How to Use
Rated 4.16 out of 5 stars
It takes a couple nights to get used to wearing gloves while you sleep but once you do they're no big deal. These gloves are plenty big and have enough room at the tip so when my nails are long they don't poke through. Eventually of course they will wear out - my current pair has a couple little holes so I need to replace them but they still work.
REASON FOR TITLE;
I've only had and used the gloves for about a week and a half.
REASON FOR RATING;
I sought out these gloves due to excessive hand washing, dry air, and use of hospital grade chemicals at work. My hands are so chapped, cracked and painful that extra TLC was in order. My first pair of Earth Therapeutics came from another store that only had the aloe infused version, which I had to return due to defects.
Though I wish these were aloe infused as the first ones I bought, that you don't have to get a new pair after 20 or so washes is a definite bonus.
If you like to read or play on your phone before bed, you will be happy to know the gloves slightly work on smartphones so you don't have to cut into moisturizing time.
1-size-fits-all as usual irritating - the fingers are too big and the material is too short at the wrists. The first few uses the gloves came off in my sleep, which may not have happened if they were more my size.
Because the gloves are not moisturized, without lotion the gloves do slightly irritate chapped skin. With lotion, your hands don't stay moisturized for more than a few hours.
The material is not breathable, which makes for uncomfortable nights in warm weather or if you are not used to wearing gloves to bed.
In the short time I have had these gloves, I can't completely attest to how well they are helping my dry, chapped and painful skin. I can say I have noticed a SMALL improvement in the pain and dry skin areas, and despite the cons I listed, until I come across a better pair I am satisfied with this product.

This is a replacement of an item I already had but they were getting worn!

I have small hands and these were still too tight for me. I had to return them the next day.

These worked really well , better than lotion alone. My hands were a bit dwarfed by these . I used them as a nighttime treatment but because of the size I couldn't keep them on while I slept.its an old fashion idea but it worked well

Nice gloves for the price. Lather my handa with my favorite lotion and put them on before bed. Comfortable and leaves my hands so soft and moisturized. No more dry hands!!!
Kristarr from Modesto
I wear them at night after lathering lots of lotion. Good gloves but slighly pricey
Vickie from Illinois
I use over heavy moisturizer at bedtime to soften and repair

Use your favorite hand lotion, or even body lotion before putting on these gloves. Simple white cotton gloves, but oh so effective. I end up pulling them off during the night but my hands are softer and my nails healthy. Recommended!

I bought these on a whim to help with my devastatingly dry hands. I feel super pretentious putting them on before bed but I swear thy have helped my hand creams absorb better and haven't had a scaly cracked patch on my hands since. I work in the medical field so constant hand washing and sanitizer use.

My husband uses these. He has a very bad form of psoriasis. He wears these when home at night to help keep moisture on his hands. He has large fingers and it's great that this stretches to fit him. Also he is able to cut off the tips of the gloves so that he can wear to work (and be able to use his fingers for his manufacturing work). They hold up pretty well for the price.

I have been using nightly and they don't seem to make much difference.

I bought to wear at night with my favorite sensitive skin treatment. Definitely works like a cotton glove should. Easy to wash and dey

I have very dry skin and my friend suggested putting on tons of lotion before bed and then sleeping with socks on my hands. It was working but the socks felt weird so I bought these gloves. Nope. Bad choice. They are so light weight and big that they would fall off my hands in the middle of the night. And even on the nights that they would stay on the lotion still wouldn't absorb very well. I'm going back to socks.

Terrible, I threw my money away, those doesn't work, doesn't have anything special, absorbs all the lotion instead of my hands. I'm disappointed!!!

Even though there are other products on the market, I really like these as they are not too hot. The "furry" ones tend to make my hands sweat at night and can be uncomfortable in the summer.

These are perfect for intense moisturizing! I lather up with my favorite lotion, put the gloves on, and go to sleep. My hands are super soft in the morning!

Plain white gloves cotton w spandex. Unfortunately the gloves absorb too much of lotion to help moisturize

Just so you know, these are JUST GLOVES. They don't come with any cream. I used them with a moisturizing hand cream and they work wonderfully! Cheaper to buy once and use with hand cream than to keep using pre-packaged hand masks.

I like to moisturize and then wear gloves to bed each night. I wake up with softer, smoother hands.

Gloves fit well and seem to hold moisture for quite a while.
Cris from Riverview Florida
These have been a big help for my dry hands. I work in a restaurant and my hands are in water all day. My fingers were dry and cracked. Wear these every night with lotion has given them a chance to heal. After a week they look completely different.
JGirl from Michigan
I have extremely dry hands , and after a few uses at night , these really helped improve the moisture
Lauren from New York
I purchased these for my young daughter - she's 6 and these were a little big, but still did the job wonderfully. Her little hands were so cracked and dry that they were bleeding. We had tried so many lotions and nothing gave her any relief. A few nights with some lotion and these gloves and her hands were healed and soft! These have held up to a few washings and we now use them a few times a week to keep her hands extra moisturized. While these almost fit a child, these fit my hands and I'm sure would fit my husband; they're soft and stretchy.

I searched many stores to find these cotton gloves and Ulta was the only place I could find them! These are the best thing for dry winter hands. Put on lotion/ointment, then the gloves and get a good nights rest and your hands will be soft and moisturized in the morning.

These are perfect for some extra TLC for my hands during the cold weather❤️ I have tried other gloves and they always were too tight or uncomfortable but these I can wear all night with ease.
