Zealios makes great sunscreen that holds up very well to the hot California sun. They also make Betwixt chamois cream that we were talking about. I’ve tried their body care and it’s pretty good but I don’t use it daily.
@PaleGail after being a long-time user of Assos chamois cream, I switched to Betwixt. I like it so much better! It seems to “bind” better to the skin without the bulk, it lasts well through my rides, and I did not feel like I am swimming in cream “down there”!
The Zealios sunscreen is so light and makes the skin feel so good (soft, absorbs quickly), I might be using it daily and not only as a sports sunscreen. In addition, it is natural, broad spectrum and uses zinc oxide.
Shampoo/conditioner- I don’t swim so I asked my daughter to try it- she is young but very diligent and careful when choosing her hair products. She swims 6 days/week and she really likes the the shampoo and loves the conditioner. Her hair looks amazing too, shiny and with no build up of chlorine.
With the 40% discount we have going on for 10 days, it’s a good chance to try it and see if you like their products.The codes are under “member discounts” in the members-only area of the forum.
Just checking to see if the promotion is underway and code was sent by email? I’m a huge fan of Betwixt chamois cream and would like to take advantage of the discount even in the midst of chaos! Now being told we might not have power until Friday, and am super bummed I may miss some of the week 4 workouts . Thanks!
Got it! Thanks. And I do plan to continue with a membership-I haven’t gone to the website in depth yet to understand the options. Ideally I’m interested in an arrangement where I define some goals and then get some tailored coaching toward those goals. Is that how your overall program works, Theia? I’m guessing others might be interested as well.
Thanks for the info @Coach_Theia!! I just started using Assos chamois cream this year but its kind of a pain to get - have to order the women’s and i like it better than the regular. Willing to give this stuff a try and i should always have sunscreen on
@stacypro tough question… it is in the middle, I think, and more on the thin side- however- I feel like it “binds” to the skin and it’s not like some of the other ones that seem to vanish rather quickly. Maybe @hollybw and @bikechick666 can provide their comments as well.
Oh, and I use it on my Zwift mega sessions. Holds up better than others. I keep buying new ones because the names sound so cute but they don’t work as well for me. Squirrel Nut Butter, Button Hole, DZ Nuts, Hoo Ha Ride Glide, etc.
I consider it fairly thick, but that makes it easier to apply than my other mainstay, Hoo Ha Ride Glide. Many will prefer Betwixt because it doesn’t have a strong (any?) menthol. Lots of people hate menthol in chamois cream. I kind of like it, but it’s not essential. We always used Betwixt until it disappeared. I’m glad it’s back!
