Hand Cream Day 1: Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Cream
Our first candidate: Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Hand Creme
Soak-in speed: 4 (maybe 5?) It had a nice, smooth texture that didn't seem too heavy and soaked into my skin right away.
Residual greasiness: 5 My hands felt very smooth, but not at all greasy after 15-20 minutes or so.
How long it lasts: 2 This, I imagine, is the downfall to a lotion that soaks in fast and isn't very greasy - It didn't last as long as I would like. Two or three times over the course of the day, I had to reapply lotion an hour and a half or so after an initial post-handwashing application.
Fragrance: 3 It was basically unscented. If I made a point of doing my darndest to try to figure out what it smelled like, it was like any other unscented lotion. So, nothing that won me over, but it wasn't unpleasant, either.
Total: 14-15 This was a good choice for daytime use while doing other activities, but I don't think it's a cream I'll come to rely on. By the end of the day, I wanted something heavier. Additionally, I would have liked to see it go further towards smoothing out my dry spots. Even immediately after application, it still hadn't completely soothed the texture.

Note: I used the CVS generic version of this one because I already had it.
Soak-in speed: 4 Soaked in quickly - I could type in under a minute.
Residual greasiness: 4 My hands felt slightly greasy for a little while, but it wasn't at all bad.
How long it lasts: 3 I had to reapply it fairly regularly, but not so often that I felt like it wasteful or ineffective.
Fragrance: 3 Only very slightly scented. I prefer a stronger scent, but it certainly wasn't unpleasant.
Bonus: +1 because I felt like it was really making a difference in my hands immediately.
Total: 15 Overall, I loved this one. It just felt really effective, without keeping me from using my hands. I wish it had a better scent, but we can't have everything. This is definitely one I'll keep around for everyday use.
