Real Women Say This Is The Best Product For Inner Thigh Chafing, So We Tried It For Ourselves

We received a lot of positive feedback following my post about 5 simple ways to prevent inner thigh chafing. Most people who commented on social media posted about the various products they use to solve this annoying issue. However, one product kept showing up in the comments and I wanted to know what all the fuss was about, so I tried it for myself, along with our senior editor, Justine. The product: Monistat Chafing Relief Powder GelHere are our thoughts, which were the same in all categories, for the most part.

Let me start off with actually buying the product. At the drugstore, I attempted to search on my own before asking an employee. I wasn’t sure what aisle a product like this would be in, so after wasting enough time, I caved and asked for help. I won’t lie, I was a little embarrassed when asking for this product and I kind of looked around to see if anyone else was in earshot. After getting the product, it was time to test it out.

Packaging: Justine felt the tube was tiny and it wouldn’t get you very far. I didn’t think it was super tiny, but it wasn’t big either. It cost $11 and I felt for the price it was a decent-sized tube.

Smell: We both agreed (and loved) that there was absolutely zero scent.

Texture: Justine said it went on really smoothly and dried instantly. She noted it’s “virtually undetectable on the skin except for making it feel smooth.” I also thought it felt super smooth when applied. If you’ve ever used a face primer, the texture felt almost the same as that. It also didn’t feel heavy or like I had even put anything on, not even lotion.

Results: We both felt it worked really well. It definitely provided a smooth surface and didn’t cause any irritation. It held up for a decent amount of time, but I wonder how it would be on a hot summer day without reapplying.

I definitely wouldn’t be opposed to using this product in my personal life, outside of testing it for work purposes. If it makes me feel more comfortable while wearing a dress or skirt, then why not? Thank you, everyone, for all your positive comments about this topic and recommending your favorite products!
