This is the best moisturizing cream ever! i totally loved it!
combination- very dry and very oily at some parts
this product didnt make my skin oily or dry and i didnt break out :)
every one should try this .. i swear!
UPDATE (Nov.19, 2012): It makes me break out... I can't use it too often, but if I'm having an especially dry face day I still use it before I put on makeup. (5 starts down to 3).
Where has this stuff been all of my life?! I've finally found a HG moisturizer. I am so glad I gave this product a try after reading different reviews on MUA.
I moved to Maine a couple years ago from the Mid West and starting in fall my skin starts to get ridiculously dry. I've tried a couple different facial moisturizers and have had at best mediocre results and at worse a full face of small bumps that made me look like I had a disease for a couple weeks...
This moisturizing cream is by far the best I have ever tried. It's inexpensive as well! You only need the smallest amount (a pea sized or less) so this container is going to last forever.
There is no smell, stinging or need to reapply multiple times to keep my face from getting dry. It does take a bit to soak in completely. It's much better (if not exclusively) for night time application. If you are planing on using it before applying makeup use a very SMALL bit, because if there is any part of your face that it hasn't soaked into all the way, you will look like an oily mess and the makeup will literally melt off of your face. Other than that, I have no complaints. It does the job I bought it to do.
Who knew that adding a moisturizer to my skincare routine would reduce my acne? I started using this after toning my face at night and it has made my skin clear up. The tub is huge so the $10 price tag can be justified. My only complaint and the reason why I took a lippie off is because of the packaging. It is very unsaintary and would be much better if it came in a pump. Therefore, any time I used this I get the product with a cotton swab. Will repurchase, but due to the size it won't be anytime in the near future.
have been using this for 5 years and its great. is fantastic for my dry skin. i can carry it around in my bag and use it through the day. in the morning, i cleanse with cetaphil cleanser and the follow with this moisturizer. i take it in my palm and mix it with a couple of drops of an spf45 sunscreen and then apply. follow with loose powder and i am done!! :) at night i use it liberally with vaseline lip balm for lips. very light, works great. i have used toooonnnns of expensive moisturizers and none even come close to this. :)
I develop some red patch under my eyes after uses too much acidic stuff (bha, regenerist, pc antioxidant) Nothing at all could be apply on face without the sting n pain oouch!! (pc moisture boost toner, loreal cream, clinique moisture surge)
Finally I gave this a try got gwp from the cleanser. Mine is in tube form. Surprisingly the red patch almost gone the next morning.
This cream isn't bad, however it's not perfect either. I think you can definitely feel the petrolatum, which is the 2nd main ingredient, when you put it on your face. I just have this feeling, when I put it on, that it's not really being absorbed into my skin, but that it's moreso sitting on top of my face, like creating this layer of faux-soft skin...I can't really explain it. It's gentle, doesn't sting, but it's really hard to rub in. It's better if your skin or hands are just slightly wet, and then it will go on more smoothly. Also I don't rub it in, I dab it on. Also, I've read online how it doesn't have the best ingredients...and how the petrolatum is kind of sketchy...I think I'm going to try the Complex 15 moisturizer, and see how that works out. I would try the Cerave as well, but it has parabens in it.
Great for the dry flakey patches on my combination skin, especially during winter with the extremes of the cold weather, and a wood stove heated house. I do wish it came in a pump though. Would rebuy.
I've been battling with eczema since I was 5 yrs old. Now, in my late 20's my skin had a few years where my eczema was under control. Just recently, my face has really reacted to the weather as well as other products such as Caryl Baker Visage, Aveeno, Olay.
I had to completely stop using any facial cleaners. I just used water but the problem with that is it wasn't getting rid of the oil I had on my forehead. I have little white bumps (not all acne) that was spreading all over my forehead. This was a reaction I got after using Caryl Baker (still 3 months after stopping the product).
I went to see a skin specialist & he said to try Cetaphil. When I got to Shoppers Drug mart I found a bottle that was for ECZEMA!! There are two different bottles. One is the original & the other is for eczema. I was thrilled. I've been using the facial wash along with the moisturizer & my skin has calmed down tremendously. I even notice the white little bumps I had on my forehead going down.
If you have a Walmart in your area I suggest purchasing the wash from thete as it is cheaper. Also, there is a coupon on the back on the bottle so you will save $2. It makes a difference trust me. Hope that helped.

I really like this.I needed a good moisturizer for the winter and decided to get this.I bought it at Rite Aid for a total of $15.98 yesterday and spotted it at walmart for $10.98 with a free trial size of the cleanser :/ so be careful where you buy it.Anyway on to the product itself,it comes in a 16OZ jar and is very creamy when i first applied it.I applied too much and it became really greasy but if you apply the right amount you get soft smooth skin.hasn't crost me a breakout yet(hoping it won't)
This product would be good for people with normal skin, non problematic skin. I, on the other have skin that is very sensitive, combination skin. Sometimes, when I put some of cetaphil on some areas on my face get super red. Definitely, not enough for me. But I think for someone who doesn't have that many problems, it should work very well.
