One of the side effects of the cold, dry winter air I see everywhere is extremely dry hands.
It's unattractive, it's uncomfortable, and it's unnecessary.
Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy Cream:

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
This is one of the products I go to when my hands are in bad shape.
It sinks in really quickly and leaves your skin soft and conditioned without feeling greasy.
It has a nice almond scent.
(It used to come in a somewhat annoying metal tube, but now they use plastic)
