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.
- 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.

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.
