I have very oily, acne prone skin. I think that this lotion has potential and maybe geared more towards people with sensitive dry skin, than sensitive and oily. The consistency is a little thicker than I would have liked, however, it absorbs into the skin well. I will not repurchase this item because, although it did not make me break out, within an few hours I would oil out of my makeup, even with a primer.
Just.. no. I'm far and few among MUA reviewers by saying this, but I just don't understand Cetaphil. Maybe it's because every time I try one of their products, my skin is not moisturized enough/at all, turns red instantly and/or is greasy to the point where I have to tissue half of what I applied back off. This cream, which I bought for my severely parched skin, proves to be the same as the other Cetaphil products. Very slippery consistency when applying (only apply a little!) and leaves your face appearing overly dewy and shiny. You will feel that your skin is hydrated, no doubt, however for me my skin felt hydrated but looked cherry red. My entire nose was red-- not a single speck of natural skin color-- and my cheeks were flushed as if I had severe rosacea! You would think a sensitive skin product such as Cetaphil lotion would yield opposite results. I immediately washed off all of this lotion and went back to my trusty Cerave lotion.
Wanted to love this product as it claims to do great things for dry skin, which I have, however I was allergic. Luckily I tested on my arm before I applied any to my face! Using the original Cetaphil Moisturising Cream instead with no adverse reaction and my skin is looking better and more even every day.
So in short, I didn't like the Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion, and I won't be buying it again.
I have very sensitive and acne-prone skin, so finding a moisturizer is quite difficult for me. I would always try this product however found that it made my skin overly greasy and shiny, even though it moisturized well. However, recently I've been trying a different method. I put some of the lotion on my palm and I rub the lotion between my hands for a few seconds, and then I apply it to my face. This seems to get rid of all the grease and it has been doing wonders for my skin. My skin is no longer flaky, dry, and this moisturizer does not make me look greasy anymore. I definitely recommend this product for sensitive skin, try playing around with it and see what works for you, but I'm sure it will be a hit!
I have normal to dry skin with acne and I used this on my face and it made it kind of greasy, sticky and almost a weird pink colour. Not that it irritated my skin, it just made my face reddish pink like I was blushing all over. Not a good look. It is very moisturising though, so I think it would be great to use on your hands or body, it might just take a while to absorb into the skin.
I love the packaging, it's very convenient and one pump was even too much for my entire face and neck. Half a pump is an adequate amount, so this product will last a really long time. The bottle is actually quite big so the price is fair.
Because this isn't good on my face, I'll use it on my body. Buy it again, no, because there are other lotions I prefer, but this is a pretty good lotion, especially if you're looking for something super hydrating if you have really dry skin.
This product is hands down the best lotion I have ever used. I know some people on here have said that it's for the body and not the face but I have been using it everywhere and it has worked WONDERS! I have dry sensitive skin that tends to get even worse in the fall/winter time so I was looking for a lotion, specifically for the face, that would get rid of the dry flakey skin that was appearing around my chin and, forehead and eyes. I had been using Nivea Soft cream for my face and as much as I loved that cream, it just wasn't moisturizing enough for my face. I had already heard of the wonders of Cetaphil products on this site and found the reviews for this particular lotion. I decided to trust the reviews and went out and bought this lotion as well as the Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser for better results. After I rubbed the lotion into my face I was really skeptical, it stung and felt REALLY light on my skin, I thought "this will never work." WELL the next morning my dry flakes were GONE! After using this lotion twice a day with the cleanser for the last week my skin feels the best it ever has! I never believed that your skin could actually feel supple but mine DOES! My boyfriend has even noticed and commented on how soft my skin is and he never notices these things. Also, the best this about this lotion, it doesn't break me out. Because I have such sensitive skin, many new products aggravate it and cause really painful pimples that take forever to go away. I haven't noticed any with this cream. You don't even need very much, the cream spreads very nicely over the skin. It feels very light and does not leave a greasy residue. The dry crinkles around my eyes even went away! I feel like I don't even need makeup because it also evened out my skin tone. When I do put on makeup, my foundation looks better on my skin, doesn't cake or clump and stays put. I will continue to use this cream for as long as I live!!
i use this stuff as a face moisturizer morning and night. my face is moisturized and supple, and it sinks in quickly and is not too thick. the daily advance in the tube is my hg and the only cetaphil lotion i will buy. the cream in the tub was unhygienic, and and the regular lotion i have read is comedogenic. no frills moisturizer, not the prettiest thing to keep in the bathroom, but i love it.
I know this is going to sound very strange but I use this on my scalp and it doubles as hair gel for me. I have really bad Eczema on my face and scalp. Whenever I try gel, I get really bad flakey areas on my hairline. I was desparate so I tried it and it works wonders. I have to always keep my hair back due to my job. I can't cover up flakey red skin around my hairline. It is truley embarassing. The beauty of this is....I can also moisturize around my neck and hairline without irritation because it truley is frangrance free. I have tried other lotions that claim to be fragrance free but have a reaction every time. This particular lotion doesn't cause that. I do not like Cetaphil Moisturizers for my body cause they tend to be sticky, but for my hair. This is awesome.
Update: Nevermind, I will stick to my CeraVe. I also found an awesome shampoo/ conditioner that keeps my scalp in line.
Love, love, love this its amazing I'm extremely oily and acne prone and I can honestly have nothing but good things to say about this lotion doesn't break me out, extremely hydrates my oily but dehydrated skin, maibe a bit shinny but I can deal with that unlike the original wich left me supper greasy, not as hydrating and to top it off original one broke me out ... Here's why ... The original contains cetearyl alcohol, and ceteareth-20. Wich are non-comedogenic but when combined together there extreemly comedogenic, the ultra hydrating version only contains one of the two NOT BOTH !!! so if u break out from the original get the ultra hydrating version and you'll see and feel a diference !!!!! Hope I helped
The quality of this product is better (and more natural) than other hydrating lotions out there. I really feel moisturized and hydrated after using it on my dry sensitive skin. Would definitely recommend!
