This cream is very thick, very heavy, very greasy, only for the driest of skins. And really only for overnight. My skin is more combo and this cream took a long time to sink in and just continued to look greasy. I am used to some of DHC's more silky or gel-like creams, so this was just way too much for me. For comparison, it is even thicker than their Tocophero E cream. Anyway, I'd probably just say it's not for me, and better for those with drier skin, but it did cause a slight burning and I don't associate that with any other ceramide product I've used. Also, not a fan of jar packaging for such an expensive product. So, only two lippies from me.

This is a good cream for dry skin. I initially tried the Ceramide and the Vitamin E Cream, since those are the only 2 that DHC specifically named for dry skin. I found that the Vit. E cream was not hydrating enough for my skin. Ceramide works nicely, and Olive Leaf Cream is just a teeny tiny bit richer and more softening, even though it's noted for all skins types. I top it with olive oil, and it's nice for dry, winter skin. This cream is OK for super-dry skin. Not great. There's no way I could use it alone w/o the olive oil on top.

This is the best moisturizer for dry skin. It is the only one so far that keeps my skin moisturized for more than an hour or so and it absorbs well. I would not have a used it a few years ago when my skin was not as dry as it is now, so that needs to be taken into account. I have not had any problem with it going rancid like another reviewer, and I've been using it for a couple of years. It is thick and rich and is the best thing for winter dryness that I have found.

Apparently this becomes rancid very quickly, even by the first use in my case. The stench was unbelievable. For a moment I wondered if it was supposed to smell that way but I quickly dismissed that thought because it was such an obvious rotten odor. I would definitely not repurchase this and I don't recommend it to anyone since it goes bad in such a short amount of time.

This cream is very thick, comes in a small jar with an oval profile and pearly white cap. You don't need very much to apply--I use a lump about the size of a pencil eraser. It goes on well if you dab it around the face and blend; as it warms up, it spreads well. It absorbs quickly, faster than the ceramide milk as a matter of fact.
I was using Tocopherol E cream, then the Extra Nighttime Moisturizer from DHC but this cream is more effective in keeping my skin from drying out in winter. Only the Olive Leaf Cream worked better (rather like Creme de la Mer) but the Ceramide is very price-worthy in the ceramide set. I do notice my skin looks great in the morning, so this must be doing something right.
My routine happens to be: remove makeup with Deep Cleansing Oil, rinse, wash with Mild Soap. Use cotton and the Ceramide Quick (supposed to be moisturizer but it's a toner that doesn't dry you out.) Then I apply this cream. During the day, I wash with Mild Soap, then toner, then apply the milk version. I'm very happy with this and probably will be a customer for life; have tried EL and the scent burns my skin. Clinique didn't do anything for me, and Mary Kay was not bad, but seems to go "off" in a short while.

Wow. I gotta say I am very impressed with this. I got a sample "just in time" for my dried out, Differin-treated winter face. I put it on at night on damp skin and my skin sucked it right up. Not greasy, very soft. I used it as a buffer for the Differin and my skin actually looked good when i woke up in the morning (plump). I'm ordering a full size TODAY.
UPDATE: I am so happy with this I could pretty much cry. :-) I have never been able to use a proper night cream because everything i tried was greasy or thick or broke me out. This is perfect. Might be too heavy for summer, but i will try the milk insead then.
UPDATE AGAIN. :-) This is a HG for sure. It's the only thing that will "fix" my skin no matter what's wrong with it, and lately that seems like alot as i am trying new products. Lessens redness, smooths winter-dry cheeks, even seems to help with clogged pores.

This product works well for my aging, over 60, skin. I tried the Coenzyme Q-10 Cream which did nothing for me so went back to the Ceramide Cream.

This is described in DHC lit as a thick rich cream. It is so thick that it's almost a putty. It's really hard to spread and just sits on top of the skin like a coat of butter. It takes forever to absorb and I'm not sure it ever fully did. Oddly, though it's pitched as for sensitive skin, I had some burning when applying this one - and I haven't had this from other DHC creams. It's not even a remotely elegant formulation. This is one of the few total busts from DHC. Call the skin care help specialists and ask for their help to find the right product for you prior to ordering this one.
