Got my newest Bzz Campaign going - Secret Clear Gel Deodorant in Ooh-La-La Lavender scent.
So let me start off by telling you that I was not really that excited about this one. I have tried gel deodorants before and was always sorely disappointed. The messy application, the sticky feel, poor odor and wetness protection and my absolute favorite - flapping my arms for twenty minutes trying to get it to dry. Let's just say that 100% of the gel deodorants I have tried in the past went into the trash after only a few uses.
I'm a solid kinda girl, and since they've been coming out with better deodorants that will not leave white marks, I surely thought that a solid girl I would stay.
I was wrong.
The first thing I did was smell it. It's always the first thing I do with everything, because scent is very important to me and if it's the least bit overpowering or 'perfumey' back on the shelf it goes. I do generally pick out the powder or lavender scents, so this one is right up my alley.
The scent is soft and dreamy, like you were walking by an open window with lavender drying on the sill and a light breeze just happened to blow the right way. I would stop to inhale and enjoy. That is how I felt when I smelled this deodorant.
The scent lingers, too. All day long I get a nice little hit of lavender when I move around. I can't really smell most deodorants after a few hours of wear, and for this one to be consistent really blew me away. It wasn't really strong in the morning, okay in the afternoon and practically gone in the evening - it stayed the same all through the day well past bedtime!
Just a click or two is definitely enough to get you through the day. And it dries fast! The first time I applied it I resigned myself to the flapping and the waiting, but then I realized that while I had switched over to the other underarm, the first was already dry! Not even sticky or tacky, dry and ready to go. Impressive.
The other thing I was really taken aback by was the fact that it actually works! I really felt drier and fresher all day, and as I mentioned before, it really outdoes itself on the whole longevity thing. I still felt fresh while I was crawling into bed, a full 15 hours after I put it on.
