It’s Winter time, and that means dry, flaky skin. One of the first parts of our body to get dry and cracked in the Winter is our hands which is why hand creams for dry skin are so important.

We use our hands all day long so if your hands are already dry, they can just get worse and worse, especially in the Winter.

Plus, our hands are one of the first things people see when they meet us, so it’s naturally to want to have supple, moisturized hands that feel buttery soft and look glossy. That’s why hand creams are so important, but if you want extra hydration for your dry, cracked skin, then you will love these hand creams for dry skin.

Tell me this isn’t the cutest packaging you have seen!

I’m obsessed with this oval pod hand cream.

This cream is great for dry hands, BUT it can be pretty annoying trying to get all the product out because of how the packaging is.

It’s not too bad when the bottle is full, but as you use more and more of the cream, it become harder and harder to get out the last bits of product.

Not going to lie, I like using this hand cream more for the aesthetics and because I love the way it looks in my bag or sitting on my bedside table.
