Tricky Tricksters
Monday, January 19, 2009

I have been bested by a generic deodorant company.

I am a faithful purchaser of Secret Deodorant. My grandma uses it. My mom uses it. Except for a few wayward years of wearing Teen Spirit in Jr. High, I have always used it. I come from a long line of Secret-wearing women.

This week, Jonathan saw my deodorant sitting on the bathroom counter and asked "Why did you buy the cheap stuff?"

HUH?? Secret is the good stuff! Whatever could he mean, "cheap stuff"?

Well...upon closer seems that the marketing geniuses who work for Suave pulled one over on me with their crafty packaging.

I am now that consumer that did not look carefully enough (shopping with three kids will do that), and the trademark baby blue color had me quickly throwing the stick in my basket without careful inspection. Tricky tricksters those Suave people.

I have the excuse of three kids distracting me in the store.

I'm still working on why I never noticed it was Suave and not Secret when I got it home and used it for a couple weeks.

I would have done the same thing and I've got no children distracting me!
So was the Suave as good as the Secret? Bet it was cheaper!!!
Have a great Tuesday!

I'm also curious to know if the Suave was as good as the Secret. If you didn't notice, it must have been!

Suave is the only deoderant I can wear. I can't use Secret. I am allergic to glycerin. Secret has it, Suave does not. It works great for me.

I have the same curiosity as Granny: Do you notice a difference?

So funny. I did this just the other day! I usually buy Degree, but then came home with Dove. Hmm? When did Dove start making deodorant?
