Product Review: Body Glide Anti-Chafe Balm

Hot, sticky summertime weather is enough to deal with without having to manage uncomfortable rubbing and chafing between your thighs, under your arms or on your feet. Chafed skin can occur anywhere on the body where skin rubs together. Untreated chafed skin can lead to an infection, which is the last thing that you want.

Your best bet is to avoid chafing at all cost. Body Glide Original Anti-Chafe Balm is a surefire way to do that. This balm forms a dry and invisible barrier that protects the skin wherever rubbing can occur. The formula is made from plant-derived ingredients that are allergen free; it’s also free of petroleum, lanolin and mineral oils, so Body Glide Anti-Chafe Balm is never greasy or wet. It’s also safe for clothing, wetsuits and footwear. Even better, it lasts a long time, won’t clog pores, and easily washes off with soap and water. And it’s safe for children, too.
