With more than 21,300 reviews — more than 16,700 of which are a perfect five-stars — the brand’s winning product is O'Keeffe's Working Hands Hand Cream. The $9 cream everyone is clamoring to get their hands on was originally $12.50.
This concentrated hand cream relieves, heals and repairs extremely dry skin that comes with skin conditions or manual jobs. Made with glycerin and paraffin, it works by drawing in hydration and creating a protective barrier that seals the skin from further moisture loss.
“I love this stuff! I am a fireman and constantly wash my hands,” raved a reviewer. “Especially in the winter around my nail beds and fingertips will crack and bleed...This stuff is a miracle worker. It feels waxy like it's locking in the moisture. I put it on at night and can still tell it's on in the morning. I am a regular buyer/user of this now, and could't be happier!”
Other reviewers said Working Hands helped with relief from skin conditions such as chronic eczema and psoriasis, along with those associated with diabetes. Many also added that a little bit goes a long way with this product — just apply a small dab on clean hands as needed throughout the day.
“I have spent 10 years in the military and the last seven working in the Oil & Gas industry. I work with my hands a lot! ...For approximately the last 17 years I have dealt with dry and cracked cuticles and rough knuckles,” explained a happy customer. “I have tried many other lotions and creams which left my hands feeling greasy and then dry again in five minutes. With O'Keeffe's in less than 1 week my hands are doing much better. The best thing about this stuff is that I apply it twice a day only, once in the morning and once in the evening. My hands never feel greasy afterward, and remain moisturized all day.”
Reviews from real working hands
Happy customers who give it five-stars are those with real “working hands” and include everyone from workers in the construction industry to the healthcare fields. They all agree Working Hands hand cream is a must-have.
Construction industry: “Having been in the construction business for 42 years, I have tried many hand treatments with minimal success over many years. For the past 12 years I used a product that did a great job at both moisturizing and healing, however, the cream did not allow me to use tools after applying due to leaving my hands with that greasy coating...Then came O'Keeffe's, on the counter of a local lumber dealer, who had nothing but positive comments about his and others' personal experience. Hesitantly, I tried it. It did all that my previous lotion did, but it loses that initial newly coated greasy feel with in minute or two...This is the product to heal split areas on my hands, and also to prevent my cuticle's from drying out and cracking.”
Service Industry: “Best product for service industry employees such as myself who frequently do dishes, handle food, & come into contact with toxic chemicals as cleaning agents used in most public venues! O’Keeffe's Working Hands is something I simply will Never go without because having cut-free hands is priceless!”
Mechanic industry: “ I am a mechanic and work with my hands all day often on dirty equipment which requires frequent hand washing with harsh soaps which tend to dry my skin...I have tried a multitude of hand lotions. Most were greasy and not very helpful for healing painful cracks. This product is the best I have tried. I use it once a day at bedtime. It absorbs quickly and has very little odor. The cracks on my fingers have healed nicely during the first week of use and no more cracks have appeared.”
Healthcare industry: “I'm an RN...The combination of cold dry weather, irritating medication, and constant hand washing/sanitizing was doing a number on the skin of my hands and halfway through every shift I was breaking out in rashes on my hands and my knuckles were cracked and bleeding. This is the ONLY non-prescription lotion that has helped, and it is keeping my hands in much more comfortable condition. But what I really really love is that it has virtually no odor (so it's hospital fragrance policy-friendly), and it sinks into skin extremely quickly so it doesn't leave you feeling greasy or sticky (a lifesaver when you need to put on gloves two minutes later!).”
