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 was disappointed based on reviews....

I don't DISLIKE this product, I just was disappointed that I did not get superior results from what I was already using. (Aveeno, various formulations and/or Cetaphil Advanced Healing)

I don't DISLIKE this product, I just was disappointed that I did not get superior results from what I was already using. (Aveeno, various formulations and/or Cetaphil Advanced Healing)

I checked "greasy" as a Con, but that's not quite accurate as it did NOT stain my clothing or sheets. It just left my skin feeling like there was a residue of lotion left....as if it had "sealed" the surface of my skin or something.

After using for a week or more, I saw no noticeable improvement in the dryness of my skin. However, my skin was not adversely affected either.

Also, I did not enjoy the pump as much as I thought I would. It doesn't dispense that much at a time, so if you are lotioning your entire body, it seems easier to just dispense from a tube of lotion instead.

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

    My dermatologist recommended this cream and I'm so glad she did. I have oily, sensitive skin and I've spent a fortune on different brand products that either caused me to break out in a rash or whiteheads or acne. This product is a miracle in a jar. I use it on my face and body with no breakouts. My skin is baby soft and people are telling me my skin "looks like porcelain" which no one has ever said to me before. Dry patches have now disappeared, oily patches are balanced and my skin is better than it has ever been. And another big plus is that it is so inexpensive! It is pennies compared to the very expensive products I was using. This is a big winner!

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

      My eczema-prone daughter in law recommended Vanicream to me, based on her friend's recommendation. This is now my every day, must-use moisturizer. It is described as a vanishing cream, a really old-time term, but magically, it does "vanish" when you apply it, leaving no greasy, heavy feeling, or smell; just perfectly moist, healthy and smooth skin. I have psoriasis and am prone to eczema, and Vanicream not only softens and prepares my skin for the Rx ointments I have to use for psoriasis, it actually made my eczema disappear (hence the VANI in Vanicream!). The label says it is good for face, hands, feet, body or any other part you may have. I tried it on my face one night and it was smooth and moist the next morning, with no scaliness, redness or tightness. I have very sensitive skin, and hesitate to try new products, but this is truly magic.

          I had used Bath & Body Cream for years and all of sudden I started getting red patches on my skin. My dermatologist recommended this lotion and as soon as I started using this, my skin condition disappeared! I won't use anything else. The dispenser could be better. There is nothing wrong with the size or the pump. It is just that part inside is not quite long enough so when you get near the bottom, you have to remove the top and scoop the lotion out in order to use the remainder. Not the end of the world, just annoying.

                  My daughter's dermatologist recommended Vanicream when she was eight years old. She had .been using a vaseline type product that was very greasy.
                  This is highly effective for eczema/ dry skin. I could only order this from drugstore,com as the other drugstores don't sell it. I bought the pump version. It also comes in a tub that allows you to insert the pump so you don't have to keep buying the more expensive pump version. There is also a light version that is more lotiony and we keep it downstairs to use anytime.

                    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.
