I had always heard good things about Degree, and I thought that it was supposed to be a better brand than the Speed Stick that I usually use. So I decided to give it a try. But after using two or three sticks, I found that it did not work well for me at all. It would go on smoothly, and I never had a skin reaction or anything like that while using it. But it just was not effective. It is supposed to be an antiperspirant, but it would not do much to help stop me from sweating or cover the sweat. I do sweat more than the average person, but Speed Stick works much better than this Degree did. Because it did not do much for sweat, it also did not do much to cover the bad smell that can come with it (especially on a hot and humid day). So all-around, this Degree antiperspirant and deodorant failed miserably at both of its main jobs. I do not plan to ever try using it again, even if someone gave it to me for free.
