I have a problem with dry skin on my hands that requires me to treat it with lotion fairly regularly. This type of Eucerin has been the best lotion that I have found, as it takes care of the dry skin fairly quickly, and unlike other brands of lotion that I have tried, does not have to be constantly reapplied. Nor has it caused any adverse side effects such as itches or rashes. Scent There was not any real scent to this product other than a vague chemical odor that fades very quickly, which is just fine with me, as I prefer to use unscented products. Absorption It does take a while for it to be fully absorbed into the skin without things being greasy. Effectiveness As I mentioned earlier, I have found this particular lotion by Eucerin to be very effective, much more effective than the competition. To take care of my dry skin, I can spread a reasonable amount of the lotion on the affected areas and rub it in, which usually clears things up, as opposed to other products that I have used, which often require multiple applications in order to take effect. Furthermore, a treatment is effective for a couple days, while other products I have tried often have to be applied a couple times a day. Overall, I would have to say that this is among the most effective skin lotions that I have ever tried.
