I love summer and finally being able to wear all of the shorts and cute dresses BUT as a member of Thick Thigh Nation summer can be a struggle.
humidity + sweat + me walking a lot = thigh chafing hell
I’d been curious about Lush’s Silky Underwear Dusting Powder since I’ve stopped using regular old baby powder, but I didn’t pick it up until I got the nod of approval from one of my friends and fellow member of TTN. This powder uses cornstarch and kaolin clay to absorb moisture, cocoa butter to moisturize, and is scented with jasmine and vetiver. I picked mine up while I was in Toronto (so my bottle looks a little different than the US packaging) and tested it out while I was walking around the city in a dress. It worked well to absorb moisture and help my thighs glide smoothly instead of being a sticky, sweaty mess. I did have to reapply every couple of hours but I was doing a TON of walking outside in the heat, I don’t think you would have to reapply as often under normal circumstances. This is definitely a must have for me for festivals, amusement parks, and exploring new cities during the summer.
My only complaint is that I wish Lush offered a larger size of this powder. I love that the bottle is small and I can toss it in my purse to use on the go but I would like a bigger one to keep at home. I also HATE the dispenser/lid of the packaging! It dispenses out of a pop-top style lid instead of a traditional powder top with all the little holes. It’s a small thing but it was really annoying to me when I’m using it.
