Ease-of-Use and Application
As it is with many things, in particular when it comes to athletics, how EASY it is to use a product or gear ranks near the top of the list of priorities and factors I consider at the moment I make a purchasing decision. There are plenty of quality running or fitness products I have considered and even gone as far as purchasing over the years which I have ultimately either returned to the store simply because I found them a hassle to use. The pjuractive 2skin
anti-chafing gel will not be one of them; quite the opposite as a matter of fact. In a little over a month’s time, this gel has won me over because of how easy it is to handle and carry, as well as its simplicity and cleanliness to apply and use. This is all I am using now for my anti-chafing protection on my feet, legs, chest, and shoulders. It has replaced what I previously used for anti-chafing, which was Aquaphor and Body Glide (alternated between the two). While those products did protect me when I used them, they can both be messy and sticky to apply. The pjuractive gel is much cleaner and easier to apply than both. As it is shown on the following video, a small amount applied with the fingertips to the area of the body that needs the protection goes on easy and smooth, and in just a few seconds integrates the upper layer of skin with ZERO mess or sticky residue.
The 2skin gel is not just for running. During my testing, I used it for a number of physical activities besides my runs, such as a day of volunteering with my wife at the Veterans Cemetery picking up Christmas wreaths. I knew the repetitive motion of bending down hundreds of times to pick up wreaths and taking them to disposal containers, in particular on a rainy day, could cause chafing, so we both used it that day on our waists and feet.
The pjuractive gel completely protected us and we had zero issues with chafing that day. It is completely waterproof so it can be used for triathlons and swimming. Literally, anyone doing any type of repetitive physical activity that could result in skin irritation due to the rubbing of clothing or gear on skin can benefit from this product.
My top observation from using the pjuractive 2skin gel over these last few weeks is what I believe wins over most people, and that is its quality. I have used it for long runs of up to 14 miles and it has given me perfect protection throughout without having to reapply a single time. From the moment you apply it, to when you’re involved in the activity, and afterwards while taking a shower and changing, you recognize that it truly protects your skin and is effective. A critical consideration here is that this is not simply the type of product that you can just think of as optional. Going without anti-chafing protection in running or athletic events is not just a gamble, but also a sure-way to unnecessarily suffer either during the events or afterwards. You simply have to protect your skin and prevent chafing, and once you recognize and accept that fact, you should then opt for the one that delivers the highest quality while also being the easiest to use and most versatile product for that: pjuractive 2skin.
