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.
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!
I like this moisturiser and have used it on and off for the past few years. I don't like the tub-style packaging, so I usually purchase it in a tube and use the tub for body lotion. I like that this is unscented and doesn't irritate my sensitive skin. It's a great basic moisturiser that is especially good for the colder months. It is quite thick, so only a small amount is needed. The only problem is that it can be too heavy for the daytime and can get a bit oily in my t-zone area. The other bad thing is the tub packaging which I feel is a bit unhygienic for the face, and the tube is only available in a small size, so it ends up being more expensive that way.
SIMPLY THE BEST! I can never say enough good things about this product. I used it heavily during my Accutane course. Accutane obliterated my blemishes, but it left my skin feeling tight and painful. I developed severe redness and dryness around my mouth (skin is very thin there). I recall cryIng because of how much my face hurt. This cream is perfect. I use it when my skin is extra dry. I also use it as a cleanser to remove stubborn face and eye makeup. I will always go back to this product!
I bought this due to great reviews.My skin is dry, I get a few pimples not too many.My skin was super dry so I gave this a try.It was great,helped my dry skin etc.But then after a week of using it or less.I got a huge huge breakout, pimples, whiteheads,many bumps, it is horrible.I'm on the look out for something to clear it,it's been a week and those pimples didn't really reduce from their size.It used to be great but not anymore ever will I put this on my face.You get alot in the jar ,I guess that's good but I paid : 23$(Canada) + tax.
I would not recommand this if u have acne, or oily, skin either.
Since it has a greasy feel to it.
This thing ruined my face, be extra careful.
Goes under makeup really well. Skin feels amazing after use. Gets rid of dry patches over night. Last a long time. Good for oiley skin, fragrance free and non comedigenic, so it doesnt clog pores. Highly reccomend.
