I use retin-a on my face with the Obagi blender and Obagi Clear cream. Sometimes the Obagi acne serum as well. La Roche-Posay Anthelios sunscreen. I need a moisturizer which JUST MOISTURIZES. I do not want any retinol, glycolic acids, anti-wrinkle ingredients, sunscreens, brightening agents or anything else. Just TRY and find one at the drugstore, it's impossible! What I use on my face is extremely powerful and I don't want to add anything on top of it. My skin is completely porcelain smooth, BUT it requires a LOT of maintenance, I actually break out really easily if I don't take care of it. I don't have sensitive skin, but I will break out with the wrong kind of lotion, usually after two or three days. I have been looking for just the perfect moisturizer for literally years! For a long long time I used the Mary Kay timewise moisturizer for dry skin, but it was never moisturizing enough, especially at night. I was at my boyfriend's house and when i got out of the shower there was a bottle of cetaphil there. I had a vague idea that it was a gentle facial moisturizer, so I put some on and absolutely loved it. The next day I went to use it again but then noticed that it said "perfect for use as an all-over body lotion." I was like, well, I better not use it on my face, and I used it all over my body instead and loved that. It feels very very similar to the Origins Precipitation - at a fraction of the cost. (I will admit Precipitation smells SO good it's worth the price to me.) I checked online and read a bunch of reviews and realized it IS used for the face. I LOVE IT! It is so moisturizing that I don't even need a separate eye cream. My nose tends to get quite oily, and this does not exacerbate it at all. During the day I mix just a dab with my sunscreen. I wear mineral makeup and it does not ball up the way it can over other creams with lots of moisture. If it doesn't break me out it will not break you out! It's so moisturizing, but doesn't make your face stick to your pillow and hair. It feels so good and I enjoy putting it on. Buy this!

I used to use Cetaphil (France) moisturizer beforehand and find it being one of the best moisturizer that I had used, that is why I thought this would be the same thing that I had used but it didn't turn out that way.

If anyone has a sensitive smell like me, you may not like this product. This gives off a weird plastic smell (and it does not come from the bottle) and kinda hesitate me if I should apply this on my skin.

About its moisturizing effect, it doesn't have a great one but I would recommend this to Eczema prone skin like mine. It is considered gentle and doesn't sting.

Although this product is relatively good (acceptable), but I believe there are other moisturizers out there provide a better moisturizing effect and better smell.

    I have used this product every day for over 30 years! It's great and has kept my skin smooth and soft.

    It is fragrance free, which is nice because I like to blend it with other fragranced lotions I like but which aren't very good at moisturizing.

        Comments about Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Fragrance Free, 16 fl oz:

        I have always had chronically dry skin, the kind where I am miserable if I don't moisturize after bathing because I would literally shrivel up. I was always itchy, especially when the weather turned colder in the fall. I used to use Lubriderm, but about 25 years ago switched to Cetaphil. What a difference! I have been using it every since and do not have any of the problems I used to have with Lubriderm, plus I like the fact that Cetaphil is fragrance free. I am such a fan, I think I should own stock in the company!

        Comments about Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Fragrance Free, 16 fl oz:

        I use this product twice a day after I wash my face. My skin is pretty normal, it gets a little dry in Winter but it also can get a little oily in hot weather. It's not really problematic, but it has its own problems too. I breakout occasionally, about once a month or so, but nothing major really, just one or two pimples and they're not bad.

        This moisturizer is great for people with normal to dry skin; it's best to be used in Winter.

        I wouldn't really recommend it for people with oily skin, but maybe if you use a good toner you'll be able to use this moisturizer with no problem.

        I'd give it 5 points (because it suits my skin very well, I think this product is perfection! Especially if used along with the facial cleanser), but the only problem is it can get a little greasy so it may not suit people with oily skin. But overall, I'm totally in LOVE with this moisturizer. I'll use this as long as they make it..

            I have incredibly sensitive, acne-prone skin. I have used numerous products for acne control, but this moisturizer has remained a constant in my facial care routine. It is incredibly gentle for sensitive skin, but it moisturizes well. It is not greasy and it does not cause my face to break out. I apply this moisturizer in the morning, and I can still feel its effects in the afternoon. It does not feel heavy and I do not have shiny skin because of it. Rather my skin feels refreshed and moisturized all day. I highly recommend this product.

            The nurse practioner at my doctor's office suggested I use this lotion but I threw it away after two months. It does smell strangely, which I can handle, but it takes a long time to absorb and even after ten minutes my hands were always greasy until I used a hand towel to remove the excess. It is so rich that you only need a tiny amount but I'd rather have a lotion that penetrates my skin quickly.

                  I have super dry winter skin and my regular facial moisturizer wasn't cutting it. A friend suggested I try this product on my face as it worked well for him.

                  ZING! Holy cow! It buuurrrrned! I immediately splashed water all over my face to rinse it off. It was terrible! So much for this product being made for "sensitive skin". I'm not sure if it's because I have a regular tweeze/wax regimen and my skin may be more sensitive, but I was shocked! But the person who suggested it is a "dude" who shaves daily so I don't understand what the difference would be?

                  I figured I would use up the bottle as a body lotion, but I found it to be greasy and just didn't absorb well. Not to mention, it doesn't smell too good.

                  This product didn't work for me. Yuck.

                   – Relieve and protect dry skin with Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Fragrance Free. The lightweight formula works to soothe distressed skin on the face, hands and feet, and is ideal for use all over the body. The rich suite of ingredients, including macadamia nut oil and vitamin E, not only provides the hydration that dry skin craves, but helps the tissues continue to retain moisture. Its non-greasy formula leaves skin feeling soft and smooth, while it maintains the important mantle layer that protects against future damage. Use it every day after a warm bath or shower, and throughout the day to boost skin tissue hydration and maintain the smooth, supple look and feel of healthy skin.

                  Gentle Power



                  Hydration does not have to be overpowering. The philosophy behind Cetaphil is that skin should be nurtured but not smothered. That is why the formulas are designed to be light, but effective. Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion, Fragrance Free gently moisturizes, builds skin strength and supports the natural protective barrier that the skin requires to be healthy. In the end, the formulators at Cetaphil believe that collaboration and connection are more effective than command and control. Soft, supple skin comes from the power of gentle.

                  Camp Wonder



                  The importance of skin health goes beyond relief for dry skin. The company leaders and employees of Cetaphil also support the idea of caring for children suffering from skin diseases. Every summer, nearly 100 children who face skin conditions are given the opportunity to spend a week at Camp Wonder, where they can make friends and long-lasting connections and, best of all, just enjoy being kids at camp. Cetaphil provides a generous grant, employee volunteers and supplies of gentle Cetaphil products during the summer and throughout the year to help support the children's health needs.
