- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
As a beginner climber, my hands are being absolutely thrashed by just about everything. Split fingers, blisters, calluses, and super-dry cracking hands. I have been using lotion, it makes my hands soft but doesn't heal the cuts and injuries on my hands. I picked up this repair balm and I swear this stuff is magic. I had popped blisters on both pinky fingers and I had a hard time climbing with bandages. Slapped this stuff on there and it's like my skin just grew an extra layer of hard skin at a super speedy rate. Also, the stuff doesn't feel greasy so you can still do things while your hands are being worked on by the little wizards inside of this stuff. I've been using it mostly after I climb and a few hours before.
