ironically, i asked the guy in the paint section the other day - and he said 'we don't carry any beauty products' or some smart ass comment like that (!?!)
I would not have been able to contain myself...too many comebacks just roll off the tongue:
"No shit, ya'll are ugly as sin" "Well, with that mug, maybe you should look into it" "Might want to start, it's like haloween everyday up in this muthaf#$*r"
Never seen O'Keefe's around here, and I've been in WAY too many HomeDepots lately...then again, not exactly looking for lotion in there either. Also never had much of an issue with cracks and whatnot, I've been using Udderly Smooth Cow Udder Cream (which I just saw in WalMart last night at about half what I paid in the drug store) as soon as I finish climbing...wash the chalk off, udder cream on...I live in the desert, heels get it sometimes when I'm in flips a lot and don't sand them down, but not hands. Must be lucky I guess.
Purchased this last week at the recommendation of another climber (hadn't seen this thread before). I have a real problem with split finger tips and cuticles, esp after climbing in the gym, where every hold seems to be caked with chalk. Only been using it 5 or so days, but noticing a huge difference. The split finger tips are already far less painful and are healing much more quickly than with normal lotion. Tried normal lotion, burts bees "farmers hands," and climb on! hand creme, none have come close to how this helps. Just ordered it off Amazon. Highly recommend.
Yeah, too bad John L was killed in an unfortunate, nasty, cheesegrating accident. I never got to tell him how much his comments about the Bible's passages about not forgivin' people touched this brutha heart.
Seriously, though, this stuff is the shit. Working construction, don't use chalk, drywall destroys my skin badly enough without it. A couple applications of WH puts me right, every time. Got favorable reviews from an old-ass coworker with splits in his cuticles deep enough to shove Tid Tacs into. He healed all his splits, some of which had been around for probably years, in a couple of weeks.
