Sorry that my blog’s basically become an ode to beauty products lately (hazard of the new job, I think)
Speaking as a person with chronically cracked and dry skin around my fingertips, this product? Is the best shit. It sinks in immediately but somehow still moisturizes deeply I don’t ahsjhskjhkjf???
It’s life-changing. I’m also going to toss it up as something I recommend for people who struggle with chronic dermatillomania (with a particular focus on the hands) because it moisturizes and adds a slightly slippery (but not greasy, which is atypical for hand moisturizers in my experience) texture to the dried skin that you might otherwise be tempted to peel, which makes the peeling process itself difficult and unsatisfying. I’ve been putting it on whenever I get anxious and feel tempted to peel, and it’s been more handy (pun intended) than putting on a pair of mittens or plastic surgical gloves. It does the same things, but doesn’t add the extra annoyances of fabric gloves making it unwieldy to open doors and use electronic touch devices, or the sweatiness of plastic and the uncomfortable drying feeling that the talcum in plastic gloves can leave you with.
It’s too bad they don’t make this product for the face, because it’d be great for the people in my life who chronically pick their faces.
