I gave this a shot after hearing how "great" it is for your skin. for some odd reason this stung my face when I'd put it on. I'm on accutane and thought maybe these terrible breakouts are just the IB.Not a chance! my face is now itchy and I also have clogged pores on the areas of my body that I applied this. also I did a patch test on the side of my face and just that area is FULL of clogged pores and red bumps. Horrible horrible stuff. will never buy another cerave product again.!!! if you have acne prone, sensitive skin don't even touch this...

Awful face moisturizer. Didn't hydrate and left a plastic white film on my face that wouldn't even absorb over night.

I have eczema, but ever since I've started regularly moisturizing with CeraVe, all my rashes have disappeared and my skin is left smooth and soft. The cream leaves no odor or greasiness and truly does the job.

Use this daily on my hands, and sometimes face if my face is really dry.

I'm 36 and I've had moderate acne on and off (mainly on) since I was 22. My skin has always been VERY oily- even before the acne. But 14+ years of using prescription and over the counter anti-acne medications has left my 36 year old face unbelievably dry and oily AT THE SAME TIME. So my face was basically a dry, cracking, oily mess. Because of the acne, I ONLY use non-comedogenic, dermatologist recommended products on my face, and until I discovered Cera Ve, I used Cetaphil products almost exclusively for 10 years. Cetaphil cream moisturized my skin "pretty" well- but I still had dry patches and occasional peeling/cracking- especially when attempting to apply make-up over it. This was a pain because when the dry/peeling/cracked patches popped up over my make-up, I'd have to put more cream over my make-up in those areas...then re-apply make-up over those areas...then blend the "reapplied make-up" areas with the rest of my face. Frustrating, unpredictable, and time consuming. But my biggest gripe with Cetaphil was; not only did it NOT help my oily skin- it seemed to make my face even more oily. My face often looked and felt like an oil slick....but you could still see it was DRY as a desert under the globs of oil. Since every dermatologist I've ever seen recommends Cetaphil, OR Cera Ve, the brand always stuck out in my mind. One day, I randomly picked up Cera Ve moisturizing cream on a whim after trying (and liking) their eye repairing cream, and hydrating cleanser. Their cream is so good I felt compelled to write my first Makeup Alley review! First and foremost let me say this: from the moment I put it on, I instantly felt this coolness come over my face, and it felt like happy things were happening on my face! As I told my mother, it feels like a PARTY ON MY FACE when I put it on. My parched, thirsty skin absorbed this cream and made it very clear to me- I need to keep it coming 24/7, 365. If you have extremely dry and oily acne prone skin- this is a must try!!! Not only does it adequately moisturize my face like NOTHING ever has- it doesn't make my skin excessively oily! Don't get me wrong- my skin is still oily- but it's LESS oily from using the Cera Ve, not MORE oily...which is what I experienced using Cetaphil products. I have had NO cracking or peeling of my skin since using this product. None. I'm still seriously in shock from that alone. When I apply make-up I do NOT get the weird "dry patches" or areas of cracked/peeling skin I got with Cetaphil. It hasn't happened even once with the Cera Ve cream. Every make-up application I've done since using this cream has been smooth and easy, and I think my make-up lays much smoother, and more even under the Cera Ve cream. I do use other products (mainly prescription and over the counter acne meds) and I recently added a few products to my acne routine- so I can't put it all on the Cera Ve, but over the month I've used this product, my overall skin tone is improving. My face "feels" soooooooo much better and hydrated. I really don't think it's helped or hindered my acne- but I think the hydration it provides is probably going to be helpful in the long term and it's great for my overall skin tone. Again, if you have super dry/super oily/acne prone skin- I would definitely try this product. As much as I love this product (and I am TRULY in love!) it's not perfect and the reasons I gave it 4 and not 5 "lipsticks" are:1) It would be great if this had a pump, or some other sort of packaging that didn't require constantly touching the cream. I do wash my hands with antibacterial soap each and every time I dip my fingers in the "big ol' tub" but it makes me nervous. Cera Ve's website says they're rolling out a cream tub with a pump in "Fall 2015"....and that may alleviate that issue, but I have yet to see this cream tub with pump in my market.2) It absorbs into my skin VERY effectively- but I find it to be difficult to "rub-in". Hard to explain but I believe because of the thickness, it leaves trails...or residue no matter how hard you try to rub it in. I've found that when this happens- wetting my hands and then rubbing my face to "thin out" the residual cream that won't rub-in- fixes the problem. Until I figured out the "wetting hands" thing, the "rubbing-in" process was a bit arduous. 3) If you don't have "very" to "extremely" dry skin- I don't know how this cream would play for you. On one hand: the fantastic things it does as far as moisturizing your skin in a deep, penetrating way- but without excess oiliness- would be AMAZING for any skin-type, in my opinion. But this junk is THICK and as I noted in 2) it can be hard to rub-in- even for someone like me whose extremely dry skin almost immediately gobbles up most of the cream on it's own.

I'm on to my second container of CeraVe moisturizing cream and I have to say it is one of the best day moisturizers I've ever used.It doesn't leave a greasy film over my face and it absorbs easily within a few minutes. No added irritating fragrances! It quickly hydrates my face and reduces redness on my cheeks. My skin feels cooler to the touch after use, my face is less inflamed, looks healthier and ultimately feels more supple. Best of all, it's non comedogenic and will not induce breakouts.I used to apply a thicker night time moisturizer before sleeping but have been using CeraVe for a few nights and it seems to be as effective as my thicker, more expensive night time moisturizers. I will continue to use this product at night to see how it fares in the long run.Will probably buy another container of this after I'm done my current one. It's dermatologist recommended for a reason!

I wanted to like this product because it's one of those things that people just rave about. Sadly, it just fell flat for me. Can't use it on my face because it clogged my pores up something fierce. As a body moisturizer, it's fine, but nothing special. The ingredients look like they'd be so effective, and yet I felt this was your average, basic moisturizing cream. I'll use up the rest of the tub -- they do give you quite a lot of product, and the price is reasonable for what they give you (in fact, it evens out to about a dollar per ounce, which is more than reasonable) but I don't think I'll repurchase. For reference, my skin is oily and sensitive, and gets dry in cold weather.

I finally caved and tried this cult favorite. My ultimate favorite night cream is Korres Rose Overnight Facial, and this leaves my skin with the same supple, moisturized and cared for feeling in the am. I still feel traces of the cream on my skin when I wake, but even right after putting it on my skin never feels greasy. Granted, my skin is normal to dry, and I I rarely break out. It is refreshing to find such an excellent treatment product at such a low price.

This stuff is the best. I frequently have to take prednisone, and one time I was on it for over a year, which totally messed up my skin. What was once clear, normal skin on my face, turned into red and super dry skin. I tried tons of different moisturizers, even putting Aquaphor all over my face at night, and nothing really helped. My foundation always clung to and accentuated the dryness, which obviously isn't a great look. After reading tons of reviews on CeraVe, I decided to try it. I'd seen it in the store before, but never really gave it much thought since ~$16 for 16oz seemed like a lot for a drugstore product. I bought it at Ulta during a BOGO 1/2 off sale (I got the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser with it -- also awesome), with CeraVe coupons and the $3.50 off $10 Ulta coupon, so I ended up getting a really good price. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is HG for sure. It brought my skin back to normal (although I still have some redness, but I wasn't expecting to get rid of that with this product). Sometimes I forget to put moisturizer on before my foundation, and you can't even tell! The texture is rich and creamy, and feels like a dream going on. It's not greasy at all, and I can even use it under makeup, as long as I give it a minute to absorb. It has no scent which I am absolutely thrilled about because I am very sensitive to fragrances. Once dried, it leaves a natural finish on my skin. Another cool thing is that the tub lasts forever. I started using CeraVe daily about 11 months ago, and haven't even used half of it. So even if I had to pay the full $16, it would be totally worth it. After having such a great experience with the Moisturizing Cream and Hydrating Cleanser, I also bought the AM and PM Facial Moisturizing Lotions, and I love both of those, too. The Moisturizing Cream is definitely the star though, and I'll never be without it.
