Works for my dry skin
This product works for me, I tend to have very dry skin and during the winter I need a really thick moisturizer. I use this in the evening and in the morning I actually use Eucerin Dermo Purifyer instead, because the Cetaphil one feels a bit too thick to wear during daytime. But it's a simple product that does what it says it does.

- Light Weight
- Very Moisturizing
- SPF 15
- Doesn't Clog Pores
- Fragrance Free
- Helped Reduce Dry Patches on Skin
- It has a Pump


- None that I can think of

After having a bad experience with Eucerin Everyday Protection Face Lotion I decided to use this to help my dry face recover. I like this product a lot because it really moisturized my skin and helped reduce the dry patches on my face. It also has SPF which also helps with acne because it protects your skin from the sun which helps reduce hyperpigmantation and worsening of acne. It also didn't cause any acne as far as i could. It really was great for my sensitive dry skin.

Does it's job - moisturizes
Really is fragrance free


It congeals on the pump no matter how careful you are, which makes it this weird globby stuff blocking normal flow of lotion
Is very shiny on areas that tend to be oily for some reason

It is a decent moisturizer that does not clog my pores or irritate my skin; however it does make my nose which is naturally more oily than the rest of my face very very shiny, I mean extremely noticeably shiny. And I don't like using makeup much so that's a very big disappointment. Also like I said in the cons, it congeals when exposed to air and becomes this sticky glob of lotion that feels gross and blocks the pump until you take it off. The SPF feature is excellent though. It's worth a try.

- great moisturizer
- plumps up skin and gives skin a nice tone


- the taste ( if you get it on your lips by accident) ugggh!

I'm fairly new to moisturizers, never thought my oily skin needed a drink... but you don't water a plant with oil ! I've seen good results, but my skin is also 30 years old... maybe I wouldn't have reacted so well in my younger years. But I like this product.

-It doesn't require a huge amount to do its job
-Works well to prevent flaky skin from my BP and BHA regimen.
-I can use it on top of my BP mask before I go to sleep to keep skin hydrated
-It has sunscreen to prevent acne caused by the sun.


-Smells chemical (as others have stated)
-A little greasy if used too much. I usually put it on my face, wait for it to absorb deep into the skin, and then take a light, damp towel to pat away the oily top layer.
- Makes skin shiny sometimes, but this can be remedied with some water some soft cloth (towel, sweater, etc...)

It works well at preventing my irritation, flakiness, and sandpaper texture caused by BP. It has a slight smell, but I usually forget about it, and it is overpowered by other smells such as my shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc... It's a good buy that will not clog pores, and helps to keep skin look healthy. Well for me at least, try other moisturisers to see what works for you.

-moisturizes/hydrates very well

-good moisturizer to use when you're using products with benzoyl peroxide in them

-lightweight, so it's good for wearing under foundation

-not very expensive compared to many other moisturizers that lack the same benefits


-does have a slightly chemical smell that lingers

Overall, I'd definitely recommend this for hydrating skin that is being treated with benzoyl peroxide and other acne medications. It is a great solution for dealing with flaky skin that results from these drying products!

spf 15, not a bad smell


burned and irritated my skin--especially the eye area.

i put up with the burning for a while, but there came a point that i just couldn't take it anymore and stopped using it.
