Stress Stinks, Literally! Secret Clinical Strength (Review & Walmart Gift Card Giveaway)

Whether it’s caused by a work deadline, chaotic day with the kids, or visit from the in-laws, stress stinks… literally! Out of the three causes of sweat—heat, activity, and stress—stress sweat has been proven to smell the worst. 

Luckily, Secret® Clinical Strength has got you covered when stress strikes. Moisture activated, and formulated with odor-neutralizing ingredients that release a fresh scent, Secret Clinical Strength is proven to give you 4 times* the protection against stress sweat.

 

I was recently provided with a Walmart gift card from Secret in order to check out one of their two new varieties of Secret Clinical Strength deodorants.  Now available in two new forms, clear gel and invisible solid, Secret Clinical Strength will help keep you feeling dry, fresh, and fearless all day long!  I chose to try the invisible solid, I just prefer a solid deodorant over the gel form.

I love how Secret Clinical Strength left me feeling cool, dry, and confident all day long.  I didn't have to worry about odor or wetness, and it left my underarms soft and smooth.  Whether I was at work, enjoying a family outing on the lake, or working out - the results were the same...  

Secret Clinical Strength helps protect you against the three major causes of sweat: 

  • Heat
  • Activity
  • Stress Sweat

Why does stress sweat smell worse?

  • Sweat caused by physical activity and temperature is produced by eccrine sweat glands, and is 99% water and 1% nutrients
  • Stress sweat produced from the apocrine gland increases bacterial, and Water + Nutrients + Bacteria = Odor

Secret Clinical Strength is available in three varieties and four scents:
  • New! Clear Gel -  Leaves NO white marks!
  • New! Invisible Solid -  Goes on dry and stays dry!
  • Smooth Solid - Contains skin smoothing conditioners!

Scents:
  • Sport Fresh
  • Completely Clean
  • Powder Protection
  • Ooh-la-la Lavender

 Visit www.nostresssweat.com for the scoop on stress sweat!

*vs. wetness protection required of an ordinary antiperspirant

I think I would go with either the Ooh la la lavender or the completely clean scent. Tough to say without sniffing them!

Lisa Brown said...

Lisa Brown said...

My MIL really does stress me out; hard person to deal with on a daily basis.

Abigail said...

I stress out about time management - there aren't enough hours in each day to get everything done that I want to!

Julie Wood said...

I would love to try the Completely Clean in Invisible solid so there would be not sign of it on my underarms and it would not get on my clothes. Sounds like a very good deodorant.

Julie Wood said...

What stresses me out the most, is working part time and then having to be solely responsible for taking care of an Elderly parent with dementia. None of his other children will offer to help. It is very stressful.

Amy Dooley said...

I am really excited about trying the clear secret clinical and I would probably like the ohh-la-lavendar scent!

Amy Dooley said...

My part time job is very stressful! On top of that, time management, and trying to balance it all - being a good mom, keeping the house in order, ect.

I would most like to try the Powder Protection scent in invisible solid.

Rafflecopter name is Tiffani Jade

Marti Tabora said...

I think I would like the smooth solid in the sport fresh scent. I think that would be a scent that I would like as long as it isn't too masculine smelling. Sometimes the sporty scents are somewhat manly.

Marti Tabora said...

My job stresses me out the most, sometimes I feel on the verge of a meltdown while at work. Gotta love those bosses.

Amy Orvin said...

I'd like to try the Sport Fresh scent because I am very active and seeing the word sport lets me know I will be very well protected

Amy Orvin said...

Certain family members stress me out and any kind of home improvements with strange men coming in and out the house.

Mahdi Martin said...

I would like to try completely clean, because I'm sensitive to fragrances. They give me a rash, usually.

Mahdi Martin said...

What stresses me out the most is when my mom calls me in a panic. Sometimes she calls obsessively. I have five siblings, but it's really just two of us helping her since she had a stroke. It's really difficult sometimes, mostly for my mom, who struggles every day.

Amelia Drew said...

I would try the invisible solid in completely clean. I usually like the classic scents and something that is not too strong of a smell. I also don't like the gel because it feels sticky. sweepsamelia@hotmail.com

Laura said...

I would probably choose either sport fresh or completely clean. I've been wanting to try this product, but it's a good bit more expensive than regular deodorant. Would love to try it!

akronugurl said...

Courtney B said...

i like completely clean gel formula since that seems like the best cleanest smell for me!

Heather! said...

Powder Protection would most likely be my favorite Secret scent because I like the smell of baby powder. It's so light and clean and fresh-smelling.

Heather! said...

I don't know about the most, but some things that stress me out are work pressures, household chores like paying bills on time, and family relationship strains.

Tj and Amy said...

I would love to try the Completely Clean, Clear Gel formula. I love the gel deodorants because they don't show as much on my clothes.

Tj and Amy said...

Not having enough time to get things done. especially around the house stresses me out. Not having my husband around to help with the kids or the house since he works long hours also stresses me out.

Chavonne Harvey said...

I'd love to try the Ooh-la-la Lavender scent. I hope it keeps me relaxed all day.

Tricia Nightowlmama said...

powder protection would certainly be my daughters choice. I've been purchasing this brand for yrs and now my daughter really needs it to feel confident and relaxed about her over active sweat glands

Robin O said...

I would especially like to try the Sport Fresh scent. I could definitely use a clinical strength deodorant! Thank you!!

Robin O said...

Work stresses me out the most...deadlines and the general workload...I am a stress case far too often...

Barbara Montag said...

I tend to get mega stressed out towards the end of the month when we're running low on cash.

Susan Christy said...

I would like to try the lavender scent. Lavender is one of my favorite - I use lavender pillow mist at night to help me sleep, but it's just a very soothing fragrance and I am sure I would like this.

CindyWindy2003 said...

I am actually wearing the Ooh-la-la Lavender scent for Secret Clinical, the one I want to try next is Sport Fresh. Thanks!

CindyWindy2003 said...

What stresses me out the most is having too many things on my list, errands, seeing friends, family, cleaning house, books to read, etc... I'm a checker the more I check the better I feel.

Tabathia said...

The powder protection because I usually purchase powder scented deodorant because I find the scent pleasing.

I would like to try the Invisible Solid in the Ooh-la-la Lavender scent because it goes on dry and stays dry.

I get stressed by my coupons expiring before I get to use them. The other thing that stresses me is that they make you buy 2 of an item so you are spending more just to save something. I wish the manufacturers would cut out this practice since in effect, we are only saving on the advertising.

Jennifer Lachman said...

I want to try the ooh la la lavender and I need it because it is so freaken hot outside in the summer. I don't want to smell like I've been at the gym all day.

Jennifer Lachman said...

I get stressed out when there are to many things going on at once. I know moms are supposed to be good multi-taskers, but I think I missed that day in mom school!

Janna Johnson said...

Ooh La La Lavender for me!!

Tara said...

I cannot stand to have a messy house. It really stressed me out when my kids won't help clean up their messes!

The Attic Girl Site said...

I would like to try the sport fresh scent because I think it would have a nice smell & help with activity during the hot summer months.

amanda whitley said...

i think i would like the Ooh la la lavender scent the best. I also like clean scents so maybe the Completely Clean scent too!

amanda whitley said...

there is sadly alot that stresses me out. most of the time its bills and money.

Amanda Sakovitz said...

I would say men and money are the two primary stresses in my life. There is always some issue.

Wendy Rozema said...

I'd get the Ooh-la-la Lavender b/c I really like the smell of the lavender scent!
