              These days people look for a product usually by the fancy logos and design of a bottle when really simplicity can mean a lot. When I grew up I worked with my Dad and never thought about the things such as dry skin. I knew people with Eczema Psoriasis,and other problems but did not realise that the same lotion my Dad used was good for all of those problems.

              ** About Corn Huskers Lotion **

                You might be asking yourself what the name is all about. It's not very glamorous, and the clinical appearance of the bottle doesn't do it any favors either. Don't be fooled, though - what it lacks in the elegance  it more than makes up for in its functionality.This product was originally developed in 1919 specifically for farmers who husked corn. Since their bare hands were frequently exposed to cold, dry air and brittle husks, their skin often took a beating. Rough, dry hands were impossible to treat with basic moisturizers, but this oil-free formula did the trick time and again. The result was an instantly successful product that has since grown to become a favorite of working men.

                Very few moisturizers receive the sort of rave reviews from both men and women that Corn Huskers does. Not only is it renowned for its basic moisturizing properties, it's also touted as a wonder treatment for a variety of skin concerns. Best of all? It's not *just* for your hands. It has been slated to help with Eczema, Psoriasis, Chapped Hands And Feet, Elbows And knees, and also Men have used it after shaving to make their skin softer. On top of that women have used it on their face before applying all their makeup.

                This is a waer based lotion that has served its purpose well and keeps on serving. If you have a doubt just try it a couple of times and see. You may be surprised what you find. Sometimes old remedies are better and yhey do not need to look flashy.

I have severely dry skin and am always looking for lotions to moisturize it. My skin is also fairly sensitive so sometimes that's a problem when I am trying to find a good lotion. I saw this in a store once and it was very cheap so I thought I may as well try it. The product does not look like normal lotion. It also doesn't feel like normal lotion. I absolutely cannot stand the texture or the smell of the lotion.

The "lotion" comes in a simple bottle with simple labeling. It's a very runny lotion. It comes out of the bottle clear. It DOES NOT have the texture or appearance of lotion. It's like a weird runny gel kind of. The texture of it when you rub it on is strange. It's kind of sticky until it dries then when it dries my skin feels like it has a weird film on it. It's just weird and I can't stand it, honestly. Also, it has a funky smell to it. Not appealing at all.

The "lotion" does moisturize your skin though, I'll give it that. But I just can't get past the weird texture of it.

I do not recommend this product. It's not a lotion. It's a weird runny gel with a bad smell.

    Effective and economical product

    By 

    from Knob Noster, MO

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    I historically have very sensitive skin and have to be very careful about all of the products I use; I have never had any concerns using corn huskers ; it has no greasy feeling and moisturizes quickly; I am constantly washing my hands which gives them a tendency to dry out but just a dab of corn huskers prevents my hands from becoming chapped and irritated.

    Scent
    I normally can not use scented products unless scented with essential oils; I have never noticed the any scent using corn huskers so I have not even looked at the ingredients to see if it is scented. It is very pleasant to use.

    Absorption
    Absorbs quickly but only requires a small amount so be careful not to use too much.

    Effectiveness
    I am completely satisfied with the results

    so helpful in healing carpal tunnel scars

    By 

    from Kansas City, MO

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    I have been using this for more than 5 months. I had carpal unnel surgery this summer, both hands. I have been using this since the first one in june. I have been using this product since my bandages came off. I am extrememly fair and scar easily, but my hands look fantastic. I'm not impressed with it as a traditional hand lotion. I'm not crazy about the way it feels. it leaves a residue. so I probab.y won't be buying it after I stop using for my scars. I haven't tried it on any other body parts. it is very inexpensive and well worth the cost.

    I keep coming back to Corn Huskers!

    By 

    from Eagle River, AK

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    Because I have dry skin, I go through a lot of hand lotions and creams.  I love the fragranced versions, but there is one brand that I keep coming back to time and time again, and that is Corn Huskers Lotion.

    My husband came home with a container of Corn Huskers years ago.  He heard a radio ad about it and promptly purchased some.  We both love this lotion!  Corn Huskers comes in a rectangular shaped, plastic container.  It's clear with a yellow cap and a yellow label (yellow because corn is yellow, maybe?). 

    It is described as an oil free heavy duty hand treatment.  The side label states that it "Provides fast penetrating action.  Moisturizes and softens dry skin".  The directions say to apply a small amount of Corn Huskers Lotion, and this is good advice to heed.  It takes a very little amount to moisturize my hands, and I mean about a pea sized amount. 

    This lotion is opaque looking, and it has a very unique, almost *healthy and natural scent.  *The scent is a very earthy one.  I love it!  It contains glycerin as the main moisturizing ingredient, and while glycerin is in many hand lotions, I have never used any that give my hands a feeling of relief and soothing that Corn Huskers does.  And it soothes without feeling greasy, it absorbs well and makes hands feel amazing.

    I may have a lot of organic and botanically based lotions in my bathroom cabinet, but I would never be without Corn Huskers.

    Effectiveness
    Amazing, my hands feel soothed almost immediately! Love it.

    Ease of Application
    Easy to apply, takes some rubbing to get it completely absorbed

    Scent
    Natural and earthy scent

    It Ain't Fancy . . . But it's Dog-Gone Good and it Works!

    By 

    from Leicester, NC

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    As a hard working old country gal I'm constantly in our pastures, veggie gardens, grooming the horse, unloading hay and just about anything that gets my hands dirty, chapped and calloused. 

    I also work part-time in the *field* of hospitality.  I work with guests from all over the world and must keep up a professional appearance.  My hands take a beating!  Nothing I've used [in the past] kept them soft. While chatting with our neighbor who happens to own the Black Angus farm behind our property, I noticed he had a familiar yellow-labeled bottle in his back pocket and my eyes lite up!  It was a bottle of  **Pfizer Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil Free Hand Treatment**.** **

    I remember my mom using  **Pfizer Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil Free Hand Treatment **when we were little.  The oil-free, water and glycerin based hand treatment helped soften our rough knees and elbows, as well as my mom's dish-washing chapped hands. It soothes cracked, irritated skin without the oily, greasy, residue most lotions leave behind.  Very important especially if you're wearing work gloves! 

    The 7 fl.oz bottle is very economical as it only takes a small amount of  **Pfizer Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil Free Hand Treatment **per application.  A few day's later I purchased a bottle for myself and have been using it for the past 3 months.  The lotion hasn't dropped below the top of the green line on the label!  Now that's value!

    In my opinion  **Pfizer Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil Free Hand Treatment - **it** **ain't pretty nor fancy . . .  but it's dog-gone good and it works!

    You Don't Have to be From Nebraska to Love Corn Huskers Lotion

    By 

    from Toledo, OH

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    I am not a farmer, nor am I a cast member from the television series "Hee-Haw", but I sure do love Corn Huskers Lotion! Pfizer Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil Free Hand Treatment Lotion (7 oz. bottle) is as strong as axle grease for your hands!

    If you are like me, living in the midwest during the cold winter months sure can make your hands look raw and dried out as a hunk of beef jerky. It seems like I have tried about every lotion made these days. but have had moderate success with these skin lotion concoctions. Until now, that I tried Corn Huskers lotion!

    This cornhuskers lotion is a creamy and thick liquid that spreads evenly on your skin when applied. It takes a few minutes to work this product into your skin, but the little extra effort is well worth it. This lotion covers and penetrates the skin better than anything on the market. It leaves your skin looking healthy and feeling soft to the touch. The lotion seems to protect your skin for about 24 hours.

    It's important to note that this Corn Huskers lotion is good for both men and women. Though the Corn Huskers name won't win any style points with the ladies. This is fragrance free and is a very inexpensive and efficient alternative to fancier named, less effective brands.

    Take it from me, you'll love the Corn Huskers Lotion so much, you just might go out in your backyard and plant a few hundred rows of corn... just to feel authentic and worthy of such an outstanding product!

    Amazing product, it should be a Best Seller!

    By 

    from Venice, FL

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

         If it were not for Copperdan's review of this product, I never heard of, I never would have bought it!  Not only was the review awesome, but is so true. 

         This has got to be the BEST product for my feet that I have to keep up with that were constantly cracked on my heels, and rough hands because I do an assortment of crafts, including baking Skulpey.     

         The first day I used the Corn Husker's my feet have taken a beating from this VERY unusual for Florida Cold weather.  It is still only 50's and 60's.  We usually only get winter here for 3 weeks and high 80's and 90's rest of year.

         This Corn Husker's not only healed my feet and hands, but made them nice and smooth.  It soaks right in too.  I used it twica a day fir 2 days and was literally AMAZED at what this can do.

         You sure can't tell by looking at it, but boy am I so thankful for that Great Review that saved my hands and feet.  Now I can wear all of my colored and decorated flip flops, and not have to be embarrassed by cracked heels.

    The Old Standby - Corn Huskers

    By 

    from Arlington, WA

    Comments about Pfizer Corn Huskers Lotion:

    OK...I admit it, I'm a sucker for the fancy dancy creams and salts and foo foo pamper stuff (hey, I'm a girl.....it's part of the package!) but when the budget is tight and you have to cut back Pfizer's Corn Huskers lotion is simply hard to beat!

    Originally developed for Iowa corn huskers (and if you've ever actually handled grains you'll know that can suck every drop of moisture that ever thought of being in your hands out in short order); Corn Huskers Lotion is an old time remedy you most likely would have found on Grandma's shelf....and it's still going strong because IT WORKS!!  A milky lotion in a very plain clear plastic bottle with a simple yellow label, stating that it is oil-free and "heavy-duty hand treatment." it's still right there on your drug store shelf next to all the fancy labled moisturizers at usually half or less the price.

    It absorbs well into the skin without an oily feel and doesn't leave you with that greasy/slimy can't take hold of the doorknob feel of many moisturizer but it does need to be reapplied more frequently than most other products. Truely affordable in the 7oz bottle my biggest complaint would be that it doesn't come in bigger quantities.
