In number 5: Rosken Skin Repair Dry Skin cream
|Rosken Dry Skin Cream|
Clinically proven to:
- Significantly increase moisture levels
- Double skin moisture levels in just 4 days
- Help skin retain its moisture from first application
It truly does what it claims. It is enriched with olive extract and dimethicone. However for those allergic or not a fan of silicones, this may not be suitable for you. As for me from the first use, I definitely noticed my hands are softer. It is not sticky, absorbed easily, and its suitable for use on body, hands and face.
Price: around $5
In number 4: Missha Moist 24 Hand Cream
|Missha's Moist24 Manuka Honey Hand Cream|
"Containing Moist 24, an extract of Imperata Cylindrical Root, this hand cream provides long lasting moisturizing effects for 24 hours."
I'm not sure what 'Imperata Cylindrical Root' is but this is definitely a winner. I stumbled upon this product when I was trying out their nail polishes. But I didn't buy it at that time, it was too expensive for me. So when I had a date with mum in Seoul last April, I grabbed 4 of these. ^^ It was only around ₩4,900, roughly $4.50 aud. Like Rosken, it's easily absorbed, not sticky, doesn't leave an oil film, and the scent is really lovely.
Price: $10.90 from Missha Shops
In number 3: Neutrogena Norweigan Formula Hand Cream

"Neutrogena® Hand Cream delivers effective relief for dry, chapped hands. This clinically proven, highly concentrated formula rapidly heals dry hands. It noticeably improves the look and feel of your skin."
There was a time when my hands were really dry and patchy then a good friend of mine recommended that I get this. Upon my first use, I instantly fell in love with it. Just like my top 4 and 5, easily absorbed and it's not greasy. It healed chapped hands and left a feeling of a thin film on top of it. Absolutely a winner!
Price: around $7 from Priceline
In number 2: Crabtree and Evelyn
|Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Therapy|
Price : $18.95 for 50g
And the best of the best, 1st place: Ahava Mineral Hand Cream

Price: $21 (at the time of purchase)
You might notice that none of them has SPF in it. That's because I prefer to put a separate non-greasy sunblock underneath the hand cream. I've tried a couple with SPF but I just find them too greasy. It's like I slathered olive oil on my hands. No likey.
