BibRave Product Review: Body Glide(R)

Disclaimer: I received Body Glide® to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

Training for my first Ironman during the heat and humidity of a Georgia summer definitely requires patience and a few good training tools. One of the key training tools required all year, but DEFINITELY during the most humid months, is a good quality anti-chafe solution. I’ve tried various products with differing results, but none as simple, effective, and readily available as Body Glide ®.

I was already using Body Glide when I received my test product but the additional stick was greatly needed. At this point I have one in each gym bag, and an extra in my bathroom. The one in my bathroom I use for application before early morning workouts, and bike rides on my trainer at home. The extras in each gym bag are always at hand for re-application or after work training. If you must know, I apply the stuff everywhere: under the arms (chicken wings anyone?), thighs, butt, neck and shoulder (especially if I’ll be wearing a pack), and under my sports bra straps. I know guys who use it to prevent nipple bleeding. The struggle is real people! See how the Body Glide® ambassadors use the product


Look! I’m still smiling after a 100 mile ride thanks to some well-placed Body Glide(R)


According to the Body Glide® website:

  • Not oily, never wet à agreed!
  • No petroleum, no parabens
  • Made with allergen free and plant-derived ingredients
  • Vegan approved
  • Never tested animals
  • Child safe
  • Water resistant à I applied before the Chattanooga 70.3 and it lasted all day, even after the swim and sweating
  • Wetsuit, clothing, and footwear safe à use it on your hands and feet to make putting on wetsuit MUCH easier

Final Verdict: Body Glide® is readily available at most sports stores and running specialty stores making it really easy to re-supply in a pinch. It’s easy to apply, long-lasting, and doesn’t melt sitting in your gym bag in a hot car. Final checkmark? It doesn’t leave your hands feeling gross after application. Give it a shot and those painful after-workout showers may be a thing of the past.
