Vaseline healthy hand and nail conditioning hand lotion. Works like a charm and doesn't leave your hands greasy.
Aqueous cream. It's super cheap too.
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
Try DoubleBase, its brilliant for very dry skin, u can get it from any pharmacy and if its bad enough youll get it free from a GP XD
Superdrugs own one (its pink) is really good, smells nice too.
L'occitane Shea Butter or The Body Shop Hemp one mentioned in the post above.
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!
