Eucerin Sun Lotion with SPF 50 was one of mine everyday sunscreens this summer. I got a 10 ml tube as a sample with purchase and, since the pharmacist told me I shouldn’t use it on the face, I have forgotten about it. Unfortunately, I don’t have any info on the price (I suppose it is around $20-30) or the amount the full size comes in.
However, having gotten a nice reddish freckle caused by the sun on the side of my forehead (I wore SPF30, but I had to spend all day out in the sun), and having only Eucerin as a high SPF sunscreen, I decided to bit the bullet, thinking that it couldn’t do more damage. Here is the picture of the freckle. Since the photo was taken with flash, the colour is slightly washed out, but in reality the freckle is a bright pinkish red).
Eucerin Sun Lotion is a combination of physical and chemical sunscreen.
The consistency is, as the name says, very light. It spread easily and it sinks in quickly, without being sticky. It doesn’t leave whiteish cast.
The scent is fairly strong, alcoholic, but disappears upon the application.
Because of the alcohol inside, it is a bit drying. I have oily dehydrated skin, so it didn’t do much damage, but drier skin types should be cautious. I was the most afraid that it will break me out, but it didn’t.
It is possible to put the make-up over it, but I still prefer Bioderma Photoderm SPF 30.
