At a recent fundraiser where my school's Dermatology Club participated, one of the sponsoring companies was handing out a bunch of samples of skincare products. One of the ones was this!

Eucerin is known generally for being a good skincare brand. It focuses on ingredients that are non-comedogenic and fragrance-free. It is especially tailored toward sensitive and sensitized skin types.

Coming from this background knowledge of the brand, I had a pretty good initial opinion of the product.

Now that I've tested this product for awhile, I figured it was time to give it a review!

Active Ingredients (sunscreens): Ensulizole 2.0%, Octinoxate 7.5%, Octisalate 4.5%, Titanium Dioxide 2.38%,  Zinc Oxide 4.85%. 

Other Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Cetyl Alcohol, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth-20, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Sodium Lactate, Lactic Acid, Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides, VP/Hexadecene Copolymer, PEG-40 Castor Oil, Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate, Xanthan Gum, Trisodium EDTA, Sodium Hydroxide, Alumina, Simethicone, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydantoin.

A look at the ingredients shows us that this is an organic-inorganic combo sunscreen. It covers both UVA and UVB rays. There are relatively few extra emollient ingredients in this sunscreen.

  • Very light, non-greasy feeling
  • Did not make me break out
  • SPF 30+ (meets current US FDA recommendations)
  • Covers UVA and UVB ray spectrums
  • Does not have oxybenzone or retinyl palmitate
  • Price: $10 for 4 fl oz (good price for a good sunscreen) in drugstores, $7.19 on
  • Some people may dislike the organic-inorganic sunscreen combo
Overall, I think this is a great sunscreen. Great for the price too. It is definitely a big recommendation for a product choice of the ideal sunscreen!

Did I find a HG sunscreen? Perhaps!
