New formula burns my face everytime

I have been using the moisturizer for 8 years. The new white version stings my face everytime now. If its not broke dont fix it. Or make an alernative  moistuizer, but dont replace the good one guy....

Looking for old formula

Like so many here, I have had a terrible time with new formula.   It actually causes any breakout to get much much worse.  I still have some of the old yellow formula and I’ve tested them against each other.  The yellow formula actually gets rid of my breakouts even without the benzo peroxide it seems. I understand that only one ingredient changed, but my experience just isn’t lining up with that. :/

New formulae causes dermatitis!!!

The only thing I have changed in my skincare routine is this new moisturiser and ever since I have, there has been a string of dermatitis on my face which I could figure out why! But now i have! Causes really bad dermatitis around eyes, on cheeks and on neck! Dan this is a very bad formulation! Been a customer for several years and will not be this ordering again

New formula sucks

Stared the regimen back in April, had a bit of a rough start (very dry and sensitive skin) but after 8 weeks or so skin was looking much better. Had a lot of trouble with flakes (only using BP once a day and not much) but got flakiness under control with the help of AHA and jojoba. Have tried other famous brands moisturizers and none of them were good for my skin. But this moisturizer was perfect. In August as usual I ordered my new moisturizer and as soon as I pumped some to my hand I knew this one's different. It smelled really weird (subtle alcohol like, but don't really care about the smell as long as it works) but the texture was very different. New one feels kinda thick, milky in a way. Unfortunately it doesn't fully absorb into my skin, and once again skin is very flaky. 

I really don't know why they had to change the formula but the new one is really bad, would give 0 stars if I could.

Sadly can't use CeraVe's moisturizer since it doesn't mix well with BP...

I wish I could rate this with no stars. I am not happy about this change. My skin feels so oily and greasy like it can’t breathe. And my skin is starting to breakout as well with this new change. I have been using these products since 2012 and it has the only thing that has cleared my acne. Please go back to the other formula. Having changed some of the ingredients because the color was yellow is absolutely ridiculous. Now because others complained about the color of the product others have to suffer with breakouts because the formula isn’t the same. This product changed my life and the thought that my skin is going back to what it used to look like is devastating. Is the color really worth letting down your customers that depend on this product to have clear skin?!!!!!

New moisturizer

I don’t know exactly what the difference is but I woke up in the morning after putting it on and I had a huge red patch under my eye, my whole face felt very dry, both eyes were puffy underneath to the point when leaned over I could actually see the bags underneath my eyes.  I never had anything happen like that with the yellow version. I may try it on my arm or a different spot to see what happens.

Dark yellow formula was the best

I have been using these products for 10 years now and they are fabulous. Honestly nothing has compared. However the moisture seems to have got lighter and lighter over the years. The newest version is now fully white. I’m not keen on it, it feels clammy and I have started to breakout, which maybe be hormonal, but to be honest they look more like irritation spots, as they are more rash like. The yellow moisturiser went on like butter and gave my skin a subtle glow, which I rather liked. I agree with some of the others here. Why fix something that was not broken in the first place? Anyway I will continue to use the current one and just hope my face adjusts. However I do hope they eventually decide to bring the old formula back.

Hi, I just wanted to say that I’ve been using the Cerve hydrating cleanser and benzoyl and the moisturizer for about 4 or 5 years and Ive been loving it I didn’t mind the yellow formula I actually love it until they change it to the white moisturizer. The new white moisturizer feels thick, milky and cakey on my skin and burns but then goes away plus in the morning when I wake up I run my hand gently around my face and it flakes the moisturizer off my face or I don’t know maybe dry skin but I think it’s the moisturizer because it’s white flakes and skin feels a lot more dry than before. Another thing that I developed on my face is a itchy inflamed dry patch on my right cheek.

I’m really disappointed with the new white moisturizer! Please bring back the yellow formula moisturizer!

The change in the formula of the moisturizer was a great choice. No more yellow tone on my skin. The new one blends in perfectly on my skin. Keep up the good work. All your products are great.

Loving the new formula!

Thanks Dan for changing the formula.  I am loving this one.  Not sticky and thick as the old formula.  I will continue to subscribe with the treatment and glycolic acid lotion along with this.  Great job!
