No pain, no gain, right? Well, Jack Black believes the aches, pains and discomforts that come from a good workout should be short lived. Their Performance Remedy line of sports therapy skin care was created to soothe, heal, revitalize and replenish the parts of you that need a little tenderness after working and playing hard. As such, I decided to try out two of their products for myself.
Chafing is a real problem for me, especially in the summer months when I take my workouts outdoors. So I was hopeful that Jack’s Dry Down Friction-Free Powder would live up to their chafe-free claims. And to my delight, it did just that!
Dry Down keeps skin silky, smooth and dry for enhanced comfort and chafe-free workouts. The ultra-fine, talc-free formula quickly absorbs moisture to offer exceptional protection from friction and irritation, for refreshing comfort in the most demanding environments.
The secret to Dry Down is four key ingredients – Pure Cornstarch, Organic Green Tea, Organic Cucumber, and Lavender. This might sound like some new-age hippie stuff, but it seriously works. If you’re looking for some southern comfort, pick up a canister of Dry Down today!
A 6oz canister of Dry Down retails for $19, and is available at Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Sephora.com, Saks Fifth Avenue, and at www.getjackblack.com.
