Got Dry hands? Working hands cream

Hello everyone! This is an extra post that I have been meaning to do for a while now. Now that it is winter time dry skin can be a big problem for many of us. Especially when having dry hands can be a pain, literally. When it is extra cold outside it seems like even all the extra lotion you have been using is still not working. 
I was recently looking up some lotions and creams online, specifically for brands that are good for extra dry skin. Then I stumbled across this cream called O'Keeffe's Working hands cream. After looking up what the product does and some reviews, I decided to pick this product up.  

When the weather gets very cold, even the products that I have mentioned in my hand and cuticle post, the Yes to Carrots body butter on it's own still does not seem to help when it normally does. My knuckles get very dry, and crackled, and just hurt very bad. The working hands cream I actually picked up for my finance' to try on his dry hands, his hands get really dry and cracked. But once it got really cold out and my knuckles started to dry out again I figured I would give this hand cream a try.

       The O'Keeffe's Working hands cream in the package, kind of. 
I opened this before I thought of doing a review on it.  

The back of the packaging with the directions

This hand cream according to the directions on the back says to apply this sparingly, that a little goes a long way. To apply this cream throughout the day, mainly after washing hands or bathing, and the best time to use this would be at bed time when it is most effective. Also if your hands are very dry it is best to use this before bed and three times daily for about a week. 

This hand cream works wonders! It really does what it says for very dry hands. After using this for only a few days it helped my dry knuckles to no long be dry and cracked. I use this with the Yes to Carrots body butter,and Burt's Bees Lemon butter cuticle cream at night. In the morning for the first few weeks I would still use the Yes to carrots body butter then through out the day I would put the Working Hands cream on my knuckles. Now I just use the Yes to Carrots body butter in the morning. Even though my hands seem to be better I still put this hand cream on to help that problem from coming back.

O'Keeffe's working hands cream
          The O'Keedde's Working Hands cream is a very thick, non- greasy, and orderless. That really works on dry, crakced, and splitting  hands!

I highly recommend this product if you need something a little extra for your dry hands. 

Yes To and Burt's Bees
I still use the Yes to Carrots Body butter in the morning. At night I use the Yes to Carrots Body butter, Burt's Bee Cuticle cream, and the O'Keeffe's Working hands cream just on my knuckles and very dry spots. Then before I do my nails I use the Yes to Coconut body scrub. I know this may seem like a lot, but this is just what I use to try and keep my hands looking nice. I will most likely just be using the Working hands cream in the winter time,when my hands tend to dry out the most.

You can find this at any drug store like CVS pharmacy, Rite Aid, and Walgreen's.

I found this at Rite Aid for about $6.49. My fiance and I have both been using this for a few months and their is still a lot of product left. 

Hope all of you found this post helpful and hope all of you check out the usually M.M.M Friday post about nail design!
