When Winter hits I know one thing is for sure, my hands will get dry and my skin will itch…it’s inevitable. I know I live in Southern California, but that doesn’t mean a thing. I load up on lotion like there’s no tomorrow. Dry is dry.
One of my pet peeves is dry cuticles, especially when the skin around the nail starts peeling! You can’t even imagine how happy I was when Eucerin sent me their Smoothing Plus Essentials Lotion and Intensive Repair Plus Hand Crème to try out.
Their Skin FIRST Movement is all about “helping protect your skin from the cold weather, and teaching you how to improve your skin’s health through total body healthcare.”
Product Info: Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essential Fast Absorbing Lotion $11.49 and Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme $5.49 at Drugstore.com.
Product claim: Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essentials with its gentle alpha hydroxy formula helps exfoliate and smooth skin, dramatically improving the condition of your skin over time. While it doesn’t compromise on long-lasting moisturization, it feels luxurious without a greasy feeling. Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme is a fast-absorbing moisturizer that leaves hands feeling noticeably smoother after just one use.
What I found out: After using the product for 2 months, I have noticed an overall difference in my skin and my hands. I used to have this dry patch on my elbow that is now gone and my cuticles haven’t given me any problems this winter. I am not a fan of overly scented lotions, so these two products were perfect being that they were fragrance free. And I honestly didn’t think having a product that “absorbs quickly” would make a difference, but I really like that I don’t have that greasy feeling after putting on lotion.
Would I buy it again? Definitely! Yes, especially if I had a coupon or it was on sale. Sorry Eucerin, but the bargainista in me wants it at a deal!
