hand lotion for nurses

A Healing Lotion for the Healers

A nurse’s hands deserve the best treatment, as they undergo a great deal in one single shift. As a nurse, you are likely to use hand sanitizers and wash your hands many times in just one shift.

This will inevitably lead to dry, cracked and often irritated skin which can be further irritated with the frequent use of latex gloves. Broken and even bleeding skin is quite common and therefore a hand lotion for nurses is a must-have.

Although there are countless popular hand lotions for nurses on the market that may offer temporary relief with some moisturizing benefits, a shielding lotion is what many dermatologists recommend to remedy dry cracked hands.

Pros: It moisturizes without being greasy.

Real Testimonials from Nurses

Testimonial from Dani Mirzo

"As a student clinician, I wash my hands multiple times per patient encounter. I try my best to keep my hands as clean as possible when working with a patient, and as a result, my skin has suffered tremendously, especially during this winter season. ☃️ everything changed once Gloves in a Bottle reached out to me to try their product and have blessed my hands with their magic lotion... now my hands are as soft as a 👶🏻’s butt without me having to sacrifice proper hygiene in the exam room! Unlike the typical moisturizers and creams, Gloves in a Bottle is formulated to act like a shield that bonds with the outermost layer of your skin to not only moisturize it, but to also protect it from further damage. Another plus is you can freely wash your hands without the lotion coming off or leaving a weird greasy sensation on your skin, meaning less applications! I’ve been using it on my hands for almost a month now and it’s definitely made a HUGE improvement on my skin."

Covid Pandemic and Washing Hands

"Hi! I’m a nurse in a busy ICU at a northern NJ hospital. Obviously with the Covid pandemic going on, I wash my hands countless times an hour (I couldn’t even imagine how many times a day that equals!). My hands have recently been at the point where they are raw and bleeding by the end of the day. My mother bought my husband (who is also a nurse at my hospital) and I a bottle of your hand lotion and i just wanted to let you know how HUGE of a difference it has made! Not only do my hands not bleed anymore, but they’re very soft (even at the end of a 12 hour shift)! Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your product, especially at a time like this! Stay safe and healthy!"

So Pleased with this Product

“I wanted to contact you to inform you of how pleased I am with the protection “Gloves In A Bottle” lotion has provided.

I am a nurse of 26 years and have used NUMEROUS products for my very sensitive dry skin and “Gloves In A Bottle” by far has helped my hands through the multiple washings, dry winter periods, cracked fingers, dry skin etc. the best.

I am certainly good advertisement for your product and have recommended it to numerous others. You need to think about marketing it to medical professionals. If not for my friend working for a dermatologist I would not have heard about it.”

This Product Worked Like Magic

“I use powder gloves and they irritate my skin so bad! Doctor gave Gloves In A Bottle to me and said – here, try this. My hands were all cracked and bleeding on the knuckles. And this product worked like a magic for me!:) We will also give it to our patients who have similar problems :)”

- Dee Williams

A Very Special Product

“You have a very special lotion. I want to thank you for this product. Being a nurse for 36 years, you can imagine how rough my hands were. As the cooler weather starts my hands also are very dry and cracked.

I used this product for 2 days and the little open areas were healed. In 5 days the roughness was gone. Now I have people tell me how soft my hands are. This is the first time in many years that this has happened.

My daughter wanted to try some too, the doctor had given her medication for her red and scaly hands. The med was oz for about $10.00. It did not help at all. After using GIAB her hands look and feel wonderful. The redness and scales are gone. I’ve told my family and friends in OH, LA and GA, they all want to try it.

The stores where I bought GIAB was out of it, so I called the 800 number on the bottle. A very nice young man took my order and explained where I could purchase the product. I also spoke to Debbie in marketing, she was kind enough to answer my questions. You have a very nice staff working for you. I just wanted to thank you for helping my hands feel better and look wonderful. God bless you all.

My husband Jerry uses it too, it has made a significant improvement in his hard-working hands.”

The Best Lotion Out There

“This is by far the best lotion out there. Especially if you live in a dry climate. I have very sensitive skin and this is the only lotion I can use to help with my skin. I use this after the bath on my knees, elbows, feet and hands.

I am a home stay mom of 4, so I am constantly washing dishes, packing lunches, I love gardening, so my skin is always exposed to something.

Last winter I developed really dry patches on my elbows and nothing seemed to work, it was painful and uncomfortable. I decided to go to a dermatologist and he gave me a prescription for some eczema cream, but right when I was ready to leave a nurse slipped into my hand a sample of Gloves In A Bottle. I never heard about it before, so I went home and googled it. I really liked the whole idea of how the product works and because of other patients reviews I decided to give it a go.

The product started working almost immediately, on the 3d day my elbows started to look better, and the painful feeling went away. This Shielding Lotion was creating a barrier and allowing my skin to heal. The sample lasted 4 applications, so I had to buy a bottle, but I was happy because I was seeing great results.

I bought another bottle for my mom, who has horrible dry skin due to her medications and a bottle for my hubby, his hands crack terribly during winter month.

I keep a bottle of Gloves In A Bottle in my bathroom and a small 2oz bottle in my purse, I honestly think this is the best skin protectant you can find out there.”

RN Supervisor, 16 Hour Shifts

"This product is remarkable. I had resorted to Crazy Gluing my cracked fingertips together. All of the advice for fixing cracked skin on the hands is to avoid washing them. Try doing that as a nurse! One application of this immediately removes every snag and dead bit of skin that sticks up and tears. Within three days my hands were almost healed. I have been through Working Hands, Eucerin, Phytoplex – you name it, I’ve tried it. I will never be without this product. I have a pump bottle for my nursing bag and will buy another for home use, as well as a small one for my purse."

No Sticky After Feel

“I am a nurse and washing my hands all the time. I was developing cracked skin and this stuff has helped tremendously! I am picky about what I put on my hands, and this stuff is great because once it dries there is no sticky or greasy feeling left on my hands.”

- Christina Burrage
