Good hand lotion?
- 2Jan 24, '11 by Quark09My hands are so cracked and chapped from constant handwashing it's ridiculous. I've tried Eucerin, vaseline, Nivea, Gold Bond; basically the entire Walmart selection. Does anyone have anything that works particularly well? I'm prepared to order off the internet if need be!
- 2Jan 24, '11 by aakrnI know exactly how you feel and for the first year of my 10 years of nursing I finally came across MaryKay Satin Hands. It was a christmas present and wow its amazing! Also Vasline Intensive Healing Hand cream works very well...I too have tried many! Good luck!

Hope you find something that suits

It's more of an ointment than a lotion but if you slab it on before you go to bed and put gloves over it, in the morning your hands will look much better.
They sell a big tub of Aquaphor which you could use at home and little tubes for on the go.
Hope that was able to help!
- 2Jan 24, '11 by RuthfarmerAveeno Intense Relief Repair Cream works well for dryness. Zim's Crack Cream helps heal cracked areas.
Paraffin manicures helped me so much that I bought a paraffin warmer to use at home.Last edit by Ruthfarmer on Jan 24, '11 : Reason: clarification

They have a Shea butter "hand repair" cream that comes in a purple tube. It smells kind of funny, but after awhile you associate that smell with wonderful feeling hands. It's really only once a day--it sort of fills in all the dry painful cracks in hands/wrist. Then I can use any other lotion throughout the day (if it's REALLY dry, otherwise no need) and my hands feel--well, normal.
I just put it on and felt soothed.
- 0Jan 24, '11 by lynnintnI used to use Burts Bees but am now a fan of Palmers Concentrated Cream for less than $3.00 at Walmart or Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream for @ $7.00 at Walmart. The Palmers smells like cocoa and I love it-the Palmers Lip Butter is also great and tastes good enough to eat.
