A Must for All Runners

5

I think it's about time the made a convenient stick. I personally don't apply this to the sensitive areas like my nipples because I use bandaids. But for the inner thighs and feet... it does wonders.

Good product. Trustworthy. Don't let it dry out. Great for long runs and chaffeing spots.

Long lasting and effective

5

Years ago, I used the product Runner's Lube, which I've always liked, but this product is equal in performance. I chafe mostly due to the salt that my body produces when I seat, and I only use it for longer runs (8+ miles) on my inner thighs and the inside of my upper arms. But for those who need protection against chafing all the time, it would also be perfect. It goes on clear, lasts throughout my runs and doesn't have any odor to it. It can feel a little sticky when you first put it on, but once you're into the run, it provides only comfort. And, I sweat profusely and it still lasts.

A necessity

5

Body Glide is a staple for any distance runner -- if I'm going out for more than 5 miles, I put on Body Glide with the same level of 'must-wear' as my socks. It prevents blisters and chafing -- I roll it on any place a seam touches my body and any place skin touches skin. I am extraordinarily sensitive and have never had a breakout or any kind of reaction to this product. It's simple and doesn't feel sticky or oily -- just smooth, smooth, smooth.

It's all about the products

Body Glide does a great job eliminating irritation caused by clothing rubbing against your skin or other friction heavy areas of your body while running. It stays on during most activities. Like any topical product, you must reapply occasionally. It's more about the application than the ability of the product to work. As long as you get it in the right spots, you won't have anymore painful burns after a long run.

Great for Endurance Events

I love Body Glide, especially the one that doubles as a sunblock. It is great for avoiding chaffing for longer races (marathons, triathlons, etc...) For guys, it work great to avoid chaffing caused by the rubbing of your shirt on your nipples. I know this sounds funny, but if you have run a marathon, you probably understand. It also works well for getting your wetsuit off more quickly by applying it to wrists and ankles.

Say goodbye to chafed skin!!!

4

I do not go out for a run without first applying some Body Glide. It goes on easy and is long lasting. I tend to sweat profusely when engaging in physical activity and this product helps prevent chafed skin and blisters. The only negative is that this product can leave some greasy stains on light colored technical running clothes.

Don't run without it!

I use Body Glide for every run outside, especially long runs. I use it wherever there could be any sort of friction: under arms, on toes, heels, tops of feet, around neckline, between legs. Anywhere you can imagine your clothes might rub against your skin. Works every time--I can't run without it!!!

Gone are the days of messy vaseline on the thighs! I do not have thunder thighs by any means, but my legs have a natural "crossover" when I run. I am not a fan of compression shorts so Body Glide is my "go to" running companion to avoid chafing. Has lasted through a half marathon without having to reapply! Big Plus is that it does not stain clothing, and can be put directly on clothing to avoid upper arm chafing. Highly recommended.

For those "sensitive" areas

5

I bought this product when I was in high school. That would be the last millenium. I just got back into running and found this product on roadrunnersports.com! Body Glide has been around because it works and it's the best. I use this no matter the distance that I run. Anywhere your body might rub, use this product!

magic

the body glide stick was a magic discovery - i was having some major chafing issues and it was preventing me from adding distance to my runs. Once I discovered this product and tried it, everythign changed. it has helped me build to half marathons but using it in all the chafing spots, INCLUDING my feet. It feels a little sticky when you put it on, but just go with it, you'll be glad you did.

Don't Run Without It

5

I own certain brands/styles of running shorts that have a tendency to chaff my skin, especially after intense physical activity. I have used this Body Glide with a lot of success. It relieves the discomfort that I have experienced. Importantly, it washes off pretty easily after a run.

Can't live without it!

5

This is one product I cannot live without. I use it before every run. It prevents chafing especially during hot & sticky summer days. It doesn't stain or leave a residue like some products can. The only negative about this product is that it can be temperature sensitive. If it gets too warm (if you leave it in your car during the summer) it can melt and get goopy.

Second to none

5

There really is no superior product. I use this when I run to avoid chafe and blisters on my toes and always put it under my wetsuit to avoid chafe under the neck and to assist when removing my wetsuit in transition. I've tried generic products but I think body-glide is the best.

I ordered this product when my running chaffed my leg on one of my long runs. when I recieved it, I immediately began to use. It worked great. I couldn't have asked for a better product. I love that it's a stick, no mess. Just wipe on and go. I even used it during my marathon run and no chaffing.

I went on a business trip and forgot my Body Glide and during my morning run was reminded of that saying that you don't know how much you love something until it's gone...Man o man after six miles my inner thighs were good candidates for skin grafts...Use Body Glide...it works great. [...]

Good for curves

5

As a curvy woman, Body Glide allows me to run long distance without painful chafing along bra lines, pants lines, and other areas. I couldn't do the workouts I do without it. No other products have been as effective for me as Body glide. It is a running essential.

It works.

This form of bodyglide definitely works, but like a cheap deodorant stick, it's destined to break apart near the end. It can even get chaffing itself, as you near the end and try to use every last bit. I prefer the bodyglide squeeze packets or the Asics Chafe Free for this reason. Happy Running!

I love/need me some body glide

Ahhhh body glide. Use it for swim/bike/run. I like it better than chamois lube stuff. Doesn't melt when it sits in my car and tends to be good for a lot of uses. Not for sharing with friends. Unless they're really really good friends or enemies.

Body Glide

5

I personally use body glide for under my arms for chafing and also on the bottoms of my feet for hot spots and blister protection on runs. I ran for 2 hours on Sunday and never had a problem. I think I have about 4-5 sticks at home and never do a workout without it.

Saves you from painful post-run showers!

5

If you'd like to prevent the always hated bloody nipple, then use this product. If you'd like to avoid the post-run shower experience from hell (guys know what this is), use this product. If neither of the above bother you, then no need to use this product :-)

I use this every time I exercise. Florida weather is almost always hot and humid and chaffing happens quickly. But using BodyGlide means I don't have any of those WOW moments later. And I know when I use my wetsuit it won't damage it.

Staple for every runner

Took me so long to find a product to stop chafing. This is the one and only. Never run without it. Only downside is that I forget to use it occasionally because I completely forget what's it's like without it.

Every athlete should use Bodyglide

4

As a triathlete I use bodyglide before every bike and run session. No chaffing, no blisters, no saddle sores. The only complaint is that sometimes a large piece will break off from the stick. At this price, that hurts.

Best protection for chafing on the marke

5

I use the product for my very long training runs and I never have to worry about chaffing problems. It's simply the best product out there where in the past using Petroleum jelly would ruin my running gear due to its high level of oils.

Chub Rub Be Gone!

4

Easy to apply any area that friction may occur. Although I have a slim frame, my top inner thighs rub together (chub rub) on longer runs, causes chaffing, skin shearing, and pain. Another runner suggested Body Glide--and it has done the trick on preventing further rubbing in this area. I also use under arms in arm pit area when wearing a sleeveless top.

Body Glide Anti-Friction is something I will always have on hand. I put it everywhere there might be chafing, and I put it on my feet to prevent hot spots. It gets quite hot where I live, but Body Glide ("chub rub" as a friend calls it) stays on until you wash it off. Great product.

Helps with blisters.

Been training for the May 2 Pittsburgh Marathon and having a terrible time with blisters on my feet, especially toes. I use the Body Glide all over my feet and the blisters have been few and far between. My husband uses the glide for his chafing issues, seems to be working.

Use Body Glide Every Time I Run

I am a big guy and I run about 18 miles per week. I use Body Glide every time I run whether it is summer, spring, fall or winter. I order 3-5 packages every time I order as to not run out.

After chafing one too many times in very painful locations, I bought Glide. Haven't chafed since! Can be a bit messy and annoying to clean off - but that is a small price to pay for not having to walk/move funny for a few days.

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!

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.

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.
