IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO NICKEL, STAY AWAY FROM THESE!
Read my update here. I've definitely changed my opinion of these gloves in regard to nickel allergy.
I'm just going to start off saying that these gloves rock because you don't actually lose your sense of touch! With vinyl gloves, they didn't fit nicely and I couldn't feel textures through them. That ALL changes with Nitrile gloves. I have allergy problems with polyester and other synthetics, but I have no problem with these at all. When do I use the gloves? While I'm doing my hair so I can avoid any weird chemicals in the fragrance, while I'm zipping around the house cleaning (instead of gingerly moving around to make sure I'm not touching items I'm allergic to) and also while I'm cooking. I chop up a lot of veggies and handle meat, so I keep my skin as safe as I possibly can.
They're a little more expensive than the vinyl gloves, but THEY ARE WORTH IT. If you have to wear gloves a lot and you haven't tried these, DO IT. You'll thank me later :-)
