Eucerin Replenishing Face Creme 5% Urea plus Lactate

Soothing skin care for dry skin

This light face cream for dry skin instantly moisturises and reduces the skin's feeling of tightness to provide a smooth and supple feel.

Eucerin Replenishing Face Creme Day 5% Urea is a light and gentle everyday moisturiser for dry skin. Enriched with Urea and Lactate, two naturally occurring compounds that bind moisture, it instantly hydrates dry facial skin, reducing the feeling of tightness to give it a smooth, supple feel. Rough skin is also usually caused by a lack of moisture, and Eucerin Replenishing Face Creme Day 5% Urea reduces roughness by maintaining skin hydration. It is ideal for use under make-up or after shaving.

Also available at Well.ca and Walmart.ca.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?

Eucerin Replenishing Face Creme Day 5% Urea contains key ingredients that lock in moisture to maintain skin hydration. Learn more about dry facial skin.
