Now that the heat is on, my hands get extremely dry. Can anyone recommend a really good hand cream? Thanks!

Victorias Secret Ultra Moisturizing Hand and Body Cream, it was the best I ever used. I've used a ton of lotions in the past and that was what I found worked the best for me. The days I had really bad dry burning hands from washing my hands too much, one application was all it took and it was all good afterwards. There for awhile until I went all organic that was the only lotion I would use or buy.

Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme
Buy Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme & More | drugstore.com

I use several products in the Eucerin and its related Aquaphor line. I miss the wonderful scents from some of the "girlie" shoppes, but those fragrances irritate my skin. Only Eucerin for me!

Wow, literally while I was typing this response, I heard a commercial for a free sample of the Eucerin Professional Repair Lotion. I haven't used that exact product, but you might want to google for the free offer.

Go to your local store, drug store, grocery store, costco, wherever you would normally conveniently shop.

Purchase the hand cream that is cheapest or second cheapest per ounce. Store brand is fine.

They are all about the same.

Sure, one may be 10% better but you pay 200% more.

Cheap stuff will work about the same. Don't waste your money.

Those who will tell you different watch too much TV or are engrossed in too many style/women's magazines.

Cetaphil- the one in the jar not the pump or tube.

I like the Trader Joes one. Works decently well, and is cheap.

I really love this one:
Extra-rich hand cream Apicosma

Not all are created equal. Some don't absorb fast. Some don't last through 1-2 hand washings. Some still leave me ashy. Some don't help my cuticles.

Curel Ultra Healing. It's the only with Shea Butter that doesn't oil slick my hands. It's got ceramides to heal your hand from inside out. I put it on with a lanvendar/olive oil cream and put my hands in spa mitts -- bakes it in and eases my arthritis...

I mix that with the Curel foot therapy cream for my feet.... just love the stuff.

I LOVE Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream! It's very different from everything else I've tried. I've tried expensive stuff from dept stores all the way down to cheap brands in drugstores and generic/store brands. I swear by this stuff. I even have the boyfriend using it, and he hates products that are greasy or have a smell.
I even rub it on my nose in the winter, when it gets dry from blowing it too much. Not greasy at all. There is a knock-off store brand that's I've tried, but I forget if it was from Target or Walmart. But it was pretty decent too. Something about the texture of this stuff (and its knock-offs) that is different from all other hand lotions.
