Ladies, if you have issues with things getting a little raw down there, get this stuff. I had no idea it exists until I was complaining about unwanted numbness and stuff going on. She said try chamois butter. What. A. Difference.
I apply chamois butt'r before every ride. Recently, I rode the Erie Canalway averaging close to 65 miles a day. Paceline Eurostyle provided a refreshing start to the ride with the cooling formula and it prevented any saddle sores or aches and pains along the way. Paceline Eurostyle exceeded my expections.
Perfect cream for my undercarriage. LIght scent and not too perfumy. Firm viscosity but neither chunky nor loose. Great durability for long distance rides (in high heatrainsnow). Washes easily out of chamois with no residue.
I also use a light smear on my feet at potential blister spots in tight road shoes.
I spent a year with saddle sores that wouldn't go away. I finally figured out it was the lavendar oil in the cream I was using. I switched to Eurostyle and my sores were gone within a week. I ride 150-200 milesweek.
I am a strong proponent of double blind testing algorithms. I havent seen any for these products and wonder why some of those English cycling sites havent done any direct comparisons, you know, cheek to cheek tests. Until then, this is my favorite, thanks to Kelly Aicher. I will be eternally grateful.
I use chamois cream for every ride. It lessens friction in all my bibs, its not too greasy, lasts all day, has a slight warming quality on winter days, and its euro smell isnt overwhelming. Finally, its cost per ride is lower than any other cream.
Overall this is a good product. I will continue to use but I feel it absorbs into the skin quicker than I would like. Longer rides 30 or more I find I need to reapply and a jar is a bit hard to take with.
I've been really pleased with this stuff. It has a nice creamy texture and the cooling menthol sensation is subtle, not overwhelming. I also like that it comes in a tub, which should be nice for getting use of every last bit of it.
I am a big DZ Nuts fan. I could use a little of that and it felt good on my skin. I began to use Eurostyle on the trainer indoors and on relatively short rises (less than 2 hours) out doors. Any longer and I should reapply it. DZ seemed to last longer. But I started to use a little more Eurostyle and could stretch it out to 4 hours. It is a little less expensive (usually) than DZ and (sometimes) easier to get. Both are certainly a step up from the Nashbar generic chamois cream (and there is nothing wrong with theirs, I used it alone for a long time). Feeling bathed in butter is not for everyone but the Eurostyle really seems to hold up in the heat and rain. It is now what I use most of the time indoors and out. I have never done more than 350 miles in a week and my longest rides are usually just over 60 miles. I use a thin Cobb saddle and the other two varieties have left me with hot spots at times, not this stuff (so far).
