    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.

        Easy to use product. I have a pair of sandals I love, but they rub on my toe and cause pain. Rub a bit of this on the contact spot on my foot, and the problem is solved.

          i was pretty skeptical about this - my feet are made of tissue paper, i swear, they blister so easily - but the reviews here made me consider giving it a try. i'm glad i did - it really does work; i'm impressed, and will be keeping it in my bag always.

              This is GREAT! It goes on quickly, no residue or lingering odor. In fact I thought "oh this won't do ANYTHING" but it did. I wore shoes that always ALWAYS form a blister on my big left toe and this time...on my feet over 6 hours, and NOTHING! It is my new favorite beauty find!

                I carry this on me at all times. It's an absolute must for any woman who doesn't wear sneakers every day, which is most women. When I wear shoes with straps or shoes that rub ANYWHERE on my foot, I rub this stick on those places directly on the foot, and it truly prevents blisters. The key is to use the stick for prevention, because once you get a blister, it's band-aid or shoe-change time. The smell is mood-altering. Perfumers, take note!

                  this stuff seriously works! put it all over your feet before wearing shoes that rub and you won't have blisters. i usually carry it around during the day to reapply. if you already have a blister, this product won't help as much, but it definitely prevents blisters.

                    I LOVE this. I love my heels and I love my flats but I suffer from really FAT feet and everytime I want to wear cute shoes my pinky toe rubs up against the side and cause nasty blisters that sting and scar! I bought this product and I wear it whenever I wear my flats or my heels and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. No more sticky band-aids with the sticky left over residue that stays on your skin even though you try to scrub and scrub it off. I keep one in my purse, my car, and my home!

                      The Friction Block Stick is so easy to use. Just glide it over the areas a shoe might rub, sandals or the heel of a shoe, and go. It prevents blisters or raw spots from occurring. I bought it for travel but found some shoes just rub. I just apply after my shower and can go with no painful results. It is small enough to tuck into the smallest of purses.

                        I use this whenever I run. It's not just great for feet - I apply it wherever there are seams that chafe me during a run (inner thighs, underarms near the sport bra etc.). I highly recommend it!!!

                          This is great for wearing sandals that are extremely painful to walk in. I had these sandals that were cute but the soles made me get blisters so I would not be able to wear them during long walks. But after buying this, I was able to walk long distances without feeling any pain or getting blisters.

                          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.
