A few weeks ago you may seen my post about my first impressions of Secret`s Outlast Clear Gel Ooh-La-La-Lavender and how I was excited to try out the product. Well after trying this deodorant for a month now, I am finally able to give an honest review of it.
Before I start this review, I just want to say that I received Secret Outlast Clear Gel in Ooh-La-La-Lavender as a sample from BzzAgent. So thank you Secret and BzzAgent for allowing me to test this product out!
Before using Secret Outlast Clear Gel Ooh-La-La-Lavender, I was using Secret Invisible Solid pH Balanced Antiperspirant Deodorant Unscented everyday. I would only apply this in the morning with 2-3 coats and I was good to go for the day. The unscented smell did not interfere with the perfume I was wearing and but it did leave white marks on my dark clothes.
Background: This deodorant is meant to provide 48 hour odour protection free of white marks. It is designed with fast drying ingredients to evaporate in seconds and with its water-based formula, this allows the active ingredients to permeate sweat glands faster and more efficiently than invisible solid deodorants. Secret Outlast Clear Gel has been clinically tested to help stop odour before it starts and continually to detect odour and wetness. The pH of Secret Outlast minimizes odour-causing bacteria for longer-lasting, 48-hour protection.
Review: I used this deodorant every morning right after I showered for one month. As directed, I applied two swipes to each armpit. The scent I received was Ooh-La-La Lavender. Personally I found this scent to be quite strong and doesnt smell of lavender at all. Instead, I find it to smell a bit on the masculine side which is strange since this product is mainly targeted for females. When this scent is mixed with my body chemistry, it sadly creates an awful body odour smell; where I have been personally told that I smell bad and have seen kind people casually hold their hand to their nose instead of telling me directly that I stink. This product claims to give 48-hour odour protection but after trying this for so long, it doesnt seem to be the case.
As for whether this deodorant kept me dry, it also didnt. I found that at certain times of the day, my armpits would randomly feel moist which made me feel even more self-conscious. To prevent this, I even tried applying this deodorant on throughout the day, but I still was slightly sweaty. By applying this product so many times, I find that it runs out more quickly than invisible solid deodorants.
Even though there are a few cons I found, I personally found some things I liked about this product. Firstly, I like how fast this deodorant dried. I felt a cool sensation as it was drying and in maybe 3-4 seconds, the product dried completely. Another thing I liked was that it didnt leave white marks on my dark clothing like invisible solid deodorants did. Their claim of being free of white marks is definitely true. I loved how I didnt have to worry about walking around with white marks here and there.
If Secret could alter the formula of this product where odour and wetness protection works, then this product would be really good. And to also make their lavender scent a bit more feminine. I personally havent smelt their other scents, so I cant comment on whether they smell good or not. I would personally stick to the unscented one since it seems more of a safer option. Overall, I am glad to have tried this product. But the question is, will I be buying this again? If Secret changed their formula where their claims would, I would buy this product right away. But as for now, I am probably going to stay away but am interested in trying their unscented version.
Have you tried Secret Outlast Clear Gel yet?
