Review Overview

This is an exceptionally basic fragranced body moisturizer that’s an OK option for dry skin—but whether dry or not, your skin deserves more than what this provides. Normally we’d comment on the jar packaging being a problem for light- and air-sensitive ingredients, but because this formula lacks those ingredients (antioxidant) the jar packaging’s only issue is one of hygiene (it’s not the most sanitary to dip your fingers in a jar of body cream every day.

  • Inexpensive.
  • Average formula that doesn’t treat dry skin to a range of beneficial ingredients.
  • Jar packaging isn’t the most sanitary way to use a daily body moisturizer.

Defend skin against everyday elements and pollutants with a creme specifically formulated to strengthen and moisturize. This luxurious, fast-absorbing formula with Provitamin B5 and a balancing pH buffer provides 24-hour hydration and enhances skin’s natural protective barrier.

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.
