Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea

Light, deeply soothing skin care for dry to very dry skin

This light face cream for dry to very dry skin instantly moisturises and soothes tightness to give the skin a smooth and supple feel.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?

Your face is generally exposed  to the elements much more often than your body and therefore needs frequent moisturisation to prevent the effects of dry skin, such as itching, redness, scaling and irritation. Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea contains key ingredients that lock in moisture to maintain long-lasting hydration. Learn more about dry facial skin.

Why should I use Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea instead of just using a body product, such as Eucerin Replenishing Cream 5% Urea, on my face?

Facial skin is different to body skin, and Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea is specifically formulated for facial skin - it has a superior texture making it more easily absorbed and tolerated by facial skin. Read more about skin in different body areas.

What is the difference between Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea and Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream Night 5% Urea?

The intensive night cream provides instant moisture and reduces skin tightness overnight.

Is Eucerin Replenishing Face Cream 5% Urea safe for children?

This product is suitable for use on children aged 3 years or more or from 1 year with medical supervision. If you want a product that is suitable for babies, try Eucerin AtoControl Body Care Lotion or Face Care Cream. Both of these products are suitable for babies.

I am not sure if I have dry skin, extremely dry skin, or a skin condition. How can I tell the difference

Fantastic moisturizer

This facial urea cream changed my skin! I've been on topical retinoids and was experiencing flaking and dryness without any help from a number of other moisturizers (even high end). My skin has never been smoother thanks to Eucerin's facial urea cream!!

My experience with this product

I struggled to find a face moisturiser that didn't leave my skin with that tight feeling. I'd become sensitive to E45 and had been using Dermalogica products. After leaving full-time Teaching I could no longer afford this and thank goodness I came across the Eucerin range. Now I won't use anything else. I love the feel of this product on my skin and I am keeping my youthful looks! I am now undergoing chemotherapy and I am finding this product is still gentle enough to use, I also use other products in this range and cannot recommend them highly enough. I've also been using the day, night, hand cream, shower oil and lip balm since they were the only products on the shelf! I am delighted that Boots have expanded their range and wait with anticipation to try the eye moisturiser (as chemo is drying my eyes):)
