Help for Dry Skin

When Flight Attendants find products that we love, we stock up on them.  We buy for ourselves, other Flight Attendants, friends, family, you name it.  We expect everyone to love it as much as we do.
Here' one item that's rates very high right now on my list of favorites:  La Source 60-Second Fix Kit for Hands from Crabtree & EvelynAnother Flight Attendant friend turned me on to this product, and I've been hooked ever since.
We are constantly washing our hands, and our serving, handling of trash, and the dry cabin environment really takes it toll on our skin.  It's parched, and is looking and feeling dry and scruffy.  I'm sure that other frequent fliers complain of the same problem.
Enter the 60-Second Fix Kit.  It's a 2-step treatment consisting of a scrub that exfoliates as well as giving your hands a smooth protective coating, followed by a cream.  There are a variety of fragrances in addition to La Source.
I use it every day when I'm flying, and it's made a world of difference.  My hands are still not as "soft as a baby's bottom," but it's a big improvement.
If you fly a lot and have other product recommendations, please let me know.

I don't go anywhere without my Cetaphil cream. It works wonders on my hands.

Their cleansing wash is the only thing I let touch my face, it is that good. I have converted all my female friends into loyal users.

The "Nantucket" shea butter hand cream from Crab Tree is awesome and smells good. The scent is extremely light, clean and delicate. I carry it in my purse and use some every time I wash my hands.

number4of5: I've used the Cetaphil cleansing wash for years and swear by it as well. Gentle, effective, and cheap!

Anonymous: Will look for Nantucket when I'm at an Crabtree & Evelyn store next. I need a little tube of cream to keep in my purse.

Hi there! I got the LaSource hand cream as a gift from a friend once and I really liked it - a tad rich, but I can see how this would work if you're traveling. I'm also linking this entry to my blog entry about moisturizer as well. Thanks for the review!

Hey there, FG!

When my mom was employed by Delta, she used to frequent the website.

Just a few treasures she got was:

Curler Cooler.
Within moments, she cooled a hot curling iron to a normal state for quick stowing in the luggage. (

The bucky-u pillow helped out alot, especially in the crew lounges where relaxing can be a hassle!!! { )

Check out, they rock!
