I'm not quite sure how I really feel about this sunscreen. I like the fact that it's spf 30 and retailed at a rather inexpensive price, contains lactic acid and suitable for sensitive skin types. I don't have sensitive skin naturally but after chemical peels the skin is more prone to sunburn and damage because of the increase sensitivity. This tends to leave traces of white residue which I don't like and takes a bit of time and effort to blend into the skin. After this bottle is finish I might return to aveeno (which worked fine and didn't leave behind a white residue) or look for other sunscreens.
This product did not do justice for my tan skin at all! First of all it leaves a white cast on my face no matter how long i spend rubbing it on (which looks horrible and embarrassing with my tan complexion, its like I have the wrong shade of foundation on with an obvious color line on my face to the rest of my body), I even try using less but than that just defeats the purpose because its not enough to cover my entire face and two it is not as moisturizing as it claims and it leaves this greasy and nasty feeling on your face. It very disappointing because I had high hopes for this product especially with its SPF 30. Oh well, I guess I just have to go back to my Olay moisturizer with SPF 15.
Eucerin has such great products that really helped me with my eczema, so I picked up this lotion without hesitation. I mean, it's Eucerin, with SPF! And SPF 30 at that! Much better protection than my HG Olay SPF 15, right? So I started using this on a daily basis, under my makeup. I did notice that it didn't quite jive with my makeup as well as my Olay, but I ignored it for the sake of the higher SPF. Until, that is, a guy actually commented that my face looked white. Yikes! With the amount that should be used to ensure sun protection, there's no way that this lotion doesn't leave a whitish cast! Now I use it for my hands and arms - back to Olay for my face.
HG! I quite like this face lotion. I have sensitive skin and also use retin-a so I needed a lotion w/ high spf. This fits the bill. Haven't had any breakouts or a problem with a white cast. I've been looking for a good face lotion for years and this lotion rocks.
This product leaves me with a pretty noticeable white cast, and I have fair skin (although somewhat yellow toned w/ freckles). I guess you could just apply less but that defeats the whole purpose! It's also hard to spread on my dry skin (fixable by moisturizing first). But I don't think this product is very moisturizing like it claims.
When I put it on it calms my redness down and feels soothing, but I've noticed that when I've been in heavy sun for a few minutes my skin gets flushed and red! This hasn't happened with other ss. Also, WHERE are the ingredient percentages eucerin?? there's no way to tell how much zinc is in this, making any guesses at ppd impossible.
EDIT -- tried to use this again but got the same flushed skin as a result. This just doesn't hold up in the sun for me (I have sensitive skin). might be the lactic acid.
So far, so good with this product.I purchased this to wear during the winter/early spring months, when I want decent SPF and some moisture. I normally wear Shiseido SPF55 in the summer, but that is a bit of overkill for winter in New England--and it is a bit drying in the colder months. I am 44 and have normal skin with an oily T-zone, but not extremely so. I also have the typical dry areas for a woman my age: near lips, cheekbones, eye area.
I bought the Eucerin to replace my Olay SPF30, which was feeling a bit greasy/tacky and is fairly expensive for a drugstore product.
The Eucerin SPF30 is much cheaper than Olay. You get 4 ounces of Eucerin for under $7. The Olay SPF 30 was 2 ounces for around $12!
The Eucerin lotion spread easily. It was whitish at first until I rubbed it in. I am NC20, so not a problem on me. But I didn't see it once I had blended it. My Lancome Dual Finish powder went on flawlessly afterwards.
This lotion has a slight sunscreen odor, but not bad. I don't notice it once it is on.
I purchased it instead of other d/s lotions like Cerave because the Eucerin has physical sunscreens and also doesn't contain parabens. It is very hard to find facial products without parabens! l also noticed that the Eucerin had a relatively short list of ingredients compared to similar products from other lines.
It doesn't irritate my skin or cause redness. No breakouts so far.
I like the pump bottle, although the overall design of the bottle is rather clinical as opposed to pretty or classy.
I will update my review after I have worn this for a few weeks. If it works, it is quite a deal, and I would expect the bottle to last a long time, especially since I switch over to Shiseido sunscreen in the summer. I'm guessing a 4 oz. bottle of this would last nearly a year for most people. Again, an excellent bargain for what appears to be a very high-quality product.
This is a great product for my fair and sensitive acne prone skin. My skin seems to get healthier and my acne gets better every time I use it.
I'm currently using this as my every day morning moisturizer and can see myself doing so for quite a while. The SPF 30 is great for someone as pale as me, and there's no white residue as long as you rub it in well. For a moisturizer with SPF it's surprisingly non-greasy and has a great slip to it; it sinks into my skin quickly so that my makeup goes on smoothly. There's also no weird smell, which is something I tend to be sensitive to in moisturizers. It's a great affordable, easily accessible moisturizer and I see no reason to search for another since this works for me so well.
i've been using eucerin everyday protection face lotion for at least a couple of years, it never clogs pores, wears nicely under makeup and it has spf of 30. at this moment i need something more moisturizing because now i'm 40 but overall really good mosturizer.
This was a desperate drug store emergency purchase for a moisturizer that would not irritate my sensitive skin, give me adequate UVA/UVB protection and that was rich enough to soften. SO glad I chose this one! I paid $10.99 for 4 fl.oz. and the product does what it says it does. The formulation contains no irritating ingredients but it does contain silicones, which do not bother me, but do tend to make the skin "drag" a little after the product sinks in. The zinc oxide does leave a whitish cast, but I don't mind it so much in winter because I'm already a (very pale) NC40. Because I'm between night creams right now, I used some the other night with a retinol product with good results. I like the fact that the pump is hygenic and dispenses a generous amount of product (perhaps 1/2 teaspoon) so two pumps should do the trick for face and another two pumps for the throat area.
Nice to know that Eucerin is still around and creating quality products at a fair price. This product also has a seal from the Skin Cancer Foundation, which gives me a bit more confidence that the product meets today's standards for sun protection and quality ingredients.
