Wells Lamont Lawn and Garden Gloves Review and Giveaway


Since I am the Mom who Mows in our house I need the essentials to get my tasks done right and with still keeping my feminine feel to me. When I first decided to be more frugal by doing the yard work myself instead of paying to have it done I noticed how rough and blistered my hands would get after a weekend of yard work. It made me sad that my soft hands were getting beat up. I had a pair of old garden gloves that I got years ago but they were for men. The mens gloves were too big and bulky for me to use correctly.



For the Moms Who Mow event I was able to review 3 of the gloves made by Wells Lamont. I loved the look and feel of them all. 

Blister Armor


The last few times I have mowed the lawn I have used my new Wells Lamont Blister Armor gloves. One of my biggest complaints about lawn mowing is the blisters it left and my hands so I was excited to try these ones. They were very comfortable to wear and worked! My hands did not get the normal blisters I would get so I am definitely going to be buying more of these when I need some.

Blister Armor gloves in action!

Product Description from the site:
Women's synthetic leather glove featuring Blister Armor™  LiquiCell®  glove technology.  A liquid membrane is positioned on the palm and thumb creating a synthetic blister.  This prevents actual blisters and next day soreness!  Sewn with nylon thread - seams last longer. Machine washable synthetic leather provides great dexterity and comfort, yet gives you the wear that you need.  Stretch fabric back for comfort and better fit.

Ultra Comfort Suede Leather

We have two big trees in our front yard that are constantly making small tree branches fall onto the lawn. I gather them up and need to break them to stuff them into the green waste bin and some I strip of the leafs to give to the dog to fetch. This makes me need a good durable pair of gloves that can handle the tough branches. The Ultra Comfort Suede Leather Slim Fit gloves were perfect for this. I am a wimp when it comes to being poked or injured when doing yard work so these were perfect for me to clean up the branches and not get my hands injured. I once used mittens to do this and it was a silly and painfully experience.

Product Description:
Women's suede cowhide leather for heavy duty wear.  Stretch back for comfort and better fit.   Comfort Closure™ adjustable wrist for a custom fit keeps out debris.


Ultra Comfort Synthetic Leather

Yard work also lends itself to home maintenance for the outside. This usually involves the use of power tools for me. Recently we had a dog move in next door and I was worried about some of the small holes in the fence. My solution to keep the dog away from my own dog and my son was to cut small pieces of wood and screw them into the fence. It seems to work perfectly. Now the other dog is safe on his side and us safe on our side. Thankfully I had my Ultra Comfort Synthetic Leather Gloves for the job. They helped me grip the power drill better than I ever have. I worry about it slipping out of my hands since they get a bit sweaty in the summer heat working on stuff. Plus they were purple, one of my favorite colors so I looked pretty while using my power tools too!

I also wanted to share a bit of info about the company that I thought was great!

This includes 42,595 pairs of leather gloves donated to assist with the earthquake disaster relief in Haiti among other efforts.
