CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion ($12) is one of those beauty budget facial moisturizers that makes you shake your head in wonder. I’ll be honest, I splurge on skincare! Especially facial moisturizers and eye creams. Most facial moisturizers I’ve purchased at the drugstore are all about fragrance with very little in the way of good for you ingredients. But the same can be said of high end skincare too.
That’s why CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion comes as a pleasant little surprise.
CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion actually comes in a PM and AM version. The AM version contains an SPF 30 and the PM version which can be used on normal to dry skin is a highly hydrating formula that contains ceramides, niacinamide, and hyaluronic acid. There’s a pretty impressive amount of hydrating factors in this $12 bucks facial cream.
This is a gel-like texture that’s fragrance free that absorbs instantly into skin and almost immediately hydrates on contact. Skin feels smoother and softer within a few seconds of applying it. It’s just an overall amazingly formulated moisturizer for dry skin. It contains a good deal of niacinamide which is a form of B3. Niacinamide can prove irritating for some but it is an exceppent way to increase the product of ceramides to protect and strengthen the outer layer of your skin!
If you have drier skin this is an excellent way to get your skin feeling soft and smooth again. On the plus size it contains a host of incredibly hydrating ingredients but on the downside it doesn’t contain a ton of antioxidants. Although formulated as a night cream I actually like it as a day cream especially now with the cold, harsh Winter weather playing havoc with my skin!
Honestly, as a winter skincare staple for daily AM use I think CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion is perfect! I can save my expensive anti-aging skincare for night use and can easily use CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion as a daily hydrating moisturizer as it doesn’t leave me shiny or greasy and manages to keep my skin smooth and very, very well hydrated.
This one is a must for the drier skin ladies and lads!
