I've used Assos chamois cream for years, then tried this on a recommendation. For me, they have similar levels of protection, and there is more of this product at a lower price point. I recently completed a 102 mile, 9 hour, 11,480 ft. of climbing graveldirt ride using Button Hole, and my nether regions came out fine.
Not sure what held me back from chamois butter so long..... It's absolutely amazing! I was tired of the friction and saddle sores, so I have this a whirl. LOVE IT! And the menthol is a really good feel too, very soothing.... Just trying to figure out how exactly to apply it.... Seems best right before pulling the bib straps up
Just apply and ride. you do get a tingle at first (a plus if you like that). After that you have an excellent cream for an excellent price. it always works all the time, and is my go to cream that i buy two and three at a time when it is on sale. Excellent product!!!
I've been using Button Hole mentholated chamois cream for several years with nary a problem no blisters, boils, infections, nada! Simply put, it does the job, but it is a tad pricey, which is why I wait for a sale to replenish my supply.
