A bare bones, inexpensive moisturizer that does the job perfectly for me. I had really done a number on my skin with AHA's and BHA's. I didn't realize I was using them too frequently for my skin type. This was one of the many Cetaphil products recommended by my Doctor. I have very sensitive skin and this product did not irritate it in any way. The level of moisturization is perfect for my aging combo skin. However, if you have oily skin you may find it too emollient. Let's be honest. When have you ever heard a Dr. or Dermatologist recommend LaMer or Remede, or even Paula's Choice? You haven't (although my Doc said the PC AHA is a fine product and I should have no problem using it every other day instead of the 2x's per day I had been using it). From now on I'm using what the Doc recommends. I'm tired of having my wallet sucked dry by greedy cosmetics companies!
I used to use Neutrogena spf 15 tinted, but htey changed it to a greasy heavy gunky new formula, so i decided to try this. My firend Jen has tehe smoothest most pristine complexion and she says this is her ultimate favorite moisturizer. I know it didnt work for some ppl, but i love this. Its really moisturizing, and stays on all day, makes my makeup go on smoothly. As of yet i havent gotten any in my eyes, so i feel no burn. im also happy it has an spf, if i had to add another coat to my face with a seperate spf, id scream.
I have been searching for a good SPF lotion for my combo/acne prone skin and this product was not it. After applying it, the lotion did not absorb at all. This thick lotion left my face greasy and shiny. If I rubbed my eye at all during the day, the moisturizer would get in it and sting like crazy!
OUCH!!! I used to live by Cetaphil's Cleasing Lotion (I now use Keihl's) and at the time was struggling to find a facial moisturizer that my sensitive face could handle. I was so relieved when Cetaphil came out with their Daily Facial Moisturizer becuase I had such luck with their cleanser...boy was I worng. My skin didn't even absorb it - it was just an oil slick on my face. To top it off - I broke out in a rash that itched for days and was so bad I couldn't even wear makeup. Recovery time was almost a week.
I love this mosturizer; it's the greatest I've ever found. It's not greasy, it absorbs quickly, and I definitely need an spf with my pale, pale skin. I love how it doesn't make me break out, like most other mosturizers (even if they say they're oil free and non-comegenic) do. It's lightweight, but it can handle my winter dry skin just as well as my summer not dry skin. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with problem skin.
I really wanted this to be the moisturizer for me, as I have found the other Cetaphil products to be excellent, but unfortunately it is not only too greasy for my preference (more greasy, even, than the Cetaphil cream-in-a-tub) but it also gives me an itchy and unattractive rash on the sides of my mouth. My skin can tolerate a wide range of ingredients and I have never had this kind of reaction before, but I have never used a sunscreen with avobenzone either and I think that's the problem ingredient. Guess I'll steer clear of avobenzone and take my chances with the "oxides."
I used up a bottle of this, and I sort of have mixed feeling about this moisturizer. It moisturizes well, but it tends to feel greasy if you put too much on. I like cetaphil products, but I'm not sure I'll be repurchasing this one.
My dermatologist recommended this product to me. I have to say that I love cetaphil's cleansers but this spf moisturizer wasn't that good. My skintype is comb/oily. This product is very greasy and made my face look like an oil slick. Also it burns when applied especially if you get near the eyes. I wouldn't recommend it for oily skintypes.
The key selling point of this lotion was that it claimed to be "non-greasy & lightweight" as well as having SPF. When I first used it, I was disappointed--the texture was greasier than I expected, and it burned the crap out of my eyes (which I painfully discovered driving 75 on the beltway). Since then, I've learned that a good way to apply moisturizer is to "pat" it on gently rather than to smear a generous amount all over. Feels like a different moisturizer now, not greasy at all and moisturizes well, although maybe that's because it is now winter. I do use a different SPF around my eyes however, an excellent liquid sunblock by Lacvert.
This is way too rich for my skin. It left my face feeling like a grease pit and it caused me to suffer a massive breakout.
