no irritation, no greasy residue

- Target User

this lotion soothed his skin, and caused no irritation whatsoever

- Ulta User


good for acne

it restores and strengthens my skin, improves my overall tone and texture, minimizes my pores and helps clear my acne by not clogging my pores

- Ulta User

i have very combination and acne-prone skin and this has been the best moisturizer for it so far

- Viewpoints User



it works well with lightweight texture base products like the neutrogena healthy skin anti-aging perfector, but it's a nightmare with my physician healthy foundation or it cosmetics cc cream

- Ulta User

this moisturizer does a great job of keeping my face hydrated, is light-weight, absorbs quickly into the skin, and does not leave my face looking shiny

- Target User



i use this product everyday for hands and face helps my skiname stay hydrated and refreshed

- Target User

this product was recommended by my dermatologist, i love the over night moisturizing my face feels healthier and looks amazing

redness relief

most moisturizers burn or turn my face red

- Walgreens User

it feels good on my skin, doesn't burn or irritate my face and the price is a fraction of the price of some of the high end sensitive skin moisturizers that i've tried but left my face red, irritated or in hives

- Ulta User

uneven skintone

evens out skin

i have smooth even skin

- Ulta User

even if your skin isn't dry and you just want healthier looking skin, the pm formula is awesome

- Drugstore User



i just love how how bright and soft it makes my skin look and feel

- Target User

i use this in the morning and at night after i wash my face and it helps brighten my face for the day

Great no-frills moisturizer

I use this day and night and it's a great moisturizer. While pricey for a drugstore product, note that CeraVe in general makes use of hyaluronic acid, which is scientifically proven to be one of the best moisturizing ingredients found to date. Supposedly hyaluronic acid can hold 1000x its water weight, and its been one of the most sought after ingredients in skin care products (esp pricey lines from Asia). A lot of high end skin products are expensive because of hyaluronic acid, but you can find it right in CeraVe at your local drugstore (so the $12 ish price tag is worth it!) What I love about this PM lotion is that it's like a gel lotion, and sinks right into my face when I pat it in. Everytime I apply, I feel as if my face drank in a glass of water. It's amazing. If I use this during the day, I still do end up oily after a few hours (perhaps the only con to this product) but I mean...my skin's just been crazy like that, so it's not necessarily the product's fault. I've used this product continuously for maybe 3 months now and I've not once had to battle dry skin on my face at all. CeraVe PM is fragrance free and is supposed to be suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin. I had a bad battle with mild ezcema on my face for a few months and CeraVe PM was the only moisturizer that agreed with my skin, so it's definitely gentle. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

I get severely dry skin and occasional psoriasis, but my skin breaks out SO easily. Every moisturizer that actually moisturized would make me break out, and moisturizers that didn’t make me break out didn’t moisturize at all. I was so happy to find this! I think it feels lightweight but also soothes skin immediately. It does take a bit to melt into the skin, but after a few minutes it doesn’t feel greasy (I actually like to put on my B.B. cream before it absorbs into my skin because I think it helps it blend better). And it comes with so much for such a good price! (Hint: plus you can get a $4 off coupon on the CeraVe website)

Broke me out, very greasy

I have very resilient skin and I hardly break out besides the occasional stress pimple once every few months. I was really surprised that after using this for one week, I got a face full of small white bumps! At first I wasn't sure what could be causing it but I switched to a different moisturizer just in case. My skin finally went back to normal after a few weeks. A few months later, I was out of lotion so I decided to use this again as a placeholder, but after only 1 use I broke out again in little bumps all over my face. I guess I'm allergic to this or something. I do notice that this lotion is really greasy and leaves my face feeling sticky and heavy for hours afterwards. I have really dry skin so I've never been this offput by a lotion before. Also, it has a really strange smell in my opinion, very medicinal. Of course everyone will have different experiences but for me, this was a no-go. Very strange because I know this is often recommended for sensitive skin, and usually I'm not that picky about my lotions since my skin tolerates most things well.

Healing AND SPF 30!!

I am getting older (mid 50's) and have always had dry skin. This past year, it has become super dry, sensitive and the dry indoor heat during a Great Lakes winter has been brutal on my skin. The sensitivity was making it hard for me to find skincare products that worked and didn't make me feel like I needed to use a flame extinguisher(LOL the site won't let me use the word for flame!) on my face! I was in Ulta and saw this. The label says it uses ingredients that are time released. The deciding factor was the spf 30 sunscreen in it. When the snow melts, we will be out on our bikes again and I need sunscreen! Spf 30 is the minimum amount you should use and most creams are spf 20. Plus they feel funky on dry, sensitive skin. How does it work? Well, it is different. Not greasy and not conventionally "emollient" but it does make my skin look and feel better. It is softer and more pliable. I am starting to get wrinkly/crepey eyelids and I carefully put this on and let it absorb before applying primer/eyeshadow (besides all over my face). It has really helped! I quit wearing foundation and use tinted moisturizer or a BB cream and a cream blush. Conventional creams are too slick for the makeup to stay on, but the CeraVe reduces the wrinkles, give me sunscreen and doesn't cause the makeup to slide right off. At night a put it on and put a more emollient nightcream (budget friendly) over it for extra oomph. In the last couple of weeks, I have had 2 people come up and say that I looked younger and thinner! I will take that all day long! I have bought every kind of moisturizer-expensive, products from "parties", department stores and even used to use creamy petroleum jelly on my face and nothing has ever worked. I have even noticed that I look better and I am usually very critical. I know this review is long, but if you have gone through what seems like every cream out there and end up giving it away like I have, you want honest, detailed opinions. I hope this helps! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

Hey there! I’ve recently started used the Cerve Foaming Facial Cleanser for normal to oily skin and was wondering if anyone had a good moisturizer to pair with it? I have the oily-est skin ever, I wish I was joking. I usually have to blot my face twice a day, so I’m looking for something that might help reduce my oil rather than making it worse. Tia!

The CeraVe moisturizing lotion, is great for dry skin and other types of skin textures! It’s not super thick and not to mention it’s pretty cheap! You can pretty much find it at any drug store.☺️

I have really dry skin and I’ve been breaking out all over my cheeks and forehead and they leave dark spots/scars I can’t get rid of. I also have really sensitive skin and there’s eczema around the eyes and mouth area usually during the winter/spring time. Any recommendations for face washes, lotions and something to get rid of dark spots?

So this lotion is great, it’s dermatologist approved or actually prescribed by them. Great for sensitive and dry skin, not necessarily for dark spots but you can always add a serum to it. I’ve been experimenting with Bio oil for my scars and we have roughly the same skin type. Both of these can be found in a drug store, I particularly got mine at Target.

I have combination skin and I sometimes get really red. I use cerave SA cleanser and it actually helped my redness a lot but I still get pimples. Is there any other cleaners like this one but that is more tough on acne? #redness #combination #cerave

Anyone with acne-probe skin use this on their face? I like the Cerave PM moisturizer, but tired of spending so much on skincare products and then getting only like an ounce of product. I sometimes also get redness with the PM, and I want to see if this could be a substitute. Thanks in advance
