Hi, my lovelies! Sorry for being away for a while as I was caught up with some work. But today, I’m here with a very useful product review and yes, you can thank me later. ?
Whether it’s winters or not, your skin does need nourishment on a daily basis. Every time we wash our faces, we feel the need for a good moisturizer that would keep the skin soft and hydrated the whole day. There’s one that I have been using since last winters and trust me it’s the best I’ve come across till date. The Cetaphil Moisturising Cream it is and it does wonders to my skin which no other moisturizing cream could do in so many years.

My Experience with the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream
I have combination skin and it often keeps very irritated due to sitting in AC for long hours. Even though it doesn’t harm me if I apply it all over my face, I avoid applying it over the oily areas on my face around summers. It has an extremely mild scent to it which fades away very quickly after applying. The cream is quite thick and blends in skin very beautifully. I apply it every morning and it instantly softens my skin. No irritation whatsoever! I’m good for the entire day and it feels great to me not having red irritated skin and flakes over scratching. During winters I applied it twice, after a shower in the morning and at night before going to bed. Not only to my face but also everywhere I felt my skin was getting dry. To my surprise, it actually kept my skin soft and hydrated the whole of December and January.
Overall Performance of the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream
It has a good, smooth texture and works amazingly for the dry and sensitive skin. It does what it claims. It hydrates the driest skin with its blend of emollients and humectants which bind the water to the skin, preventing it from losing moisture. It absorbs into the skin immediately. Soothes dry, irritated and itchy skin.
