O'Keeffe's Working Hands - Hand Salve Testimonial

We don't usually pitch products here on the Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes blog.  Our humble blog is small enough that it never attracts the attention of companies who would offer us free samples in exchange for a glowing product testimonial.  So any praise you read here is genuine and all products were procured by us, at relevant market prices. 

OK, legal disclaimers and other information aside...If you have dry or cracked hands, you should pick up some O'Keeffe's Working Hands.  It works and it is awesome.  And this is coming from a dude (me) that hates anything that makes my hands greasy, so when I say that I actually don't mind using O'Keeffe's, that's about as high praise as I could offer.  I'd seen ads for it in Mother Earth News over the years and finally bought some several months ago on a whim during a visit to a local hardware store. 

Between the extreme cold here and the dry air of winter, my hands get pretty gnarly in the winter.  And for some reason, playing basketball and volleyball causes the ends of my fingers to simply split open.  All the time.  All winter.  It sucks and is pretty darn unpleasant.  It's like constantly having a half-dozen paper cuts on the tips of your fingers, but O'Keeffe's has really fixed the problem.  And not only do I love this stuff, but so does Alycia.  Double endorsement ahoy!

On the rare occasion that we do pitch products, it's always something we truly believe in like: Tuffy Dog Toys, Goughnuts Green Stick Dog Toy, and Iron X Weed Killer.  We don't put our Deaf Dogs and Benevolent Gnomes stamp of approval on much, but when we do, it's something that we use and love.  We've accordingly added this product to the DDBG Stamp of Approval Amazon widget on the left side of the page.  You can buy it online, but we've been able to find it locally at Ace Hardware, Lowe's, and Menard's.

Anyone else ever used O'Keeffe's before?  If so what'd you think?  If not, what's your go-to remedy for gnarly, chapped, or winter-battered hands?
