Without question, this is an innovative body wash for those with dry to very dry or eczema-prone, itchy skin. Labeling it a shower oil is correct, because although this has cleansing ingredients, it does not look or behave like a typical body wash. It is fluid and, being oil-based, a bit greasy, though mixing it with water does produce a low-foaming creamy lather that rinses surprisingly well. True to its claim, your skin will be left noticeably soft and smooth, though anyone with bothersome dry skin will still need to follow up with a moisturizer after you shower. Caution: Using this product may make your bathtub or shower floor slippery. Be sure to check that and clean the floor accordingly between uses. This product is not recommended for oily or blemish-prone skin.

Eucerin Calming Body Wash is a mild cleanser with the skin-soothing benefits of natural omega oils to relieve and calm dry, itchy skin. This unique formulation does more than cleanse, it helps improve the condition of your skin. Soap-free and fragrance-free, Calming Body Wash doesn't strip away skin's essential moisture and is enriched with natural omega oils to protect and soothe. At the end of your shower, your skin will feel comfortable and smooth.

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, even their latest 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. 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.

    Smells Weird
    • Although this product left my skin feeling good, I could not get past the weird, kind of fishy smell. I ended up throwing it out after a few showers because of that, alas.

    The best!
    • This is the best body wash I´ve ever used! My dry skin just soaks it up like a long drink of water. I do still use lotion/cream, but not nearly as much as I used to. Highly recommend!

    Got a sample of this and just tried it for the first time.
    • WOW AMAZING!!! My body skin has never been softer! i dont even have to apply body lotion. It comes out a heavy oil almost like how olive oil feels. It lathers into a thick creamy lather its kinda hard to describe, I want to say a heavy lather. I know its removing all my body sunblock because of the oil in there (think asian cleansing oil) and rinses perfectly. After drying off my jaw dropped touching my skin. 5 stars!
