Since July, we’ve been using some products from SBR Sports, a manufacturer of body care products designed to meet the needs of triathletes. Today, we’re going to finish our review of the TriSwim Lotion. This lotion is part of a product line that includes shampoo and conditioner and bodywash. SBR also manufactures TriSlide, a body lubricant for triathletes.
TriSwim Lotion is available directly from SBR for $13.20 or as part of a travel kit for $21.30. You can also request a free sample from SBR. If you do, please note that you heard about them from FitEgg.com.
Background on SBR Sports:
SBR Sports was established in 2003 by Karen Allard. Karen is a triathlete and USAT Certified Coach. Through her training, she became aware of the damage chlorine and other chemicals cause to athletes’s hair and skin. After using many available products, Karen decided to start her own line of products to assist athletes facing the same issues.
Background on TriSwim Lotion:
As with their other products, TriSwim Lotion is designed to help your body recover from the harsh chemical treatment it receives during your swim training. Chlorine is a very tough chemical that strips moisture and fullness from your hair and skin. TriSwim Lotion is designed to hydrate your skin while neutralizing the odor of the pool. As with their other products, this lotion contains aloe, a natural ingredient that helps moisturize and protect your skin. TriSwim has the same light citrus smell that you find in the other TriSwim products.
Testing TriSwim Lotion:
As we mentioned in the first review, the first thing we noticed about this product is that it’s appealing to men and women. The scent is a light citrus smell that disappears within an hour or two of application. The lotion goes on smoothly and is readily absorbed by your sking, especially just out of a hot shower.
Our testers noticed that the lotion doesn’t leave an oily or greasy residue and one tester commented on the lack of sticky feeling after application, as many other products do.
Final Impressions of TriSwim Lotion:
After using our entire sample tube with two testers, we feel that this product works as advertised. The TriSwim Lotion provides moisture to dry skin, especially if used after exposure to chlorine. TriSwim Lotion also relieves or eliminates itching due to dry skin and restores elasticity to your skin. The light scent eliminates chlorine odors and replaces them with a slight citrus scent, before disappearing a few hours after application.
As we mentioned in the first review, if you have seriously dry skin, this might not be the best lotion. If you’re used to using a serious lotion, like Eucerin, this lotion might not provide enough moisture.
TriSwim Lotion is good for occasional use to combat dry skin caused by wind, sun, and chlorine exposure. We are pleased with the performance and hope that you will give this lotion a chance if you’re looking for a new product to help with dry skin and other skin discomfort caused by triathlon training.
