Retail Therapy: Julie Berg Foot Potion Blister Magic

Posted by Filed Under: Gear & Apparel

I’ve been running for five years and I love the sport. The only complaint I have is blisters. I’ve tried everything available on the market relating to foot care and blister prevention and nothing has worked. Absolutely nothing, including BodyGlide, Vaseline, moleskin, thick or thin socks, nor any type of shoe—until now.

I’ve been a reader of ultra-distance runner Julie Berg’s blog for several years. A few weeks ago, I read about a solution she had come up with by mixing various ingredients she found in the first aid section of a discount store and has now made available to the public.

I received my shipment of Julie Berg’s Foot Potion Blister Magic recently. And I have to say, so far, it has worked for me. If you’d like to try it out for yourself for only $13.95, visit Julie’s online store.

    Susan,

    Have you ever tried WrightSocks? They are thin, but more importantly they have a double layer. The outer layer does the sliding around with the inside of the shoe, but the inner layer doesn’t. I haven’t had a blister since I began wearing them.

    Note: I do NOT work for WrightSocks!

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for the comment. I have tried Wright socks and sadly, they didn’t work for me. I’m sure they are a great product for many people though. I really like the Balega socks, my socks of choice!

    I too tried Wrightsocks, they are good up to 12 miles, at sixteen I started to feel hot spots, when I do 20 in them I got the beginning of a blister, and when I did my marathon, I got 2 large blisters, one on the ball of my foot and one on my big toe. They are best limited to short runs of 12 miles or less. Same with Bodyglide, moleskin seems to work the best for me so far.

    Wrightsocks do not work for me either.  It took me a long time to figure this out as I rotate shoes and socks.  I also fully believed the marketing script.
