My solution? This amazing stuff:
I'm not keen on the banana smell, but if you actually like the smell of bananas, then you you will love this stuff! A little goes a long way and once you apply this stuff to your hands they will stay protected through MANY hand washings. I've had a 2oz jar of my hand creme for several years now and am just now running out. It's also super affordable- I think it's less than $8 for a jar. Awesome!
