I've been a Secret deodorant user for a long time now. I've tried other brands but for some reason Secret has always been my favorite. It's one of the few that I can depend upon to work well, work long and never let me down no matter how hot or sticky I might get in a day.

Normally I use a solid, invisible Secret but when I ran out recently, I decided to try Secret Platinum Gel. This 48g product looks as though it could get messy, given that the gel is a very soft, oozy consistency as it comes out of the four large openings in the top. You don't need to expel very much of this however; to go a long way. The first time I used it I thought "eww, cold!" but it goes on quickly, dries rapidly and so far I've worn it with very dark tops and not a single trace of deodorant has been left behind on my clothes.

This particular brand claims to provide 24 hour long lasting protection and it does deliver. The scent is a very fresh smelling one, I loved it when I smelled it in the store (yes I'm one of those who sniffs soaps, deodorants and perfumes!) It is subtle enough that I haven't found it to mix overpoweringly with any other scent I might be wearing later in the day and even if I wear no other scents, I know that my deodorant doesn't smell so terrible that it can't pass for a very light perfume of its own.

I don't know if this particular product will last as long as my solids usually do, but overall, it's a product I will purchase again. The scents it comes in are quite varied and my youngest daughter purchased one in Fresh Cucumber which actually doesn't smell too terrible either.

My Secret - protects me every time and so far, I've no reason to switch to any others for awhile.
