  • Product of Gold Bond
  • Pack of 2

This formula appears to be efficient, according to almost 80% of all diabetes patients. Most of the reviews available are very promising – people with extremely dry cracked and irritated skin seen to notice the improvement immediately after the topical application of the lotion.

The product is specially designed for people with diabetes. It aims to provide instant hydration to the skin while creating a protective barrier on its surface.
However, there are a lot of negative comments saying that the pump is broken. Perhaps, a whole batch of products was defective, as the number of complaints cannot be neglected:
This is a good moisturizer, but does not come out through the pump. I must open the top completely and squeeze, it then comes out in a solid tube.

Eucerin Diabetics' Dry Skin Relief Body Lotion, 16.9 Ounce

 

  • Provides softer, smoother and noticeably moisturized skin after just one use
  • Clinically proven 24 hour moisture
  • Lightweight and fast absorbing

The product does not have a very impressive reputation among diabetes patients, mostly because of the ‘sticky-feeling layer’ it leaves on the skin. According to many comments, it doesn’t go away until washed off.

However, the body lotion is indeed effective when it comes to hydration, as it penetrates deep into the skin and leaves it soft and healthy.

There are lots of comments, written by diabetic patients saying that the product works well on severely dry and irritated skin. Several reviews report that it helps reduce the itchy feeling, which is a very common problem among diabetics.
