This is Daysha and she is on a mission to live her best thick-thigh life and I fully support it.

But she's always had a problem with chub rub, so she decided to test out some products that could offer some relief. I feel ya, girl!

After gathering a few items, it was time to test the products. First, she tried putting on Degree Motionsense deodorant (yes, deodorant) between her thighs before taking a hike — literally.

The results? The deodorant smelled bomb and it was definitely silky and smooth, but you need to reapply after about 45 minutes or so.

And while she said it wouldn't be her go-to product to prevent chub rub, it's definitely a good last resort hack.

Especially since a lot of people carry deodorant with them anyway.

Next Daysha tried a Gold Bond Friction Defense Stick. It was recommended by a fan and she was willing to give anything a shot.

While applying, she noticed that although the stick was smooth, it kind of went on a bit thick.

She put the Friction Stick to the test with a dance class but something about it irritated the hell out of the skin between her thighs, so she decided it wasn't for her.

But she totally gets why it could work for others.

Let's mosey on down to product number three, which probably ended up being her favorite from the group: the Lush Cosmetics Silky Underwear Dusting Powder, ya'll.

Let's just say this powder made Daysha re-evaluate her relationship with powder. Nuff' said.

She looooved the smell, and said it went on super silky on her inner thighs, but doesn't recommend using it before any type of physical activity because the sweat will just soak it all up.

Which brings us to the last anti-chafing product Daysha tested. It was a pair of Thigh Society Anti-Chafing Slip Shorts, created specifically to prevent inner thigh chafing.

She was skeptical because she's tried using shorts before and sometimes they want your body to mold to the shorts instead of the other way around. As if!

After walking around all day on the Santa Monica Pier, Daysha said she loved these anti-chafing slip shorts!

Thigh Society has done it! These shorts were perfect because the material was super soft, they're breathable, and they mold to your thighs. Amen to that!

Now if we could only combine the lush powder smell with the anti-chafing silk shorts, it would be PERFECTION!
