Climb On! popped up on our radar already a few times, and since skin care (hands) is VERY important in crossfit, we asked to have a sample shipped to us to review.
They were happy to oblige, so when the sample arrived, we couldn't wait to try it!
Who is Climb On! for?
Well actually it's for everyone, but it came to life developed for rock climbers, but according to their site now anyone uses it, from babies to rock stars.
This product soothes burns, scratches, dry skin, abrasions or any type of skin condition that requires conditioning.
What's in it?
The company motto is "if you can't eat it, don't put it on your skin", so let's have a look at the ingredients:
- yellow beeswax
- apricot kernel oil
- grapeseed oil
- wheatgerm oil
- essential oils of Citrus vulgaris
- vitamin E
Indeed, these are ingredients we understand and can even pronounce! Beeswax, the main component, acts even in 3 ways: it holds all the ingredients together, draws moisture into the skin and acts as a natural water resistant barrier to protect the skin.
So, the test!
It's the perfect time of year here, the weather is wet, cold and quite harsh on the skin. Add a bit of crossfit in the mix and you've got a great set of "test hands".
Unfortunately, it was hard to show a "before & after" in a picture, but after only using Climb On! for a day, the sandpaper-type skin on our hands just disappeared. Our hands felt smoother & softer. Excellent stuff!
What we particularly like about it, is that it's not a cream, but more like a soap bar that you rub over your hands. No messing around with excess cream, slippery hands, etc.
The 1 oz. bar will last you for quite a while, but there is also a mini version available of 0.5 oz.
You can shop online on their site www.climbonproducts.com or purchase below at REI.
