Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer Review

The Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer is one of my favorite moisturizing products in my skincare routine.

Even better, it’s probably loved by your dermatologist too.

Why? Well, it has great ingredients in a list that’s short and sweet.

Plus, it has a lightweight lotion texture that I love, and it works so well to leave my dry skin feeling soft.

Key Benefits of Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer

Using moisturizers or cream is the number one skincare step you should be taking everyday. Moisturizing protects your skin barrier and leaves your skin feeling soft.

If you have acne prone skin or deal with redness and rosacea, you definitely need to be moisturizing too.

Dermatologist approved, this entire brand is safe for sensitive skin and dry skin.

Daily use can provide you with effective moisturization and help with eczema and flaky patches without feeling greasy.

Who is Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer good for?

A good facial moisturizer like this is essential for all skin types:

  • Dry skin
  • Combination skin
  • Sensitive skin
  • Oily skin
  • Acne prone skin
  • Skin with texture

Is the formula rich enough for dry skin?

I would say yes, but everyone’s experience will be different.

Skin Loving Ingredients in Vanicream Daily Facial Moisturizer

The moisturizer absorbs quickly and deeply hydrates your skin. The formula will protect skin’s moisture and won’t clog pores.


These skin care ingredients are non comedogenic and great for hydration:

  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Glycerin

These two ingredients are gentle and hydrate skin by pulling in environmental moisture.


The second ingredient I love in this formula is ceramides. Ceramides are fatty acids that make your skin feel deeply moisturized and help soothe irritation.
