@highschoolhoneys: Hi there. I’m in MN- so I feel your pain (and Fiance is from WI) 🙂
After suffering from dry hands for season after season, I have finally found something that really works.
First off- if your hands are super dry, the cream will never really soak in and properly moisturize your hands. So exfoliate. You can make some homemade stuff, which I do sometimes. Otherwise I just buy some stuff they have in the beauty area at Target. I also use Julep Glygolic hand exfoilater.
Then (and this is the best- Fiance and I both use it)- we use Julep overnight repair for hands. It’s $36, but you use so little product each night that, and you don’t have to use it everynight- it should last close to all winter.
As far as creams go- I carry First Aid Beauty Repair Cream in my bag, and at home I have Julep Rock Star hand cream. I’ve tried so many different things- and the items I have mentioned are mostly natural, and actual penetrate + work, and aren’t gross-greasy (super important to me.

@highschoolhoneys: I usually use Jergens, but that’s just for everyday stuff.
If you have really dry hands and you can’t make that go away no matter how much cream you use, I would try Eucerin. It’s much more expensive, but it’s pretty intense. I use it sparingly and at times when my hands are the driest. I would recommend it.

@highschoolhoneys: Can’t go wrong with L’Occitane! I love the big tube for at home, but the small ones are great for in your purse, in the car, at work, etc. etc.

@arielmerms: I’ve recently picked this up and am loving it too. The harsh Canadian winters kill my hands but this really seems to be helping

I swear by the Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve – have been using it for years, and have tried cheating on it on numerous occasions with Neutrogena, Burt’s Bees etc., but always end up coming back. 🙂
