CeraVe

Skin Renewing Cream Serum

1.0 oz Item 2283861

CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum is designed to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while helping to repair and restore the skin barrier, resulting in brighter, smoother skin that looks healthy and radiant. It contains an encapsulated 1% retinol and ceramide complex, which stabilizes and delivers the retinol into the skin gradually over time so it won't cause harsh irritation like many retinols. The nongreasy and fast-absorbing formula, also contains vederine, a vitamin D analog known to provide epidermal and skin barrier support.
Apply liberally as often as needed, or as directed by a physician. Use sunscreen or other sun protection to prevent sun sensitivity while using this product. Discontinue use of CeraVe® Renewing SA Cream if there is any irritation or burning.

Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum:

I like and use other Cerave products but this one just doesn't work for me. I seem to break out from something in this the more I used it so sadly I had to return. Just seemed to irritate my skin.

    Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum:

    This is great but only as a night serum. During the day it pills under makeup no matter how I've tried to apply it. I use this after toning and applying a prescription acne medicine, I sort of press it into my skin and neck instead of rubbing. Then I moisturize and use eye cream before bed. Overall I'm pleased with this product, it doesn't irritate my skin even with the retinol (I've used retin A before and it was brutal) and doesn't break me out. I've noticed my skin has lost some acne marks and scarring and the surface is a lot smoother which is awesome. Doesn't do anything for pore size but I'm not sure it's supposed to either. I will continue to buy this and use it at night before moisturizing.

          I didn't expect much from a drug store brand but this product does everything it claims and does it quickly. I noticed results after just a few days with tighter skin, less fine lines, smaller pores and more even tone. I'm not easily impressed but I know I'll never stop using this serum.

              Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum:

              I use a prescription retinoid on my face, but the skin on my neck just can't seem to acclimate. So I use this serum on my neck, to maintain elasticity and keep the wrinkles away. I've tried some other products and I always come back to this. My dermatologist is a big fan of Cera Ve products, so I feel like this is a good choice. PSA...If you're using a retinoid, WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY DAY!!!

                Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum:

                This is my 3rd repurchase of this product. I apply 1 to 2 pumps to my face & neck until thoroughly absorbed (even around my eyes), right after cleansing. Then follow it with CeraVe Facial Moisturizing lotion & CeraVe Eye Repair cream. All 3 products apply & absorb so easily. No greasy feel. No fragrance. Great for my dry, "mature", and sometimes sensitive skin. I've noticed an improvement in the softness of my skin and decrease in fine lines. I use this at night & under my makeup every day. Compared to other "high end" products that contain retinal & ceramide, I think the price point is pretty reasonable. Love it!

                  Comments about CeraVe Skin Renewing Cream Serum:

                  I bought this product on a whim, looking for something that would help reduce the size of my giant pores. I found this because I remember using a light retinol formula when I was younger that worked well for my severely acne prone skin. As an adult, I wanted something similar that would minimize my pores, help tighten my pot-marked skin, and not break me out. This product does all of that!!! And I started noticing results immediately after the first use. This has worked so well for me and has done exactly what I had hoped it would do for my skin. Note: a little goes a long way.
