New Advances in Staying Fresh: Degree Motion Sense & Secret Natural Mineral

Secret Natural Mineral, Degree Women Motion Sense, Deodorant, Review
Have you noticed that new technology is sneaking into our deodorants? Two of the newest releases are pictured in this image, and rather than take a pic of the 2 products I should have just taken a picture of a giant crystal and one of those watches that runs off of your kinetic energy. Because that's what I think of when I look at them.

What makes these deodorants so different from their counterparts? And did it make a difference?

Secret Natural Mineral
Using Calcium Carbonate, in addition to Aluminum as the active ingredient, is present in this one to help absorb scent. Calcium Carbonate is a natural mineral and it likely sounds familiar. It's the active ingredient in your Tums. I found that this new Secret wasn't really any different from my normal daily Secret (I usually use their Fresh Effects). Fresh scent, feels good going on, gets the job done.

Degree Woman Motion Sense
Motion Sense still uses the same active ingredients as pretty much every other anti-perspirant/deodorant on the market (the Aluminum), but rather than simply adding it to the formula they've encapsulated it somehow. When you move these little packets break open, and you have more active ingredient available for use. Almost like continually reapplying all day long. I think this works great when you're active.

This is perfect for the days that I'm running around at work. Love it. If I ever have an issue it's at the end of the day, and that is when I can tell that the Degree is still working as I run around seeing patients. However, I did notice that it doesn't seem to work as well as the Secret on days that I'm not active. If I'm having a quiet day at home blogging and hanging out with my baby (who is still too young to be running around, she's only about 11 weeks old), it doesn't seem to work as well.

I noticed you told another viewer to try the Secret Waterproof Clinical, is it safe to assume neither of these are as good as that one?

Thanks,

I think it depends a little on whether this issue is sweating or odor. If the problem is odor, any of them are fine. For sweating, which is usually the problem when we're under stress/pressure, definitely the Secret Waterproof Clinical. There's a "sport" version as well, I think that's somewhat mid-way between the regular products and the waterproof, but if sweating through it is a problem I'd definitely go with the Waterproof!
