Cool, problem-solving body care brand Megababe has just launched at Boots, online and in-store, and one product in particular – Megababe Thigh Rescue Anti-Friction Stick – is already proving to be a huge hit with Boots customers.

Priced at £12 for a full-size stick or £8 for a convenient travel-friendly version, Thigh Rescue is an award-winning solid cream product with aloe vera, grapeseed oil and vitamin E that glides over the skin, leaving a protective film. layer that prevents the skin from chafing or sticking together.

Suitable for use on the thighs, arms, the backs of the feet – or basically anywhere chafing occurs – Megababe Thigh Rescue seems like a must-have for summer if you notice that your bare thighs often rub together uncomfortably when wearing a skirt or wearing shorts. It can also be a lifesaver if your new shoes chafe, or if you do a lot of sports such as running and cycling, reports the Mirror.

It’s already a huge hit with Boots shoppers as it has racked up nearly 1,500 reviews, 97% of which are five-star reviews.

One satisfied customer titled his review “I can’t live the summer without it” and wrote, “I bought this to help with thigh irritation when I wear shorts in the summer. After a long day outside, my thighs were red and sore. wear shorts under all my dresses. This thing works wonders and is a literal must-have for hot days and shorts.”
