A Shout Out To Clinical Strength!

So, I guess I lost my deodorant. Must have left it in Las Vegas, and you know what...best decision ever!! As you all know, I have a problem. I sweat excessively. I have this theory about it...you know, stuff like...my stank is so appealing to the opposite sex, and I am just dripping with pheromones...you know, the usual delusions. But a while back I saw a commercial. It was something that I truly wanted, and couldn't justify because I had a perfectly good deodorant already. Since I left it in Las Vegas...I had a good excuse. I also had a $2.00 off coupon which turned out to be very handy because it was like $7.00. I digress, basically I love my new deodorant. I am going to recommend it to anyone that has my particular ailment. Memzy, Julie...I am looking at you. (That is what you get for confiding your embarrassing secrets to me!) Dry as a bone! One more thing, I got sheer powder flavor, and I don't think it was the right scent. I suggest shower clean.

And the first photo is my niece, Nora. So cute, right? She came to visit me today. If you don't know who the rest of the people are, you don't know me at all!

Oh there is no shame here. So what is it called "Clinical Strength"? Literally? Where do I get it. I'm off to the store right away.

Katie said...

Yeah, it is called clinical protection actually. They probably should have passed a few more ideas around the table.

I had no idea you and Memz had such a problem. That stinks! Good thing you found something that helps.
And you are too cool for blogging about it.

I too am an excessive sweater. Strictly in the pit area. I have been searching high and low for the right deodorant for years now. I'm totally trying this and if it works we are totally best friends. and if it doesn't we're still best friends cause we both excessively sweat in the pits.

That is a great deodorant! I used it when I had the problem, but now I am cured! Not from the deodorant, though. Just shifting hormones, I guess!

You sweaters are grody. No, not cable knit, perspiration. Clinical Protection sounds like you may need a prescription for that stuff. I'm gonna text Tony & see what he says. Jaykay. He'd think I was creepy that a) I had his number and 2) I was asking him about deoderant.

It could be worse. You could have that face sweat thing like Whitney Houston. I hear it drives people to drugs & abusive husbands.

Memzy said...

It will be dead if winter, goosebumps covering my body, and my pits?---sweaty. WTH?

Yeah I'm not above

Annie said...

Good to know...all the above.

What clinic is this from? Just some mysterious nameless clinic? It could have come from an abortion clinic. And I think I already asked you this, but did your old deodorant have antiperspirant in it? Cuz that may be the problem. And not the "clear" antiperspirant, but the real white chalky stuff. The clear doesn't work.

I am not a hugely sweaty person but I periodically sweat enough so I am going to try this out. If you are right I am going to reveal a special housekeeping tip too.

Thanks for sharing!!

Katie said...

Did Jenny come on here and ask me if I tried deodorant with antiperspirant in it? She didn't, right? Just my imagination.

And the clinic? I don't care if there are ground up babies in there, I just want to be dry...you don't know what it feels like, Jenny. You with your dry pits, being all, "I think I forgot to put deodorant on today, no biggie." You have no idea.

Thank you. This post was an answer to my prayers.
