I was just surfing the net and came across this barrier cream for hand safety. I wondered if anyone has used it and what people thiink. It certainly seems a lot more user friendly than gloves. On the other hand, I tend to be of the "if it seems to good to be true..." persuasion so am a bit sceptical.
Comments?

Thanks!

Hi
wouldn't " waxes, glycerine, and natural oil " get into your pastel?

That was definitely one of the things I wondered about. I guess maybe it just wouldn't work with pastels. Oh well.

Hi Sandy,

I usually use a barrier cream on my hands when working with pastels. It soaks into the skin and stays there; I haven't noticed it affecting my pastel sticks at all. Using the cream, my fingers might pick up a slight bit more pastel dust from handling the sticks than bare hands would, but that is a very small difference. Not enough to make me use gloves or just bare hands. I like to feel what I'm doing and I like the protection.
