“I work P/T cleaning up and closing a deli. My hands have been destroyed with the bleach water, continuously washing dishes and exposure to the heat of the fryer and hot case. Rubber gloves are not an option. Both my thumbs and index fingers are so dry and cracked. My right thumb is deeply cracked and when I bump it it hurts so bad it brings tears to my eyes. I use a deep moisturizer when I get home but on my days off my hands and fingers get dryer and so much more tender to the touch. I felt I HAD to get ‘Gloves in a bottle’ as a last resort for comfort.
My first use, I washed, moisturized then added ‘Gloves in a bottle’ and allowed to dry. I really thought my hands felt kind of greasy and had a shiny look from the ‘Gloves in a bottle’ originally. As I went about my day I realized they just felt moisturized. I am so used to dry hands with crackly patches having the moisture locked in with ‘Gloves in a bottle’ felt awkward. I did my first load of dishes after having it on for 2 hours. I must say my hands felt super weird wet after I was done. An hour later, the backs of my hands aren’t super dry and extremely wrinkly like normal. They feel extremely soft and smooth. I will admit I did dip my right hand into a heavy solution of bleach water, 1 cup bleach 5 cups water, My left thumb and index finger feel a tiny bit dryer than they did before I started but NOTHING like they would have if I would not have used ‘Gloves in a bottle.’ My right thumb and index finger feel a bit drier than the left. I can definitely feel a difference between both hands. At this point I would recommend no heavy bleach solutions. At work we use a cap full to a gallon of water and I am anxious to test the results there. In the meantime, I am going to enjoy ‘Gloves in a bottle’ on my days off and the moist hands I have not felt in a very long time.
The second day my hands feel like they have a great covering on them after having applied it 5 times since receiving ‘Gloves in a bottle.’ I wash my hands about 20 times a day when I am at home they are still moisturized. I have used regular lotion before I reapplied ‘Gloves in a bottle.’ My index fingers are completely moist with no dry patches. Tomorrow, I work and will KNOW how well ‘Gloves in a bottle’ performs by the time I get home. My hands do feel like there is a protective layer covering them with no odor or greasiness. I did apply it further up my arms each time and even my arms are staying very moist.
My third day and true test of ‘Gloves in a bottle’ was my day of work yesterday. The open sore on my thumb is not tender, almost completely closed and healing quite nicely this morning. All dry patches are gone. I am actually quite shocked at the fact it didn’t take long to realized I WILL be purchasing more ‘Gloves in a bottle’ in smaller bottles to put in my purse because it worked so well. I will have to use ‘Gloves in a bottle’ on my breaks because of the fact my hands are in water a great deal while at work. I have faithfully washed, added a moisturizer and allowed it to soak in before applying ‘Gloves in a bottle’ every 4 hours of my working time.
I am COMPLETELY impressed with the immediate results ‘Gloves in a bottle.’ Even my son noticed my hands look 100% better than they did the day the order came in. I really regret that I didn’t have him take pictures of my right thumb before I started using ‘Gloves in a bottle’. I seriously would not believe it if I had not experienced it myself. I really like that it doesn’t take a large amount for a nice layering, it is not thick and greasy and it works on my arms just as well as on my hands…I could not be more impressed or happier!!! “
