This Eucerin foot creme is one of the very few I have used and can honestly say I trust and love! Scent I was introduced to this brand by my Grandmother, who is allergic to almost ALL scents, mild or not. She uses this because it has no scent. I suppose the only scent it has is the typical lotion smell. Absorption I use this after a shower when my skin will really absorb it and within seconds, it absorbs. I have very dry, cracked feet and it sucks this creme right up! I have used it on the tops of my feet as well, which are not dry, and even then it absorbs quickly. Effectiveness I use this creme after showers and sometimes even at night. I will lather my feet up before bed and put socks on so it won't be messy. The next morning, my feet are much softer and the cracks are healed for the most part. If I use this every day I noticed my feet are 10 times healthier looking and feel much better. It's also a nice product to have if you are going bare foot or in sandals because it does not leave a stickiness behind like some other products.
