Hi, my name is Miss Rantypants and I am a lotion addict. With three kids and no dishwasher, my hands are constantly in hot water. Since two of those kids are boys, I am also constantly washing my hands since, lets face it, boys are disgusting. Between finding skidmarks while sorting laundry and cleaning up after a failed target practice in the bathroom, I wash my hands as much as an OCD sufferer on the weekend. At work, I handle a ton of paperwork which is also drying. To complicate things I also have dyshidrosis. I've tried most lotions that advertise their "super healing properties". They have all fallen short. They are either so scented that they are more drying than healing, so greasy that it makes me want to wash my hands immediately after applying it, or so weak that I need to reapply several times between hand washings.
I was excited to join the BzzCampaign for Neutrogena Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream. I was also skeptical and prepared to be disappointed. The cream is thick like petroleum jelly, which made me nervous that it would be greasy. That wasn't the case at all - although it goes on thick, it absorbs into your hands and doesn't leave them greasy at all. When I started using it, my nails were chipping and the skin around my nails was peeling and bloody. Gross, but I even tried to take a picture of it for a "before & after" shot, but it didn't come out clear enough. I've been using this hand cream exclusively for about a week now and my hands are completely healed! I have a teensy .5oz tube at work and I still have several applications left - you really only do need a little! A sample tube of any other kind of lotion I have tried would have been gone in less than a day. I'm sold! This is now my lotion of choice. It works so well on me that I'm very tempted to try it on my daughter who has severe eczema (the worst case her doctor has ever seen), but she's still too young for me to experiment on. perhaps when she's older I will let her take the unscented version for a test drive of her own.
As part of being a BzzAgent, I received a sample box of Alpha-Bits and coupons. My opinion is my own, and I'm not shy about giving it.
