geekiviews: Gloves in a bottle

Gloves in a bottle

I was sent a sample of Gloves in a Bottle. It’s a shielding lotion much like the Skin MD Natural product I reviewed.. Both lotions perform the same actions, protect the outer layer of skin from harsh damage. Like Skin MD, it took a while for the shielding lotion to kick in. I’m not religious about putting lotion on and I’m sure that had something to do with my results. I like Glove in a bottle better, the lotion is a thicker consistency without leaving your hands greasy. I bottle is $12.95USD and contains about 120 applications.

How Gloves In A Bottle Works
The outer layer of your skin consists of dead skin cells – it’s a protective layer designed to protect the delicate living cells of the deeper layers of skin. This layer of skin needs to stay moisturized to protect the deeper layers of skin. In order to keep the moisture (water) from leaving the outer layer of skin, the skin produces natural oils. These oils also help keep irritants away from the deeper layers of skin. Regular washing with soap or exposure to chemicals can remove these natural oils.

When the natural oil is stripped from the outer layer of skin the moisture (water) quickly leaves the outer layer of skin leaving the skin dry, irritated, and itchy. Worse, the deeper layers of skin are left exposed to harsh damaging substances including detergents, solvents, cleaners, paint and thinners, gardening chemicals, dirt and grease, latex gloves and powder, etc.

This results in more dry, irritated, and itchy skin that becomes chapped, cracked and damaged.

Hand and skin lotions only replace natural oils with artificial ones. These offer temporary relief that does little to heal the skin. Regular use of lotions can actually cause the skin to produce less natural oils.

Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion – it bonds with the outer layer of your skin and helps lock in your natural oils and moisture – the reason why dermatologists recommend Gloves as an effective dry skin treatment.

Instead of attempting to replace natural oils, Gloves In A Bottle forms a web or bond with the dead skin cells that works like an invisible pair of gloves. This invisible pair of gloves helps reduce the natural oil and moisture loss allowing the skin to heal itself. Gloves In A Bottle helps the outer layer of skin to keep its natural oils and moisturizers that protect the deeper layers of skin, leaving the skin soft and supple.

Gloves In A Bottle keeps the outer layer of skin functioning so well so it can breathe and perspire naturally. Because Gloves In A Bottle becomes part of the outer layer of skin itself, it doesn’t wash off like conventional lotions. It comes off naturally with exfoliating skin cells. For continued protection, just reapply every 4 to 12 hours.

  1. If you’re thinking about hand lotions and skin cares one of the best solutions around at the moment for moisture loss seems to be a shielding lotion – have a look at Gloves in a Bottle. A good shielding lotion treats and prevents dry skin by bonding with the surface layer of the skin to form a protective layer that locks in the skin’s natural moisture while also preventing absorption of drying chemicals and pollutants. Observing some skin care basics (see below) using a good shielding lotion will ensure your skin stays moist and beautiful throughout the year.
    Some basic skin care tips: –
    Use natural body cleansers that are mild and don’t contain harsh chemicals.
    As much as possible, do the same for your home. Go green!
    If you’re out in the sun, winter or summer, apply a sunscreen.
    Again, go for something natural. There are a few products available now that do not contain harmful ingredients.
    Keep your skin moisturized.
    Protect your skin against the harsh environment – whether it is pollutants, dry winds, rain, snow, sleet or hail.
