If you’ve ever run for any extended period of time and you have skin, it’s likely you’ve experienced the dreaded chafe. You know, that burning, red, screaming, patch of skin that you usually don’t even find until after the run or worse, when you jump into the shower and scream your head off after the hot water finds it for you. Chafing is caused by repeated friction on your skin with pressure points, most usually clothing or other skin. I am especially prone to chafing around my sport bra area. I have scars from my sport bra rubbing me raw, especially underneath my arms.
The first thing I noticed about the Sport Shield when I applied it was that it was NOT GREASY. I’ve tried a few other skin protectants and they usually go on really thick and have a greasy consistency. Not the Sport Shield. It was very light and it has no odor. I really like that it has a roller ball applicator too. Makes for really easy application and you don’t have to get your hands covered in the stuff to apply it.
I’ve been using it for about 2 months now and let me tell you, this stuff works! I put it on my usual chafe points before a run and I’m good to go. I live in a very humid, wet Southern climate and the humidity and my buckets of sweat don’t even budge the Sport Shield. It is totally sweat proof and waterproof. I used it all during my marathon training and on race day and had zero chafing in my usual friction points.
2Toms also sent me a few samples of their single use packets. I love these for my purse or gym bag. I keep one in my purse for work, especially if I know I’m going to be walking around a lot in dress shoes. I just rub it all along my heel and Voila, no blisters! It works like a charm. And because it’s non-staining and non-greasy it doesn’t leave any kind of residue on my shoes or clothes.
And 2Toms backs Sport Shield with a 100% guarantee! 2Toms also makes a whole like of Blister Shield and Butt Shield products for blister, chafing and rash prevention as well as a Stink Free Shoe and Gear Spray to help eliminate runner funk odor from your gear.

I am now a 2Toms convert. This stuff is great! With Sport Shield you can totally say “Buh-bye!” to shower burn!
