Most Helpful Positive Review This literally saved my skin
About three months ago I started to suffer from adult cystic acne for the first time ever. I have spend thousands (not kidding) on treatments, facial peels, acne systems, etc. everything I tried left me with the driest skin ever. The dry skin was only making my problems worse and it was leaving me self conscious.
I bought three different $200 Hydrating serums and they all let me down. I spent many nights researching and reading reviews to try and solve my problem. I came across this and I am SO glad I did. I'm not kidding, this has transformed my skin. I no longer need to reapply my foundation 10 times over again due to my dry skin. I no longer look in the mirror at work and feel embarrassed because I have dry flakey patches. This is the first time in three months I've been able to look in the mirror and smile at what I see.
I never write reviews, but if it weren't for reading all of the amazing reviews on this product, I would have never purchased it and would still be losing the fight against the worst skin in my life. Between this moisturizer and Dim plus supplements (ladies, read up on this supplement for hormonal acne) I am finally starting to feel like myself again.
Most Helpful Critical Review Not Good For Roscea
This product has Eucalyptus in it. It burned when I applied it. In my opinion this would not be a good product for people with rosacea. The eucalyptus has an irritating/burning quality.

it was my holy grail for a ling time, but so sad it's no longer cruelty free :(
Magic for dry skin!
xcv from Colorado
Working with a mask on for 8+ hours a day wreaked havoc on my skin, it became SO dry and itchy. The moisturizer I was using did absolutely nothing to help the issue. I tried this and it immediately soothed my skin - my skin felt plump and hydrated again. I put this on my face, neck and chest generously every morning and night and I'm just now getting to the bottom, 2 months after purchasing. Great price point - especially compared to your average 1.7oz moisturizer, you're getting more than 3x the product with this. Highly recommend.
No longer cruelty free
Emily from Tennessee
So disappointed in this brand. Making more animals be torture so they can increase profits. Not cool.
burned so bad!
maddie from lolo montana
i enjoyed this product to start and was excited to try it... i apply this moisturizer after i cleanse and all of the sudden and made my face burn incredibly. i stopped using it and my skin has improved and other moisturizers have not made my skin burn. also, i have dry skin, and a few hours after application, my skin would feel extremely oily.
Em from Boston, MA
This is the holy grail of moisturizers! I have very dry skin on my face, and even after using some moisturizers I can be left with small flakes of dry skin that are super visible when I apply makeup. I have been hunting for a moisturizer that isn't too oily or heavy looking on my face, especially since I often go makeup-free in the summer (and since quarantine pretty much haven't worn makeup since March). This moisturizer is IT! Light and fresh on the skin, only need a small amount to cover your face too so longevity is a plus. This moisturizer is more creamy and less oily, so it leaves a smooth, soft finish on your face. Worked MUCH better than the Drunk Elephant Protini moisturizer that I tried. Will forever be buying this product and turned my sister onto it as well!
The search is over
Katie from OK from Tulsa, OK
I have been using this product for almost 2 years and finally am getting around to reviewing this-- I have suffered from acne/combination skin my whole life (I'm 26) and this moisturizer was an absolute game changer - two years ago I tried this out and my skin has been so much clearer, brighter & healthier looking since- I'm convinced that the right moisturizer matters even more than the right cleanser (but obviously find a cleanser that works for you too!). It's absolutely worth the price & honestly lasts a while - I'm guessing 3-4 months usually (and that's with using it twice a day on my face and neck).
Just One Problem!!

Just get rid of the Eucalyptus Fragrance and it would be amazing for sensitive skin.
Formula changed ?? gave me such BAD breakouts
Melissa from Miami, FL
Little background info: I have always had sensitive acne prone skin and have struggled with breakouts for a couple of years. My dermatologist gave me some products to use that helped but they did make my skin very dry, therefore I was looking for a more hydrating moisturizer. I had heard many great things about this product and bought the travel size, which worked amazingly. So i proceeded to order the full size online and IT WRECKED HAVOC ON MY SKIN. Upon application , I did notice that it had a different scent but didnt pay attention to it. However, my skin went from having 2-3 active blemishes to a bunch of bumps on my forehead and big cystic spot on my cheek in a span of about 2 weeks . I haven't changed anything in my diet or anything that could impact my skin. My skin had made such great progress and this really messed it up :/ So be careful!!!
Perfect moisturizing cream
Mick from Chicago
Love this cream. Since I have been using it my hands feel like silk and my nails are even growing! I have been using it for about 2 years. It is wonderful!
This stuff is the best!!
Julia from Tennessee
I absolutely love this stuff! I like the ones that have scents too but I keep coming back to the original. I went from using Aveeno to using this and I will never go back. My skin is so soft!
Dry hands Heather from Maryland
This is, bar none, the best product I've found to help the dishydrotic eczema on my hands. They have gotten to the point where they bleed due to cracking and dryness (even with using non SLS soaps) and most hand creams don't do anything. This cream is packed with just about every amazing moisturizing ingredient there is and it really does help. I usually will put it on at night and by morning my hands are soft and not flaking anymore. The price is a drawback but just using it on my hands year round I can usually get away with buying one of the large tubs per year with a couple smaller ones to supplement.
Ash from California
I am 27 years old and still suffer with pretty bad hormonal acne. I also have EXTREMELY sensitive skin. I have been changing my diet drinking a lot more water and recently changed my moisturizer to this one! I seriously believe it helped smooth out my face & clear up a lot of troublesome acne! Besides it being HUGE and super affordable it wears with makeup so well which when I first bought it thought was too thick. NOPE! It is perfect and I am so happy that I bought it! A must have for sensitive skin!
I would give this product no stars if possible
Amy from Denver, CO
I started using this product after a chemical peel. Initially my skin seemed okay with it. Two weeks later I inexplicably developed cystic acne on my jawline and around my mouth. Even after making dietary changes, my skin is very angry. These are not small pimples. These are painful cysts that probably aren't going to resolve anytime soon. I really wanted to like this product, but it's a no from me. I recommend this product for non acne sufferers.
Helps Relieve Irritation
Liza from Oklahoma
The feel reminds me of the classic Noxzema cream, but without any scent. My skin is sensitive and this helps relieve irritation.
Not for sensitive skin

Don't recommend for sensitive skin
It was eh...
Embo from Los Ángeles
I have been wanting to try this product for some time now because apparently it's all the rave but I'm soooo sad with my experience :( I have super dry and sensitive skin so I need something thick to even make a difference on my skin. I used this product for two nights - first night it felt a bit tingly and my skin soaked it up in 2 minutes. I applied a second layer and my skin did the same. The second night I felt tingly but even worse... I'm not sure if it's the eucalyptus oil or what but it just didn't sit right! I even got small hives by my lip area. I ended up returning it the next day. I really really wanted to love this product, but I couldn't justify the price / product when the Cerave Moisturizing Cream is less then half the price for a more nourishing feeling & better for my sensitive skin. But just because it didn't work for me, doesn't mean it won't for you!
I NEED this EVERY night!
Jillian from Boston, Ma
I use this every night, especially if my face gets irritated. I have really bad allergies and often get reactions on my face and lips randomly, so I use this every night, even when my face isn't over-sensitized. I even put it over lighter moisturizer just to seal the rest of my skin care in.
Made my dry skin worse!
Jcabero from San Jose, CA
I wanted to love this product so badly after hearing so much hype about it. Initially, I thought it was ok (had the same texture as a cerave moisturizer I tried) but it didn't make a difference in my skin. I have normal/dry skin and this product has given me the worst dry patches around my nose. Would not recommend this at all!
Great for psoriasis and eczema
Robyn from Colorado
I have inverse psoriasis which means I get really dry and red patches of skin on my scalp, face, and neck. I've been using this cream for almost 2 years now and absolutely love it. I saw an almost instant diminishing of the patches on my face. If only they made a shampoo out of the same stuff! I love this cream because it's not as harmful like the steroid cream my dermatologist prescribed and I can use it as often as I like. I've even used it after shaving and it has prevented razor burn. I really just use it for any skin irritation I have anywhere and it helps clear up issues and keep my skin soft and moisturized.
My only con is that it is a big thick. I've used it in warm humid climates while on vacation and it sometimes doesn't absorb all of the way. You can run your finger across your forehead and it will be white. In the Denver climate it is great!
Nikki from New York
I don't know what's in this formula, I have a feeling it's the high amount of static acid, but whenever I put it on it stings. It's doesn't hurt but it's a more aggressive stinging sensation, remnicient of the same effect some drug store Cerave moisturizers have on your skin at first.
While I can overlook it because it's Oh so Moisturizing, especially if you have normal to dry/dehydrated skin I hated the sensation of putting it on and I feel it made my skin more sensative overall and it took me over a month to get my skin back to a less sensitive state.
doesitdee from Texas
I saw so many people rant and rave about this product. I was really excited to try it. I used it for about 2 months, morning and night. I didn't really see much of a difference in my skin. I have combination skin. I much prefer my CeraVe Moisturizing Cream in Rich texture. So much better, comparable quality, and half as much as this. I also feel like it's way more moisturizing.
Bri from Boston
I purchased the travel size one because I was doing this face mask that made my skin really dry so I only was using it once a week. But my boyfriends hands were so dry and nothing helped, his doctor even prescribed him hand medication and that didn't work but I gave him this and it saved him! We both purchased the huge bottle! I also recommended it to my mom, since her hands have been so dry from washing them constantly & she a has a billions of lotions but this saved her as well! Now I use this on my face and hands every single night. I love it.
I continue to buy this product.

Dry Aging skin. No scent so doesn't conflict with my perfume.
not fragrance free, not moisturizing enough
kar from va
this moisturizer is a nice, lightweight cream. the moisturization does not last after a few hours on my skin tho as i have a dry skin type. love that it has the colloidal oatmeal as it soothes the skin, but it DOES have a fragrance. in the ingredient list it has eucalyptus oil, which gives a slight minty smell that i don't personally enjoy. i enjoy thicker, more exclusive creams, so this just wasn't enough for me.
That only Cream that makes my skin smooth
