Secret Clinical Strength deodorant Dry Ideas

FITNESS staffers put new antiperspirants to the sweat test: a 10-mile run, two hours of kickboxing, and a cross-training session. Here's how they fared.

The Stick: Secret Clinical Strength ($7.99, drugstores)
The Claim: It stops sweat with a near-prescription-strength active ingredient and soothes skin with hydrating petrolatum.
The Results: "This is the first time I've gone through an entire workout with no underarm marks."
-- Julia Savacool, articles director

The Stick: Degree Women Clinical Protection ($10.99, drugstores)
The Claim: Applied before bed, it blocks sweat throughout the following day and calms sensitivity with skin-softening dimethicone.
The Results: "I loved that I didn't have to reapply it after my workout. This kept me dry from morning to night."
-- Elaine Roake, photo director

The Stick: Lady Speed Stick Stainguard ($3.49, drugstores)
The Claim: It contains moisturizing soybean oil and is formulated to prevent yellow marks and smudges on clothes.
The Results: "I stayed odor-free, and it kept icky flakes from showing up on my favorite black workout tee."
-- Chee Gates, features writer
