Back to Basics with Eucerin!

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

There are certain brands that resonate with me for their simplicity, trustworthiness and timelessness.  Eucerin has been a staple in my household since i was a little girl.  In fact, it was always my mom and grandma's lotion of choice!  As a beauty blogger, I've been fortunate enough to try many lotions and potions, but there are some things you simply leave to the lotion authorities!    When i struggle with dry, brittle skin, you'll find solely one brand on my nightstand... Eucerin!  You could imagine my excitement when they contacted me for an honest review of their products!  Since i was already familiar with some of their amazing lotions, i was super stoked to try some of their other products!  So here are my thoughts...

Lets begin with a couple of Eucerin's basics... Daily Replenishing Moisturizing Lotion and Skin Calming Daily Moisturizing Creme!  Whether you have sensitive skin or not, these two lotions are essential for your everyday moisturizing needs.  They are light, incredibly hydrating and fast absorbing!  I find that the Daily Replenishing Moisturizing Lotion works great on my skin after the shower but i love using the Skin Calming Daily Moisturizing Creme on my little girls!  Yes... my little girls! You see... the great thing about Eucerin is the fact that their products are fragrance free and work on all skins... even on my little twinadoes and their sensitive skin!

So lets chat about sun protection!  As the warmer months approach, it's imperative that you protect your skin against the sun's strong rays.  For everyday purposes, the Daily Protection Moisturizing Lotion gives your skin the essential amount of hydration while providing the necessary sun protection we need to keep our skin looking young and smooth.  It's essential particularly on any exposed areas of skin.  The Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion leaves my skin feeling so soft!  I love that it doesn't feel heavy at all.  I've used it on my girls several times and love it!  I carry this baby with me whenever i travel with my little ladies!  It's compact enough that i can do so, plus it's comforting to know that i can reapply whenever necessary!  Watch out there sunshine!  I'm armed and ready for you!

Now the next three beauties may look small but they are major power houses! The Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Hand Creme has been my go-to hand repair creme since i began my teaching career 12 years ago.  My hands take a real beating every day with so much hand washing (only way to get rid of all those kiddie germs)!  This cream, which i keep on my nightstand and at my work desk, is essential for nursing my poor hands back to normal!  Oh and have i mentioned how much i love that Eucerin products are fragrance free?! OK sorry, but i do!  I would say the Smoothing Repair Dry Skin Lotion is a step up from the Daily stuff.  It's a bit more intense the the Daily Replenishing Moisturizing.  You'll want to reach for this if your skin is in need of a little extra TLC.

OK, if you're looking for the holy grail of hand repair,  look no further then Eucerin's Original Healing Soothing Repair Creme! Wow!  This thick cream is the perfect remedy to combat even the worst chapped hands!  When i feel the need, i simply glob a bunch of this good stuff all over my hands, slip on a pair of gloves (i stock up on Target's $1.50 gloves for this purpose) and keep them on for a couple of hours at night while in bed watching TV.  This truly solves all dry skin ailments STAT!  Psssst, it works wonders on your feet too... just apply a generous amount on your tootsies, slip some comfy socks on and leave as long as you'd like!  It will soften any dry, rough skin right up!

Many women, myself included, spend hundreds of dollars on skin care!  Surely if it's expensive, it's good right?  Well, don't discard this drugstore gem just yet because Eucerin's Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sensitive Skin Creme can easily stand up to any of the fancy shmancy creams on my nightstand. I've been using it religiously for the past couple of weeks now and my skin feels wonderful!  If you want a quality, anti-aging cream on a budget, look no further then this pretty baby!  You'll notice the difference... and so will your wallet!

So lets chat!  Do you use Eucerin?  What's your favorite product?  Which of these products most entice you?  I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Thank you SO MUCH for reading!  XOXO Carla - FMM
