I am currently experiencing dermatitis around my mouth due to a medication reaction (I have psoriasis), which caused my lips and mouth area to swell, crack, peel and bleed. Nothing was helping and it was incredibly painful. My dermatologist advised me to stop using everything and only use CeraVe Healing Ointment until my appointment, two days later. I was simply amazed at the difference, just from one day to the next. I make my own, natural, healing ointments, which are very effective in treating minor cuts, burns, and rashes. But my skin needed something "neutral" to recover from the reaction. CHO was exactly what I needed. The pain is gone, swelling is reduced, the redness is dramatically reduced, the peeling skin is gone and the cracks are healing (my dermatologist even took pictures). I have a new medication now, but between applications, CHO is all I use on my mouth. I am immeasurably grateful for it.
I have no idea why Cerave decided to include denatured alcohol in this product. This is a very irritiating and drying ingredient that can exacerbate skin conditions. My son who has rosacea, my daughter who has keratosis pilaris and myself all use these products because we have dry, sensitive skin but this is one product we will not be able to use with the high potential for increased dryness and sensitivity.

Wanted to love, but can only ise by itself. I tried to later the products doing this then the cerave mositirizer. But when i did it would look as though my skin was peeling off. I love cerave products just not this one.

Shoutout to Emily Noel for this rec! As I'm getting older, my skin has changed drastically to extremely dry, cracked skin and this product has helped my skin so much. It's greasier than your average lotion so only buy if you're really dry lol

I have used this product for years but the smell of the last bottle was gross. It smelled like an oil field. I feel like quality has plummeted.

Great product I use it on my elbows and feet the only issue I have is I have this in the tube and it's very hard to squeeze out someone with arthritis won't be able to use it

This ointment works for me better than cortison creams. I use it on little patches of eczema on my scalp and ears: after 72 years I am cured!!
I use it on keratoses as well, and a very light coating around my eyes, makes the skin so comfortable. Also my lips—much better than other products: no burning. Appreciate no fragrance!
My husband is troubled with cracking thumb and finger tips in cold weather—he applies cera ve healing ointment every time he washes his hands, rubs in in really well—so far so good!
I'm so impressed with such a useful product that is reasonably priced!

Love this product. Great value and is amazing! A must have for winter! Easy to squeeze out of package and apply straight on lips or chaffed skin. Goes on light no greasy feel.

This product does wonders in taking care of my skin barrier. I use this nightly especially after any type of chemical treatment to protect my skin barrier

This is perfect to use anywhere you have dry skin. It is my go to when I've got cracking cuticles or abrasions. Love it as a lip mask too

I love this product, it helps me to recover very dry skin areas, that need more attention especially in winter. I like to use it as a lip balm, as an elbow balm, as a foot balm. I introduced this product to my boyfriend who has a dry skin and struggles with extremely dry wrists for 9 months per year, and it actually helps to heal his skin! The texture of this product is pretty thick, it has no smell, no artificial color. I appreciate the fact that it has hydrolysed hyaluronic acid and multiple types of ceramides!
Better than vaseline, that's for sure! I recommend this product to everyone, seriously, if you weren't sure to buy this or not, just do it, you will not regret. This is your sign you were looking for.

The best out of all jelly-based products I've tried. Aquaphor and vaseline break me out, but this never has. I mostly use as lip balm/eye cream but have also used on breakouts in their healing stages and haven't had issues. Good value

I love this product for slugging and for overall hydration especially on dry areas! It has a texture of Vaseline and no scent. It works really well for my skin and I'm sure a lot of skin types. My face after a night of slugging is hydrated!

Nice and thick soothing ointment. Very hydrating and love to apply it to my lips when they are extra chapped. If you have any super dry spots this would be a good product to apply to it.

This product is so hydrating and actually has a nice smell to it (although states it's not scented) I have very dry skin and applying this twice a day has really helped with my flaking

My big toe for some reason started to peel really badly and dry. I went to my derm and nothing was helped. I received this as a sample. The first use was awesome. By the end of the sample it was healed. I brought again and my toe remains healed.

This stuff is like old school Vaseline but better. I love that it has ceramides in it and it really does a good job at sealing in the moisture. I use it as the last step when moisturizing on my elbows, knees and lips after the showers. Always silky smooth the next day.

The only active ingredient is petroleum. Just get some Vaseline
Love g from Arizona
This ingredient is soooooo drying for the skin, and especially for your face!!! If you literally google "alcohol denate" it comes up and says very drying and can disturb your skin barrier…shocked it contains this ingredient and its in the top list…
Jess from Colorado
people need to stop calling this a serum, that's not what it is. this is the best occlusive ointment out there imo. it has more healthy skin ingredients than aquaphor and is a great option to seal in all the benefits of your moisturizer at the end of the day

I absolutely love CeraVe Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum. My skin looks better than ever. I use it allmost everyday after i shower an at bedtime.

I use this for slugging. It really helps to form a seal over your skin to help keep it moisturized.

I just started using this product. Great for locking in moisture and keeping skin from drying out during the day. It seems to work well for my acne prone skin too.

I'm so disappointed in this product. It's not a serum at all; it's a thick white cream, but I could get past that if it weren't so drying. My skin feels really tight and not in a good, firming way - just kind of irritated. I think I need to wash and start over with my really old Olay serum in my travel bag. I've always loved Cerave products and am weirdly sad about how bad this is.

I wanted to like this. I have other items from
this brand .But this time not so lucky .

A miracle for my red spotty rosacea skin. I like that this cream is lightweight yet it moisturizes. It is pretty much odorless. I see the results!
