From my face which is normal to combination in the Spring and Summer, and dry in the Winter, to my heals which in the winter are dry and cracked and really sore - this cream works and works well! And amazingly it does it without feeling heavy or greasy.
* I use it under make-up - it gives a lovely matte base, it feels 'wet' and kind of cold when you first apply it - nice - refreshing.
* I use it as a night cream - I just apply a little extra and the next morning my face looks and feels great.
* I use it on my body and hands, it works great, even on dry winter skin - and never feels greasy. It even heals that nasty itchy winter skin that drives you crazy!
* And I use it on what were once sore cracked heals - not anymore - they are now soft and feminine once more!
This cream is amazing. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and touchable and give it back some of that youthful fullness that we all lose as we age. It seems to moisturize from deep down under the skin, this isn't just a surface fix. So your skin loses that thin "old" look - I especially notice that on the backs of my hands and around my eyes and mouth - nice!
Now I'm not 21 anymore so I can't say my skin has never looked better ........ BUT it sure hasn't looked this good in quite a while! I just wish I'd found CeraVe when was 21. Boy oh boy would I ever be looking good now!!
Having said that I've got my 17 year old using it now and she also loves it - maybe we've found the Fountain of Youth!! I'll let you know in 20 years!
Thank you, CeraVe!
By the way I use the CeraVe cleanser too and it is also wonderful - I love these products!!
Do yourself a favor and try them.

I really wanted this cream and the companion lotion to work for me. Sadly, upon application, this cream burned and continued to burn even after splashing with water. I had to get my cleanser out and wash my face a second time. I have dry, sensitive skin and have had huge problems finding lotions and creams to use on my facial skin. I have been through the gamit: Olay, Cetaphil, Sarna, Aveeno calming, Purpose, you name it, I feel I have tried it. Dove discontinued the only product I had success with as of late. I am currently using a specialty line and its ok, but gives me the occasional pimple and isn't the most cost effective either. Sigh...my quest moves onward.

          Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, 16 oz:

          I have very sensitive skin. Lately, my skin had been sooooo irritating and red:( I'm very careful to choose any moisturizer because it breaks me out so easily. Let me tell you, this is AMAZING. It says normal to dry skin but I have oily skin and it's not greasy at all. I'm wearing this cream even daytime without any make up and my skin doesn't become oily till midnight. It's so gentle and doesn't break me out at all. I'm so glad that I found this. Only con is package. But everything else is so great!

            My dermatologist recommended this product. I have NEVER had a moisturizer work this well! I can go a couple days and my skin still feels soft and smooth. I live in a very dry climate and have had problems with dry skin but since using this no more itching, eczema, or flaking.

              My husband and I both use this moisturizing cream. It has solved his dry, itchy skin problem that nothing else could touch! In fact, his doctor recommended it to him. I also use. It's not greasy and tops any other lotion to moisturize...and that counts since we live in Arizona!

                I've tried literally every moisturizer known to mankind! This truly lives up to its reputation. My DERM recommended this highly due to its special ingredients. (made by doctors)This helped clear up the aftermath of my hives, (I had snake-like skin after medicating the hives for two months) and it even makes my heels feel soft and moisturized. NOTHING has done this before! You get used to the jar, but might love this in a BIG tube instead, easier but wouldn't give it up for anything. It has literally helped my dry skin (all over) become like skin was made to be like. (baby skin :) I'm 64!!

                Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, 16 oz:

                I have been using this brand for years. My dermatologist prescribed it when it was prescription based only. I was supposed to use it for my pilar keratosis. Now I use it daily as my go to skin care product.

                I use my cerave CREAM at night. When I wake up in the morning to wash my face, I don't need any cleansers because the cerave is still on my face and acts as a cream cleanser. My face feels hydrated, not stripped.
                I generally will use neutragena rapid wrinkle cream first. Wait a few minutes then use the cerave cream before bed. I feel like it locks in the treatment lotion below it and creates a barrier to keep everything from evaporating off you skin at night. It's awesome during the winter months when the heating drys out your skin.
                The cream is a little heavy for us in the day under make up. I use the lotion instead. Then apply a bb cream with SPF 30.
                For me, if it's been a while since I exfoliated my face, the cream will cause dead skin to slough off as I am rubbing it into my face. That's just another benefit.
                I often use the cerave lotion as an under eye cream.
                I used to have the cerave AM SPF 30 lotion but I found that it was too greasy. Perhaps the formulation has changed now. The packaging certainly has. I will be sure to try the spf50 soon.
                Cerave is great for all over body and face use. My husband has even started using it daily and loves it. The skin on his lower legs was dry and scaley so I suggested he use it. He is hooked. And the scales were gone in a week.
                I'm still trying to figure out if their is a point to buying the PM formula which contains the niacinamide. Can't figure out what it actually does.

                  THis is not a thick or rich moisturizer, sorta lighweght. Feels wierd when you first put it on but within a couple of minutes your skin is soft, I use at night and in the mornig under my makeup. I have very oily skin and this seems to work fine.
