I purchased this product today! I am very impressed with the pencil and the gel, it truly is waterproof WHEN it comes to the gel, however the pencil part is really not fully water proof! It did transfer to my hand as well. I believe the price is very steep at $24 and you get the smallest amount of gel product! To get a full gel version you must pay $24 for the pencil and gel combo and then an additional $22 for just the gel. I do like that it is now avail at local stores and not just online only, but for the price... there should be way more product!
