Malin + Goetz B5 Hand Treatment

No doubt it's pricey, but perhaps that's because this formula is one of the few around based on Vitamin B5. Turns out that B5 penetrates just into the uppermost layer of the skin, where the real battle with the cold takes place and with your skin's ability to retain moisture. It's also backed up with a hydrating mixture of shea butter, glycerin, and honey, which absorbs instantaneously, and a pleasing scent that smells of fresh, creamy almond.
