Best hand cream/lotion/salve for dry cracked hands?

I work in the food industry and so I'm washing my hands constantly. As a result my hands have gotten extremely dry and cracked. I need a hand cream that can keep my hands protected for a long time. I have night time hand lotion gloves but I really don't like to wear them, I'd like something I could put on in the morning and at night and maybe bring to work with me that would work really well.

Basically, can you recommend a hand cream that fits these criteria?

a) doesn't smell weird or bad

b) doesn't feel greasy and absorbs easily

and c) you have used yourself and found good results with?

I would love to get answers from people who wash their hands a lot, as that is the major factor here. My google searching hasn't led me to any promising lotions that fit all of those criteria, for example I'll find one that absorbs quickly but people say it smells terrible, etc. Thanks!

    I use cocoa butter which works really well or E45 cream (NOT the lotion). Both of them rub in really well and aren't greasy!
