Redness Relief Soothing Cleanser is a gentle, fragrance-free, water-soluble cleansing gel whose simple formula is ideal for those with sensitive, easily irritated skin. It contains licorice root extract, a good anti-irritant, but considering the amount of it here and the limited time it’s in contact with your skin, it will not lead to “immediate redness relief.” The good news is that this cleanser isn’t apt to make persistent facial redness worse. It is best for normal to slightly dry or slightly oily skin.
A gentle, soap-free gel that cleanses makeup and impurities without irritation and helps maintain skin’s moisture balance. It is fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, safe for sensitive skin and appropriate for rosacea.

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.
