So I don’t know what you all use but for years now I’ve been using the regular old Secret solid…you know, the opaque white stuff. Turns out Secret is discontinuing this product… I heard it straight from the horse’s mouth aka an email response to my questioning why the variety is down to just baby powder now. They do say that they base their decisions on consumer demand so if other bees are freaking, maybe we can get them to hold onto just the one type.
Well, I wanted to see what you Bees who sweat through every other thing that Secret has out, have done. I’m trying their clinical strength stuff now but even with reapplying the next morning, it doesn’t hold back the sweat the way the original did. So I’m in the search for a new deodorant while waiting for the remaining stocks of my old faithful to dry up.
Any advice fellow bees?

Have you tried the Flawless Renewal by Secret? I got it at Costco in a 4 pack and it has been great with sweat and odor for me. I have never had a huge problem with sweat though.

I use Lady Mitchum. It comes in a light greenish tube thingie and is completely clear. NO DEODORANT MARKS! 🙂 It is amazing and it smells great too. I have used it for years. They have several different scents. You should try it!

Several years ago I had some problems with severe sweating, and the product I found that worked the best is Certain Dri. You apply it at night before you go to bed (and I used a regular scented deodorant in the morning, since it reduces the sweating but doesn’t really give you a “fresh” feeling). It really did seem to work well, and I know a lot of other people give it equally rave reviews. It’s a bit more expensive than the regular stuff but you can still find it at any drugstore or Target or Walmart. My only disappointment with it is that it kind of bleached a few of my t-shirts, so I would be careful of that.
Since then though, my “problem” has gotten a bit more “under control,” lol, now I love the Secret Soft Solid (or Conditioning Solid it’s sometimes called).

I use the “clinical strength” stuff at night (secret, dove, ban, not really picky) then in the mornings I use the Ban roll-on. It’s been going pretty well – I only notice the sweating issue when I’m nervous, and I guess I’ll deal with that. But, summer is around the corner, so that will be the official test of my new regimen.
I tried the Certain Dri, and a prescriptive, but they irritated my skin so much that in the middle of the night I had to get up and wash off whatever remained.
