Summer is getting closer by the day and here in Birmingham we have been getting some lovely sunny days. I love sunny mornings and light evenings but heat also means wearing less. If your thighs touch then you may be well aware of the friction that can build up especially in the summer which has affectionately been dubbed chub rub.
This can be uncomfortable and sore and even prevents ladies with larger thighs wearing dresses without some kind of leggings or shorts. There are a few other ways to avoid this little problem. Vevina contacted me and asked me to try out their 'Friction Protection Cream'*. I have never used one of these creams before and have always been a bit cautious about them but thought I would give it a try. They kindly have offered to give 5 of you lovely readers some to try out too!
The way the cream works is to act as a barrier between skin on skin or clothes on skin which helps reduce friction. The bottle is a handy handbag size so can be kept in your bag for an emergency which is what I did. The cream itself is a white, unscented cream with the same consistency as a normal moisturiser. I applied the cream to my inner thighs and used about a pea size amount, Making sure it is all rubbed in and off I went walking all day.
I actually feel like it did make a difference. I walked around without leggings all day in the lovely sun and it felt amazing to bare my milk bottle legs to the world. For me however I feel like halfway through the day I had to reapply but that was after a good 6 hours. So that really isn't bad at all 6 hours of protection is worth reapplying. Just think of those floaty maxi dresses without leggings or that summer dress!
Fancy trying some? I have 5 brand new tubes to give away all you need to do is comment below and let me know you want to try some.
