Product Hype: Body Glide’s Foot Glide

Blisters and summertime seem to go hand in hand. Whether you’re wearing running shoes or sandals, there’s something about the heat combined with sweating and, sometimes, the absence of socks that can, well, often leave you limping at the end of the day. And let’s be honest, those unwanted blisters hurt more than you’d like to admit.

So if you could reduce their occurrence with a foot-specific product like lotions, talcs and balms, like Body Glide’s Foot Glide anti-blister balm would you do it? Chances are you would.

Petroleum, lanolin and mineral oil-free, the balm’s vegan-approved formula is fuelled with apricot kernel oil, comfrey leaf extract and vitamins A and C to soften skin, minimize inflammation and restore dry, chapped, and chafed feet. Packaged in a deodorant-like cylinder, the stick swipes on easily and with a dry texture, so won’t leave a greasy residue. Plus, it’s water and sweat resistant, enabling your body’s sweat to escape while letting your skin breathe.

All you have to do is apply it directly onto your skin before you put on your socks and/or shoes. Just make sure to rub it across intact skin and to avoid any existing blisters.
