Review Overview

Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme contains some well-documented antioxidants in a light yet creamy base formula. Unfortunately, jar packaging won’t keep the antioxidants stable, leaving you with an average choice for normal to dry skin.

Claims

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused within five weeks and firms and moisturizes for softer, smoother skin. Fragrance-free, oil-free, non-irritating, and non-comedogenic.

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.

I love this stuff. I have acne prone, aging, combination, and sensitive skin and I use this cream at night. I notice a difference as soon as I use it. Great price point too. I have repurchased this many times.

So wrong, just want people to spend more!

My mother used this always, she had skin like a baby's behind until she was 85. I am now using and would not change for the anything. The expensive stuff is just that expensive and actually was damaging my skin further!

Holy grail product

I've been using this product for years and it's the only creamy moisturizer that doesn't make my sensitive skin burn. It's a thick cream, so I only apply it at night. I highly recommend it for people with sensitive skin.

Doesn't irritate my sensitive skin

Not greasy but deeply moisturizing, little rubbed between palms and patted on face goes a long way and doesn't break out my face like most drugstore brands. My dermo recommended I try it.
