The very first week of June I headed oh-solo-mio to Hampton Beach, NH (actually I ended up there, I didn't really head there...) and had the beach nearly to myself so lounged and read and snoozed and walked and spent hours and hours there. In the sun. Without adequate sunscreen. Can we say "ouch!" from sunburn?!
Aloe helped and I slathered on skin moisturizing lotion twice a day, but - sadly - I have found that 50 year old skin does not "bounce back" with the elasticity of 20 year old or even 30 year old skin, so I was still peeling a little bit and kind of scaly... AND I had my 35th high school reunion approaching. I really didn't want to go looking "leathery".
Enter the Boston Health & Fitness Expo. At the Expo I had visited the Eucerin exhibit and tried samples of their new Everyday Protection line and was startled then by how quickly it absorbed into my skin and didn't feel greasy. I've been a Eucerin fan since I began using it maybe 10 years ago to solve my rough elbows and heels problem, so knew their products were good.
Within 36 hours of the Expo and less than 72 hours of leaving on vacation for my informal class reunion, I received an email asking me if I'd like to receive and review Eucerin Everyday Protection lotions for the blog.
Here's my review:
I *LOVE* the Eucerin Everyday Protection Body Lotion! I have used one body moisturizer for years and keep going back to it (St. Ives' Oatmeal) because it is so light and absorbs quickly but it wasn't helping out my skin with the damage I did from the sunburn. The Eucerin Everyday Protection Body Lotion showed visible change right away. Additionally - and this is huge for someone like me because I am not good about putting both moisturizer and sun block on before I head out the door to walk or ride bike - now there is one step and I know I'm protected and don't have to 'seek the shade' worried about my shoulders and arms getting burned. What is more, the damage I did to my skin was dramatically improved by this product!
I used Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion the entire week of vacation when I was very active and did the bare minimum makeup of mascara and lip balm. I have very fair skin and usually have to apply and reapply sun block. Not so with the Eucerin Face Lotion! Busy days in the sun and I was protected throughout. In fact, this may be the first summer in years when my face hasn't burned. I like, too, that this product is very light and I've since learned from experience that it goes on well beneath bronzer or foundation. Oh, it is fragrance free... all good. And it is affordable, too! :)
I'm thankful to Eucerin for reaching out to ask me to review their product but I'm grateful for the excellent product that will continue as part of my daily skincare regimen. Your products are helping me be "Fab After Fifty"! Life is good!
Dream. Believe. Achieve!
