For the first time in my life I got eczema this past winter and I went months without getting it treated, using just a basic moisturizing lotion that clearly wasn't working. I asked my friend who also had eczema in the past and she told me that her dermatologist recommended using CeraVe or Cetaphil. I went to ULTA and got this lotion immediately after talking to her, the 12 oz for $13.99. A bit more expensive for a lotion in my opinion, but after using it now I see why it was working better than my St. Ives $3.00 lotion. I was using CeraVe only for my eczema and it did make it a LOT better and did stop the itching, but didn't get rid of it completely, so I went to my dermatologist to get prescription medication. My dermatologist told me to use the prescription medication and then lather the CeraVe lotion on top of it as well. I did this and now my eczema is almost completely gone! Definitely a must if you have eczema (I had it on my right arm only) or dry skin patches in general.

I love this moisturizer. I used acutane about four years ago and recently I've been seeing some small break outs and returned to my dermatologist. She recommended I use CeraVe as a moisturizer (I don't remember what I was using before). This moisturizer leaves my skin super soft. It's a thick formula but absorbs into the skin well and doesn't feel heavy. Plus, it's kept my breakouts to a minimum. I use it day and night after washing my face. The only complaint I have is how expensive it is, but honestly, it lasts awhile. I think my tub lasted about three months before I had to purchase another one - so although it may be expensive, it definitely lasts much longer and the quality is much better than other moisturizers.

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 am extremely picky about what I put on my face and I love this lotion! My face is more dry than it is oily and this lotion does the trick! You can get it anywhere really and it’s cheap! It’s the perfect consistency, not too thick, not too thin. Goes on well, you only need a little pump and the bottle lasts me for a good 6 months. You can use it on the rest of your body but Because it’s not super thick, it doesn’t normally get rid of dry skin on my legs for example. That’s why I feel like it’s perfect for my face! My face can still breathe after I put it on, and even if I have dry patches during the winter I use some exfoliator, apply the lotion, and in the morning my skin isn’t as dry!

This is my holy grail moisturizer! Nothing else has worked so well for my extremely sensitive skin. Other moisturizers have given me break-outs, made me oilier, clogged pores, or irritated my skin...but this is gentle, hydrating, and sinks well into the skin. Great for layering with other products like sun screen and foundation because of its lightweight consistency. A little goes a long way, plus it's so accessible given it's a drugstore brand. Would absolutely recommend!

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!

I’m not sure what happened with this product. I’ve used both cerave cleansers and they are amazing but when I introduced this product my face and neck broke out in a rash and I also had big welts on the side of my neck. I believe I may be allergic to something in it or maybe I’m using it wrong. There may be a chance this it’s not to be used on the face. Wanted to love it so bad but had to return it immediately.

My dermatologist recommended this brand to me for my dry winter skin. I’ve tried most of them and have no complaints. You can layer your oils or serums then apply this on top or you can mix your oils or serums with this lotion and it works wonderfully. There are days when I just wear the lotion. No more dry wind-blown skin! My husband noticed how soft and young my skin looked that he’s using the same products for himself!  It not only softens your skin but it adds a layer of protection from harsh weather.  This will not clog pores or make you break out!  Just as good as expensive lotions!!!

Definitely a good moisturizer if you need something light! Wouldn’t recommend for dry skin, but this stuff works really well for my combination skin in the summer. It’s super lightweight and not greasy at all. I love the moisturizing cream from them even more (way thicker), but this is a good day time moisturizer for your face!!

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?
