Review: Eucerin Aquaporin Active

I have particularly sensitive skin which from time to time reacts badly to makeup or face washes causing it to dry out and be a total pain when I go to apply foundation. The last couple of weeks have been really bad for me to the point where my usual moisturisers and E45 cream haven't relieved my skin at all. So I decided I need to go to Boots and look for an alternative product to help me out. I knew I wanted a thicker, more intensive cream which wasn't perfumed, what I found ticked all the boxes!

The Aquaporin Active moisturising cream by Eucerin, is a dermatological skincare brand and after googling them it turns out that 'aquaporins' are actually natural channels in your skin and apparently this cream uses those channels to distribute the moisture evenly (not sure how much of the science stuff I believe, I'm a bit sceptical.) However I cannot deny how well this works for me, the cream is so rich that you only need a pea sized amount for your whole face and I find the results to be like a miracle! I applied this onto my poor chapped skin before bed and when I woke up the next day it was like I had been reborn. This will definitely be my go to moisturiser before bed; even though the box also suggests using it as a base under makeup but I think that due to the richness of the cream it would be too greasy. 

I am so glad I found this, I will definitely be trying other products within their range too! 
Have you found your perfect moisturiser?

Thanks for reading!

  1. That looks really good, my skin also reacts badly to make up sometimes! :(
