Worth the marginal extra price relative to bandaids

By Jason

Comments about NipGuards Skin Care:

Glorified bandaids but they are definitely better. They don't stick to your chest hair so they don't come off as easy as some bandaids and no pain removing afterward.

I sweat a lot when running and they don't stay on for longer than 45 minutes . I would not recommend this product if you are a heavy sweater.

Solves the Chafe Problem

By DOUG

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about NipGuards Skin Care:

I live in the south where the humidity during the summer is normally over 70% making it impossible to keep dry and not chafe. I use Body Glide during the fall and winter, but in the summer, it is impossible to keep dry and not chafe. If you have ever experienced chafed nipples on a long run, then you need these. It completely eliminates the problem! By the way, I am a male runner....

    Comments about RunGuards NipGuards Skin Care:

    Highly recommend for any male runners that have sensitive skin or easily gets a skin chapped during long distance runs. I have used the nipguard during marathon training to 10k. This is better than body glide because body glide wears off by mile 6 for me.

      Have issues with chaffing, Nip Guards work great and are much better than band aids. To be most effective you must put them on before you begin to sweat...........

        Comments about RunGuards NipGuards Skin Care:

        My nipples chafed really bad during a Spartan race last year, so this year I knew I had to protect my nips.

        I bought this product knowing I would get wet and muddy, and expected them to come off after a few miles or obstacles. I figured even saving my nipples for a mile or two would help the chaffing. To my surprise, they stayed on the entire time! Even while swimming, dunking myself in mud, crawling under barbed wire, and sweating like a beast.

        The only thing I didn't like was how visible it was under my shirt. I definitely looked like I had really large protruding nipples, but it was worth it. No chaffing, no pain, my nipples stayed happy and smooth with NipGaurds.

              Great product that eliminates any nipple chafing that could ruin a run. I've used them from sweating heavily on the treadmill to 100 mile ultras. Never failed. They stay on.

                            These work great...if they stay on long enough. They seem to be hit or miss, even after I follow the directions on the package. Which, were covered up by the price tag so I didn't see it the first time I used them. I used them one time and they ended up at the bottom of my shirt.

                                  Tremendous product!! I was worried they'd fall off during my recent half-marathon, but they stayed right in place! Once I put them on at the beginning, I completely forgot about them until I needed to take them off after the race. I had chaffed nipples one time before and never want to put up with that again!

                                        These are the best things I have found to help with nipple chaffing. They look a little funny through your shirt but that is nothing compared to a bloody trail down it! If it is really humid and I sweat a lot they do fall off but that usually isn't until about mile 15-18 so they hang on for most of a marathon.

                                                An absolute lifesaver. Perfect for long runs. Put them on when you're dry as they won't stick when you're sweaty. No stains on the shirts and no bloody chafed nipples.

                                                    Irritated and bleeding nipples are no fun.
                                                    Those wonderful body changes brought on by aging!
                                                    Now about any shirt causes problems when I get over a few miles.
                                                    Tried lubricants. They finally stopped working and ruin your shirts in the process.
                                                    These things stay in place, even with heavy sweating; remove easily (even with hair); and stop chafing dead.
                                                    Only downside is that it's sometimes a project getting them off the backing.

                                                        These work as advertised. Don't really notice you are wearing them once one. Take a few minutes to put on and then they just work. A little pricey for a pack of 10 but hard to put a price on pain avoidance.

                                                          If you are looking here, then you have either found out first hand why you need these, or are lucky enough to have someone point you in this direction before you did. What people say about these is true. You may get a funny look from people who don't know why you are wearing these, but they can save you from a LOT of pain. I wear them any time I am running more than 6 miles, but I am sure that everyone will need to assess this for themselves. These stay put while you are running, but come off fairly easily. I have considered trying circular bandaids as a less expensive alternative, but I am just not willing to risk it.

                                                          I like the guards for long runs, but they can look a little awkward if you are not wearing a loose shirt. Even still, they provide great protection.
