A while back I was sent a sample tube of Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream. It’s another entry into the marketplace of blister and chafe prevention products – needed by many athletes.
Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream is a white non-sticky and non-greasy cream that spreads evenly and leaves a protective smooth, almost silky feel to the skin. Unlike some creams or lubricants, I did not have to wash my fingers after applying it to my skin. It’s not oily. It will wash off with soap and water and will not stain your clothes.
This cream can be used by athletes, whatever their sport. It has a great following by cyclists, but is perfect for runners, walkers and hikers. Use it on your feet – between your toes and on your heels, anywhere you typically develop hot spots or blisters. If you are doing a long race or event, you might want to pack a small amount in a Ziploc bag for a second application if you feel it necessary. While it will not sweat off, if you are ding a day long race, a second application could be helpful. It can be used on underarms, inner thighs, and anywhere in your groin or backside areas. It works well on sensitive skin areas and will not burn or sting. Cyclists can also apply it directly to the chamois in their bike shorts.
Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream is available in a 3.3 oz tube and smaller single use packs. A little bit of the cream goes a long ways.
The cream contains Tree Tea Oil, which has nice healing properties. It also contain silicone, which helps with moisture and perspiration control, an important part of foot care for many athletes.
Here’s a report from a friend I asked to try the cream. “I got a chance to use Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream cycling 46 miles on Friday. Cycling was the first sport on it’s list of uses, and it says ‘Apply directly to skin on ANY areas prone to chafing’, and on cyclists that would be the whole crotch zone, which is embarrassingly where I have a problem on long rides with lots of hills. You can also apply it after an activity to calm irritated skin, so I assumed it must be for sensitive areas. It was not uncomfortable to apply, and has a pleasant herbal scent, and was effective at eliminating crotch chafe for me, even though I rode 46 miles. I had no need to apply it afterwards and it did not stain my clothing. I used it only once, but I give it a ‘Thumbs up’!”
Check out some of the testimonials on their website and you’ll find someone who is doing your sport and has had success with the cream.
I recommend trying Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream for your activity. I am a strong believer in trying products to find the best for your feet (and in this case, other body parts). I think Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream is a winner.
I have no financial interest in Blue Steel products.
