Applying ordinary moisturizing lotion to your legs before donning your compression stockings can make the job twice as hard, and reduce the lifespan of your stockings.
So how do you keep your legs from getting dry and flaky? Use Medi Day Gel. Witch hazel and menthol cool your skin. Castor oil moisturizes and glycerin leaves your skin very smooth, making your compression stockings even easier to don. Medi Day Gel also contains horse chestnut seed extract, which has been used for centuries to treat venous insufficiency.
Medi Day Gel is quickly absorbed into your skin so there's no sticky or greasy residue.
Leaves skin silky smooth, so it's easier to don your stockings
Pricey but useful..., September 9, 2018 By Anonymous (Bremerton, WA)(Verified)
I have a few areas on my legs that tend to get rash/itchy wearing compression stockings. This seems to help those areas. It is rather expensive, so I don't use it on my entire leg. Stockings do tend to dry my skin, but I put lotion on in the evening, so my skin hydrates overnight. The gel has a nice cooling effect, and feels nice. I only gave 4 stars due to the price.

When I started wearing compression hose I was told that using lotions and creams would weaken the fibers in the hose and they would wear out sooner. The skin on my legs gets so dry and flakey. Then I discovered Day Gel. It has a great feel and helps keep my skin hydrated and also seems to help some of the tired, achy feeling in my legs.
Feels great, but not a good value, June 26, 2017 By David (AL)
This product works great, feels great, and even smells great, but I can not give it a better star rating due to the small quantity one receives for the price of purchase. I find this gel feels awesome when I apply it prior to dining my compression stockings. It has a very pleasant, cooling sensation that last for quite a while. Likewise, I have rather dry skin for which I rely on lots of oils and moisturizers to counter. This gel effectively takes the place of lotions and oils which could break down the fibers in my stockings, but still provides excellent, day-long moisturizer for my entire legs. The smell is unique. It is not a medicine smell. The horse chestnut is aptly named, because it dies sort of remind me of horses. It is a faintly stimulating, natural smell, that is not at all unpleasant. Sadly, my small bottle only lasted a little over ten days and that was with rather sparing use. If this gel was offered at the same price, but with two or three times the amount of product, THEN it would be a superb deal.

My legs are less achy and hose are easier to get on. I recommend it for the cool sensation if for no other reason.

Dries up the leg irritations and works very well with prescription from Dr.
Leaky, but loved, May 10, 2015 By Jill (West Boylston, MA)
I loved this, but the bottle I received had a split at the seam and so most of it leaked out. The worst part is that this tube is so small as it is. However, what I salvaged was great.

I bought this product for my brother who wears support stockings. He loves Medi Gel, so much better than any other lotion. Makes it easy to put on stockings. A little expensive but does the job. Thank you Brightlife.

Excellent product but way too expensive as it only comes in such a small container. Needs to be supplied in an 8oz to 16 oz tube in order to be able to sell it at a lesser price per oz.
Aides in putting on compression hose, which is it's best attribute. As for skin conditioner.....one will have to decide for themselves.

This gel feels great. So bracing and refreshing. I love having something to put on my leg (skin) before I don my stockings to keep the skin refreshed. Thanks!
