    Hi

    I hate having dry hands

    Ive tried so many different handcreams, and i'm not satisfied with any yet. My hands become quite dry, so i'm constantly putting cream on that dont moisterise them for long enough. At the moment im using one called La Source (hand therapy), it does make my hands soft, but not for long enough.

    Id really appreciate it if anyone could direct me to one that is very moisterising, so i dont need to reapply alot (and not too greasy).

    thanks

    My mum got me this really old fashioned hand cream which you wear in bed with gloves on! It's a bit weird but it works really well. My hands have been a lot less dry and hardly any rag nails since I started using it.

    Try E45 cream-
    works a treat, i worship the stuff- since i get dry hands alot from work, doesn't leave the hands greasy, and after the second or third application your hands are left loverly and soft again (apply it, then wait half an hour and apply it again then your hands feel moisturised again for a good while, then just apply after you have washed your hands, as washing removes the moisture from them).

    Yeah, those L'Occitane creams like paint tubes are good.

    So is Weleda Skin Food.

    E45 works pretty well - my hands got REALLY badly irritated by this soap stuff (more like acid tbh!) and I put it on before sleeping - worked like a charm!

    Body Shop Hemp Hand protector. Its for very dry skin and it works like magic. You only need a tiny bit and it soothes and softens them straight away. Worth every penny and non-greasy (unlike acqueous cream which works but is so greasy its hardly worth it).

    i know this sounds crazy, but my bro had very dry hands that were quite sore, and johnsons baby oil with alo vera cleared them up within about 5 days. it's not that expensive so worth a try

    I have the same one that was recommended in the first reply. I hate creams but this one is so nice, it sinks in and it's not too expensive. It's in a pink package.

    Soap and Glory Hand Food is really good and lasts ages too. It soaks in almost straight away and your hands feel like silk and not greasy at all and it smells gorgeous. It's about £2.50 for a mini tube or £4 for a big one but it's definitely worth it imo!

    Ahh unfortunately it doesnt work anymore on my hands
    it eventually dries out alot quicker than it use to.
