I love Clarins hand cream, though not the SPF one. It is expensive but have never found anything better

i second that neutrogena stuff.
marvellous medicine

Ooooh yes! If you just want your hands to feel lovely and soft again there's nothing better than Flexitol Hand Balm. From any chemist. Great stuff. If you want something pretty smelling, you can't beat Molton Brown stuff - loads of lovely smells. Mmmm. must go and put some Flexitol on now (if you want real luxury, rub the Flexitol on all over and wear cotton gloves to bed. Your hands will think they've died and gone to hand heaven).

The Bodyshop hemp cream is really good. Also atrixo is cheap but good.

body shop one doesnt smell nice imo

Waitrose baby bottom butter is great. Also Farmers Market hand salve. Would also second Atrixo, Neutrogena and Flexitol. Basically anything with a wax or oily texture, rather than a lotion.

Simple do one that's good for extra-dry hands prone to eczema - it's v good even if you're not eczema-prone!

I got it in Superdrug.

LUSH Helping Hands is the best cream I have ever tried and the only one that worked for me...smells not so pretty though...they've just released a new cream too...Handy Gurana (or somethinglike that) smells alot nicer than helping hands, I'm on my second pot so yes it works, though not as fast for me as helping hands...
Cotton gloves are great but can be a little hot and itchy...Body shop sell them (or they did) as do alot of chemists...
Also if you forget to moisturise during the day, boots sell a barrier cream that lasts all day, its in a tube resembling a hair mousse can but about 1/3 the size, the label was pale blue last time I bought's good if you wash your hands alot, but you still have to remember to put it on! It worked for me but was a bit of a waste of money as when novelty wore off I kept forgeting to put it on...

I second the Clarins one, although my mum swears by Occitane.

the nuetrogena Norweigan Formula concentrated stuff is the best thing ever.

I have very abused hands, between working all day in a kitchen and repeatedly washing them to climbing and covering them in chalk, and the norweigan formula repairs them instantly.

lush one

ADragonIs4LifeNotJustHalloween Thu 23-Oct-08 22:54:56

Bottom Butter is pretty good too

SnoopDog Thu 23-Oct-08 22:56:36

helping hands

Tiggiwinkle Thu 23-Oct-08 23:00:13

Another vote for neutrogena here-nothing helps my hands like it. (Kerry-I have to use Epaderm on my face because it is so dry sad)

L'occitane shea butter handcream, rich and smells really clean & fresh.

I love Clarins Jeunesse des mains

I decided last night that the quality of the hand cream makes very little difference, it's how often you apply it. Thus, one of the cheaper brands would be better as you wouldn't be worried about the cost.

Xérand by Laroche-Posay is the best.
