For as long as I can remember, my thighs have touched each other. It never bothered me much in the winter (long pants and tights eliminated that uncomfortable sticky feeling), but in the summertime, it was a pain! Anyone with thick thighs will sympathize; there is nothing worse than the feeling of your sticky, sweaty thighs rubbing against each other, leaving you with red, rashy bumps. This affliction is affectionately known as chub rub.
For years I avoided shorts, and skirts in the summer, preferring to stick to capris or maxi dresses that I could wear shorts underneath. But with the sweating hot summers we’ve been having in recent years, I’ve said SCREW THAT! I’m all about short shorts & sun dresses. Now, this creates a dilemma – what about my sticky thighs? I’ve tried everything from deodorant, chamois cream (what bikers use on their bums to eliminate chafe), baby powder, coconut oil…none of them work!
Here are the pros of this product:
- Glides on invisibly and smoothly.
- Smells amazing! The ingredients include aloe, pomegranate & grape seed oil.
- Soothes skin with cooling and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Left me chafe-free on the sweatiest of days (It was 46C with humidity).
The only con is that I had to re-apply a few times throughout the day because of the amount of sweat I was producing. But, I did use it on a milder day and found that I only had to reapply once. So, keep it in your purse and you’ll be fine!
Because I had to pay for shipping from the US, I decided to try out the Megababe Bust Dust too. Boob sweat is gross and smelly and sticky, so this fine powder made of bacteria-fighting lavender and soothing camomile is the ticket! I’d totally recommend this to all my big-booby friends.
- Again, smells amazing!
- Prevent rash in the cleavage and underwire.
- I also use it under my post-baby-belly-overhang and it keeps me feeling fresh and dry.
The con here is that it’s somewhat messy to use. I couldn’t figure out how to spray just a little, it would come out as a big blob of powder. But, once I smeared it around, it was fine.
So thanks Megababe, for keeping me chafe-free all summer long! I will be shouting my love for these products from the rooftops!
