I bought this at a late September fest trying to save myself some discomfort and it worked. I was very surprised at how well. I unfortunately wish I had found it earlier than the fest, because I spent a bit of money, but honestly would do it again!
I went to my local running store to browse and this product caught my eye. After talking to the sales person about it, I decided to give it a try. I don't have a major problem with chafing when I run, but I do notice some soreness and redness after long runs. Nothing too painful but it can be irritating sometimes. After I applied BodyGlide to some of the problem areas, I noticed that the problem absolutely disappears. Even after I do my "long runs," which are usually around the nine mile mark, there isn't any chafing at all. Now that I'm hooked, I have recommended it to all my runner friends. Not suprisingly, most of them already knew about it and also swear by it. Even though I don't use it all the time because it is such a pain to apply if you're only going to run a few miles, I make sure to have some on hand before my long runs.

Body Glide reallys keeps you from chaffing!
I started running about two and a half years ago. At first, I was only running small distances but as my mileage started to increase, I noticed that I would have some issues with chaffing around my bra. I wouldn't notice until after I was finished with my run and went to take a shower - OUCH! I tried band aides over the problem area and a few other things but nothing seemed to help. I had a scab there that kept getting worse. Finally another runner recommended that I try some Body Glide Anti-chafing skin protectant stick. The stuff worked like a charm and has continued to be my number one choice before any long run or race and when the weather is extra hot and humid. I also discovered that you can use Glide on the bottom of your feet to help protect against blisters. I have done many races in the rain and along with a good pair of non cotton socks and some Glide, my feet have stayed dry and blister free.
SHOCKINGLY GOOD FOR SKIN! BodyGlide to the Rescue
We're all sick to death of HGTV TLC and the Discovery Channel's reality shows' host *and* participants overuse of the word *AMAZING* so I use it with great caution. This STUFF is THAT INCREDIBLE, it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. I kid you not.
I've endured a lifetime of skin woes. Nothing to soothe this dermas but dangerous steroid creams until I decided what the heck..... give this little balm containing not much but E and Aloe a try.
I've used E for decades, no harm but no big success. Aloe, well that to me was just advertising hype. This little balm however surprised me, pleasantly. The sports world has been all a tizzy over various chafe balms for a while now but since I'm not in that specter of society I didn't know it existed.
Rough elbows? Slather it on abundantly. Watch them heal in minutes. Not days, minutes.
Privates out of sorts for all kinds of reasons? PUT IT THERE, it WON'T BURN OR STING.
Underarms sore from strong deodorants, Put it there too and irritations all gone in moments.
Cuticles torn up? Smoosh it all over your hands. They won't be greasy so you'll have no troubling handling the keyboard or keys or paper.
Between Cheeks unhappy? Glob it right on.
Under Breasts worn thin from sweat and underwires, Glide to Happiness, I'm serious people.
Diaper Rash, already in progress or to Prevent one? Go for it, no idiotic Citric Acid to bum your tot's bum.
From your neck to your toes, eczema to psoriasis guttate, yeast infected crevices, PUT IT ON and you won't know why someone didn't tell you last week about this stuff.
GOES ON **CLEAR **not *milk of magnesia* white like Asics chafe products.
The only place you can't use it is in your eyes.
Now there are different versions. One with sunscreen and another which warms you. I wouldn't use those on raw skin. Nope nope nope. There is a version for HER. Pink lid and I see red dye on the label, everything seems the same but reviews from others say its tacky and whacky so I'm sticking with this Original version. The warming versions may contain menthol like Assos and DZnuts I have no clue why someone wants Ben Gay down there! New Balance, the sneaker company, is also getting in on the act. They've added their logo on some packages for no reason whatsoever other than their greed. Costs more. Same stuff.
A Tip on applying it... I don't take it and just rub it from the stick all over. I like keeping applicators pristine. Tear up a soft ancient cotton sheet into washcloth sized pieces. Shove them into a baggie. Pop into your bathroom (a few in the handbag or briefcase if you'd like touch ups during the day) and put the balm on THEM first. Generously apply to your body *A-part at a time*, then TOSS that CLOTH. Do up another rag, apply and so on. The stick never touches the body and you don't drag whatever might be ailing your toes for instance to your groin or under breast area or vice versa. No sheet? Use sheets of toilet paper instead. The non crumbly brands, *that is.*
The stick itself is about the consistently of most underarm deodorants or say a Chap Stick. Given that consistency it can crumble. I don't care. I take the crumbles and put them right on. Some part of me, with my super duper dry skin, scalp and hair, is always always always in need of glazing and lubrication!
I have no idea why, must be the C16 ingredient or the hard to pronounce TRIBEHENIN in it, but it even **knocks down odor. My Tribe is Loving this product.**
**Free of: ** Parabens and sulfates and No Petroelum
**ENJOY! HECK YES I RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.**
