I have another influenster-sponsored post today. In the spring VoxBox I received a full-size antiperspirant/deodorant, and let me just say, I LOVE THIS. Like seriously, in love.
I don’t tend to go for gel formulas – I find them to be too sticky, and take forever to dry before I want to get dressed. Not this one. The scent, “completely clean”, is perfect for me, as it smells fresh. No more pit stains! And I’m even back in hot, humid Boston, so this has really been put to the test.
It is a little chilly upon application, but that hasn’t been a problem for me with this hot weather. It’s actually pretty refreshing, and not to mention awakening!
This is also good for keeping the underarm area clear – and I will expand – but just giving a TMI warning :). Before I received this VoxBox, I had been using a different antiperspirant/deodorant, one that was made to be clinical and prevent sweating, and will remain unnamed. It was white, which was fine with me as I usually put my deodorant on a few minutes before I get dressed. Well, a few days after using it, I had this painful LUMP under my armpit, which at first I thought was just an ingrown hair. After days of hot salt compresses, it finally popped, and OMG – the junk that came out of it was the deodorant. A massive amount of it from one pea-size lump. Yeah, no thanks. All set.
Thankfully, that doesn’t happen with the Secret Outlast formula. It is clean, fresh smelling, and doesn’t even cause white marks. Can’t beat that! I will TOTALLY buy more of this when I run out, and now I am a believer in the gel formula. At least for hot summer 🙂
