Eucerin is one of my favourite skincare brands. I have used quite a few of their facial products and they are all top notch. I am a bit new to their bodycare products as, let’s be honest, they are not exactly cheap. But in this post I am going to tell you why the new Eucerin UreaRepair Plus range is worth its weight in gold. If not more!
New Eucerin UreaRepair Plus
If you have sensitive, very dry or eczema-prone skin like I do, please take note: this range is life changing. Let me start off with this… last year I wrote a post ‘There’s urea in my body lotion?’ that you can check out HERE . Now that you know what urea can do for your skin, let me tell you more about Eucerin UreaRepair Plus.
A New Kind of Freedom for Dry Skin When your skin is dry and irritated: Eucerin® UreaRepair PLUS provides immediate relief and 48 hours of protection.
With over 25 years of expertise in skin care, Eucerin is the most recommended brand by dermatologists for dry skin. The products come with proven effectiveness and skin tolerability and have been clinically tested on skin conditions like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and people living with diabetes, as well as the aged with thinning skin.
Suffering from medically dry skin is not only uncomfortable, itchy and sore, but the effects go beyond the physical symptoms, often leaving people feeling frustrated, helpless, emotionally drained and tired from lack of sleep. Eucerin® has provided a comprehensive and effective solution for people suffering from extremely dry skin, with the Complete Repair Range. This year Complete Repair becomes the Eucerin® UreaRepair PLUS, with vitalized new packaging and a new product, the UreaRepair PLUS Replenishing Body Wash. The Eucerin® UreaRepair PLUS provides immediate and long-lasting relief of dry skin signs like roughness, scaliness and flakiness, providing moisture and strengthening the skin barrier. This makes skin more resilient and delays the recurrence of dry skin. The new UreaRepair PLUS Replenishing Body Wash, in a convenient 400ml with pump applicator, provides gentle, yet effective cleansing.
All of that sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? But does it really do all that it promises? I put away all of my other lotions and potions to really put this range through its paces and this is what I discovered:
The Eucerin UreaRepair Plus lotions, both 5% urea and 10% urea, are amazing. No more dry, flaky, dull, scaly tight-feeling skin. These lotions provide relief from the moment it comes into contact with your skin and the feeling lasts the whole day. And if you suffer from eczema, I highly recommend that you give it a try. I have not suffered any breakouts or sensitivity since I started using this range. I first finished the 5% urea lotion. I savoured every single drop. It applies like an absolute dream. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth with absolute no residue. Eczema sufferers will know all too well that some lotions, creams or butters may feel great when you apply it, but if it leaves a heavy/greasy residue on your skin, it may just irritate it more. The 5% lotion is definitely my favourite of the two. I am currently using the 10% lotion. It is recommended for extremely dry, rough and tight skin. The product is also recommended for people with ageing skin, Diabetic skin or psoriasis. It is amazing! The only thing that I don’t really like is that fact that it doesn’t apply as well as the 5%. It feels as though there is a bit too much ‘slip’. I don’t know how else to explain it. It doesn’t feel quite as ‘creamy’ as the 5%. 5% retails for R170 and the 10% for R190. Both come in generous 250ml bottles.
This is what Eucerin says about the Eucerin UreaRepair Plus Handcream:
For daily use on dry and strained hands. To care for contact dermatitis, psoriasis, diabetes and for accompaniment of therapy. Made with 5% urea, ceramides and natural moisturising factors. Immediate relief and long-lasting protection for smooth and soft hands. Gives the skin durable resilience and protection from dryness. Rapidly absorbed. Without fragrance and colouring agents.
What do I say? Yes, yes, a thousand times YES! This hand cream is a must-have is you suffer from eczema on your hands. It does all it promises, and more. It retails for R120 for 75ml.
I was keen try give the Eucerin UreaRepair Plus Replenishing Body Wash a go, but I was not overly excited. I don’t always believe the claims that a wash can change your skin, as it isn’t in contact with your skin for very long. If a wash leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and clean, and it doesn’t cause any irritation, I’m happy. The replenishing body wash did that. Nice. But why would I pay R180 for 400ml of soap? Because this stuff changed my skin! It is a miracle product. Used with the lotion, my skin is softer, smoother, plump, glowing and less irritated than ever before. EVER! I want to shout it from the rooftops. My skin not only feels wonderful, it also looks fabulous!! Even a bit younger, dare I say?
The new Eucerin UreaRepair Plus range isn’t a skin treat, it’s a TREATMENT. No wonder dermatologists recommend Eucerin.
