What Dry Skin Sufferers Say:

I liked the way it made my hands feel, I didn't really give much conscious thought to the healing properties of this lotion. That is, until sometime last week when I reached down to instinctively touch a dry, chapped spot on my left hand knuckle with which I've lived for the past ten years. Despite use of many expensive products, I've never been able to alleviate this dry and cracked spot on my left hand. As is the case with many women, I've spent a small fortune on quality face and body treatments in an effort to stave off signs of aging and drying. And though I've been pleased with how many of the products feel, none have ever been able to remove the dry spot on my left hand.

It would amaze you to find that this dry patch on my left hand has completely disappeared! I couldn't find a trace of this rough area and my skin felt soft. The Skin MD Natural shielding lotion didn't just diminish the dry area... it completely removed it!! Being a skeptic at heart, I probably wouldn't have believed a story such as this had it been told to me. Believe me, no one is harder to convince than me so I found it absolutely amazing that there was anything on the market that can work so efficiently and miraculously!

The fact that I live up at almost 10,000 feet where the air is extremely dry and harsh on my hands is bad enough, but when you add the facts that I have an 18 month old son and also a job that requires me to wash my hands constantly these lead to dry and painfully chapped hands. As I have been using Skin MD Natural for the past month I have not had these problems.

Skin MD Natural works great! I will be strongly suggesting to all my colleagues who suffer from chapped and painful hands that they should be using Skin MD Natural! Once they try it they will also be convinced of its benefits.

Trish Conroy,

I wanted to contact you to inform you of how pleased I am with the protection Gloves In A Bottle lotion has provided. I am a nurse of 26 years and have used NUMEROUS products for my very sensitive dry skin and "Gloves in a Bottle" by far has helped my hands through the multiple washings, dry winter periods, cracked fingers, dry skin etc. the best. I am certainly good advertisement for your product and have recommended it to numerous others.

This is to let you know how we like Gloves In A Bottle. Guess what! I found that it works! Prior to "Gloves" I had every night been slathering Vaseline on my hands at night to no avail. Still I had dry skin - the painful fingertip cracks, one had begun to bleed, and the skin on my hands was constantly peeling. Very unsightly and painful.

That Friday afternoon, while in the car on my way back to work, I applied "Gloves" on my hands. It has a smooth feeling to it, like a barrier as you describe. I kept applying it during the day, for several days, the cracks closed up, the pain therefore went away, and the skin on my hands is 95% better. Thank you for a great product. I will keep using it so that my hands will become 100% better.

Well, again thank you for a great product. It is definitely going to be on my permanent shopping list because it works. It has improved my quality of life.

I'm writing this letter in regards to a new product that I had the rare pleasure of receiving from a very young store clerk while shopping in Fresno at Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I have an illness called Systemic Lupus Erythamatosis, which is in a nutshell, is a disease that attacks my own immune system. I always have dry skin and at times very itchy. I develop rashes and rough, dry skin on different areas of my body, so of course I am always looking for a lotion or moisturizer to sooth these areas of concern. To my amazement, after trying just a very small sample of your product, "Gloves In A Bottle", I was hooked! I have spent hundreds of dollars looking for the right lotion for my dry skin, but nothing has even come close to your product. I'm so tickled to have found this new product that I'm telling everyone I know and even those people I don�t know, what a fantastic skin product your company has developed. This product without a doubt, will be a life changing experience for those of us who deal with daily skin problems which range from irritants, illnesses, or just our own environment of which we are all exposed to "who knows what" on a daily basis. I can't begin to tell you the total excitement that I have for this Gloves In A Bottle product. I can only say that you will have me and everyone that I know for a lifetime customer.

Our hats are off to you for developing a winning product, that I assure you will be well received by anyone who is fortunate enough to come in contact with it. You have saved the day, or should I say, you have saved and protected our precious skin! Now I can throw away all of the unused product in my home, and replace them with Gloves In A Bottle, which I know works like a miracle for dry skin. Now, instead of putting Vaseline on my hands at bedtime and wearing a pair of gloves over it, I can simply smooth on a small amount of your product and know that I am getting the very best protection that money can buy. I just love your product and I love it so much, that I�m going to make sure that everyone I know in the healthcare industry, including my doctors, that this is the protecting qualities. You have my complete endorsement of your wonderful product.


I was at my pharmacy having my pharmacist help me look for latex-free bandages so I could cover the deep crack in my thumb that I have had for over a month. Every bandage they had (Band-Aid, Curad, Nexcare, ValueRight and a couple more brands) used latex and with my severe allergy, my skin comes off the bandage so I was out of luck until she found a brand that is latex-free and ordered it in for me. She also gave me Gloves In A Bottle and and told me to try BOTH. WOW!!! I used it before I went to bed Thursday night and when I woke up Friday morning that deep crack in the middle of my thumb that was bleeding the day before � was almost totally healed! I stopped in on my way to work and showed my pharmacist � she couldn't believe it either!!!

I'm now using it about 3 times a day and that deep crack �all but GONE!!! One more day and it will be! What an amazing product! I have tried everything � Triple-antibiotic ointment, pure Cocoa Butter, Corn Huskers, Vaseline�s Waterproof hand lotion, Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula Hand Cream, a hand cream for gardeners, Nu-Skin, Liquid Band-Aid, super glue dipped in baking soda (my boyfriend's father's fix � IT MADE IT WORSE because it killed and dried all the skin it touched!) � just to name a few � and NEVER have I gotten anything even close to the healing I got with JUST ONE USE!!!!! As I said � what an AMAZING PRODUCT!!! And no latex allergic reaction!!!

Please rush 4 bottles of Gloves In A Bottle to me! I want to give two to my dermatologist. He can�t believe my hands are so soft! I can�t believe it either. This is the first winter in 30 years that my thumbs aren�t split tender!

Katie Wright

I am writing to tell you how much I love your product "Gloves In A Bottle". As a person with very dry skin (think sake scales falling from nylons at the end of the day) and as a diabetic, I have searched all over for a hand care product that would keep my cuticles uncracked, and my hands soft and not old looking � well, I found it all in your product! I had back surgery in February of this year, and every time I used it, there was at least one nurse or health care worker with her hand out for some! As someone who thinks that there is not enough good feedback about products and services these days, it is my pleasure to award you my personal "Best News Ever!" prize... and my sincere thanks for a great product, at a reasonable price, that actually does what it claims to do! Again, thank you VERY much � I know I�ll be a very willing repeat customer!

I am crazy about Gloves In A Bottle! I've always had terribly dry and sensitive skin. I've tried many different products and lotions, but none compare to yours. I noticed a difference in my skin (hands and feet) with the first application. WOW! I like the fact that it's fragrance free and that it truly is greaseless.

My wife has had a dry heel problem for years and has used stones, razors, multiple creams (including Rx) and the MOMENT she put Gloves In A Bottle on, she said her problem was over.


I wanted to inform you of how this product has done wonders for a problem that I have been fighting with for a couple of years. The skin on the tips of my fingers, on both hands were cracking severely regardless of the various attempts I made to soften the skin and/or to apply medication to heal the cracks. My fingers were so bad that at times I had extreme difficulties buttoning my clothes or holding on to small items such as pencils, screwdrivers, etc. I started using Gloves IN A Bottle and it was almost an instantaneous improvement. Within 5 days of use of the product, applying it at least twice a day during that period, the cracks were nearly gone, the skin on my finger tips began defoliating and it was incredible how soft and supple my hands have become. This product is great, makes your hands feel good and soft. It�s been years since my hands have been so smooth and feel so good.

I am a studio potter, and I just wanted you to know how much I appreciate your product. After having my hands in clay and water all day they can get red and sore especially in the cool & dry Chicago winters. Some of the clays have irritants or abrasives which cause fun rashes up my arms. After applying Gloves in a Bottle, all this dry skin has ceased! I can do my work for longer periods of time... the rashes are gone... and my hands remain soft and smooth despite the weather!

Jean Paul

I want to thank you for finally coming up with a product that can smooth my rough, dry feet! I have fought with ugly, dry skin on my feet for 20 years. The podiatrist sanded my feet and prescribed expensive creams and lotions for me, to no avail. I have tried everything on the market! Finally a friend introduced me to Gloves In A Bottle and my prayers have been answered! I can now wear sandals without being self-conscious.
