I am interested in knowing if the Mrs O'Keefe's and the Bag Balm sting when applied to chaffed, chapped hands.

Nothing like having your hands sting while slipping gloves on.

For me the O'Keeffe's was one of the few things that didn't sting when applied to my cracked hands. It kind of felt like I was rubbing shortening on my hands. To look at my hands, you would think that I had never done a day's work in my life, LOL. I had a co-worker say that to me the other day.

I don't know. But, I suspect that the Bag Balm doesn't sting. I don't think the cows would put up with having it put on their udders if it did.

Everyone knows the trick of putting lotion on your hands before bed and then a pair of gloves, right eh?

Not vinyl gloves so you can keep working...those things are HOT!

I picked the Shikai Lotion by using three testers in the store and it was one. It didn't sting AND it reduced the redness in the time it took me to wander the store, about 45 minutes. At that time, my hands were so chapped they were bleeding.

No, not vinyl gloves, cotton gloves. It works with feet too, just use cotton socks.

Now that, I do, but just the socks. I tried the glove trick and couldn't sleep, felt like I was being smothered.

My hands get to bleeding when they get chapped, and they are always on fire. The soap we use at work is kind of harsh, and I end up washing my hands about 30 or more times a day. It was great finding something that worked for me.

Grapeseed oil is as beneficial as Borage oil. I've been using a bottle of grapeseed (cheaper than Borage) as a facial, too! It's really helped the "old lady" dry skin...

It is nice finding things that work.
