With the help of our trusty Total Beauty reviewers, we rounded up the eight hand creams that’ll leave your hands feeling soft and looking young again.

L’Occitane Fast-Absorbing 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

L'Occitane Fast-Absorbing 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream $29.00 1

This product is one of the bestsellers of the brand, “sold out every 3 seconds beyond the world.” It’s highly creamy balm is rich in 20% of natural Shea Butter blended with honey, coconut oil and almond extracts. It’s a winner over the approval for powerful healing and instant moisturizing properties outside any lingering greasy and heavy feelings.

The hand lotion is highly suggestiveMORE and a lifesaver for people who love working with their hands. Day by day, different damage and injuries can silently creep into your hands and leave cuts, scrapes, cracks, dry patches or roughness.

For some reasons, I have heard lots of praise about the product that somehow relieves the mild eczema condition in hands and even,on body. Then, I recommend this to my friend struggling with itchiness, redness and scaly areas. Sounds crazy, but it’s really work!

Gardeners Hand Therapy locks in moisture, intensely revitalizing skin with its blend of macadamia nut oil and shea butter. With each use, hands become noticeably softer and smoother.

Our relationship with hand creamMORE is on-again, off-again at the best of times—we usually buy a tube, apply zealously for about three days, and then forget all about it. Not this one. Despite a history of gravitating toward fragrance-free hand moisturizers, we found ourselves reapplying just to get a hit of the zingy Verbena and Lavender or mysteriously marine La Source.

If you’re a big perfume user, there’s a chance this cream would make for one whacked-out scentapalooza if added to your mix. If not, this might be the fragrance equivalent of a gateway drug.

La Chatelaine 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

La Chatelaine 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream $24.00 1

It comes in a big purple box and it includes 12 tubes of cream made 20% of Shea Butter. Each tube got 1 fl. oz of product and they all look like tube of paint. They are so cute and the concept is really appealing.

From the first tube MOREto the last one, going from left to right, we can find the different scents such as Citrus Fizz, Wild Fig, Cinnamon Orange, Cherry Almond, Lavender, Coconut Milk, Shea, Winter Flower, Rose Blossom, Lychee Cranberry, Pomegranate Mulberry, Amber Cashmere.

I personally love it! I tried a few of them already and I love how hydrating the product is. They leave my hand fresh and smooth. Shea butter makes the cream a bit greasy, so you don’t need to put too much cream on your hand. A small quantity goes a long way and it will get all absorbed by the skin quickly.

L’Occitane Elegant & Light Lavender Hand Cream

The rich texture leaves hands soft and smooth, can be applied as often as needed. Ideal for daily use. Give smooth and soft skin. Leaves hands soft and smooth with no oily traces. Massage this silky treatment into hands to counter dryness as often as needed.

The Naked Bee Hand & Cuticle Healing Salve

Shea butter containsMORE fatty acids that may help to promote recovery from skin injuries. Shea butter may also help to reduce skin issues.

Beeswax may help to soften and protect the skin. It may also have antibacterial properties. Rosemary extract may also have antibacterial abilities.

J.R. Watkins Hand Cream with Shea and Cocoa

J.R. Watkins Hand Cream with Shea and Cocoa Butters, Aloe & Green Tea $8.01 1

It is 96.4% natural, paraben-free, dye-free, phthalate-free, and propylene glycol-free. It is very moisturizing and smells amazing! I put this on my hands and arms before I went to bed last night. It felt creamy and absorbs into the skin very quickly. When I woke up this morning, my skin felt soft and smelled so amazing. The scent is so relaxing and therapeutic. Actually, when you first get the cream out of the bottle, it smells pretty strong but once it is absorbed into your skin it is beautiful.

The cons about this product would beMORE that it is hard to find which is a big turn off for me because I like convenience. Also, I am a big perfume person so I tend not to wear this in the day time in the fear that it would interfere with my perfume scent. If I weren’t into perfumes so much I would love this so much! The scent, in my humble opinion, is definitely better than a lot of bath and body works lotion scents because it is not too sweet and moisturizes much better.

Crabtree & Evelyn – Gardener’s Ultra-Moisturising

Crabtree & Evelyn - Gardener's Ultra-Moisturising Check on Amazon

The moisturizing formula is rich but surprisingly lightweight. It leaves skin feeling hydrated, not greasy, and has a refreshing, crisp herbal scent.

Hands (and nails and cuticles) MOREwill feel soft and hydrated for hours, even after multiple washings. And the energizing scent is borderline addictive.
