Climbskin hair repair cream
Rock climbing is not easy. It is a rough activity that sometimes goes on for days, leaving their hands rough and full of blisters. We did some research on which hand repair cream works the best. The cream should not only repair your hands but it should not be too oily or thick after application.
The ClimbSkin hand repair cream is just that and more. The feeling of thick cream on your hands is not enjoyable. Maybe when you are going to sleep, it can be bearable, but other than that, nothing is worse than a thick, sticky cream.
This is a gift that rock climbers will never get tired of as their hands will always need repairing. Plus, it smells great too!

Simple idea and an affordable one, this stuff is the real deal for climbers all around. Climbers are sometimes very attached to their down jackets or their Hard Shells.
