How A Firefighter Helped Stop My Thighs Feeling Like They Were On Fire
In The Middle of An Orlando Theme Park
A Incredible New Approach To An Age-Old Skin Problem That Is Rarely Talked About
For some weird reason I've always felt like I was the only one struggling with this, since I've never seen other people talk about it.
But sometimes I feel like my thighs are their own worst enemies…
When I walk, they rub together, especially when it’s hot outside! I’ll admit, it’s embarrassing, but apparently, it’s a pretty common thing.
What am I talking about?
Not only is it annoying and painful, but the rash it causes can also take forever to heal, and recently on a family trip to Orlando, it was BAD.
Here’s what happened…
So, there we are in the middle of Universal Studios waiting in line for a ride with my daughter, feeling like my thighs were on fire. As I wiped the sweat from my forehead, a woman walks up pushing a stroller to get in line behind us.
The sign said the wait for the ride was 17-minutes long, so like most people do, after a few minutes we struck up a friendly conversation of small-talk while we waited. She said her name was Michelle and her son’s name was Ben and that she and her family had moved to Florida about a year ago.
I told her "My name is Caroline and this is Emma. We’re here visiting from Chicago so I’m not used to the Florida weather. I wasn’t prepared for this heat and humidity and it’s really doing a number on my skin…" as I pointed to the redness on my legs.
She said "Ouch. That looks painful. I know exactly what you’re going through because it happened to me when we first moved here."
Then she reaches into her bag, pulls out a bright blue bottle, hands it to me and says…
"Here, this will help. It took me forever to find something that works as good as this and doesn’t contain any toxic ingredients. I use it for his rashes (pointing to her son) and for me too when my thighs get like that. Put this on your skin where it’s rubbing together, it’s a lifesaver in situations like this. There’s a special ingredient in it that relieves pain and irritation in just a few minutes."*
Although it was a little embarrassing, I did exactly what she said.
And you know what? She was right, it was a lifesaver!
By the time it was our turn to get on the ride the pain and irritation were gone. I couldn’t believe it! When we got off the ride I asked if I could take a picture of the bottle so I could look it up when we got home, which is exactly what I did.
And this is where the firefighter comes in…
Ok, so what does a firefighter have to do with this story, and more importantly what do they know about chafed and irritated skin?
Turns out, a lot!
As you know, firefighters work in some of the hottest environments imaginable. Not only do they sweat from intense heat, but they are also covered in incredibly tough gear that protects them from fire.
However, while their gear protects them from fire, it is horrific on their skin and leads to all kinds of painful skin issues. So, to say that firefighters deal with chafed skin more than most people ever will is an understatement.
After years of being on the job, dealing with chafing and irritation with no relief in sight, a firefighter in Utah set out to solve the problem of painful chafing and rashes for him and his crew once and for all.
What started as a search to heal his own skin and provide a little relief, turned out to be something much more than he ever expected, and what he created is nothing short of amazing.
What is it?
It’s called Squeaky Cheeks, and this unique formula was created using potent all-natural ingredients with unmatched absorption abilities that draws in toxins, bacteria, and fungi and provides nearly instant relief and helps to prevent the growth of bacteria that causes odor and makes chafing and blisters more painful.*
Tested and endorsed by podiatrists (foot doctors), professional athletes, soldiers, and hard-working people alike. It’s even Mom approved! It works so well that they guarantee results or your money back.
And the best part?
This non-toxic super-absorbent hypo-allergenic formula doesn’t contain any toxic talc whatsoever and as I found out, it has a special ingredient in it that relieves pain and irritation within minutes.* It’s taken me a long time to find a powder that’s actually good for your skin that works as well as this one. It's light and effective and doesn't cake on, and it smells fresh without having an overwhelming scent. In fact, the scent is great!
So how does it work?
Squeaky Cheeks creates a non-caking layer of protection over the skin that not only reduces frictional skin irritation, but it also absorbs sweat, moisture, and bacteria that causes chafing, odors, blisters, rashes, and more.*
With a variety of uses possible from everyday dusting to baby rash to athletic uses and everything in between, this incredible formula protects already chafed skin from further irritation and is the best alternative to traditional powders with toxic ingredient concerns.
With recent reports of some very big multinational companies being sued for lying about the toxic talc and other harmful ingredients in their skin and baby powders, many people are looking for better non-toxic alternatives for relief of irritated skin.
Fortunately for us, this US-based company has stepped in to fill the void.
So what’s in it?
Bentonite Clay. This is the ‘special sauce’ so to speak, and it works in two ways. First, like a magnet and then like a sponge. Here’s how it works. Bentonite clay contains negatively charged ions which attract positively charged ions of other particles such as toxins and bacteria like a magnet. Then it binds to them and absorbs them like a sponge, and as the clay is removed from the body, it takes the toxins or other molecules with it.*
In research going back as far as 1995, Bentonite clay has been shown to be effective at preventing or diminishing allergic reactions from poison ivy and poison oak (1), and in research involving babies with diaper rash, it was shown to improve over 93% of infants within 6 hours and completely clear 90% of them within 3 days of first use.

Slippery Elm Bark. Another time-tested natural remedy used by Native Americans for centuries for its healing properties for wounds, boils, ulcers, burns, and skin inflammation, Slippery elm is one of the best kept secrets that many only discover after diving deep into natural cosmetics and natural remedies. It contains vitamins and minerals like beta-carotene, selenium, calcium, zinc, iron, potassium, magnesium, manganese, B vitamins, tannins, phosphorus, and vitamin C. With so many vitamins and minerals, it’s easy to see why it’s so beneficial for the skin.*
Corn Starch. Corn starch is a natural moisture-absorbing powder that easily soaks the excess oil or sebum from the skin. Often used as an alternative to chemically formulated talcum powders, this lightweight powder is rich in antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which helps to soothe irritated skin, leaving it soft and supple.
Essential oils. Essential oils are a key ingredient in many products, and they are a great way to naturally combat odor, heal, and soothe. Squeaky Cheeks utilizes each oil's healing properties as well as their odor defeating properties to not only help you smell better, but also to help create an antibacterial barrier between you and the stink. One of their oil's main healing properties is to soothe sore muscles, ease stress, and alleviate headaches!*
Squeaky Cheeks was invented out of necessity for firefighters battling agonizing heat on the front lines.
It's designed for life's most rigorous activities to keep feet and skin dry all-day and reduce the growth of bacteria.* Just like band-aids, it’s one of those things I feel like everyone should have in their bathroom cabinet for the times that you need it, and in my opinion it's the most effective 100% all-natural high-performance body and foot powder on the market.
It is formulated specifically to help heal and prevent:
- Friction Injuries
- Heat Rashes
- And more!
No matter if you’re an athlete, you work outside, or you’re a parent looking to heal baby rash, if you’re searching for a non-toxic and healthier option to manage sweat, odors, rashes, and chafing, Squeaky Cheeks is exactly what you’re looking for.
On The Job
Sweating & Chaffing
They have three different blends to choose from (including an unscented version) and each one is effective for preventing chafing, blisters, rash, and other skin irritations caused by moisture, sweat, friction, heat rash, and clothing. You can use it on your feet, under your arms, and any other place you can think of.
But it gets even better!
Because one bottle costs only $13.95 and it’s guaranteed to prevent chafing, blisters, rashes, and odor or your money back. That’s right, they offer a 100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!
It's so popular that it's nearly impossible to keep in stock, so ordering a 3-pack has been a lifesaver for many of their customers.
If you’ve ever dealt with chafing, rashes, and skin irritations, then you know exactly how painful and annoying they can be.
For me, it’s always been a problem, and while I’ve tried every possible remedy you can imagine, nothing ever seemed to work. Until that day in the theme park when I was handed this radical new approach to healing chafed and irritated skin.
Will it work for you? There’s only one way to find out!
