O'Keeffe's Working Hands and Healthy Feet

By Rachsbeautique - 09:30

The roots of O'Keeffe's Company go back more than 20 years to an arid region on the California-Oregon border known as the Klamath Basin. Bill O'Keeffe was a rancher and diagnosed diabetic who loved his rigorous, physical work. The tough lifestyle, however, took its toll on his hands and feet. His daughter, Tara, seeing the pain caused by his chronically dry skin, was driven to find product that relieved her father’s severely dry, cracked skin.



Applying her skills as a pharmacist, Tara and her father spent years creating and testing various formulations mixed in her kitchen, until, many years later, she developed the basic formula for what has become O'Keeffe's Working Hands and, eventually, O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet.

Now, with the amazing quality of Bill and Tara O'Keeffe's formula, O’Keeffe’s Company is committed to carrying out their legacy—developing skin care solutions that work as hard as you do. O'Keeffe's Company is a family-owned business and is proud to support our workers, the backbone of every American community.

In 2015, O’Keeffe’s expanded their product line to include Working Hands and Healthy Feet in tubes. These are designed for those that prefer tubes for ease of use, portability and cleanliness but still want the same results provided by O’Keeffe’s jars. In 2016, O’Keeffe’s® expanded again – this time into the Lip Care and Body Lotion categories! Like all O’Keeffe’s® products, NEW Lip Repair Lip Balm and Skin Repair Body Lotion are Guaranteed Hardworking Skincare.



I received two of their products a few weeks back now and have been testing them out. I received the Healthy Feet Cream and the Working Hands Cream.  The working hands cream is for hands which suffer whether it be because of the elements or work environment. The skin's natural barrier can be damaged, which leads to increased water loss that causes dry, cracked hands. O'Keeffe's® Working Hands® Hand Cream not only protects skin from further water loss, but the hand cream also draws moisture to the skin as it has many humectant properties.  The protective barrier seals in that moisture, reducing the rate of evaporation. Apply a small dab of hand cream as needed throughout the day. Apply after hand washing, after bathing and at bedtime, as these are the most effective times for moisturizing extremely dry skin. 




When used daily, O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream is clinically proven to:

Instantly boost moisture levels
Help prevent further moisture loss
Create a protective barrier on the skin’s surface
Make a difference you will feel within days

So how did i get on with this cream. Both myself and my mam have been using this one, and even my mechanic brother who suffers with dry cracked skin and all three of us have seen great improvements. The skin is more moisturised and protected than if using a normal hand cream. Definitely worth the extra few euro to get a decent hand cream like this. Your hands will thank you when you get them back. 




The healthy feet foot cream has been a godsend for me. Containing a high concentration of glycerin which is a strong humectant, O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet® draws in and retains moisture, which is necessary for healthy-feeling, hydrated skin. The Healthy Feet Foot Cream contains increased levels of Allantoin versus Working Hands® Hand Cream. The formula helps to penetrate thicker and rougher surface skin on the feet. Best of all, O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream works fast. Most people start seeing improvements in their dry cracked feet in only a few days. Apply the foot cream to exfoliated skin at bedtime and after bathing, as these are the most effective times for moisturizing extremely dry feet.

O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet Foot Cream is a concentrated foot cream that heals, relieves and repairs extremely dry, cracked feet. When used daily, O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet is clinically proven to:

Instantly boost moisture levels
Help prevent further moisture loss
Create a protective layer on the skin’s surface
Make a difference you will feel within days

It really has made a difference to me. I find that as I suffer with plantar fascitis, that if there is a good amount of hard skin then the pain is worse. So i immediately set this cream to use and i have found great relief from the pain and the heel is now lovely and soft. It has to be used religiously before bed for best results. 

Overall both of these products impressed me and I would most definitely purchase these again. These are available from www.boots.ie and selected pharmacies nationwide.
