Aquaphor Lip Repair is a very good, emollient lip balm that comes in a squeeze tube. The fragrance-free formula is gentle and does an excellent job of taking care of dry, chapped lips.
Eucerin included a small, but potentially effective, amount of antioxidants, an anti-irritant, and a cell-communicating ingredient, all of which can contribute toward making your lips healthier. Formula- and cost-wise, this is a great, portable lip balm!
Aquaphor Lip Therapy provides effective, long-lasting relief for dry lips. Aquaphor is a superior choice because it works by creating a protective barrier that conditions lips as it prevents moisture loss. It protects and helps heal dry, cracked lips to keep them smooth and healthy.

This drugstore staple line claims to be dermatologist-preferred skin care, but any dermatologist who recommends this line in its entirety without reservation needs a crash course in what skin really needs to be protected and look its best.
There are some basic products that a dermatologist would want to consider, but Eucerin falls short in products to address acne. Further, their latest facial skincare products aren't keeping pace with what industry frontrunners are doing in an effort to create elegant, effective products. For example, serums from Olay, Neutrogena, and Aveeno have much more interesting formulations, while moisturizers from many other drugstore lines (including Nivea, which is owned by Eucerin parent company Beiersdorf) include a greater complement of antioxidants and ingredients that mimic the structure and function of healthy skin. Eucerin is making some strides here, though, which is an encouraging sign.
A major pro for this line is that all of the products are fragrance-free. Although that's helpful for all skin types, it certainly isn't compelling enough for dermatologists to green-light this line without cautions about which products to avoid.
