A lot of moisture is stripped from our hands when we wash it with soap. And while hand creams and lotions are great, sometimes they're simply not enough. I really love a rich hand cream, and I have several kinds at the office and in my handbag. By my bedside, however, I have O'Keeffe's Working Hands Hand Cream! To say it's a miracle hand cream is an understatement.
What is this stuff!?
Well, to simply put... the Working Hands hand cream is ideally for people who use their hands a lot (gardeners, carpenters, etc), or people who are prone to dry, chapped and/or cracked skin. The main ingredient in this cream is an ultra concentrated blend of glycerin which is a humectant that draws water to our skin to keep it moisturized and healthy. The awesome thing about this cream is that it actually helps the skin to retain the moisture even after washing your hands hours later.
Personally, I've had incredible results with this cream. Since I have really dry hands, I apply a bit at night and don't touch this stuff during the day. It's highly concentrated and a little goes a loooooong way. When applied, it has a "wet" feeling then it goes away. It's not greasy or filmy in any way (given you use only a teeny bit!). My hands felt really soft in the mornings and throughout the day when I would wash them, it still felt really soft. There wasn't the usual tight feeling that I normally felt.
Their packaging is quite simple - in a tub with a twist cap. It's perfectly unisex.
This cream is also 100% odorless. This cream is colorless, and odorless. You absolutely cannot detect a scent even if you tried. The texture is interesting. When you scoop it out, it's a bit flaky but that's only because of how concentrated the water and glycerin ingredients are.
The night before and the morning after! Drastic difference!
My hands feel insanely nourished!
This hand cream is really a miracle cream. And since you only need so little to work through the parched skin, it's really a nice alternative for an overnight hand treatment. I love it a lot, truly. I honestly can't imagine not having this next to my bedside.
You can buy this easily too! It's available on Amazon, for $6.98. Each tub contains 3.4 ounces of product. That's a LOT considering you only need a small bit each time. I'd say it's bargain priced for a high quality product!
Have you tried any products from O'Keeffe's?
