I have sensitive skin so I’m often hesitant to try new skin products on my face. Although I’m in my mid-30’s, I still have issues with breakouts. I was hoping to leave that in my teenage years – that and my elastic waist jeans & silk shirts (no, I won’t be sharing a picture). Seriously, if we ladies have to start worrying about fine lines at this age, shouldn’t we be able to leave breakouts in the past?
My skin is very oily and I used to think that I should skip the moisturizers for this reason. I was very wrong! Proper facial moisturizing lotions actually help all skin types – oily, dry or combination skin.
I’ve replaced my regular facial moisturizers with CeraVe AM & PM Facial Moisturizing Lotions and I’ve been really pleased with the results. My skin feels a lot softer and looks healthier. It has also helped even out my skin tone so I no longer worry about red patches on my face. I actually feel comfortable going out to run errands now without having to wear foundation!
I love that the CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion has SPF 30 protection, which has helped prevent sunburns this year. It’s a light lotion that gives adequate coverage without the sticky, heavy feeling that you may feel with other brands. With skin as fair as mine, sunburns are a real concern but I’m happy to report that I’m sunburn-free this summer. I never thought I’d be comfortable sharing a picture like this on the blog but this is my makeup-free face!
I used to be guilty of not washing my face before bed. If I didn’t wear makeup during the day, I just skipped washing and moisturizing for the night. In order to properly put the CeraVe AM & PM Facial Moisturizing Lotions to the test, I started washing my face every night before bed and it has made a huge difference with my breakouts. CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion helps to restore and maintain the natural protective function of the skin barrier. With the patented MVE® delivery technology, the lotion provides a controlled release of essential ceramides and other skin-nourishing ingredients slowly throughout the night so you wake up with restored & healthy skin.
These products are both really affordable. With both of the moisturizers, a little product goes a long way. I’ve been using both of the products for months now and the bottles still feel like they’re full!
CeraVe® is the first brand to contain the essential ceramides, cholesterol and fatty esters that healthy skin needs, delivered through a patented controlled-release MVE® system over 24 hours. The daily regimen of cleansers and moisturizers helps repair, replenish and protect the skin barrier to leave your skin looking and feeling soft, clean and healthy.

It has been great with my sensitive skin. I’m always nervous to try new products on my face because of reactions to other products in the past.
This product looks amazing – I’m going to have to get some! Thanks for sharing.
