    "Nothing beats Nivea Creme because it's rich, but doesn't clog your pores, and it lasts all day. I like the mini tins because they're small enough to fit in my bag, or even in my wallet, and it makes keeping my hands soft that much easier. This is especially important after I wash my hands or after I walk in the New York cold for more than five minutes and my skin is screaming for moisture. It's one of those small things you're glad to have on you at all times." —Essence Gant

    "For the last decade or so I've suffered with dry, cracked hands that bleed of their own accord. Using this regularly has stopped my hands from getting as bad as they were before, and its moisturising effects last for quite a while so there's no need to keep slathering more on. The consistency is more firm than a regular lotion, and once applied it sinks into the skin quickly without feeling greasy." —Jasmin Nahar
