Blue Steel Sports Anti-Chafe Cream Product Review & Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to try out Anti-Chafe Cream from Blue Steel Sports recently. I had only tried Body Glide before for my long runs and did not have experience with other anti-chafing products. I was very excited to try this out.

Visit the Blue Steel Sports website (HERE) and start shopping!

The Anti-Chafe cream protects you against blisters, skin rashes and saddle-sores.

What Blue Steel Sports says on their website:

Any endurance activity is likely to cause painful skin irritation through friction caused by skin rubbing against skin, and clothing rubbing against your skin. Moisture, in the form of perspiration or water, further aggravates the inflamed skin.

BLUE STEEL SPORTS Anti-Chafe cream protects your skin in two ways:

It forms a silky layer on your skin that reduces friction
It creates an effective barrier against moisture
It is long lasting and absolutely not sticky or greasy and won’t burn sensitive skin. It won’t stain your clothing and washes out with soap.

Where do YOU chafe?

Feet - protects against blisters and cracked heels
Inner thigh, groin and buttocks - apply directly to skin to prevent saddle sores
Upper body - under arms, under sports bras, nipples
Face and hands – protects exposed skin against windburn.
Apply to any external areas of your body that are prone to chafing prior to activity. May also be used after activity to assist in recovery of irritated skin.




I have now tried the anti-chafing cream out on two short runs and three long runs. I really, really like that this product isn't sticky. Since it WASN'T STICKY, I wasn't sure how it would protect my thighs from rubbing together. But, it did. I was really pleasantly surprised.

I applied this on my thighs, knees and my underarms. I had absolutely no rubbing and no bleeding during my long runs -- wow!!

I wasn't sure if I'd like the scent of thre tree extract, but it was fine. It was a little "medicinal" at first, but didn't bother me.

There was no residue on my clothes from the cream. It disappeared on my skin, as I rubbed it in and didn't show up on my dark running clothing.

The only thing that I may have (slightly) disliked is that you need to apply it with your hands. Unlike other products, where you apply it directly from the tube/container. I also used a handheld water bottle on a hot ten miler and the mixture of the condensation, sweat and anti-chafing cream on my hands was causing the bottle to be a bit slipper in my hand. That can easily be solved by me washing my hands next time, before heading out the door. No biggie.

  16. Interesting...I love my BodyGlide, but I don't like the residue feeling of it. I do like that I don't have to put it on my hands as I'm not good with lotions or anything on my hands - especially when I run :)!
