My favourite moisturizing cream by far. I use the whole CeraVe line. My sister is a pharmacist and recommended the line to me. A little goes a long way!
When I first tried it on my arms, it did moisturized my skin without being greasy.
But after using it for 24 hours, the areas where I have no rash before started getting itchy.
My dermatologist, who went through the list of ingredients, told me the paraben preservatives are the likely culprits,
because he switched my skin medication from cream to ointment because I reacted to the paraben preservatives used in the medicated cream.
I wished the manufacturer would switch to using preservatives that are less irritating, then I would try this again.
I use this on my 14 month old. He had horrible eczema this winter and this is the only product (in combination with CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser) that cleared it up
I have very dry skin that gets flakey in the winter, as well as moderate rosacea. The cream has a wonderful smooth texture and sinks easily into my skin without leaving it looking greasy. Unfortunately, it seems like my rosacea may disagree with it - after several nights of wearing it before going to sleep I started to wake up with red bumpy skin, when usually I wake up with clearer skin. I'm not sure if it's a reaction to the cream, or if the cream simply isn't moisturizing enough for how dry my skin is in winter. I plan to try it out again in the summer, when I don't need as much moisture - I really like it and hope it works for me!
I had a terrible infected skin rash on my arm and legs. Cerave was recommended to me by my doctor after it cleared up with the use of antibiotic creams. I have used it ever since and it has helped clear up bruises, kept rashes away. Because it did so much for my body I bought a jar to use on my face. It is a very good moisturizer. I highly recommend it. Thank you for stocking it Well.ca.
So.. a co worker was on your website and brought this cream/lotion to my attention. I suffer from severe eczema and I find that things work, and then they don't. I am willing to try anything because after any prolonged use of a cream or lotion, I have to stop using it and try something else. I bought this a couple of weeks ago and I have to say I love it! Its VERY moisturizing and long lasting. I shower and slathering it on fairly thick and its not sticky or greasy. It helps sooth my eczema by giving my skin the moisture it needs. All in all a great product. I would recommend it. I also use it on my face and its light enough, feels good.
My dermatologist recommended this product for a patch of sun damaged skin. I didn't see it in my local pharmacy so tried well.ca and there it was. I have used it for about 2 weeks and really believe it is having a positive affect on the tenderness of the damaged area.
I've used CeraVe for 10 yrs.,& it's great & was recommended to me by my dermatologist. I haven't used well .ca for that long, but I can tell you their service is superb, even on returns. They went above & beyond in their service to me.
We started using this cream after our toddlers bath. It helps so much with dry skin and small eczema patches. I highly recommend
This cream is good for eczema, I had Dyshidrotic hand eczema, where I used prescription creams(corticosteroids!), but once you stop them, the condition simply returns back, due to Canada's winter. So, I use this cream now all the time, at least twice daily and before going out, and it works by protecting my hand and helping it to heel.
This product is saving my sanity. My 3month old son's pediatrician recommended this cream when I mentioned to her that the possible cause of my baby's eczema is genetics. After just one application I can see a lot of improvement. He still gets dry skin (prolly because of the weather) but I don't see any signs of eczema anymore. Works really well for my baby.
Like others, I bought this for my 8 month old who has had eczema since 4months. It is a great moisturizer. Goes on smooth, isnt too thick. My one complaint besides price is that the claim of 24hrs is very false for us. I have to apply it to his face 3 times a day. No big deal but was hoping for morning and night only applications. As he hates when i put it on. Oh and it hadnt cleared it skin but has helped.
My 4.5month old infant has developped bad eczema. We've tried a lot of creams, even those approved by the Eczema Society of Canada. I stumbled upon this cream while browsing well.ca and then searched it on the mommy boards. Not many have used this cream on their babies, but those who have raved about it. So i purchased it and after only 1 application, my son's skin was so much better. Now 2 days later, it's back to his smooth baby skin! Highly recommend Cerave! My only complaint is...what am i going to do with all the other creams?
This product is a miracle! I had a strange break out of excema on my face, it was literally cracking and bleeding and i was actually sent home from work it was that bad! The Dr had given me prescription strength hydrocortisone cream, and antihistamines. After using the steroid on my face (including my eyelids and under eyes) for almost two weeks with no results, I discovered the CeraVe line and it saved my skin! No joke, after only ONE day of using this cream, you would have never even guessed that I was having some pretty serious skin issues...and it has been 3 days now and my skin is back to normal again! I didn't even finish the course of treatment my Dr gave me. Threw out those nasty steroid creams and no more antihistamines. I love this product, I have switched out all my old cleansers and lotions for this and will use it head to toe. I also plan to switch out my child's creams and preface it with CeraVe. I am a believer!
Recommended by the dermatologist, it has alleviated the dryness and itching of my skin on arms and legs. I have tried many such products over the years and this is by far the best yet. I have also purchased the cleanser and expect even greater improvement in the health of my skin as a result. I will definitely recommend CeraVe to friends and family.
My son has terrible excema and although this cream seems to help his skin (by no means cure it) he cries when I apply it. He says "it hurt it hurt". Sigh.
This product was recommended to me by my daughters allergist for her dry eczema skin. It works amazing and we can tell the difference if she doesnt put it on after a bath. I hope that the cream keeps working. It seems that some creams work in the beginning but then stop working...so far cera ve is awesome.
The first few times I used this product, I was surprised that it did not immediately sink into my skin like other (much more expensive) moisturizing creams I have used. But I liked the way it made my skin look and now I rub it in slightly when I put it on. Good cream.
Bought this because the lotion was not moisturizing enough on my body.. The cream provides a smidge more comfort. Skin still looks crepey...guess it is just old age... :-D
Dermatologist recommended this for my daughter's eczema. It's a nice cream, but it didn't do much for eczema itself. It kept the skin hydrated though which is awesome.
Best cream ever!! I have psoriasis and it is almost cleared up. Everyone I have recommended this to love it and has cleared up whatever dry skin issue they have. My kids also have exzcema and it cleared up too!!
The best moisturizing cream I ever used. Leaves a great feeling on the skin. I use it on legs and arms every morning, and see a definite improvement. At the dermatologist earlyer this week, she confirmed this is an excellent product.
This cream is very good for my son's eczema. We put it on about 2-3 times a day and it has helped keep his skin smooth and soft. We have tried many moisturizers and this is the only one that doesn't seem to irritate or make him itchier. Highly recommended.
so so moristurizer, doesn't really help to treat my eczema. And I don't like the smell, even unscented, to me, it has some weird smell. Regret to buy the big size, don't like texture. I now use it only on my feet. Prefer L'occitane ultra rich shea butter cream.
