Is 'climb on' worth trying?
Are there any cheaper alternatives?
Ive been using 8 hour cream, but this has now run out, and is even more expensive than 'climb on'!
I've not tried climb on.
Climb on once a day stops this weird palm drying out issue I've got at the moment. Haven't been doing any climbing.
I quite like the stuff. Lasts a while too.
both made from more or less the same stuff and climb on lasts forever i ve had the smaller pot since xmas 10
Climb on is great for proper cuts but the balm seems good for every day use. Also recently bought a pot of the tip juice which I think is quite poor in comparison to both of the above.
thanks for all the replies. lots of alternatives to choose from. trying the neutrogena at £2.50 for 75ml from asda for the time being...
How can you tell the difference?
Obviously only my opinion but the waxy nature of climb on seems quite good for shoving in cuts etc and seems to stay there for longer. The climbers balm seems to keep hands in fairly good condition if I put it on the night before, whereas the tip juice seems less effective (i.e slightly less moisturising). The latter also seems to be used up much more quickly.
