All of a sudden, my hands are dire .... So,SO dry. I've been using a L'occitane cream for the past couple of days , which does the trick for the hour or so after applying but I need better because I can't do hourly applications!

Body Shop Hemp hand cream is the best. It smells wonderful and a little goes a very long way.

I like Clarins as it makes my nails grow. But I also use the Body Shop Hemp one when my hands are really dry. It stinks abit. But it's magic. I know some farmers who use it.

My hands were in a terrible state last winter, I got a bottle of almond oil and it was better than any hand cream I have ever used. I kept it in the kitchen and applied it several times a day.

Soap & Glory Hand Food is the bees knees for my hands.

Horrifically expensive (it was a present), but brilliant- Creme de la Mer.

I second greenhill , body shop hemp cream is the business , I have used clarins and l'occitane and it's much better than those two.

Body shop hemp here too. It even works on my poor nurse hands!

I hate the smell of the hemp cream though.

Clarins Hand & Nail treatment cream, but also, an amazing tip for v dry hands is to use Udder balm or bag balm It does rather reek though!

I agree the clarins hand and nail treatment cream is very good but it isn't cheap. I also keep tubes of norwegian hand cream next to the sinks at home and in my bag.

I've been slathering on flexitol cracked heel balm and putting cotton gloves on at night.

My hands are beyond the help of mere hand cream. I think I'll get some hemp cream for day though. I hate the smell of it but I'm desperate.

The flexitol smells a bit medicinal but quite nice. I also scored some compeed foot cream in the pound shop. My hands are very gradually getting better.
