Review Overview

This is an excellent fragrance-free body lotion for dry to very dry skin. The concentrated formula is a bit on the greasy side, but does a great job of hydrating skin and preventing moisture loss. Unlike most of Eucerin’s body lotions, Daily Replenishing Lotion contains an impressive mix of emollients, fatty acids, and skin-identical ingredients. There’s even a small amount of antioxidant vitamin E included, though other body lotions (such as those from Olay Quench or Paula’s Choice) offer a broad range of antioxidants. Still, this body lotion deserves our top rating for its overall formula and value.

Claims

Eucerin Daily Replenishing Lotion repairs dry skin with a formula that's ideal for everyday use – fast-absorbing, yet very effective.

Ingredients

Water, Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil (Sunflower), Petrolatum, Glycerin, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Octyldodecanol, Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Dimethicone, Cetearyl Alcohol, Lanolin Alcohol, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Cholesterol, Carbomer, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben, BHT

Brand Overview

Eucerin At-A-Glance

Strengths: Inexpensive and widely distributed; fragrance-free cleansers; some good body washes and body moisturizers; widely available.

Weaknesses: Anti-redness products that added questionable ingredients instead of increasing the anti-inflammatory agents; nothing for acne-prone skin; jar packaging; some standard body lotions that are OK for dry skin but "OK" isn't good enough.

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.

Excellent for very dry skin

Despite having acne, I have very dry skin; especially on my body. I will be starting isotretinoin after the summer and I expect I will need an extra emollient lotion. This is it! Fragrance-free, locks moisture in; my skin feels balanced and hydrated. I may even use it on my face should the medication excessively dry it out. As for the lye comments; I suggest you read the information on sodium hydroxide in Paula's Choice's Ingredient Dictionary. Small amounts: Good. Even water is bad in large amounts!

Strong Odor

Overall the product was one of the best body lotions I have tried,really light to the touch, non greasy ad richly hydrating for dry skin that absorbs quickly and leaves skin soft and smooth for hours. The main caveat, the smell it is strong and rancid and lasts the whole day I had to return it for that reason alone. Besides this it is a great lotion of fantastic value if you can stand the smell.

Lifesaver for atopic dermatitis!

This is seriously a bargain beauty must have! I have dry to very dry sensitive body skin and have been battling atopic dermatitis for years and this lotion has almost completely eliminated any traces of it within 2 weeks! It has no scent, the pump dispenses enough for one whole leg, spreads easily and sinks in completely within a few minutes. Now this is a product I would describe as beautiful!

Eucerin misinformation

I've been enthralled by Paula's choices until I read about Eucerin. One of my most painful realizations, which I'm realize the web site knows, is the fact that several people said verbatim: "thinking it must be safe for me to use, as it was a "best" product. On a whim, I decided to read the ingredients". This was repeated over and over. That means it was actually a single review that Paula wanted to reiterate so that everyone would believe it. After seeing this... I no longer trust Paula.

Hello, and thank you for expressing your concerns - which Eucerin product was this about? It is possible that a single review duplicated; if so, we can certainly delete the duplicate review.

Almost As Good As Slip Into Silk

Almost as good as Paula's Choice Slip Into Silk Lotion although without as many beneficial ingredients. But it keeps my very dry, sensitive, prone to eczema hand and body skin in reasonable shape. And absolutely unscented. I recommend it if you need a drugstore-priced unscented and non-colored lotion for dry, sensitive skin. It it weren't for the price difference, I'd use Slip Into Silk, though.

Decent definitely fragrance free

Great value, decent to blend...no weird chemical scent that even fragrance-free products can have. Nothing else worth mentioning one way or another.
