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).
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 it...it'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 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.
