15 Non-Greasy But Nourishing Hand Creams

Cold weather brings with it statement knits, oversized puffer jackets, and – on a slightly less glamorous note – dry, dehydrated hands.

There's nothing worse than a lovely scented hand cream that leaves greasy fingerprints all over your keyboard.

Read on for our edit of the balms, creams, salves and lotions that will keep your palms, nails and cuticles hydrated all year round.
