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 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:

      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.

                After being diagnosed with several contact allergies including most fragrances and preservatives this is the only product I can use to moisturize my skin AND I love how well it works. My skin has never felt better. I use it on face and body and my kids as well. Love it!!!!

                      I have tried various body creams but they never seem to work very well. This item is a good moisturizer. It helps with my dry patches. The only bad thing I have to say is that it feels tacky the minute it is applied. The tacky-feel will disappear afterwards. The pump dispenser is a plus.
