I recently began oil painting lessons. I love it! However, I quickly discovered that my sensitive skin would not tolerate the solvents used to clean my brushes. I thought I would have to discontinue my class. Thank goodness my samples of Workman's Friend had arrived and I applied it to my hands just prior to class. Wow! My hands looked and felt smooth and healthy. I had no problems when cleaning my brushes, and as advertised, my hands literally cleaned up with one wipe. I recommend your product for its effective barrier properties and also for the non greasy consistency. Great product. I've purchased 3 tubes at my local Home Depot. Thank you for your unique product.
