Chub rub no more!
I bought this in April & now in June, I've come home from a fast-paced 15-minute walk in 84-degree heat & 50% humidity & NOW I can finally write this review. This stuff is amazing.

Bonus that it's cheaper! It's also sold in certain big box stores, so you're not forced to wait for Prime or go to some sp...

Good alternative to the Johnson & Johnson's Band Aid friction product
This product doesn't seem all that different from the J&J version of friction Band Aid. After reading all the reviews of the different alternatives, I just picked the Gold Bond. I use it for when I'm breaking in new shoes--primarily in trouble areas at my back heel and the areas around the top of my...
