Today I’m reviewing the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 – specifically the normal to oily skin version.
I have sensitive skin, so this brand was recommended to me as something to try that would be gentle on my skin. I was having problems with my skin reacting to another brand of moisturizer, so I was in the market for a new kind. Trying a new skincare brand is something that makes me nervous because I never know how my skin will react to it. So far though I’m really liking it and I’ve had zero reactions to it, which was a big relief.
First off, I like that it’s in a pump bottle. It makes it easier to get the exact amount out that I want. In addition I feel like it’s cleaner than a pot of moisturizer that I’d have to use my fingers to get it out. I also like that the bottle takes up little room on my bathroom counter. I think everyone is looking for more room in there.
I typically put it on after using cleanser as well as any time throughout the day that my face feels dry. My chin tends to get dry, so I frequently put it there and I feel like it really does help. I also like that it has broad spectrum SPF protection built into it. If I know I’m going to be spending the day in the sun I’ll put a stronger SPF sunscreen on top, but otherwise I like that moisturizer and sunscreen is in one step.
The CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion SPF 30 is only available in a 89 mL pump bottle. Mine has lasted me more than six months though, so I think it’s a great size. you also don’t need to use a lot – a little does a long way. It doesn’t take long to absorb into my skin, so it’s nice that this skincare step doesn’t take a lot of time.
It can be found at drugstores for around $20 or online here (affiliate link).
