next day and then drove home. Result: dry as a bone and fresh as a daisy after this very gruelling test. What more could I ask? To use: Turn the knob at the bottom of the tube twice to allow the right amount of deodorant to come through. Apply Secret cream with 2 or 3 strokes under each armpit and leave to dry for a few seconds before putting on clothes. Secret cream is available from most su
        permarkets and chemists at around £2.99, so it's more expensive than some, but for me it is well worth the money. And it does last a couple of months with 1 or 2 applications per day. Oh, and the no-scent version would be ideal for guys, too.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I have suffered from problem sweating for a long time. I have tried many deoderants that don't work, leave nasty white marks on your clothes, irritates your skin, can't use after shaving etc etc etc. You all know the score. When I saw secret advertised on the telly as a deoderant designed especially for women I had my doubts but decided to give it a try. I was surprised. Although the packaging recommends 'two clicks' I found one click was enough. Two clicks worth of cream was too much and didnt sink in so therefore there was excess which rubbed off onto clothes. After my first day of using it I noticed a dramatic difference. this cream actually worked. It even lasted all day without me having to re-apply. I could even use this cream straight after shaving underneath my arms without it stinging. I have compared this deoderant to others in terms of cost. It is approximately the same but have found it lasts much longer especially compared to sprays and aerosols. I would like to see a few more fragrances in the range as I am not too keen on the ones that are out now, even the supposebly fragrance free one smells a bit funny to me.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I have been using the Exotic Fresh Secret Satin Dry Cream for a while now, I bought them whilst they were on a buy one, get one free offer at my local Somerfield store, it cost £2.29. It is a pleasant smelling, long-lasting anti-perspirant deoderant suitable for daily use. You simply turn the dial at the bottom of the container until you have heard two clicks, you then apply it underarm and make sure it is rubbed in. The cream provides ultra protection, is not sticky when you apply it and is one of the best deoderants around for keeping you dry all day. It also leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. There is a 50ml of the stuff in a blue coloured container which is niether bulky or heavy. It says you shouldn't apply it to irrited or damage skin and you should discontinue use if a rash develops, although it doesn't say it is mainly suitable for a particular skin type. Overall I feel this is a brilliant product and I would recommend it everytime.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              I get very tired or buying deoderants that leave white poder marks on your clothes, cause itchy skin and give off a worse smell than you'd ever have if you hadn't bother using one in the first place. I've nver been a fan of anything you roll on, I always thought of the 'YUCK' factor of leaving sweat on it just to re-apply it to yourself. A friend of mine told me to try out 'Secret'. She assured me that it had a lovely gentle smell, no white residue and because it was a cream that you clicked up to use, nothing would be left on the applicator. I bought a peach one to try out, and was amazed. It went on and dries almost right away, and there really was no residue on the skin or horrible smell. It had a really gentle fragrance that you'd never know was there. I was at the gym, flogging my guts out on a variety of instruments of torture, and was delighted to find, that the dreaded arm-pits were still fresh and dry after 90 minutes of non stop exercise. That alone seemed like a miracle to me! Secret is widely available in most chemists and supermarkets. It comes in several scents which include peach, summer meadow, lavender and even scent free. It can be relied on to work for hours on end, even on the sweatiest of subjects. It is lovely to use. As it's a cream, you apply it by clicking up a little dial at the side, which send up a small amound to be applied. As no roller ball is used, once you've used it, you can give it a quick wipe with a wet-one or similar, thus totally illiminating the 'YUCK' factor I metioned earlier. It is very reasonably priced and offers great value for money. Having used Secret, I'd never go back to using a spray on again.

                Disadvantages

                I have tried many different brands of anti-perspirant in the past. I find that the sprays tend to leave bits on your clothes, and are not very economical. Dove is good, so is the Sure Cream stick I have also tried Mum. But the most effective for me is Secret, either the cream or the stick version. I find it dries immediately, works effectively and smells nice. It seems to prevent me perspiring for most of the day and it last ages. BUT, it leaves a trail of white marks on your garments. I cannot use Secret when I am wearing anything sleeveless, as it comes of on anything it touches. This looks terrible if your wearing anything black. Any tops have to be put on very carefully so they don’t accidentally brush against your armpits! The white marks do wash off easily without permanent staining, but it is embarrassing when I am wearing a vest top to find all these white marks around the armholes. I would recommend Secret, as long as you keep to pastel or white.

                Disadvantages

                I've tried to use this product, because apparently deoderants are better for you. However, I have had problems with using this particular brand. I did what I normally do with roll on/stick deoderants and then got dressed. The fragrance was fresh and lasted for quite a while, I felt comfortable, cool and confident. It was only when taking off my chic little cardigan that I noticed all this white stuff smeared around the armpit area. Now, that kind of knocked my confidence in what my actual armpits must have looked like at that particular moment, and being in a public place I didn't have the nerve to take a quick peek. I mean, I wasn't sure how to raise my arm, swivel my head in the general direction of said armpit and check without drawing attention to myself in an embarrassing social faux pas type way. I didn't bother. I put the cardi (it really was a sexy little thing and they should find a better name for it than that) back on and sweltered my way through the rest of the evening. Admittedly the residue washed out the following day after a spin in the machine, but that wasn't the point. Having spoken with a few friends, you apparently had to let the stuff DRY after it'd been put on. Seeing as how I thought the cream had vanished into the skin I didn't realise that I then had to walk around like doing the funky chicken without the funky bit, until I thought it had dried enough. The problem it appears had been noticed by a number of consumers because they've changed the formula somewhat although it's still advisable to glide your way round the room, arms stretched, whilst letting the air do it's job. I'm a bit 50-50 about whether I would use it again, but seeing as I got a small stick free with a different product then maybe I'll give it a go. So if you see a woman checking her armpits at a social gathering and it's NOT Julia Roberts, it
                's me. Come and say hello. I might have smeary armpits, but I know I'll still smell nice....

                Disadvantages

                I had totally given up on the search for a dry anti-perspriant deodorant. Loads of brands claim to be dry and claim you won't have to wait around for hours waiting for your under-arm to dehydrate, but all of this seemed to be lies. Having given up on this I just decided to buy the first one I could see. I didn't care, I closed my eyes and picked one up. What I happened to get was Dry Advance Secret Satin Dry. Having dry twice in its name I thought to be a bad sign, but I was very surprised. It is actually fairly dry. Now I emphasise the fairly. I don't think you'll ever find a totally dry anti-perspirant, but this is close enough. It's a cream and it comes in one of those little machines that you twist the bottom of and the cream comes up through little holes in the top. With their DuoClick system you click it twice and the right amount comes out. Fantastic! It's called exotic fresh and smells quite nice. And at the end of the day I'm still fresh, which is the most important thing.

                Disadvantages

                I was happily using Secret until my friend Anna kindly told me that the ingredient in deodorant 'zinc something?' could give you cancer. This started my quest for the zincless deodorant that didn't make me stink. First I tried 'pit roc' (nice name) from my local health shop. I smelled. The 'pit roc' was basically a big lump of sea salt stuff which you wet and rub under your arms, and which consequently runs down to your waist. Next, Neals Yard coriander and lemon oil deodorising spray, totally ineffective, I had the biggest sweat marks known to man and I spent the whole day trying to dry them under the handdryer in the toilets at work. Then I tried none at all. I really don't have to say anything about that day. After 2 weeks of feeling paraniod and smelly I went back to using Secret. I like having dry armpits without the fear of stinking and so far my health doesn't seem to have deteriorated, so I'll carry on. I decided to stop believing all these health scares. I did, however freak out in the summer when I heard that using hair dyes with all the wierd chemicals can give you cancer. A month of using clumpy green henna strapped onto my head with clingfilm (leaving me with black streaks on my cheeks) ensued and I decided that I should stop being so vain and wierd. Chicks are a truly strange lot. You will be glad to know that i have now given into vanity and dyed my hair again, and it feels great being a risk-taker!

                  I first heard about this product when an advertisement came through my door with a money off voucher. I decided to try it as it sounded good. Great new smell with no powdery substance to be seen. I thought it was quite expensive at the time although as I only bought it the once I cannot remember the exact price. Only that it was more than my usual deodorant Sure. I liked the smell of it and thought to myself ok it is dearer but then we can all have our little luxuries. I then found I was very disappointed. When I looked I had a white powdery mark where I had used the deodorant which then rubbed onto my clothes and was sometimes obvious to others. I then decided to stop using the product and threw away a half used deodorant. What a waste. I will not be buying this product again.

                    I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find a deodorant that was always 100% effective. I had tried most of the 'powerful' deodorants - you know the kind that promise sweat-free armipits even if you are a rock-climbing lycra-suit wearing high flying executive.... ... then as a last ditched attempt in the battle against summer time odour I tried Secrets stick. Yippe! It works - 'nuff said. The only disadvantage is that it does leave quite a bit of residue on your clothes - but maybe that's just cos I pile it on. Try it!

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    I always hated roll-ons because they were so sticky - I'd have to wander round my room with my arms in the air waiting for my armpits to dry. But on the other hand, I hated sprays because they got everywhere, were poisonous to my goldfish :( and left powdery marks on my clothes. When Boots had a promotion on Secret Satin Dry Cream I thought I would give it a try and I was so impressed! It keeps me acceptably dry (lets face it no antiperspirant keeps your pits bone-dry) and more importantly smell free for the whole day. It goes on dry and rubs in well - better than it's main competitor Sure's dry cream. It doesn't totally eliminate white marks on clothes, but they aren't nearly as bad as sprays and the longer you leave it before putting a top on, the less marks are left. And if you're careful putting clothes on, no marks at all! The range of scents is good, but I personally prefer the new fragrance free cream, there really is no fragrance and it works just as well as the scented ones - still no pong! It is slightly pricy at £2.99, but its a great price for a brilliant product, and it does last for ages. 10 out of 10!

                    I tried this when it first got sent to me as a tester pot and loved it! I am a very "perspirey" type of person and have always had trouble finding an antiperspirant that works. this is excellent. It is available in a stick too, which tends to last a little longer and is cheaper and just as effective. Shop around for prices too as they can vary enormously from £1.88 for 2 in Tradex to over £2.50 each in Boots. Look out for offers, Wilkos is consistantly good value. Buy it and try it, It really works

                    Disadvantages

                    I tried Secret deodorant when I first saw the TV advert for it. I was sceptical at first - I've always used a spray deodorant, as roll-ons take so long to dry and tend to leave marks on clothes. Secret was easy to use - you turn the dial by 2 clicks, and a measured amount of cream comes out, so you always use the right amount. I've found that using one click is also quite useful if you want to "top-up" the deodorant before you go out at night or whatever. The cream dries quickly, and does not mark clothes at all, provided you make sure you rub it in *completely* before you put your clothes on. I found it very easy and convenient to use. Most importantly, this is the most effective deodorant I have ever used! It keeps me dry and sweet-smelling all day, even when it's really hot. I cannot recommend this too highly - I have found this deodorant to be amazingly effective.
