CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil ($23.99) is a new unique facial gel oil that contains five different ceramides to hydrate skin. I started using CeraVe about two years ago when my skin started freaking out during the Winter. I had flaky cheeks, flaky eyelids, tightness, etc…I’m typically sensitive only dry but for some my skin had a melt down during the cold weather and the only thing that helped was CeraVe. Fast forward, present day, and many of their items have become some of my favorite skincare picks like their Skin Renewing Night Cream which is really rather awesome.
Fast forward to Spring 2017 and the brand is launching a few new products to their permanent line one of which is the innovative Skin Renewing Gel Oil. I’m seeing a lot of unique and innovative skin picks the drugstore this month! Gel oils, cleansing oil scrubs, etc…hmmm! I like this new trend because skincare can be pretty cut and dry!
Let’s take a look at my review and thoughts on the new CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil.
I picked up CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil at Ulta back in December when there was a 20% off coupon code available but if you’re interested there’s a better deal now. CeraVe is buy 1, get 1 50% off plus save an additional 20% off using coupon code 400295 at Ulta.com.
This comes in a 1 oz pump jar and I have to admit I thought it was a LITTLE expensive at $24 dollars. But hey, you never have to pay retail for drugstore skincare right? You’re bound to get a deal at some point so, mentioning the point is probably redundant.
This is exactly what they say it is! A gel that’s an oil. I know, sounds weird right? Pumped out of the tube it’s a gel-like consistency but once massaged and applied onto your face it breaks down into a lightweight oil. I use a lot of Korean and Japanese skincare products so, I have to admit most skincare innovations in the US fail to impress me. This was very impression and unique. It’s just a very interesting way to apply facial oil. First of all it doesn’t drip out of your hands nor is it messy. I don’t know about you but I’ve made a mess once or twice when applying facial oil plus it leaves my hands rather greasy. The fact this transforms into a oil during the application makes for a lot less mess. It also seems to absorb a lot more easier and doesn’t leave skin with a greasy or shiny film. It’s very hydrating and it smooths and softens skin plus it has no fragrance. Not to mention this contains ceramides to help fortify and rebuild your skin’s natural layers which is awesome for preventing aging and helping to retain moisture.
CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil is absolutely brilliant pick up and truly an innovative skincare pick from the brand. I think it’ll be a welcome addition to any skin types routine. It provides moisture without being heavy or too rich and it helps your to retain that moisture while preventing it from aging. Truly a great product.
I loved it.
