Eucerin Smoothing 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.

Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea is a light and gentle everyday moisturiser for dry to very dry and tight skin. Enriched with Urea and Lactate, two naturally occurring compounds that bind in 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 Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea reduces roughness by maintaining skin hydration. It is ideal for use under make-up or after shaving.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I need a special moisturiser for my face?

Your face is generally exposed to the causes of dry skin, like sunshine, wind and detergents, much more frequently than the rest of your body, and therefore needs frequent moisturisation to prevent dry skin symptoms, such as itching, redness, scaling and irritation. Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 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 Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea instead of just using a body product, such as Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, on my face?

Facial skin is different to body skin, and Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea is specifically formulated for facial skin - it has a superior texture to Eucerin Smoothing Cream 5% Urea, making it more easily absorbed and better tolerated (when used on the face). Read more about skin in different body parts.

What is the difference between Eucerin Smoothing Face Creme 5% Urea and Eucerin Smoothing Night Creme 5% Urea?

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

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

This product was not designed for children, and therefore has not been tested by children. If you want a product that is suitable for children, try Eucerin AtopiControl 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

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS Immediate + 48h dry skin relief

Dry skin is a very common condition and often results in visits to dermatologists. Depending on the severity of dryness, skin can be tight and rough and/or prone to itching, scaling, flakiness and redness. In extreme cases, skin is pathologically dry (Xerosis).

The main reason for skin dryness is an impaired skin barrier function which results from: 

All Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS products are formulated with a unique combination of ingredients:

  • Urea and other Natural Moisturizing Factors (NMFs) to improve skin’s water-binding capacity and increase its moisture content. 
  • Ceramides and other lipids to strengthen the skin barrier and protect against moisture loss.

The formula is clinically proven to replenish both lipids and moisture in the skin to give immediate relief. It delays the symptoms of dry skin for up 48 hours. Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS leaves skin looking and feeling smooth, soft and supple.

Eucerin UreaRepair PLUS offers a comprehensive range of products which includes a cleanser, body lotions and creams (including hand and foot care products) and an intensive treatment cream for problem areas of extremely dry skin. These products are available with different concentrations of water-binding active Urea, and the concentration used should vary according to the severity of dryness.
