What has been keeping my skin sane

Full disclosure: I’ve gone through bottles of Eucerin that I’ve bought for myself. However the products shown below were sent to me for free.

I’ve been on a moisturizing kick ever since this past winter. Your skin seriously feels touch-ably smooth when you apply moisturizer every time you step out of the shower. It literally takes 3 minutes to slather up your body and keep the moisture in for a full 24 hours. If you’re not so new to reading my blog. You might already know how much of a fan I am of Eucerin calming cream to treat my (winter) eczema at home.

Even though I don’t have eczema year round, I still like to keep my body moisturized and especially summer ready now that it’s getting warm here in Ontario.


This totally sounds like an infomercial. But hear me out. Luckily I knew Eucerin would do the trick in keeping me scale-free, moisturized and crack-free.

I thought I was going to get away with not dealing with eczema this past winter, because it came on so late. But luck isn’t on my side when it comes to dry itchy skin during the later parts of winter. My eczema flare ups aren’t as bad as some people’s. But it does annoy the crap out of me and I usually try to treat it at home with drugstore products that don’t have harmful chemicals in it (like steroids).

It ain’t Elle Magazine approved for nothin’! This stuff is so thick, and doesn’t leave a scent or a greasy film to the body. Eucerin Calming Creme

Eucerin is no stranger to my skin. If it’s a good product I’m going to rebuy it, and talk about it constantly on my blog. I think I talked about it so much I grabbed the PR companies attention. They sent me an abundance of Eucerin products to try out, especially the Eucerin Calming Crème and Eucerin Aquaphor Protectant Ointment.

I know. That’s a lot of products to take in. I admit, I haven’t had the chance to try everything out since holy generous amount of products. eucerin-products


  • Calming Creme x2
  • Aquaphor Protectant Ointment x2
  • New DermatoClean Mild Cleansing Lotion
  • New DermatoClean Clarifying Toner
  • Hyal-Urea Anti-wrinkle Day Cream
  • Hyal-Urea Anti-wrinkle Night Cream
  • Smoothing Foot Cream with 10% Urea
  • Sample sized: Calming Itch Relief Lotion
  • Sample sized: Calming Creme
  • Sample sized: Calming Foaming Shower Gel

Fun fact. I went into Target and found that the Eucerin Calming Cream was a few bucks cheaper than anywhere else I’ve seen. It was around $10.99 give or take a few cents at Target. So if you want to try it out, definitely buy it from there. Everywhere else was $13.00+.


I’m in the stages where I’m now exfoliating on a semi-daily basis due to the fact that I like to self-tan in these warmer months. I scrub my heels daily with the tweezerman pumice stone I purchased at Sephora a few years ago (that stone lasts forever. It’s just as ‘sharp’ as it was when I bought it). So my elbows, heels and everywhere else aren’t chapped, chafed or cracked. So I can’t really review the product until any of those painful skin irritations come along again in the winter.

I did use the Eucerin Aquaphor Protectant Ointment (retails: $10 CAD) for the first time on my heels to try it out. Can’t believe I’m showing my feet online. But it’s just a section of it, lol. So there ya go. Nicely moisturized heels and perfect for summer sandals.


Do you know what this product reminds me of? The Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream that I also blog about quite frequently.aquaphor

You can see the consistency of the ointment on my finger, in the photo above. Very thick. Easier to rub in than the Neutrogena â€” and again, doesn’t leave a greasy film on the skin. You can use your keyboard/computer mouse and it doesn’t leave a moisturized stain. Hate it when products do that.

This isn’t just a review to rave about these (awesome) Eucerin products. You guys get to try it out too.eucerin-prize
