Superficial Moisturizer
Reviewed on June 29, 2015

For me Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is a superficial moisturizer, which means it doesn't penetrate deeply into the skin. It feels as though this lotion just "sits" on top of my skin and doesn't absorb. It completely takes care of flakiness, but that's about it. It doesn't really moisturize. Using a generous amount of this product causes my skin to look greasy and feel "heavy." One person claimed that it made her skin feel "dewy," which is a good thing, but she wasn't on the regimen and thus didn't use a generous amount. The Acne.org regimen requires a lot of moisturizer (usually about 4 milliliters) unless you're using a really good one, such as CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion.

So far, it works for me. It moisturise very well, not as much as Cerave, but it does not cause acne.

Too greasy/broke out easily
Reviewed on June 14, 2015

Type: mild acne/acne prone skin/ summer: oily/ winter: dry)

I used it as a face moisterizer. Better to use on your body than face.

Pros: *hydrates skin

Cons: *makes face feels greasy and oily

*Made me broke out after a few uses

Not for people with really oily skin. People with oily skin should not use moisterizers with oil in them such as this one ((this prouct uses Macadamia Ternifolia (Nut) Oil)). Water based or oil free moisterizers work best for oily skin type. Maybe good for people with dry skin.

Broke me out
Reviewed on December 30, 2014

Seemed alright for the first few days but after 3-5 days (how long it usually takes me to start seeing breakouts from an irritant) I broke out badly on my chin and cheek. Very disappointing as there is a very limited choice of decent moisturisers in Ireland...no CeraVe (which I was using before with no issue) as [link removed] won't even ship it here. I'm usually not super sensitive to products that claim to be non-comedogenic so this surprised me but I can't deny that it's the only thing I've changed in my routine. Don't know what else there really is to try, most moisturisers here are either for ageing skins and too rich or for teens and contain salycitic acid which drys me out too much. Any recs for a good moisturiser available in Ireland for combo skin treated with Retin-A would be great! If you are deciding between Cetaphil and CeraVe for any product I've found CeraVe to have much higher quality ingredients, lots of stuff that's in high-end creams, Cetaphil is kind of the low-rent version.

Pretty good

Although it is supposed to be used on your body, I use it on my face and have not noticed any breakouts out of the ordinary. i put quite a bit of this product on my face before applying my makeup and it doesn't feel heavy, it actually creates a great banner between my skin and makeup and prevents it from getting cakey. I recommend it to anyone who lives in cold climates ( such as me, Canada ) and wants to protect their skin from harsh winds and temperatures without using comedogenic products like petroleum jelly.

don’t really understand the poor reviews on here, if you do have acne and oily skin don’t use it as it has oil in it (everything that moisturizes has) and other moisturizing ingredients .

My skin is acne prone but not bad and I use products that dry out my skin but use cetaphil at night which works great. Use only a small amount on your skin and don’t use this all the time.

It always worked great for me even though my skin is very sensitive and used to have bad acne. Anything that has oil in it would not help to prevent acne!!!

I use Dr Murad and skin neuteurals who work great.

Skin did not like it.

Was very irritating and made my skin turn red in places. No thanks.

Didn't work for me

If you have dry skin then this product could work for you. I have extremely oily skin and this product did not control it what so ever in fact I felt it made my oily skin worse. The more oil my skin produces the more acne I get so after months of using this product my face was filled with acne. If you have extremely oily skin like me PLEASE stay away from this product. I find the only thing that works for me is a mattifying moisturizer.

If this is the only thing people with sensitive skin and acne are supposed to use, I'd rather go without moisture. It looks terrible under makeup. It sits on top of your skin, softening nothing, soothing nothing.

and yes, my comedones multiplied. quit after two uses, so terrible in texture.
Reviewed on January 5, 2014

i always use this product ever since i was little. would i recommend it? YES. Would i recommend it when on Dan's regimen? NO. It burns like hell afterwards! And if you have dry scaly reptile like skin, this is absolute HELL. Do not even try. I tried, several times, and just ended up crying and fanning myself because it would cause me such great pain. However, if you are not on the regimen and need a light body lotion/face lotion this is fantastic! I thought it would be fantastic on the Regimen but it was extremely bad and i completely regret it. As I say that, i do want to put out that i do have sensitive skin which is probably why. Anyways, I hope this helps!!

Meant for CeraVe...Not for Cetaphil. Cetaphil is great, do not mistake this!
