Frugal Friday - Eucerin Hand Creme

Living here in the Pacific Northwest seasons changes within a matter of days. Last week it was in the upper 70°’s and this week the high has been around 45° with lows in the 20°’s! The major change in climate instantly drains my skin of moisture, especially my hands. I could just about sand that wall I was going to paint in the dining room by rubbing my hand over it. Eucerin is a drugstore skincare brand and this week’s Frugal Friday pick—Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme. Often recommended by dermatologists, this rich thick hand creme is quick absorbing and doesn’t leave your hands feeling greasy—you will actually be able to open a door with the doorknob after using it. The formula uses alpha hydroxy to gently exfoliate, along with extra-enriched moisturizers to heal and soften skin. I keep a tube of this at my desk and one in my purse at all times. Retails for about $6

I have also used Eucerin Plus Smoothing Essentials for my dry legs in the summer and it works wonderfully. The alpha hydroxy banishes those little bumps I can get from shaving but does not sting or irritate and keeps my skin really hydrated. It is clinically proven to moisturize for 24 hours!

I have not tried any of the Eucerin Redness Relief lineup but these products get rave reviews from those with sensitive skin, redness and roseacea.

“Eucerin Promise: High quality ingredients and clinically-proven formulas that help keep your skin healthy. Eucerin skin care is safe for sensitive skin and so effective that it's been trusted by dermatologists for years.”
