the packaging is similar

they look similar

i have never been a lotion type of guy. i’m just not interested in regularly put moisturizing lotion on my hands or body. i’ve paid a small price for it but that has never been too big of a deal. i have dealt with a couple of calluses on my hands that have been directly related to my lack of skin moister. still it hasn’t been a major pain for me.

that was until we moved to the cold weather of wisconsin.

the weather up here dries me out and the only comfortable solution has been a regular application of lotion. i have a container that stays in my car and we keep plenty of different types of lotion around the house for putting on whenever we need it. the problem is that today i discovered that not everything that looks like moisturizer actually is moisturizer.

there were two containers of moisturizer by the phone in the kitchen and my hands needed a little. one bottle of lotion was one that i was used to but the other had a cool nozzle on it and i thought "well, i’ll try that." because of the nozzle the lotion came out smoothly, which was great because it was rather thick lotion. i rubbed that stuff in more and more. instead of spreading out and being absorbed all the lotion seemed to do was clump all over my hands. the more i rubbed the worse it got. that’s when i thought o read the bottle. i had been trying to moisturize with seam glue.

it didn’t do a very good job of moisturizing my hands but it did a wonderful job of making my hands sticky and stink for the rest of the day.

  1. hmm, when I look at that nozzle, I think glue or silicone caulk, BUT the colors of the tube are definitely moisturizer tube colors.

    So, silicone… caulk… interesting nozzle… friendly colors… It is definitely some form of heel balm moisturizer for feet.
