Most Helpful Positive Review Highly Recommended Lotion!
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.
Most Helpful Critical Review LOVE the brand, HATE the breakouts.
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.

Lololou from OH
I used to really love this moisturizer. But for some reason my "hormonal" acne comes back if I use this!! Very concerning to me and I have had other problems with the CeraVe products. I had a severe reaction to their micellar water that left my eyelids completely swollen and scabbed. I have sensitive skin but I've never reacted that badly to a product before, ever. I don't feel like I can trust this brand any more.
I like but don't love it
slitt from South Florida
Definitely meant for the body, felt really heavy on my face didn't soak in very well on the face. When I sweat the hyaluronic acid sweats off leaving my body kinda slippery. I don't mind that feeling too much it's not sticky and helps with chaffing but it's definitely a little weird
Adding this to my permanent collection
Ruby from Southern Indiana
I purchased this product as an initial moisture barrier for when I get out of the bathtub. I then put a thicker moisturizer over top to help me with my keratosis Polaris. It's working very nicely I find my skin responds very well to the Hyaluronic acid .
Not great for PCOS skin
E.D. from Nashville, TN
Maybe it will work for others, but my cystic acne caused by PCOS does NOT like this product. I love Cerave usually, but this irritates my face a lot. On my body, not so much, but I prefer more hydrating lotions. I have finally switched to a different moisturizer and my face has calmed down so much; Im not sure if anyone else had similar reactions so Im putting my review out there just in case.

ONLY BEEN USING FOR TWO DAYS AND PLSS MY SKIN FEEL SO SOFT AND ITS GETTING HEALTHIER
JC from Tx
Caprylic triglycerides are
extremely high on the ingredients list, and this ingredient is highly comedogenic . Anyone with coconut allergies beware, this clogged my pores and caused small pustules on my face.
Otherwise, it is a great moisturizer if your skin can handle it. False advertisement and marketing is my main problem with this product.
Ulta lover from Utah
This product made my skin dry and flakey. I had to return it. :( Since I switched to my old face wash, my skin went back to normal. I was excited to try about this brand that someone has been talking about.
great for oily skin!
mak from tn
one of my favorite moisturizers! it's great for oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. it leaves my face feeling moisturized and hydrated, and not super greasy at all! highly recommend to anyone who has that type of skin! :)
em from California
I want to start off my by saying this is a good product. I have oily, sensitive, and acne prone skin. This hydrated enough in the morning after niacinamide and is light enough for me to wear spf and makeup over it. I also use this at time but sometimes want a little more moisture. However, this has never broken me out or made me extra dry or super greasy! It's a solid product, and I will be repurchasing
Tired of expensive products from Georgia
I randomly purchased this but I am so glad I did! I've had issues with blackheads and dry/oily skin for years now. I've tried tons of products which never worked. This along with the hydrating face wash has gotten rid of my black heads and my skin feels so soft and moisturized. I also use the hyaluronic acid serum at night. I highly recommend and am soooo happy.
Definitely lives up to the hype- a must have product
Emma from NC
I have combination skin and this is the perfect moisturizer for me- it moisturizes my skin without making me look more oily
em< 3 from paramount,california
one of the best mosturizers i've ever tried! it feels very light weight but it hydrates my skin so nicely!
Great on my skin but faulty pump
Lia from GA, USA
I found that this product works really well for my skin. I have sensitive combination skin and this doesn't break out my skin. It also absorbs really quickly into my skin.
The reason I'm docking a star is due to the fact that when this product arrived in the mail it was opened and the pump does not work.
Kay from New York
Leaves face well moisture
doesn't do enough
gab from phoenix
it doesn't not keep my skin moisturized at all. i was trying to use up the bottle but the lack of moisturizing power this has for my severely dry is disappointing considering all the good reviews.
Eh for face
Jnr from Arizona
I don't use this on my face, but I love this for my body especially my arms. I get eczema patches around my elbows and on the sides of my thighs, since this has no fragrance it doesn't irritate my skin and has helped even out my dry patches better than most products have.
My daily facial moisturizer
Sara from Milpitas, CA
This is a great lotion. I find it light enough that I actually use it every morning on my face and have done so for over a year. It absorbs pretty quickly (I apply it before I brush my teeth) and doesn't break out my sensitive skin. It lasts forever since I find I don't need to use that much to properly moisturize my face. I use the Cerave in the tub at night time as that cream is a bit thicker. It's an affordable product, I really recommend trying it out if you haven't yet!
Nikki from Clearwater, FL
It's a bit greasy while absorbing and my skin feels a bit sticky after, but otherwise it's fine. My skin doesn't feel dry and my nose, which normally gets super oily especially if I moisturize, isn't that bad, even by the end of the day. It's fragrance free so the smell is kinda meh, but it's awful.
AMAZING FOR ACNE-PRONE SKIN!!
Leena from Florida
It's helped me with acne and does not leave a oily residue. It also soaks into the skin in like 5 minutes!
Vicki C from Annapolis, MD
Have it out by my kitchen sick so after I wash dishes I use to soften my hands
Not For Sensitive Skin!
Tay from Fort Collins, CO
I only used this for around a couple weeks, until I realized this is what was breaking me out. I had bumps all over my face and neck! It took me about a month to get rid of them! I love Cerave's cleanser, but steer clear of this if you have sensitive skin, please! I ended up giving this to my parents, and they love it. I just do not recommend if u have sensitive skin!
Good for combo/oily
Kayla21 from MI
This moisturizer is very lightweight, yet very hydrating. I only need a little bit, not even one full pump. I have combo skin, including very dry upper cheeks and wet-oily forehead. This moisturizer keeps my dry spots moisturized and my oil minimized much more than any other moisturizer has. It's very smooth to apply and sets in FAST. Love it!
Audrey from Jackson,MI
This moisturizer did wonders for my skin, it made my skin feels so soft and I noticed a difference within a few days. I definitely recommend this to anybody who has sensitive and dry skin. I am normally a person to return a moisturizer because it burned my skin but this one I will definitely be re-purchasing.
Natalie from Irvine.CA
This is the only moisturizer that doesn't leave a heavy feeling on my face after using. It's super lightweight and this is my 2nd time purchising! I really love this product
Jen from Michigan
I absolutely love this moisturizer and will never go back to my old ones. This moisturizes my sensitive, dry skin without being heavy or greasy. My skin stays moisturized all day with no film left behind from the moisturizer. I highly recommend this product. It has been my go to for a few years now!
