Hg moisturizer. Doesn't break me out and gives me a nice healthy glow.
I love this moisturizer. I use it on my face everyday even though I believe it is for your body too. My dermatologist recommended it and I have been using it for over 3 years. I used to have terrible acne that covered my chin and jaw line up to my cheek bones. This did not clear my skin (my skin cleared with help from my magical dermatologist) BUT it didn't aggravate my extremely sensitive skin (most products tend to burn/sting my face) and hasn't caused me to break out ever. I would say this is a wonderful moisturizer for those people looking for a moisturizer that won't irritate sensitive skin.
i can't tell you how much i hate this product. a few years ago, before i got into makeup, i had the smooth flawless canvas. after using makeup, i've gotten a few pimples here and there. this year, i broke out crazily, with 10 pimples a week or so. my skin went from normal-combo skin to dry, flaky skin. it was just starting to calm down and i wanted to use this lotion since it looked very gentle and it could finally hydrate my face.
the lotion was amazing the first two days i used it. my face was moisturized, and felt super smooth. however, on the third day, i developed some weird bumps on my chin. and it looks like its only starting to multiply. i guess the other reviewers were right. maybe this is TOO moisturizing..
I started to use Clinique Redness Solution for over a year after I was diagnosed with Rosacea. I have luck using Clinique, helping to calm my redness, but since a few months ago, I had this out break with unknown reason then my doc asked me to use steroid cream. It was better at first, then after a month it worsen my rosacea. Later, i searched online and found this called "steroid induced rosacea". Ever since, my skin become more sensitive, and everything I have been using for my skin either stopped working, or a bit irritated to my face. I had to change my entire skin care products, and when i went to visit my derm, she asked me to use Finacea for the rashes, redness, bumps, and pimple caused by steroid (for anyone that has rosacea, please do not use anything that contain steroid). And she recommended me to use Cerave cleanser and lotion. I've been using both now, and find it really helps to calm my face, and soft my skin. All the problems I initially had are almost gone, with very few bumps, and some redness. The only reason I took out one lip is because I find it clog my pore a little, but there is nothing i can't accept, I just have to find a gentle toner to help the situation, because this lotion and the cleanser really keep my condition at calm, and good. I hope it works well for you all as well....................good luck! For those who had mild rosacea, and not as sensitive skin, I also recommend to try Clinique Redness Solution moisturizer only (I didn't like the rest of the line). It helps to calm the redness on my face for only using it once a day. I can't use it in the morning as my skin is oily, and I can only use gel moisturizer which I use H2O Plus Oasis Hydrating Gel.Update 11/13/11: I've stopped using this lotion along with the cleanser after I can no longer tolerate how much they clog my pore. I guess they are better for people with dry skin, and/or no visible pore on their face, but definitely not for me with oily, visible pore.
I hate those oily/buttery sort of moisturizers that seem to sit on my skin and never absorb. My friend swears by this, so i tried it out and FELL IN LOVE. It's a VERY LIGHTWEIGHT, watery sort of consistency that soaks right into your skin. Oh, and NO FRAGRANCE!! After a couple minutes, it feels like nothing is there. At first I thought it just wasn't working, but six hours later, i noticed that my elbows (usually are very rough) was still very soft and smooth--without feeling like there was moisturizer sitting there. I use this all over my body and on my neck, and the bottle will last you for at least a couple months. Good deal! (for hand, however, I still like using L'Occitane 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream because its very moisturizing and I wash my hands all the time. Definitely try this out! I'm wary of Shea Butter products because generally I find they don't absorb well and are too oily, but this one is EXTREMELY moisturizing while still managing to soak into the skin. It boggles my mind, but there you go. I will use nothing else for my hands.)
Thanks to MUA, I have been using Cerave lotion consistently for the past two years. I have very sensitive, mild-to-moderate acne prone, dry skin. Cerave doesn't seem to aggravate my skin; it lightly moisturizes it and doesn't burn my eyes--like other skin creams that I have tried. The price is OK, considering the fact that I use Cerave solely as a face/neck lotion--it lasts a while. My only "complaint" is that I feel that I need more moisturizer/hydration around the eye area, so I am still searching for an affordable eye cream to add to my routine.
I bought this and the cream in the tub when it was on sale at Drugstore.com I like how this lotion makes my skin feel right after I apply it, but the feeling doesn't last too long. Not great as a hand lotion as it has a watery consistency. I prefer St. Ives. This did nothing for my elbows and heels. I prefer the CeraVe cream for those areas, but I don't think I will be repurchasing that either.
I love Cerave lotion. This is one of the only moisturizers I can use on my facial skin and not have any issues. My skin is often prone to dryness and sensitivity due to my usage of Differin cream. This stuff heals any dryness I may have and then helps to prevent it as well. It's so well priced for just using as a facial moisturizer as well, and it lasts forever. I haven't had any breakouts or clogging issues with this product, so that's good. It does seem to leave a little bit of a dewy finish on my skin, which isn't a great mix with my oily skin issues. I just have to blot any extra oilies away throughout the day. It's not too much to complain about. I will be repurchasing.
As a child, I never really had any skin problems. Then I hit my teen years and started to experience pesky dry skin that just wouldn't go away so my mother took me to the dermatologist. They suggested to use Cerave lotion and Vanicream. I fell in love with Cerave because it was so lightweight (I hate the thick creams and that greasy feeling you get from them) and I don't usually like lotions that have fragrances added to them (I leave the good smells to my perfume haha). The makers of Cerave claim that their lotion slowly penetrates the skin so your skin is moisturized all day long, and for me? It really does keep my skin hydrated.
I did stop using this lotion the first year or so of college because as most every college student knows, you're strapped for money all the time so I wanted to save some money because this isn't the cheapest lotion around. I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder and because of that I have had problems with keratosis pilaris (the annoying bumps on the skin that is sometimes embarrassingly dubbed as "chicken skin"). I started to use Cerave again and it really helped controlling the bumps, even making them disappear (note: I only have a mild case of KP).
Feels nice and light on. But after a week of consistent use, hard, persistent clogs. Do not be fooled by its light texture if you are clog-prone.
