When the anti chafe gel I had been using for years disappeared from Amazon, I was very sad. It had served me well. Now what?
I had long heard about Squirrel’s Nut Butter (buy it at my Amazon Affiliate link here). It was time to give it a try! If you’re a male cyclist, you’ve probably heard about this one.
You can’t get much cleaner ingredients than this:
- Coconut oil
- Cocoa butter
- Vitamin E oil
Will it stain my clothes?
SNB goes on clear.
Is it sticky?
A little when it first goes on, but after that you really won’t know you’ve applied it. In a good way.
But does it work?
So far, so good. I did have one long run not too long ago where there was a little chafing in an unmentionable place, but I hadn’t applied anything there — because I don’t usually chafe there. You can bet I applied some the next time I ran long! No chafing the next time.
I liked that the previous anti chafe gel was a clear gel and went on very easily. SNB goes on clear, but it’s a roll on, so it’s a bit difficult to apply in those unmentionable places. In those cases, I usually just roll some on my palm to apply.
So far it seems to be doing its job, and truly, I love the ingredients.
Is chafing a problem for you? Not usually for me, which is sometimes the problem because it’s random!
If yes, what do you use for it?
This week I am also joining up with the new Runners’ Roundup linkup.
