I was searching for a new deoderant and had a few factors I was considering. I wanted one that would smell good, have good performance and have a clear glide on that would glide on easily and not leave any residue on myself or my clothes. In searching on the shelves the packaging of the Secret platinum line was intriguing, they looked very pretty. I am a huge vanilla fragrance fan so I was drawn to the Vanilla Chai brand. I lifted the lid and saw it was the clear glide on that I like and it mentioned being residue free on the package which I also liked. I was able to smell the vanilla fragrance when I lifted the lid and I liked the way it smelled so I decided to purchase it. Since purchasing it I just love this deoderant. I love how it doesn't smell like a deoderant but more like a scented lotion that I would normally purchase due to the smell, it just smells great and the fragrance stays with you throughout hte day but isn' t overpowering which is nice too. I think overall it is extremely effective but I have noticed in stressful situations it does leave me sweating a bit more than I'd like but overall it is a very effective deoderant.
