Hand Help From A Housewares Favorite

Restoration Hardware may not be an obvious or logical place to shop for skincare, but if, while on a recent decor quest, I hadn't taken a closer look at what I initially thought was a small jar of paint, I would've missed out on a surprisingly splendid source of moisture: No-Crack Super Hand Cream.

This really rich formula was created by a pharmacist more than 40 years ago, a decade before Restoration Hardware sold their first knob. After absorbing quickly, it makes skin noticeably softer and healthy-looking, due in large part to allantoin.

And because No-Crack Super Hand Cream is so thick, I haven't limited it to my hands. It quickly became the balm of choice for my chronically-dry elbows.

Although Restoration Hardware's home goods can fall on the pricey side, the incredibly long-lasting four-ounce pot costs a mere $8.
