The Cerave cream in a tub isn't bad, but it's not the best thing ever either. It moisturizes decently and didn't cause me any breakouts, but it felt so... odd. Instead of feeling like it absorbed fully, it felt like my skin was coated with a film. That being said, the lotion version has been great for me, so it might just be something subtle about my skin that causes the lotion to work better than the cream for me. Overall, it's not bad, and it could be worth a shot for you, but the lotion version wins for me.

Although dermatologist recommended and a good price, this is not for me. I had high hopes and know it works for others but my skin needs a bit more. I had the cream in the jar which brings into question its own issues: contamination and losing efficacy when repeatedly being exposed to air. It did an o.k. job of moisturizing and keeping my skin soft during the summer months and was certainly light enough but once fall came it no longer worked for me. In addition, after using it for a few it seemed to leave this odor like a musty smell or like lotion gone bad. Hard to describe but definitely not pleasant. I am sensitive to smells so not sure if anyone else would have noticed. Ended up tossing it bc of the smell & bc I wasn't sure if the cream had indeed gone bad.

This cream doesn't seem moisturizing enough on the arms and lower body. It was a little heavy on my face though. Not sure what to think of it. I gave it 4 stars because it doesn't seem too problematic and probably worth a shot.

Really good at moisturizing my hole body and face. It absorbs right away and makes my skin feeling supple.

HG winter face cream. I absolutely love this stuff. It's thick and creamy but not GREASY. It gives your face a lovely matte finish actually. I have oily and acne prone skin but I use Retin-A which dries your skin out like nobodies business. This cream saves my skin and flakies are no match for it. :) I will repurchase forever!

I use this on my face and this review is coming from somebody who struggles with acne prone skin and I can say that this has not made me break out! I love the thickness of the cream, although its not too thick. Its also very moisturizing without making my face look any oilier than it already is. Can actually look matte. Also no fragrance! I say absolutely try it out!

Not sure why people are slathering this on their face unless they actually want to get acne. It's not the same formula as the PM lotion; it has petroleum aka Vaseline in it so unless you already know that petroleum doesn't break you out, I don't see why you would use this on the face. Rating this poorly for that reason is misleading. It's a beautiful body moisturizer that's every bit as good as the pricey oil-based luxury brands - but like those it's staying power is less than Aveeno products with dimethicone as their active ingredient. I use this at night before bed for a boost as it has great ingredients that improve the skin's overall resiliency.

I have sensitive, acne prone skin that clogs easily so I was pretty wary of this cream after reading a lot of the reviews. The area around my chin developed a terrible rash after using some harsh acne wipes and only got worse due to the cold, dry weather. I was pretty desperate so I bought the travel sized version of this in case it eventually broke me out. I've been using it for a week now and have no new clogs or blemishes so I'm going to hope that will be the case, because let me tell you, this cream is wonderful. My rash was gone after two days, my complexion seems to almost be improving and it has proven to be an excellent eye cream as well. I'm always hearing people say that certain creams have a plumping effect on their skin and I always thought that was bs because I have never experienced that...until now! My skin is hydrated, dewy and I find this cream also works beautifully under make up. I am in love! If it ends up breaking me out I will be heartbroken!

i wanted to love this stuff, i swear, i really did.

there are just so many good reviews about it all over the internet, and i figured with my dry skin that this would be perfect for me. i had been using cerave pm in the tiny little bottle for the exorbitant price for years, and when i compared the ingredients in this cream with the pm, i was shocked to find out they were nearly the same thing, but the cream had waaaaay more product in it. so in theory, they should work the same, right? unfortunately, in practice, that did not hold true. i found the cream to be just as moisturizing as my pm, but it would ball up and make my face look like it was peeling off whenever i put makeup over it. it also ended up breaking me out - what i was praying was just random pimples proved to be from the cream. my skin does not usually break out, and i normally have maybe one or two pimples at any given time, so this was cause for alarm, unfortunately.

i stopped using the cream immediately and returned it. i'm sad i didn't see why everyone on the internet loves this stuff so much. with dry skin, i'm definitely the targeted market for this stuff. i have no idea why it didn't work for me, but whatever. i'll just go back to my trusty cerave pm.

Ughhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. The texture is so nice, it feels so nice when you put it on. Why did it have to break me out? I love this stuff -it just doesn't love me back.
