Help for Dry Hands?

Can anyone recommend an absorbant hand cream for extremely dry hands? After my hands have been in water I can't stand to touch anything because they're so dry. Some hand creams are greasy and don't absorb at all, and others I have to apply over and over before the dryness goes away.

Avon Anew Luminosity Hand Cream!

I've been using this for several years.  I have always had very dry skin, even when I was a teen, and have used many, many hand creams.  Many don't last, and other that last are too greasy.  This one really does the job, absorbs quickly, and doesn't have a heavy scent (I gladly share it with male coworkers). 

As with any hand cream, you do have to reapply after every time you wash your hands.  This is just normal for me now - I can't stand the feel of itchy dry skin.  And I get compliments all the time on my hands, even at 50yo, so I'd say it's effective!

The regular price is $15 for a tube, but Avon often has sales, and I recently bought several tubes for $5 apiece.  I keep one at work, one in my purse, and two at home - one upstairs, one downstairs.
