Waterproof Deodorant from Secret. Really.
That title isn't a lie. I thought someone was trying to be funny when I first heard that Secret had created a waterproof deodorant. Well, it's not joke, and the stuff really is waterproof.
I tried to really put this deodorant through the wringer (metaphorically speaking, not literally) to test it out. I used it during "normal" days, super warm/humid days and finally applied it to dry skin and then stood under the shower to wet it, and went about my normal day. In all instances it seemed to work exactly the same, which means I wasn't remotely smelly, wet or gross. It was perfect. I haven't tried it out with prolonged water exposure, but it did tolerate being under the direct shower without issues. It has a very light, fresh scent that is subtle and I didn't notice it after a few minutes.
I've decided this is my new summer must have item (ironic to be reviewing it after Labor Day, but C'Est la Vie). It is definitely the deodorant you should be using if you're heading to a beach/pool or you're stuck in a rainforest.
