Deodorant. If there’s one thing my little black dresses hate more than anything, it’s deodorant. Like most women, I have several go-to LBDs in my wardrobe that have gotten me through any number of occasions. Besides being flattering, versatile and, well, black, there’s one thing all of my LBDs have in common: a semi-permanent white mark where the fabric rubs against my deodorant (see the not-so-glamorous evidence below).
Not only are deodorant white marks unsightly, they’re also extremely difficult to remove. Water won’t do it — and most of my LBDs are dry clean only anyway. Rubbing a dry cloth against it can remove some of the white stuff, but never entirely. And through all my many years of wearing deodorant, I have yet to find a truly “clear” option that won’t leave behind any residue. Until now.
Secret Outlast Clear Gel was created for exactly the purpose of combatting white marks. It took a couple days to get used to the gel formula since I’m so accustomed to solid deodorant sticks, but I’m thrilled to say that this formula truly is clear! No residue is left behind on clothes or visible on my underarms. The product claims superior odor and wetness protection which I can personally attest to.
Clearly I’m not the only one who’s experienced a white marks fail and Secret has created a series of pretty funny videos that parody the mishap. One of my favorites is shown below.
If you’re not using Secret Outlast Clear Gel, you’ve likely experienced a White Marks Fail moment of your own. Tweet your #WhiteMarksFail at @SecretDeodorant and try Secret Outlast Clear Gel for 48 hour odor and wetness protection - and no white marks.
While your face can’t miss what its never had, you certainly will have no excuse not to at least try out a face mist by the end of this post. Why am I such a face mist advocate? Before I knew that a face mist is similar in nature to a toner, infuses nutrients into the skin, and can even help set makeup, I was not a mist-believer. Surely it was another hyped up product that would provide minimal results, I thought.
After testing out the featured five face mists, I slowly began changing my opinion of face mists. I began using the Skyn Iceland Artic Face Mist and fell hard for the refreshing feel of the spray on my face at the end of a hot day. I took Jurlique’s Rosewater Balancing Mist with me when I was traveling to help combat dry and dull skin, the scent providing a little aromatherapy for me. I even started keeping the Mario Badescu Facial Spray in my refrigerator in the summer months.
I started to notice the actual skin care benefits, like the extra glow that L’occitane Immortelle Brightening Face Mist created for my skin at the end of a long, stressful day. By the time I confirmed those makeup setting rumors, my collection expanded to five face mists, including my most recent antioxidant-packed discovery, the Spadet Nutrient Rich Facial Spray. What started as what I believed to be a skin care product fad trial turned into a refreshing, skin enhancing experience, leaving me to conclude that you all need at least one face mist in your skin care routine this summer.
