Emma Joy is a marathon runner, wine lover, coffee drinker, free thinker, bar manager and Fitness, Fashion & Health Blogger. (writing as Lipstick and Trainers )

Based in Manchester, Emma had developed some blisters just as she was tapering for the Paris Marathon.  "I wore Arma skin the day before (to test comfort) and for the marathon itself to stop the blisters I had already, getting any worse, and they most definitely helped. I didn't really get any new marks, just trouble from the remaining blisters (which had nothing to do with the socks) but they kept me clear and protected!"

This was Emma's first major outing with ArmaSkin and we were pleased to get the thumbs up as well as having a chance to show our ability to fashionably colour coordinate with Emma in Paris.
