My friend Lauren over at Beer Up Your Life recently convinced me to sign up for Influenster, a site where they send you products (samples and full sizes) for free and ask that you review the product. It’s such a great program because if the product is crap, it can help others not waste their hard-earned dollar. On the flip side, if it’s a great product this service can help promote it across the board and get people in the know. I recently got my first box for their #DoMore campaign with Degree’s MotionSense deodorant in Fresh Energy.
Let’s be real here, guys. Everyone needs to wear this stuff, but not everyone can use the same types. I believe this was Degree’s attempt at making a deodorant for women to help with long lasting protection and fragrance when exercising. Unfortunately, I’m not big on the whole exercise train like I should be, but I woke up this morning and thought, “Why not? Might as well try it since I’ve got it.”
Initial Thought: This actually smells really good. It’s not over powering and it’s not strong, but you can definitely smell it. For the first hour I had it on, I’d get a whiff of it every time I moved my arms. The strength of the smell has gone down since then. It glided on very smoothly and doesn’t appear to have left white markings on my clothes like many deodorants tend to do.
End of Day Thoughts: Overall, not bad of a product. It gets the job done and smells good while doing it. I can definitely see myself recommending this product to any of my female friends who are in the market for a deodorant that’s a step above your normal stick. Because I’m not a very active person, I think I’ll stick to my regular choice of Secret, but I would definitely keep this in mind for when I get my gym membership and start working up a sweat. Luckily, I’ve got a full size stick from Influenster to get me through a true trial period.
