Moisturizers -CeraVe -SA Renewing Lotion


I bought this lotion to see if it could reduce the KP on the sides of my lower legs for the summer, but I used it on the rest of my body, too - not only my legs (not the face, though). The bummer is that I ran out of the bottle in about 3 weeks, using a moderate amount all over my body a few times a week. My KP improved a bit, but I think I'd probably have to be using this lotion for a longer time to see more significant results.

What I really like is this luminous sheen I got on places that were already reasonably smooth, like my arms and thighs. I've used a Salux wash cloth for years, and more recently I use an Italy towel about once a month, but introducing the SA Lotion was what really made my skin glow. As another reviewer mentioned, a chemical exfoliant will exfoliate much more evenly than mechanical exfoliation, like scrubbing with rough towels like I've been doing. I imagine if I used the lotion for a longer period of time, the rougher parts of my skin would get the glow, too.

The lotion also has a nice feel to it. Nice and light for the summer, not sticky or greasy but still feels like it's effectively moisturizing. I'm not sure if it would be strong enough for me in the winter.

At the end of the day, I can't see paying this much money for a product that doesn't even last me a month. I might repurchase it in the future if I want to look extra good for a special event or something, but only if I can't find a cheaper lotion with SA that I can bring into my regimen and use on a regular basis without breaking the bank.

Moisturizers -CeraVe -Moisturizing Lotion

Used this moisturizer combined with the cleanser to repair my skin after a bad reaction from a previous product (not sure if it was over-exfoliating or allergic, but it was bad).

I really love this product. You get a lot in the bottle, and a little goes a long way for my combination skin, so it's an amazing value. I use it over my face, neck, and decolletage.

Cleansers -CeraVe -Foaming Facial Cleanser

on 7/20/2018 11:06:00 PM


I have been loving this cleanser.

I recently used a product that left my face painfully sensitive with redness. I'm not sure if it was over-exfoliated or a minor allergic reaction, but I couldn't even wear makeup to cover the effects.

Went out and bought this cleanser at the recommendation of a friend (as well as the CeraVe lotion). It's been just over a week and the sensitivity is gone and my skin feels and looks great.

Sunscreen -CeraVe -Face Lotion SPF 50

on 7/18/2018 4:54:00 PM


I really don't like this sunscreen, and that makes me sad, because I normally love Cerave products. I bought this because I wanted to try a sunscreen I could easily get in the US instead of having to order expensive Euro sunscreens online. Avobenzone makes my face burn when I perspire, so I decided to get a physical-only sunscreen, and I chose this one due to my fondness for Cerave. Well, the first time I applied it, my face looked a mess. The sunscreen clung to every area of my face and it also left a terrible white cast on my very light skin. I attributed it to the fact that my oily, thick skin was not well-exfoliated, so I put this product aside and hit the hydroxy acids and the Differin hard and got my skin to looking better and smoother. Then I tried this product again. It still looked awful and I looked like I was wearing a white mask. Also, it stung. I don't know what caused that, but I was surprised. I will not buy this again. I went ahead and ordered a highly-protective Euro chemical sunscreen (sans Avobenzone) from frenchcosmeticsforless.com and I will see how that goes. In the meantime, I will use this Cerave product on my hands.

Moisturizers -CeraVe -Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM

on 7/16/2018 2:10:00 PM


For a product that is supposed to be non-irritating, the multiple formulation changes have been super annoying. It was a reliable, trustworthy product for my sensitive, redness-prone skin about 3-4 years ago. It felt like a lightweight cream and I had no adverse reactions at all. The first reformulation I tried was more like a gel, and broke me out. The current formulation (a third?) is somewhere between the first and the second, texture wise, but provides the least moisturizing benefits of any of them, and still breaks me out. To add insult, the newest bottle is terrible. From about the 2nd use on I was untwisting the entire top and using the pump tube to scoop out product. I'm pretty distrustful of the entire brand now, which is disappointing because of how available and affordable it is.
