Fourteen Days With Eucerin

When Eucerin recently contacted me to ask if I wanted to participate in a "fourteen day challenge" of sorts, it wasn't difficult to say yes. You see, I've been using Eucerin for quite literally my entire life. As long as I can remember I've struggled with eczema and dryness, and Eucerin has been excellent for my skin both when it's acting its best and when it's at its worst. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase the fact that drugstore products of this caliber are just as effective (if not more so!) than their high end counterparts.

I was asked to visit Eucerin's Facebook page and use their "Skindicator" App (here) to learn a bit more about my skin type and which Eucerin products would best suit my specific needs. After answering a few short questions I was matched with Eucerin's Skin Calming Range and Daily Protection Range. With the exception of odds and ends (eye cream, cleanser) I'll be exclusively using the products you see below for the next two weeks.

The products I was sent from the Skin Calming range specific to my skin type include a Dry Skin Body Wash* in the form of an oil not unlike l'Occitane's, an Itch Relief Treatment* lotion and a Daily Moisturizing Creme*. Despite the fact that it's supposed to be spring, the warmth remains to be seen here. It's still freezing and alternating between rain and snow which means these products will be getting a lot of love from me even beyond the two week "challenge" window.

The products I will be using from the Daily Protection range include an SPF 15 Moisturizing Body Lotion* and an SPF 30 Moisturizing Face Lotion*. Those who have been reading Getting Cheeky for quite some time will know that this self same Daily Protection Moisturizing Face Lotion has been a daily use product for me since before this blog even existed. I can't emphasize enough the importance of daily sun protection, no matter the weather! 

Last but certainly not least Eucerin was kind enough to include the gem that started it all for me, an enormous tub of their Original Healing Soothing Repair Cream* an incredibly thick, effective moisturizer that can combat even the most finicky dry spots!

You'll hear from me again in fourteen days (on April 24th) when I report back about the before and after results of sticking to a Eucerin exclusive skin care regime. In the interim, I'd love to hear which Eucerin products you find the most effective!
