-Skin feels a "Little" wierd, kind of a warm feeling after use. Only lasts 1 minute.

I love this product. Sense i am on antibiotics for my acne I need an SPF moisturizer. My derm suggested I should take Doxycycline and a neutrogena 2.0% sacyclic acid and let me tell you it works wonders. This moisturizer works for less powerful cleaning utensils. and thats what it is ment for. Everyone that says this product is bad is using powerful products such as adapalene, Retin a and accutane. When i was on those things i used Cetaphil moisturizing cream and that worked for that. Use this if u need an SPF and a slightly good moisturizer that comes with it.

Light weight
Oil free
Protects you from the sun
*** I STRONGLY recommend using Marcelle face powder with this lotion! It's especially great for people with acne because it's hypo allergenic and won't clog your pores.PLUS it's translucent and WILL NOT make you look "cakey"


if you don't use powder after you apply this you may find your skin looks oily

I absolutely recommend this product to anyone with normal or oily skin! This is honestly the only lotion that has ever worked for me. I find most lotions either don't absorb into my skin and just look really oily and disgusting, or they make me break out. This one didn't do neither! If you have dry skin on the other hand, you might find this lotion not moisturizing enough for you. Aswell I don't understand why everyone is complaining about a burning feeling because I didn't feel any burning at all. ALSO THERE'S A COUPON INSIDE THE BOX THAT YOU CAN USE TOWARDS ANY CETAPHIL PRODUCT FOR 2$ OFF

- Keeps skin soft and moisturised all day
- SPF 15 (but doesn't leave you shiny)
- Oil- and fragrance-free
- Widely available
- Does not cause breakouts

I bought this on a whim as an alternative to Dan's moisturiser and I'm really glad I did. I have very dry, eczema-prone skin which becomes almost unmanageable during winter. For the past few years I've also become very prone to breakouts all over my face. I've tried many different moisturisers, low and high end, and the one's I've tried either felt heavy / greasy on my skin, left me shiny, or didn't keep me moisturised for more than a few hours. This moisturiser is the only one that keeps me moisturised, lasts all day, contains SPF, does not leave shine and is gentle on sensitive skin. Another benefit I did not expect was how soft it made my skin feel, which was surprising for a product with such a light consistency. I don't feel any burning or stinging when I apply it (maybe because your skin was very dry when you put it on?), and I've been using this daily for a month now. The moisturiser is very effective on its own, but when I have to be outside in the wind and snow for a long time I pat on a few drops of jojoba oil on top as an extra precaution. I recommend anyone with dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin to give this product a try. I really hope Cetaphil doesn't change the formula because this moisturiser is perfect as it is!

- light, non greasy, yet moisturizing
- fragrance free, with SPF
- calms redness, does not clog pores
- did not make T-zone oily
- good moisturizer for day & night


- none that i can think of

I've used this moisturizer from the age of 15 to now being 19. It is an amazing lotion/moisturizer, however when I did have moderately severe acne for a year and 4 months I had to alternate between this lotion and the daily facial moisturizer from spectro jel (for blemish prone skin). Also, several dermatologist have suggested that although the lotion comes with the spf of 15, it's best to put on a sunscreen with spf 25 and up on top of any moisturizer to prevent hyperpigmentation. But overall it's kept my face consistent in terms of having it moisturized and T-zone grease free! I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a good moisturizer.

-totally quenches my chronically dry skin
-doesn't dry or leave skin flakey
-first spf that DOESN'T stay white



My skin has been clear of acne for about four months (yay!) because of the acne.org regimen, but needs a lot of tlc with post-acne hyperpigmentation and chronic dryness. I tried dermalogica, olay, aveeno, eucerin, neutrogena, and acne.org moisturizers and moisturizers with spf: they either dried onto my flakes or left me with a big, stinky, white face. I FINALLY TRIED Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream, lotion, and moisturizer with spf. I love them to death and use them to quench and completely hydrate my flakey skin every morning and night. For the record, my regimen is: 1.Dermalogica Special Cleansing Gel 2.acne.org Treatment BP 2.5% 3. Morning: Cetaphil Daily Moisturizer Fragrance Free SPF 15; -Night: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for Dry, Sensitive Skin -Every-Other-Night: acne.org AHA

Totally love it!


For me, none.

I had skin cancer and used this after the surgery, which was on my face. Can barely see the scar and it seems to somewhat fade ageing spots...

Moisturizes very well for extra dry skin
Long-lasting coverage
Doesn't irritate


Slightly oily during initial application

As a male with very light, sporadic acne, I would definitely recommend this as a basic daily facial moisturizer for all-year usage. I've been a loyal customer of this brand/product for over 2 years & haven't found a reasonable or more effective substitute.

Moisturizes well

Good sunblock


Clogs pores

This product moisturizes your skin very well but it is very heavy and hard to wash off. If you have ACNE dont use this. if you just have skin it's pretty good.

-Great brand
-Doesn't clog pores
-Absorbs quickly
-Effective moisturizer
-SPF is great for day
-Frangrance free
-Soothes and hydrates my dry, sensitive skin


-SPF, so you can't use it at night
-No added fragrance, so it doesn't smell pleasant

I love this moisturizer! I use it every morning following the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. I have pretty sensitive skin, and most things make my face sting. This wonderful product actually doesn't sting at all, and I love it! I actually like the consistency much more than the moisturizer I use at night, the regular Cetaphil moisturizer. That seems more like a lotion and takes a while to absorb, but this absorbs quickly (but efficiently... my skin is still very well hydrated) like a good moisturizer should. I need higher SPF when the sun's really hot, but this is the perfect daytime moisturizer for me in the fall, winter, and early spring.
