Active came into my life at exactly the right moment. I am a surf instructor who had recently been diagnosed with Lymes disease, and was beginning my treatment with extremely sun-sensitive antibiotics. I would get into the car after a long day in the sun with a swollen face and cracked, bleeding lips. A few sprays of my blue bottle of Active on my face would make the drive home bearable, and by the time I got to bed I was able to fall asleep without pain and puffiness.

The Active gel was my tool of choice as a surf instructor this summer, as every day girls were coming up to me with a new rash or scrape. Montauk is rocky and running an all girls camp I realized what a problem rashes were for girl surfers (we don’t have boardshorts to protect us!). The BLDG gel caused no screams nor tears upon application like most antiseptics and got my girls back in the water if not right away (confidence is a beautiful thing), within a day. Montauk Boardriders Girls Only Surf Camp thanks you!
