The cap lid broke off, but at least I know I'm not just paying for packaging :P
You need very little of the product for your face and neck. It absorbs quickly, isn't greasy, and leaves my skin dewy :)
I bought the smaller size because I was just buying it because of makeupalley reviews, but I'll get the bigger one next time. It'll probably be, like, a year from now, because there's so much and you need so little!
Not a big fan of cetaphil. From the facewash to this moisturizing lotion, I have had some pretty garbage results. The facewash made left my skin a little irritated and just tight and uncomfortable. This moisturizer just doesn't do the trick for me as it leaves my face somewhat dry and just doesn't do a great job for me. I know people that actually enjoy using it so I am not going to bash it but it definitely didn't work great for me
While this is indeed very moisturizing, no matter how little I use, my face feels super greasy. It doesn't seem to penetrate my skin, so when I wash in the morning after having it on at night, my face returns to its initial dryness. Of course, that's on the days when it's dry. I usually have super oily skin, and this moisturizer makes me look like an oil slick. :(
I'm bummed about this not working because I love Cetaphil's cleanser to death. Sigh.
Why do I keep straying from Cetaphil? It's not as trendy or fancy as a lot of the products out there, so I guess I am just tempted to try something new. I have wasted hundreds, probably more like thousands of dollars on different skincare products. This is the only thing that really works for me. Avene is ok, but not moisturizing enough. As soon as I switch back back to Cetaphil, I get comments on how my skin glows and I look 5 years younger! Loves it!!
I use this on my dry patches as well as treatment on my dried-out acne-prone areas that I previously zapped with benzoyl peroxide. Practically instantaneous relief and the roughness and flakiness is all gone overnight. Though it is far too oily and overwhelming to use alone as a daily moisturiser, it is definitely something to keep around if you're prone to dryness. (especially if you do a lot of spot-treatment with BP like me)
It's too oily for my face, so I use it as a body moisturiser. Does a pretty good job all year.
This lotion does a good job moisturizing but feels too heavy and greasy for morning use. I only put it on a night.
I like it. I've got oily skin and I needed something for my face after using benzoyl peroxide. This gets the job done and there's no stinging, fragrance, or breakouts as a result of using this product. It does leave a sheen on your face but I don't really mind it. It's GREAT for the body, I love to use it on my legs after shaving.
Edit: This stuff is toooo heavy to use on the face. Makeup looks botched on top of it. I've gotten lots of blackheads from it. I will just use it for my legs.
I didn't like this moisturizer. I felt it was very oily on my skin and not a very good makeup base.
i gave this a rating of four stars only because it can make my skin look a little greasy - at first. if i wait about fifteen minutes for it to soak in - it's perfect.
cetaphil products have changed my life. and that's no exaggeration.
if you are suffering from any type of acne, please try cetaphil.
