For this blog post, I received a sample size Secret Fresh Collection Deodorant in Cool Waterlily from Crowdtap in exchange for my honest opinion.
Before going into anything, I would love it if you guys check out my instagram (@mrsk_chronicles)! Follow me if you would like, no pressure! 🙂
To be honest, I’ve only learned of Secret last summer when I was visiting from Australia and a friend who used to live in US asked me to buy a couple Secret deordorants for her. That was when I first tried their Oh So Summerberry scent.
Secret has 11 scents in their Fresh collection and they come in both invisible solid and clear gel. Even though the deordorant was a small 0.5oz sample, I like that it’s small and easy to travel with. I could easily bring it to the gym with me. They sell the full size 2.6oz deordorant for $4.97 in stores.
So I’ve tried the deodorant out for a full day yesterday, here are my thoughts:
- It is invisible upon application, that’s always good!
- It smells wonderful – fresh and floral, but not overwhelming. The smell is way lighter than a perfume.
- It kept me smelling good all day! After a day in the sun, the scent was no longer strong, but there was still a very subtle hint of Cool Waterlily (yes, I smelled my underarms).
- I can’t say if it’s a antiperspirant – I still sweated, but it did feel like it reduced the wetness.
I compared it to Lady Speed Stick, which I’ve used since I was a teenager. Both brands are very similar, and Lady Speed Stick is available in many countries. After trying two different Secret deordorants, I honestly think I like Secret better now. I can’t remember a time when the scent of a Lady Speed Stick actually stuck with me till the end of the day.
For those wanting to try the Secret new Fresh Collection, please do! I’ve only received a sample size of the Cool Waterlily in invisible solid to review, I do wish they sent both a invisible solid and a clear gel so I could compare them.
