Cerave Cleanser and PM Lotion

Have you ever experienced what I call a "skin freak-out"?  You know, the ones where your skin turns red and you have bumps and sensitive areas?  I had to try something because my normal routine was not cutting it. 

I heard about Cerave through research, and that it was dermatologist recommended.  I decided to try it, and I'm so glad I did!  The cleanser is a bit pricey for drugstore (runs anywhere from $11.99-$13.99 depending on where you purchase it).  Wal Mart has the best deals!

This cleanser has a lotion consistency and is very creamy.  I massage it into my face in a circular motion and rinse off with water.  This cleanser replenishes the skin's moisture level, is fragrance free, and packed full of ceramides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid.  It's formulated to attract and hold moisture.  My skin was glowing and soft.  After about a week of using it in the AM and PM, I noticed my face was completely clear and no longer red/sensitive.  It was balanced and moisturized.

I also purchased the PM lotion.  It's a bit pricier than the cleanser and it runs anywhere from $12.99-$15.99.
I use this at night after cleansing and it's wonderful!  I felt a slight tingle after applying it but it didn't hurt my skin. This lotion has a thin consistency (feels like a water based moisturizer) and spreads evenly on the skin.  It really soaks into the skin and moisturizes it!  The best part is that it doesn't clog my pores or make my face all greasy. It balanced my combo-dry skin with a glow!

All in all, I give this skin care line a 10!  I adore it!  It's the only skin care line that makes my skin look and feel moisturized and soft!
