My write-up on Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion

I have used this lotion after trying and using up Cetaphil baby lotion and moisturizing cream. This product is recommended by dermatologists for sensitive, irritated skin. It is quite thick and would suit dry facial skin better, however it can likewise be applied to the body.

It is incredible for the times when you are suffering from dry, flaky, or irritated skin, however not all that good if your skin leans towards the oily spectrum. It’s better for night time, as it’s something that can be layered easily under makeup products, particularly since you’d need another sun protection product as it doesn’t contain SPF.

This makes the skin soft and gets absorbed very easily and quickly into the skin. It does not make the skin greasy or oily throughout the day. It doesn’t make the skin sticky as some of the moisturizers do that to the skin.

It has helped me a lot to moisturize my oily skin and also get rid of acne marks. It’s a bit oily and comes with no or little fragrance. For winters it’s the best moisturizer, doesn’t irritate your skin, no need to reapply, and provides ample moisturization and hydration.

It is so gentle, no added fragrance, not harsh at all, leaves your skin feeling so fresh and moisturized. It feels soft smooth and gives instead nourishment. Also, my skin is glowing after applying it.

Packaging:

The bigger bottle comes with a pump while the smaller bottles come with a flip cap. I prefer to buy a smaller bottle for ease of travel.

Texture:

It is a thick white cream-like consistency. You need less than a pea-sized amount to thoroughly moisturize your whole face. So if you are using it just for your face it will last for months.

Smell: No fragrance but that mild scent of chemicals that doesn’t last though.

It is a bit heavy lotion but totally worth it as it is suitable for both combination and acne-prone skin and also provides nourishment and moisture lock to dry skin too. I use this overnight and it makes my skin supple and squishy in the morning.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion is an everyday moisturizer for long-lasting hydrating effects. This quick-acting, lightweight Moisturizer for acne-prone skin leaves skin smooth, soft, and soothed, without an oily feeling.

It is a bit heavier/creamier formula. But it doesn’t feel greasy which would usually make my skin breakout and not work with other acne products. My oily skin feels plump, nourished and so much more alive. 

It works well on my mild eczema. It gets rid of any tightness in the skin and makes my skin look shiny and smooth. I have tried using this lotion on my face (which the packaging says you can), but it may clog pores, so I would recommend keeping it on your body. Please note that this lotion contains almond oil, and therefore may not be suitable for anyone with sensitivities.

Normally, I used Cetaphil moisturizing cream after bath. I use it in the morning, after washing my face and before sunscreen, and I use it before bed, after cleansing and other skin treatments. I use this to moisturize my body and as a gentle makeup remover in addition to using it as my facial moisturizer. 

This moisturizer comes in a variety of different sizes. For first time users, I’d recommend you buy it in a smaller bottle until you know whether it suits you or not. It is available in some supermarkets and most pharmacies.

Why we like it:

This unique formula is a fast-absorbing, lightweight that provides instant and lasting hydration. It hydrates the driest areas and moisturizing hands, feet, elbows, and knees, where dry skin can be prevalent. A gentle yet effective for use as a face lotion.

How to use:

Apply daily to the dry skin as often as and when required.
