I used to get this (until I just couldn't find it in local stores anymore) and it was awesome stuff.

Gold Bond Ultra or Ultimate. I worked in the yard all weekend, raking ten million pounds of leaves and my hands were literally shredded. Gloves? What are those? I slathered on my trusty Gold Bond last night, slipped socks over my hands and they're almost as good as new today. When I say "slather", I really mean it. I don't rub it in. I put maybe a large marble size glop into each hand, rub it around some then pull the socks on. If they don't feel all goopy, then I squirt more in and squish it around inside the sock. Weird, yes. Effective, yes!

Ok, everyone here is going to laugh, but I swear by Udder Balm. I use if for everything from dry hands to those rough patches you get on your heels in the summer. Pretty good for horses, too. ;)

Carona: Original Lanolin-Rich Ointment. I use this stuff. It can be greasy so I put baggies over my hands at night if I have to put it on thick. Mostly I put it on and rub it in before bed. My knuckles don't crack too badly but my fingertips beside the nail bed will crack and bleed. This stuff works quite well!

Any recommendation for chapped lips?! I smiled last week and they split a little and they were bleeding a bit. I use burts bees but that doesn't seem to help with this really bad stuff.

Olive oil.

It's nasty and greasy, but it works.

Rub it into your hands right before you go to bed, and lightly pat with a towel, so they're not drippy, and by the next morning they feel great again. It soaks in pretty quickly.

If you're not up for that, Aveeno is really gentle and nice. I just find I have to put it on a couple of times to fully get my hands feeling normal again.

Bag Balm. Great stuff for seriously chapped hands.

If they're not as bad, I use anything with shea butter in it. Stuff seems to absorb better than a lot of the alternatives.

I have eczema and I use Hydro-cortisone cream - it works wonders! :)

I actually have my best results with Chap-Stik. I never go anywhere without it and apply it as necessary. My mom swears by Carmex, but I cannot abide the smell or taste of that stuff.
