I have acne-prone combination sensitive skin. I stumbled upon this while browsing shelves to replace my old spf 30 moisturizer--which another brand discontinued. Decided to give this a try after seeing "good" ingredients in what seemed to be decent amounts: zinc oxide for spf, dimethicone, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, ceramides. I ended up liking this product so much that I immediately ordered a spare after seeing it on sale here at drugstore.com

Tip: for all products with hyaluronic acid in it, be sure to apply onto damp skin.

My experience: The non-greasy fast-absorbing smooth texture seem to work especially well on my acne-prone/oily areas. I noticed any "new" acne marks faded faster (which I suspect is due to the niacinamide and spf combination).

However, it doesn't seem to be a good enough occlusive moisturizer for my dryer areas--especially for winter. But no big deal: I fixed this by mixing this moisturizer with a drop or two of organic jojoba oil before applying to damp skin on my dry areas--for my oily areas, I do not mix.

However, a couple of things:

1) I would not recommend this product to friends who shop cruelty-free.

2) I wish the percentage of zinc oxide would be increased. The current percentage seems decent for daily use but if I were to spend the day outside, I would use an spf with a higher percentage of zinc oxide (but then again, I'm pretty picky about spf).

Not Good for my Sensitive Skin!

After going to the dermatologist and being diagnosed with extra sensitive skin and very mild rosacea, my doctor gave me samples of CeraVe AM to use in the day to build up my skins natural barrier (which was deemed non-existant after being through harsh winter weather and what was ultimately causing the rosacea to flare up and the extreme sensitivity) After the first time putting it on my face looked like the redness was emphasised and my ears felt hot too. I ignored this thinking that it was just me thinking about how I was going to react and stressing out about it since I had used almost 6 lotions before this, including cetaphil and neutrogena sensitive, that caused me to have rashes. After waking up on the 3rd day of using the am lotion, I looked in the mirror and discovered that my face was covered in big red blotches and tiny bumps elsewhere! I really wanted to like this lotion but if you have REALLY REALLY sensitive skin, the spf chemicals can be irritating- my dermatologist actually told me this (no idea why they'd give it to me knowing this!) BUT after applying the normal Cetaphil daily lotion that day the redness and allergic reaction was almost completely gone!!! I would definitely reccomend the normal version of this! It doesn't mean that the AM is a bad product, especially for those looking for spf coverage, just that it might not be as gentle if that is your concern. Good luck with your search!

ALSO- Another great gentle lotion that has minimal ingredients is one called DML. Great for people with mite allergies as well as sensitive skin!

      I use this one in the summer. The CeraVe lotion pm is better for the winter because it does not have the spf 30 and is a lighter lotion.

        Comments about CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM, 3 fl oz:

        I had an insane breakout this summer and I needed some sort of sunblock and this, while on the expensive side, I was willing to try and it worked very well. It starts off a bit white but it will fade and be fine in a few minutes. Once I recoved from my skin issues I continued to use this lottion.

          I am a great fan of the Cerave products and wanted to try this product for my face. I thought it was too heavy of a cream for my face so I tried it on my neck and décolletage area and it is great! I am in my mid-50's and my skin has seen its share of sun damage. This cream is great for that and I highly recommend it.

              I've paid a lot more for daily moisturizers with sun block that worked no better (and some of them less well) than this. It just goes on, sinks in without either residual greasiness or the white geisha makeup effect many sunblocks leave, does the job of moisturizing and (I assume) protecting from sun. Was recommended by a dermatologist. I see no reason to ever pay more, will use this from now on.

                Works great with my rosacea sensitive skin. I use this in the morning under additional sunscreen prior to any foundation. I do let the CeraVe and sunscreen soak in 10-15 min prior to foundation or powder. I have used this for 6 months with good results.
                It is a bit spendy but a little goes a long way.

                  Great product, but they changed the bottle to a pump form. My pump never worked, so I used the cap from my old bottle instead. Good idea that didn't work.

                        Love all the CeraVe facial products. I have extremely sensitive skin and until now, the only other option was the expensive "yellow lotion" from the department store. Having this with sunscreen saves time in the morning.
