gloves-in-a-bottle.jpg I am going to do another product review today, but since I wasn’t thrilled with the product I wanted to live up to the “Things I Love” title and give you a quick run down of those first.

  1. The Things That Come Out Of Lily’s Mouth: As I was getting dressed to go work out at the gym Lily hit me with these words of wisdom: “Mom, if you go to the gym and someone thinks your clothes aren’t pretty, it really isn’t your clothes, it’s your ponytail.” Thank you for that self-esteem boost little miss fashionista.
  2. American Idol Auditions:I know some people think these are cruel, but who are these people and why do they think they can sing? I think Simon has been very restrained so far, even borderline kind. My favorite moment so far was when an Egyptian-American young man spoke these words: “I want to find a woman who I can love from her hair all the way to her…(pause while searching for just the right word)…nipples.” Look for that on a Hallmark card anyday now.
  3. Playing Oregon Trail on Facebook: Do you people remember this game? Oh the fond memories from my Apple IIE. I just finished the trail and only lost 2 members of my team. Sadly, one of them was my husband who the team apparently sacrificed due to bad odor. I always suspected that might be how he meets his demise.

Onto, the product review. A while ago, I reviewed a great lotion called Skin MD. The same people who sent me that, sent me another lotion called Gloves in a Bottle. The premise is that when you use lotions, they come off when you wash your hands or touch things. This product instead bonds with the outer layer of skin making your skin a “glove” to outside irritants.

Here is the good. You need very little lotion to achieve a moisturizing affect. It is hypoallergenic, fragrance and color free which is great for sensitive skin. Here is the problem. Apparently I want fragrance in my lotion. Cause fragrance free seems to equal smells like glue. I also wasn’t thrilled with the way it made my hands feel tacky. I think that is the glove forming, but I didn’t really like it. Maybe this would be great if your worked in a field where you had to do a lot of handwashing or touching drying agents (or working with glue), but for your average joe, I didn’t really dig it. I liked Skin MD much better.

Now, I will say the website claims you can put it on irritated skin, rashes and eczema and it will help the skin heal by protecting it. I don’t have any of those issues, but if you do it might be worth checking out. You could also check it out if you have a problem sniffing glue as this might get you off the stuff (guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue-Airplane, anyone…?). Again, the website is over here for more information.

    I felt the same way about Gloves in a Bottle. I used it a few times and then just couldn’t handle smelling like glue anymore. I’m going to give my bottle to my dad, who has a lot of skin problems, maybe it will be more beneficial for him.

    #1: HaHaHa! #2: Did anyone else suspect he was a Borat imitator? On the lotion: I prefer the Skin MD too; I just used the GIAB on my legs–worked pretty well and kept the cardboardy scent away from my nose!
