Unfortunately, during the Winter months, our skin is battered with many factors; chilly climates, forceful winds and dehydration from blasting the heaters too high at home. This can leave your skin looking and feeling very dull, and in need of a moisture boost. I find my hands are the driest during the winter season, and I'm proud to announce I've found a product that has helped hydrate my skin and protect my hands throughout the day.
"Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that rapidly absorbs into, and bonds with, the outer layer of skin creating a protective layer while retaining the natural moisture from within. This makes it the perfect dry skin care product."
Most hand creams I've tried usually tend to focus on moisturising the skin, however, Gloves In A Bottle also focuses on protecting your hands from getting dry and chapped in the first place. Basically, it claims to let in the 'good stuff' and stop the 'bad stuff' from sinking into the skin by providing a protective layer around the skin (for all the technical bits, visit www.glovesinabottle.com).
The consistency of the cream is surprisingly quite runny and has a glossy sheen to it, making your skin look both silky and moisturised. I was a little concerned the lotion would wear off after washing; as daily tasks such as dunking hands into cleaning products or even washing up the dishes can have a damaging effect of the skin. Amazingly, it doesn't wash off! I found there was no need to worry about reapplying the product too often either, as it naturally wears off when your skin cells exfoliate (this happens around every 4 hours).
Gloves In A Bottle is also greaseless. The main reason I tend to steer away from applying lotions is because I'm very lazy when it comes to waiting for products to dry, I want a lotion that is quick drying and allows me to carry on with my day almost instantly without having to flap my hands dry for ages. This product really does dry almost instantly and doesn't leave that horrible greasy feeling; my hands felt moisturised and silky without feeling slimy.
I don't have severely dry or irritated skin, but after scanning through reviews on the internet, it seems apparent this product has worked wonders for those with skin conditions such as dermatitis or eczema. It's not surprising the product has had a benefit on sensitive skin as it is fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and non-toxic which means it is gentle on the skin without irritation. Not only is it great for treating dry hands, it can be used all over the body, so there's only one product you need to treat all areas!
Gloves In A Bottle is available in a handy 60ML travel size as well as a large 240ML size with a pump dispenser. Prices vary depending on the retailer, but the lotion is very affordable for wonderful results. Gloves In A Bottle is widely available at high street Pharmacies as well as independent Pharmacies too.
