I love everything made by this company. When I go to the store I slather myself in every sample they have then I spend a fortune on a small tube of hand cream that I would beat someone over if they used it without my permission. I guess I reeeeeeeaaaaaally like them.
I'm sort of bummed that you didn't try one of my favs Cetaphil's Therapeutic Hand Cream (with shea butter) - note this is not the same as their moisturizing cream. I think it soaks in quickly and don't find the fragrance overwhelming. Another one I've enjoyed is Neutrogena's Buttercream lotion (in a tube). Oddly enough it feels watery at first, and soaks in quickly. But you have to be okay with smelling like cake for a bit.
Actually I have a new fav but it is a locally produced item and I haven't used it long enough for a sure recommendation.
