When applying, Thigh Rescue glides on easily, the formula melting just enough to yield against your skin. The balm has a smooth consistency that applies between the thighs and it’s definitely one of those products where a little goes a long way. In fact, use too much of it at once and you may be sliding around in your seat. I typically concentrate my application to the circle of skin where my thighs touch and occasionally around my bikini line to help with chafing from my underwear. Because Thigh Rescue is intended to sit on top of the skin rather than completely sink into it, I felt the product on my body throughout the day. If you’re someone who's sensitive to that and prefers weightless formulas, this might be one thing to note. To me, the feeling of balm on my skin is worth the benefits that Thigh Rescue has to offer. Even as the temperatures rose and the sweat began to pool around my thighs in crowded subways, they slid past each other with ease.
Another thing I was concerned about throughout testing was how Thigh Rescue would interact with my clothes. Back when I first used Thigh Rescue a couple of years ago, I made the mistake of wearing a more delicate fabric, which showed some product transfer to my clothing. A quick scroll through the site’s ‘How to Use’ section would’ve prevented this. It states, “Note that product transfer to clothing isn’t common, but could occur. Not recommended for use with silk and other similarly delicate fabrics.” Lesson learned: Always read the the fine print, kids! That said, I opted for a pair of durable cotton shorts this time around. Lo and behold, not a stain in sight!
