I love, love, love this product! I have super-dry skin, and this product is great b/c it sinks in quickly and moisturizes without feeling greasy. I also love that it's unscented and doesn't have that weird chemically smell that some "unscented" products have. I live in a climate that's warm/hot most of the year and VERY humid, and this is great stuff for my skin in these conditions.
I really wanted to like this, but this seems to be nothing like the moisturizer everyone else is raving about. It irritated my skin and made my skin so greasy, it just sat on top of my skin rather instead of moisturizing. I tried this over and over both day and night hoping to see better results, but I broke out every time, mostly small milia but sometimes cystic. I always wonder if I got a dud, but I really don't feel like buying another one to find out. The packaging is great and its good deal pricewise for the amount of product you get but this just doesn't work for me.
I love this moisturizer, but i feel its not enough for the dry winter. Its light and not greasy at all. I use this after cerave face wash and they're good together, but still use vaseline on my dry spots after applying the moisturizer...hopefully i can just use this in the summer, because i hear vaseline isn't good for you!
Nice and light- no grease or shine.
I don't think it's strong enough for very dry skin or harsh winter wind though.
My skin is normal/dry and I don't live in Chicago anymore, so this lotion is perfect for me!
I wash my face with Cerave Cleanser,
then use Paula's Choice BHA Solution,
then use Paula's Choice Super Antioxidant Concentrate (vit C),
and then use a tiny pump of the Cerave Lotion to finish.
My Skin Is Amazing with this routine!!!
PS- the best sunscreen for me is Shiseido's SPF 55 Lotion. I don't use it everyday though.
I wanted this lotion to work so bad, but it let me down. I like how it sank into my skin fast and was not greasy like Cetaphil. However, I started getting pin sized white heads thinking it was from not washing my face enough. A week went by and I started getting larger inflamed pimples and thought it was everything else but the CeraVe. In the end, it was the CeraVe. It saddens me, but I will keep on the hunt for an acne safe lotion. This is why I don't believe when things say "non-comedogenic".
This was recommended by my dermatologist and it's the best moisturizer I've tried. It's light and almost fluffy, but it hydrates instantly and very well without stinging or breaking out my oily, acne-prone skin. It's fragrance-free, but I don't want to put a fragrance on my face. It's a bit expensive, but I don't have to use much.
The problem is that it's difficult to unscrew the pump so it pops out. Usually the top of it just falls off and I need to squeeze out the lotion from the tube. It still works, though.
Meh. Good ingredients, but it's nothing special. Quite watery in my opinion, and did very little as far as deep moisturizing goes. It doesn't have any fragrance which is nice, but I bought it for my face, was unimpressed, so I just used the rest up on my body. It didn't cause a rash or anything, it just didn't really do much.
Nice and simple moisturizer. I have oily acneprone skin and this is plain and simple for me. Don't expect any benefits from this because it's very straightforward by balancing out your skins oils and forming a barrier over skin. And love the pump bottle. I also use it as a body lotion.
Thought this would be a good moisturizer for my sort of oily and moderate acne prone skin. Boy was I wrong!!!
The CeraVe moisturizing lotion is terrible!!! When you put it on it soaks in fairly quickly, but leaves a sticky feeling and makes my face a little shiny.
The bottle says it's non-comeogenic, but no where on the bottle does it say "oil-free".
This lotion was just awful...made be break out with white heads EVERYWHERE especially in the chin and jaw area...and the forehead.
The lotion also feels like it coats my skin and it can't breathe.
I would definately NOT reccomend this product to anyone!!!
I'm going back to Clean and Clears Dual Action moisturizer.
Th packaging is ok...would have much prefered a pump. Fairly cheap for it's size (10 bucks for a 12 oz bottle)
OVERVIEW: Sticky on face, left a "coat" on my face, pores didn't feel breathable, made me break out terribly, didn't control oil very well.
I went back to Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer and almost immediately (withing two hours) my breakouts calmed significantly!!! All of the little pimples around my mouth and chin were nearly gone!!! (there were about 15 or 20 of them) so, I'm thinking I may have had an allergic reaction to the CeraVe. Just would like to note that the CeraVe did NOT sting or burn while I was using it.
I have sensitive skin and always trouble by pimples and red patch. My dermotologist recommended me to Cerave (cleanser and lotion) and my skin has become a lot smoother, and softer. The red patches are all gone! 2 sample size lasted me 2 month so a little does go for a long way. :)
