Vanicream RAVE

Pros
Really truly hydrates skin instead of just sit on top of skin, making skin baby soft and smooth
Matte and smooth finish when absorbed

Cons
It takes a little time for this cream to set and absorb.
Before absorbed, this cream is sticky
However these cons can be eased by applying this cream on wet face or wet the hand and kind of blend and rub this cream with water in the palm then apply on the face.

Skin profile

oily acne prone flaky and rough due to acne treatment and have been using tretinoin for a month.

It is 2:39am, I was waken by my cat. Before I went to bed, I simply washed my face with cetaphil daily cleanser and applied vanicream. I felt my face with my finger and went to the mirror saw that not only my pimples are a lot of calmer but also my skin was not oily at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I always wake up with a oily face but not this time!Every now and then I apply nothing before bed and also woke up with no oily face. This time is I woke up with no oily face yet still feel my face is hydrated and soft. Flaky has been improved a lot. I think ever since I started tretinoin especially I increased the usage frequency (every other night), my skin looks "old" due to excessive flaky .Like when I was using Alpha Hydrox lotion, my skin looks and feels rough and peel-y and oily at the same time. I have tried major things on the market that claim to help dryness (CeraVe, Cetaphil, Embryolisse, Clinigue). Nothing helped but either making me oily sleek or breaking me out until I tried vanicream and have a overnight improvement of my skin texture.

I purchased this lotion on a recommendation for my eczema. I have extremely sensitive skin and am currently living in a cold and humid climate. The local dermatologist recommended one lotion, but I didn't like it, so purchased this from the States based on a recommendation. The lotion is gentle enough for my skin. However, it recommends that you apply two to three times daily and when I did this, it left a film on my skin that ended up irritating my skin by the end of the day which counteracts the whole reason I purchased the lotion. If you don't have extremely sensitive skin, this product could work for you. I found that I had to use wet-wipes to remove the lotion before I could reapply in order to avoid the irritation.

    The design of the container is great. Although this is a thick lotion, i have not had a problem with it being stuck. Its recyclable, so I can use the container and pump for other things, or transfer the pump to another container. The lotion is nice and thick, but not oil. I am black and I don't have to keep reapplying. This product was recommended to me for my 3year old, by my aunt. My aunt has 4 boys, who are allergic to everything and has very sensitive skin.

      Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream with Pump Dispenser, 1 lb:

      I have combination, sensitive skin on my face. Most facial lotions have chemicals or added scents that irritate my skin to the point that it looks & feels like I have a sunburn. Even Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Lotion stung. I spent many hours researching which ingredients can cause irritation. I found numerous references to Vanicream, as it is used in the medical profession and by pharmacists as a compounding agent. I checked the ingredient list, and it contained no irritants. In fact, the ingredient list is very short, which is a good thing in the sensitive skin world. Less is more! This cream is very moisturizing, smooth, and makes my skin calm and soft. Some people may find Vanicream to be too heavy, but it is perfect for me. I can't say enough about how this product has changed my life. A must buy for anyone that suffers from sensitive skin.

      My allergist suggested Vani Cream for my excema on my hands. NOTHING has helped this past year. I later up with this then top it of with vaseline and I have my fingers/hands back! That simple. I thought that all of the higher up creams were basically the same, wrong~ I'm convinced and will never stray to anything else for my skin issue.

        Recommended by allergist. At first I thought it was too thick (and it is for all over the body use. It doesn't spread as easily as I'd like on larger areas so I'm going to try the light version for all over use) but after a few days I got used to it. I haven't seen anyone else comment on this, but I actually have noticed that the few wrinkles I have are getting less noticeable. I have combination skin and it doesn't make my face greasy. I am really happy with it.

                    Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream with Pump Dispenser

                     – For over 40 years, Pharmaceutical Specialties has been making high quality creams and lotions for sensitive skin. Central to its range is Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, which now comes in a handy pump dispenser that minimizes mess.

                    Soothing and Nourishing Formula



                    Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream is the ideal solution when you are looking for a soothing, non-greasy moisturizer to calm and hydrate red, irritated skin. It can be used to soothe sunburn and helps to minimize blistering if applied at an early stage. The cream is quickly absorbed and does not leave behind a sticky residue, making it ideal for use across the body because you can dress immediately after application.

                    Long-Lasting Hydration from Head to Toe



                    This nurturing cream can be used on the face and across the body, including hands, feet, knees and elbows. Simply massage it in as often as necessary to keep skin feeling supple and soft.

                    Safe for Use on Sensitive Skin



                    Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream is safe for use on sensitive skin because it does not contain many common ingredients that can cause irritation. This includes synthetic fragrances, colorings, sulfates, gluten and parabens. This hydrating cream can be used to soothe and moisturize skin that is prone to conditions such as atopic dermatitis and psoriasis. The National Eczema Association has awarded Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream its seal of acceptance, indicating that this emollient is suitable for individuals with eczema or sensitive skin conditions.

                    Suitable for Children



                    This intensive moisturizing cream is so gentle, it is even suitable for use on children's skin. The handy pump dispenser is an invaluable benefit when trying to apply cream to an active child. No more juggling open containers which can tip or spill. Simply press the pump to dispense the cream onto the palm of your hand and massage it in.
