The O'Keeffe's company has been so generous and sent me two great products to review for you all! I want to give them a huge shout out and a big thank you! This is such a great company with great products that they offer. Before I get started with my review I would like to give you a brief history of these products and how they came to be that was passed down to me from the company which I found very interesting! Hope you do too. I also would like to give a little information about both products.
O'Keeffe's Working Hands was created more than 25 years ago by Pharmacist Tara O'Keeffee. Looking to find a solution that would help her father, a rancher and diagnosed diabetic, who suffered from very dry, cracked skin. After testing more than 40 different formulas of creams in her kitchen, she found a perfect solution that helped her dad and other local farmers find relief when nothing else worked. This cream is now marketed as O'Keeffe's Working Hands, sold in mass merchants, drug stores, grocery and hardware stores across the U.S. and Canada. A few years later, O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet was released, specially formulated to penetrate the tough, thick skin of feet.
The key ingredients that can be found in both O'Keeffe's Working Hands and O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet are as follows:
Water, Glycerin and Paraffin. The Water helps replace the water that the skin cells lose daily. The glycerin is to help draw the moisture into the skin and slow the excessive drying and evaporation. The level of glycerin in O'Keeffe's is higher than traditional lotions and creams. The Paraffin helps maintain the moisture in the skin.
Each of these products can be found in either a tube or a jar so you can get which you prefer. The tube is for ease of use and portability. Each product only costs $7.99 and can be found and purchased nation wide at:
Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, Home Depot, Lowe's and many additional retailers.
O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet is a wonderful product! I always have dry and cracked heels because I hardly ever wear socks and I am always seeming to be bare foot.. even outside sometimes ha ha! So they are badly cracked and rough which can be super embarrassing. I have been using this product for about a week now and I am already in love! My feet are already noticeably smoother and they do not hurt as bad as they used to because of the cracks. I love to apply this right after I get out of the shower in the morning and then once again right before I go to bed. That way I have moisture working through the day and while I am asleep. I am a firm believer in this product and I recommend it. It is worth the money!
If you know me you know I have A LOT of lotions and hand creams because my hands are always so dry because I have that kind of skin and the weather really affects it also. This winter and spring my hands have been the worst ever! They have been so cracked and to the point that my knuckles and in between my fingers are bleeding all the time and they hurt badly! It has even sometimes brought me to tears. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing has seemed to work. Once again I have been using this product about a week also and I have noticed a big difference with my hands. They are less dry and I am not bleeding as much!! Hallelujah! I again apply this right out of the shower and then again right before I go to bed. I love, love, LOVE this product and it is by far the best hand cream out there! This product gets a billion stars in my book and is a life saver. I will never go a day without O'keeffe's Working Hands. This product I highly, highly recommend!! You get a lot for your money also because you do not need to use very much.
I am so thankful to O'Keeffe's and honored to be able to try these products. I have been turned into a true O'Keeffe's believer and fan! This is such a great company! With that being said...!!
