I finally found a store over here in my country that sells Cerave. I've heard such good things about it from people on the boards and was wondering it anyone has used it as their Regimen moisturizer.

 

I use Cetaphil lotion as my night time moisturizer and I am really happy with it because it does such a great job. I use my Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel for the AM and it can be expensive because it comes in such a tiny bottle. So I'm trying to look for an alternative for those broke days. Haha.

 

Was wondering if Cerave is an ideal AM moisturizer. Lightweight, not greasy looking, absorbs quickly to the skin, no fragrance and good for tropical and humid weather.

 

Oh and do you guys use the Lotion or the Cream formulation?


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion + Neutrogena Moisture with SPF 15 + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Evening Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser
- BENZOYL PEROXIDE : 1 pump of The Acne.org 2.5%
- MOISTURIZER: Cetaphil Moilturizing Cream + Acne.org AHA + 5-6 drops of Acne.org Jojoba Oil
 
Extras:
- Concealer: MAC Studio Finish Concealer in C25 (for redness)
- Pressed Powder: MAC Select Sheer in NC20 (for mattefying)
- Foundation: Revlon Colorstay for Oily/Combination Skin in Buff (for even skin tone)
- Scrub: St. Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control (twice a week in the AM)
- Medication: Diane 35
                     Meftormin 500mg (for PCOS)
- Supplements: Vitamin D3 (1000UI/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
                         Zinc (50mg/day) --- Started 5/16/2013
 
And this is all done as gently as possible. smile.png

Personally, I hated CeraVe... It just didn't work for me.. Didn't do enough to combat the dryness from BP, but then again, I am older, so my skin needs more moisture... Everyone is different, so you may just have to try it out for a while and see if it works well for you... Good luck! :)

Yup, I do want to try it. Cetaphil gives me more than enough moisture at night, it is just in the day time where I am looking for a good light weight moisturizer. Similar to my Clinique moisturizer but a lot cheaper.

 

I was thinking that maybe it could work because I do live in a pretty humid climate and my skin doesn't really get dry.

Give it a go.  There is always such polar opinions about any moisturiser that its hard to judge what is good and what isnt.  I personally didnt like it, and feel the same as NYCQueen that it didnt moisturise enough, but Im much MUCH older than you wink.png


After remaining clear for around 1.5 years following DKR (The Regimen), in March 2013 I decided to change to Epiduo.  I use a pea size amount of epiduo each night, followed by a layer of topical antibiotic (Eryacne). I also apply Eryacne every morning and moisturise twice a day. After switching to Epiduo from the regimen I found that it took a good 3 months to get back to being perfectly clear again and now I might get one small pimple appear per month.  I can live with that smile.png

I started following Dan's Regimen in September 2011 after suffering with acne for 20 years or so. I followed the Regimen instructions exactly and became 100% clear within 9-11 weeks. In December 2011 and after being consistently clear for over a month, I started to slowly reduce the amount of BP I used until I was only applying BP at night. My skin still remained clear however I sometimes switched to applying BP twice a day for a few days (perhaps once a month) if I felt a few under skin bumps starting to come up. I used acne.org products (including AHA and jojoba oil) and sometimes cetaphil moisturiser at night if I felt my skin was especially dry.  In the gallery I show my week by week progress following the regimen.

I've been using  the CeraVe moisturizing lotion for almost a week now and I love this stuff. I've only used it as an AM moisturizer and it has worked really well for me. Not greasy looking, absorbs fasts, non-comedogenic, fragrance-free, it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and best of all it hasn't broken me out.

Also, it is waaay cheaper than my Clinique gel moisturizer. I still love that stuff, but being on the regimen and using a bigger amount of it can get expensive. Glad I found another cheaper product that works as well, if not maybe better than the Clinique.

 

I still use my Cetaphil moisturizing lotion as my PM moisturizer because I do feel it does a better job at moisturizing the skin. The greasy look you get on your face is basically the main reason I don't use it as an AM moisturizer. 


Morning Routine:
- CLEANSER: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser/Acne.org Cleanser

It was okay. I had the Cream and it did leave my face greasy looking after a while. Applying it at first made my skin matte though. But I do have oily skin so maybe that was why it looked greasy. Also, the cream is really thick, which forced my to rub my face or else it left white streaks. It didn't absorb well initially. If you decide to go with it, get the lotion.

I am using the lotion and it is great! Living where I live and having really oily skin, I feel that it moisturizes my skin without giving me the greasy look. Also, I didn't have the streaking problem with the lotion.

I love love love the cream and their face wash the foaming one! I love that whole product line. But id be beyond livid if I could have my face cream. The stuff is like a dream. No streaks it soaks into the skin very fast and moisturized great. Don't be scared to try the cream, if you love the lotion I think your love the cream too. I can't live without it. I mix my AHA in with it too every night and I'm as smooth as a baby's butt and no shine on me. I love it
Regimen:
AM: CeraVe foaming face wash, 100mg Spirolactone
PM: CeraVe foaming face wash, witch hazel, Acne.org AHA+
Been taking Sprio since 1/2013

I've no idea but i'll try to look for these "stalls" once I get a free time on my schedule. I live in Manila, so i'm pretty much surrounded by big malls. Thanks.

 

Is Cerave good for oily skin too? I hope it doesn't make me breakout. :)

I have really oily skin and I love it. One pump is enough to make my skin feel moisturized by not oily. I do however use blotting papers maybe twice a day.
