Best drugstore hand cream?

What's the best drugstore hand cream?

I'm using herbacin kamille soft unscented right now which I like, except I noticed it's the "soft" version. I've used glysomed before and I thought it was greasy. I've heard good things about Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream but I'm not sure.

I need it to be non-greasy, and quickly absorbed. I don't think my hands ever go dry enough to be chapped.

It has parabens.

Is glysomed greasy at all? Is it fast absorbing?

I've never had a problem with it being greasy, but everyone is different. I guess you can say it's a bit greasy. If you're a Costco member you can pick it up there.

For cracking dry hands I'd go with working hands and then glysomed. Lush also makes a really good hand cream for dry hands. It's non greasy but I forgot the name.

I like the Norwegian one.
The original or the fast absorbing?

I don't see any science based evidence that parabens are bad in doses that one would be exposed to in hand cream.
Parabens r also in other products, like, Lubriderm, which one might slather on their body on a daily basis.
