OKeeffes Working Hands Cream, The Next Big Alternative to Working Gloves
Long dry winters have always left my hands in very bad shape, and it gets worse if you are working around the house, especially when you have the habit of frequently washing your hands.
I have had this painful problem with my dry cracked cuticles, the skin around the fingertips would peel leading to bleeding. Taking anything out of my pocket would be a painful experience as the exposed skin would rub against the pocket. Well, all of that changed dramatically when I started using OKeeffes Working Hands Cream.
Within the first application I could visibly see a dramatic improvement in the way my skin looked and felt, no kidding!
What makes OKeeffes Working Hands Cream really effective?
I did some research, on what makes this cream so unique and found that the key ingredients in this cream work together to promote skin hydration and healing. Glycerin helps seals the moisture in the skin making it supple and smooth and Allantoin which is a non-toxic chemical makes the skin smooth and also promotes skin regeneration. This is a good thing, especially when you have extreme dry hands and bleeding at your finger tips.
OKeeffes Working Hands Cream is non-greasy and is easily absorbed which enables me to use it at any time of the day.
My wife who has been using it, maintains that it has reduced her manicure visits to the salon.
The cream itself is well packaged in a small container so it is easy to carry around in your bag. I was initially concerned by the small size of the jar, but it only takes a little bit of the stuff for you both your hands, so it can easily last more than a year.
I have also used Burts Beeswax Hand Salve in the past and here are the main differences between the two products
- Burts Beeswax only seals in moisture, Okeefe’s draws moisture to your hands and seals it in.
- Beeswax makes your hands extremely shiny, greasy and slippery, but it has more moisturizing power, it is probably best for night use before going to bed
- Beeswax claims to be 100% natural and in terms of odor it has the smell of ointment
- Okeefe’s is a little sticky, but non-greasy and it is odorless. You will notice a big difference in the very first application. So in my opinion, it is the best day cream.
