the sticky icky

Since the fourth grade, I've always hated having dry hands. I have to apply hand cream right after I wash my hands. Everytime. I feel like my hands aren't grippy enough - things slip out of my fingers when I don't apply cream.

That's weird, right?

Anyway, I recently discovered Neutrogena's Norwegian Formula. I'd always seen it but never ventured to try it. When I was at Tar-jay the other day, I saw it on sale and decided to give it whirl because it claims that it's used by fishermen, whom apparently have trouble with dry, scaly hands. I don't know. Regardless, it was under $3 and I was out.


It's so freakin' sticky and greasy! (Um, yes, I'm the only one on the planet that likes super-duper-calafragilisticexpialidotiously greasy hand cream.) It's so thick that my hands are white with the grease and I have to wait a couple minutes after I apply before I put my hands on my mouse because it'll get all sticky!

Even the label cautioned that I should only use a dab. My little 2 oz tube is said to have 200 applications. Not the way I'm using it. I need to restock every one of hand cream hiding places with this magical stuff!

i can't do hand cream because my hands become slippery. the only one i can use is la mer hand cream.
