The sunscreen from CeraVe appears to be similar to other products but has ingredients that set it apart.
CeraVe is best known for its range of skincare products, including moisturizing lotions, creams, cleansers, sunscreens and healing ointments. Their products are enriched with a blend of three ceramides and other ingredients to help repair and strengthen your skin.
In my search for a sunscreen that works for my sensitive skin, I found CeraVe sunscreen face lotion is the best solution to protect my skin from the sun’s harmful rays.
Why I love CeraVe Suncreen Facial Lotion
I started with CeraVe’s face lotion sunscreen with SPF 50, which includes ingredients like microfine zinc oxide, ceramides, and is oil free.
Using a small amount, I gently rubbed it in. A little bit goes a long way. It spread easily and left a matte type finish.
Having used numerous sunscreens over the years, many of them left a slimy, oil residue on my skin. The CeraVe sunscreen rubbed into my skin without the slimey feel.
Although it does leave a slight white cast, my skin is very light and it was barely noticeable. I have read other reviews where the white cast was frowned upon. I don’t have an issue with it.
I’ve used the CeraVe SPF 50 face sunscreen for my face only and use the CeraVe sunscreen body lotion with SPF 30 for my neck, chest, arms and legs.
With other sunscreens I have used, I still got some sunburn. With CeraVe sunscreen, I get no sunburn at all. That is most important to me.
The product does not get on my clothing and works as intended.
Another huge plus is my sensitive skin does not react negatively to CeraVe sunscreen. Other products gave me rashes and redness, but CeraVe is quite the opposite. My skin feels great for the duration of the time I use it.
I loved the sunscreen so much I also now use the CeraVe moisturizing cream for face and body. With my very dry skin, I had a difficult time finding a moisturizer that really works.
Most sit on top of my skin and feel a little slimly, without doing the job of keeping my skin moisturized.
CeraVe was a welcome surprise in that I can apply it once in the morning after a shower and my skin stays moisturized. A very small amount goes a long way and my skin seems to love it!
Taking care of my skin is my number one priority while in the sun. Of course using other protective gear is important too, including hat, sunglasses and protective clothing.
