I love L’occitane shea hand cream.  It’s really moisurizing and not too greassy.  It is a little on the expensive side though.

@highschoolhoneys:  I’m a really big fan of Avon, Vita Moist.  It gets super cold in New Brunswick (where I used to live) and I found this stuff did a great job.  It’s really inexpensive, not greasy and it absorbs fast.  Love it.

@highschoolhoneys: I love the Bath and Body Works Shea and Cashmere hand cream from their True Blue line. It absorbs into the skin really quickly, and it smells amazing! It’s not too expensive and lasts forever!

Biotherm “biomains” if you can get it where you are. Anti aging, nail nourishing, everything.

@Bazinga:  +1 to L’occitane. Amazing stuff.

Also check out Sabon NYC. Their stuff is beyond amazing. The petchouli, lavender and vanilla scent smells incredible and so soft.

I love the Mary Kay 3 step hand cream set and I find the Glysomed stuff works really well for me too.

Another vote for L’Occitane.  My personal favorite is the Verbena Ice Hand Gel.  There is ABSOLUTELY no greasiness with this one and it smells nice 🙂

@Westitude Hows the smell on that hand gel? I had to switch the cream to shea butter because the lavender scent was too strong and gave me headaches.

Clinique has an amazing hand cream that isn’t greasy.  I swear by it, but it’s liek $18 a bottle, and they aren’t huge bottles.

I also really like Bath and Body Works “Look Ma, New Hands” – but its super thick and greasy, so I only use it at night with exfoliating gloves so I don’t ruin things.

@ScottishMrs:  I love Glysomed too! It works really well (: Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of the smell, but I ignore that part since it’s such an effective moisturizer aha

@highschoolhoneys:  Hello fellow Wisconsinite!  I hear you on being dry; my hands typically get so dry they crack and bleed, if I’m not regularly moisturizing.  I love:

1.  Neutrogena Norwegian formula (unscented).  Sure, it kind of looks like spooge, but it works wonders.  A little goes a long way and it’s usually under $5 a pop.

2.  The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector.  Smells like a hippie, but is so nicely moisturizing.  It’s on a really good sale right now; $10 a tube.

The True Blue Spa hand creams from Bath and Body works are good, too.

I also use my own homemade soap, which is very gentle on my skin, instead of body wash or commercially made soaps, which are actually typically detergents (AKA way harsh on your skin).

And lastly, hot showers make for dry skin.  I love super hot showers, though, and when it’s 10 below they’re just not something I’m willing to give up.

Oh @DomesticDiva I forgot about the Neutrogena (I have some on my desk even!) I use that too, it’s unscented, rubs in well, non-greasy & affordable.

I still like my shea butter too though!
