While we are totally here for the early British heatwave and those long sunny days in the pub garden, the arrival of summer brings one inevitable problem: chub rub.
Yep, for all our floaty prairie dresses and liberal applications of talcum powder, the inner thigh chafe is real, and it happens to the best of us. Luckily, a burn-free summer could be around the corner, thanks to a bargain baby cream from ASDA.
Everyone’s favourite supermarket has come up trumps with their Little Angels Liquid Talc, which is designed to leave babies’ skin soft and silky smooth.
One very wise shopper, Paula Deegan, discovered on her supermarket sweep that the ingenious baby cream actually works wonders on chub rub too.
According to Paula, the liquid talc is a dream at combating the issues caused by summer humidity – think sweat, friction, and of course, the dreaded thigh burn.
“To all my big busted ladies, or those with thick thighs/some chub… this is a godsend,” she wrote.
“I’ve been using it under my boobs & thighs and it has really stopped the sweating & chafing in this hot weather!”
Happily for us, the cream is a fuss-free alternative to dusting your body down with regular talc, meaning you can apply like a lotion (and save your clothes from mess in the process.) Better yet, it’s only 87p!
We repeat, it’s only 87p!
And, as we’ve come to expect from our clean beauty products, the liquid talc is paraben free, hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved.
In the words of one Mumsnet user, “The chub rub ends NOW.”
