    • Intense Physical Activity

    Comments about Body Glide Anti-Friction 2.5 oz Skin Care:

    I have tried a number of products to try to mitigate blisters and chafing, however they all seems to lose there effectiveness after mile 15. Glide lasts through the entire 25+ miles and has not had any adverse effects for me. I highly recommend putting it on before you strap up!

    Comments about Body Glide Anti-Friction 2.5 oz Skin Care:

    Have used this product for a while, including this past weekend in my 2nd 100-miler. Got a chuckle because the product protected me from virtually any chafing - for 96.5 miles. Had to get a quick vaseline fix to make it the last 3.5 miles to the finish line. But the fact that it last 24 hours in just brutal conditions was a testament to the products effectiveness, I highly recommend it.

    Comments about Body Glide Anti-Friction 2.5 oz Skin Care:

    I agree with the other two reviewers--this stuff is the BEST. A must-have for long runs and those prone to chafing (common among long-distance runners, as we know!)... Vaseline can't compare with Body Glide, and I rely on the latter for all of my longer runs.

    Works well. 4 stars because of the steep price and the fact that the edges start out sharp before melting to a more comfortable shape.

    Comments about Body Glide Anti-Friction 2.5 oz Skin Care:

    This stuff is great. Stays on and keeps me from chafing. I use it on the bottoms of my feet because they tend to slide a bit in my shoes when the terrain is uneven. My husband who's a mailman uses it on his chest in the summer time when he chafes from the heat. RRS always has it at a comparable price and ships it lightening fast.

    Comments about Body Glide Anti-Friction 2.5 oz Skin Care:

    My husband has used Body Glide for several years. He tried other gels and creams, but found this one to be the easiest to apply and the least messy to wear. The only "negative" is that it works so good it's hard to remove!! But, I guess that's an ok problem to have.

    We use Body Glide liberally in our household for running and cycling, on everything from under bras to points of contact with bike saddles to feet and even between toes. Body Glide allows us to run and ride without the constant worry of chafing and blisters.

    USED FOR SURFERS!! I have problems of rashes when the water warms up in San Diego and I switch from wetsuits to boardshorts and the rails of the board chafe up my inner thighs. A friend of mine that uses Body Glide for Marathons told me about this product and I have been happily using it every summer surfing to help protect my legs!! In addition, during winter time, I apply Body Glide on my wrists and ankles/feet to help take off a full wetsuit after surfing!! I will be a life long user! Thanks!

    Glide has eliminated by severe problem of blistered feet. I tried a lot of different shoes and socks but suffered after every long run. These were not little blisters on a toe. These were large, across the entire arch blisters. This product has allowed me to keep running!

    Fri, March 07,2003:
    I have been using Body Glide for a couple of years. I find it particularly effective in protecting nipples, which, as any male long-distance runner knows, can end up bleeding due to the friction caused by sweaty T-shirts. It also does a wonderful job of reducing chafing between the thighs, where sweaty sweatpants can sometimes bunch up and cause a lot of friction. I've even used it successfully on the soles of my feet to resist blisters during 20Ks and half-marathons. I wish Body Glide were a little less expensive; but it works, and its spares me some of the potential physical discomforts associated with running in all kinds of weather.
