I bought this product quite a while ago and am reaching out for it more often, as of late. Application-wise it goes on smooth and doesn't leave a white cast on my face. The pump bottle makes for easy dispensing of the product so I don't get too much out in one go! Since it's fragrance free and non-comedogenic, it is quite gentle on my combination, acne-prone skin and does not break me out AT ALL. One downside to this moisturizer however is that it's a little to heavy for me to put on at night. This is not because it's greasy (it's delightfully light on my skin!) but because it seems to be a bit too much when combined with my acne spot treatment. But it works wonders for my daytime skincare routine, especially considering that it has SPF 15 in it. A great product overall and yes, I'd definitely repurchase this!
I am quite in shock to see the poor rating on this product. This is my holy grail moisturizer. I've tried lots of moisturizers and none of them moisturizes my skin the way this product does. My skin in some areas is oily but some other are dry and this cream makes my whole face well balanced and it dries super fast and I just love it period. This is my second bottle and is almost gone. This can become quite expensive as it is retailed at $18 but is just so good I will keep on buying. Also has a bonus of having SPF 15 which is good that it's already added since I am not a girl who remembers to protect from the sun but this already takes care of it. I just love this cream!!!
Horrible! I do not have sensitive skin but the moment I put this on I knew it was gonna be bad because it made my skin burn !! I left it on though because I thought my skin would adjust but it didn't. I didn't even apply it near my eyes and my eyes felt like they were on fire and started watering like crazy. This lotion doesn't really feel like it sinks into your skin either , it made me super shiny and oily, like I was wearing a face mask of cooking oil -- not a good feeling. There are better and cheaper alternatives out there, I wouldn't recommend this.
First and last time to ever use this product. I don't have sensitive skin but after ONE application I developed a rash and bumps on my face. It has been five days and my skin has still not cleared up.
Unlike most people here, I actually really like this moisturizer. My skin had gotten super dry starting a few months ago and was recommended this one, and I must say that it is fantastic and works really well. I have previously tried neutrogena, olay complete all day moisturizer, cerave am, loreal hydra-renewal, and aveeno positively radiant and the aveeno redness reducer one and none of them work on my dry skin, only cetaphil has. I use it everytime after I shower or wash my face (2-3 times a day) when my face is a bit damp and it works wonders. The texture is also not too thin/runny or thick, I'll probably rebuy after it runs out.
Pretty disappointed with this since I am a pretty big cetaphil/cerave fan. Didn't give me good enough sun protection, didn't feel great on my face, and was unpleasant smell wise
I wish I had listened to the reviews! I bought this because I am using Retin A Micro and having dryer than usual skin. It was very thick and seemed hydrating, though it sat on top of my skin a bit (probably because it was so damn thick and greasy). I used it for about 3 nights and it completely broke me out! I got at least 8 big fat red zits that are finally going down but will scar and not go away completely for months/a year. I was able to return it but I am so mad because I have existing acne and am already working really hard with my dermatologist so I can clear it up, and then this happens. I really do not recommend this moisturizer. It is too thick for acne prone faces and probably clogged my pores. I discontinued as soon as the breakout happened and I haven't had any new zits like the ones I got after starting this.
A product that doesn't break me out is Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer (in spf 30 or 45), but it is more expensive for less product which is why I looked for an alternative (I have since gone back to it). I also started using Olay Complete daily moisturizer around my mouth (dryest area) because I don't want to try anything new on the rest of my face, and it's pretty moisturizing so far though I got one tiny whitehead (no big deal so far). Good luck to everyone looking for moisturizers! Hope this review helps.
This came to my home at the beginning of my minimalist makeup phase. I was looking for skincare, and saw a new product in the Cetaphil shelf. It is both moisturiser and sunblock, so the engineer in me who loves efficiency said something rare: "perfect".
I'm near the end of the bottle now. I use it with L'Oreal pressed powder (I've yet to be enlightened to foundations). Together, both products are doing well on my face.
I feel SPF 15 is sufficient enough for my indoor life. However, I haven't inspected the ingredients and read the science yet to erase all doubts.
I'm finally enlightened after reading sunscreen science literature. Unfortunately, SPF 15 and non-dedicated sunscreens are no longer enough for me. I don't even have to check the ingredients of this one. I want more protection!
I like this stuff a lot! When i first got it when i rubbed it in, it almost felt like a burning sensation. Also, it left my face looking a little sticky, but maybe I was jsut using it too much. Anyways after using it for a while, I loved it! It makes my skin so smooth and its great it protects against the sun :) Now i really like it, i might try out some other ones but this ones definitely good for dry, normal or oily skin!
READ UPDATE BELOW!
I had run out of my usual day moisturizer (i've been using dove essential nutrients daily face lotion +spf) and i wanted to try something new. I came across this one and thought it would be perfect for me because i love all cetaphil's other products as they are gentle on my skin. The first few times i used this moisturizer it seemed pretty normal, however i wasn't keen on the slightly sunscreen like smell. After a few days of using this, seconds after i applied it my skin felt like it was on fire! it felt so inflamed, hot and had a burning sensation. It also made my skin feel dryer than it was before i put the moisturizer on. I'm very disappointed with this product as i expect so much more from cetaphil, i dont know what they put in it, but it certainly wasn't friendly to my skin!
I decided to use this product for a little longer as i really hoped i would see a miracle (i love cetaphil's other products). I've been using it now for maybe a month, and i would now classify it as just average. Its not burning my skin anymore, but i dont feel it works a miracle either. Its alright (as in it does the job, but nothing amazing), but for the price of it, it isnt worh it. I wont be purchasing it again.
