Cleansers -CeraVe -Hydrating Cleanser

on 1/16/2018 6:06:00 PM


I've used this one,the hydrating one, and I have also used the foaming one and I definitely prefer the foaming version. Neither dry my skin out, neither feel hydrating, neither feel like they clean my face very well and neither are good at removing makeup, so what is the point of even using them? Also the pumps clog easily which is annoying. My Philosphy Purity does it all and leaves my face, clean, soft and not stripped of moisture. Yes it's more expensive but the big bottle lasts me about a year. I don't rely on cleansers to moisturize, I want them to clean. The Cerave Hydrating doesn't leave a film like Cetaphil does and it does have better ingredients that are good for your skin, but I doubt those ingredients are on long enough to do much. I don't have dry skin, so maybe those with dry skin appreciate this more. I don't know why this is such a holy grail for many, but so is Cetaphil and I think it's the worst cleanser I ever used, EVER. I just feel neither Cerave formula cleans my skin very well.

Moisturizers -CeraVe -Facial Moisturizing Lotion - PM

on 1/16/2018 5:41:00 PM


Love it and replace it whenever I run out. This is the PM but I use it in the AM before putting my makeup on because it plays nice under all of my foundations and tinted moisturizers and never makes me oily. It's not the only one I use but it is definitely a staple for me. It never irritates, sinks right in and makes my skin feel wonderful. I do not like the Cerave AM at all. It has SPF 30 and burns and irritates my face and also seems oilier than the PM. It sort of just sits on my face and doesn't absorb as easily as the PM. I also can use this on the under eye area and it never burns, irritates, causes milia, etc. Zero fragrance too. It has a nice pump bottle that always works well. Walgreens always has buy one get one 50% off so I usually order 2 at at time because my husband uses it also.

Lotions/ Creams -CeraVe -Renewing SA Cream


I hesitated for months before trying out this cream, because CeraVe's Renewing SA Cleanser and Skin Renewing Cream Serum were a huge no-no for me. The cleanser made my skin feel rough, and the gel oil broke me out in little tiny whiteheads around my mouth.

I've been using the SA cream on my face and body for about a week and so far so good! It stings my face a little upon application, as I currently have a very painful hormonal breakout on both cheeks. The cream sinks in beautifully, though, and doesn't leave me feeling ridiculously oily like other thick skincare products do. My facial skin still feels rough, but I'm not going to give up on it just yet! The fact that the cream is hydrating is what's keeping me going. Hopefully I'll be able to enjoy smoother skin soon.

As for my body, I've noticed that my feet feel smoother and silkier than ever before. This is remarkable, as no other drugstore cream or lotion has done much for my rough, dry feet in the past (with the exception of AmLactin, but that lotion just doesn't sink in as nicely as this cream does). So if ever I stop using this SA cream on my face, I'll continue using it on my body for sure!

Cleansers -CeraVe -Foaming Facial Cleanser

on 1/10/2018 9:31:00 PM


I have been using this cleanser for three months now and will continue, it's my favorite(and I've tried quite a few. Leaves my skin soft, isn't drying at all, and a little goes a long way. My skin loves the ingredients and is noticeably brighter and less oily.

Lotions/ Creams -CeraVe -Moisturizing Cream

on 1/8/2018 10:33:00 AM


Ugh, this cream burned/stung my skin. Had to wash it off within 30 seconds. Returned it to Walmart and the lady at the counter said it did the same to her sensitive skin. Had much better luck with Curel Fragrance-Free for a ceramide cream/lotion and it's much less expensive. I also use Vanicream products with no problem. FYI, Cerave is now owned by Loreal.
