Most Helpful Positive Review Miracle in a jar
So glad ulta is carrying this now! This has ceramides and niacinamide, which strengthen your skin's barrier to handle the gentle exfoliation it provides from salicylic acid, So, it has stopped my clogged pores on my face, cleared up the keratosis pilaris (bumps!) on my upper arms, smoothed my rough heels, gotten rid of my dry cuticles, and improved my wrinkles dramatically, but GENTLY. I use it as my face and body cream everyday-even on my lips to make them smoother. The best part is that while its hydrating, it is not shiny or greasy and works great under makeup. Don't know what I will do if this is ever discontinued!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great, but it broke me out
I had really high hopes for this moisturizer, especially with the brand being so highly recommended by dermatologist. Personally, I like heavier creams as I like my skin to feel plump after an hour and not dry and right like some moisturizers can make your skin feel (I always notice this more with gel moisturizers). This was perfect. I could use the tiniest bit and it would slide on super smoothly and make me feel supple. It even had a kind of mattifying effect upon initial application which surprised me. Overnight it can leave your skin a bit oily, so it's definitely a moisturizer you go to bed with and wash off before applying a daytime moisturizer. Sadly, despite my liking of the product, it broke me out. I have combination skin and suffer from hormonal acne. I NEVER get any acne on my forehead, only my chin. This product caused a cluster of red bumps on my forehead. It came the night I first used this and got better after I stopped using it, so this is likely the culprit. The only thing I can think of is that it's not meant for the face. It doesn't explicitly say whether it's meant for face/body, but it does say to apply anywhere, so I figured it would be a multipurpose moisturizer. I am very sad to say that I will be returning. If you want to try this product, I would recommend testing it out on a small patch to see if it irritates your skin first. Otherwise, it's a great product!
Reviewed by 153 customers Ok. Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy is better
Honeybzzy from Chi
I gave this a try because of other reviews, but I'm not as pleased with results as I'd expected. It hasn't done much with the KP on my legs. I've been told my skin feels soft and silky with Gold Bond Rough & Bumpy, not so with CeraVe. It also has a slight odor. However, with its many ceramides, it is very moisturizing for dry skin -I'll give it that.
Helped my Keratosis Pilaris
Jackie from Houston, TX
I bought this cream because I heard it helped people with Keratosis Pilaris (KP or strawberry skin). I've had it for a few weeks and it seems to have lessened my KP! It's thick so a little goes a long way. It will probably take me awhile before I go through my 12 oz tub. When I first got it I used it twice a day, morning and night, but my skin seemed to be irritated and a little bit itchy. I've since switched to using it once a day or every other day and it's achieved great results without irritation. It seems to work best when you apply it after showering. This summer may be the first where I'm not tempted to cover my arms!
So happy it is back in stock, buy before they sell out!
Jennie from Texas
Make sure you apply day & night after showering to see results.
I keep it in my house
Rae from Tullahoma, TN
The best product for Keratosis Pilaris. Doesn't completely take it away but helps so much.
Florida buckeye from Florida
Nothing is fundamentally wrong with this moisturizer, however I had high expectations for it, after reading the product description, ingredients and the reviews. It's just like any other thick moisturizer I have used. I
I've been using it 2x a day for 2 weeks. Really nothing special. In fact, sometimes I put another scented moisturizer or essential oil over it so at least I smell nice.
Dont expect any miracles from it. It's just your basic moisturizer.
Nourishing and will def buy again
Alice C. from American Canyon, CA
This was recommended to my daughter for the bumpy skin on her arms. This has made such a big difference and she loves it. Highly recommend it to others to help with bumpy dry skin!
I use it daily.

Best for dry skin
Sarah from Phoenix
This formula is incredible! I have had chicken/strawberry skin my whole life and within two days there is already a serious difference. I can't wait to keep using it!! Also an unexpected benefit: it helps brighten up tattoos by removing dull dead skin covering them up. I love it
Cured my Keratosis Pilaris/Strawberry Skin!
Anonymous :) from New Jersey
So I'm a senior who's suffered from strawberry skin since 3rd/4th grade. I was always ashamed of my legs and only wore pants or leggings to hide my bumps. I went to the dermatologist as she recommended me something that didn't work. I tried over 10 different lotions and nothing was working. I have extremely sensitive skin so I already had a hard time finding a good lotion. My mom came across this one and we decided to try it. After just a week, I saw big changes. I've been using this lotion for a year and my skin looks amazing and soft. I'm not worried about wearing skirts and shorts anymore! I will never stop using this product!!!
good for feet
jj from my house
love this stuff, makes my feet so soft for summertime!
Best lotion for all day moisturizer.
Fitnessmom9 from Swanton Vermont
I have gone through about 4 to 5 of these tubs, best moisturizing lotion ever. It's the only one that I can feel the next morning coming off in the shower, but not in the way that you can feel it on your skin. It dries down within 10 minutes so you can no longer feel it but does continue to work until you wash it off. The last bottle that I got did have tiny little plastic bits in it, but they are extremely tiny and I will deal with that for how good this lotion is, but I do hope they fix that production issue. This has done wonders for my skin, this is the first year I've consistently used it every day and as I've always loved it, truly being consistent with it is key. My skin has never in my life been softer, and it rivals my children's baby soft skin now.
omg this is a miracle product
Jordan from Boston
I was NOT paid nor was I given a free product to write this review ---- I am just SOO HAPPY something has finally worked for my stubborn, sensitive skin. I sent this same one directly to Cerave!
I cannot get over how amazing the SA line is — I have been on an exhausting and expensive trial & error skin journey for nearly 10 years to control my KP ("chicken skin"/"strawberry legs"). I've used every product there is under the sun only to ever see minor/temporary improvement. I have been embarrassed nearly my entire adult life because of KP, so much that I've made the continuous conscious effort to avoid showing my legs in public. Wearing shorts and skirts gave me anxiety and was a total nightmare. But that changes now with Ceraves SA line!! :D
The most noticeable part is I actually feel moisturized beyond just the very surface of my skin. This cream makes my skin feel so plump and nourished while diminishing the horrible speckles & bumps of KP. Its fragrance-free, and a bit on the thicker side (a personal preference) so a little goes a long way! The little colored "dots" started fading after 48 hours (2 days of use)!
If you decide to try it, make sure you wear sunscreen if your problem areas are going to be exposed to the sun since it does have resurfacing ingredients in it. I'm happy to report I do not experience any burning sensation when applying this to my skin.
I would recommend this to EVERYBODY. I could not say enough good after being miserable for so long and basically giving up I'd ever find relief. Get this, you won't regret it!!
Greatly reduced my KP
Savannah R. from Kansas
I've only been treating my keratosis pilaris (the bumps on the backs of my arms) in recent years, but so far this is the best lotion I've tried for the price point that really helps smooth my arms. I use it morning and night and noticed a difference after just a few days.
Know what your skin needs before buying
Ameyaa from Santa Clara
If you love to go product happy and buy millions of bottles and then complain about not getting results, stay away from this.
Use this is if you have KP, or acne on your body/ scars.
You will see results, but stay loyal to this.
Must have item for everyday routine!
Big fan of CeraVe from MIchigan
I use this all over once I get out of the shower in the morning, and even at night before bed too! I had a random outbreak of body acne and in less than a week, this cream has made my skin smoother, clearer and is lightening the previous acne marks! Even once my skin is completely clear I will continue to use. It leaves my skin so soft and hydrated. I will buy this over and over again! The formula is thick, but spreads very well so you don't need to use a ton.
PLASTIC IN MY LOTION
maya from South Carolina
I enjoy the ingredients HOWEVER there was plastic pieces in my lotion
KP life saver
Maleria from Illinois
Ever since I was little I had little red bumps on my arms and body acne almost everywhere. It's been my biggest insecurity for ever. After using it every-time after I shower this thing literally saved my life. idk why I ever hesitated buying it. It's doesn't particularly work for my face but I love it on my body.
sasha from owensboro, ky
I love using this stuff on my legs after I shave. I'm prone to razor bumps and irritation no matter what I use and this stuff has done wonders. it leaves my skin smooth and bump/irritation free.
CeraVe SA Cream
Lisa from Texas
EXCELLANT, my legs were itching so bad, I think I may Exemez !
Works great for itching as well as helping for the bumpy and rough skin.
Would definitely, urge you to try it
—— from Michigan
It makes me break out everywhere. I use the smallest bit on my arms and my arms are covered in breakouts the next day. Would not recommend for those with sensitive skin.
Great for Kp
Dani from Denver, CO
Let me start by saying that I've had keratosis pilaris (KP) all my life and basically thought it was normal until I recently starting doing more research on what these small bumps were all over my arms and legs. With this cream my bumps are not completely gone but they have lightened and gives so much hydration to my skin. This cream is my everyday body moisturizer, I did start using the SA lotion but found this cream is better for me although it should work the same. I just prefer the cream for more hydration.
emily from minneapolis
i was wary of $24 for a cream but this works wonders! after a few uses embarrassing bumps i had on my legs for my whole life were gone—my skin is soft and smooth & stays that way. it's a little thick but if you use it carefully it's SO SO worth it
KC86 from Omaha
This moisturizer has saved my textured skin that happens on my face occasionally. It also helps my skin after shaving my legs. When I first used this I saw results within a couple of days.
Great if you have those under the skin bumps
Syd from WI
This is a great moisturizer for under the skin bumps! I have EXTREMELY sensitive skin and I also have eczema. I used this on my face and I didn't break out at all, it actually helped my acne. My boyfriend hates lotion and moisturizer because of the film/greasiness/oils. He will actually use CeraVe because it doesn't leave a film. You won't regret any of their products!
Helped with my psoriasis
bernie from delaware
this is the best thing i've come across for my psoriasis.. it doesn't completely get rid of it but it has helped calm it down immensely in just the 2 months i've started to use it
