Title says it really...i have really bad dry skin on my hands, they are all white and liney in parts and really rough

On my face around eyebrows i have what looks like dandruff!! It is itchy and now my hands are feeling sore.

Can anyone recommend a decent moisturiser i can use on my hands and face that won't make my skin look greasy? Also one that contains no/not many nasties!

i know it sounds counter-intuitive but i would recommend one of the clarins oils. i use one, and despite a tendency to shiny skin it disappears better than creams.

Eucerin. Not glamorous, but fab for sore dry skin. There are body and face versions, and now (joy of joys) even an eye one.

E45 or an Aquous cream neither contains anything that should irritate your skin

I second Eucerin, very good. Also Aveeno.

i like 'blue pot nivea'. seems to soak in rather than slick off.

Ah yes, Aveeno. Absolutely excellent. <nips off to slather some on hands>

Ah great, thanks everyone!

Off to the shops now to have a look at these mentioned!
