At first i was scared to use this on my face because i thougt i would break out. Wrong this has improve my skin. I hav very dry skin and this help my skin plus it gives a sutle dewy look. Just luv it
I had been previously using a face moisturizer that I felt was too rich, and therefore I developed milia on my forehead. I finally decided to get a more lightweight moisturizer, so that I could fix the texture of my skin. I like oil-free lotions that are light but not too light that my skin feels dry and I get oilier. I also don't like fragrance, so I chose Cetaphil because it's marketed for skin that's on the more sensitive side.
It hasn't broken me out, and with the products I'm using with it, my milia problem is getting better, but I don't think that I'll repurchase this lotion because I feel like when I put it on, I feel like it's just sitting on my face, either not fully absorbing, or maybe it's still a bit too heavy for my skin.
I do like the pump bottle for sanitary reasons, and I think I'll use it on my body, so I don't feel like I wasted my money.
I love this product.
Calms my skin down, moisturises really well and is really silky to apply. Doesn't clog my pores. (I am very acne prone)
Great base under foundation.
HG for sure! Does not clog me at all. Very moisturizing. Great under makeup. Gets rid of flakes. Couldn't ask for much more.
Update: It does clog me, and is a bit too greasy, I just use it on my hands and body now.
The one that sayd extra moisture is the perfect body cream for intense moisture. The other is better for the face. Its really hard to tell them apart.
I am torn with this product. It is the only moisturizer I have found that really, truly leaves my skin fully satisfied. It clears up any dry patches and soothes irritated areas. It's cheap and easy to find, and you get lots in a bottle. It makes my makeup go on very smoothly, too.
However, it's really greasy and thick and doesn't absorb very well. It also has a terrible shine that doesn't go away and stays sticky to the touch all day.
I dunno. I love it for its moisturizing power, but it does take some getting used to.
My pediatrician recommended this for my dry, sensitive, atopic skin and since then it's been my moisturizer of choice so much so I use it on my 2 yr old. It was perfect and I never understood negative reviews until I went back to it after a year or so of using alternatives. Cetaphil BURNS!!! like the dickens. I couldn't believe it. I rinsed my face in the morning, put it on and started to get a warm sensation on my face, that gradually turned into uncomfortable burning. Maybe my skin is getting more reactive as I'm getting older, but I cannot believe I could have been causing my baby discomfort after every bath. Needless to say, I'm not repurchasing or putting it on my little one.
I have terrible combination skin: moderate acne, oily forehead, oily but flaky nose, flaky and dry inner cheeks (cheeks near my nose), normal outer cheeks, normal jaw, normal chin, oily upper lip, dry mouth corners. Eeeek it's like a fricken nightmare drying to control all the parts of my face! Can't my skin just be all oily, all dry, or just all normal?
Yes, with this product, it CAN. All I have to do is rub a little bit of this moisturizer all over my face, focusing on the dry and flaky areas, and wait a minute or two until it dries, and voila--I have absolutely NO flakes or dry areas at ALL. I was afraid that this moisturizer would just contribute to the oily areas of my face, but nope. The oiliness didn't diminish, but it didn't get worse either--that's all I ask for! I also like to use this on my legs, which are dry and look shiny and somewhat scaly. Hopefully it'll help my legs retain their moisture (I'll update if I see any improvement).
I've never used any other moisturizer before, so I can't say whether there are better moisturizers for my skin or not, but with a great moisturizer like this one, I don't think I'll ever switch.
Plus, the bottle is huge, a little goes a loooooooooooong way, and there's a ton of product. For a face as small as mine, I don't think I'll ever even run out.
I got it for $13 for a 16 oz. bottle, which, if you do the math, is only $0.81 per oz.! (DAYUM!!!!!!!)
You can get it in smaller bottles too (2 oz., 8 oz., 16 oz., and 20 oz.).
Would I repurchase? Definitely!
This a great all-purpose moisturizer. I use it all over my body including face. Not much is needed to cover large areas (ex. a 1/3 of a pump for my face.) It leaves a bit of shine on the face which makes it more like a night moisturizer for my combination skin. It does the job really well and sinks into the face really fast. My dry patches clear up in a few days after using it.
this is the most beautiful moistouriser that Ihave ever tried in my entire life (except during summers) t is meant for sensitive skin and it TOTALLY fixed my acne, my folliculitis, my rashes and my itchiness. I have really oily skin that cannot tolerate heavy creams but it did very well with this. I also have very dry skin on my body that cannot tolerate heavy lotions or creams. seriously. if i apply a heavy lotion i'd get rashes, get itchy and start sweating. but mty skin is dry. this fixed it all.
but again i'll say, this is not for summer and nor is it for humid climates.
