This is a good though rather basic hand cream whose urea content is capable of providing intense softening of dry, cracked skin. The emollients blend isn’t too oily or greasy which makes this hand cream more pleasant to use, though the lack of sunscreen means this is best reserved for application at night (hands absolutely need sunscreen during the day). Plus Intensive Care Hand Creme is fragrance-free.

Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme is a fast-absorbing moisturizer that leaves hands feeling noticeably smoother after just one use.

This drugstore staple line claims to be dermatologist-preferred skin care, but any dermatologist who recommends this line in its entirety without reservation needs a crash course in what skin really needs to be protected and look its best. There are some basic products that a dermatologist would want to consider, but Eucerin falls short in products to address acne. Further, even their latest products aren't keeping pace with what industry frontrunners are doing in an effort to create elegant, effective products. For example, serums from Olay, Neutrogena, and Aveeno have much more interesting formulations, while moisturizers from many other drugstore lines (including Nivea, which is owned by Eucerin parent company Beiersdorf) include a greater complement of antioxidants and ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin. A major pro for this line is that all of the products are fragrance-free. Although that's helpful for all skin types, it certainly isn't compelling enough for dermatologists to green-light this line without cautions about which products to avoid.

    Almost Perfect
    • Rich and creamy, not greasy or sticky. That's refreshing. I put on too much at first--not too much is need. Nice size tube for purse or travel. If it had sunscreen, it would be perfect.

    Great fragrance-free product
    • I'm allergic to fragrances so lately I've tried a bunch of different drugstore hand moisturizers that are fragrance free. This one is my favorite because it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave my hands feeling greasy or sticky, just soft. I use it at night since it doesn't contain sunscreen.
