Skin Care Product Review - Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer

Is the summer heat drying up your skin?

Whether you are the type to bake in the sun or hide in the shade, warmer weather can exhaust your skin. Now is the time to amp up on moisturizer, especially if the product protects against UV.

I have been using Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer for two weeks now, and I absolutely LOVE IT! To find out why, read on.


Product Performance

  • Phenomenal moisturizing effect.
  • A little pump onto skin provided a surge of moisture.
  • No perfume-y smell, yucky grease or tingly aftermath. Skin felt smooth and relaxed after use.


  • Its moisturizing effect, of course!
  • No smell. No grease. Just plain moisturizer with excellent results.
  • SPF 15 is always a bonus.
  • Low price point. Only about $15 at local drug stores.


  • The formula is thick. It took a lot of rubbing to even out.

Additional Perks

  • Love the packaging. It's so simple, and doesn't take up shelf space.
  • Easy-to-use twist pump allows one-step open and close.

Overall Rating



Outstanding performance, unbeatable price -- it's a keeper.

Twist top provided a convenient way for access.

Such a thick formula. No wonder this product is so moisturizing.

Please pardon all those blemishes. This is my A.M. no-makeup face.

A few extra rubs finally settled moisturizer onto skin.

Have you tried Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer before?

Do you love it as much as I do?



  1. Thanks for the review! I have heard of this but didn't realise it was that good till i read your review. will definitely keep an eye out for it!

  2. I will have to try this! Sounds perfect for a sunny day out and about.

  3. used this brand of washer when i was a teen, it had been a while, lol...!!

  4. My face gets super dry... so I'm definitely looking forward to trying this out.
    Thanks for the review:)

  5. I've actually never seen this moisturizer before. I loved the Cetaphil face wash, so maybe I should give this try. How long does it normally take to settle on the skin? Great review, btw. :)

  6. I'll definitely keep this in mind when mine runs out! SPF is must!

  7. if only the spf was higher.... it would be perfect! i love cetaphil!

  8. I always hear good things about Cetaphil but I can never find the face lotion, I always find the body lotion. I'll have to look harder, because I think it will benefit my sensitive skin!

  9. cetaphil is great product, I like the soap free cleanser. SPF 15 is a big bonus for moisturizer. I just realized that you are pregnant...congrats! I have missed so many of your posts! You look great by the way. Happy weekend!


  10. When I was a teenager I had really bad acne so I used the centaphil cleansing range & that was really good too

  11. i love cetaphil stuff, and use it for both my kids and myself. you have a lovely face. :)

    enjoy your weekend.


  12. I love your tutorials! I think they're very useful and it's so nice of you to give helpful advice. :D
    I'm following you. :D If you want, you can find me on:
    Have a nice day! :*

  13. love their products they are great quality and priced right for anyone to use they are always in the InStyle best cosmetics issue time after time for a good reason. never tried this but use the face wash daily.

  14. Ahhh...awesome to here it's been good! I JUST managed to find it in the singapore airport!

    I searched for this in every pharmacy in singapore in town and around but only manage to find it in the airport a few days ago! I haven't used it yet but I guess I'll be using it in small amounts since it seems real thick!

  15. I also started using this a couple months ago! I bought the one with SPF 50..I am liking it, however I do find it is a wee bit greasy upon application. Nice blog;)

  16. Cetaphil is great...recommended by my dermatologist, too. Good for problematic skin like mine as I sometimes have eczema breakouts. Never did see or try this one with SPF, though!


  17. ooh! I haven't tried Cetaphil's Moisturizer! Glad you did the review for it.

  18. I always wanted to try Cetaphil.
    I followed you on GFC & BlogLovin.
    Stay in touch,
    P.S. Hope you follow back. :)

  19. If it's too thick for you, try the CeraVe one. It's as moisturizing but thinner. :-)

  20. Lovely blog!

  21. i actually had this exact product! i love it too but have to go for a higher spf this summer :)

  24. i do love it! love the regular cetaphil too but don't use it daily - think it has a few scary ingredients ( along with everything else, right).

  25. I love that stuff...I have the oddest skin.

    Love the in



  26. Thanks for the review GB. I'm in need of a new face lotion. I will definitely try this.
