What’s that smell?! It’s the Ooh-La-La Lavender deodorant by Secret! Haha totally sounds like an ad, but it’s not. I just want to introduce you to my favorite (at the moment) gel deodorant! In this post I’ll be reviewing this amazing deodorant that I’ve been using ever since I visited the United States for the first time about three years ago (how the time flies…!).
Secret is a very famous deodorant brand in the US, that unfortunately doesn’t get sold in Europe (at least not in regular stores). Many European beauty bloggers rave about Secret and my American boyfriend always preaches that ‘American deodorants are so much better than European ones’. So when I was in the US for the first time I had try out an ‘American deodorant stick’.
While browsing through the shelves in a random drugstore ‘Ooh-La-La Lavender’ caught my attention, because of it’s pretty packaging and the words ‘clear gel’. I’m not a big fan of deodorant in general: spray deodorants irritate my skin and in my opinion usually smell too strong, while sticks make my armpits feel dried-out. Gel seemed like the best and most refreshing option out there, so I decided to give it a try.
Now let me start by saying that I don’t sweat heavily (pshhh that is because you don’t work out! Yeah I mean you there Dutchie. That girl sitting behind her laptop typing away haha!). No all jokes aside, it’s just the truth. Why am I telling you this? Well, because if you do sweat heavily and are reading this trying to find a deodorant that can tame your over-excited armpits than this review might not be valid for you. I’m not saying that this deodorant is not going to work for you. It might, but I’m not in a position to accurately test that for you. I will say however to just give Ooh-La-La Lavender a try!
Even if I’m not a heavy sweater, my armpits do get smelly from time to time. So far Ooh-La-La Lavender has been amazing at masking my underarm odor! After I applying the deodorant my armpits seem to stop sweating completely. Another thing I like about this deodorant is that it does not leave marks on your clothing. I don’t even wait for it to completely dry (which is does quite fast) before putting on a shirt.
However, the best thing about the Ooh-La-La Lavender is hands down its long durability. It lasts me more than four months. I must say though that I only apply once a day and sometimes even skip a day. In the beginning the deodorant seems to go really fast, but somehow it just keeps coming out (it’s magic!).
