Dry, Cracked Hands??

My hands are a wreck this time of year. They are always so dry and cracked and chapped that they sometimes hurt, especially my cuticles which are always ghastly. I even pull on my hang nails and make them bleed they are so chapped. It doesn’t help that they are always in water, either wiping up messes, washing them after changing diapers, or washing them to keep from spreading germs. I’ve been trying to find a lotion that feels good on, isn’t too greasy or heavy, but can save my poor hands from winter’s abuses. Well I have to say I have been very impressed with Vaseline’s new Clinical Therapy lotion. It feels so light on but yet does a great job of moisturizing my alligator hands. I even like the smell, it isn’t too perfumey, but still has a light scent that I really like.
I remember Vaseline when I was a little girl. My mother always had that tell tale yellow bottle of Vaseline on the bathroom vanity. Even my dad used it on his dry, cracked hands in the winter time. He worked outside with his hands and often couldn’t use gloves so he really had some badly abused hands. He swore by Vaseline Intensive Care lotion.


Fast forward to 2009 and where Vaseline is now. I can honestly say that there are so many lotions and moisturizing creams on the market that Vaseline isn’t always what I think of when I think of lotion. But now that I have discovered Vaseline Clinical Therapy lotion, I can honestly say that my hands have felt much softer and my hang nails are definitely getting much better. I keep a bottle by my computer, by the kitchen sink and by my bed so I can slather some on my hands right before I go to bed.

My hands couldn’t be happier! Vaseline – keeping skin amazing!®

Sometimes it isn't enough for me. For bad times, (always washing damage and winter here too), I put Eucerin...having a brain cloud at the moment, but not the lotion, the thick cream in a jar. I don't put it on my palms and rub it on the upper/knuckles area for the night - fixes me up in a snap.

I have a great cake of olive oil and beeswax by my sink that really coats those cracked hands. It is a winter problem, isn't it?

I'll have to try it. My daughter has excema and I'm forever looking for some really good lotion. thanks for the review!

I think that I might have to try this. My hands are always dry and cracked.

I may have to try it out. My body lotion of choice is Aveeno, but sometimes you need something extra strong for your hands!

my hands are terrible too. Thanks for the suggestion. I think I just wash my hands so much in a day plus with the cold weather they crack and even bleed sometimes. no fun!!

Thispregnancy is drying me out so bad. I can't even drink enough water to keep my body hydrated it seems, so I will totally have to give this a try.

Great review! Sometimes, the stuff that has been around forever really is the best huh?
