Balms for Palms
Oft-forgotten, hand cream should be your new makeup-bag essential 


'I WISH I HAD hand cream." That thought has occurred to me several times in the past few weeks. It's usually been en route to a date or a party, some occasion for which my clothes and face had been properly fussed over but my poor, hard-working hands had been forgotten-and the neglect was cracklingly obvious.

Hands. The Cinderella of body parts. Their condition only gets worse in the winter with the cold, dry weather and the hyper-vigilant hand washing. The good news is that the fix is easy: Add an effective hand cream to your on-the-go beauty arsenal (aka your makeup bag) to use when the need strikes. We tested more creams than you can count on both hands, and chose five portable options.

2. Yu-Be Moisturizing Skin Cream

This well-priced, glycerin-rich Japanese cream-that's 100% petroleum-free-is easily absorbed and its medicinal camphor scent dissipates quickly. It can also be used on your face, lips or body. We love its convenient size and quirky, graphic packaging.
