I will admit it, I sweat. I often reapply deodorant during the day because I can feel wetness or worry about odour. I love Secret products and have found that they are the only ones that work for me. I have been using Secret Clinical recently because winter means bulky sweaters making me sweat even more (but staying warm). While I love aerosol Secret, I get that tell-tale white mark left and if I sweat too much, little beads of aerosol, so when BzzAgent offered me the chance to try Secret Scent Expressions antiperspirant and deodorant, I jumped at the chance.
Secret’s Scent Expression also comes in a solid, one I like but use others because I preferred them. The sample I was sent is a clear gel. My first thought was, oohhh slimy and drying time. To my surprise, Secret Scent Expressions actually dries quickly. You do need to wait a a bit for it to dry before putting your arms down though so it stays in place but less time than other gels I have tried. Just a click or two and you get this clear gel – no white marks on your clothes!
The Secret Scent Expressions promise:
Fresh & Fabulous. Express yourself with these bold, fun scents for all day odor protection. Each scent is unique- just like you and your friends. Find the right one to fit your mood and personality. Absorbs odour while a beautiful scent keeps you feeling fresh all day. Fun, bold scents now with even better protection. Secret Scent Expressions in Ooh-La-La Lavender scent goes on clear and feels dry in seconds.
Secret Scent Expressions does actually work quite well. As a gel I was surprised how it dried and lasted, but I found it was not quite enough to keep me dry all day. If you are not a heavy sweater and just want a regular deodorant, it will be fine and the lack of white marks is a definite plus.
I was not the biggest fan of the lavender scent. It did not have the usual lavender scent, it was kind of sweet and a little weird. I checked out a different scent at a store and it was nice. Maybe it is just personal preference, but I would not buy this scent again in any of their products. The packaging states 2-3 clicks of the gel is needed, but 2 clicks is a lot (the image above is two clicks) and I can’t ever see using three. Maybe I needed three for the extra protection but I imagine it would take a long time to dry with more clicks.
The Secret Outlast clear gel with long protection and a more natural scent would probably be more right for me in comparison to the Secret Scent Expressions.

unfortunately deodorants irritate my skin – the only one I have found I can use is a natural one
I have tried this same product and my thoughts were very similar – the lavender scent is weird (and not at all lavender) but the product worked really well; not QUITE enough for a 24 hr protection (I also sweat a lot with work and the gym), but a good product none the less.
Thanks for the review. I haven’t tried the gels yet. And I prefer a non-scented deodorant.
I am not a fan of gel deodorant, but glad to hear this one dries fast, I will look for it and give it a try.
