Giveaway! Aquaphor Gift Set and $50 Gift Card

To go along with last night’s post on Top 10 Tips for Running in the Rain, Aquaphor has offered a very generous prize package for one lucky reader! You can enter to win an assortment of Aquaphor Healing Ointment, a CamelBak Water Bottle, and a $50 Visa gift card. How great is that?


While I talked in yesterday’s post how great Aquaphor is for preventing blisters when running in the rain, the Aquaphor brand is currently emphasizing the many capabilities of their multi-use Aquaphor Healing Ointment for summer. You can generate a lot of sweat during a summertime workout, so Aquaphor is great for making sure you don’t get chafing from sweaty skin. Furthermore, they suggest that it’s also helpful for protecting cuts from thorns while hiking, covering scrapes from a tumble during kickball (or just scrapes from running like a complete klutz, which I know plenty about), or even healing minor burns from a barbecue. From my own personal non-running use, I can tell you it’s also great for flip flop chafing – I live in flip flops over the summer, and walking around NYC all day can definitely do a number on my feet! Dabbing Aquaphor under the straps (assuming they’re rubber and not cloth, which can get icky) minimizes the chafing and makes me comfortable traipsing around Manhattan all day. The Aquaphor Facebook page has plenty of other skin tips, if you’d like to check it out.

To enter to win, leave a comment telling me your best tip for keeping skin protected in the summer heat. You can also earn extra entries by following me on Twitter and Facebook, an extra entry for liking Aquaphor on Facebook, and finally by tweeting about the giveaway (up to once a day).

Contest will run through Tuesday July 9 at 11:59pm ET, at which time winners will be chosen by random drawing. Winners will be announced on this page (if you leave your email/Twitter handle, I’m also happy to notify you that way), and they will have one week to email me in order to claim their prize. Contest entry is open to US Residents who are 18 years of age or older.

Disclaimer: Aquaphor provided me with the same prize package that is being awarded to the winner, but I received no other compensation for this post, nor was I pressured to write a positive review. (In fact, as mentioned in yesterday’s post, I have been using Aquaphor since 2009 and paying for it myself!) All opinions expressed in today’s/yesterday’s post are mine alone.

  1. I have learned to lube up well, especially under my bra straps, on long runs….learned that one the hard, ouchy way!

  2. Use sunscreen every day. For my face, I apply a moisturizer with a light SPF a well for moisture and protection!

  3. Must. Use. Sunscreen! Not just in summer… but always! (I’m very fair but this is good advice for all!)

  4. So. Much. Sunblock. Nothing’s worse than a Garmin tan!

    I need to get better about chafe prevention – I’m in week 4 of marathon training and I have a couple of marks that are like – daaaang!

  5. Definitely sunscreen. Also Bodyglide on my inner thighs to prevent any chafing from chub rub now that I’m wearing shorts instead of capris.

    Oh I would have to say the sunscreen is most important, but also to keep your skin moisturized with a good lotion!

  9. Drinking water! I’m constantly dehydrated, so when I do properly hydrate, I notice my skin doesn’t feel nearly dried out!

  10. Sunscreen, and limit your exposure until you’ve built up a pretty good base 🙂 Works like a charm!

  11. Just started using Aquaphor this year to protect myself from sports bra chafing. Also I wear sunscreen on my face everyday and try to drink a lot of water.

    My grandfather worked outside his whole life, and he wore long pants, and long sleeve shirts. Now that I spend a lot of time working in my yard, I do the same. Sunscreen on exposed areas, a hat, sunglasses and I drink lots of water to keep my skin hydrated.

  13. Summer running essentials for me are hat/visor, sunglasses, sunscreen, Bodyglide, water, and electrolyte tabs. And running very early before the sun is strong, like 5:30 or 6:00 am start. However, while I do slather bodyglide on my feet to avoid blistering, Aquaphor seems like it would be easier to apply, so I am interested in trying this even if I don’t win. My son used to have a lot of diaper rashes when he was younger, so I certainly used a lot of Aquaphor back in those days.

  14. Remember to use sunscreen, including lip balm with SPF. Thanks for the chance to win!

  15. My best tip is to carry a little travel size lotion/cream in purse and reapply when can. . .also don’t forget spf, including on your hands

  16. Ooo, so glad I saw this! Year-round, I use a facial moisturizer with SPF 15, which is my top tip. No matter if I end up in the sun unexpectedly – I’m covered!

    In the summer in particular, I like the spray on sunscreen that Neutrogena (sp?) makes. Perfect for reaching between my shoulder blades myself!

  17. Important to use all natural sunscreen…watch those chemicals! Also, moisturize right out of shower or after washing your face right on top of the water beadlets which will seal in the moisture.
