What the Heck is Anti Monkey Butt Powder?
As I type this, I am breaking a major rule when it comes to footwear: I am wearing sneakers without socks. But before you plug your nose in anticipation of the smell, just know that I have taken necessary precautions to ensure that no one gets a whiff of my sockless-sneaker-feet. I have applied a new anti friction powder to the inside of my shoes.
Yes. An anti friction powder. And what is the name of the said powder, you ask? Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder.
I’ll admit I was skeptical at first. Although the name is catchy and the bottle is too cute for words (I love the strand of pearls around Ms. Monkey’s neck and her hot pink fingernails and toenails), I thought, ‘it is probably no different than any other moisture-absorbing powder on the market.’ But it is different.
The powder has a much nicer smell than normal powders, almost reminding me of that fresh cleaned laundry smell. It is also extremely silky and smooth.
Maybe the secret is in the ingredients list. It boasts a “patented microparticle polymer” and “calamine powder.” Now, I am no moisture-absorbing-powder-expert, but I do not recall seeing the above mentioned ingredients in similar powders. This may call for a little research.
But not to worry boys. Don’t feel left out. If you tend to get extra sweaty during a hardcore workout, fear not; Anti Monkey Butt Powder is available for men (and babies), too.
According to the label on the Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder bottle, it “minimizes the frictional discomfort that women often experience when using exercise equipment, running, driving, cycling or just walking.” The label states that it can be used to absorb sweat and cool areas prone to rubbing such as the inner thighs. Although I wanted to test this theory for myself, I am not a person who sweats a lot when I work out. I had to consult other sources.
My husband works out almost everyday in our home gym and when he is finished, he is drenched in sweat. His face, armpits, back, legs: soaked. So, naturally, I consulted him to be my guinea pig and try the powder out for its intended purpose. He applied the powder prior to working out and when he completed his routine, I asked him what he thought.
“It’s nice,” he said. Being a man of few words, I had to press him for a bit more information. “I didn’t feel as sweaty and it smells good.”
I knew I had extracted all the information from him that I was going to get. But I also knew that Anti Monkey Butt Powder most be pretty good for him to say that much about it.
Overall, I am impressed. I am athletic and have various pieces of sports equipment (softball gloves, workout gloves, shoes, bags) and I will be applying Anti Monkey Butt Powder to it all.
And, like the bottle states, “indoors or outdoors, work or play, or on occasions when you’re on your butt all day. Don’t let your buns get red. Use Anti Monkey Butt Powder instead.”
