Aquaphor is excellent (we've been using it on my 5 year-old nephew's area under his mouth where he licks all the time!!!) and Neutrogena's concentrated formula works well, too. My kids are working with clay and paint right now, so I'm constantly washing my hands and running back to my office to apply Neutrogena! My hands feel fine right now...I guess it works!

"Aquafor" is excellent for cracked dry skin. Very therapeutic. Buy it
at a drug store. It really restores moisture to dry skin if you use it
regularly. It works great on extra dry cracked heels if you put it on
at night and put socks over it to sleep in. Or put it on under socks in
the daytime. Within a week your skin will improve a thousand percent!
It's greasy, but it's worth it if you have excema or just verydry skin.
I would think that if you used regular cuticle balms and lotions during
the day and aquaphor at night on your hands, it would really turn your
hands around quickly. Why in the world would Efferdent have a good
effect on your hands??? Interesting.
