    I love it cause I need it. I am OCD with washing my hands and therefore, they get very dried out. Using hand cream regularly keeps them moisturized and also aids in keeping my nail cuticles soft.

    I like hand cream, when I remember to use it. Otherwise unless I notice my hands are dry I never do!

    I never use it, I think it’s a waste for me because I have “normal” hands that don’t need moisturizing too often. And if they get dry I can always use my regular body lotion on them.

  4. I like it a lot. I just wish more hand creams came with an SPF.

    My hands are pretty dry so I always use handcream before I go to bed. I’m not really picky about the brand to be honest, as long as the cream is not too greasy and easily absorbed I’m fine with it. I’ve used Biotherm (Biomains) for years, which is a great one but a little expensive. Now I use a 2 euro handcream from Lidl supermarket, which works just as great !! After I’m finished with this one I want to try the Yes to Carrots handcream since I hear a lot of great things about the brand.

    9 times out of 10 hand creams will dry me out despite any claims to avoid the situation. I use Vaseline. Okay, I know some of you may go, “Ew.” But, honestly, it’s the only thing I have used for my hands that does not dry me out.

    Most hand creams don’t work for me, but I do love them when I find the right one which is now between Rocky Mountain Soaps Body Butters or L’Occitane Hand Creams.

    It’s really helpful in the winter.

  9. I always have hand cream. Mostly those that are a little bit thicker, but not greasy or ever watery. L’occitane is wonderful.

    oh in the winter time when my hands are really dry – i love to use the body shop body butters like in satsuma or wild cherry flavors- they are so nice and silky. plus my boyfriend like to use them alot.

    I really only use it in the winter when my hands get so dry they’ll crack and bleed. Otherwise, I just rub my hands together after putting body butter on my legs (I like the Boots ones).

  12. penelope

    i dont even use it i just use regular body lotion for my hands

  13. I would only use it in the winter or on a plane.

  14. Michelle

    I love hand cream, I use it every day. The one I like most is Herome Hand cream daily protection with spf 8 in it!

  15. Lauren

    I never used to use hand cream until I did a course of Accutane and then my skin was SOOOOO dry that I had no choice but to use it constantly! CeraVe is my favorite drug store brand – works on hands, face, body, etc, but when I splurge, it’s always for L’Occitane lotions.

  16. cloudburst

    If they could invent a hand cream that could withstand hand washing I would pay any amount for it.

  17. I get very dry hands from washing them a lot so I use Soap & Glory’s Hand Food. It smells so yummy and it moisterises sooooo good!
