This salve is making the rounds online with its rave reviews. Its unscented formula proves to help not only keep hands supple but heal them up as well.

This shea butter-based hand cream is thick and substantial, but that doesn’t mean it can’t smell good while moisturizing your hands! It comes in scents like green tea and apple mango. Delicious and effective!

5. Jergens Ultra Healing Lotion

Okay so this isn’t necessarily a hand cream, but it really is a healing lotion!

I can attest to this lotion being the only thing that really helped my hands during the first winter they cracked and bled. No scent and a mild formula makes this a great option for any type of person.

4. SkinFood Coconut Milk Rich Hand Cream

Coconut-lovers rejoice!

This is a more creamy hand cream that won’t absorb into the hands fast but does a great job at its moisturizing job! I know I love the smell of coconut all year round, and having it in a hand cream that will keep me comfortable is perfect in my book.

3. Yes to Coconut Hydrate & Restore Protecting Hand & Cuticle Cream
