Rated 4.0 out of 5 stars
I've never loved a moisturizer more and I cannot stop recommending this product. It goes on light weight, but works so well. I have combination skin in the summer and dry in the winter, and this has been a great addition to the line up. It does not pill like some thicker moisturizers do.
The biggest con and something I've seen a few other people complain about, is the packaging. The bottle seems to empty way faster than it should. But this is just the pump not being able to grab any more product. I opened mine up because i just thought "there's no way it only lasts this long." And what did I find? SO MUCH PRODUCT LEFT. Easily enough for a few more weeks depending on how frequently you use it.
Definitely open yours up when you think its empty. It makes the price way more reasonable for the amount of product you really get.
First of, let me start off by saying that this moisturizer is fabulous. It's lightweight, yet moisturizing. It's refreshing and clean. This is perfect to wear for oily complexion or under makeup/ before primer. Anything heavier makes my makeup crease or makes my skin feel caked.
My only issue is with the packaging. The pump would be great if it worked, or even if i could open it to retrieve product. Neither is available. I understand the need to keep the product sanitized, but id rather have my product accessible and leaving me responsible for the sanitation of the product. Second, i need more sizes. This small bottle is not going to last for me.
Here's to a great formula and new packaging in the future.

I am a very oily person so typically, thicker moisturizers cause me to look very shiny mid day. This porduct keeps my skin hydrated without me looking so oily throughout the day. Its only been a few days of using but i can already see a difference!!

Light weight easy to apply on

It takes multiple pumps of an already small bottle just to get enough to moisturize my face, but it dries so quickly and leaves my skin feeling uncomfortably tight and dry. Kind of like a chapstick that dries out your lips so you have to use more. The elf holy hydration gel moisturizer is half the price and works so much better.

I have extremely sensitive skin and while I can get oily, I do need some hydration. This is perfect for moisturizing the skin without being too heavy. My new go-to moisturizer!
JR from Idaho
It is so lightweight and silky soft. Dries down fast and lasts. It's the only moisturizer my boyfriend will use!

I was really excited to try this. I love Cerave products, so when I saw this, I knew I needed to give it a try. I'm so sad to say this but this product was awful. I have sensitive skin, and this made my face burn to the point of needing to REWASH my face, just to get it off. It then took another few hours for my skin to fully calm down. I won't be buying this again.

I love most things CeraVe, and this is included! I love the feel of putting the gel on your face, it's slightly cooling and just feels amazing. It definitely moisturizers me, but some days if I am feeling extra dry I would use the PM lotion instead. But this one is still great for most days!

I have very oily skin and i have been using this for about 2 weeks. Love it, so light, feels so smooth on my skin. Love the hyloronic acid and niacinamide also!

I am a cetaphil/cerave gal. I have chronic eczema, hypersensitive, acne-prone skin. I figured this would be great but it felt sooooo gross on my skin. It never fully absorbed and left a very silicone/oil slickness across my face the whole day. Felt like my skin couldnt breathe.
Id skip this and use the cetaphil oil-free moisturizer instead.

This will officially be the last Cerave product I will try. All of their products have broken me out. A lesson I learned the hard way, just because it says noncomedogenic doesn't mean it can still irritate your skin.

Absolutely love this gor oily acne prone skin. Keeps my skin hydrated without feeling too heavy or sticky
Kara from Chicago
I have combination skin and this is my new favorite moisturizer. It's new I think, can't wait to see if they come out with more sizes

This product really surprised me, it's a wonderful gel cream. Truly moisturizes yet is so lightweight! Excited to continue using.
Carly from South Carolina
The only con I can think to mention is simply that I wish the bottle was bigger! I have super dry acne prone skin and this doesn't irritate my skin or break me out at all but leaves me with soft, supple skin. It dries down but doesn't feel like a film, it just feels like a healthier, more moisturized version of my skin! I adore this and truly think this will be my new holy grail every day moisturizer. I'm positive this is good for all skin types!
Klin from Florida
I have oily skin and I live in a hot humid climate in South Florida. This is the perfect moisturizer to layer under make up. It's so light weight, dries quickly and keeps my skin looking healthy but not oily. Really love this and will continue to repurchase.
Sam from Pennsylvania
I feel this moisturizer is light weight and I don't smell anything which is a huge plus! It absorbed within seconds on my skin without a tacky or sticky feeling. I use this with Cerave SA Renewing cleanser twice a day and in the mornings I put Hero Cosmetics Mineral Sunscreen on top with no issues of pilling or peeling. For reference I don't use any other serums or mists, just a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. I have combination skin that is prone to breakouts and I love this moisturizer. I was using the daily moisturizering lotion but it felt heavy on my skin. I kept using it because it didn't irritate my skin or pill. But this has definitely replaced that! I don't think this would be suitable for dry skin personally.
