  1. I am obsessed with hand lotion. If they feel the least bit dry, I get out the lotion. I also never go to bed without applying the stuff!!! ~Val

  2. I'm afraid that I don't take as good care of my hands as I probably should. Once and awhile I will put lotion on my hands, put cotton gloves on and sleep with them on overnight. When I wake up in the morning my hands are super soft! The only problem is that I often forget to do it!
