I have always been a fan of classic beauty products. You know what I'm talking about- the green and pink tube of mascara, bright red Revlon nail polish and lip product. CLASSICS.

Back in high school, I can remember babysitting for a lot of the local families. Of course, when you babysit, you have a tendency to peer (i.e. SNOOP) in the bathrooms of the families you work for. :) In almost every case, I saw Cetaphil cream and cleanser on the shelf. Why is this such a classic? Because it's darn good!

I received a sample of Cetaphil in a PinchMe box (for free- but all opinions are my own). I was astounded at how my body just absorbed the cream and felt silky smooth. It's also an actual unscented, unscented product. Many "unscented" products actually have a strong chemical smell (because it is missing the fragrance that normally covers the chemical scent). Thankfully, this one is good to go. Would highly recommend this one!

I purchased this recently, not here but at WMart, a little less expensive than here. But what amazes me is that for years, I have spent lots and lots of money on expensive facial moisturizers. And was going through a period of trying out new ones since I was having a continuing problem with flaking on one side of my face and around my eye. I tired Anew, for eyes, and liked it, but it didn't correct the flaking. I tired Oil of Olay, I have tried some stuff I bought on a cruise that cost me about $110. a jar. And then I decided I needed a moisturizer for my legs, and when I saw this was good for your face also, I tried it on my problem area, well no one was more shocked than me that the next day the flaking was gone. WT heck, this is for sensitive skin and non-comedogenic, and cost $11, a jar. Never again will I bother with anything else.

I had eczema all over my face, hair and chest area, even my arms and it use to itch like crazy. I looked for so many products until my mom came home one day with this same product except it was blue. I was so skeptical of this product because I have went through so much but she encouraged me to use it and from a week by I realized all the dead skin, itchiness and redness was going away I was so happy and from then I never let go of this product. Cetaphil is really a life changer for people that have this skin problem. I even found a special hair oil for my hair and that worked flawlessly. Now I'm 18 and I don't have eczema anymore. I only havee dryness on the botton of my eyebrows and my nose i still use this product. I have the green one now. Recommended for all that have eczema. Love this product!

All the other reviews say they love it. But I got this last year in a voxbox and at first I loved it. The first few times I used it I could say positive things about. But after a while my hands just got greasy everytime I applied it. It made my hands looks REALLY greasy, and my hands would sticky for hours after applying. Yes, it does moisturize, but I don't think I will purchase. Just for the fact of I had having my skin sticky, it's not a great feeling. I also don't like the look of my skin when I use it. I want a nice shine, but not a dirty greasy shine. It also doesn't absorb as fast as some moisturizers I have used in the past. It like stays in top of my skin for a while then finally absorbs. I want a moisturizer that absorbs fast and doesn't transfer to my clothes and phone screen.

I have used this and even sampled the product. I do like it as its very moisturizing and also works very well as a daily moisturizer. I use this for my face and body. However, I would like to say that this is a lightweight moisturizer and will not provide long term hydration on the skin. This would work great as a hand cream also. This is good to relieve dryness or any patchy skin instantly but you will need a heavy duty moisturizer for longer hydration. I use this all the time, during all the seasons as it doesn't make my skin oily in any way. This is a good product that any family member can use; men, women and children can use this product as it is suitable for sensitive skin and is also fragrance free. I recommend this product and its a must have for every household.

I have acne prone and sensitive skin. After visiting the dermatologist, she prescribed me some creams that would help with y acne, but dry out my skin. After researching online, many people have recommended to use this on top to bring back moisture into their skin.
I got a big tub of this at wal-mart for $11.44 and saw a value pack at costco on sale for $10 after. This moisturizer is extremely hydrating and i definitely saw a difference in the texture of my skin in a few days when applying my makeup. I've always had my foundation cling onto dry patches, but now it applies on smoothly. However, my skin is now more on the oily side, and I blot my skin a lot more than before.
Overall though, I love this moisturizer! Its ggreat for the face and body and is super affordable.

I have fairly dry skin so a good moisturizer is a must. I was using the Clinque Dramtically Different Moisturizing Lotion for a few months but when I got an extremely dry patch of skin around my chin it was just not cutting it, so I went on a search for a heavy duty, extremely moisturzing product.

I did some research and found the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. You can find this cream at any drugstore , When I say I had a dry patch, I mean really dry. It was very red and flakey and irritated and nothing was helping for more than 5-10 minutes. After I got this product, the dry patch was gone completely within 4 days! You never would have guessed something was wrong with my skin only a few days before. I was amazed and incredibly happy. I finally found my miracle product.

I went to get this at the pharmacy because the dermatologist told me to get it. I have eczema in my hands and they always get very bad specially in this cold weather and i would say this cream does help.
Initially when i put it in my hands it gives a bad sensation but thats because my hands are all messed up but than thats my fault. The more you apply this moisture cream you would see it does well to the skin. Plus i like the consistency... its buttery, smooth on the skin and smells well... would recommend specially to anyone with my condition. And i would buy again..... i did think the price was $$ alot, but hey! It was kind of worth it... plus my dermatologist gave me a coupon for it, make sure you ask yours for one too!

I definitely don't have dry skin, but I use this when I need more moisture than usual. If my skin is feeling dry because I've gotten too much sun or I need to spot moisturize with something a little heavier, I use this. The area around my nose gets pretty dry sometimes, so if my regular moisturizer isn't cutting it, I'll put this around those dry areas. It helps my nose dryness immensely. If I do a clay mask and feel like my skin has been dried out, I use this instead of my regular moisturizer. It soothes skin and feels very good around dry areas. If you have oily skin, I would pass because when I use it when my skin isn't dry, I wake up feeling like an oil slick.

Cetaphil is the only product my son can use.He has had dermatitis his whole life,he is 21 now and he still uses Cetaphil Wash and moisturizing cream.I just recently started using Cetaphil Dry Sensative Skin Moisturizing Cream on myself and my youngest son as we live in Alaska and the winters are very drying.It has been a god send.it leaves our skin soft not greesy and it doest feel to heavy.I put it on my son before I dry him off after his bath and it helps to lock in moisture (a little trick I learned from our Pedi) Great product,I highly recommend it to anyone.

Does anyone else find this moisturizer to be very good for their skin as well?... I really love how it's not heavy on my skin and I don't have to deal with the dryness on my face anymore, I totally dislike heavy moisturizer that make you sweat even more.
