I am on the go all the time with 2 young kids, running here and there and everywhere. I grabbed this for our oldest daughter, loved the scent so much I had to buy myself one. It does keep me dry for my day, which is at least 12 hours. It does say clear on the label, but there is a whiteish residue. I do not mind this at all and am very pleased overall. Thanks suave forthis perfectly scented deodorant.
