Introducing a brand new product! Men At Work is a product you don’t want to be without if you work hard! This is a perfect product to buy for the men in your life. It is available for only $6.99 on my website!

If you work hard for a living, your hands are probably rough, beat-up, tired, calloused, cracked, bent out of shape, and hurting.
That’s why Men At Work is specially formulated to work miracles on even the roughest hands. You’ll notice a difference after the first use. Test it and make a “snap judgment”. Once applied, it dries—so fast,
you can snap your fingers right away.
And it’s the perfect size to store in you tool belt or tool box. So you never have to work with sore, rough hands again.
Made with White Willow Bark:
White willow bark has been used for thousands of years in Europe and China by people who chewed on it to reduce fever and inflammation. It is still used today for the treatment of pain, headache, and inflammatory conditions such as bursitis and tendonitis because it contains salicin, which is a compound similar to aspirin.
So give Men At Work a try. No matter how tough you are, nobody wants sore hands!

My wonderful skin softener, Geek Gel, was featured in the September 2011 issue of FineScale Modeler Magazine, a magazine dedicated to the craft of model making!

Geek Gel is an amazing alternative to hand cream- and no sticky residue to deal with. If you use your hands a lot, Geek Gel will change your life- especially in cool and/or dry climates.

Geek Gel can be purchased here for the very low price of $6.99 per bottle!

The testimonial was great to read:

I am constantly washing my hands while modeling to avoid messing up the model with greasy fingerprints. The downside to all this cleanliness is really dry hands that crack and bleed, especially in the winter. Unfortunately, most skin creams leave your hands greasy, defeating the purpose of keeping them clean.

That’s why I was impressed by Mary Ellen’s Geek Gel for hands. It not only softens dry skin but relieves sore muscles, thanks to white willow bark, which contains salacin, an anti-inflammatory similar to aspirin. The clear gel is absorbed and dries quickly without leaving any greasy residue.

A four-ounce bottle can be purchased from Mary Ellen Products, 800-977-4145.
