I agree with Helen. The ES Vaseline lotion absorbs quickly and doesn't feel greasy, and putting something on before going out, helps a lot.

Quick answer, Joe... Not what you're looking for but the best I've found is
simply that Extra Strength Vaseline Intensive Care lotion.  It's a combo of
pertroleum jelly, glycerin etc., at least it works and doesn't feel greasy
like alot of them do.

The best thing you can do for your hands is apply a silicone hand cream
BEFORE you start your day out in the nursery, to protect against some of the
drying and damage.  I'm sure there are plenty around but one I know you can
get fairly easily is made by Avon - called Silicone Glove.

Does any one have any GOOD recomendations for hand creams to be used
on really dry skin?  A number of years ago I bought several bottles of
Aloe Vera gel that was basically 100% aloe vera gel, except for some
added vitamin E and some preservatives, but I can't find the pure
stuff any more.  When I look at all the various hand creams avaiable
on the market I see the main ingredients are some combination of
water, glycerin and mineral oil with various perfumes and some other
chemicals of questionable value.  Most of these feel real greasy.  At
the end of the day my hands look and feel like reptile skin and the
last thing I want is a greasy hand lotion.  I know petroleum jelly
works well if you gob in on and let it stay on your hands awhile.  I
know some people recommend putting it on thick and then putting your
hands inside plastic gloves for a few hours or even over night.  Now I
know that some one could make a nice bundle IF they could come up with
a really effective hand lotion for nursery people.
