Starting in October, and really not ending until maybe June, Colorado is dry, dry, dry. The upside to a dry climate winter is that the cold isn't as cold as it is in a humid climate, but the downside is that hands turn to sandpaper...until NOW!
I purchased this bottle of glycerine on a whim, I am a self admitted beauty junkie; yes, "I have an addiction Sir". It cost less than $6 for 16 oz. and it is worth millions! I tried it on my feetsies about a month ago. It is not oily, more like a little sticky, so after applying I slept in socks. Aside from the super softening and moisturizing benis, glycerine is water soluble, so it washes off easily.
This week I have been battling dry hands and for extra irritation, a cracked thumb. I decided last night to try the glycerine on my hands. I say try because my hands were crazy dry and I wasn't sure if the glycerine would be powerful enough. Ha, I feel like such a fool for doubting its super powers. A dime size amount of glycerine + spa gloves worn overnight =
sandpaper hands that are now able to caress a Pashmina without so much as a tug!
