This moisturizer (and really most CeraVe products) are a favorite on the BuzzFeed shopping team. I've been using this moisturizer for over a year now. It was actually recommended to me by my dermatologist, who I was working with to deal with acne. I stopped using everything I had tried before and simplified my routine to this moisturizer, the night version (without the SPF), and the foaming face wash, and let me tell you, I love them all. This moisturizer is great because it really is lightweight and blends in in seconds. It's really I'll I've been wearing on my face since March, and my skin has never looked better. Plus, it protects me when I'm out in the sun, which is a big plus in my book. And here's what my fellow colleague has to say about it:
Promising review: "You know how everyone is always on your case about wearing sunscreen EVERY SINGLE DAY? And maybe you're wondering how you could possibly fit yet another item into your packed skincare routine? The solution is simple: a moisturizer with SPF 30. This lazy and economical option means you can continue your usual routine and just sneak in the SPF, kinda like how parents sneak vegetables into their kids' food. There are lots of options on the market, but I always opt for the cult-favorite basic: CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM! It's oil-free, fragrance-free, absorbs easily, and boasts MVP ingredients like hyaluronic acid and ceramides (1, 3, 6 II). I wear this every single morning, and probably will for as long as the pharmacy will sell it to me. The hyaluronic acid hydrates and the ceramides help restore the skin barrier and increase moisture levels. In other words, it makes your skin silky soft.
I have ultra-sensitive skin — like truly diva-level, gets-red-from-everything kind of skin — and I have never had a problem with any CeraVe products. In conclusion, this is a non-irritating, affordable option for non-fussy people who just wanna tear through their skincare routine and get out the door." —Rebecca O' Connell
