SportShield Review and Giveaway
A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Kristin, a marketing manager representing 2Toms [HERE]. 2Toms was founded in 2002 by two athletes (can you guess what both their names are?) and offers several successful products, including BlisterShield, SportShield® and ButtShield®. 2Toms’ mission is to provide the best comfort and care to athletes by offering the most technologically advanced products available anywhere. Their products are made in the USA.
Look, maybe you’re lucky enough to not have any chafing issues and that’s cool for you, but I’m not that girl, so I was excited to try out SportShield and add it to my arsenal of raw skin fighters.
Wanting to put it through a tough test, I decided to try out SportShield this past weekend on a 10-mile run. Since we snagged a 65° day in February, I was wearing a running skirt, and despite my best efforts to tone the thighs, they still touch, m’kay? Normally, I use Body Glide because that’s all I’ve known about up until now, but the first thing I noticed about SportShield is that application is super easy because of the roll-on applicator. Love it! It went on really smoothly. The product is silicone-based with aloe vera and promises to:
* Eliminate friction that causes chafing and blisters.
* Last all day – even under the most extreme conditions.
* Be waterproof, non-staining, non-toxic, non-greasy, and contain no animal products.
I liked that it wasn’t sticky. Honestly, because the consistency was so thin, I wasn’t sure how it was going to hold up, but it really performed well and completely protected my legs during the entire run. I’m a fan!! One super cool thing about SportShield is that is also comes in towelette form, which I think would be convenient for emergency situations on long runs or races. The small packet seems to be a perfect size to stick in a pocket or fuel belt. I didn’t receive a sample of the towelettes for testing, but I would love to try it out.
Overall, I am a fan of SportShield. It did exactly what it promises to do, and was smoother and easier to apply than Body Glide. I recommend it!
