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.

Tried it on hyrams recommendation and it broke me out in my cheeks and under eyes. I've NEVER had under eye pimples in my life before this.

I've been using this moisturizer for the past 5 months, and it's worked wonderfully. I hate thick moisturizers and the feeling of them, but this one is so light and it dries super fast.
Ale from Winston-Salem
My skin is mostly dry except for my t zone (with blackheads included 🥴) and it really works for me even though it's sensitive. No problem at all in both zones. Calms me after a rough day at work. I'll definitely buy it again!!

I am surprised that most of the reviews I read weren't involving eczema, as this is the brand most derms have recommended to me for just that! (& it's even on the bottle that it is eczema friendly) Whenever I start to get an eczema patch (usually my face or neck) this stuff will clear it up completely within 3 days everytime. We are talking super red, scaly, itchy, peeling, burning eczema and within hours of the first application most of the redness is gone and my skin texture improves so much. The only lotion that has ever worked for my eczema!

This is a light weight non-greasy formula that hydrates skin all day.

I bought the travel size mini CREAM version of this and used it morning and night after my cerave cleanser and cerave serum. although for those 2 weeks I was trying out the cream version of this, I loved it. it is ver moisturizing and hydrating on my dry and dehydrated skin. so I decided since the cream version seems to be working well for me and since I dont have any new break outs, flare ups, no redness, irritation, or sensitivity, i wanted to give this lotion version a try and man is it something!! im telling you, I have actually only been using this lotion version for 3 days now but my skin feels great after using this in the morning. because its so lightweight and hydrating my skin will drink this right up. it goes on like a dream and it does take a tiny bit of effort to work it in because it is a lotion consistency however I don't mind it because 1 pump is more than enough and even gives me enough to take it down to my neck as well, all in one pump!! even though it says normal to dry skin, I feel like it would work great even for oily skin. I recently got my brother into cleansing and moisturizing his face morning and night as a way to build healthy habits and he said it didn't make his face feel any different (talking about irritation or sensitivity here) he said it felt nice on his face even though he is very oily and has acne prone skin. I also have acne prone skin but dry/dehydrated so a bit of a polar opposite of him. this may even work if you have Rosacea or the occasional eczema flare up but don't take my word for it. cerave makes something for both dry and oily skin types so if this makes your face react a certain way, you might have a different skin type or skin condition than you initially thought. but please do give this lotion a try because my skin is almost flawless due to switching my entire skin care to cerave and this lotion was the cherry on top of a very yummy cake!! highly recommended 100/10. if you want to know, I am 22 years old, living in iowa where the weather is constantly fluctuating DAILY and this lotion holds up very nicely and also does not make my make up look or feel weird at all!

I feel like this would work great as a body cream not a face cream. I've seen a lot of tik toks where they recommend it as a face cream, although it worked for many it didn't work for me and it only made me breakout even more and clogged my pores. I have combination/oily skin where my cheeks are dry/normal and my Tzone is super oily.
Kass from Idaho
The product is great, however I had issues with shipping and delivery. First off, it was scheduled to arrive on Wednesday but didn't arrive until Friday. When I got it and opened it up, the lotion was wrapped in plastic and the lotion was all over the packaging. I've been waiting awhile for this package so I decided to just clean it up and keep it. Not very happy though since I paid for the full thing and 1/4th of it was pumped out all over the packaging.

I was super nervous about putting this on my face because it says it's a lotion on the bottle and I break out very easily. I've been using this product for about a month now and it's the best drugstore moisturizer I've ever used. It makes my skin feel super hydrated and smooth and is honestly better than the $70 moisturizer I've been using for the past two years. I was rubbing it in too much in the beginning which caused the other skincare products I had applied to pill up, but once I realized that was the problem I haven't had any other issues. Would absolutely recommend!

I like the consistancy. Not too thick. Can be used for daytime or night. I love this brand.

This worked so well for me. I have being looking for something that worked good for me. I used to use cerave cream moisturizer but I get it was too heavy. I thought because my skin was oily that I needed gel moisturizers but it wasn't enough to keep my skin moisturizer. My skin was become tight a little after and I would start to peel on my chin and cheeks. This was not light but not heavy either. It was perfect for my combination skin. It leaves me a little oily but I rather be a little oily then be peeling. It hasn't broken me out either. My skin looks so moisturized

I started using the bliss clear genius line every day and while I loved that it was helping clear my skin.. it also dried me out worse than ever before. My skin got TERRIBLY dry to the point of pain so bad I had a hard time sleeping. I bought this stuff and let me tell ya, my dry skin was gone completely in two days. I also used coconut oil around my mouth and eyes because those we're the worst parts. I would super highly recommend using this if you are struggling with dry skin and/or acne.

I have tried other moisturizers but I always end up coming back to this one. I mainly only use this during the winter months when it is dry. Not too heavy, but not too light.
Meg from FL - Florida
Here are my thoughts on the CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. It is extremely hydrating and very lightweight, which is something I am always looking for. However, this product burned after application and gave me little bumps. It didn't work for me, however, I recommend it to someone with normal or combination skin,
Tea from Never
The price u pay for the amount you get it's incredible and the product itself works amazing so don't worry about all the negative comments about this product this may not work for everybody
S from Fort Worth, TX
Dried my skin a lot more than it already was and made acne worse

My dermatologist recommended this product due to my dry skin from chronic eczema. The lotion is very light and not greasy and contains no irritating additives. If you have sensitive skin like I do, I highly recommend you try this lotion.
Dakota from Charlotte, NC
I love using this as a body lotion. Fragrance free, light and not greasy, and a little goes a long way! I tried using it on my face as others have found success with... it broke me out and worsened my redness.
