Has anyone else tried Secret Clinical Strength deodorant and been disappointed?! and what is the best you have found?

I sweat a lot to begin with, but pregnant...I am way worse! Not only was the Secret Clinical way more expensive than any other deodorant, but the active ingredient was only about 2% stronger than the other Secret products and other brands (most are 18%, the clinical strength was 20%).

Is there anything that really works?!

  • I had a clear gel that seemed to work really well - Lady Speed Stick clear gel. There is a downfall to it though - it bleaches your clothes!

  • Yeah the Secret isn't so good. Degree Clinical is better. But I use a men's anti-perspirant (Gillette).

  • I can try. I just hate standing in front of a classroom of adults or children worrying about if I am sweating through my shirt! I have even tried prescription with no real luck. Egh!

    Once a week at bedtime and *no* sweat all week!  This stuff is amazing.

  • I tried it and it helped, but I still sweated ALOT. I had to go to the dr to get a prescription antiperspirant.
