    Question Best hand cream

    OK - I have tried a number of different hand creams and so far haven't found one that really seems to work with all the handwashing I am doing these days. My hands have always looked older than the rest of my body so I really don't want them to get too dry and old.



    So what is the best hand cream you've found?

    I use nutrimetics nutri rich oil (the apricot kernel oil one) as a pick me up for my hands. I either put it on under my rubber wash up gloves while washing up (the heat makes it absorb well) or under cotton gloves before bed.
    I have found most of the avon ones work quite well too.

    I use Vaseline pink bottle. When I was working it was the only thing that kept them soft through all the work they did!...and my nails loved it too

    I have just started using an organic rosehip oil handcream from the Kosmea range, it's smells so lovely and has made a massive difference to my wrinkly old granny hands.
    It's about $14 for a 50ml tube and I got it at David Jones.

    The Body Shop hand cream is great! I can even get DH to use it on his rough builders hands and they make them much better.

    I love the Crabtree and Evelyn hand creams - my fav fragrance is the lavender but theres about five others. Really creamy and not too greasy. About $23 per large tube, but it lasts for ages....

    I am a dental nurse, so I've always been on the lookout for good hand creams!

    My number one fave is the Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector. Nothing else does the job as well as this one.

    But I also like L'Occitane, Crabtree&Evelyn and Jurlique creams.

    Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector for me.........

    I get bad dermatitis on my hands, so I use a medicated cream called Dermidex from the UK which is brilliant, but on good days when my hands are not playing up, Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector is lovely.

    I have an assortment of different hand creams, and if my hands are very dry (which they seem to be all the time now), they ALL sting and feel like they are burning my hands. Sometimes the backs of my hands will go all red like they actually are burnt (not even like sunburn, serious looking hot water burns!), and I have to go and literally try to scrub the cream out of my skin. And I have never had sensitive skin like this before!

    The only thing that doesn't burn is J&J baby sorbolene, so I have filled a small bottle of that and put it in my bag too.

    And the skin on the sides of my thumbs and first fingers is so rough, I feel like I need to go and hand-sand an entire car with wet and dry sandpaper! Funny thing, when I was working on cars (body work), I had terrific skin on my hands. Go figure! (Oh, and no fingerprints! )

    I get really bad, dry scaly dermatitis on my hands, especially on my knockles and even my palms get very dry.
    The only cream I have used thats been much help at all is Crabtree and Evelyn La Source Hand Therapy.
    I get in on ebay for about $16 for a 100ml tube, Im not sure what it retails for.
