The two things this daytime moisturizer for normal to dry skin has going for it are its in-part mineral sunscreen (titanium dioxide and zinc oxide with other actives) and a fragrance-free formula. The synthetic sunscreen actives, while important, don’t qualify this product as non-irritating, so this isn’t a surefire bet for those with sensitive skin or rosacea. It is also disappointing that antioxidants are completely absent. Still, this provides reliable broad-spectrum sun protection in a creamy base and ends up being an affordable, though unexciting, option.

Eucerin Daily Protection Face Lotion SPF 30 combines intensive moisturization with SPF 30 in a lightweight, non-greasy formula. Microfine zinc oxide and titanium dioxide provide physical blocks against UV induced skin damage. Easily-absorbed formula provides 24 hour moisturization. Fragrance-free, oil-free, non-irritating, non-comedogenic (won't clog pores).

Active: Octocrylene, Octinoxate, Zinc Oxide, Titanium Dioxide, Ensulizole, Other: Water, Glycerin, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Cyclopentasioxane, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Cyclohexasiloxane, Ceteareth-20, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Sodium Lactate, Lactic Acid, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, Vp/Hexadecene Copolymer, PEG-40 Castor Oil, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Xanthan Gum, Phenoxyethanol, EDTA, Alumina, Simethicone, Sodium Hydroxide, DMDM Hydantoin

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, even their latest 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. 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.

    Used it every day for 17 years!
    • I've been using Eucerin since I turned 40 and love it. You get a big 4-oz. bottle for a reasonable price and it lasts a long time. I apply it liberally on my face, throat, back of neck, and upper chest every day of the week. Goes on easily, has a nice texture. It does streak white if I'm sweating but just wipe it off. I'm now 57 and have enviably smooth skin. I live in California and am outdoors everyday. This sunblock is a must. Highly recommended!

    Eucerin- came back to it again
    • I have used sunscreen since the 70's (wish had even before) and protection is important to me. When the Mineral Sunscreen from Paula's Choice was discontinued, I had to find a replacement. I loved that product which was great for my face, a very good price and mineral based. Yes, maybe this Eucerine one could have some antioxidents added in it, but we can also use Paula's ones. I use alot of sunscreen and as they get more expensive there is the tendency to not use enough of it.

    Very good daily moisturizer-- my dermatologist approves of it, too!
    • This is a very good daily moisturizer with sunscreen. I have rosacea and finding a moisturizer-sunscreen combination that works for me is a challenge, as I prefer not to wear a separate sunscreen, or a foundation with sunscreen. Too many different layers and combinations tend to aggravate the rosacea and make it worse. I also like the fact that the SPF rating is 30; I don't trust the really high-rated ones. I've done my research (I'm a librarian). AND my dermatologist says it's excellent, too!
