Got a free sample of this mid-to-heavy weight, unscented cream from my local dermatologist. So far no issues to report.

Honestly, I cringe a little on the inside every time I go and buy this lotion since it's so expensive for the amount that you get. However, very little goes a long way so it's worth it. It's worth every penny, which is why even though I cringe, I still go back and buy it again. (I buy the 3 pack available at BJ's which is a great deal if it's an option for you). No other lotion makes my hands feel moisturized for such a long time. The best.

Horrible. Greasy, sticky, and somehow not even moisturizing.

Not the prettiest packaging. It works okay, but it leaves a greasy slick residue all over where ever you apply it and the grease doesnt sink into your skin. It isnt too expensive but overall isnt the best lotion out there.

This was such a thick, sticky creme that it was hard to apply to the skin. Fragrance free product containin urea, lactic acid and vitamin b5 with mineral oil. DId not seem to do much but sit on top of my skin. In general, I like Eucerin products, but this one did not impress me.

This product saved my skin! A few years back, my skin revolted. I got this horrible dry, red and angry rash on the back of my knee's. I shrugged it off as a little rash that would soon go away but boy was I wrong. It spread- first to my legs then my arms after a few weeks every part of my body including my feet where covered in this horrible rash. I went to my doctor and he gave me samples of this cream. I didnt think that anything would make this monstrosity go away, but this did. I was shocked, I bought the full size after my samples finished and after a week or too, my rash was gone! This is a great great cream, really if you have irritated skin this is for you!

I bought this because it was on sale, but I found I just couldn't use it on my body. Too sticky!

But I also couldn't stand wasting it, so I tried it (gasp!) on my face at night. And...it worked quite nicely! I used it all winter as a facial night cream. The stickiness wasn't much of an issue, I got nice moisture and AHAs out of it. No breakouts or clogged pores, either.

I don't know if I would buy it on purpose to use as a face cream, but if you find yourself with a jar you can't otherwise use, it's a decent salvage.

This is the only thing, besides topical steroids that heal my eczema. When I have a breakout of dry dry rashy painful skin, I slather this on before going to bed, and in the morning I look so much better.

That alone is the reason I have repurchased this, though I save it for really bad skin days. I am still looking for the perfect daily moisturizer. I'm using Aveeno, but it's not enough for NY winter.

Cons: It has a gluey texture that becomes serum-like when rubbed in. The jar with the distinctive green lid is really easy to spot on store shelves, though a bit unhygenic.

Not really much of a con though. I will buy this again and again.

Ok...Let me just start off by saying that, for the record, I am a really big fan of Cetaphil cream...the original one that comes in the huge jar. However, it is really expensive (about 14 dollars!), so I don't think its practical to spend that much when I only have occasional bouts of dry skin. Needless to say, I was looking for a less costly alternative that was just as effective. I finally decided to pick up this Eucerin product (a little less than 8 bucks). And to be honest, although it did a satisfactory job at getting rid of the dryness, I didn't enjoy using it--I won't buy it again and I still highly prefer cetaphil. The eucerin is THICK--and not necessarily creamy thick but more like waxy thick..it doesn't absorb well and it always leaves my hands feeling sticky ugh! you have to really work it in so that you get the moisturizing effect and your clothes don't cling to you. If you don't give it time to sink in, your skin can end up feeling sticky and humid. Also, there isn't a floral/fake perfumy smell, but I do detect a faint odor and it isn't pleasant--kind of like elmers glue or something.

My shoulders and chest became really dry and flaky due to another product irritating my skin. I used a barrier cream that had zinc oxide in it at first and that worked really well in soothing my irritated skin, but it did nothing to moisturize it. I used the Eucerin to combat the dryness and it definitely did its job. Upon initial application, I felt a noticeable difference in my skin's condition, but it took 2 or 3 days of application before I got the full effect.

My complaint with the packaging is that the ingredients on mine (I have the small jar--not the tube like in the picture) are not visible! I wanted something without mineral oil, but it wasn't until I got home and peeled the little flap underneath the jar that I saw that it did actually have that ;(.

I cannot believe how wonderful this lotion is!! It saved my poor, scaly, itchy skin this winter. It even helped soothe an area that recently had a mild eczema outbreak. It will probably be too rich for me to use when the warmer weather comes, but I'll gladly put it away for the next cold season. Definitely a great find!
