This is a very standard moisturizer that can be an OK option for dry, cracked skin. The amount of urea is impressive and without question urea is a good moisturizing agent that in high concentrations can also exfoliate dry, rough, or callused skin. This fragrance-free formula doesn’t treat skin to many bells and whistles, and the jar packaging isn’t the most sanitary way to use moisturizer, but it’s still an option if you need something simple yet effective.
Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Body Creme gently exfoliates dry, damaged skin, while providing 24 hours of moisturization to leave skin noticeably softer and smoother.

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.
