Boules Lounges Chamois Butter


What is it? A super-artisanal bespoke preparation of chamois butter. Organic, vegan, all-natural.

I received all three strengths of BL and debuted the medium-tingle yesterday.

Acquisition: shit was free and came to my house, so that's about as good as it gets.

Packaging: great logo in a cool silver tin with a matte finish. Doesn't look likely to leak.

Application: I suppose I can explain this, but the video is really what you'll want to check out. The BL is a smooth paste and goes on easily without a lot of mess. It smells like a honey/mint combo with a very subtle savory (rosemary?) back. The feel is pretty similar to Assos' old formulation. My taint was smooth without being slick and there was no goopy feel like I get with almost any other chamois cream.

Shakedown: I rode 80+ miles in 90+ Georgia heat (NOBR AKES SW8F IXIE). I should have killed that BL, but it held up like NUTS. I can't imagine harsher taint conditions, and the BL exceeded all my expectations. The whole ride including a million stops and two meals took all day and there was no decrease in protection until the last 2 miles or so, when I noticed the first friction of the day. I was dripping in sweat by then and only noticed because I had been so comfy all day prior to the run-up to home. The tingle wasn't there for me, but I'll try the full Euro version tomorrow.

Removal: washed off easy!

I can't wait for the embro

Thumbs up! I've been worried that even the full Euro might not be enough for you's guys taints. If that is the case, we can up it some more so let me know if it is.

We had a discussion at the Bear's birthday party about how we all (girls included) wanted the tingle.

Then there was the one "cyclist" who was flabbergasted as to why anyone would want chamois cream. It's amusing, because these people always have a look of mild disgust on their faces when they think of lubing their business and in this particular group, everyone one else was very enthusiastic about it.

Nice review! I am stoked for this stuff!

Just an FYI, the version you guys all got isn't vegan, but there is a vegan version in the works, I am told.

Used tin 2 today. Held up well, however it didn't seem to have any more Vladamir Karpets than tin 3. It did soak through my bibs so that there was a noticeable greasy area on my saddle.

Hm. I think the heat may have affected this stuff quit a bit. Also, did 3 not produce the greasy saddle effect?

It might have, but I didn't really look. I happened to look at my saddle for some reason today. And when I got home I could smell the mint coming off it.

used ricco for 100k this weekend. i must have hit a pocket of tingle because this was the first time where it went like:
application - felt tingle
ride
espresso
ride
stop light - felt tingle

audibly said "wow, feels good man"
riding partner looked at me funny, had to explain what boules longues meant. also, bud light lime discussion.

Yo bros sorry for the delay. Life's been comin on pretty hard and fast the last month or so. There's a somewhat stronger version of the stuff I sent to D2R2 ready to go. It's not as tingly as some of y'all want, but I'll send some out while I'm making new batches and figuring out how tingly I can make it without causing an adverse reaction.

I finally used my BL Lime and it was great. That teensy little package won't last more than a few applications though. How do I order more? You planning on larger tins?

sorry this review took so long, i was mia most of the summer and then i had a rash that took a while to clear up and i didn't want to use up my samples before i could give a real review. sensitive types may not want to read on... so i had this rash along either side of my boules from hot/sweaty summer riding that took a while to clear up. the best i can say about your product is how the #2 tingly was excellent at eliminating any itching and discomfort while i was riding. the cooling effect was excellent and i'm guessing whatever else was in there was great for the irritated skin.

i should probably backtrack and say that i normally use plain "chamois buttr" brand, in fact that's probably the only thing i've used besides your product. compared to that, your product is far superior. you can use less of it due to its superior lubrication properties and staying power. this is true of both #2/#3, but it is easier to compare the 3 to chamois buttr as neither have tingle. having said that, the tingle is excellent and i love the smell. the #2 did finally separate as it sat around for a while this summer and saw some warm temperatures a couple of times - i'll still use it in minute amounts with some #3 on top though.

if you get a website up and want to display some customer reviews let me know and i'll try to put together something more quotable.
