Gold Bond Friction Defense Giveaway


I was contacted by the awesome people at Gold Bond and was told about a new friction defense/anti chafe product. I have terrible chafing problems, so I decided to try it out and see if it would help. I was sent the product as well as some socks (which are super comfy!)

I decided to first try it out on a ten mile long run, as I figured that would be the ultimate test. I put it on the areas I usually chafe (in between my legs, on my sports bra line, and under my arms where they rub my tank tops) and Bobby used it as well.

I am happy to report, along with Bobby, that there was zero rubbing or chafing, and no notice that I was even using it on my body, and no scent (some brands can be sticky, greasy, you can “feel” the product, are scented, etc.) Also, it can be used daily, and acts as a moisturizer for your skin. it is also a great skin soother unlike many other anti chafe products on the market. I have had problems with other products wearing off after a few miles and needing reapplication, but not with this. I have so far used it on runs between three and twelve miles with no need for reapplying.

You know when you didn’t even realize you had chafed, and there is that terrible moment in the shower where the water hits you and you are on fire and realize you DID indeed chafe? (Oh I KNOW you know what I am talking about!) I am glad to say I have not had to deal with that at all since using Gold Bond Friction Defense! Whew!

gross and sweaty, but not chafing!

Another great thing about this product is the price point. It is less expensive than many of the same types of products on the market. You can find Gold Bond friction defense in the first aid aisle of major retailers such as Target, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and CVS.

  20. This looks like it would be an awesome product for running! You know you have determination when after running 2 miles you can feel the chafe coming on and instead of turning around and calling it quits you push through to get to your goal! This unfortunately just happened to me…even though it was painful I felt great after my 10 miles 🙂
