After having a horrible reaction to an expensive makeup line I had to visit a dermatologist for the first time last year. She suggested I change to Cerave for my cleansing and moisterizing of the ENTIRE body. I had used Cetaphil in the past and told her I didnt feel clean when I used it. She said that is because we are so used to the feeling of stripping our skin of all of its natural oils by using regular bar soaps, which ruins our skin and in the end makes our skin produce even more oil.

Now, per her instructions I use either Cetaphil or more preferred Cerave cleanser  or moisturizer every evening, and simply wash my face with water and a soft, fluffy, clean washcloth in the morning, and follow with the moisturizer.

I havent had a breakout in over 6 months, and my skin feels really nice now!

This cream is far below my expectation. It was a total disappointment. Cerave is highly recommended by my friends to be used on face when having sensitive skin or breakouts. Although it is indeed very gentle and does not irritate my skin or cause me breakouts, it was not moisturizing enough to hydrate my dry skin under new york tough winter weather. I have combination-to-oil skin, this even made my face It was almost impossible to apply foundation on this cream, because it looks like this cream will never get absorbed! After I put it evenly on my face, it leaves big sketches of whites here and there. It will always take a long time for those whites to go away, only when I believe did the cream get absorbed. It was really frustrating. The same problem also exists with Cerave’s moisturizing lotion, but the problem is less severe with that version. Having tried both the cream and the lotion from Cerave, I was convinced that the lotion actually hydrates skin better than the cream, even though the cream feels and looks richer.

          Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

          I use this product religiously. I was "diagnosed" with eczema about 2 years ago and my dermatologist suggested this product to try. He suggested its use after every shower while the skin is still somewhat moist. I think that's when it has the best effect. I then, went out and bought it and have been hooked ever since. If I use it after every shower, I do not have any eczema flairs and the itching basically comes to a halt. This stuff is the real deal. In order for it to work though, it has to be used daily. It will soften my skin and reduce the inflammation from my eczema. It is especially helpful during the cold winter months. I use this stuff as a hand lotion as well and it takes the cracking and dryness right out and moisturizes so well. I love this stuff and always have two or three containers of this in my home. This product has no smell or anything added to it to irritate the skin. Overall, it is a wonderful and excellent product.

            I love this cream because it is non-comedogenic, which means I can use it to moisturize my face when my acne medication dries it out but I won't have to worry about the possibility of more acne. The Cetaphil cream is calming and just rich enough to give mymekin the moisture it needs without leaving greasiness behind.

              Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

              I was introduced to cerave by the Nurse Practitioner at my dermatologist's office. I came in with severe rashes on my skin after applying some sunscreen on. Later on, I found out that I was allergic to a preservative that is present in most lotions. Cerave does not contain that preservative. And so after trying it out and not breaking into rashes, I have since been using it. I use the cream basically as my lotion. It is thick, so you don't require a lot to apply to your skin. It is not greasy, it seems to be absorbed by the skin well, leaving it soft and well moistened. It has even helped smoothen up my skin.

              Scent
              It is unscented. If it does have a scent, it must be very mild.

              Absorption
              Cerave cream is absorbed by the skin quickly, leaving the skin soft and supple with no greasy feel.

              Effectiveness
              Very effective in smoothing, softening and moisturizing the skin. It even helped me get rid of some hard, rough patches on elbows where pressure is applied when I do my daily planking.

              Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

              I suffer from dry skin around my eyes and nose during the cold, winter months. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream was recommended to me by a friend who suffers similar problems during the winter. I purchased a small tub of CeraVe Moisturizing Cream at my local drugstore and started using it right away. I absolute love this cream. First, the texture of this cream is smooth and creamy. It feels so good on my skin. Many facial moisturizers feel thick and heavy. This is not the case at all with CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. A little bit of this cream goes a long way. I find that this cream absorbs very well into my skin. I need to rub the cream in a little bit but not a lot. This cream has done an incredible job healing and moisturizing my skin. CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is a bit on the expensive side but I have found that in-store sales are pretty common with this product. I have not seen manufacturer coupons for CeraVe Moisturizing Cream but the price usually fits within my budget if I am able to find it on sale. CeraVe makes quality products and this moisturizing cream is no exception! I highly recommend CeraVe Moisturizing Cream if you suffer from dry skin on your face.

              Scent
              The scent is fresh and pleasant.

              Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream:

              This lotion is the best I have personally used, it works like it says, smells fantastic, and is VERY affordable. I can easily give the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream a 10/10, and here is why. The first time I bought this cream, I was a little wary because tons of products offer the same thing, and most of them don't work, but this, this cream is amazing! I have never had an issue with it, and it worked just like it promised the first time I used it. I would easily recommend this to my friends and family, and am pleased to be writing this review. One of the best, I'd give it a try some time because the price is low, and I'm 99.9% sure you'll love it!

              Scent
              Like a mix of pineapple and green apple, I really enjoy the tropical but subtle smell of this!

              Absorption
              I never have anything left on my hands after using the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, you don't need a lot of it, and it does so much!

              Effectiveness
              The very first time I tried the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream it worked FANTASTIC! Just like it promised, was very unique by the texture, and overall moisturized my skin like I've never seen before.
