Aquaphor GIVEAWAY Cut Through the Chafe

Aquaphor GIVEAWAY

Disclaimer: I was provided these products from Aquaphor US to review and to provide a giveaway to my readers.  I was not compensated for this post and all opinions are my own.

Just last weekend Triathletes toed the line at the start of the Aquaphor New York City Triathlon to test their training and determination. The last thing any triathlete or runner would want to happen on race day would be to deal with painful chafing that often goes along with strong athletic effort.

As a distance runner one of the things I dread the most is getting chafing in some of the unmentionable not so desirable areas during a long run.  Summer can be the worst timesfor chafing to happen especially in this crazy humid heat wave that we have been experiencing in New Hampshire this summer. When I workout I tend to sweat profusely. It is definitely not ladylike at all. I often end up looking as though my face is a salt lick left out for the next deer who passes by. Sorry for the honest graphic description but I am guessing many of you who pound out the miles on the pavement and on trails know exactly what I am talking about but I digress . . . When I run in this heat the combination of sweat and the friction caused by my running clothes rubbing against my skin are the perfect recipe for chafing. For me the worst areas are under my arms especially the left side (do I appear crooked when I am running? HA!) as well as chafing under my the band in my sports bra (OUCH! OK . . . not sure what the guys know what I am talking about on this one.)  There is nothing worse than going for the perfect long run, then hopping int he shower to get clean and refreshed only to discover painful areas of chafing when the water hits you skin (AHHH!).

I have found Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment to be a great defense against chafing on my long runs.  One of the reasons I actually like Aquaphor so much is that this is a product that I used on my kids as babies to help with diaper rash and still use it on their sweet little kid hands and lips in the winter when chapped hands and lips make for sad faces. I have sensitive skin just like my kids and I like to go with products that are all natural and/or organic when I can so Aquaphor is a great choice for me and my kids.

Aquaphor:

  • has no preservatives
  • is fragrance free
  • is pediatrician and dermatologist recommended
  • is a skin protectant formula with chamomile essence and provitamin B5
I use Aquaphor when I run to help “cut through the chafe” in my troublesome chafing spots as a preventative measure to try to avoid chafing hot spots. When I do get chafing during long training runs or in a marathon I use Aquaphor on my skin to protect it from any further rubbing and to help my skin heal more quickly.

 How do you cut through the chafe during your long training runs? Do you use Aquaphor to help your skin stay free of irritation during your running adventures?

 Aquaphor was  very generous  and provided me with several full-size samples of their Aquaphor products to try, a CamelBak water bottle, and $50 VISA gift card and NOW you could be chosen as the LUCKY winner to receive an identical prize package from Aquaphor!

    1. It’s the worst when you have to put on a sports bra again to go for your next run. Aquaphor definitely helps with this!

    1. I use it on my hands too in the winter. We definitely have to deal with that every year in NH. Aquaphor is the perfect solution.

    1. And this summer has been the worst for humidity especially now that you are living on the East Coast. I hope you are settling in!

      1. My daughter has problems with Eczema, as well. We have never tried it for that. She usually gets something with a prescription. We will have to try it for that.

  1. I love aquaphor and it definitely cuts to the chafe for me. I use it to prevent chafing from my sports bra and I use it as a blister prevention on my feet when I run on the trails!

    1. Blister prevention is definitely a great use for aquaphor! Congrats on your awesome finishes at Cranmore this weekend and for achieving Mountain Goat Status!

  2. I’ve used Aquaphor before for my eczema, especially in the winter and dry skin in the summer as well. Luckily I havent had a chafing problem yet.

  3. We love it for when my son and his eczema inflames and my husband and i use it for the harshness that wearing our military boots bring to our feet on a day to day basis

  4. I apply it between my thighs when running in shorts!
    Entered the rafflecopter as “Wild orchid”
