Yes Ralph, I have used both. I found huskers to be way too tacky. Chamberlain's is the better of the two IMHO. Both are glycerin based, however, huskers is really thick leading me to believe that there is way more glycerin in it than golden touch. Go with Chamberlain's if you can get it.

Hi
Thank you!

Hey Ralph

just a quick question is huskers readily available or is it just as much of a mission as chamberlain's , I mean do you just get it at the pharmacy.

Thanks
Remy

Hi
I bought mine at Wal-Mart. I live in PA , and it seams like every pharmacy carries it.

Thank you for the info will look into that and at the same time I'm on the look for a local supplier for chamberlain's.

Is Chamberlain's Lotion the prefered hand treatment for doing
ball flairs, or are there better options? I find that my fingers are way too slippery to reliably complete multiple passes. Is there a known source for Chamberlain's in the US?
Thanks

Hi Justin
My Chamberlain's lotion came today. You were 100% right when you said go with chamberlain's lotion over corn huskers lotion.
Thanks again
Ralph

I don't mean to take anything away from what's been said above; I use True Touch lotion all the time, mostly when practicing around the house. But when I go out to perform, I take a jar of Skinner's Edge Card Creme. I'm surprised it isn't more popular amongst the dry-hand fraternity. Some of it's advantages are:

1. It's not a liquid (no spills);
2. It comes in a a very small cosmetic jar that can be easily kept on one's person and quickly accessed.
3. In my case the formulation seems to work a bit better than True Touch.
4. A little goes a very long way.

I've been using Chamberlains for a few years and it works great. Where do you buy True Touch. And also is Skinners Edge Card Creme the same or a different product. Thanks

Skinner's Edge is a different product; a waxy solid at room temperature. It comes in a tiny plastic cosmetic jar (a small disk that opens) and you rub your thumb and forefinger on the stuff, then "wash" your hands to spread it around.

I checked on line for any local carriers of Chamberlain's and it was said to be carried by one of our local drug stores but alas they haven't had it in years! I guess I'll order it on line!

I've had great success with Neutragena for a long time but this winter has really taken a toll on my mitts and where as it helps with conditioning it no longer gives me that little extra tack!

I ordered this on-line last week. I ordered just one spray bottle (new scent) which was like $4.50 plus a few bucks to ship. A very small order but bingo, a few days later there it was in the mail.

When all is said and done, this is a very easy way to get the Chamberlains.
To see a difficult thing lightly handled gives the impression of the impossible.

I ordered some last week as well and am expecting arrival soon.

I also bought an atomizer online, which is used by women to carry their perfume with them. It's plastic and will fit perfectly in one of my coin magic prop bags.

You know..., I've grabbed myself a bottle to try it out. And you know..., it didn't do much for me and my dry hands. Before Chamberlain's, I had been using Corn Husker's lotion(Walmart). CH works great for me when handling coins. But as far as cards go, I would have to let it ware off a little. I guess Chamberlain's work for most, but for others with really dry hands like I have...there's Corn Husker's lotion.
One for the money...., 2 for a pass..., 3 for a Fly..., and 4 for matrix!

Amazing. For me, Cornhuskers doesn't work because it doesn't give me enough tack! Others here say they have dry skin problems and Cornhuskers is too tacky for them. Man, I must have REALLY dry hands!

The only thing, for me, that works for cards is the SPRAY bottle (NOT the cream in a tube) of Zim's Crack Creme. Couple of squirts on the hands and rub in.

For coins, Zim's is not quite enough. Have to go with either violin rosin or bowler's ProGrip. Sometimes, if I combine cards with coins, I use Zims, with rosin or progrip on critical areas of the hands for coins. Lasts a good long time.
My ex-cat was named "Muffin". "Vomit" would be a better name for her. AKA "The Evil Ball of Fur".

Just purchased some from Stevens Magic. Still trying it out on gigs and comparing it to Grants liquid.
