So, I picked this up, today, at a small, local, neighborhood type pharmacy run by immigrants from...Africa.  They just said Africa, not the name of a country.  I thought nothing of it, at the time, but, now I think it is a bit off.  

Anyway, I got this hand cream.  It comes as a puck, but, the puck split in half as soon as I opened the lid.  No sweat off my back.  It works great.  You just rub your fingers on it, and, then you rub that into your hands.  

It feels really good.  My hands were splitting open, all over the place.  All along the knuckles, and, around the nails.  Plus, just random places on my hands would bleed.  Anyway, I really liked this product, and, thought I would share.  

It works amazingly well.

I have very dry hands. Have an awful time during the winter. Like you my hands also split open and often bleed. My wife got this for me and it's probably the only cream I've tried in years that actually works in the winter. All the other ones simply don't keep my hands moist!
Recently I tried a sample of the Body Shop Hemp Seed cream. Comes in a tube similar to loccitane balm tubes, must say it's actually superior to o'keefe's and more natural. Smells better and have a nicer consistency, also 3 times the price but clearly a much better product. Look up your nearest store and ask for a sample. Excellent stuff and if your hands are like mine you are gonna love this product

I really like this stuff too.  I agree with snowman; a lot of hand lotions just seem to keep your hands moist and don't really moisturize.  This almost has a waxy consistency and so it takes some effort to rub in, but it lasts and keeps my hands in good shape.

I would also look into Badger balm for hardworking hands. Organic and made on the east coast, great stuff, also believe it or not Filson tin cloth wax, has pine pitch and other stuff in it, great stuff.

I find that a hand cream containing 5%-10% urea works very well for me.  Currently I use Eucerin with 5% urea and Gold Bond with urea.  Both brands have other hand creams, but they don't contain urea, so you need to read the label.

Thanks, guys.  I will look for a store, and, let you know.

I would love to try Badger Balm.  Unfortunately, I am allergic to a few of their ingredients.

I have heard of Eucerin, and, Gold Bond.  I will look for these, at the pharmacy. 

Thank you, everyone, for your suggestions.
