I know, I’ve never reviewed an antiperspirant on my blog and don’t plan to make it a regular thing. But I was sent the Degree MotionSense Dry Spray from Influenster for review purposes. In order to complete my tasks I’m required to write a blog post. Honestly, I don’t even want to write a review because I dislike this product. I try to stay away from doing an entire negative blog post, but here we go.
I’ve been using the same deodorant for years, anytime I try something new I go back to my trusted; Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant Deodorant.
I’ve never actually used a spray type deodorant so was kind of excited to try one.
Degree MotionSense Dry Spray claims to…
- Go on instantly dry for cleaner feel with no visible residue
- Provide 48-hour odor and wetness protection
- Includes MotionSense technology designed to respond directly to your body movement, the more you move the more it protects.
My thoughts on their claims…
Goes on dry for a cleaner feel with no visible residue.
This product holds true to this claim. It doesn’t really feel like I’m wearing anything under my arms after I apply it.
Provide 48-hour odor and wetness protection.
Not true. At least for me. It didn’t even last 12 hours on me. Horrible protection for me. Almost like I’m not wearing any protection at all… Which means the next claim did not live up as well.
Anytime I would apply the Degree MotionSense Dry Spray it was like I inhaled it all. Maybe if you applied it while standing in your back yard you’d be fine. It was awful, I felt like I was inhaling a shitload of chemicals and killing myself. I didn’t want to use it again just because of this. It felt like it was stuck in my throat too. Even if I went to another room, held my breath, sprayed it and then left it would still somehow find it’s way back to me. The spray is very fine, so maybe that has something to do with it.
I will not finish using this antiperspirant and will probably just throw it out, I don’t know if I can donate something used even though it’s in a spray can. I don’t have much more to say about this product as I HATE it. I just did not work for me at all. I’ll stick with my Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant Deodorant.
What antiperspirant / deodorant do you use?
In the UK, the Degree brand is called SURE, and I used to use Sure for men antiperspirant deodorant (yes I’m a guy) for many many years, until they decided to change the product incorporating this ‘MotionSense’ technology. I too had the same experience that you had. After spraying I felt as though I had swallowed half a can of chemicals. Even after having a glass of water I could still taste the chemicals in my mouth – clearly there is something in these cans which is not good for you if you inhale. The result of this experience is that they lost a long standing customer.
I’m glad someone else had the same experience as me. I tried looking into it when I wrote this post and no one else complained about it which surprised me. It was awful, I can still imagine the feeling I had anytime I attempted to use it. I threw both can outs. That sucks that they changed the formula/product on you, I hope you found something good to replace it.
