Comparing it to Chamois Butt'r Original it appears to provide similar performance but adds a bit of tingling and a very noticeable minty smell. - Not so sure if I need this aroma omitting from my bibs during and post ride prior to getting washed.
Typically purchase 4 jars at a time and this past time did the same and there doesnï¿½t seem to be as much ï¿½tingleï¿½ in it and itï¿½s not as thick and smooth. The jars received have a black lid instead of the old white curved lid. Not sure if this is a supply chain issue but I do prefer the old formula.
I like it! Have used it every ride for a couple months now. It's tingly, more so than others I've tried (DZ Nuts, MucOff Luxury, Chamois Butt'r (OG non-Eurostyle - ranked from least to most tingly). I like it for riding - but it's too tingly to use off the bike to treat/prevent sores (I've done this successfully with the other creams). It's also wayyyy too minty smelling to put on when not cycling and being in public - you will smell like a pack of trident - but this was not it's intended use. It does its job on the bike, though. I like that it's 100% vegan and seems healthier l than some other creams (MucOff was a previous fave until I realized that it has petrolatum and I wasn't sure I should be putting that on my undercarriage with such regularity). The cooling has been nice in the summer and I haven't gotten any saddle sores. I've been using it in tandem with Docs Skincare Natural Saddle Ointment if I start to feel any irritation after a long ride and that seems to be working pretty well. It definitely washes off clean too. Longevity seems ok, but maybe a tad less than the other creams I've tried - but longevity's a tricky thing to really judge in the middle of a hard sweaty ride lol. I'd probably buy it again but it's not like, life-changing or anything, so I'd probably also try another cream when this runs out (which won't be for a while at the rate it's lasting now), depending on what's available.
I've been using the No Tingle formula for a few weeks now, in the hot humid temperatures, for 1-4 hours of riding and it works great, for me. I don't detect menthol when applying or riding (that's a good thing). I will definitely buy Enzo's No Tingle again. I've tried several other brands and never been impressed enough to buy a second tube/jar/stick.
So I've been using this stuff for about a month and a half now and really like it. It's pretty thick and a little goes a long way. My last jar of another brand I really liked also but was a little thinner viscosity and I went through it pretty fast. Seems some people either love or hate the peppermintmenthol tingle, I don't mind it but I don't need it either, my last one didn't have it and I was fine without it. A great buy when I got it on sale so I'd definitely recommend it.
Enzos is one of my go-to chamois creams, so I stock up when it's on sale. It's more viscous than some other brands and holds up well on rides in the 3-4 hour range. The ingredients reportedly have natural anti-microbial properties, which is useful for preventing skin infections on your undercarriage. I also like the cream's minty scent.
I've used Assos chamois cream for years, then tried this on a recommendation. For me, they have similar levels of protection, and there is more of this product at a lower price point. I recently completed a 102 mile, 9 hour, 11,480 ft. of climbing graveldirt ride using Button Hole, and my nether regions came out fine.
I've used Assos and Doc's, both very good. However, over the last year, I switch to Enzos ButtonHole Chamois Cream for two reasons, 1) a tad cheaper and 2) it works. I rub a light coating on my chamois never having any friction issues in my 3/4 hr rides. Would definitely recommend.
There are plenty of products to help with all day events or if you have sensitivity. This Enzos product has a bit of cooling effect and that works great for me (your results may vary ;^). Great product for the what it is designed for!
Over 30 years of riding and 20 racing, I think I've tried almost every brand of chamois cream. For years, my favorite was Assos, but I've found I like this better because better value (more for the $), slightly easier to spread and a positive bit of tingle in the private parts.
