I'm picky when it comes down to deodorants, because there are certain things I'm looking for specifically in them; one, it must not clash with my cologne, two, it must be invisible, and three, it simply must work. Bad under arm odor isn't just completely nasty but it's also embarrassing. Degree Adrenaline Series: Adventure Invisible Stick gets two out of three, but the one it misses is kind of an issue with me.
It's said that the product:
- is designed to respond to increases in adrenaline, releasing extra bursts of fragrance when you sweat.
I'll address the billing in a little bit. Now first of all, it does suppress the bad underarm odor. I do sweat a lot, and I have used this in my regular clothes and I've never noticed the smell from the product or any bad odors from myself. I have used it during weight training and running with good results. Therefore, in two areas it checks out well enough. But the main issue is that the stick is not invisible. Your armpits would look like you have George Washington in the headlock. The deodorant is too flaky for my taste, but at least it hasn't damaged any of my shirts from what I've seen. Now for the increase in adrenaline, I just don't buy into that. I have done my runs for way over an hour, and after taking off my shirt preparing for a shower, I still never caught this incredible smell. So I just plain don't believe it.
At least the deodorant washes off fairly easy, and I never noticed any of it stuck in my pits after showering. Perhaps it's just because I scrub so well. In any case, if you can get over the fact it's not invisible, then Degree Adrenaline Series isn't that bad of a product. But I'm going back to Old Spice though.
