Product Review: CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion

Mature skin is a bitch fickle thing. If you're experiencing it with me, you know what I mean. You've got dry patches, oily patches, smooth areas, areas with enlarges pores, skin that can tolerate anything, skin that is so sensitive that water seems to irritate it, wrinkles, lines, and acne. And that's just on your face. You find a moisturizer that you think is perfect and then after a couple of weeks, your skin suddenly decides that, no, it doesn't like that one. Sound familiar?

If you're not experiencing this yet - just wait.

I don't mind paying a little more for a product if it works well, but if I can find one that can do the job and costs less, that's even better. I've always heard a lot of good things about CeraVe moisturizers, but until now, I had never tried them. Honestly, I haven't needed a lot of moisture until recently. They have a lot of different products, but after looking them over, I opted for the PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion.

If you're not familiar with CeraVe, their products contain ceramides that help restore and maintain the skin's protective barrier. This particular product is lightweight and oil-free, and it also contains niacinamide to help calm redness. It uses their MVE® Delivery Techology for a controlled 24 hour hydration.

My skin isn't super-duper dry, but it just looks younger better when it's hydrated. I use 3-4 pumps of the CeraVe lotion for my entire face and neck. It absorbs quickly and doesn't leave any greasy feeling, but I will say that it makes my skin feel "different". It's not a bad different, it's just something that I had to get used makes my skin feel almost a little rubbery, for lack of a better word. In the daytime, once I apply sunscreen, that feeling disappears. At night, I apply a nighttime cream afterward that makes my skin a little greasy, so it's not an issue then either. But I did want to mention it. As I said, it's not a bad feeling, it's just different.

I also apply this to the back of my hands - and it really makes a difference in the way the skin looks!

My skin tends to be sensitive and acne-prone, but it loves this moisturizer! The best part is that I can pick it up locally. I bought mine at Kroger, and a 3 oz. pump bottle was just $12. Had I checked the CeraVe website first, I would've seen the $2 off coupon! You can print it out on this page.

I'm so happy that I tried this product! I actually liked it so much that I also bought the Skin Renewing Night Cream, and I'll be reviewing that soon.

If you're looking for a reasonably-priced moisturizer that you can pick up locally - especially one that is good for sensitive skin, I recommend giving this one a try!

Have you tried any of the CeraVe products? Which is your favorite?
