    TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS TO BUY THIS!!!!! Spread the word so it won't ever be discontinued!!!! I love my shoes - pointy toed ones, high heels, flats etc. However I've been close to throwing out all of them because I always get blisters on my little toes and on the side of my big toes. Its so bad that I cannot wear closed-toed shoes in the summer at all, and many sandals as well because of the location of the straps. Someone recommended this to me - she wears closed-toed shoes year round without hosiery or socks - even in the humid miserable summers in Washington DC. This product has saved my feet. I can now wear closed-toed shoes in the summer!!! If its especially hot and humid and you're walking alot, you should reapply. The stick is smaller than a stick of gum, so its easy to carry around in your purse!

    A MUST BUY PRODUCT!!!!

    I read all these wonderful reviews and expect this stuff to work miracles. But, I wore a new pair of flat loafers for the first time and they were rubbing my pinky toes. I have had to keep reapplying all day. I think it's helping, but not like everyone else listed. The stick is very convenient and it smells really, really good. I didn't think I'd have to keep putting it on. So, it's just ok.

      Comments about Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick, .34 oz:

      I use this in areas prone to chafing during half marathons: bra band, armband, tops of compression socks. My husband uses it during marathons to prevent nipple chafing and elastic band burns from his shorts. It works, and for both of us, remains effective the entire length of our entire runs, even with heavy sweating. I also use it with new shoes, on my heals and toes to prevent blisters. It's odorless and lightweight; it doesn't feel like anything is on your skin once applied.

          Comments about Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick, .34 oz:

          I bought this stick for blisters that were forming on my heel due to a new pair of shoes. It worked okay for that purpose. Definitely helped. However, I suffer from thigh burn when I wear dresses and I used to buy an expensive glide stick used by marathon runners, but I read someone else describe using this Bandaid stick instead. So I tried it and it worked wonderfully!

                  A complete waste. It rubs off skin almost immediately when it comes in contact with any kind of surface. No protection or relief at all. Use a bandaid.

                    Just glide it on any part of your foot that might become irritated from your shoe. It looks like a very small deodorant stick. And you can carry it with you, in case your shoes begin to rub. I think I've become addicted to it. Why didn't someone think of this before?

                        I used to get blisters all the time when wearing shoes without tights in the summer -- until I discovered this product! Now, I apply this product to my heels, toes, and the sides of my foot before slipping on my heels or sandals, and I never get blisters. So glad I discovered this so I can enjoy my beautiful shoes without having them cut up my feet.

                          I have found a use for this product that I haven't seen mentioned here. I have this mysterious pain in my big toe. It feels like it's irritated and tender, but there's nothing visible on the toe. The discomfort actually seems to be under the skin. Maybe I have a bone spur or a touch of gout or something like that. At first I thought that some shoes just rubbed me the wrong way, but over time, pretty much all shoes caused the discomfort (except for sandals where no part of the shoe rubs against the toe). I've tried wearing seamless socks, changing the style of shoes, but nothing helped. I decided to give this a try, and it works! When I put this product on in the morning, I can get thru most if not all day without any pain/discomfort in my toe. I guess eliminating the friction eliminates whatever it is internally that's causing the discomfort.

                                Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick

                                 – Breaking in a new pair of shoes or exercising at the gym may lead to friction-induced injuries like blisters or chafing. In order to prevent these painful problems, you need to reduce the amount of rubbing between your clothes or shoes and your skin. Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick uses a unique lubricating formula to consistently prevent the excessive friction responsible for many common skin injuries. Easy to apply, this product provides long-lasting protection.

                                Prevent Blisters and Chafing



                                Skin injuries caused by excess friction can be inconvenient, painful, and potentially dangerous. Blisters, for example, may become infected once they pop, and chafing might make it difficult for you to participate in your favorite activities. To prevent excess friction, Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick decreases the amount that external irritants are able to rub against your skin. Ideal for use on your feet or ankles when you are wearing a pair of shoes that tend to rub uncomfortably, this product easily glides across your skin. Its non-messy formula leaves an invisible barrier that makes it the perfect choice for open shoes. Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick won't stain clothes or make your skin slippery.

                                Company History and Philosophy



                                Invented in 1920 by Earle Dickson, an employee of Johnson & Johnson, Band-Aid brand adhesive bandages revolutionized the way people could dress their own minor wounds at home. Dickson first created the bandages to help his wife, but he soon pitched the idea to his boss. Almost immediately, the first Band-Aids were born. For almost a century, Johnson & Johnson has continued to innovate its Band-Aid products. In addition to traditional bandages, the company now makes products that are designed to specifically promote the healing of burns, blisters, punctures, and various other wounds. It has also recently transitioned into injury prevention with products like Band-Aid Active Friction Block Stick.
