With 504 reviews and an 82% repurchase rate, my following review is going against the grain, you've been warned...I had high hopes for this moisturizer after reading the reviews. But the evidence is clear on my face: my face does not like it. It burns when I put it on. And I have red splotches on both my cheeks, which I am currently trying to hide with powder. The first few days, I felt slightly itchy all day wearing this. It's been about a week now, and it's not working for me. It seems OK for my legs, but I was looking for a face moisturizer. It was $24 CAD and I'm going to return it. I look worse for the wear. Continuing the hunt for a good moisturizer...

I don't use this all the time because it is pretty heavy and I already use the moisturizer in step 7, but if I'm feeling particularly dry that day, I will go in with this moisturizer all over my face, neck, ears, everything to really really feel nice and hydrated. I wouldn't recommend this product if you're at all oily because it does feel a little greasy and heavy, but if you're dry to normal, this is an absolute lifesaver for dry days when you need an extra dose of moisture in your routine.

So far so good. Seems to be a very good moisturizer for the money. Since the skin on my face is no different than the skin on my body I don'y see any reason to not use it on my face. I tested it with my favorite foundation- L'oreal true match-and it plays well, but have not tested it with sunscreen or tretinoin so I will need to report back. I can't imagine it will not play well with either of those, but you never know. Takes a few minutes to fully sink in. Skin feels nice and smooth. Definitely need to get the pump.

Packaging could be improved for hygiene purposes. In a tube is more hygenic. Less exposure to air from constantly opening and fingers being dipped in. My go to face cream! I layer it on before my face sunscreen everyday and also use it as a night cream. Worth the price. Great product. Also fragrance free.

I am completely taken aback that an adored product with such a high number of excellent reviews was so incredibly awful. I did extensive research looking for a good unscented moisturiser for my sensitive, dry, dehydrated skin. I was also interested in trying something affordable with ceramides to assist in repairing the moisture barrier. This product has positive reviews here, beautypedia, reddit etc, and sure, in the past I've tried some popular things that have been perhaps a bit 'meh', but not this truly bad. This stuff for me was an actual skin destroyer. Firstly, it burned when I applied it, but I persisted because I thought that it may be performing healing magic on my skin barrier (it's said that bland moisturisers can feel burny if your skin is dehydrated and your barrier is compromised). Secondly, it genuinely didn't moisturise well at all - in the mornings my skin looked 5 years older, incredibly crepey and dry. Thirdly, if the first two weren't bad enough, it broke me out horrendously. No product has ever broken me out so badly. I do get hormonal breakouts occasionally, but have never experienced anything like this, ever. Because I was so shocked, I have since looked into this further and if you do a quick google search on cerave + breakouts (or similar) you will encounter a litany of tales of people with similar situations to mine. I think it's really important to make it more widely known that this popular product has unfortunately had a negative effect on many people's skin. Consider this my dismayed public service announcement. I hope it works for you, it obviously does for many, but if you're one of the unlucky ones, you're not alone. Obviously would never repurchase. I'm even reluctant to use it up on my legs. I give it a point for having a pump!

I am eczema prone, especially on my face. Last year, my eczema flared up badly on my hairline, my skin was flaking and I got discoloration. It was really ugly and it impacted my self esteem and confidence negatively whenever I went out of the house. The area became whiter than the rest of my face. I tried everything, Aveeno, chinese creams, doctor's prescription ketoconazole, ketoconazole shampoo, etc but they only calmed down my eczema for a few days. I finally gave this a try since this one is also eczema certified, and it was like magic. Within a few uses (2 - 3 times a day), the itch went away and the flare up calmed down permanently. I was able to bring it back to it's normal color. This was my savior. The price is very affordable for this big tube, and I share it with my family for facial moisturizer as well. It works great. If you have eczema and nothing works, try this one maybe this could help like in my case.

Ugh, this cream burned/stung my skin. Had to wash it off within 30 seconds. Returned it to Walmart and the lady at the counter said it did the same to her sensitive skin. Had much better luck with Curel Fragrance-Free for a ceramide cream/lotion and it's much less expensive. I also use Vanicream products with no problem. FYI, Cerave is now owned by Loreal.

One of the creams recommended by my Dermatologist.. I buy this in the 16 oz. jar with the pump for around 12.00. I've never used this on my face. If I use Cerave on my face I use the facial lotion PM but my husband uses it on his face and never has a problem with it irritating his skin.This is a very good body moisturizer but it takes a while to show the effects if you have very dry skin. Give it a chance to work. My legs tend to be so dry and this keeps them smooth and silky. It's best to use it right after your bath or shower while your skin is still barely damp. It is good enough on it's own, but I began to add a few drops of NOW Sweet Almond Oil and mix it in my hand then apply and it works MUCH better for me that way. No greasy feeling either. The oil seems to make the Cerave absorb into the skin better. I have no clue why, but t does. About the product: Provides 24-hour hydration and helps restore the protective skin barrier with three essential ceramides (1,3,6-II). Formulated with hyaluronic acid to help retain skin’s natural moisture. Utilizes patented MVE® controlled-release technology to help replenish ceramides and deliver long lasting moisturization. Free of fragrance and oil, hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic and non-irritating Ideal for normal to dry skin

I was looking for something more moisturising than Sebamed Clear Face gel which does not clog my pores or irritate my senstive acne prone skin which is oily with dry patches. I read so many good reviews and wanted so much to like this. This Cerave cream not only clogged my pores but also gave me 2 big pimples on my nose. So disappointed. I quickly switched back to Sebamed which calmed my skin down. Now Im back to looking for a better moisturiser. Thank goodness for my Sebamed gel though.

I have normal-to-slightly-dry skin. This is literally the best BODY moisturizer I've ever tried (I would never use this one on my face - it feels too heavy for that, and Cerave has moisturizers specifically for the face). I've tried a pretty huge amount of different moisturizers, and this tops all of those: it has truly great ingredients, and it makes my skin super soft and moisturizes very well. I actually really wanted to have a non-scented moisturizer for my body, as it is simply better for the skin - perfume breaks down collagen over time. However, many non-scented moisturizers have a particular smell, but some have it stronger than others. With this one, the smell dissipates quickly, so I'm not left with it on my clothes. I always use moisturizer after showering, but wen I switched to this one, I almost immediately felt my skin go from soft to even softer - I could feel my skin was softer when I was showering, and it wasn't just product coming off - this moisturizer had actually improved my skin :) However: this does NOT work for my hands - it makes no difference there, basically - my hands can get almost the same texture as a turtle, and this can't fix that.BTW, I have this in a pump jar, so, it DOES come in packaging that you don't have to dip your fingers into :)
