I love reviewing new products when they come out. When I fist saw the Secret Freshies, which are the small sphere deodorants sold right now, I was intrigued. The packaging is adorable. Small spheres of product that will fit in the palm of your hand. What is not to love? The fragrances were delightful sounding as well. I chose the Cool Waterlily, in a cute mint ball to bring home with me. It was $4.99 for 0.5 oz.
As soon as I got home, I had to get scissors to free the Secret from the packaging. It is in there really good! It was more expensive than other products, but I was buying into the cuteness factor.
I set it on the counter for the following morning as a part of my get ready for work routine.
The next morning, instead of reaching for my normal product, I reached for the Secret Freshie. I unscrewed the lid and went to apply it, Freshie went flying across the room! The sphere does not have anything to create a grip. Retrieving it from the floor, I looked at it. The amount of product was pretty small. I looked at the bottom and side, there was no place to disperse more product. Literally, what you see is what you get. In the next 2 weeks, I used the Freshie every day. At the end of the 2 weeks, I felt a scratch one morning as I applied the product. I looked down and I had already gotten to the end of the product. The scratch was from the side of the Freshie scraping my underarm. I threw it away and will not be buying another. Not impressed for the price.
