Recently, I visited Eucerin’s US home base in Connecticut to meet with the experts behind the brand and some of the dermatologist they work with. As one of the oldest skincare brands in the world, with well over 100 years of history they have embraced the medical community and created the first skin council to bring attention and provide education to consumers about skincare. Having a niche in dry, sensitive skin, and eczema, Eucerin creates simple, clean products with no fragrances added that are heavily tested to be effective and safe.
New to the Eucerin family, their Eczema Relief Body Creme which is specifically formulated to protect and soothe skin irritation and itching! It’s thick and rich and creates this extra hydration layer on skin. Appropriate for babies and adults alike, it contains licochalone (a natural licorice root that soothes skin), natural oatmeal (which calms dry, itchy skin), Ceramide-3 (that helps strengthen the skin’s barrier to lock-in moisture) and Castor Seed Oil (to make skin smooth and soft). I only have eczema on my eyelid (I know, strange), but my body, especially my feet get super dry so this has been a savior.
My other two Eucerin obsessions are their multi-award winning Intense Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme and Intense Repair Extra-Enriched Foot Creme. Both are non-greasy formulas that intensively moisturize, and at 3oz are perfect for travel. I just got back from a 2 week trip from Costa Rica where my hands and feet were so dry from the beach and surfing and these were a savior. I used them at night (or after the sun goes down) since they are enriched with buffered alpha hydroxy to gently exfoliate and with any exfoliator (no matter how light), and in this case, you can’t even feel (there’s nothing granular about the formula), you should avoid direct sunlight after application.
