When temperatures dip, our hands get cracked and chapped faster than you can say “ho, ho, ho.” That’s because low humidity and harsh cleansers wreak havoc on skin’s protective barrier and lead to extreme dryness. This balmy cleanser from our favorite apothecary seals in moisture so hands are left soft and supple—never tight or dry.
Chapped skin is the worst! Every winter, even if it's not that cold outside, I seem to suffer from it. Enter C.O. Bigelow Chapped Hands cleanser. It takes a bit of getting used to as I normally use liquid hand soap, but the difference is night and day. My skin feels great after I wash my hands and I get fewer cracks and hang nails. I use this whenever my hands could use a little TLC. Do follow the instructions though and massage into dry hands first. Due to the high oil content, applying to wet or damp hands will not have the desired effect.5
If there was ever the ultimate saviour for dry cracked chapped and bleeding hands, this is it! I suffer terribly every fall and winter and this cleanser is part of my daily ritual. I use it twice a day (but that's because it so good I don't want to waste it all). Totally recommend this product to someone who is tired of useless hand creams.5
I purchased this due to reviews here and I'm only glad I used points to purchase. I've tried it and although I like the silky feel, it just didn't leave my hands soft and supple as advertised.3
This is an amazing product. I have severe eczema especially during the winter months. It soothes, calms, heals, refreshes and truly saves my hands.5
I love this stuff. For an alternative to hand soap, this cleanser is perfect. It coats your hands with a balm like texture and rinses off leaving them feeling moist and protected.5
I live in Arizona where it's really dry and my hand are always white and cracking from the dryness and continual washing of my hands. Using this Soap-Free Cleanser along with the Chapped Hands Lotion, my hands stay moisturized and healthy. I love this stuff!5
I have tried every hand cleanser out there, and my hand always get so dry. Even the ones that are supposed to be moisturizing aren't really. This not-soap hand cleanser is amazing. My hands are clean (it even took off a stripe of waterproof eyeliner on the back of my hand), but not greasy. I am so happy to have found this, and I'll be a repeat customer for sure!5
I grew up in the "Bigelow" neighborhood. Spoiled! Seeing their products took me "home." This product is brilliant! I started using it after a LONG winter of drying antibacterial hand soaps. This was emollient..a hand treat! With a clean, menthol scent. Best soothing hand cleaner . Will be re-ordering this.5
It hasn't fixed my dry, chapped skin, but it feels soothing and it does help. I have had a tub by my sink for a year and haven't finished it, granted I don't use it every day...but is value for money and I buy it for friends.5
This is the best, best, best thing ever, especially in winter! It is super gentle and doesn't leave hands oily, just softly moisturized, and CLEAN! I am tempted to buy a jar for work to take to the restroom, because the soap there wrecks my hands. I wish there was a small size to throw in my purse too!
Also, a tip- it helps to blot hands dry, rather than wiping, to hang onto all that moisture.
