I’ve been at Jeff’s for about a week so far helping him after his hip replacement surgery. Now that he can use only one crutch, he’s more self-sufficient but he’s still not quite back to his old self yet. Unfortunately, he doesn’t have a dishwasher. I grew up without a dishwasher, and my longtime New York apartment didn’t have a dishwasher. But since moving into my house 16 years ago, I have gotten hooked on the dishwasher. I’ve been handwashing a lot of dishes at Jeff’s, and I also have to wash out his compression socks every night. It seems like my hands are constantly in soap and water these days.
I’m glad that I grabbed a tube of Parodi Daily Moisturizing Hand Cream to take with me to Jeff’s.
I was not familiar with the Parodi brand of professional care products, but I have since found out that the company is a woman-owned business which is always nice to know. Linda Gillette Parodi was a long-time salon professional, so she developed a line of professional care skincare products including hand creams, foot creams and muscle ache products. Parodi Daily Moisturizing Hand Cream was developed for and approved by salon professionals, people whose hands are frequently exposed to water, chemicals, heat, rubber or latex gloves, and other abuses.
Parodi Daily Moisturizing Hand Cream, a rich white cream, certainly does the trick for me: my hands are instantly hydrated after using it. They feel soft and moisturized. The hand cream also gives me some protection when I put them back into soapy water so my hands don’t feel as dry in between times as they did before I started using this particular hand cream.
The hand cream has a very light almost imperceptible scent from natural ingredients like bitter orange flower extract, sweet almond and other natural scents. Importantly, the hand cream is fast or, I should say, immediately absorbed and totally greaseless. It does not contain parabens or silicones.
Parodi & Cie is a Swiss company, but their products are manufactured in the U.S. My plastic tube is the perfect size to fit in my purse or to keep on my crowded night table, 2 oz./60 ml, though they have a large 9.5 oz. pump bottle for those who go through a lot of hand cream. Because the cream is so concentrated, you need only a little bit so that a 2 oz. tube provides about 100 applications! The 2 oz. tube is priced at $18 and the behemoth is $50, both available on the Parodi website where you can check out their foot care and muscle ache products as well as on Amazon and through walmart.com.
I am having great results with the Parodi Daily Moisturizing Hand Cream, but I noticed that they also have Parodi Intensive Moisturizing Hand Cream that sounds great for those with super dry hands. If we have a lot of snow this winter, I may want to try that one too!
