Winter = Dry Hands and Brittle Nails

I suppose I should have seen this one coming. I did spend quite a few quality hours outside pulling weeds in coolish temperatures. My hands have been complaining ever since. Every winter my hands go into semi-hibernation and begin to crack, bleed and nails break by just looking at them.

Over the years I have tried just about everything on the market with little or no success in stopping this annual assault on my hands. This year while I was picking up just a few stray items for my upcoming trip(s) I noticed something new and being the sucker that I am for advertising ploys...bought it.

It is (of all things!) Vaseline healthy hand and nail conditioning. That's it no cream, no biotics or botanicals, no salve. I have been using it several times a day for three day. Yes only three days! This stuff is fantastic! I recommend it highly!

Here is what it looks like (it is also relatively inexpensive as well...and you know that warms the cockles of my heart!)

Vaseline has been around for how many years now? Since the last ice age? Since I stopped driving a taxi, tho, I haven't had to use anything on my hands (not that they were ultra-beautiful in the first place, but still!). Think it's the sun that does us in, Whale! (Lubriderm is good, as well, by the way.)

This is NOT the old Vaseline lotion but rather a SPECIAL hand and nail conditioner. I know it looks like plaine old vaseline (which never did anything for me) but this is DIFFERENT!

I knew exACTly what you were talking about, Whale! I already understood that you weren't talking about 'good old' Vaseline. I should have made myself clear in my comment, but I was in a hurry to get out of here and over to Kroger's. Sorry.
