During the two week period two notable events occurred that put my Eucerin products to the test even beyond the daily dryness and eczema prone sensitivity of my skin. One week in, I not only got a tattoo (pictured below) but also experienced a massive flare up of eczema (no, the two events were not related). For this reason I ended up using all of the products on a daily basis as follows:
- SPF 30 Moisturizing Face Lotion* prior to applying cosmetics in the morning.
- Dry Skin Body Wash* during a shower or bath, followed by the SPF 15 Moisturizing Body Lotion* and Original Healing Soothing Repair Cream* in areas suffering from eczema.
- On days when my eczema was out of control and beyond itchy I used the Itch Relief Treatment* in lieu of daily moisturizer to soothe my skin.
- Most notably, the Daily Moisturizing Cream* has not left my side since my tattoo was completed a week ago today. My tattoo artist actually recommended Eucerin lotion (well timed!) and it's been indespensable to me as my winter wren begins to heal.
The unexpected favorite of the bunch was Eucerin's Itch Relief Treatment* that offered soothing comfort to my skin while moisturizing and reducing eczema. My old standby (a product that I've referred to as "the big guns" since my childhood), the Original Healing Soothing Repair Cream* was a must following applications of medicine meant to reduce the more pronounced flare-ups of eczema.
My, my, my how proud of me my dermatologist would be today! Just as I'd predicted (and he would have too) I've been thrilled by my two weeks with Eucerin. As you can imagine, my use of these products will not conclude with the end of my fourteen day Eucerin only regime. This range of eczema and sensitivity friendly moisturizers has always been my go-to, and it will continue to be so in the coming months and years.

Ultimately, my two weeks proved to me that Eucerin is up to any task where my skin is concerned. From tattoo care, to a moisturizer that reduced itchiness or an old favorite that penetrated my skin rather than sitting on the surface, Eucerin consistently left smooth skin where eczema prone areas had once been.
What are your favorite Eucerin products? Do you have any questions about my experience? I'd be thrilled to answer to the best of my ability.
