I have never had success with moleskin without using benzoin as an adhesive. Benzoin is not on the packing list for sfas. I tried nu-skin to see if that would work and it did not. Any tips?

Your moleskin is probably one of three things:
1. Cheap
2. Old
3. Improperly applied

Any one, or combination, of these things will cause it to fail. Since you are also having issue with other products, I would look to your technique first.

You know looking through the posts I noticed one thing. No one mentioned the main reasons we used it many years ago and that was to cause your thick wool socks to adhere to your feet to alleviate friction blisters. That's what worked pretty well for us anyway. You had to peel your socks off every time you changed them. It was like a ritual and the instructors made damn sure you put it on your feet in the morning.

Yup! Our football spikes never fit very well, blisters were assured if we did not use benzoin.
