I love a good pair of slingback sandals, but heel blisters keep me from wearing my favorite shoes because nothing ruins a sexy pair of heels faster than a boring (not to mention, unsightly) bandage. The Julep Doublestep Friction Stick ($22) keeps sore feet at bay when you plan to do a lot of walking in your flats or heels (i.e. music festivals and the farmers market). Even though it goes on clear, shea butter immediately eradicates ashy feet, while talc creates a powder-like finish so your feet don't slip and slide. The stick also works well around cuticles to refresh your pedicure. Chili pepper oil gives the product a cooling sensation; the scent is minty yet not overpowering. No more peeling, red, scabbed heels means I'll be headed to the sandal section stat.
