I find I often don't have the grip I need in my fingertips for many tricks.  In the palm of my hand for erdnase color change etc..  I find I get the perfect grip when I wet hands then dry -- even just licking fingers and drying.. immediately after that they grip so well, but dry out quickly and it's gone in short order.  So I want that sort of grip but for the whole set not just a minute.

Which is your favorite product for conditioning your hands before performing?

I forget which one Alan Ackerman mentioned in the event a few weeks back.  It was some sort of wax or paste or something which came in a round flat tin?  Like with an Irish name?  I think it can be purchased at Walgreens?

After trying many things over the years, I settled on working hands. I buy it in a tin type container.

Probably the front runner is Golden Touch - Ed Marlo's favorite. It's OK, but for me the effect wore off way too quickly.

I also heard that not washing your hands very often is the best way to retain the natural oils. Never a good idea in my opinion and really a bad idea right now.

If you solve this long standing mystery, please keep us posted.

O'Keefe's Working Hands right?  That's what was recommended at the event.  I see so many varieties on Amazon.  Would you mind sharing an Amazon link showing the one you purchase?  Knowing me, I'd buy the wrong one.

Was it at Walgreens where you purchase it? Is it the only one in a round tin there?

I bought mine at Walgreens. I believe this is it.

So is "Intensely Magic" account Allan Ackerman?  If I recall, it was Allan that recommended this and he buys at Walgreens.

Or maybe I got Allan mixed up with someone else who was presenting something at event, who used the O'Keefe's.

Nah, just a hobbyist named Steve Mills. The moniker goes way back.

Got the O'Keefe's Working Hands.  Was $6.99 at Walgreens, despite their web site saying it was $5.69.  Wow this stuff is super sticky! I'm liking it!  Made mistake of putting it on my entire hands.. I guess I need to just do certain locations like the fingertips and base of palm etc.

Getting single card runs so easily with overhand shuffle now.  Really nice stuff.  Now I can in jog by using thumb instead of moving deck back a bit.

A little plain old hand sanitizer gives your hands a lot of grip for a few minutes.
