Top Reviews



no irritation, no greasy residue

- Target User

this lotion soothed his skin, and caused no irritation whatsoever

- Ulta 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 product lives up to its claim of being lightweight

- Cerave User


good for acne

it looks young and fresh and the hormonal breakout i was having on my jawline was healed and fading overnight the first time i used it

- Target User

first of all, i've struggled with acne for 6+ years (i'm 24) and after using countless products and trying all kinds of restrictive diets and supplements, i finally just settled on letting my skin heal

- Target User



the cerave moisturizing cream feels so good on your skin , it feels as if your skin just soaks it up and radiates with soft supple moisture

- Cerave User

i started using cerave moisturizing cream and like magic my hands are soft and look amazing

- Cerave User


redness relief

after application my hands were not sticky and it started repairing super dry, red , sore hands by one day of using it

- Cerave User

it goes on, makes my dry skin moister, plumper and reduces the "thin skin" syndrome that many of us older dudes suffer from

HOLY GRAIL Moisturizer. Life Saver.

My dermatologist recommended CeraVe to me years ago and I haven't used anything else since. I use it twice a day after cleansing and applying an acne cream and it has absolutely saved my skin. I live in the desert, where wimpy moisturizers go to die, so for a dermatologist here to recommend this means something. It is lightweight, but powerful and I use it anywhere on my body I want to keep the skin smooth and hydrated. Only downside is that it doesn't have a sunscreen, but I mix some of that in and it still works fine. Would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend for anyone with problem skin (i.e. acne, eczema, rosacea, dry skin, sensitive skin, oily skin) because it is fragrance free, won't clog pores, and most importantly, moisturizes like no other.

Works fantastically for my oily-turned-combination skin!

I've been using Tretinoin cream to aid with some acne/acne scarring. For those who are unfamiliar, it does cause severely dry skin which was a first for me since I had been struggling with oily skin for the last 13 years. My jaw/chin area would be so dry that it hurt to even smile. I was waiting to finish up a bottle of Boots brand moisturizer(that didn't help much) I had laying around the house before giving CeraVe a try and boy, will I never go back! I use the Daily Moisturizing Lotion in combination with the PM Moisturizer and they've done wonders for my skin! They absorb well and don't leave me feeling greasy even when applied underneath my sunscreen.

take this from a real teenage girl who has been dealing with rosacea and extremely dry skin, that this is the best moisturizer i’ve EVER used. every face moisturizer or body lotion that IVE EVER USED has made my skin feel tingly, and has either left my face feeling sticky or has felt way too thick and greasy. I HAVE SKIN THAT IS DRIER THAN THE SAHARA DESERT and this genuinely makes it feel SO SOFT ALL. DAY. LONG. the first time after i used it i touched my face a few hours later and i still felt it on my skin but it was so smooth and it felt like i had just put it on. when they say “all day releasing” they really mean it. I use this on both my face & body and i’ve never been so in love with a skin care product in my life. i’m obsessed. I have very sensitive skin on my face and especially the back of my hands. i had lots of irritation just now on my hand, and it is the first lotion that has EVER in my life ACTUALLY CALMED MY SKIN. I CANNOT BELIEVE IT. THE REDNESS AND IRRITATION WENT DOWN. i will never use another lotion again.I rarely write reviews but wow, this is the best product i’ve ever used. Less

My GoTo Moisturizer‼ Swear by it‼❤

At first I thought what's all the hype with CeraVe... Tons of youtubers I follow love this and the face wash. I thought well its not going to do much for me I break-out and have acne with combo/oily skin (which is the worst) ... Nothing I hate more than taking the time out to do my make-up and it only last 3-4 hours because by the end of day my face would be super shiny and oily. I also have really dry dry skin on my legs. It works guys! I'm telling you it is very light weight and overtime it really helps clear my skin and my skin no longer eats up the makeup I apply. It's had cleared up my dry skin areas on my legs. This is a product I just ran out of after using it daily since March. Definitely in my empties collection to repurchase this again!

not recommended!

This product is not good for oily skin. even for dry skin which my boyfriend has, it leaves a sticky layer on your skin and doesn't really sink in. not a fan, but it does depend on your skin type. makes a film that doesn't go away.

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
