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.
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
I normally have a dry skin. I use this moisturizer on my face. It does feels so good when you apply. But, it doesn’t suit my skin. May be you can try it and depend on your skin, it might work. My sister loved this product and recommended me, but, I think it is not just for me.
I purchased this to use on my toddlers. I wish it was alittle thicker in consistency. It's too watery for me. I feel like it's not moisturizing enough because it's watery. I've use other Cera Ve products in the past but this one I won't be purchasing again.
I used to use Cetaphil intense moisture cream for my perpetually dry skin. It stopped working quite as well for me, so I switched to this, hoping for better results. I have to slather it on twice for the same effect as the Cetaphil. Not worth the $18 I paid for the 19 oz. Now I wish I’d shelled out more for a pricier, higher quality option. As another user mentioned, it could be that the larger size is watered down more. Others have given good reviews for the 12 oz, so if you really want it, go for that option.
To be considered a "lotion for dry skin" it wasn't at all moisturizing. It left my skin feeling and looking very dry, (especially during the winter months) more than other 'normal' lotions like Jergens. Vaseline lotion (not the cream or petroleum jelly) and Aveeno lotion for dry skin have also worked better for me but I was really rooting for this one because of the ceramides and hyaluronic acid. For now I've gone back to what works.
