Not a Good Emergency Cream
Reviewed on August 16, 2015

I bought this product in the hopes that my severely dry & flaky skin would be completely moisturized. I had to go to a wedding reception, which requires opening your mouth both to socialize & eat. If your skin is severely dry, opening your mouth will cause the skin around it to peel, which is embarrassing. I used a generous amount of this product: I didn't skimp at all! Even once it has absorbed, my skin still felt considerably "tight."

I should also mention that this cream turns large areas of flakes white! My entire upper lip area & the top half of my chin appeared to have greasy, white flakes! The rest of my skin looked OK, though. Just moderately oily.

This product wasn't difficult to smear across my skin gently. I was convinced that I had to "push" the product so that I could apply it: this is not the case. I put the product on the tips of my fingers, dabbed it on my face, and spread it around as I do w/ regular lotion. Not a big deal.

You can use this during the daytime! I recommend finding an amount that works for you. Once you find that amount, apply only half that amount to your entire face; allow it to absorb, and then apply the other half. It turns out that products will absorb much better into the skin when applied like this. Not only that but it won't look as greasy. At night you can use the full amount in just one application. It slightly stung my skin. Nothing really noticeable.

This product may yield better results if used regularly. I used it only once as of writing this review. Prior to using it my skin had purged itself of the dryness that AHA causes @ first. So not only was my skin already dry from using BP twice/day but also from using AHA once/day for like five days. I just wanted something that would make my skin look supple for the wedding I had to attend. I should also mention that any moisturizer will perform better if your skin is already hydrated by drinking water. Don't rely just on moisturizer. It is especially important to be hydrated while sleeping b/c this is when the body heals itself.

As I mentioned, I used this product only once. Obviously I haven't experienced a breakout. It can take up to 3 weeks for that to happen after introducing a new product. However, it contains no potentially comedogenic ingredients, so I'm confident that it won't clog my pores. I don't recommend this product as a fix for extremely flaky skin for first time use, but I'll update this after I've been using it continually.

Like Body Butter
Reviewed on August 12, 2015

The texture of this product reminds me of a slightly fluffier body butter from The Body Shop. But, it's without all the scents and irritants and is completely non-comedogenic. I use this moisturizer as a body lotion. A little goes a long way and the tub it comes in is gigantic, so it will last a very long time. Only use this on your face if it is extremely dry, or if you are using it to spot treat on extremely dry areas, like around your nose.

Using cetaphil moisturizer after apply BP
Reviewed on August 6, 2015

Hello! I'm new to the Regimen and have just begun using benzoyl peroxide this week. After washing my face at night, i allow my skin to dry, then apply benzoyl peroxide. After about 15 min, I use Cetaphil moisturizing cream. I expect my dry skin to feel relieved from the cream, but gradually the burning and itching sensation increases. It is really difficult not to rub or scratch my skin when this happens.

Is this normal or is there something wrong with the cetaphil cream? I was wondering if maybe it reacted with the BP

Does a good job of moisturizing

I used this product when I was on epiduo it helped moisturize my skin since it got so dry for the epiduo. Its a great product love it.

Very moisturising
Reviewed on January 31, 2015

This moisturiser is very thick and yes it will take some time to get used to. I would recommend this to everyone to try since there isn't any ingredients that are unhealthy for your skin. It is a very simple moisturiser and is especially good when you have a very dry skin.

Fantastic if applied correctly
Reviewed on October 29, 2014

Compared to the Regimen's moisturizer, this one provided better results. That being said, the Cetaphil cream will take some time getting used to. Because the product is extremely thick, you will have to carefully apply in small dosages around the face, perhaps even using a paper towel to clean any residue. Once everything has been applied properly, you will most likely not have to worry about dryness or flakes. In fact, I never feel the need to apply more than once a day. If you are one who is looking to completely eradicate flakes, give this product a try.

Worst than poison
Reviewed on August 23, 2014

Last week my skin started to get irritated, red, itchy, and I could not figure out what is cause it, I used this moisturizing cream for 4 months, but a week ago it turned evil on me.

I suffered a lot of pain until I figured out it was Cetaphil, my skin was falling apart.

I'm never buying anything from Cetahil again.

Very very oily look
Reviewed on April 8, 2014

I would recommend this product for some one who has flaky or dry skin and the usage for winter and fall climates because when the weather becomes hot this moisturizer might clog pores, due to the cetaphil,sweat and oil from your face.This product moisturized my face very well! but i look very greasy so i think ima use this only at night only.

HERE'S A TIP !:) when applying the cream to your face dont rub it in, lightly pat the cream on so that it will blend in well and your face will look less oily.

Caused major irritation
Reviewed on February 18, 2014

After Accutane treatment, I tried this several times. Every time I used it for a week, my skin would get red and irritated, and small red bumps would appear on my face. I would get annoyed, thinking the Accutane had failed. Then I would stop the Cetaphil and my skin would clear up. But then my skin would get dry again and I reached for the Cetaphil. Finally I stopped using Cetaphil completely, and my skin is now completely clear. Some ingredient in this just did not agree with my skin, and I won't use it again.
