Gloves in a Bottle Collaboration Review
Most people don’t know this about me. But I have eczema. Thankfully, it’s only on parts of my fingers, so it’s not noticeable , however it is a menace to take care of. I have a topical steroid that I use that my dermatologist prescribed for me, and this is instant relief.
If you have psoriasis or eczema, you know how difficult this can be to treat, not to mention annoying. So when Gloves in a Bottle approached me to try their product, I was more than happy to give it a try and see if this was something that I could add to my “bag of tricks” for my eczema.
Honestly I was a bit skeptical, most over the counter eczema treatments have never worked on me, but YOLO, and I wasn’t loosing anything by trying it out. I did a little research on the product and here is what I learned.
Gloves in a Bottle actually bonds with your outer skin cells, forming an invisible shield that helps protect your skin. So what this does is basically allows the skin to lock in all the natural oils and moisture that it naturally produces, thus repairing the skin under the “glove”. I though this was pretty ingenious actually. You have to reapply it every 4-12 hours but who cares if it’s giving you relief.
My experience was very positive with this product. I am definitely keeping it as a part of my skin care for my eczema, especially when traveling. Even if you are in an industry where you wash your hands all day, I can see this product helping to retain some of your skins natural moisture. And I also love that once it dries, it is not sticky at all. It is actually kind of silky.
My eczema is more severe than most people , so it did not “cure” mine. But I think it’s worthwhile to try if you have eczema, psoriasis or wash your hands constantly. I think these companies are finally on the right path to finding ways to cure our ailments.
