Best inexpensive hand cream: Flexitol Hand Balm

Flexitol Hand Balm

As a mum who needs to wash her hands all the time I often suffer from very dry hands especially during the winter.
The only product which seems to provide my sore hands with effective and long-lasting moisturisation and relief is a £5 hand balm from the Australian brand Flexitol that my doctor sister got for me in Boots over a year ago and that I have kept buying since then.
The reason why my sister chose this product over a wide range of more or less expensive hand creams was that it contains a good 10% of Urea, a well known effective moisturising agent, among other skin friendly ingredients such as Lanolin, Shea Butter, Aloe, Allantoin, Vitamin E, etc... (see below).
The new improved non-greasy formula is easily absorbed into the skin and pleasant to use during the day, as well as night time and it contains less fragrance (last ingredient) than the previous one. 
So no fancy packaging here or ridiculous prices, only a well formulated product which really works.
