Key Benefits of CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

As far as body lotions go, the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion is wonderfully formulated to be both moisturizing and hydrating.

Plus, the combination of hyaluronic acid and ceramides among other ingredients moisturizes without clogging pores. So you can use it on your face too as a daily lotion to restore your skin’s natural barrier.

What skin types is CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion good for?

The bottle says normal to dry skin, but I’ve been using it for years and recommended to many clients. It’s good for:

  • Sensitive skin
  • Dry skin
  • Combination skin

If you have extra dry skin or live with particularly dry weather, you may prefer the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream ($19.99).

This lotion may work for oily skin depending on your preferences too.

Is the formula good for oily skin?

Your mileage may vary, but yes, the Cerave Daily Moisturizing Lotion should be good for oily skin. It’s formulated with humectants and ceramides that your skin barrier needs!

Key Ingredients in CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion

There are so many skin loving moisturizing ingredients in this lightweight, oil free moisturizer.

Trust me, your natural barrier or dehydrated skin will love it.

Three Essential Ceramides

CeraVe is known for its MVE technology (a patented delivery system) and formulating with three essential ceramides:

  • Ceramide NP
  • Ceramide AP
  • Ceramide EOP

Similar to cholesterol, ceramides moisturize and replenish your skin’s protective barrier. This helps restore smooth skin.

All Day Hydration

Thanks to an ingredient list with hyaluronic acid, glycerin, cetyl alcohol, and cetearyl alcohol, this daily moisturizer helps hydrate your skin barrier.

These ingredients are essential moisturizers for both your face and body.

Plus, it has a super lightweight texture and a matte finish.

How do I use it?

First, remove your makeup with a cleanser. If you’re looking for a good cleanser, check out my Stratia Velvet Cleansing Milk review.

Then, apply any toner or serum that you like. Finally, layer the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion afterwards.

In the morning, you could also consider following up with SPF. At night, you can complete your skincare routine by following up with a lightweight facial oil like Stratia Fortify ($21) and/or an occlusive like the CeraVe Healing Ointment ($10.99).

The combination of this routine moisturizes, retains skins moisture, and protects your skin’s barrier.

Can this be a body lotion?

Yes, the fragrance free CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion is phenomenal for moisturizing your protective skin barrier. That goes for both your face and body and all skin types.

I use it as a body moisturizer for my skin daily.

In Conclusion

In general, I love this brand, the CeraVe daily moisturizing lotion is no exception.

Similar to Vanicream, this brand is approved by dermatologists and the National Eczema Association as it is particularly gentle.

I suggest giving it a try in your skincare routine if you’re looking for a lightweight and affordable moisturizer or lotion.
