CeraVe – Moisturizing Cream Review

CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($14.99)

Ultra thick and creamy, this Moisturizing Cream is designed to help with the driest, cracked and chapped skin. It includes ceramides, glycerin, water, etc. to help fatty acid esters get deep into the skin. The product claims that you can moisturize once, and you will find yourself moisturized all day. Believe it! This is a great heavy cream for dry spots, cracked elbows, and the like, especially in the winter months. It is a little thick for everyday use for my personal skin, but I know others suffer dry skin year-round (like my sister!), so this is a fab product find for her. You get a 16 ounce tub of this moisturizer for a good price.

You can find CeraVe products at your local drugstore!

Have you tried this cream? Thoughts?

I’ve used it, I have EXTREAMLY dry skin and i find that Nivea cream (in the Blue jar) is thicker and works better this is more like the Nivea cream (in the White jar), a little less thick. I will not buy this prodecut again

Thanks for the heads up, Amanda! it’s too bad this didn’t work out for you – was it a significant difference or just a minor one?

I think Cera Ve is a wonderful product and have recommended it to several people.
Since I have been using it as a facial moisturizer, I have had no problems with my face.

I have eczema, and my dermatologist actually recommended me CeraVe’s line of moisturizers. It works great on my skin, so it must work wonders for those who have only slightly dry skin.
