Love this cream and packaging! It's so rare to be able to find a rich cream in a tub, so that you can get every bit of the product!
Great for sensitive skin and for the whole family, i use this on my kids who have sensitive and eczema prone skin, and my husband loves it too! A staple in our house!
Love Cetaphil!! I'm a swimming instructor so I get really dry skin and I get eczema in the winter, but this cream nourishes my skin and leaves me feeling moisturised. It helps manage eczema outbreaks and it's thick enough to to soothe my skin after hours in the pool. It doesn't smell strongly and absorbs fairly quickly, I warm it up in my hands first but spreads nicely. I definitely recommend this cream, particularly for those with sensitive/dry skin.
This whole product range saved me so much money, I would recommend to anyone with skin issues to stick with the cetaphil range. This moisturiser is perfect for everything, from your face to your toes it leaves the skin feeling fresh but not oily. I struggled with pimples and ithy skin for years and when I finally discovered this product the positive effects were almost instant. This product shows that in regards to skin care that simplicity is key and with a product that is fragrance free and purely focuses on hydrating and soothing the skin this is an essential for all skin types.
I love this, however I'm giving it a 4 out of 5 because of both the tub packaging (not the most hygienic) and the lack of any amazing ingredients. For a soothing, gentle, richly hydrating moisturiser, this is the best value and a little goes a long way! Great for sensitive and dry skin, I always have some in the cupboard! Makes my skin feel soft, plump and hydrated.
I absolutely love this product as it doesn't contain anything that affects my medication or allergies. I love the big tub of 550g because I totally enjoy plowing my washed fingers into the cream.
The cream itself is fragrance free and great for dry and sensitive skin. I suffer so much from dry legs and arms and I've never had a product that does such glorious results.
I tend to use every morning especially on my legs, arms and elbows. I do suffer terribly with dry elbows but since using Cetaphil, I no longer have that problem. The white cream feels thick but once blending into your skin area, it thins out and feels beautiful on. You can feel the difference to your skin straight away and no stickiness or greasey feelings at all.
Having the tub lasts me a lot longer and the price is affordable to anyone to be used on a daily basis.
The pharmacist recommended this to me for mild eczema and it worked wonders. The only downside is the tub shape it doesn't seem practical or ergonomic to me.
When I was prescribed to get on anti-acne medication Roaccutane, I was recommended by my derm to switch to a more simple skincare routine as the med would make my skin sensitive and severely dry. I decided to buy a tub of the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream because of its simple, basic ingredients and the fact that it didn't seem to have any fragrance. The cream comes in a massive tub with a screw-on lid and while it may not sound like the most stable of packagings, rest assured that the moisturising cream will remain fresh, and hydrating till the last scoop of product.
The cream is thick with an opaque white colour and creamy texture. It has no fragrance which was such a relief because fragrance would have further irritated my skin while on Roaccutane. The cream has a no fragrance fragrance, like a clean, crisp scent - if you know what I mean. I slather on this cream after my serum and treatment products have had time to absorb and sink in to my skin. The cream spreads easily and sinks into my skin instantly. It does tend to feel a bit oily but I like that especially when my skin could not produce its own oils while on Roaccutane. My skin instantly feels hydrated after I apply this cream and it stays hydrated overnight. In the morning my skin feels soft, supple and most importantly, still hydrated.
I hear people complaining about getting horrible flaky, peeling skin on Roaccutane but I never had this issue while on Roaccutane because I slathered on Cetaphil Moisturising Cream from head to toe while my skin was still damp. I never suffered from peeling skin on Roaccutane and I never had to exfoliate my skin while on Roaccutane because this moisturising cream is THAT good.
Post Roaccutane, I still use Cetaphil for moisturising my skin post shower. I do switch to a more lightweight moisturiser during the day in the hot summer months but still use Cetaphil in the the winter months. It is the last thing to go on my skin after my serums and treatment products, and it hydrates and acts as a barrier from the harsh, drying wintry weather.
This is a basic moisturising cream that can be layered over skin actives to seal in and act as a barrier for dry skin. At $14, its an affordable product for the face and body and it doesn't let me down. There is not irritation, redness or reaction from using this product and the product stays fresh till the last scoop. I have repurchased this product several times and highly recommend it to others who suffer from dry skin like me, or are on prescription retinoids which can dry out skin.
Minimizes flaking or peeling of the skin
No skin reaction
Fantastic for entire family
Lacks skin actives making this a basic hydrating cream
All people should appreciate a bit of Cetaphil but only those with very sensitive and reactive skin know how amazing it is. I wouldn't call it an every day cream or an anti-aging moisturiser. In my opinion this is a special agent cream to treat the skin while it is at its most vulnerable times ( peels, retinoids, drying weather). It soothes, calms the redness down, it doesn't cause that burning sensation ( if you've been on retinoids and tried hydrating your skin using your regular moisturiser - nope, you regretted the moment that idea came to your mind). Cetaphil creates a healing cocoon over the skin so it can recover and renew itself. Dry patches disappear, the skin feels safe and hydrated. It can be also used underneath make up which is a bonus. The packaging is huge so it is definitely value for money, it can be also used on the body, does a great job as an after sun lotion. To sum it up - it is a hero product for those who seek a fast and lasting comfort.
I started using Cetaphil Moisturising Cream on the recommendation of my work colleague six months ago. Prior to using this wonderful product, my skin had always felt really dry and at times sensitive, susceptible to itching and occasional flare-ups. Since using Cetaphil, I've noticed a huge difference in how my skin looks and feels. Cetaphil Moisturising Cream has brought much needed relief to my everyday skin treatment. It is thick and absorbs really well and very fast, and is very gentle and soothing to my skin. Best of all, it is non greasy and doesn't smell at all. It moisturises my skin exceptionally well without causing any irritation or discomfort that other brands do. The dryness and itchiness that I often experience during winter gradually stopped about a week of daily usage. The other benefit for me is that this product is very convenient to carry in my bag, or store inside my drawer at work, so that I can have it handy anytime, at work or at the gym.
Cetaphil Moisturising Cream is affordable and offers great value for money as an everyday skin treatment for dry, sensitive skin. It is a brand I can truly trust. Though I can't replace the skin condition that I'm born with, I can certainly manage it CETAPHILosophically and make a difference to how I feel everyday!
