My dermatologist recommended Vanicream Lite for my face, since I was having a problem with blackheads, even at age 64! It worked, but I wasn't totally satisfied with its moisturizing properties, so when I found Vanicream Moisturing Skin Cream on drugstore.com, I gave it a try. And I'm glad I did. Since I still have the Vanicream Lite, I have only used the regular Vanicream at night, or if I am staying home without makeup. ( I use the Vanicream Lite under makeup.)

It may feel heavy as it goes on, but it is absorbed quickly and doesn't have a greasy look.

None of the Vanicream products have annoying scents, thank goodness! And though I have rosacea, I haven't found any of them to be irritating.

I am now trying other Vanicream products and am so pleased with all of them. They may be a little pricey, but certainly not as expensive as department store brands. And I like the fact that my dermatologist recommended them.

I have extremely... and I mean EXTREMELY... sensitive skin. I spend $50 on creams/lotions per month. I had heard fantastic things about Vanicream (many called it the 'more natural' and far better version of Cetaphil and Cerave, which are the only two I can use)... but I'm not as thrilled about it as I thought I'd be. It doesn't absorb very well and the worst part is that it's quite sticky! I can still feel it sticking to the surface of my skin long after I rub it on. It gets on the surface of my desk from my arms and sticks, and gets white marks on certain dark fabrics. I don't have much arm hair, but it feels like it just sticks every hair down and I have to smooth it out the right way! It's just heavy and sticky. It moisturizes well, and I'm not having any allergic reaction to it (which is always a plus...) - but the stickiness is a real turn-off. Cetaphil is refreshing and smooth, while Cerave is very light and silky - and both moisturize fantastically - so I won't be using the pricier Vanicream again.

    Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 4 oz:

    I have very sensitive skin and I have tried everything from neutrogena to eucerin sensitive skin and redness reducer. Vanicream is the best product out there for dry sensitive skin. It goes on easily and has no odor. It is thick so if you want something lighter try the light lotion, I use both. Cream at night light lotion during the day and it works, no more dry skin...stopping to add lotion in the middle of the day because my face is peeling. I recommend this to everyone.

      Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 4 oz:

      I have really dry sensitive skin and am always struggling to find something that makes my skin happy. Vanicream does a nice job. Goes on like a lotion and keeps my face soft. Has a slight unusual scent but not too noticeable. I put it on after I wash my face at nice and it immediately soothes any dryness.

        I am a parent of 2 so a great buy is awesome to find. My 3 year old son has Eczema very badly. I took him to the dermotologist and she recommended trying this cream along with the Vanicream bar soap. The Vanicream worked so well that you can't even tell he has Eczema anymore. I would absolutely recommend this product to anyone!

                My daughter has eczema and we use the Vanicream in tub with the pump for her and love that. I bought this to put in her diaper bag. It's not sticky at all. It's great to put on under her jammies at night but also use it throughout the day. Doesn't seem quite as moisturizing as the tub but we are faithful Vanicream users and I love that this is easier to take along than the tub with the pump. Will continue to buy for her diaper bag.

                    I have eczema so I am limited on moisturizer choices. To make matters worse, I am allergic to lanolin so I am unable to use Eucerin and Aquaphor, which are traditionally good for eczema. I had to do a lot of research to find Vanicream, which is not well known. It works as good as any other moisturizer, I mean it doesn't "cure" eczema. My only complaint is I wish it came in a thick version (like Eucerin). I like a thicker cream to put on my face under makeup. Other than that, Vanicream is great.
