I bought dh Burt's Bees ResQ ointment. He uses it before bed and it is helping. He works outside and his hands get all dry and cracked in the winter. I have also been using it on my hands and feet at night.

I found a lotion called SewSoft.....lotion for busy hands. It is formulated for quilters, crafters, sewers and knitters. It is very light, and non-greasy. Also non-staining. You can apply it often, if needed, while you are knitting or crocheting. I discovered it while taking a smocking class. I think I got it at Joann.

I really like Curel ultra healing. It's thick, but soaks in quickly and leaves my hands feeling really silky.

I feel your pain, besides having dry skin I work in a hospital so am constantly washing my hands. I try everything but my old reliable is called DML cream. For a lighter everyday body lotion, I use something called SKIN TRIP that I found at my alternative grocery store.

I am an accountant - and recently we had one of these guys want to hire us. We declined. They are all Israeli nationals - and they bring their people in to work. That part is all good - but they pay their employees under the table - which my firm naturally cannot support.
He told us how much they pay for their miracle stuff - the mark up is absurd. BTW - I also have been accosted and have the very same kit....the cuticle oil is indeed the best part. The rest is eh average.
