A few weeks ago, I mentioned that a few personal style posts will be popping up on the site. Ready? Here's the first one, and it's my number one secret weapon:
Band-Aid Blister Blocker. Buy it, use it, love it.
Honestly, it's amazing, and I don't use that word liberally. I've worn the heels at left for 8+ hours with no blisters, thanks to a quick swipe before slipping into my shoes. It also passes muster with some d'orsay pumps with a very deep cut in the vamp, plus a pair of riding boots that always rub my heels. Magic, I tell you!
Note that this is a preventative measure. If you already have a blister, it's not going to help you. Apply it anywhere your shoe will touch your foot (well, not the sole) and I promise you'll avoid the ugly day-after-bandaid routine.
You can get it in the footcare aisle at any drug store, or online at drugstore.com.
