This is for the UK lotion bottle - for dry to very dry skin. This has been an absolute game changer for me. I have oily, very sensitive skin, which by the end of the day is red and feels itchy. I've struggled to keep any make up on at all, everything just slid off into a puddle, and I spent a fortune on things to try over the past year, different primers, foundations, everything. I'd always be a greasy mess by 2pm.
I started watching a couple of youtube videos, and realised that I'd damaged my skin barrier - the tell-tale signs were the dry itchy skin, the redness, a tight feeling, and suddenly completely rethought what I was doing to my skin. I'd purchased the Cerave moisturising lotion when it came out in the UK, and had used it a bit on my body but didn't think anything of it. After reading how important it was to use ceramides, I spotted this lotion in my cabinet and realised now was the time to try it, and to try it on my face. It's completely changed my skin - my skin is now no longer red by the end of the day, it feels comfortable all day, even when i'm in an air conditioned room, my make up sits beautifully on top of it, and every day when I've woken up it's looked a tiny bit better, with less redness. I've tried the UK face moisturiser Cerave product too, but that didn't have the same amazing results as this. It seems to be priming and protecting my skin better than anything I've used in a long time.
I know the formula of the product is different than the American version, so I thought it would be worth posting them below:
