Hi
Hoping someone can help me. My hands are really dry, starting to chap a bit and i need reccomendations for a good cream or ointment to put on them and where i can get it from? Im on a low budget too.
Thanks for reading

Go to boots and ask for some hand cream. They do cheap stuff in tubes for a couple of quid

In reply to RockAngel: look on line for some Shea butter. It's one of the main ingredients in things like climb on and tip juice and can be bought very cheaply. Great for sore skin without softening it up too much for you next session.

In reply to RockAngel: Best stuff I've used is the Norwegian hand cream from Boots.I think it's about 4 for a tube and it lasts ages.

Hemp hand cream from The body shop, I'm a farmer and use it all the time.

Agreed, it's brilliant. O/H buys me a tube each year...and then uses most it.

In reply to RockAngel: Now then... ive tried allsorts of hand creams over the years and always thought they were too greasy and left you unable to use your hands after without greasing everything up,a few years ago i was told about LOTIL and ive been using it ever since,it really does soak in fast and moisturises really well.
The weird thing is its not popular and hardly ever stocked yet ive found it so much better than anything else,i used to order it in at my local pharmacy but now just buy the big pump dispensers from amazon (miles cheaper),i put some in an old climb-on container and it goes wherever i do :-)

In reply to RockAngel: I use O'Keeffe's "Working Hands". You can get it from Amazon and it does the job very well.
