LIFESTYLE: Preparing for Stressful Moments!

I did something really silly… a couple of months ago I ‘accidentally’ signed up to compete in a 5k run with my workmates.  This was on a wet, soggy January day at the beginning of the year and for some reason I thought it’d be a brilliant idea and that I’d be magically fit and active by the time it came round in June.

Fast forward 6 months, the date is fast approaching and I have not worked out ONCE.  Actually, that's a lie, in fact I did go for a jog a couple of weekends ago and made it 3 minutes down the road before giving in completely. 

On the day (morning of 28th July if any one wants to come and cheer me on in Bushy Park) I know that I’ll be stressed enough about the act taking part and one thing I do not need is more stress about the fact it’ll be hot and working up a sweat.  Thankfully though, I have that part sorted thanks to my all time fav deodorant – Sure Maximum Protection. 

Luckily for me they’ve just launched their new ‘Stress Control’ anti-perspirant that helps to provide their most advanced, long lasting protection with stress activated ingredients for that extra piece of mind!  It also doesn’t help that all of my workmates are really fit and active – most of them take weekly dance/gym classes, a couple of them have competed in the London marathon and here I am, Katie Snooks, who’d rather be sitting in bed playing with makeup rather than out jogging!  But at least I have the secret to no sweat patches and won’t be held back by the extra worry of stress on top ;)

I know 5k isn’t the longest race, but for me it’s a really big deal.  I’m determined to finish it with a smile, no matter how rough I feel inside (luckily I won’t look it on the outside). 

Sure Maximum Protection is 2 times stronger than the leading antiperspirant and it’s two new variants are Stress Control and Sport Strength so it has you covered for any big occasion whether it be a wedding, race, exam, workouts etc!  Be sure to have it on hand to help you prepare for the moments that matter.  

I'll be wearing the Sport Strength anti-perspirant on the day of my run - it has a lovely citrusy fragrance and really helps to not only help stop me sweating but also helps protect against odour during exercise - perfect!

Have you ever tried this deodorant?  Any tips on finishing the race?


Please note this is a sponsored post but all thoughts are my own!


  1. I like the idea of a stress control deodorant and the fact that it is stronger than normal is great for summer! x

  2. I bought this stuff a few times. One scent is like a concentrated stick of sweat and stinkkkssss worse than a teenage boys jockstrap. but the green one keeps me pitts well dry. And it was recommended to me by some bird who used to be in Hollyoaks, so it must be good - right?

  3. Really like this deodorant, I hate sprays and roll ons you have to wait for ages to dry! You can't put this on at night too and it's meant to work overnight to help keep you dry the next day too :)

  5. I use the original version of this deodorant and love it, so I think I'm going to have to give this one ago next time I run out!
    Good luck in your 5K run! :)
