Dry Skin - Cerave or Complex 15 Moisturizing Cream?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

My skin has been getting some small breakouts due to my dry and sometimes flaky skin. I suspect its because of winter and also because of the highly chlorinated tap water (going to install a filter). Anyway, based on my research it seems like Cerave and Complex 15 creams have rave reviews.

I am curious which one is more suited for dry / flaky skin.

i use complex 15 lotion, but it doesn't do much for flakes. i haven't tried complex 15 cream, but i suspect that it alleviates flakes only slightly better than the lotion.

cetaphil cream is great for flakes. i suspect the same is true for eucerin cream, although i haven't tried it.

Complex 15 was pretty comedogenic for me, hopefully it works for you. But if you use it and see that acne is getting worse, it may be a contributor, just keep watch.

i use complex 15 in the morning and cetaphil cream at night and i think that works pretty well for flakes. Cerave was a good lotion too but i dont think it was any better than complex 15
