Customer Reviews :
Their bamboo gloves have received at least 4-5 stars from most of their customers who provided reviews on their product pages. They have a good pictorial improvement of one of their customer who had used the gloves over emollient :
To have a complete hand eczema protection for your skin, it is recommended to apply shielding lotion every 6 hourly and then put on the bamboo gloves at night or during the day when you have to use your hands for heavy dry work activities
However, if you dislike the feeling of a physical barrier on your hands, we highly recommend at the minimum – to apply a “shielding lotion” which serves as an “invisible gloves”. Our bestselling “Gloves in a Bottle” shielding lotion protects and allows the skin to naturally retain oil while preventing flare-up from external irritants and allergens. It works almost as effective as a bamboo gloves in terms of protection from external irritant, but a bamboo glove can provide a physical barrier of protection from further injury.
