Review Overview

Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Lotion SPF 15 does not contain the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone, Tinosorb, or Mexoryl SX, and is not recommended. No antioxidant around can make up for an omission like this, at least if your goal is to keep skin from wrinkling and sagging.

Claims

Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused within five weeks and firms and moisturizes for softer, smoother skin. Provides daily UVA/UVB protection to prevent fine lines and wrinkles caused by sun exposure and is fragrance-free, oil-free, non-irritating, and non-comedogenic.

Ingredients

Active: Octinoxate, Octisalate, Oxybenzone, Other: Water, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Cyclomethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Isononanoate, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Alcohol Denat., Octyldodecanol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Panthenol, Ubiquinone (Coenzyme Q10), Macadamia Nut Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Lecithin, Disodium Phosphate, Potassium Phosphate, Carbomer, EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben, Butylparaben, Isobutylparaben

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 it...

It's affordable and the best moisturizer I've ever used. I was looking for something fragarance and oil free because I have sensitive, acne-prone skin. This also has spf 15 in it, but I guess it only protects skin from UVB rays, and not UVA rays, but that's okay to me because this moisturizer is awesome for my dry and oily skin. It's not greasy and soaks in intead of leaving a greasy film on my skin like other moisturizers. I'm really surprised it's rated as a "poor" on here.
