Bought this derm-recommened moisturizer for my face, and it was way too heavy and caused breakouts. I'd bought the large tub, so I decided to try on my body. It makes me itch, so bad that I'm leaving claw marks on my skin when I use it. This is going in the trash.
can't get enough of this stuff - literally!!! i've moved to london and can't buy this anymore. luckily when my last big tub was running out (a good 4-5 months after buying it) my parents were coming out to visit and i coaxed my dad into smuggling a tub over for me :)
i have skin which can be quite oil but dry all at the same time (i didn't realize that was possible! it feels really dry after being cleaned and sitting around with nothing on, yet also seems to get shiny throughout the day.) since i've got pretty sensitive skin which likes to pop up spots at any given opportunity, i wanted to go with something nice and mild.
not only does this stuff solve my facial moisture woes, i can use it all over, too. i have the most mild case of eczema on my elbows (they tend to build up dry skin and form little, disgusting bumps. eeew!), arms and sometimes legs. this stuff eases all that to the point that i can tell within a day if i'm using a different moisturizer.
if i could go around smothering this on every person i saw with any square inch of dryness, i would! instead i'll have to settle for dousing myself in it and recommending it to everyone i know!
I got the one in the tube, hoping it would have more hydration than the LRP toleriane cream, and for less money. It really feels almost exactly like it, except that it caused stinging and itchiness that lasted for a couple days, and some tiny blisters on my cheeks (those went away quicker, thankfully). For most people, this seems to work just fine, but my skin is very sensitive and dry, and a little acne prone. I recently read the skin type solution and learned that some people have sensitivity to propylene glycol (the #3 ingredient in this product), which is a moisturizing agent that most people can use with no problem. So, always check the label!
This would be good as a body cream. I tried it on my face, and it made me break out. For some reason, all of Cetaphil's products don't work for me. I have combination/sensitive/acne-prone skin.
I love this stuff. I use it on my psoriasis patches. It's thick, rich, and completely unscented. I know the tub isn't the most hygenic packaging, but I love it because I just have to barely touch the cream to get a little bit on my fingertip, then apply it to my skin. I can control exactly how much I use with no product waste, as there would be with a tube or pump lotion. It is a body cream, not a facial moisturizer (unless you have eczema, psoriasis, or a similar condition on your face). I like this a lot better than other lotions I've tried. Eucerin is too sticky and Aveeno has an odd, albeit faint scent. This is odorless and slick.
I bought the one in the tube and am very happy with it. I only use it at night, because it's richer than the lotion, but with this and a good eye cream, I'm all set for bed. I like that it really absorbs into the skin, not leaving it too greasy. Gentle moisturization and cheap!
Bought this at Sam's Club for about 9 bucks. Very nice for my itchy legs with eczema. Soft, soothing, no fragrance. Great for after shaving.
I have combination skin that is dry and cracking one day and the next oily and broken out. I have added this cream to my nightly routine and i have to say that it is a miracle. I have sensitive allergies and I love that this cream is scent and irritant free. I've used it during a break out, and it didn't clog my pores at all! In fact, I believe it helped the break out heal! I read some of the other reviews that the cream made their skin feel greasy. I've learned that the phrase "a little goes a long way" is especially true with this product. You don't need nearly as much as you think.
A moisturizer shoudn't burn your skin like this one does. It's terrible, thats all I can say.
This is way too rich for my skin and made my face feel hot every time I put it on!!! Very greasy and a non pleasant smell.
