This is a lighter-weight, but still moisturizing version of Eucerin’s Daily Protection Face Lotion SPF 30. In this case, the SPF rating is lower, but it still provides UVA protection via its in-part titanium dioxide sunscreen. Cost-wise, it’s quite a value as an all-over sunscreen. Those with normal to dry skin will find this works well as a facial moisturizer, too, though it is short on the bells and whistles that many other facial moisturizers with sunscreen do provide. Unlike the facial version of this product, Eucerin included an antioxidant (vitamin E) in this version.
Eucerin Daily Protection Body Lotion SPF 15 offers protection from incidental sun exposure and free radical damage while intensive moisturizers relieve your dry skin. Formulated with a blend of sunscreens including titanium dioxide, it provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection to help prevent skin aging, long-term skin damage and skin cancer. Anti-oxidant enriched with Vitamin E to help protect from free radical damage. Non-greasy, moisturizing formula is clinically proven to relieve dry skin for 24 hours.

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.
