Review: Gloves in a Bottle

Rarely do I receive a product that works 120% of the time for me.

I always end up buying the latest thing in lotions because my skin is so unbelievably dry all year round that I hate drawing attention to them. On my bad days, I hate wearing my wedding ring because people look down on my hands and can see the dry, cracked cuticles. But these products never last long and seem to only give immediate, not long lasting results. If you go into my bathroom, you will see the newest lotion from every single major manufacturer out there on the market right now. And, all these bottles are half empty or old now because I became frustrated and switched to a new product. I had literally lost all hope that I would ever find a lotion that would work for me.

Well, not anymore!

A new, invigorating product called Gloves in a Bottle has completely changed the way I feel about my hands. After I used the product, I did some research. When I went to their website, I saw all the other recommendations from magazines and other blogs, such as the Fashionable Housewife blog, I knew I wasn't the only one in love with this product.

How is this any different? It's actually a shielding lotion; when you use it, it creates a barrier to protect your skin from allowing the bad stuff in life (sun, pollution, etc) from entering your skin and allows the good stuff to still come through (click here for a demonstration). Instead of using oils and alcohol to replace moisture in your skin, Gloves in a Bottle rids your skin of the dead skin cells and allows your natural oils to moisturize your skin. It actually allows your skin to breathe again! And, this lotion won't wash away because it actually forms a bond with your skin, keeping it protected for hours on end!

If you'd like to try Gloves in a Bottle, I have three samples to send. Just email me at!

ETA I have one sample left!

Winter is almost here and it is time to start taking steps to fight the dry skin that comes with it. I thought as a nurse I washed my hands alot, but after I had my baby I think I must wash my hands about a hundred times a day. Now, its definitely starting to take a toll on my skin. I received Gloves in a Bottle three days ago and already I can tell a difference. My knuckles had begun to crack and between my fingers were very dry even after applying lotion. But since I started using Gloves in a Bottle, my skin is so much softer, and the cracks are gone. This baby gear is a must have for any parent. I know I sound like an infomercial or something, but this stuff really works! My husband who also is a nurse started using it and he loves it as well. How does it work you might ask?

It bonds with the outer layer of your skin and protects it from irritants while locking in your natural oils and moisture.

Even after you wash your hands, your hands are still soft and moisturized. You have to try this! Moms and dads out there, if you wash your hands as much as me, try it. Your skin will feel as soft as your baby’s. Go to You won’t be sorry. This gets a Baby Gear Today thumbs up!

Reviews and More
A couple months ago I was sent some samples of a product called Gloves in a Bottle. This is a shielding lotion that, according to the product description, bonds with the outer layer of skin in order to “keep the bad stuff out and the good stuff in.” Gloves in a Bottle is supposed to work well on dry, cracked skin, as well as on tougher ailments such as eczema and psoriasis, so I was excited to try it out — particularly with the colder weather coming on.

The lotion is very light and gets absorbed instantly without leaving a greasy residue. I usually hate the feeling of lotion on my hands precisely because of the residue that most of the cheap products leave behind, so I was glad to see that Gloves in a Bottle was different.

My hands felt smoother and softer after the very first application, and after several weeks of use, I noticed a definite improvement in their overall appearance. Specifically, I had fewer problems with my cuticles and no longer had cracked skin in the areas between my fingers, so it really worked for me.

The best part of using Gloves in a Bottle, in my opinion, is the fact that the lotion doesn’t wash off. As someone who washes my hands quite frequently throughout the day (because of dogs, kids, and, yes, a bit of OCD!), I appreciate not having to worry about reapplying my lotion each time I wash up. I just use a tiny bit of Gloves in a Bottle every four hours, and I’m all set.

I don’t expect you to just take my word for it about the effectiveness of Gloves in a Bottle, so go read some doctor testimonials on the official website and try the product for yourself!

Musings Of A Housewife: Review
Gloves In A Bottle -- "like an invisible pair of gloves"

I have nasty dry skin, flaky and itchy in the winter.  And my hands.  There are times my hands BLEED because they get so dry in the wintertime.  So when I was asked to review Gloves In A Bottle, I jumped at the chance.

This is a "shielding lotion".  This is actually the second shielding lotion I've reviewed, and the concept is a breakthrough in skin care. 

Independent lab test shows shielding lotions are the most effective dry skin care product.

Gloves In A Bottle is a shielding lotion that rapidly absorbs into, and bonds with, the outer layer of skin creating a protective layer while retaining the natural moisture from within. This makes it the perfect dry skin care product.

It does not wash off, but comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells. Just reapply every four hours for continued protection.

It's greaseless, non-sticky, fragrance-free, hypoallergenic, completely safe and non-toxic.

Gloves In A Bottle did not disappoint.  I put some on last night before bed, and when I woke my hands were still soft and smooth, even on the edges of my index fingers, where I tend to get very dry and cracked.  I put more on this morning, and even after I washed my hands several times, they remained soft.  And I love that this lotion goes on without ever feeling sticky.

The best part is, it's quite affordable.  An 8-ounce bottle goes for $12.95.

I was sent two 8-ounce samples, and I am going to offer one as a giveaway because I'm nice like that.  Seriously, I'd love to keep both for myself.  I expect I'll be buying some when my sample runs out.  But I want to give someone else the chance to try it for free. 


All you have to do is leave a single comment on this post.  That's it.  I'll draw a random number next Friday to select a winner.  You must have a U.S. address in order to enter.  Good luck!

**Update:  As for where to purchase, you will get lots of hits if you google "gloves in a bottle".  And I know that carries it.
