I recently reviewed a fabulous anti-aging body cream, CeraVe Renewing SA Cream. They SA stands for salicylic acid, and as soon as I saw it was a key ingredient, I agreed to sample it.
I am absolutely thrilled with it. It literally melts into your skin and deeply hydrates it. After over 3 weeks of using it, my skin honestly looks plumper and more hydrated.
Though I am hopelessly devoted to La Peau Skincare, I am mindful that it is not inexpensive and may not be in the budget of all my readers. I was so enamored with CeraVe's Renewing SA Cream, I asked them if I could try their Facial Moisturizing Lotions, AM and PM and nicely, I received them this week.
I am always reticent about daytime moisturizers that contain SPF 30 or higher. It's not that I don't see the merit of using them. Some formulations however are so thick and zinc laden, that I end up looking like a Geisha--Not so with CeraVe's AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion, in fact, it left my skin with a lovely glow. I promptly slathered my hands with it.
That night I used the PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. I like the consistency; neither too thin or thick. I did feel that I wanted to add additional moisture around my eyes, and added my La Peau Eye Cream.
CeraVe's website is under construction, so I found the product description on Drugstore.com. I thought it was interesting that the only difference between the AM and PM creams is the SPF 30--Otherwise, they are identical.
Here is how "they" are described:
- Hyaluronic Acid
- Controlled Release
- Non comedogenic
Repair - Restore - Maintain
- Ceramides - Helps reduce lipid levels in damaged skin to repair, restore, and maintain the skin's natural barrier. Essential in preventing water loss from the skin
- Niacinamide - Helps the skin produce more natural ceramides and fatty acids essential for repairing and restoring the skin barrier. Also shown to reduce redness.
- Hyaluronic Acid - An essential ingredient (humectant) that attracts water to the top layer of the skin and ensures that the skin remains hydrated.
Just like CeraVe's Renewing SA Cream, I think their AM and PM Facial Moisturizing Lotions are high quality products, packed with ingredients that are featured in products at 10 times their cost.
Impressive and a bargain to boot...I highly recommend them.
