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!
I have to second this! I got one for Christmas in a set along with the original 8 hour cream (which was what I had wished for) and the lip balm stick, and I was really impressed by it. It is so moisturizing and rich, yet dries super fast! Definitely the best hand cream Iíve ever used.

^ And I'll third it Elizabeth Arden's products are AMAZING when it comes to dry skin! Really great. And I absolutely love how my hands feel when I put it on

Personally, I have found that Vaselene Aloe Vera Lotion works the best for me. I occasionally use Victoria's Secret, but Vaselene makes the best lotions that don't irritate my skin, make it sticky, etc.

Neutrogena norwegan formula works for me! love the smell and it's not too greasy, sinks in quickly and if the hands are really chapped, soothes them, they don't burn! and it's cheap!

AHAVA Hand Cream for Men

smells like "pool" to me, but it works well. their "Mineral Skin Osmoter" seems to be a nifty ingredient too.

Aveda Hand Relief, feels like a light hand cream. not too heavy.

else, for a quick, non greasy fix, Vaseline Intesive Care, Healthy Hand & Nail lotion. Petrolatum, i know, but the 8 Hour Cream contains that as well. seems to work rather well, but it might also just be the mineral oil and the silicones on top.

l'occitane makes wonderful hand creams, they keep your hands moisturised and the product sinks into the skin quicky, leaving a pleasant and soft scent behind. They have the original (shea) or the lavender one
