Can FootGlide Handle Yoga, Jogging and Daily Wear?

Being healthy goes beyond the foods you eat.

It's also about how you care for your hair, nails and skin. During the winter I dread having dry, cracked heals. They're painful, unsightly and a great way to let bacteria get into your body. Yuck!

So, when I was approached by Bodyglide to give its new anti-chafe foot balm FootGlide a try, I was glad to accept. After all, I like healthy, happy feet. Don't you?

So, What is It?
First of all, FootGlide is not tested on animals and is made from plant-derived waxes instead of petroleum, lanolin or oils. Second, it's main purpose is to reduce friction that could cause blisters, chafing, dryness and skin irritation.

As I was reading through the paperwork sent with the trail size sample, I noticed you can use the product on other areas of your body to:
  • reduce rubbing from sports bras or wet suits
  • reduce chafing from thigh rubbing when wearing running shorts
  • reduce raw skin or hot spots from breaking in new shoes
So, to give FootGlide a good try, I subjected it to yoga, jogging and everyday walking. The product is housed in a deodorant-style case with an easy-twist dial to slowly raise the balm. The texture is soft and creamy but not greasy. I particularly like the light baby powder-like fragrance.

Let's Give it a Go!
I smoothed the balm of the bottoms of each foot, paying close attention to the area around the backs of my heels, where I usually have trouble with blisters. Then I slipped into a pair of new sneakers.

It was nice that my feet didn't feel overly moist, like after applying lotion or petroleum jelly. The balm absorbs quickly and you don't even realize it's there. I was a little worried it might be sticky or oily.

While doing yoga and jogging, I didn't even notice there was anything different on my feet. I thought maybe my socks would stick or possibly bunch up due to the additional moisture. Thankfully, my socks stayed in place. When I took a quick check of my feet, they were smooth and irritation-free. That's a bonus when breaking in new sneakers!

At the end of the day, after walking in the sneakers, my feet were still comfortable. I was also glad my feet were sweaty. I'm not fond of products that clog my pores and make it difficult for skin to breathe.

Overall, FootGlide worked well during my test and gets a thumbs up! Have you ever used an anti-chafing balm? What did you like or dislike about it? Tell me in the comments below.

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!
