Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with spf 15

I have tried tons of moisturizers and I have broken out from just about all of them but this one is different. I have tried the regular cetaphil lotion on my face and it was WAY to greasy… but this one works really really well for me.

Here is what is says on the back of the bottle:

non-greasy and lightweight (true)
protects from UVA and UVB rays
non-comedogenic (true- at least for me)
fragrance-free and PABA-free
dermatologist recommended

It does have oils in it, but they aren’t the icky oils like mineral oil and lanolin.

  1. Ya stevi that seemed to work super well for me, i used the regular stuff while on accutane and it was awesome but then after it made my skin kind of oily so I switched to that as well and its been great!


  2. Cetaphil SPF 15 lotion made my skin have a horrible reaction — my skin became all red, puffy, had tiny bumps, and scaley. I think I may be allergic to the sunscreen ingredient. The weird thing is that I don’t have any other allergies, although I would describe my skin as sensitive.

    Just my experience, seems like others are having good results with this lotion.

  3. cetaphil never really worked for me

    the cleanser was ok

    but now i use dr. hauschka’s cream cleanser! yum!!

  4. I too did not liked Cetaphil, not the cleansor (which really does not clean) and certainly not the moisturizer. I too tend to react to all moisturizers. I post recently I found one moisturizer that works nicely its a hyaluronic acid gel from Kal. REmember only use moisturizer if its necesary. If you dont need the moisture do not use moisturizer cause they are all not going to help with your acne.

  5. I have also stopped using this moisturizer… I noticed after long-term use that my skin was also having some type of reaction- red, scaly bumps like bobic mentioned. I have since switched to Dove Sensitive Skin face lotion. It doesn’t have sunscreen in it, but I don’t spend a lot of time in the sun, especially since it is the dead of winter. My make-up also has a spf added.

    Anyway, I really like the Dove lotion, it is hypo-allergenic, non-comedogenic, frangrance free, etc… and it is a lot less greasy than the cetaphil version.

    I would recommend it to any of you looking for a good moisturizer…

  6. I have switched over from Cetaphil, it worked great during my accutane course and after as well but now that my moisture balance is more normal and not as dry Cetaphil is greasing me out a little too much! I now use Velocity from Mary Kay and it works amazing! Its super light weight and not greasy at all I love it!
