Working on or around boats requires being ex­posed to the elements and getting into some dir­ty stuff that can wreak havoc on your skin. If you’ve ever scraped barnacles, sanded a hull bottom, winterized an engine dur­ing the colder months, or applied antifouling paint, you get the pic­ture. Any one of these can leave the outer layer of skin on your hands and/or knees feeling like sandpaper by the time you’ve finished.

There is a solution, however. Next time try Gloves in a Bottle, a greaseless, hypoallergenic, nonsticky lotion. It bonds with the outer layer of skin to keep moisture-robbing irritants out while retaining your skin’s natural moisture and oils, turning it into, well, a pair of invisible gloves. I tried it and found that a single application is virtually undetectable once dry, protects skin for a minimum of four hours, and comes off naturally.

The eight-ounce bottle retails for $12.95 and yields 120 applications; it’s available at pharmacies nationwide.
