my hands dry out easily and seem to benefit from some rehydration after climbing. Has anyone got any experience or suggestions of products to use for this?

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'!

cheers

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.

In reply to genericflipper: I find Climb On great! It sounds expensive but the little ball of wax last forever! I also use it if i cut or graze my hands, seems to help it heal.

I rate this stuff: http://www.climbersbalm.com/

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.

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.
