Moisturizing Lotion is the lotion version of CereVe’s Moisturizing Cream, and other than having a lighter texture and smoother dry-down, the same formulary comments apply: The blend of glycerin, ceramides, cholesterol, and hyaluronic acid will help normal to dry skin look and feel very good. However, even better performance would be possible if CeraVe had added antioxidants. Other than that, every other aspect of this fragrance-free formula should make your skin very happy, even if it’s extra-sensitive.

Claims

Provides all-day moisturization with a single application and is clinically proven to increase skin hydration. Uniquely formulated to increase the skin’s ability to attract, hold, and distribute moisture. It penetrates deep into the stratum corneum (the skin barrier) to restore the balance of essential lipids. This helps keep the skin barrier intact so it can protect against outside irritants. CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion also forms a protective layer over the skin’s surface to help prevent moisture loss.

Brand Overview

CeraVe At-A-Glance

This expanding collection of skincare products keeps things gentle and effective with fragrance-free formulas, many of which are more state-of-the-art than any other product in its price range or pricier versions at the drugstore. In short, this line is a real find!

CeraVe uses a delivery system the company refers to as Multivesicular Emulsion Technology, which releases key ingredients such as ceramides and hyaluronic acid over a period of several hours. Although this technology is undoubtedly helpful, such time-delayed delivery systems aren't unique to CeraVe, and the fact remains that most of the ingredients they use are very helpful on their own, no matter what delivery system you use.

The important point is that ongoing, consistent use of this kind of moisturizer designed to repair the skin's barrier function will result in smoother, softer, healthier skin.

It is for these reasons that most CeraVe products are definitely worth considering, especially at this price. You'll find a options for moisturizing, cleansing, broad spectrum sun protection, and baby care.
