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!
