When the pandemic started, I was hooked by TikTok’s skincare videos and they all had one thing in common: everyone there was using CeraVe’s products.
Up to that point, I had never heard of this brand. Now I see what all the fuss was about!
Cerave is owned by the L’Oréal Group and one of US dermatologists’ favourite brands. Their skincare line contains three essential ceramides (ceramides 1, 3, 6-II) fatty acids and hyaluronic acid.
Those three work together to keep your skin moisturised and protected from environmental aggressors, such as pollution.
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser
The CeraVe Hydrating cleanser is creamy and thick and stays like that during the application, without getting foamy. The great thing about is how gentle it is: no dry or tight skin afterward!
Perfect for sensitive and normal skin, I personally find it amazing during colder months but it’s a bit too heavy the rest of the year.
Also, during the week before my period, I usually get multiple little spots and the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser doesn’t feel right. Even if it removes dirt and impurities without over-drying, I think that I need something that feels less nourishing and more purifying during that timeframe.
Last but not least, it’s non-comedogenic (it won’t clog your pores) and fragrance-free (always a big plus for me).
CeraVe Moisturising Cream
I truly hope l’Oréal would never discontinue this cream because I’ve finally found the perfect nourishing cream. Where has this been all my life?
Whether you’re dealing with cold weather or you’ve used a product a bit too harsh the CeraVe Moisturising Cream will come in handy.
The formula is rich and heavy, but not oily: you can massage it, wait for a few minutes and, if you want to, easily apply your makeup. That’s why I’m currently using it both at day and night, which I usually don’t do!
How much do they cost?
Not much, considering how much product you get and how much it last.
- CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser = 16€ / 473€
- CeraVe Moisturising Cream = 15€ / 340gr
Where to buy?
Around the world, it’s available at superdrugs. In Italy, CeraVe is available in pharmacies and online on Lookfantastic.it and Amazon, just to name a few.
Are CeraVe and Cetaphil the same?
No! Despite the branding is quite similar, but CeraVe and Cetaphil are two different brands.
To me, CeraVe has been a great discovery, especially at this price point. Have you ever tried anything from them? Have you been influenced by TikTok perhaps?
I’m lucky to have found such great products but my “skincare experiences” haven’t: do you remember when I bought the most rated cream on Amazon and it was A FLOP?
