I was given this bottle of Eucerin Sensitive Skin Protective PH5 Wash Lotion by a friend. Another friend had told me lots of good things about this brand and I was really wanting to try it. She uses this wash lotion all over, even as a facial cleanser!
I don’t go as far as to use it as a facial cleanser, but I really like this for use in the shower. It has a light powdery citrusy smell which I find very refreshing. At least it is not loaded with all the fragrances you get in shower gels.
I could not get information on this anywhere else but on the German site of Eucerin, so if you can read German, then you might want to read more about the product here. Otherwise, this is a rough Google translation of the page.
This is a very mild cleanser that is good for those who have sensitive and dry skin, or have problem using soap cleaners. It has a PH5 which is close to that of natural skin and helps protect the skin barrier from drying out as soaps usually do.
I found that if I use it, my skin does not feel tight and dry after I shower, but instead, I feel comfortable. It lathers up well and a little goes a long way in the shower. I think its about RM20 for a 400ml bottle but am unsure of the exact price. However, I know that it isn’t cheap as far as shower stuff go. I mean, you could probably purchase a commercial brand for a lot less than what you’d pay for this. But this will ultimately be so much better for your skin.
As I said above, my other friend uses it as a facial cleanser too and finds it mild enough to be used on her face. I have not personally tried it as I’m using other facial cleansers for now. But she is very experienced so I trust her judgment on this one. Give it a go if you want to. Ultimately, if it works for you, you save a lot of money!
I have squeezed out every last drop from this freebie bottle given by my friend and am now thinking of picking up a bottle for myself. I don’t usually rebuy shower gels so you can be assured that I do think its excellent stuff! This is easily found at our local pharmacies including Guardian and Watsons so watch out for when it goes on sale.
Pros: Cleans well, Skin does not feel dry, good for sensitive skin
Cons: Rather expensive for a shower gel
