Something Stinketh

Have you ever found yourself standing in this isle of the grocery store or super target, mouth slightly ajar, overwhelmed with where to even begin?
I have! In fact, every couple of weeks I find myself standing right here, eyes glazing over as I look at all of the options that promise incredible results. As U2 would say, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.”

Which leaves me no choice but to implore you to join me in the fight against sweaty pits in the south. I’m tired of throwing money away on products that leave me feeling less than “fresh.” Help a sister out. What do you use and why do you love it?

I know there are some gals out there using men’s deodorant. I’m not opposed to that. Come on! Share your secret. The only thing worse than bad breath is smelling “tired” as my grandmother would say.

Before you start flooding the comments with helpful suggestions, see how many of the slogans you can correctly match with it’s brand of deodorant or as I affectionately call it, “el stinketh repelente.”

Give it your best guess…(hint: there are more answers than slogans. I couldn’t make it too easy)

Possible answers: Almay, Ban, Dove, Secret, Sure, Gillette, Rexona, Axe, Arrid

“Raise your hand if you’re sure!”

“Strong enough for a man. But made for a woman.”

“It won’t let you down.”

“Dare to bare your even-toned underarms.”

“Outstanding protection against odor and wetness.”

Giving you the confidence to handle whatever the day has in store.” 

Ok, now you can answer this short poll. Who doesn’t love a great poll?!

  1. I’m always in awe of the $10+ ones, I guess I make it work with whatever, but it’s usually normal Dove or Degree of some sort. Although I do use Kel’s old spice “swagger” when I’m out, and it does make me sing “moves like jagger” (swagger rhymes w jagger) all day long.

    So you could go that way just to have your own theme song.

    • LOL! I am laughing so hard!!! I do like Degree.
      Maybe I have unrealistic expectations?
      I think I’m going to have to try old spice just for the added pep in my step! 🙂

  2. I usually get whatever is on sale or comes in a twin pack. A couple days ago I scored a three pack of Secret for $ 2.70! How awesome is that? Good luck finding the perfect one!

  3. This is a very funny post. Have you tried the clinical version of the leading brands? I saw with my own eyes what big difference they make. I’m not from the south though…

    • HA! I know, it is rather ridiculous, but I’m just keepin’ it real. I have not tried the clinical version. Are you telling me that peeps in other parts of the country sweat as much as we do down south?!

      • I misread your question at first, thought that you asked if we sweat down south (which we do…). I’m not sure, It gets hot and humid and sticky and stinky. So try the clinical. It is pricey, but if it works, and you no longer smell like a construction worker after a long day at work covered with past due fish, then it’s worth it.
