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.

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

This was recommended by my dermatologist for my severe rosacea. I was instructed to use it on my face for extremely inflamed, dry, scaly face. It feels sticky & heavy after initial application, but once fully absorbed, was fine. As my skin started to heal, the cream felt too heavy on my face, and I switched to the lotion. (Although I will use it on my face when I'll be out in windy or very cold weather to prevent chapping.)
However... this stuff is great as a body cream! My winter lizard scales have disappeared, my rough knees, feet, & elbows are soft and the chicken skin on my arms is gone. My skin feels luxuriously soft. It's sticky for about 5 minutes after application. And it truly has NO AROMA.

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

        This has been quite a nice surprise as I've been avoiding all oils on my face. Just looking at my skin wrong makes it erupt in hundreds of acne flareups, and even mineral oil is a problem for me (something that most people with acne find works for them).

        This was quite a lovely surprise, recommended to me by my dermatologist. Still, I picked a time when I could destroy my face and not too many people would be there to witness it, but I must say my fears were misguided. This hasn't caused any acne, and leaves my face soothed and soft.

        I'm still an oil slick - nothing helps with that - but it's quite nice to have a moisturizer that works well since my dermatologist says it's essential even for very oily skin like my own.

              I was a little skeptical, but I really like this lotion. It has no scent at all, really, and while it is thick, it really does soak into the skin. Not greasy at all.

                  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!

                  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.
