J.M. Findley's rave Cool Tools review follows.




For years I've been plagued with skin cracks or fissures on my fingertips, especially in winter.

After a weekend of cooking, chores, or gardening, my hands were a painful mess.

No lotions, oils, or creams helped much, and it's impractical to keep fingertips bandaged all the time.

I picked up a jar of O'Keeffe's Working Hands at my grocery store and have been using it for two weeks.

It has completely changed and improved the texture of my skin.

No more ragged cuticles either, and even my fingernails are stronger.

It is completely odorless and not greasy.

Their advertising says it's the high concentration of glycerin that does it.

Whatever it is, it feels like a miracle to me.


It took me a while this winter to realize that it's much better to prevent hangnails and cracked fingertips and their ilk than to deal with them.


$9.49 (I paid $7.39 in 2013).

O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet Cream: $9.51 ($8.37 in 2013).

My go-to when I have severely cracked skin on my fingers. Prior to settling on this solution, sometimes it was so bad that it was near impossible to give a good fingerprint.

My wife loves O'Keefe's!

I can also recommend Healthy Hoof for nail care.

Bought for my wife back in 2013, she is complaining that her fingers are cracking now that we are up in Vermont. She thinks that she still has some at home. I'm pretty sure it was because you posted it!

I use this multiple times a day during the dry months. I use the squeeze tube instead of the tub though, easier to dispense and keeps the remaining product sanitary
