To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Wow, absolutely amazing product. I’m considered an essential worker right now, so my under-eyes are quite dark and baggy with lack of sleep and stress, but this is really working wonders for me. Changed the look of my under eyes within 4 uses.
1.0 out of 5 starsseller trying to deceive us by putting a sticker on the expiry date.
Reviewed in Canada on April 8, 2020
I noticed the expiry date at the back of the bottle had a sticker over top of the actual date. The sticker that says "10/2021". I thought it was suspicious to need a sticker there when the expiry date is on the bottle itself. So I peeled off the sticker and turns out its expiring 10/2020.
Second time purchasing this sunscreen/moisturizer, glad to find it at the same price here as Walmart (it was out of stock there). I wouldn’t say it’s the best if your looking for a hydrating moisturizer, but it works decently well as an everyday sunscreen. It doesn’t leave white casts, which I’m super happy about as I wear it under concealer. (Adheres to makeup pretty well so works as an everyday primer) As a “moisturizer” I’m pretty happy that it actually has SPF30 (standard recommended spf). It’s not oily at all and does not break me out like other sunscreens. However, if you plan on spending longer hours outdoor, I would say to use a sunscreen instead of something that markets for moisturizer as well. (I still wear a moisturizer under this sunscreen a lot of the time)
Bonus: the ingredients are actually really ethical and good for you
I got this as part of an Amazon bundle purchase and didn’t read the reviews about the white cast, bummer. I have very fair skin so if it leaves a white cast on me I feel like it would leave a cast on anyone! Personally I did not like how the product sat on my skin nor blended, it starts to pill almost? If I accidentally rub my face white residue clumps are on my hands...
The expiry date issue is no longer an issue I believe as I got a bottle and box where the expiry dates were 10/2023 with no altering. I am sure it’s a good product, just not for me. I have oily combination skin.
I really like this moisturizer but it's getting a 3 star because of the sticker over the expiry date which shows it's out in Sept of this year..but the sticker says next year..which means to me that the seller is being deceiving and as well the spf in expired moisturizer does not work as well so its causing intentional harm to a person's skin. Not Cool!!
I don't know if it's the original product but it's too thick and very hard to spread and it peels. I tried it directly on my skin with no products because it's supposed to be moisturizing but it was very hard to spread and when I rub too much it peels so I thought maybe my skin was too dry so I tried putting a little bit of moisturizing cream without SPF first and then apply this one but it still peeled even if it was a bit easier to spread. I don't think I will buy it again as it's really uncomfortable to use and wear and I'm not even sure it protects from the sun.
Unfortunately, I bought the "normal to oily" version. Unfortunately, after a few days of use, my face started shedding and peeling...what a mess! It was only then that I realized I should have purchased the one for dry skin. I gave the "normal/oily" skin one I bought on Amazon to a friend who does have oily skin. My neighbourhood pharmacy carries CeraVe products so I purchased a huge jar of the dry skin version there and it works beautifully. After nearly two weeks of use, the skin on my face is in exceptionally good condition and my wrinkles are getting much less noticeable, something unexpected but much appreciated. It is non-greasy and quite light so don't look like someone buttered my face which is often a problem with other dry skin products I've purchased. Whoopeee! So, as the old man said, All's well that ends well!
i leave this sunscreen right next to my bed for the days that i’m not in the mood to get out of bed to protect my skin from the sun although it leaves a white caste and i pair it with my moisturizer in order for it not to be too apparent it doesn’t break out my skin i have pretty sensitive skin so i really like that however i don’t like the fact that’s it’s not unscented since i have sensitive skin
Decided to try it after seeing the 4.5+ star reviews. TBH, not very impressed. Has a strong sunscreen smell, which I don’t expect from a facial sunscreen (body I can accept). Leaves a white cast for a good minute on face, disappears after but still feels heavy and slightly greasy. It does retain moisture. I don’t have super sensitive skin but at night (after wearing this for a day) my cheeks seemed irritated (red and bumpy) so I’m not sure about the sensitive skin claim.
I really like it as a body sunscreen though! White cast seems to disappear more quickly on the body.
For facial sunscreen, I’m going back to Etude House Sunprise or trying other brands. Would not buy this again for face but would buy again for body.
This stuff has a nice feel to it, not too heavy. But it pills easily under makeup and takes a LONG time to rub into the skin. Also clings to any hairs on your face and makes them white; there is NO rubbing it in once its on some hair. I have messed up my eyebrows more than once when I had to put it on in a rush. I will still use it, cause the feel of it is very nice and I'm not a fan of wasting products. But i would not buy it again.
Pros: - not as greasy as mineral sunscreen - spreads well - one pump more than enough to cover my big face - absorbs VERY quickly - no significant white cast for lighter skin tones (e.g. east asian and caucasian) - no lingering scent after absorbed
Cons: - terrible stinging to eyes (teared up from yawning with this stuff applied around eyes and it BURNED) - brief, mild stinging for a few seconds after applying to damaged/broken skin - tiny pilling (with just this + cerave lotion) if you run a finger over skin
Note that these observations were during early summer. My skin is dehydrated easily and needs creams instead of lotions during low humidity/winter months. So when I used this product as my sole moisturizer during winter, my skin got greasy to try and compensate for the dryness. This product is definitely more irritating in comparison to mineral hypoallergenic sunscreen, which doesn't irritate my skin/eyes at all.
I do love CeraVe products, but sadly really dislike the CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM SPF 30. It is so thick and it does not absorb; it leaves my skin feeling greasy. It doesn't feel like a moisturizing lotion, but rather straight up sunscreen, with I really dislike to begin with. I would not recommend this product for anyone with oily skin.
