Beauty Product Review: Degree MotionSense Antiperspirant Deodorant
By PJ Gach on July 15, 2014
Will Degree’s MotionSense really keep you dry on a hot day?
Every deodorant states that they’ll keep you dry and fresh even on the hottest day. When I got the Degree MotionSense Antiperspirant Deodorant* ($4.99, drugstore.com), I put it to the test. I had been invited to an event—the event space didn’t have adequate air conditioning and the temps hovered near the 90s, and it was humid and sticky! Perfect weather to take Degree MotionSense Antiperspirant Deodorant for a spin.

It was so hot that my nose felt sweaty. About 20 editors were packed into a room. It was so hot that people ignored cocktails in favor of water. Iced. Cold. Water.
I wobbled out of the event fantasizing about a shower. My elbows were sweating, my knees were sweating, and even my sweat was sweating. I’ve had antiperspirant deodorants run away under those conditions. You’ve had that happen to you: either you become wetter than a rainstorm, or you start to smell like a gym, or both. Other than the minutest sense of wetness, the deodorant held up. I wasn’t stinky, my clothes looked dry, my underarms felt 90% dry. It worked.
Would I use it again? Yes. It’s gentle on your skin. Doesn’t leave marks on your clothes. When it’s horrifically hot out, you need all the help you can get to stay cool. The Degree MotionSense Antiperspirant Deodorant does its job.
