The Body Shop hemp hand cream, or L'Occitane Shea Butter. Both brilliant.

Third the body shop hemp one - they akso do a hemp oil which is great. And being the Body Shop there's always a 50% off and free delivery code floating about.

I used to use a really expensive one (keel's IIRC) but I find boots expert dry skin one brilliant. It's about three quid. And my hands get do dry they crack and bleed if I don't use hand cream several times a day.

Another vote for Soap and Glory hand cream, moisturises without leaving my hands feeling greasy.

Neutrogena foot cream, but it is horribly greasy

The Body Shop Hemp hand cream is like a miracle worker. As good (but not as damaging) as steroid cream. Amazing. One tube will last you ages too.

Have odd hands that regularly get flaky so I've tried every product on the market and should probably get thanks from the industry for my personal investment! Best product I've come across was a Forever Living aloe cream called Aloe Propolis. Expensive but after a few months I stopped using it every day and it seems to have sorted me out. Could be coincidence of course! I got it thru a friend but think you can buy online.

Nuxe worked brilliantly on my very dry hands. I use it after washing my hands and last thing at night, Devine scent too.

Another vote for L'Occitane shea butter, it's just lovely.

PrimalLass Sun 13-Oct-13 12:47:00

Lush Dream Cream.

Another vote for L'Occitane hand cream. I think I have about 6 tubes on the go! It's the free gift with this months Marie Claire. www.marieclaire.co.uk/news/beauty/538743/free-l-occitane-hand-cream-worth-8-with-this-month-s-marie-claire.html

Flexitol hand cream is excellent when hands are v v dry. Or Aveda Hand Relief for everyday.

L'Occitane one too much like Sudocrem for my liking, but deffo worth buying MC for.

Pure coconut oil. You can get it at the supermarket.

Does the Body Shop Hemp one smell funny?

EnchantedBunny Sun 13-Oct-13 13:16:40

Definitely the Body Shop hemp cream. It is wonderful, and has done wonders for my hands which are subjected to daily abuse from repeated washing and alcohol rubs (I am a nurse, not obsessive about hand washing... )

chanie44 Sun 13-Oct-13 13:21:49

The smell of the body shop one isn't brilliant, but is is quite mild. I've been using the foot cream for about two weeks and I'm used to the smell now.

Another vote for soap and glory hand food.

Badvoc Sun 13-Oct-13 13:30:18

Aveeno

Just to add to those who have posted already, nothing beats soap and glory hand food for me.

NickECave Sun 13-Oct-13 17:51:46

Tried just about everything on my cracked, bleeding hands last winter. Flexitol was the only one that really did the job. Doesn't smell very nice but if you have REALLY dry hands then it's the one!
