Review: O'Keefe's for Healthy Feet & Working Hands

*Disclosure* I received these products complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are 100% honest and my own!

Hey everyone! I was contacted a little while ago to try out O'Keefe's for Healthy Feet cream and the Working Hands cream. I was really excited and happy to try them out as my feet and especially my hands, were pretty dry.

I'll give you guys a little info on the brand to start. Originally, these products were designed for the hands and feet of ranchers and contractors. It makes sense to me, because they use their hands for everything and I'm sure their feet need some love too. These products are now gaining popularity with women and people in the beauty industry because they're really effective in relieving dry, cracked hands and feet. Each jar retails for $7.99 and you can buy them on their website, or in stores. I did a zip code look-up to see where I can find them and Bed, Bath & Beyond, Rite Aid, Target and different hardware stores like Home Depot and Lowe's come up. They're also in craft stores! You can also buy the jars online separately, or in bundles to get free shipping. A spending minimum of $20 is required to get free shipping. The products are made in the USA, and they don't test on animals (yay!)! These products are also fragrance free.

Once I received these, The first one I tried was the foot cream after my showers at night. When I opened up the jar, the first thing I thought was it looked like frosting! You know, like cake frosting. Weird, I know, but once I put some on I noticed right away how soothing it felt. I also have to note, you only need a little bit because a little product goes a long way. I was even told so in the note that was sent in the package! If it feels greasy, you've applied too much. I must've put on the right amount, which is about the size of about two peas, because it wasn't greasy at all. I still put socks on afterwards to help lock in the moisture, although it's not necessary. I also get these weird dry patches on my ankles that other foot lotions don't help with. This cream does! I couldn't believe it once I took my socks off in the morning to see how my feet and ankles looked. I'm not showing a picture of my feet because honestly, who wants to see a picture of my feet?!

Now it took me a little longer to try out the hand cream, only because I love my hemp hand cream from The Body Shop so much, and I have tons of hand creams to use up! Then I was thinking, I have to try this so I can give you all a good, honest review. When I opened up this jar, I didn't think it looked like frosting (womp womp). It looks more like less lumpy cottage cheese in my opinion. Again, I used about a two pea sized amount and rubbed my hands together. It wasn't greasy at all but I still felt something on my hands, like it wasn't sinking in right away. I did read that they add paraffin to it to help seal the product in, which was probably what I was feeling. I'm ok with that because the feeling didn't last too long. I also love that this lasts through about two or three hand washings. I know I've said before that I work in retail, so I'm always washing my hands so I don't get sick and whatnot. After using this hand cream in the morning, then going to work and going about my normal day, I still felt like my hands were soft and just felt good. I absolutely hate having dry, cracked hands, so this came in handy!

So there you have it! I'm so happy and appreciative to have gotten a chance to try these products. I had never heard of this brand before, but I'm pretty sure I'll be buying more of these now that I know I can go right down the street to buy them! I really hope you liked reading this post, and if you want to learn more about these products, definitely check out their website. There's tons of useful information and testimonials.
