    I have eczema for 3 years. My allergy specialist recommend me to use this brand. I have been using it on my body after shower and bath. it has no irritants,so my skin can stay perfectly clear and no itch, no swelling. It absorbs instantly and light weight, good for summer.

    I orded Vanicream SPF60 along with lite lotion. It can also protect my skin
    when I go outside.

    So far so good.

    I had high hopes for this product since I'd used the Vanicream cream and was looking for an everyday moisturizer that wasn't as heavy. I tried this for several days and found that although it wasn't greasy and absorbed quickly, it didn't provide as much moisture as I was hoping for, and I had to re-apply several times over the course of the day. I have severely dry, sensitive skin and adult eczema, so moisture is important in fighting off flare-ups. I used this in combination with the Vanicream bar soap, and though I didn't have any breakouts with these products, I wasn't impressed with the longevity or moisture of this product- probably wouldn't buy this again.

      Comments about Vanicream Lite Lotion for Sensitive Skin, 16 fl oz:

      Healthy human skin has an acidic pH of about 4 to 6. An increase in pH (more basic or alkaline) can disrupt the activity of enzymes involved in barrier function and anti-microbial protection, resulting in bacterial overgrowth and a weakened barrier.

      Many of the moisturizers we apply to our skin help in multiple ways: they add water, seal the skin, and can even add fats and nutrients to help the skin heal. However, they probably can alter the pH of the skin, especially if they are applied frequently and in large amounts as recommended.

      My mother has lymphedema and uses lotions under her compression dressings. After trying several brands that have a "low level pH", Vanicream is the only one that does not cause issues with her condition or make her dressings "gunky." GREAT product - thank you!!

        Comments about Vanicream Lite Lotion for Sensitive Skin, 16 fl oz:

        I use this on my face both morning and night. It is light, frangrance free and great for sensitive skin. I am 30 years old now and a couple years ago was still dealing with acne and tiny little blackheads all over my face. About 2 years ago I decided to try the "less is more" theory. I have been using the Phisoderm soap bar to wash the makeup off of my face at night followed by this lotion. Then in the morning I just rinse my face with water followed by this lotion before putting on makeup. No crazy chemicals that make my skin tingly or bleach my pillowcases. My face has honestly never looked better. I am hooked on this for life!

            I am a two-time breast cancer survivor, and so, I avoid lotions and cosmetics that have chemicals that are suspected carcinogens. This lotion fits that need. Fragrances make my skin break out (sadly), and this is fragrance-free. Great product.

              A little goes a long way. Very soothing, great value. I have very sensitive skin, and this soothes it and keeps it soft all day. I've also noticed my complexion looks clearer. I use this with the Free & Clear Liquid Cleanser for Sensitive Skin daily.

                I apply this right after I wash my make-up off at night. Doesn't sting or irritate my skin. I have Rosacea, my skin is sensitive and thirsty for good moisturizer. I am so pleased. Was recommended by my dermatologist. Vanicream has an EXCELLENT line of products, I use them all. Would not hesitate to try anything new by them.

                    My dermatologist recommended this product. I have very sensitive skin and cannot use many creams, lotions or moisturizers as they tend to cause rashes or other problems. Vanicream works for me! I recommended it to my husband and now he uses it too!

                      I've been fighting contact dermatitis for months. My dermatologist finally recommended this lotion, and my skin is finally starting to calm down. It seems a bit heavy at first, but absorbs quickly and leave my skin feeling much better.

                      Comments about Vanicream Lite Lotion for Sensitive Skin, 16 fl oz:

                      I've used other Vanicream lotions in the past so I thought this would be a good choice for my dry, sensitive skin. I typically don't use moisturizer on my face (per my dermatologist's recommendation) but my face has been dry and peeling all winter. This has worked well so far. Since I typically don't wear lotion, I find it to feel a little greasy/heavy, so I typically use it only at night. It has helping with the flaking/peeling issues I was having without causing breakouts.
