17. Or a stick of Gold Bond Friction Defense that stops chafing caused by sweat in its tracks. Now you can finally wear shorts or dresses during long vacation days without worrying about the inevitable inner thigh chafing (and the pain that accompanies it).
Heads up: they recently changed the packaging of this product, but it’s still the same great formula!
I’ve used it for about 12 years now and it’s the only thing that I can trust to prevent that dreaded chafing after a sweaty day of walking around. It glides on perfectly, it’s unscented, and it doesn’t melt away when you start to sweat. If it’s a particularly hot day out, it can start to fade after a few hours, so just make sure to bring it with you to reapply. In addition to preventing chafing between my thighs, I’ve also applied it on my arms where my sports bra rubs against them when I run and it works like a charm!
Promising review: “I just used it for five days in 90 degree plus weather at Bonnaroo music festival in the middle of Tennessee on a farm in June with 100,000 people walking several miles, dancing, and sweating every day. I am happy to report that this product is a lifesaver. My thighs didn’t chafe once, and I have big ones! I had to reapply once during the day. I strongly recommend buying this if you have large thighs and need relief from chafing. I couldn’t wear dresses or skirts in the heat if I was walking anywhere, and now I live in them because of this stuff! Buy it! It works!” —Carwizzle
