Workman’s Friend: a Spooky-Good Cream

It’s almost that time of year again, where ghosts and goblins start appearing at your doorstep. The sight of a black cat or a spider web take on a whole new meaning and the sound of ‘trick or treat’ will soon ring through your neighborhood. It’s almost Halloween. At Workman’s Friend we love this holiday. In fact many of us already have our costumes picked out.  But I’m sure you’re wondering what does a barrier skin cream have to do with Halloween? In truth, a lot more than you’d think. A simple application of our superior formulation, before you begin any scary activities or traditions does a particularly good job in protecting those ghoulish hands!

Pumpkin Carving

There is perhaps nothing that is more synonymous with Halloween than the sight of a pumpkin. Many family traditions around this holiday involve selecting pumpkins from a commercial patch and carving them to represent a particularly scary scene. However, along with the fun that is often had with pumpkins comes the smell and mess associated with hollowing out one of these massive squashes. The pulp and seeds, not to mention the smell can get everywhere from your hair and clothes to your upholstery, area rugs and even on the dog. To make matters worse it can be very difficult to rid yourself of the pulp and the smell. That’s where Workman’s Friend comes to the rescue. A simple application of our cream before you begin any pumpkin activity will make the clean-up effort that much easier. Our cream works like a protective glove, protecting your hands from the pulp and seeds. Once you’re finished carving, simply wipe or wash your hands and dry them.  Any smell or gooey residue is gone. The only thing that remains is a spooky pumpkin scene.

Face Painting

Part of creating a spooky Halloween costume is decorating your face and body. Whether you’re painting your torso gold to look like an Egyptian Pharaoh or are recreating a day-of-the-dead mask on your face with sunken eyes, you will get messy. From body paint, to glitter and adhesive spray, not to mention waterproof makeup, the clean-up after getting disguised can be laborious and extensive. That’s where Workman’s Friend can help. Before you apply a single stroke of any make-up, rub a dime-sized dollop of our barrier skin cream to your hands. Our uniquely formulation will protect them from the irritants and adhesives that are found in everything from body paint to glitter. Once you’re done with creating your disguise, all you have to do is simply wipe or wash your hands and it’s gone. There’s no lingering smell or stains. Your hands are clean.

Cold Weather   

In many parts of the country, when Halloween rolls around it is still quite warm outside, the cool air has not yet arrived. However, further north some areas already have snow on the ground, where the weather can sometimes be quite cold and unforgiving. An application of Workman’s Friend barrier skin cream can come in quite handy as you head out trick-or-treating. With its moisture locking capacity means the dry weather won’t penetrate your skin’s outer layers, keeping your hands smooth and hydrated. Unlike commercial hand creams which only add moisture, ours prevents a loss of hydration by acting as a barrier. This leaves you to enjoy smooth hands as you unwrap and eat sweets from your child’s candy bag.

One Spooky-Good Product

As you begin to think about your Halloween costume or this year’s pumpkin design remember to apply a layer of Workman’s Friend Barrier Skin Cream before you do anything else. It’s thanks to our unique formulation that we’re able to keep your hands moisturized while making clean-up an easy 1-2-3. If that doesn’t convince you to use our cream, let us put it this way: the faster it is for you to wash your hands the more time you’ll have to eat candy. How does that sound? Happy trick-or-treating!
