I feel like this product is too hyped up for what it is. Yeah, its fine as a really basic moisturizer, but I honestly feel like it barely makes a difference when I put it on. I get maybe two hours of moisture from it, and then the benefits completely disappear: definitely not long lasting like it claims to be. However, the pros are it doesn't have fragrance and is non-comedogenic, so it would be perfect for anyone with ultra sensitive skin who can't use other products.
I always seem to come back to this moisturizer after fleetingly trying new ones. I forget how good it is. I use both the lotion and cream, but prefer the cream as it is amazingly emollient without being heavy or comedogenic and is fantastic during the colder months when I am more prone to breakouts. I also use this on my body and it helps with any dryness I might have. I have been using this for years and will be for years to come.
I used this on my upper bod and it clogged my pores and broke me out all over my chest and back. So glad I tested it there first before trying it on my face!
I have been using this Cetaphil cream for years and years. It's not too heavy and it's unscented. I have mild eczema and I think if not for this product my skin would flare up more frequently. There is a lot of product in one tub, and I only use just a dollop to cover my body plus face after I shower so just one tub lasts me for a long time. It hasn't broke me out on my face and doesn't leave oily residue after it absorbs. Packaging could be better but it works; and if I'm traveling I just transfer some to another smaller container. Great product for the price.
I have dealt with hormonal acne for over a year now and have tried sooo many different moisturizers as I use topical acne solutions on my face and no matter what moisturizer or brand I used my face always seemed to be dry and more broke out every morning..
I decided to settle for trying cetaphil since I tried everything else... Price wasnt that bad for the amount you get... and I have to say I absolutely love this cream... I use it every night on my face before I go to bed and my face has inproved sooo much.. and what pimples I do get I have to say probably are related to putting the cream on your face...
Its greasy feeling on the face for the first few minutes that why I only use it at night time and not under my makeup.. and other then that I wish this product had a pump instead of putting my fingers in it I have to say I will continue to always use this moisturizer.
This is a must have for days where your skin is super dry..I can even use it around my eye area with no problem. The only "concern" I have with it is the TUB. Maybe they have a squeeze bottle, but I haven't been able to find one at my drugstore! Anywhoooo, the tub makes it super unsanitary..I would recommend scooping it out with something then applying.
Purchased this moisturizer a few days ago, desperate since my skin has been so dry.Tried Cereve lotion but that didnt do the job at all. So read reviews & gave it a try. Glad i did since it did the job great. Applyed it in the evening & next day i swear I felt the difference in how smoothe my face was compared to how it was before. I was a little afraid that it was going to make me break out since the texture is very thick. But 4 days later it has not broke me out. Just smooth non flaky skin which i have been trying so achieve with so many different other facial lotions. continued >>
Holy tub of cream batman! I'm not thrilled with the packaging, but for as much as you get, it's worth it. I bought this thinking I'd use it on my face, but when I saw how thick it was I slathered it on my 'ashy larry' legs instead. It's really moisturizing, and gentle, even the next day. I think I like the fact that it's unscented because now I can add my own fragrance oils or essential oils. This is heavy, so it's great for night time or right after the shower, but I wouldn't use it during the day, I'd slip and slide right out of my pants. I recommend it if you have dry, sensitive skin.
Absolutely love this moisturizer!! I have been searching for one for a few months now, was in Watson's with mum when we saw this moisturizer. I am also using the cetaphil cleanser which I love as it does not have any harsh chemicals and I have quite sensitive skin. I find that it is quite a rich moisturizer, which is perfect for night time. During daytime I like to put my Biore UV tint milk sunscreen on top, which mattifies my complexion and evens out the oiliness that this SS produces sometimes. Will definitely buy again as so far have not had any allergic reactions.
FOR those who are on an intensive acne skin care and is suffering from FLAKY/DRY skin this is for you!!!! I know all too well cause i WAS suffering from extreme FLAKY helpless skin, DUE to Benzoyl P. use.. I tried LOTS OF moisturizers, creams, from high end to drug store brands, nothing worked till i tried this!! literally within 2 uses my dry skin and flakes diminished!! and over time I no longer had flaky skin!!!! thanks to this!
