Both of these products contain hyaluronic acid, which helps push moisture to the surface of your skin. This keeps it healthy, hydrated, and “plump” in appearance because it’s working to improve your skin elasticity. Whenever I don’t use the daily lotion, I can see a visible difference in my skin. It doesn’t appear as hydrated and firm. Instead, it’ll look a bit dull. I’m not claiming this is a miracle product or anything, but for me at least I do see a subtle difference in using it!
When I was in high school, I had acne-prone and oily skin. I HATED using face lotion because my face already felt oily enough. While I haven’t fully escaped from adult acne unscathed, I now understand the importance of keeping your skin hydrated even if it’s oily or acne-prone. Both of these CeraVe products have never made me break out, which is a huge plus in my book! Whenever I’m experiencing hormonal acne around my period, I’ll use a tretinoin cream, which makes my skin more sensitive. The CeraVe facial lotion helps calm down the sensitivity the tretinoin cream causes, and overall my skin appears clear and supple.
Talking about these products on a large platform won’t help the issue of them selling out, but I guess now you have an idea of why they are selling out. It took a lot of trial and error to find products that worked well with my skin type, and these ended up working for me. I’d personally love to see CeraVe go eco-friendly with packaging in the future (lotion bars, perhaps?), but until then at least we can recycle.
