Best Hand Creams for 2018

La Mer the Hand Treatment, $90

Readers promise that this pricey hand cream is „worth the money.“ The „fast-absorbed and not greasy“ cream needs to be applied only once in the morning and once at night for optimum results. „It lasted for me a little over two months, so approximately $1 a day,“ one reader explains. „My hands are very hydrated, smooth and looking younger.“

Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Hand Crème, $18

Why it’s great: „A very luxurious product“ is how readers describe this hypnotic-smelling hand cream. One reader writes, „It is very fragrant, you will definitely be pleased.“ Reviewers also find that the product is non-greasy and „soften[s] hands all day“ with only a drop.

Eucerin Eczema Relief Hand Cream, $19; amazon.com

The combination of pain and unsightliness makes hand eczema a double-whammy. I’m recommending this new formula to all friends who suffer. I“m also keeping some for myself even though I don’t have eczema. It’s a good, non-oily, non-scented option to use mid-day at the office.“— Leah Melby Clinton, branded content director.

Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve, $22; Sephora.com

This is just a classic, hand-saving lotion. It’s simple and it works—and it doesn’t have any offensive scent that makes you regret using it for the entire rest of the day.“— Sally Holmes, ELLE.com executive editor

Ren Atlantic Kelp and Magnesium Energizing Hand Lotion, $27; renskincare.com

The Ren pump is super easy, the lotion is light and absorbs quickly, the scent is really light and pleasant.

Weleda Skin Food, $11; amazon.com

This anecdote is weird, but proves how excellent this stuff is: When I generously shared this with my boyfriend, he fell so deeply in love with its moisturizing properties and fresh scent that he, first, stole it, and second, went out and purchased one of those squeeze-y devices that’s meant to get all the toothpaste out of a tube so that he wouldn’t waste a drop of Skin Food. What more do I need to tell you? It’s that good.“— Mattie Kahn, ELLE.com news editor
