How to Use
Rated 4.65 out of 5 stars
After years of purchasing very expensive high-end skincare, I woke up one morning, looked at my face and said to myself, "I don't look any better." So, at that moment, I scrapped my entire routine (hundreds of dollars worth of product), made a trip to Ulta and came across this moisturizer. First, it has ceramides and hyaluronic acid which are very prevalent in the more expensive skincare items. Second, it is fragrance free! My skin is your typical combination, non-behaving skin. It is oily is in the T-zone and dry everywhere else. The older I get, the more sensitive my skin has become. On top of all of that, I tend to get the occasional breakouts, especially when stressed. This lotion absorbs nicely, leaves my face feeling hydrated and comfortable without looking like an oil slick. It's a no fuss, does what it's supposed to do type of product. Forget the fancy glass jars, decorative tubes, and expensive items claiming to work miracles! This has become my new favorite moisturizer over night! I highly recommend for ALL skin types.
I've been in and out of the dermatologists to find ways to stop making me have such dry skin. I started using CeraVe because my mom suggested it to me. I used this lotion on my face and at first it did wonders for me. I've gotta say, it does the job if you have dry skin. However, my skin is very sensitive and the past couple months I've has breakouts on my chin. I believe that it's due to this lotion over-moisturizing my face. I wish I could keep using this product because it repaired my dry face. My suggestion, if you're looking for a new moisturizer, is to buy this and see if it works out for you. I think it just depends on everyone's skin type. I really really love this brand, this lotion just didn't help my skin in terms of acne.

This was pretty nice, but it left my skin very oily. I have combonation skin with hormonal breakouts, and I did not see much of a difference using it. Will update when I finish the bottle!

I love this moisturizer. I use Lancome, it cream and Clinique and this stuff beats it all. Of course, they all have different purposes, but I've seen the best results using this moisturizing lotion. I like to use a little on my face, neck and chest. I adore CERAVE. Wish I knew about this years ago! Definitely give it a try.

This is a good all around moisturizer, but if you're prone to fungal acne (small bumps all over your forehead or cheeks or body that don't come to a head, they're caused by yeast, v difficult to get rid of) this will cause breakouts! The moisturizing cream is safe for use on FA, but THIS IS NOT.
hun from london
this is a very nice moisturizer and makes your skin feel very smooth and hydrated would totally suggest and buy again

I have combination skin and this works wonders! It doesn't break me out or make my skin oily. I absolutely love it!!
Kat from MD
I started to use the cerave face wash and the lotion because it was glorified by skin care gurus. I later discovered that not all skin types react the same to these products and can in fact reverse the benefits of the products. My skin is oily and it caused small bumps on my forehead and encouraged breakouts, I never felt so unconfident. (Used for 3 months) Please be aware that even tho some products work the best to clear acne prone skin, for others, it might not be the best fit for your skin. Hope this review helps:)

I use this facial moisturizer every morning, night, and whenever I wash my face. I tend to have more dry skin that can feel very tight after washing it despite using any gentle cleanser - my skin needs a moisturizer to replenish it. Before this guy, I either had to do multiple applications of a lotion in order to feel satisfied with the product OR buy something so hydrating and found it was too thick as pore-clogging. I tried this and it provides the perfect amount of moisture while making me feel like I'm almost not wearing anything at all. Bonus - super gentle and restorstive for the skin.

I recently moved from Colorado (very dry) to Missouri (very humid) and I had to revamp my skincare routine to suit the humidity. I replaced my thick night cream with this stuff, and it has made all the difference! The fungal acne on my forehead completely cleared up, and my face does not feel sticky and gross in the mornings anymore. It feels so nice and lightweight on the skin, but doesn't leave me dry around my mouth and cheeks. This is seriously the perfect moisturizer. No scent which I love, and perfect for my combination skin.

This lotion is so good. It is so light and thin yet still so moisturizing. It is also good for your face and body. I love this and will re-purchase when I run out. This is very good and very affordable. I highly recommend giving it a try.

this moisturizer is great! it is thick but not too much and it's super moisturizing. it keeps be moisturized for more than 5+ hours. i have combination skin type and the moisturizer does not make me feel oily. i definitely recommend for oily/combination skin type.
Naomi from California
I've tried so many lotions in my life but none of them stayed hydrated until I found this. I started using this and I love it. It goes on easily, isn't greasy, and stays hydrated. I have baby skin now bc of this. 10000% recommend!!

I have really oily skin and always struggle to find a good moisturizer. I discovered this recently and let me just say that it is AMAZINGGG!! I was a bit scared to try this because my skin is so prone to big cystic pimples but so far this has moisturized without making me oily, i haven't had any new break outs and my skin looks like it's clearing up! This is definitely going to be my go to face moisturizer from now on.

lightweight, odorless, does its job!

I bought this after hearing and reading so many rave reviews. It did not work for me, unfortunately. My skin broke out pretty bad and stayed bad for a few months. My bad for continuing to use it after the first breakout.
Definitely check ingredients, yall! I stopped using this about a week ago because I got a different moisturizer and my skin has already improved so much!
Pros of this moisturizer: unscented, not too greasy, moisturizes well
Cons: some ingredients just aren't for everyone!

i use this after the foaming facial cleanser on damp skin. this moisturizer is honestly the only moisturizer that doesnt cause breakouts on my super super sensitive skin!

Stings around my nose, makes me feel a bit dry.. overall I like it on my body but not for my face. It kinda peels and doesn't settle right away

I have normal/oily skin with acne scars and of course acne. So I use a prescribed retinoid cream, and while that helps a lot but this was the other half my skin needed to not break out. I used this a couple years ago when I had first gotten my prescription and it was good but i hadn't realized how essential it was for me. then a year later when I was switching up my routine and using other moisturizers and cleansers, my skin became wack and there was a new break out every day and nothing helped not even spot treatments or how much I invested on skincare. i feel like those products were chalk full of ingredients that told me they were gonna do something amazing for me but to no avail. I decided to go back and get this and go back to the old routine that kept my skin clear for a good amount of time before I switched it up. Cerave hydrating cleanser, retinoid cream, and this. The next morning there were no new breakouts and the current ones looked smaller and tiny little bumps were smaller too. Might be the fact that this is so lightweight or those 3 ceramides in this, I don't know. But cerave you have a customer for life < 3

((I originally bought this at another store but I wanted to leave a review here because of how much I love it))
I have extremely sensitive, dry, and acne-prone skin. I was struggling for months trying to find a lotion that would keep my face moisturized for hours without irritating it and breaking me out, but then I came across this and decided to give a chance so I did and now I'm so glad I bought it!! Within less than a week my face is no longer dry (with the exception of two small dry spots on my face). Overall I would 100% recommend this to everyone who has sensitive, dry, and acne-prone skin.

This moisturizer is a sticky texture but it makes your skin soft but the reason its 4 stars is because it takes a while to rub it in. I am 14 and my acne and acne scars were so bad but now this moisturizer is helping it!

THIS PROBABLY THE BEST DRUGSTORE MOISTURIZER EVER!! It's really nice on my skin and leaves it moisturizer all day. It does contain parabens but science has shown that they can be used for good on skin and that they don't do much harm. So yes it's a safe and effective product to use!
