    I’m a huge hand cream fanatic. Always looking for the best ones that aren’t too slick and make my hands feel soft and moisturized.

    L’occitane by far makes the best ones (in my opinion). Very rich and creamy, and your hands become baby soft.

    My new nightly one though is Vickery & Clarke Shea Butter Healing Hand Cream. It’s a brand I just found at the drugstore and has the same effect as L’occitane for a fraction of the price. :)

    I NEED hand cream. It’s not an option. I have genetically dry skin thanks to my mom and if I don’t use cream….. cracking and tightness become my foe!

    I like something thick & rich, yet not oily or waxy. It HAS to be absorbed.

    Vaseline makes a really good lotion for hand & nail (pink bottle) and for the price, it’s a total steal.

  3. I cannot live without 20 different tubes of hand lotion at all times. I literally have it all around me: my purses, work bag, car, desk at work, desk at home, nightstand, kitchen and coffee table drawer in family room. Since I am a product whore I cannot be totally loyal to any one product but I have to say the Jaqua Buttercream lotions have been my fav for about two years now!

    A must-have.
    My current love is unscented, anti-allergic Neutrogena Norwegian formula bla bla marketing bla. You need just a touch and it works like a charm.

    I am never without hand cream.. gotta have soft hands! But it has to be unscented or scented naturally.

    I work in a hospital and probably wash my hand every 10 minutes throughout the day. I am using a cream called “Skin Repair Cream” by Remedy. We use these on patients to protect their skin and it works great. My hand cracked and started bleeding last winter and was cured by this. It’s really hard to find at retail stores though, have to buy online.

    I just never have liked hand cream. I don’t like the feel of it on my hands. But I know my hands could definitely use it, especially in the winter.

    I use the body shop hemp hand protector. It works awesome on me. I also put cotton gloves after I apply it before the bed. My hand are really dry during the winter months, so without the TBS cream, they would be totally cracked.
    I also have a tube of Vaseline hand and nail lotion (pink tube). It’s really nice and cheap.

  10. I use the Neutrogena concentrated Hand Cream (good for 200 uses). A winter-must-have!
