I've been happily using this since end of Oct 2018 with no issues (and it mixes amazing with foundations) but as of late, I had been starting to break out in cystic acne (painful, infectious) and my skin was becoming SO DRY out of the blue. I at FIRST - thought it was this lotion ..... BUT was able to rule out that it was NOT this amazing lotion. (so super yay!)
However, since I did some research because of the odd skin issues, I found that almost all of the ingredients in this may be plant derived/coconut derivatives ( example: DICAPRYLYL CARBONATE, Capryl Glycol, Cetyl Alcohol, PEG – 100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol...) not necessarily highly comedogenic, but some of them state "not safe for fungal acne" on CostDNA which may bother some super sensitive folks. Luckily for me - this was absolutely NOT the culprit and I'm gladly back to using it.
(If you are curious, the culprit of the horrible breakout/drying skin was Garnier SkinActive micellar cleansing water in the pink bottle. NEVER AGAIN!)
This is a total first impressions, since Ive only used it two days. What a great serum/light moisturizer! I have pretty reactive skin, anything too scented, too heavy - usually breaks me out. My previous HG moisturizer (Olay sensitive beauty fluid/lotion without SPF) recently changed their ingredients to be more comeodogenic -- so Ive been looking for a new light sensitive moisturizer this entire year. If this formula doesnt break me out, I'll be very happy with this as my new daily moisturizer.
Its very runny, light, and absorbs quickly on the skin. No scent, its not sticky and i even compared it to the Simple rich moisturizer i have been trying as a replacement for my Olay but this stuff is wayyyy better. Not near as thick or sticky. No heavy 'cones and some great ingredients. Its so runny and light, which is what ive been looking for. It absorbs immediately over my BP lotion on my face and doesnt feel greasy or heavy or itchy hours later. Im excited to wear this under my foundation, too. Its a plus that its $12 at any big chain store, has a pump (that locks!) and Im excited to continue to try this daily.
This is the first Cetaphil product ive been able to use on my face for 10 years, mostly because their lotions and cleanser have been a bit greasy/heavy on my skin in the past, so this was a very happy surprise and im glad to have found this. If you are looking for a light moisturizer, definitely try this.
