Glove Me Tender But Not on Rough Hands

Mar 30, 2007
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:softening, smoothing, invigorating scent

Cons:difficult to integrate, greasy, no lasting effects, works better on skin that isn't very dry

The Bottom Line: If you have normal or moderately dry skin and you're willing to work at integrating a cream into your skin, Glove Me Tender may be an acceptable choice for you.


My long-time dermatologist told me to use moisturizers on my hands. My eczema medicine alone wasn't cutting it. He gave me a few recommendations, but also told me to experiment a little and see what works for me.

I've been having a really difficult time finding a lotion or cream I like. Either they stink or they make my hands hurt or they don't work or all of the above. I recently tried Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Glove Me Tender


Glove Me Tender is thick, greasy, and difficult to integrate into the skin. It's definitely among the thickest Bath & Body Works cream; of those I've tried, only Lay It On Thick is thicker.

Glove Me Tender is somewhat effective in that it makes hands both softer and smoother, but, like several other products I've tried recently, it seems to work better on skin that isn't very dry. It can make hands a bit red and can make cut skin swell slightly so you definitely want to be careful if you do try it on dry skin.

Like most products on the market, repeated use of Glove Me Tender doesn't seem to have much effect. However, this is supposed to be a product that improves the state of your hands over time, so I find that more of a disappointment here than with most products which I've come to expect to have no lasting effects.

In addition to its moisturizing properties, Glove Me Tender provides an SPF 15 sunblock. I realize that sun damage can really hurt your skin and I wouldn't complain if I found an effective moisturizer that protects from the sun, but I'd rather use a more effective moisturizer and more effective sunblock than a combined product that isn't as good a moisturizer as the separate product. I'd have preferred that Bath & Body Works focused on making this a better moisturizer before it started adding in extra features like the sun protection.

Glove Me Tender has an invigorating scent that's hard to identify. There's maybe a hint of eucalyptus, but I'm not really positive about that and I can't identify any of the other component scents. Whatever it is, I like it. However, if you prefer subtle or relaxing scents it's not for you.

If you have normal or moderately dry skin and you're willing to work at integrating a cream into your skin, Glove Me Tender may be an acceptable choice for you. However, if you have dry skin or want your moisturizer to just melt into your skin without any effort, this isn't the product for you.
