I bought this in hope it would stop me sliding on slick studio floors but what I got was a jar of inconsistent jelly. Half was sticky, doesn't work on pointe shoes. Had to apply it twice in a two hour period. It's messy and doesn't spread well.
When I ordered this a week ago, it was a stick. I've used the stick before, and I wanted it because it was in a stick and I didn't have to get the rosin all over my hands. It's not a stick anymore. It's a tube that you have to put your hands in and get rosin all over.
When I first opened the stick, the rosin was crushed and falling out of the tube, however when I put it on my shoe it still prevented me from falling. Beware your hands get really sticky because you have to personally get the crushed rosin and then rub it on the shoe you are using.
