This is the first time I have ever bothered to write a review of a product, but the positive effect this cream has had on my skin just made me need to shout it from the roof tops.
My skin barrier had been destroyed by what I thought was good for preventing ageing- retinol. Having sensitive skin for many years, using retinol was a big mistake even though experts say sensitive skin should still use retinol. It caused redness, flaking, and my fine lines actually looked worse- years after getting past the expected "uglies" phase. I knew it wasn't suited to my skin type, but I plodded on hoping it was just taking time and I needed to be more patient.
After looking at my flaking skin in the mirror yet another morning upon waking, I decided enough was enough. What is the point of trying to prevent wrinkles if my skin constantly looks bad while trying to achieve it? I decided I didn't mind if I had some fine lines, but I really needed to restore the health of my skin foremost. I binned my jar of retinol and started to research online on products to heal my skin.
This is how I came accross Cera Ve and it's rave reviews. Like everything online, I thought it must be too good to be true. But reading post after post on this site, people touting it's benefits- I couldn't ignore it. I went and purchased Cera Ve and I am very thankful I did.
Applying it for the first time, I kid you not- I checked out my face 20 mins after applying and my skin was literally glowing. I thought "wtf?". The cream is rich, but my skin drank up the moisture. It hasn't made my pimples worse, I get fewer of them. Every morning I wake up and don't see my skin flaking is such a wonderful feeling I won't tire of. It has only been 1 week of using it, but already I can see it has improved my skin tone and quality more than 2 years of retinol ever did. I love that it contains all of the important ingredients skin needs, especially ceramides.
I am so happy and impressed with Cera Ve, and look forward to seeing my skin constantly improve, as well as try the rest of their products too.
