solid product.
doesn't leave skin greasy and absorbs quickly, its cheap, and INCREDIBLE FOR DRY FLAKY SKIN.
ive had flaky skin my entire life and three months of this and no flakes.
i tried everything, 80 dollar exfoliators from sephora, oils, moisturizers, special foundations, everything, and three months of this and the flakiness is almost completely gone.
this is the holy grail of moisturizers for dry skin, 10/10 would recommend, (plus its hella cheap so what do you have to lose)

For the AU/NZ/CAN version (US has slightly different ingredients):

• Need only small amount at a time, tube lasts forever. (would prefer a pump)
• Sinks into skin nicely. Leaves a slight sheen on thinner parts of skin (nose, forehead)
• Never caused a breakout.
• Only thing my skin wants when it's having a bad time.
• Simple, feels good, skin soft, it works. Leaves the other stuff to serums and everything else.
• Medium consistency

I have hormonal, very dry, extremely sensitive skin.
Been using this for about 5 years now with no problems.
If you matte your face with other products this one shouldn't be an issue.

I bought the giant tub of moisturizer because my facial skin was extremely dry and chapped from the Canadian winters weather, to the point that my skin was flaky and red.

PROS: It works really well - I put on a thick layer of this overnight and my skin would be totally better in the morning! No weird scent, it absorbs fine, and doesn't break me out.

CONS: I recently realized that it contains various parabens, so I will not be purchasing this in the future. Also it's kind of pricey for a drugstore product ($26).

This is a really lovely moisturiser. It's hydrating without being oily and it calms my face when I've been overdoing it with exfoliators or the wrong products. It's lovely under makeup - foundation looks great over it and there is minimal oil breakthrough on my dehydrated combination skin. I have fussy skin that reacts to many skincare products by either breaking out in big cystic pimples or by going red and flaky, but the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream never breaks me out or irritates my skin. When I use this at night I wake up with smooth, healthy-looking skin. It doesn't have fancy ingredients, it's just a straight-forward, uncomplicated moisturiser that works. Love it.

This cream is very moisturizing, however, i don't find it to do more than any other basic moisturizing cream that you can buy in the drugstores. I have very sensitive, dry, skin that is flaky and irritated because of my being on prescription acne medications for quite a long amount of years, plus my skin is acne prone, and i suffer with seborrheic dermatitis as well. I do rotate between moisturizers on my face, because this mousturizer is too heavy to use on my face on a daily basis, or else it starts clogging my pores up and i start seeing pimples crop up. Which is why, i am very careful about exactly how much of it i do apoly to my face, when i do use it.

Also, thank God my dermatologist gives out Cetaphil coupons, which is why, i don't have to pay full price for this stuff, whenever i choose to re-buy it.

If you are someone whose skin, combination, oily, or very oily, I would highly recommend avoiding usage of this stuff on your face. As, it would be way to much for your skin. Instead, it would best to use it on your body, if you do dcided to get it.

I use this cream on my hands, arms, legs, and feet. My skin is very dry and sensitive. This moisturizes and gives a subtle sheen to my skin without because being greasy. I'm glad that it has no fragrance because it can be irritating and sometimes I have nasal allergies. I prefer this jar version because it's much easier to get all of the product out.

This seems a bit greasier than Cerave cream or takes a little while to absorb. But I think I prefer Cetaphil in this cold dry weather, at least for my feet and lower body.

Cetaphil Moisturising Cream is a simple, but effective moisturiser. It doesn't battle against wrinkles or give you a facelift, but if you are looking for a unscented moisturiser that delivers effective moisturising results on dry and flaky skin types, that is affordable and isn't overly greasy or heavy on your skin then you've come to the right place.

I've been using this twice daily for a little while now, and not only does my naked skin look noticeably more radiant, but it hasn't flaked at all. I haven't changed any other product in my skincare regime. Since using this I haven't suffered from additional breakouts, or had any itches or rashes on my dry and sensitive skin.

Cetaphil Moisturising Cream gets extra brownie points with me as it is not just for the face - it works well on other body parts for me, especially used as a hand cream.

This is the most moisturizing cream I have ever used on my face. I absolutely love it in the winter months when my skin is on the drier side. There's no scent so it won't irritate the skin. The only things I don't like is how 1.) it is in a tub. With it being in a tub, if you keep sticking your fingers into it, it can be a bit unsanitary. Also, it is a pretty deep tub, so if you stick your fingers into it, if your nails are long, it will get under your nails which is a bit annoying. 2.) you have to wash your hands as soon as you apply this because it will burn your eyes if you rub them. Other than that, it is overall a great product and my skin is extremely hydrated every time I use this.

My skin is dry and sensitive.

I have the three ounce tube. I use this cream on my face as a daytime moisturizer, over Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum.

Cetaphil doesn't irritate and it's sufficiently moisturizing. It feels good on my skin all day. It blends easily and it works well under makeup.

This is a simple but effective moisturizer with beneficial ingredients, good for drier skins.
