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.

    My daughter-in-law is a dermatologist and uses this product on herself and my grandchildren. It's the first moisturizer which hasn't caused my sensitive skin to break out. It's a keeper!

        My skin is VERY sensitive and this is the only product that I can use that does not cause issues. I am able to use it from head to toe which makes life very simple. I use it on my kids as well.

        I received the tube with a blue cap, but as the image provided here the cap is white. I am wondering whether they are authentic and from the same brand.

          Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 4 oz:

          My children have severely dry skin and eczema. We've tried nearly every moisturizer on the market-- from bargains to expensive brands. So far, I've been pleasantly surprised by the Vanicream cream. It doesn't burn my kids' skin *as much* as other moisturizers (Cetaphil, Eucerin, etc.). And that's a big deal for us.

            i have spent thousands of dollars on cream for my extremely dry/sensative skin & have used cream that is only available by prescription & cost 100.00 for 2 small tubes & this cream is just as good & cost a whole lot less.

                I love vanicream.
                It's super gentle on my skin. Though the lotion feels greasy at first, my skin absorb it fast leaving moisture.
                I have combination skin, and it has been hard to find something that can moisturize and not break out my skin. This cream works for me.
                I have to say the smell is not that attractive, but I dont mind.
