I have extremely sensitive and acne-prone skin and this is the only moisturizer that works for me. It does not irritate and it does not break me out. I use this on my face because I have tried every moisturizer out there and nothing worked for me. They were either too heavy and greasy, or they were so light and ineffective that it would do nothing for me. Others would clog my pores or cause irritation. This lotion is wonderful. I will never use anything else. I use acne treatments on my face so they can reallly leave my face pretty dried out, but this lotion works so well, I can't say enough about it. My face has transformed. It feels so soft and looks so much healthier. I use it after washing my face at night and I use it under my foundation in the morning. My foundation goes on so smoothly. Highly recommended!!!!

This lotion is great for softening skin, but after three months of use I can easily attribute this lotion and their cleanser for making my skin super sensitive and itchy. I got this mainly because using acne treatments is drying so I wanted a gentle lotion to combat that. My dry skin is also easily stripped by most cleansers. Well I stopped using anything else but Cerave lotion and cleanser and my face is COVERED in clogged pores, blackheads, and general irration. The lotion never seemed to sink into my skin and my face looked like a greasy, dirty mess. It also caused redness and irration upon applying even if I didnt use cleanser. I developed cyst like bumps and scars that never seem to heal but only get bigger. I really cannot believe no one else on drugstore.com has experienced this. Other review sites have plenty of people who confirm the awful effects of Cerave products.

Pros

  • Moisturize Hair
  • Not Greasy

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Combination Skin
    • HAIR

    Comments about CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion, 12 fl oz:

    Believe it or not, this is the best hair lotion I have ever used!
    Just believe me and give it a try!
    I use it on wet or dry hair, and my hair get moisturized and soft, without any greasiness, residue, or fragrance. There is no buildup. It is just amazing!
    By the way, my hair is thick and wavy.
    However, as body lotion, it is too light for my winter dry skin.

      I use CeraVe several times daily and before retiring for bed. I have dry skin and like the fact that it doesn't feel oily or greasy.
      It soothes irritated skin.

          I have sensitive skin that tends to be pathologically dry in winter. I used to use a heavy cream in winter and a lighter version in summer, but this does the trick for all seasons. I can't believe how a moisturizer this light can still be so effective for dry skin!

              My dermatologist recommended this face moisturizer for my over 50 but sometimes still breaking out skin. I now use it all over - it's unscented so it doesn't interfere with my perfume. I've tried fancy mall brands and always come back. Absorbs quickly.

                I use it 3 times/day for my extreme dry skin and now my skin is normal.
                I had previously used many different products all of which were not helpful. I am grateful to my Dermatologist who told me of this excellent product. But it must be the one marked "normal to dry skin," for the other Cerave products do not work for me.

                      This is my go to facial moisturizer during the winter months and sometimes during warm months. This is the perfect lotion to use with my prescription acne medications that tend to dry my skin even in the summer. This lotion fully absorbs and doesn't leave a film. Perfect for my sensitive dry skin. I can wear under my foundation and doesn't make me oily.

                      CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion

                       – Help repair, replenish and protect skin and promote its own natural moisturizing abilities with CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion. The outermost layer of skin, called the stratum corneum, acts to retain the moisture and vital lipids, required by the skin structure to remain soft and healthy. When this skin barrier function is weakened by eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea, atopic dermatitis or by challenging environmental conditions, all layers of skin tissues can be damaged. Using an advanced, patented technology called multivesicular emulsion (MVE®), this lotion from CeraVe helps to restore and maintain the moisture balance of skin. It has been developed by researchers working with leading dermatologists and is accepted by the National Eczema Association.

                      The Skin's Natural Balance



                      Healthy skin not only guards the body from external infection and other challenges, it also protects against loss of the vital ceramides (lipid molecules) and keratolytic agents, while maintaining the proper balance of moisture needed for tissue function. This natural protective action keeps the supporting elastin and collagen cells strong and promotes a healthy skin cell turn-over, necessary for healthy, supple, youthful-looking skin. CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion is a light-weight formula of ceramides, capric/caprylic stearic triglycerides (derived from coconuts) and other essential ingredients that penetrates deep into the skin to moisturize and nourish the tissues.

                      A Patented Delivery System



                      As part of a daily skin care regimen, CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion provides skin tissues with the vital ingredients that help to repair, replenish and protect the skin barrier. Using an advanced, patented MVE® technology, the lotion contains layered vesicles that are absorbed deep into skin tissues, where they slowly release their ingredients over a 24-hour period, instead of in a single "pulse." The formula is non-greasy, non-irritating, fragrance-free and non-comedogenic to avoid clogged pores, perfect for the face as well as all over the body.
