These Working Hands

Occasionally a product comes along that surprises me. There are a few things in life that strike me as, "totally worth the price". My prescription sunglasses for example, awesome. I love them. Totally worth the money I spent on them. It's really nice though when that happens and the sticker price doesn't require you to take out a loan.

I bought O'Keefe's Working Hands at the drug store because it was an obviously un-girly package and Chief's hands also get really chapped and I thought he would be willing to use this. (He is)

Sometimes I am reminded that crochet is an art that takes its toll on the hands. Working with fiber and paper seems to dry out my hands. Add in being a mom and constantly washing my hands, cooking, cleaning, washing my hands again... many times lotion burns.

I was surprised at how much I love Working Hands Lotion. It's unscented, it didn't burn my hands, it absorbed quickly and the NEXT day, after using it one time, I still felt like it had made an improvement in my skin.

*I was not paid for this endorsement, I just really liked it and thought you might like it too.

Too funny of a coincidence. I recently found out about Working Hands from a friend who is a barista at a locally owned coffee shop. I hadn't tried it myself, but I too have found that working with yarn (crochet) and paper (origami) dries out my already dry hands. Now that I've seen this recommended from two completely independent sources, I will have to give it a try!

I've got the same problem, dry hands that are rough sometimes.
I hate it when the yarn seems to stick on my hands then.
Good idea, this product, I'm trying something comparable these days.
No idea if I can get this product overhere in Belgium.
Must search google on that ;-)
Take care, Sigrid
