Default Hand lotion for quilters

My hands tend to get dry in the winter to begin with.

Handling fabric all the time just seems to make it worse. Also---handling HOT fabric from all the pressing that quilters do dries my hands even more.

What do you use for hand lotion? I use a lot of Bath & Body Works lotion. But I would like to find something that works a little better.

Thanks in advance for advice!

Bath and Body Works lotions leave my fingers feeling greasy. I prefer Neutrogena's Norwegian Hand Creme (found at drug stores everywhere). It soaks in quickly and doesn't leave hands feeling greasy and does a great job moisturizing. I keep a tube in my car and another in a drawer next to my sewing machine.

I like cheap dollar store Udder Cream
also, Victoria's secret, their vanilla hand cream is the best.

I don't use lotion at all. I guess it's because of where I live. When I press fabric, I let the fabric cool before handling. I never thought to use hand lotion because it leaves my hands feeling greasy and plus leaves residue on the fabric.

Gold Bond Ultimate Healing, or Udderly Smooth... both work great and aren't greasy.
