This is an OK, basic hand cream that contains some classic emollient ingredients that work to restore lost moisture and prevent further moisture loss. It isn’t the most sophisticated hand cream formula around (ShiKai and Neutrogena offer better options) and it is less appealing due to the inclusion of potentially sensitizing preservative methylisothiazolinone, which is best used in rinse-off products.
A variety of external elements, like pollution and climate changes can weaken the skin's protective barrier, affecting your skin's health over time. Eucerin Daily Defense Hand Creme's patent-pending formula with provitamin B5, glycerin and a pH5 buffer provides all day moisturization for hands and cuticles while strengthening your skin's protective barrier against external elements.

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.
