This product WORKS. Like MAD.
My first encounter with this was when I was having livescan processing. The man who was doing my fingerprints on the machine was shaking his head, and was like, "This is no good, your hands are too dry." I am not kidding. My hands have been like this since before I even knew that hands were supposed to be soft. In between a mortified laugh and confusion on what I was supposed to do about it, he rummaged through his stash of bottles and then he gave me this atrociously cheap looking plastic bottle with yellow detailing. "Corn Huskers Lotion". Another mortified laugh. So my hands are like a corn huskers'? No offense to corn huskers out there, I am sure you are doing a marvelous job. But really?
But then, people were piling up behind me, and I knew I just had to suck it up and apply the suspicious product on my hands to get the job done.
It had a funny feel to it when I first applied it, it was like, runny lubricant. No kinky thoughts, I am implying lubricant for it's medical purpose, not the bedroom use for it. But then it became sticky, kinda like gel drying on your hands, and then suddenly it dried. And my hands were so soft! O_O
I involuntarily blurted, "This is magical!" To the amusement of the fingerprint guy.
To cut the long story short, I bought two from CVS on an offer of 2 for $6.
I've read that some people use it for the whole body and some even on their FACE! But I only use it for my rough hands, rough feet (comes with the territory) , knees and elbows.
I have one in the car and in the bathroom.
They never felt better. And with so little and natural chemicals! And it's water based!
Great and effective product
Smell is not old smelling at all (as I've seen in other reviews) It smells like baby shampoo actually. That Johnson and Johnson baby shampoo? Remember that nostalgic scent? I would know, I clean my make-up brushes with it. LOL
Packaging... I gave it a 1. It is honestly atrocious. Well what do you expect, it's dirt cheap for the price, and the result it gives. The spout is pretty open, no pump, but the screw on cap is pretty secure. No worries, I'm just gonna transfer it to my used up pump bottle of facial wash. ^_^
I highly recommend it. IF you're just gonna use it for it's intended purpose, and not use it on your FACE and expect stellar results, I think you're gonna be satisfied. Pleasantly surprised actually. Well in my case, amazed and happy. ^_^
Good luck girls!

After a few days of giving this one a try, I believe I found my HG in hand lotion. And I have tried just about everything - cheap stuff, expensive, the commercial stuff you might find at some craft fairs or such, stuff you get in the related chain stores, department stores, online... you see where I'm going with this. I stay at home and do all the cleaning, take care of 4 pets (3 cats and a dog), am kinda phobic about germs, and am a musician who works with valuable vintage equipment, so I'm constantly washing my hands. Needless to say, my hands get so dry and are so sensitive that they crack and bleed at times, and get kind of rashy n' itchy - especially in the winter - and well, that really can hurt. Most of these "effective" or "miracle" hand creams are nothing more to me than heavy scented grease - and I do alot of cooking too - so if my hand cream feels like my cooking oils...I don't find that very pleasant - in fact I absolutely can't stand greasy feelings of any kind - I don't even care to have any massage oil on me for very long. Now THIS lotion is something different - no joke - at least for me personally - I put it on and it was like this instant transformation, that I couldn't stop looking at and feeling my hands - I went to bed, got up and my hands were still soft and nice, which never happens for me. I use I think about a nickle sized amount maybe and that seems to do the trick. The smell isn't unpleasant - it's definitely it's own scent - I don't know that I would relate it to old ppl though, b/c well, when I think of that, I usually associate it with heavy "White Shoulders" or some kind of other powder-scented type perfumes and pee-pants - just telling the truth - like that's always the smell at some of these restaurants - especially free pie day @ Baker's Square, which kinda sucks b/c I really like free pie day :/ But, point is, I don't recall ever smelling this lotion at any of those times. My husband actually thought we should try it b/c someone recommended it to him and he likes it too. I guess we'll have to see what my Mother-in-law's verdict is when we have her try it - as she is a custodial worker and you can imagine the toll that takes on her hands - needless to say, she is very skeptical with these hand lotions as well.

I am really enjoying this as a facial moisturizer. Also really enjoying the very reasonable price, although not the packaging so much. I have a pump bottle I pour it into. The texture of the stuff is kind of gooey and nasty, but to be fair, so is Oil of Olay; but Corn Huskers is oil-free. I love that I can put this on my face, rub it in, and in five minutes it's all soaked in and I can put on my makeup over it.

After many expensive trials of hand creams I found the best in one of the "old standards." My grandma used this!
If I apply a thick coat of Corn Huskers lotion to hands, rub in, then apply a layer of Aquaphor over it at bedtime. You may or may not put on thin cotton gloves to keep it off the bed sheets. In the morning your hands will feel like they have had an expensive salon treatment. Smoth soft hands.

This product is amazing! My boyfriend and i went to the beach and made a mistake by not putting on sun screen...we both got the worst sun burns, and who would have guessed this weird/strange liquid of a lotion would heal our sunburns within a week!!! No pilling, no itching, and no burning!! It just made our skin silky smooth without any oily after-feeling.
Oh and I experimented with it by putting a little bit my hair after a shower while it was still wet...weird huh? It gave my hair a shine and a smooth feel without an oily look!
Whoever invented this...THANK YOU!
You can practically use this for anything...(but don't eat it = P, i don't think thats safe)

This stuff is great! I use it on my feet, and it feels so good. It absorbs into the skin with no greasiness. Makes my feet soft and it smells good so my feet smell good too! My husband uses it on his hands and afterwards his hands are nice and soft. Love it!

This product has the appearance and texture of a sex by-product. The star of the formula is the glycerin. It goes on as a weird texture that turns sticky for maybe a minute and then completely absorbs into my skin. Once it absorbs I feel no residue, no oil, nothing but my skin feels moisturized and relieved. Another complaint I have is that it smells like old people. However, the smell does not last long and is easily overcome by other fragrances. If you can overcome the strange appearance, brief stickiness, and grandma scent, then this is a very hard-working product for the money. I put it all over my legs every time I shave them and it works wonders for my alligator like skin.

A gel that dries matte, and has light, pleasant but not overwhelming fragrance. This is unique in that I can put a layer on my feet, let it dry, then walk greaseless in my shoes for the rest of the day. Also it is a great no-brainer hand lotion when I do not want slippery hands or a heavy fragrance. There is nothing else like this out there, especially for the price!!!! (The closest thing I can think of are the baby oil gels, which are much greasier and cost more as well. If you really want sheen, those are worth a try as well. I think they are both J &J products.)

I've been neglecting my beauty routine lately, and my feet are showing it the worst. A pumice stone, sanding files, and putting lotion/Vaseline on under socks did NOTHING to help the dry patches. I saw this on sale for $2.99 and, wow, I'm glad I took a chance! I've seen it around for years, but never bothered to try it, but after 2 days you can't see any dryness on my feet (a miracle), and my poor cuticles look better than they have in years. I've never seen anything that moisturized so well, certainly nothing that didn't leave a greasy film behind. This is a gel, and it will pill like a gel if you use too much, that isn't a complaint but it is the only downside to it (I usually love to pile on lotions).
ETA: January 19, 2009--Still loving this. My feet stay smooth for days, and I rarely have to put it on. I've never seen anything like it. My nails are growing like crazy, my hands look (and feel) so nice. Great stuff, hopefully they won't change the formula!

I really like this slick, weird lotion. It's sort of...translucent, almost gel-like. Sort of a cloudy glycerin texture. It moisturizes without being greasy or oily. It's three bucks and change at Walmart.

The only plus for this one is the smell which is very nice and light. Otherwise, this "lotion" (which looks and feels nothing like lotion, more like something else I can't mention) is runny, and thin, and doesn't moisturize for beans. Also, it leaves your skin all sticky. This seems like something really old people use just because they're used to it and they don't want to try new fangled stuff.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
Wow, I must be missing something. I tried this out based on the good reviews here, and I don't see the draw. The packaging sucks, and the product doesn't seem to moisturize at all. In fact, my skin feel drier after I use this. (??)

All I can say is this stuff works. I had seen in stores from time to time over the years. Between the bottle and the name it seemed like such a throwback, like the product that time forgot. I had always assumed it was just some cheap, low quality product. A coworker recommended it to me, so I figured why not. My hands were very dry, red, scaly,and cracked. Sometimes they itched so bad it was unbearable. After three days Corn Huskers almost completely cleared up my hands. Not bad considering it usually takes a prescription treatment to clear up my hands. It has a light scent, and the texture is unlike anything else, but it works.

Corn huskers demolishes all other lotions for hands and feet. It provides instant relief for dry cracked skin. It smooths out the dry patches and seems to provide a seal of protection. My skin becomes baby soft. Once I apply it, I don't have to reapply and reapply as I do with everything else. I love this stuff. HG, definitely. I was introduced to Corn Huskers by a chef friend with hands abused by the kitchen. Once I overcame my reluctance to try a $3 bottle stocked on the bottom shelf of Cheap-O-Mart, I became a loyal convert. Creme de la Mer, *pft*.

Another personal-care staple at my house that we will never be without. This is a good, solid, all-purpose moisturizer without a ton of fragrance, oil, and weird stuff in it. It works, if you have the patience to rub, and rub, and rub.

I used Corn Huskers as a teenager, which I bought at the Revco next to my first job. When I changed jobs, I no longer had easy access to my Revco and was lured away by fancier lotions. (Wow, I'm dating myself...) Fast forward: recently, my hands became very bad. I noticed my mom, who is a cashier, had begun using Corn Huskers. She has horribly dry skin, and since she works in a grocery store, she washing her hands a lot, which doesn't help matters... I've seen a real difference in her hands when she uses it, and I can tell when she has run out, because she hates greasy stuff and goes back to using nothing until she gets more! And as for me? I had forgotten how wonderful the stuff is. It's fast-absorbing, and it works. My skin loves it, and it feels great going on. Why oh why have I wasted so much money on more expensive products that just don't work as well?

All I'm going to say is EWWW GROSS!! No Thanks!

This is my new found secret happy product *L* I remember this stuff at Key Pharmacy when I was like 7, it has clearly stood the test of time...even though I'm not THAT old hah, but I imagine it was around before I was. It always seems to be on the bottom shelves, away from the products one typically looks at first.
I never even picked up a bottle of this stuff before my initial purchase. It just never appealed to me. Blah packaging. Weird name. Ah, but quite a gem hiding inside! I also always imagined it to be some greasy oily mess just by looking at it. I mean it looks like it would be right? Well what made me take another look at all at this was they recently added a "oil free" label on it. Immediatly I was drawn in...I mean I was quite surprised to find that something I always assumed to be a greasy oily mess was actually oil free. So that is what I get for not further investigating a product I guess.
So I purchased. For around 3 bucks at Walmart. And it was love. The texture took some getting used to, but once it had sunk in fully..my skin felt soft and moisturized all day long. And I love the fresh clean smell that lingers on my skin but doesn't overpower any other fragrance if I decide to wear perfume or some scented lotion that day. There is also virtually nothing in this product to irritate my sensitive skin either. In fact I'm toying with the idea of trying this out on my face, heh. And I've also found another use for it...putting the smallest amount ever on my eyeshadow brush to seal in glitter shadows or otherwise super shimmery shadows. And it works quite well, just as long as you don't get it in your eyes, b/c clearly..that would be bad!
Great find and I wish I would have tried sooner!

Odd texture, due to the glycerin, I think. It's really runny and doesn't absorb quite as quickly as I'd like, but it's not bad. Has a light, fresh cologne sort of fragrance that goes away fairly quickly. I think the packaging fits with the product, but it's still not the most attractive thing. I think this is okay if you don't have particularly dry skin, but I found this didn't do much for my parched hide. I will stick with my body oils for real moisture.

This is an ugly bottle and the name just turns you off 'cause it makes you think u're putting oil on your hands...yuck! Well I heard good reviews for this lotion so I decided to give it a try and wow it's amazing! I hate the greasy feeling of lotion on my hands and how it takes a while for it to dry. This goes on fresh and dries fast! It softens my hands and the best part about it is that it doesn't feel greasy at all! Love it.
