Unlike other dry skin products, CeraVe is not greasy to the point of being gross. In the past, I have used products that were so greasy that I left signs of the lotion on pillows, clothes, and whatever else I came into contact with. Using lotion was such a hassle! Until CeraVe. This isn’t heavy, but it calms my irritated skin. This cream absorbs very fast and you can't even tell you put it on, except that your skin feels better. Skin is well moisturized with no lotion feel to it. I like to use this on my face under makeup and under my fake tanner without breakouts. It works great! My skin feels well moisturized all day long with this product. Plus, I can find CeraVe in the drug store at a reasonable price.
