Hand cream recs

I need to buy my friend a hand cream as part of her christmas present. She's late 40s, quite quiet, not hugely into fashion so the brand doesn't need to be fashionable.

As it's an add on gift, I don't want to spend more than £10-15.

I looked at L'Occitane but a 30ml tube is quite small isn't it?

I need to order online as I don't have time to go shopping between now and Christmas.

Any ideas?

The only L'Occitane hand cream that's good is the Shea butter one and that's £19 for 150ml.

I have the L'Occataine one, a little goes a long way. They have a lovely Ted Baker hand cream, nail file set in boots at the moment for £10

I have a Burts Bees Almond Milk one. Its lovely... i think its about £10

Definitely the body shop hemp hand protector! Massive tube and I think it's £11 but often on offer too

Love the body shop hemp cream but hate its packaging - the foil tube always seems to split on me. Clarin's hand cream seems to be working well for me or Cicaplast for hands is great too.

Body shop hemp hand cream is nice. Lasts ages, non greasy and large tube is £10. It doesn't sting my dry hands like some skin care brands do.

Crabtree and Evelyn La Source handcream. Think its £15 but for 100ml. Very good indeed - pretty sure M&S stock it.

Loving the Roger et Gallet hand and nail balm from the M&S advent calendar
