This crème has a lot of natural plant oils so when you first apply your skin will feel a little oily. The oil will be absorbed into the skin, the speed of this will depend on how dry your skin is. Using the crème before you go to bed is a good idea as it gives the crème all night to be absorbed. Using cotton socks or gloves overnight is recommended for maximum moisturizing. Use Very Hardworkers Handcreme to repair VERY damaged skin. Including skin that is suffering nicks and splits.Key Benefits

This product is amazing! Restores moisture way better than anything else I�ve tried. I wear silicon gloves a lot with my work, and my hands really dry out. My sister has her hands in water much of the day. She was so happy when I gave her some! It really does work.
I have used many creams over the years for my hands while I am gardening and dairy farming and this is the best. I can not recommend it highly enough.Regards Alex
