I love Vanicream. A friend turned me onto it. I have sensitive, dry, and acne prone skin with spots of eczema on my elbows in the winter. I love this creamy and rich moisturizer because it does not clog pores , it absorbs nicely, and heavily moisturizes for hours. I love it on my face under make up and it keeps eczema away. I also love that it is fragrnace free for sensitive skin and will not interfere with any fragrances I may want to wear. I have bought so many lotions over the years for lots of money and nothing is better. I also worked for Estee Lauder and have experience with all the department store products and I know that there is nothing like Vanicream at this price.

I was first introduced to this cream by my mother, who has sensitive skin due to a chronic illness. I tried the cream during the late spring and loved it! The price was great compared to natural and/or organic body creams that I was using at the time. So when I finished my last moisture body balm I ordered Vanicream from drugstore.com because I had a difficult time finding a retailer nearby that carried the cream.

I tend to need more moisture during the fall & winter months, probably because clothing, especially made with synthetic materials like polyester, absorb moisture from your skin. Now that it is fall, I find that I must reapply the cream at least once to restore moisture to my skin, but I will continue to use this product.

    Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 16 oz:

    Vanicream is the best moisturizing skin cream on the market in my opinion. My dermatologist recommended it to me years ago because it doesn't have all the petroleum base that the other hand lotion have. Also all the perfumes and things that actually dry out the skin. That is what my dermatologist told me. I use it every day on my dry calloused heals, elbows and hands. Over the years with continual use I have less problems. I definitely recommend vanicream. I have got several people I know using it now that I get it for them on line at drugstore.com.

    Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 16 oz:

    i have severely sensitive skin and am prone to contact dermatitis which results in severe eczema. i've used top of the line moisturizers for my face from places like barney's, saks, nm but they all have preservatives (they cost a pretty penny so i imagine they need some sort of preservative in them). unfortunately, i reacted to all of them and had to stop using them as i aged. after especially horrible reaction to a cle de peau moisturizer, my dermatologist recommended vanicream to just calm my skin down. i've been using it for my face & body for the past 3 yrs and am so thankful to have found it. my derm also says this is the compound they use when blending rx b/c it really has nothign but moisturizing agents. safe, comfortable, soothing, i cannot live w/o it now. it is thick so be patient. once you get used to the seemingly heavy texture, you'll almost feel like it's a protective layer between your skin and the elements out there.

      Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 16 oz:

      Works excellently for very dry skin and on eczema. It's a pretty heavy lotion, so you really have to rub it in, but it's worth that extra time. Nothing else has worked as well for me, and it doesn't particularly smell like anything, so that's nice.

        Found Vanicream in my search for products that were lanolin free. I use it as a night time facial moisturizer. I use the Vanicream Lite for daily use under make-up and love that too. Wish they made one with an SPF for daytime.

          Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 16 oz:

          I was looking for a face cream that would really soften my skin without causing blemishes. After reading the reviews, I began using Vanicream about a month ago. It works great on my face, and I have been using it on my very dry feet, hands, elbows & knees. I am very pleased with how much better my feet look and feel. I plan to reorder soon.

              I use this product to moisturize my son's skin. I've tried other moisturizers with him, but his skin would burn. This cream works great and has done wonders in smoothing out his dry, cracked skin. It does feel a bit greasy on my hands, but I'm just so happy to see my son's skin restored.

                  Comments about Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream, 16 oz:

                  My daughter's dermatologist recommended this during her annual evaluation this year, and finally, because of this cream, for the first winter in my daughter's 6 years of being alive, her hands aren't riddled with cracked open cuts at every joint and knuckle and wrist. She's had terrible eczema on her hands since infancy, and my heart aches when I see open cuts on her hands. This cream controls the severe flare-ups that cause those cuts. I've bought everything recommended to me by all the doctors she's seen and mommy groups, including organic pure shea butter that costs $8/oz., but nothing prevented those open cuts during the winter months. So not only is Vanicream the only effective remedy for her, but it's also inexpensive. Her hands are the trouble areas, but she feels itchy in other parts of her body, so I put this on her entire body after bathing, before bed, and every morning before leaving home. If you have open cuts, apply your prescribed medicine first, and then apply this cream on top of it until the cuts heal. This cream speeds up healing, and after the cuts are healed, you can just use the cream by itself to control the flare-ups. With other products, I've had to put gloves on her, which she naturally takes off overnight, but Vanicream worked even without the gloves, I think because it's so thick (it's a cream, not a lotion). Undoubtedly, I will continue to buy this product.
