Hand creams...

I too love the L'Occitane and the Crabtree & Evelyn creams - they are divine!!! I was also recently given some Aveda Hand Relief that has been surprisingly lovely to use. The scent is light but pleasant and it's absorbed very quickly I'll keep you posted :-)

I'm addicted to the Crabtree and Evelyn rosewater hand cream! It smells amazing, absorbs quickly and makes my hands like silk.

My favorite is Burt's Bee's Almond Milk hand cream. Makes my hands soft and smell good.

I recently got Burt's Bee's Shea Butter hand repair creme. The smell takes some getting used to, but now I like it. It's spicy and almost medicinal in smell, though the first ingredient is rosewater. It's also very effective. There's shea butter, cocoa butter, and sesame oil in there. And kinds of other oils, but it sinks in pretty quickly.

Best for me is Elizabeth Arden 8 hour hand cream, it has a similar odd smell to the original formula but it's a cream texture. Thick enough to be really moisturising from the first use, but it absorbs really easily and quickly and there's no residue - you can use your hands straight after you apply. You can buy it on its own or sometimes (mostly on planes, but I've seen it in stores once or twice) as part of a set with a mini 8hr cream and the lip balm stick which is another winter essential!

When the weather improves, I might try Clarins Age Control hand lotion because it has spf 15.

^I use the Elizabeth Arden 8 hour one too. But it took some getting used to cos you only need to use a small amount and I would squeeze far too much out at a time. I like Dove handcream too

I love that aswell

neutrogena norweigan formula. it's crazy cheap and very good - it's more gel-like so it's not greasy.

Age Control is lovely, but I like Hand & Nail Treatment Cream from Clarins more, I think. I always had a tube of Age Control Hand Lotion with me in 1999-2002 but then stopped buying it as they changed their formulas on a lot of their products. I know Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour is like a cult product, been raved about from every makeup artist and model for years...I still havent ever tried it...actually there's a Red Door Elizabeth Arden spa opening nearby my home, I am an aesthetician and still unemployed *the economy, no one is hiring* and was thinking of applying there when it opens in the fall.

Oh a new cream I like, not specifically for hands but anywhere, and its also a drugstore product, is Eucerin's Intensive Repair Body Creme.

My favourite was the Le Couvent des Minimes Gardener's Hand Healer, but you can only get it at the L'Occitane outlets. However a good substitute is the L'Occitane Shea Butter hand cream-when I get chronic dry hands, it works the best.

Most of the time though I stick with Jaqua's Raspberry Buttercream Frosting for the smell and softening, although it does moisturize well.

I've tried the neutrogena and I must say, not feeling it. For really dry hands you can't beat the body shops hemp hand protector.

as soon as i saw the title of the thread i was going to post exactly the same thing! the body shop hemp hand protector really works wonders, it doesn't have the best smell but omg it works even better than my previous obsession, elizabeth arden 8 hour creme. The hemp face protector is amazing as well, it gives perfect model-glowy skin, and works well on the hands too.
