Knowing this isn't specifically meant as a face moisturizer, I decided to purchase this as my new daily moisturizer based on reviews and people claiming it's a great product. I recently moved from a tropical country to San Francisco, and my face suffered from extreme dryness, especially under the chin area. I had to stop using my usual face moisturizer and look for something more hydrating, without breaking the bank. The consistency of this lotion to me feels like it is really just meant for the body and not the face. Upon applying, my it stings (take note.. I do NOT have sensitive skin) and I feel like it doesn't sink into my skin at all. I wake up the next day and my face is still dry, maybe even more so. To stop myself from giving it 1 star, I tried it on my body as it is meant to be. It works great for that purpose. I am currently using a back acne treatment and this has helped my back from drying out completely.

I went to dermatologist for acne..It was 2015 my first appointment, I'd have to leave my house, it was terrible. I couldn't even go out without any makeup. I really had to pack it on to cover it..but now totally changed my dermatologist gave me the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser to cure my Acne and then after a month I noticed its getting better then I started to buy the Cerave moisturizing lotion,the only one I will apply on my daily skin care routine. It won't clog pores, is never greasy and will not irritate sensitive skin,I never change any products cause this is the only one could help for my sensitive skin..I love it!

This product isn't marketed as a facial moisturizer, but it's one of the few products out there that don't irritate my sensitive face! I love using this as a base for all my other skin care products because it's so gentle. It works great as an every day moisturizer, but it's not marketed for super dry skin so don't think you can get away with using just this product. I have to layer other creams and facial oils on top, but I've always been a fan of layering skincare products.

I also use this product on my arms and legs and it's amazing! Especially in the cold winter months. It doesn't feel greasy on the skin at all.

I have extremely dry skin but also oily in some places on my face so I have combination skin. Lately due to the cold weather my skin is going crazy but when I tried this within the second day of using this I can already see signs of my dry flacky skin improving. I love this product. At first I thought 10 dollars was kinda of pricey for something that I wasn't sure was going to work but to me now knowing that it works great that's a reasonable price, and one pump of this goes a long way I can cover my face and neck with just one full pump.

I get rough bumpy skin in the winter and my dermatologist recommended this products years ago. I can say this product has worked like none I’ve ever tried. I love the non greasy feeling it leaves so I can put it on and crawl into bed. I use it for everything even my face sometimes. It works so well I have even gotten my boyfriend to use it.

I have overly sensitized skin now that the extreme cold has set in this winter. I’ve tried many brands including a very famous $300+ moisturizer and none leave my skin soothed like this one. I know it’s not marketed as an actual facial cream, it’s non comedogenic and leaves my skin smooth and soft. It sinks in fast for use under makeup. I sometimes add a few drops of essential oil for a night treatment. When my skin is breaking out due to hormones this helps them heal much faster. I love this and will always have on hand.

I am not a lover of thick moisturizers however this one is a light moisturizer it is good for sensitive skin and even though it is a light weight moisturizer it still does the j CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion ob perfectly so if you have sensitive skin or you don't like thick heavy moisturizers this is a great pick and also reasonably priced. Not to mention its winner time and we all should be moisturizing.

I honestly thought this was going to work a lot better than other lotions on the market.  It is great for sensitive skin but that is about it.  I would say do not waste your money on it unless you have sensitive skin.  There are many other drug store brand products that do the same thing.  I would check out St. Ives.  Works just as well, smells better, and lasts longer.

If you want silky smooth skin without a heavy, greasy residue, this lotion is meant for you! Cerave Moisturizing Lotion is super lightweight, yet nourishing at the same time. I love how I don't have to sacrifice nourishment for a weightless formula. I've seen a drastic difference in the quality of moisture my skin has. This is also great as tattoo aftercare as well!

Has any one used this while they are experiencing acne? If so did it make your acne worse? Also does this have any mineral oil in the ingredients, since I know that can contribute to acne

How often do you use this moisturizer? Does it build up on your skin over time (have a thick, greasy feeling)?

Does anyone use this for you face? Or do they use the one specifically made for your face? Does the face one make you greasy?

Is this good for oily, sensitive skin? I am searching for a new moisturizer that doesn't look greasy/shiny. Any suggestions?
