At the store, I was examining a bottle of GF brilliantine shine cream gel (remarking how small the bottle is), and some of it without warning splorked out of the top, flew in an arc and landed on the back of my hand. I wiped it off and put the bottle back, and it's a good thing I did - when I got home, that part of my hand felt noticeably drier than the rest! So, yeah, drying alcohol...scary stuff.

Gel coats the skin and will leave a film that sort of wrinkles up. Probably if you washed the gel off your hand would be fine I'm guessing? Mostly though it won't let your skin breath while it's on there.
