    I’m actually still searching for my perfect hand creme. Currently I used the Body Shop Body Butter (the smaller version). It’s good but takes for ever to get absorbed. My hands get very dry in the long Canadian winters :(

    I am trying to use up my Aveda Hand Relief – I bought it after reading good reviews but it takes ages to absorb and even then leaves a faint greasy residue. It is quite moisturizing I guess but I was pretty disappointed by it overall.

    I like the Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy formula. Rosewater is nice but La Source is my favourite. The Hand Recovery scrub is delicious as well! I also enjoy OPI Avojuice Juicie in Japanese Garden, which has quite a thin texture but absorbs beautifully, has a nice fragrance and makes hands oh so smooth. Another cheap and cheerful is Avons Silicone Glove hand cream – you can get it on special for $2.50 for 100g tube – smell is a bit ho-hum but it does the job!

    I’ve recently started using Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve. Absolutely love it!

    I really like how (usually) they’re heavier/thicker and not so fragrant. I wash my hands so often that I don’t get to see if any of them really work, so I don’t have a favorite or big dislikes for any of them. I wouldn’t call myself a germaphobe, but I can’t stand feeling “stuff” on my hands.

    Best Handcreme i’ve ever tested is L’Occitane Hand Creme. It absorbs quickly into the skin, it’s super up here in scandinavia (Sweden)!! (I bought it in Sephora (Houston) this summer, it’s more expensive in sweden!)

    I love Lush! Smitten or Sympathy for the Skin especially. Yum!
