I'm a little fussy about under-arm deodorants or anti-perspirants. Those products billed as "solid" seem waxy and too hard whereas the liquid rotating ball type applications sometimes seem sloppy and wasteful. A perfect compromise I have found to be ***Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel***.

**WHAT THIS IS:**

At first blush, ***Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel ***is basically aluminum zirconium octachlorohydrex (an anti-perspirant) blended and buffered by inactive ingredients which include water, denatured alcohol, propylene glycol, cyclopentasiloxane, dimethicone, trisiloxane, calcium chloride, PEG/PPG-1818 dimethicone, and fragrance to create a soft, pliable, but easily controlled antiperspirant which comes in a variety of scents, including the one I chose -- ***Ooh-La-La-Lavender***. I thought the fragrance was a bit odd but not unpleasing and it seemed to afford effective protection without being too much of a good thing.

***Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel ***is packed in a 2.7 plastic bottle which is very similar in appearance to Secret Solid Deodorants and basically is applied in the same way -- by turning the knob at the bottom of the bottle to the right to push the product up and express it out of the container. (You will have to turn it for **a while **the first time to get the gel to the point where it can be squeezed out the holes at the top.) I found that it was easier to apply this product if I used my fingers to apply the gel to my "pits."

**MY VIEWPOINT:**

We tend to change a little as we get older and not all the news is bad. For some reason, I perspire much less under my arms than I used to so I don't really need the really serious "clinical strength" formulae any more. ***Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel ***does a good job for me and I would recommend it for most people. Prices may vary but basically this is a relatively pleasant, economical solution to a not-so-glamorous part of our personal grooming routine.

This deodorant wasn't one of my favorite deodorants, for sure.  It does ok controlling sweat-wise but I wish I'd made a different decision when shopping for deodorant.  The gel, for one, takes awhile to dry.  I feel like I have to hold my arms up in the air until it dries.  I also feel like it's not there, which could be a good or bad thing, I guess.  I just feel like I'm not getting any protection after a few hours, and I feel like I need to re-apply it.  I've never been a heavy sweater and although I use deodorant daily, it's not a necessity for me. So to feel the need to re-apply more than once a day indicates to me that the sweat protection might not be the best for me. The bottle is cute and sparkly, and the smell is nice.  I like my deodorant to almost be like a perfume.  Not that strong, necessarily, I just like my deodorant to have a noticeable smell, even after it's been on all day which this deodorant does not do.  (Unless I sweat it out somehow).  Anyway, I got the lavender scent and I'd have to say it's my favorite scent out of this particular line of deodorants. So the scent is pretty nice, and the bottle is pretty.  The sweat protection is so-so.  I do, however like that gels don't leave white marks on my clothes.  It's nearly impossible for me to put a black shirt on without getting deodorant streaks all over it. I would not buy this product again and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. It's average, but not great.

Perfect

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

I bought this on a whim because my old deodorant was leaving white marks on my clothes so I decided to get a gel deodorant to hopefully solve that problem. Going to my local drugstore, this was what caught my attention so I just bought it. I got it in the scent summer berry I think which by the way smells really nice. It has a fruity sweet smell, just what I like in a body spray or perfume so if there is a body mist in that scent, I will definitely get it because I am just so in love with the scent. Anyway, back to the actual deodorant, I'd say it is a pretty good deodorant. I think it does a decent job of controlling the sweat smell and underarm wetness, but not so much sweating. It doesn't last a super long time but it's pretty decent, it lasts me through the day. It could dry a little faster after you put it on because it does stay wet for about a minute but that's not a major problem so I can overlook it. Also, the product that comes out with one twist is a little more than what I need. So overall, this a great gel deodorant that is pretty affordable.

It's easy to use and works like a charm.

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

This product works very well. All you have to do it turn the bottom roller counter-clockwise and spread it under your armpits. Some advice when using this product is to let the gel dry before putting your shirt on. A faster way to do this is to flap your arms several times until it feels dry enough and comfortable enough. The gel dries on your armpits and it definitely works. I did vigorous exercise while wearing it and I still smelled fine in that area. There was hardly any underarm odor at all.

Secret Scent Expressions is a Good Deodorant

By 

from Tallahassee, FL

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

Overall, I really like Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel. It has a nice scent. I got the deodorant in the mystic melon The smell is light, nothing overpowering, and it certainly won't clash with any other perfume you might want to wear. It also goes on smooth. I love that there is no white residue left on your skin or clothes. Most importantly, it is also effective keeping me sweat and odor free (I wish it lasted a little longer).

There are two things that I really don't like about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel. I have found that with my sensitive skin, the gel tends to irritate my skin the first couple seconds after it is applied. Though I did just discover that they make it in a solid, so that might help people with sensitive or irritated skin. It also takes longer to dry. I would like to be able to put on the deodorant and go, but this takes a minute or two to dry.

I would recommend this Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel to others.

I was lucky enough to receive a sample of this product.

I love Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel!

By

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

My favorite deodorant is the Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel. I like to use the unscented version so that I don't have tans of different scents on, such as from my shampoo and conditoner and soap and lotion, etc. I feel the Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel wroks very well and never have problems with underarm odor when using it. I like this type of deodorant in particular because the gel does not leave marks on my clothes. With the solid forms of deodorant I would often get white streaks on my clothes when I put them on or if I changed my mind about what to where and had to take them off again too. Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel does take a minute to dry, but I don't see marks on my clothes even if I am impatient or hurried and can't wait for it to dry. I would recommend this deodorant.

There is no disturbing odor with Secret Scent Expressions

By 

from Honaker, VA

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

I have been hooked, that is on the Secret Scent Expression deodorant from the time it was first put on the shelf.  There is alot of different scents to choose from. Myself I chose them all I have no specific one.  Secret has always done the job on keeping down body odors and stoping excessive prespiration.  Even on the hottest days when I am mowing and weed eating I am still dry and smelling like I just stepped out of the shower.  I can put Secret Scent Expression on my body and feel fresh all day long.  The scents are great as well as the effects of controling the odor.  I would advise any female to choose Secret Scent Expressions it is definetly a boost of freshness every time you apply it.  Plus you can get it in the invisible type, which in that case it leaves no messy residue under your arms or on your clothes.  There is nothing more embarrassing than having white streaks under your arm on your clothes or having big clots of white powder stuck under your arm. Like I said I would give the advise to every female to Purchase and try the Secret Scent Expressions.  Pick and choose the type you like and give it a try and see if you will feel fresh all day and if you dont like the clutter on your body or clothes choose the invisible gel.  I can not think of a single bad thing to say about this brand of deodorant except they could of came out with this brand alot sooner!  The price is reasonable to the other brands of deodorant you really do get what you buy when you buy Secret Scent Expressions.

I am undecided about Secret's Crystal Clear gel...

By 

from Omaha, NE

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

When it is time to get another deodorant at the store, I always buy Secret. I don't know why. I stand there, and I look at all the brands, and then I go back to Secret. And then I look at all the kinds of Secret. And then I am totally confused. I want a deodorant I can put on in the morning, and for it to last through the day or at least through a morning workout. Usually, Secret does this. I am not so worried about preventing sweating (not so much an issue for me), just odor. But then I remember that I hate it when that white stuff gets all over my clothes if I use a traditional stick. So this time I tried the gel. It is very sticky! It does take a while to dry, although the only reason to wait for it to dry is so that your arm pits don't feel like they are sticking to your clothes. And I guess that sometimes I feel like if I don't wait for it to dry, it kind of wipes off and then I am needing more deodorant after an hour or two. I am not terribly jazzed about the scent -- I have a berry scent, and who thinks armpits should smell like berries? I will go back to a shower or powder scent next time. Still, I am glad there is no white powder all over my clothes.

Smells great, if only it lasted a bit longer

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

This is a bit more expensive than I would normally go for, but the scents are great!! The clear gel never stains my clothes. The only bad thing is that it doesn't last all day, it must be me...I find men's deoderants work better :P but this is definitely what I like and I don't mind spending my money on it.

The Secret is out- Secret's gotten even better!

By 

from Northern, FL

Comments about Secret Scent Expressions Crystal Clear Gel - All Scents:

**Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant **is my mainstay deodorant. Why?


1. **Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant** is a *clear *gel which means that it won't stain my blouses or dresses.  

2. **Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant** glides on my underarms with ease and feels cool on touch. Just twist the bottom of the container and watch the gel push itself up through the small holes of the applicator. ****

3. **Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant **comes in several fragrances. Right now I am using *Totally Tropical *but I think *Ooh-la-la Lavender *is my favorite scent with *Cherry Mischief *as a close second.

4. **Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant **works for me. I am a very heavy perspirer.[I think I made up that word] It lasts for hours and that is more than I can say for most deodorants. Sometimes, I will use a dab of [Certain Dri][1] for added insurance. 


**Bottom Line:**

**Secret Crystal Clear Scent Expressions Deodorant** is the best *everyday* deodorant that I have found. It doesn't dry out my underarms and it is effective *most of the time*.

**Ingredients:**

*Active Ingredients:* Aluminum Zirconium Octachlorohydrex Gly (16 %)

*Inactive Ingredients:* Water, Alcohol Denat., Cyclopentasiloxane, Propylene Glycol, Dimethicone, Trisoloxane, Calcium Chloride, PEG/PPG 18/18 Dimethicone, Fragrance
