Eucerin is one of those brands that should be viral for its amazing quality products and good prices but isn’t – yet! If you have dry skin or eczema, then you’ll probably already be familiar with the brand, which is known for being fragrance-free, non-irritating and packed with soothing, moisturising ingredients.
The brand is built on over 100 years of experience. In 1900, a young German chemist created a one-of-a-kind emulsifying agent – a balm that soothed and cooled the skin – which became the first-ever Eucerin product.
It has since developed into a range for all skin types, avoiding potential irritants such as fragrance and essential oils, focusing instead on reparative and soothing ingredients. No wonder Eucerin is a top choice for those with sensitive skin.
Why you should try Eucerin
Although the brand is known for hydrating and soothing skin, it also has a large offering that covers multiple skin concerns, from pigmentation to acne and even sun care.
The best products from Eucerin for eczema, dryness and pigmentation
Read on to discover 6 of the best products from the Eucerin range, and wave goodbye to dry skin…
Eucerin Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm, £12.50
Star ingredients: Glycerin, panthenol
Best for: Dry skin
This is an absolute staple and the ultimate does-it-all product. Use it for cracked elbows, dry skin on your face and body, as a lip balm or even a brow setter. You can also ‘slug’ with this gem and treat a damaged skincare barrier.
With its key ingredients being glycerin and panthenol, this soothes and protects like nothing else. It’s even said that Meghan Markle wore it as highlighter on her wedding day – creative!
Eucerin 10% Urea Lotion, £15.50
Star ingredients: Urea, ceramides, glycerin
Best for: Dry skin, sensitive skin conditions
A lightweight but extremely hardworking lotion, this is a saviour for dry, flaky skin, as well as psoriasis and keratosis pilaris. Urea is one of those unsung heroes when it comes to dry skin, especially when it is paired with ultra-reparative ceramides and natural moisturising factors – a combination that moisturises and repairs while minimising trans-epidermal water loss.
Bonus: this can be safely used on the body, hands and face.
Eucerin Oil Control Sun Gel-Cream SPF50, £16
Star ingredients: Glycyrrhetinic acid, Licochalcone A, L-Carnitine
Best for: Acne-prone and sensitive skin
This is a great gel-cream option that blends in easily without leaving a white cast on the skin, while offering a full spectrum UVA and UVB protection.
The inclusion of chosen ingredients supports the repair of cellular DNA damage and neutralise free radicals, which are responsible for skin ageing and dull complexion.
Eucerin Anti-Pigment Dual Face Serum, £42
Star ingredients: Thiamidol, hyaluronic acid
Texture: Light serum
Best for: Pigmentation
The Anti-Pigment range includes the brand’s patented ingredient thiamidol, which targets pigmentation directly at its root cause. This is paired with hydrating hyaluronic acid for extra skin smoothing.

Eucerin DermoCapillaire Calming Urea Scalp Treatment, £13.50
Star ingredients: Urea, lactate, lactic acid
Best for: Dry and itchy scalps
During summer holidays, thanks to extra exposure to seawater or chlorine in the pool, you might find that your scalp is itchy. This can happen to all of us, and even more so for people with dry skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.
This leave-in scalp treatment easily calms itchiness and irritation. This product can be used on freshly washed (or not) hair and it’s safe to apply daily, even twice a day depending on the severity of your condition. Simply use the thin nozzle and apply straight to the scalp, then massage in.
Eucerin DermoPurifyer Oil Control Cleansing Gel, £11.50
Star ingredients: Ampho-Tensides, salicylic acid
Best for: Oily and acne-prone skin
This gentle cleansing gel is suitable for oily and acne-prone skin as it effectively removes dirt, sweat and excess sebum. It’s especially good for the summer months, when you might notice more oiliness and be in need of a thorough skin cleanse to avoid clogged pores. Importantly, it also doesn’t leave the skin tight after rinsing.
