This was bought for severly dry, cracked terrible hands! I have to say overall the best Ive used and also used it on dermatitis on my arms (pregnancy). This lotion does take a few to soak in and the only thing I found really unpleasant about it was the filmy feeling left on my palms but goes away if you just wash your palms. If you overuse it you will feel like an oil slick but the next day my hands went from a huge hurting mess to 95% better and looking nice and normal overnight really. I think moderation is key and to only use it on your severly dry areas, if you use it for anything else you may be using the wrong lotion. Its exactly what it say's intensive! I thought the packaging was great pump style and plastic fine with me, and the price well....I could care less for how my hands are thankful, in water alot, great for a mom or someone who is constantly exposing thier hands to drying elements cold weather, and water.
This stuff is greasy! I think it works great, but I want to avoid appearing as though I've been dipped in baby oil.
While this lotion was better than the Eucerin Original Moisturizing Lotion and Creme, this lotion was still pretty insufficent. It was oily on my hands for a long time. And then it wasn't all that hydrating so my hands were still rough, cracked, and scaly after the oily appearance faded. Not worth the $7/8oz.

I love this! I use the unscented lotion and I use it all over, even on my face. In fact, after applying at bedtime, my skin is still moist in the morning. It is good stuff for using overnight, as it really has time to soften. Great for dry skin. Yes, it does feel a little greasy, but it works!
I think Eucerin is one of the best products you can use for severely dry skin. I live in NJ where our winters get frigid, and starting around now, my skin gets fairly dry. It is a bit greasy, which is a feeling I hate, so I don't use it too often -- it's not my go-to product for a daily lotion, but rather as a fix for horrible dryness.
It has a really greasy feeling. It would probably work better in the winter, but it's too greasy and sticky for use in the summer. It even gives a greasy shine on my legs.
There's a review for the creme...so hey why not for the lotion. I recently repurchased this for the first time in several years. Jergens Skin Smoothing Lotion used to be a cheaper alternative..and while not as good as this stuff did the job enough that I continued to repurchase. Jergens then had to go be asses and reformulate and now I refuse to buy the stinky mess they call the Skin Smoothing lotion.
At any rate...I found myself totally excited when at Walmart I discovered they were now selling smaller 4.2 oz bottlesof the Intensive Repair lotion for around $4 instead of the larger bottles for $10-$12. Sure it's worth every penny, but I like to buy the smaller sizes of this stuff because I only use it on my legs and it doesn't take much at all.
I started using this when I was dealing eczema on my legs and I was seemingly also allergic to every lotion known to woman. Well my eczema and allergies are under control now and I still love it. It makes my legs feel like velvet, it's unscented, and it really improves the tone and texture of my skin. There's nothing like using a product and seeing results.
And oh yeah...I've also started using this very lightly on my face. Just a teeny little drop and it's working great. My pores look smaller and my skin already clearer. For me this has really been a miracle product in a lot of ways. continued >>
