sweat too much
I’ve tried every brand under the sun, but nothing worked well enough. By the end of the day almost every day, I’d know that I was starting to smell slightly like a goat and try to not let anyone get too close to me.
All of that changed when I decided to try one of those clinical strength deodorants. There are a few to choose from now without a prescription, but I’m a sucker for cute names so I went with the Secret Clinical Strength Ooh-La-La-Lavendar. It was about double the price that I was used to paying for a stick of deodorant (roughly $10 instead of $5), but I was desperate and figured if it didn’t work, it wasn’t that much money down the tubes.The first time I put it on, I noticed that it left more of a white residue under my arms than normal deodorant does, so I just let it sink into my skin for a few minutes and then blotted the rest of it with a tissue so there weren’t white globs stuck in my pits all day. I loved the smell of it, seriously, “ooh la la!,” but what I loved even more was that by the end of the day, I still smelled totally lovely. No more goat smell for me!
I’ve been using the clinical strength deodorant pretty religiously for a few months now and won’t be turning back anytime soon. Yeah, it’s more expensive altogether, but I don’t think an extra $5 a month is a lot to pay for the smell of sweet freshness all day long.
