    Yes I know I am a bloke and should be all blokey and watch football and stuff but.. I recently had to get a handcream. Mainly because when the weather changes between hot and cold my skin can't handle it and it gets tight and starts to bleed it gets so tight.

    So I got a handcream from a pharmacy, standard handcream, and what I hate about handcreams is that they are tacky and sticky. Now for a bloke this is totaly unacceptable.

    We had a bit of a meetup with the family and one of my aunts who works in a health store gave me the end of some Aloe Vera handcream tube.

    Whats really nice about this moisturizer is that it isnt tacky once you rub it into your hands and doesnt leave a tacky feeling on your hands.

    So guys, if you suffer dry skin on your hands, you can use this stuff. Any Aloe Vera Gel, preferably 99.9% pure. Just have it hidden somewhere and when you have it on your hands so it looks like hair gel (dont put it in your hair of course) once you rub it in its dry and nobody will notice, only your wife/girlfriend, who will wonder why your hands are baby soft...

    Thanks Pierce! I've just ordered some.

    I get the same thing with my hands but for me it's caused by eczema and it's all year round. I really hate the feeling of moisturiser and with two kids and a full time job I don't have much time for sitting around with sticky hands (yuck!!) so I often leave it until they're really painful before I do anything about it... :sigh:

    So this may the answer I've been looking for! :D :D
