HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE 2013: O'Keeffe's Skin Creams for Working Hands and Healthy Feet

I'm sure you're probably wondering why I chose to include O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet and Working Hand products in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, well keep reading for the answer.

I love to snuggle up to hubby and rub my cold feet against his warm feet but sometimes he gets occasional dry, rough, callous heels and ouch.  I was so excited to try O'Keeffe's and promised hubby a foot rub if he'd help me sample O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet.  He NEVER turns down a foot rub especially after a long day's work.  

I'm not much of foot rub person but after a few days of using O'Keeffe's I noticed my feet were softer so I thought I'd try them on hubby's tired feet.  Guess what?  O'Keeffe's really worked magic on his feet.  

I'll be the first to confess to dry, callous heels, especially in the Summer when I'm wearing sandals and flip flops all the time.  O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet didn't leave my feet feeling slippery and oily and that was a relief.  Other foot creams and balms often leave my feet feeling like I dunked them in a basin of oil.  YUK!  Anyone who follows Three Boys and an Old Lady blog knows I don't like a lot of scents and O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet had a really light scent.  It wasn't odorless but there was no real scent.

O'Keeffe's isn't limited to feet, they also make O'Keeffe's Working Hands and this is perfect for those who suffer from severely, dry and cracked hands.

I tried it but I don't really suffer from dry, cracked hands but my cousin does.  He works in an automotive garage and he's always under the hood of his car tooling away.  Working on cars leaves his hands rough to the touch.  Many of the hand cleaners he uses to wash away the goo and gunk of working on cars don't help much either.  Those hand cleaners contain pumice which seems to rub away the smooth skin exposing his palms to dry air leaving his skin dry and cracked and even more susceptible to callouses.  I shared the O'Keeffe's Working Hands with him thinking it'd be perfect for him and I was right.  

He said he's definitely buy O'Keeffe's Working Hands because his hands were noticeably softer.  

Me?  I liked the density of the cream and it definitely left my hands feeling soft.  I keep it in my purse so I always have it on hand (no pun intended) and it never fails whenever I take it out of my purse someone asks, "What's that?"  I love to share and once they try O'Keeffe's Working Hands I get the same question, "Where'd you get that from?"  When I tell them that O'Keeffe's Working Hands and Healthy Feet creams may be found at Walgreens, Target, Walmart, and so many other stores, they're surprised.

Now to answer why I chose to include O'Keeffe's creams in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide, my mother-in-law and I were at dinner a few weekends ago.  After a visit to the ladies' room to wash my hands after dinner, the soap left my hands very dry so I reached in my purse and grabbed my O'Keeffe's Working Hands.  I offered some to my mother-in-law and she rubbed her fingers in the tub and applied to her hands.  I hadn't thought anymore about it until last week when we stopped by to visit my in-laws and my mother-in-law asked where I bought it.  I told her it was available at stores everywhere and she said O'Keeffe's Working Hands Hand Cream would make a great stocking stuffer.  Who knew?

I never thought about it but she's right.  Winter weather wreaks havoc on our skin, especially our hands because they're often exposed so that's why  chose to include O'Keeffe's creams in my 2013 Holiday Gift Guide.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
