Pros:Will not irritate sensitive skin, moisturizes and protects
Cons:Expensive, not waterproof, not available at all drugstores
The Bottom Line: If you have sensitive skin or allergies, Eucerin is the one brand you can trust.
I've always been allergic to sunscreen. After years of experimenting with different brands, from generic lotions to the most expensive pharmacy products, I had given up and decided to just stay out of the sun as much as possible. But when I moved to Florida three years ago, obviously this issue had to be dealt with. So I tried again and the miracles happened: I finally found a sunscreen that agrees with my skin. Eucerin is the only one I use now and I've never had any adverse reaction. I use it on my face, even right around the eyes and mouth with no problems.

The lotion is very light, it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave the skin feeling oily or greasy. It is also fragrance-free which means it actually smells a bit funny at first because the ingredients are not masked with perfume. You get used to it and the smell is not really noticeable after the product absorbs. If you go to the beach you better take the bottle with you because this sunscreen is not waterproof. It's really meant to be used as a moisturizer with the sun protection merely an added benefit. It's probably a good idea to use it daily and wherever you go, since UV radiation will damage your skin even in small doses.
The only drawback is the price, but it's worth it if you can't go into the sun otherwise. Also, this particular product seems to be hard to find. Eckerds used to carry it but not anymore, CVS offers it on their website but not in the stores, Walgreens never used to have it but now they do, and so on. I always have to check each store and see which one has some at the time. I will probably find a source on the internet and order a whole bunch, so I won't have to worry about running out for a while.
