To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
There is definitely something wrong with the quality of this product. Different formula? I don’t know. I’ve bought Cerave products for years even before everyone discovered how great they were too. This is different. The lotion is thinner and almost “flimsy” in quality like a knock off product you get from relatives who went abroad and brought back too good to be true gifts. There is very little moisturized feel, essentially just the wetness of initial application. I have had bad dry skin flaking and peeling hours after using the product. My arms around the elbows, sides of calves, knees, and outer thighs. I have NEVER had this issue with any of the Cerave products I have purchased since around 2012. I do not recommend this product.
Ok maybe I was expecting too much from this lotion. But I based it on reviews, videos, and comparisons of like products.
It's no different than ANY other lotion name brand or not. It's not long lasting, feels thin and watery when going on. The unscented is definitely unscented if that's a selling point for you. But I was hoping it to be more moisturizing and longer lasting than just an hour or so after applying.
it didn't work for my child's eczema. We have tried 28 different creams and was told by the dermatologist and MANY groups that this one is the most sensitive. We tried it this week even though we thought he had an outbreak from it last year. It broke out his skin so badly that we could hardly even wash him in the bathtub. I'm not sure what is in this, but it's one of the worst breakouts we have seen.
i was really hoping this would be The Product for my skin, face and body. since its recced by so many dermatologists and consumers, i thought it would be perfect for my dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin. the only thing i appreciate about it now having used it is that theres no scent or sticky feeling. it provided almost no moisture to my dry face and caused me to break out with acne and after several uses started making my skin red and burned. my face is so sensitive that i figured even it doesnt work for that, at least i could use it on my body. now my upper arms are breaking out in eczema. i wish id bought the trial size instead of this one, i’ll be giving it to someone else and hope they have better luck
First time when I buy CeraVe, looks like the last time too. Full of Parabens! I always read the labels but this time I trusted my friend’s recommendation. Let’s say I can get the fact that the recipient came dirty and looks like it’s been used. Add some scent, like piss and vomit mixed together. No wonder had a rash after using it, which makes me wish to give minus 5 stars. CeraVe, never again!
