a mom's review of secret extra strength deodorant

The deodorant that takes me from adventures with my boys to working at my desk without breaking a sweat. 


During the summer, my number one priority is to have a lot of quality time with my kids. They’re home all day and I want them to have my best hours, and for us to make really happy memories.

As a work from home mom, that can get a little tricky to fit in fun adventures AND get all my work done.

But I’m excited to partner with Secret Deodorant today because they’re on a mission to encourage women everywhere to stop settling and to REACH HIGHER, and I love that because I’m trying to do just that. I’m not settling for a sub-par summer with my kids just because I have to work; I’m just learning to prioritize and rearrange my schedule (which I’m grateful is very flexible) so I have time for both my kids and my work.

Also thank goodness for Secret Clinical Strength Invisible Solid which I use just once for all-day strong wetness protection. It’s a product I’ve had in my drawer for years, and I love it cause I can put it on in the morning, go adventure with my kids in the sunshine, and still be dry and fresh when I get home after lunch and have to dive into my work day.

This past week I’ve been thinking a lot about how summer FEELS. There are specific things I like to do during the Christmas season to make it feel like Christmas…turn on twinkle lights, play Christmas music, drink hot cocoa, burn a certain candle, turn the heat on in my house…you know, the things that make it feel magical.

Well Summer is totally that way for me too. Opening the windows, eating outside, spending hours at the pool, the smell of something grilling on the BBQ, wearing less makeup…these all make it feel summery to me.

You know what doesn’t feel summery to me? Sweating through my shirt.

So every morning I put on my Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant after my workout, and I literally stay dry and fresh through our trips to the park, the pool, the zoo, running through the sprinklers, or just playing games at home with the windows wide open. Then I’m ready to hit the ground running when our babysitter gets here after lunch and I head into work mode.
