New to magic?
The secret weapon of countless professional magicians is now available at Vanishing Inc.!
We get a lot of questions. But, one that comes up more frequently than any is: “What’s the best way to get rid of dry, cracked hands?”.
Not being able to properly grip cards or coins can make even the most basic sleight of hand a nightmare. Thankfully, there is a fairly simple solution to this problem. Our entire staff of magicians has sworn by “O’Keefe’s Working Hand Cream” for years. And now, instead of having to trek out to the drug store to grab a jar, you can add it directly to your next Vanishing Inc. order!
This stuff is the real deal! It is a concentrated hand cream that not only moisturizes your hands but also adds a protective layer on the skin’s surface to prevent future cracking—all without leaving any oily residue like other creams.
By simply applying this after washing (and drying) your hands and before you go to bed at night, you can start seeing results in just a few days. You’ll gain the tactile grip and feel needed for all your favorite magic tricks, even in the driest climates.
Grab a jar of “O’Keefe’s Working Hand Cream” now and make dry, cracked hands a thing of the past!
If youre wanting a better grip on cards I would suggest Chamberlain Golden Touch LotionYou dont need much. Use the working hands cream for after work
This cream has changed the way i practice and perform !! Not only does it make my hands perfect for handling cards and objects but it really helped my skin to be healthier ok the long term . I have used it since I have been advised to so and even saw « Jason England » talking about this product in his projet « Foundations »I understand why some people complain about the « stickiness » that might occur . However , this is due to the use of an excess of the cream . You should not consider this product to be applied as much as you would use a regular hand cream . Little tip: start by taking a small amount and rub it on the palm of your hand , from there take the excess and distribute it along your fingers .I would recommend this product for its benefits on short term and even better on the long term .Not only to be applied before practice but in the morning and before going to sleep .
I've only used it for a day or two, so I can't comment on it's ability to RESTORE my hands in any way.I do know that it rubs in easily and (most importantly) has ZERO ODOR. I hate smelling like lotion.It does appear to improve my grip on cards, as normally I can't do a one-handed top palm with just my hands. I HAVE to put on something. So this product works at least as well as my other lotions.It does appear (although not tested empirically) that it last slightly longer than my normal lotion.So in my book: 1. it's as good as anything I have already 2. it has NO ODOR. 3. appears to last longer.I'm very happy.
Is is ok for a moisturizing cream but does absolutely nothing to help me grip the cards and coins better. Is there a cream out there that helps with GRIPPING the cards and coins better??

Matthew asks: I have incredibly dry hands and this is really useful. However, is there any way to prevent it clagging up your deck of cards? After one or two uses my cards are completely covered in the stuff, no matter how well I rub it in.
Andrew asks: I only put a bit on like advised and still find there is a little residue on them after i have rubbed it in well. Not great is there anything im doing wrong.
Jeffrey asks: Advise rather than a question. This is not a product you apply just before handling your cards or coins. Rather, it is a maintenance product. Use it after washing hands (in a very small amount as per directions on label) and at night before bed (I use a little more overnight). This is a product to repair cracked dry skin, a moisturizer, not a “grip cream”.
