My find for Soft Hands

With winter coming, I would like to share my secret for soft hands. About 2 years ago, I ran out of hand soap. I needed to wash my hands so as I looked around the bathroom closet for some soap, the only thing I had on hand was my fiance's shaving cream. He uses Barbasol with Aloe. It not only cleaned my hands but left them very soft. I must say I was impressed. Instead of buying hand soap, I bought the Barbasol with Aloe. It is very inexpensive, $1.19 for the small can. I have one sitting on the sink in all 3 bathrooms & the kitchen.

We had a visitor who was helping my son work on his car. He ask for something to get the grease off his hands. I told him to use the Barbasol. He laughed at me but said he would try it. When he came out of the bathroom, he was smiling. He told me that nothing he had ever used got the grease off & didn't tear up his skin like that.

The only problem we have had is visitors coming out & telling me there is no soap in the bathroom. LOL I am thinking about printing a label & taping it on the can.

Thanks, everyone I have told has loved it. Now I watch for the Barbasol on sale & stock up. One can lasts for a couple of months.

I posted this about 5 or 6 months ago & it didn't get any comments. I am curious to know if anyone else has tried this. It really does work great & saves a lot.
