My normally combo skin went completely crazy on me. It's still pretty oily in places but started to get so so so dry in others. so much so that my makeup started to separated around my chin and jawline. I think the combo of extreme stress, hormonal imbalances and lack of sleep is messing with my skin. I tried a bunch of moisturizers but nothing did the trick. I read the reviews and wanted to give this a try. I started at night and it is very moisturizing but like another user said, very very sticky feeling that won't go away. I tried it under makeup and needless to say it was a disaster so I stuck to putting it on a night only. Every single time I woke up, I woke up to new whiteheads, something I rarely get. I thought maybe it was dairy intake or stress but it was very clear that I broke out after wearing this at night. My skin is a mess now and all I can think of is that it's this lotion because that is the only change in my moisturizing routine. So sadly for me this was a no for my face. I will try on my chest and neck to see if it helps with some other issues I've been having (stupid stress!)

This is an excellent product - it is formulated properly so it can do the job it claims to do. I have dry, sensitive acne prone skin that is very delicate and easily irritated. I have been using this now for about a month, only at night. It has quickly replaced other exfoliate products as it is both gentle and effective. I use Fresh Seaberry oil cleanser followed by La Roche Posay foaming cleanser, Missha First Essence and then this, with my Cliniderm eye cream last. I have been happy with my skin which is really saying something.

So, it does what it's supposed to do, but it leaves my skin STICKY. For HOURS. I'm hypersensitive to the feeling of lotion, but this is a really uncomfortable side effect of this product. However, putting it on before bed allows me to mostly sleep through the gross feeling, waking up with hydrated, smoother skin. It's basically like AmLactin, but smells a wee bit better. I'd buy this over that lotion again, as it works. But I wish it weren't so sticky and I wish it smelled better.

I tried this after needing a lotion this winter for my sensitive and acne-prone skin, and seeing that the ingredients don't seem to have many pore-clogging ingredients. It feels more liquidy than the regular CeraVe lotion, not as whipped, and it's non-greasy but moisturizing on my face. It sometimes tingles a bit, but this only lasts for a few seconds and it does not irritate my skin or make it red. So far, after using it about 2 months, it hasn't caused breakouts or blackheads for me. I get cystic acne pretty often, and this lotion doesn't seem to aggravate it or make it come more often. I like how it makes my skin smooth and comfortable - I don't think the SA or the AHA are doing much, because I believe the pH is a bit too high, but that's not something I was looking for, so it's not a negative for me.
I use it in the following routine: Wash with Simple Hydrating Cleanser, apply either Vitamin C serum or Replenix CF serum, apply this lotion, and follow sunscreen in the AM or Atralin/Aczone in the PM.

Wholly Molley! This stuff is a miracle like someone posted previously. My skin (facial) has been going haywire for almost a year now with rough texture and dryness. The last couple weeks I have actually been uncomfortable with tightness and a bit of a raw or stinging feeling. Have absolutely dried everything from high end creams to Cetaphil cream. Last week I bought the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser and the regular CerVe cream in the tub with the pump. No luck. But, the cream is working wonderfully on my body! So, after reading reviews on this Renewing SA lotion and how so many seem to like it, I thought I'd try it. Really didn't have anything to lose and my next step was calling a Derm. IDK, but it must be the exfoliating qualities of the AHA's and BHA's. Although, I tried my electric brush as well as manually with Clinique's 7 Day Scrub with no results. Anyway, I'm ecstatic that my skin is at about 95% after only 24 hours. This lotion has a very nice consistency, sinks in and leaves my skin feeling velvety and moisturized. And the price $16.99 for 8oz is a great value. The bottle says it is non comedogenic so I'm hoping I don't break out as I have a tendency even at age 64 to get cosmetic induced acne. I'm thinking the salicylate acid in it will help with that as well. I feel a slight sting similar to the Clinique Clarifying Lotion with salicylate acid, but only lasts a few minutes. Makes me feel it's working! IMPORTANT that you use sunscreen when using these exfoliating acids. The newer skin that is exposed is extremely vulnerable to sunburn. Just really pleased so far and so happy when I touch my face to feel soft, smooth and comfortable again!

I've had KP on my upper arms and the back of my thighs since childhood and within the past 5 years, on my face:( ! I started wearing more make up to try and cover it, I tried face masks, coconut oil (which made my face break out but seriously helped the rest of my body) I thought I was just gonna have to save up money to get some kind of professional peel done, but after reading the reviews on this I went to CVS right away and got it. Using it with the Cera Ve hydrating cleanser; my face is almost completely transformed to the point I can't believe it's my skin! And if I'm somewhere where I don't have coconut oil I can use it for my arms and thighs too! After solid use for 1.5 weeks. I'm so happy with this and will continue using it.

My HG. Seriously.

Since my teens, I've suffered from rough, chicken skin on my thighs and triceps areas. I tried every lotion out there, even some of the pricey glycolic acid ones. My Salux cloth helped a bit, but the skin always felt rough, itchy, and each hair follicle was topped with a tiny red dot. Ugly. Uncomfortable. Ew.

After many years, I discovered my chicken skin problem was actually pilaris keratosis. Go figure. My dermatologist prescribed various things, but none of them did much. Surprisingly, when I went gluten-free, my skin improved some, but it never really went away.

Then I tried CeraVe SA lotion. I applied it after every shower, alternating between it and the thicker CeraVe SA cream. Within 3 applications my chicken skin was GONE. The pilaris keratosis was replaced with baby smooth skin like I've never had before.

I hope they NEVER stop making this stuff.

This stuff saved my skin!!! Definitely HG status. I use this for my face. It has replaced all the expensive creams that I have bought at Sephora and from spas. I can't believe I wasted so much money on expensive products that did nothing for the flaking, sensitive, dry skin surrounding my mouth and on my chin. I use it with the Cerave dry skin cleanser. I stumbled upon this in the pharmacy and I wish I had discovered this stuff sooner. It would have saved me a year and a half of frustrations and money wasted.

I LOVE this stuff. I had bought it as a body lotion and then I read an article in which some dermatologists said that the regular Cerave is a great moisturizer and I thought, Why not try it on my face at night? I've only used fairly high-end stuff - Skinceuticals and then moved into Avene to save some money (and I love Avene) but this is the best night cream ever. I feel like my pores have been blurred and my skin overall looks more radiant - my 17-yr-old daughter often comments on it. I often get red dry patches around my nose and I'd classify my skin as sensitive and this cream has been great for that, no problems whatsoever.

Although not marketed as a facial moisturizer this is how I am using it. My skin has gone from oily to combo to dry, has always been acne-prone, as well as sensitive/red with some persistent milia bumps on the forehead despite not having bangs or using any pore-clogging products. Read how great this was and thought "why not?". In a matter of two days (yes only two) my skin is hydrated and most of the milia on my forehead are gone! I don't know how this is the case since I've been using glycolic acid, retinol, and other products for quite some time and haven't seen as impressive results as using this lotion but I'm glad I gave this a go. The lotion leans more to a cream texture, you really don't need much to cover your entire face, probably half a pump will do it. I did experience a tiny amount of tingling around my nose (where I am a little sensitive) but otherwise this lotion was quite comfortable to wear, and is fragrance-free. The second night after applying this I woke up and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me because the texture of my skin was no where near as bumpy as before, skin was hydrated and glowing. Very happy to have found this lotion and highly recommend it if you are experiencing anything like what I have described.
