    Detailed comparison of CeraVe lotions/creams w/ pictures, May 17, 2016

    Skin care is a very personal thing, so you can see details on my skin type, concerns, etc., at the bottom of this review. All products mentioned will also be linked below so you can do an easy comparison based on your needs.

    Overview/ intended use/ claims/ packaging/ actual results:

    CeraVe Cream: intended for normal to dry skin. Comes in a large tub (16 oz) or in a smaller 1.86oz (56mL) tube. Contains hyaluronic acid. Thicker consistency similar to a body butter. Non-scented. I recommend scooping a small amount of this product into another smaller container. Since it’s such a large amount if you purchase the tub, you don’t want to continue dipping your hands into the product over the 6+months it would take to use up—particularly if you’re prone to breakouts. There is a version that has a pump in the lid as well, but I don’t have personal experience with that version.

    CeraVe Lotion: Comes in a 12 oz bottle with a pump. Intended for normal to dry skin, but is really more toward normal or oily. I have combination skin that is much dryer in the winter, and this isn’t as hydrating as I need during those months. My husband has dry skin and can’t use this product at all. This is mainly a summer lotion for me. It contains hyaluronic acid and isn’t scented. I’ve used this on my body and face, but it’s mainly a summer facial lotion for me. Pretty much the same product as the CeraVe PM, but cheaper than the product marketed as specific for facial use.

    CeraVe SA Lotion: This is a miracle product for me. It comes in an 8 oz (237mL) bottle with a pump dispenser. It’s not scented and contained salicylic acid as the main active ingredient. It is the same constancy as most pump style lotions and soaks in quickly. Intended for dry, rough, bumpy skin. I use this product on my face when I’m having blemish issues or my skin looks a little dull. I also use this on the backs of my arms to keep them smooth and soft.

    CeraVe AM: Comes in a 3oz (89mL) bottle with a pump dispense (basically the same packaging as the PM lotion). This is intended for daytime use. Contains SPF 30 (zinc oxide, octinoxate, octocrylene), hyaluronic acid, and it lacks fragrance. I had a bad reaction to this product, I’m assuming because of the addition of sunscreen. I used it three times and was left with red bumps and inflamed skin, so I discontinued use. It will not be included in the rest of this review as I didn’t use it more than a few time before giving it to a friend.

    CeraVe PM: Comes in a 3 oz (89mL) bottle with a pump dispenser. Contains hyaluronic acid. Intended for normal to dry skin, and specific for facial moisturizing. This product is essentially the same as the CeraVe Lotion, but the specificity for facial use means it’s more expensive and dispenses a smaller amount of product. I finished the lotion above, and still had this. Once this is empty I’m just going to purchase the CeraVe lotion instead as I can’t tell any difference between the products, other than packaging and the amount dispensed with a single pump (due to packaging again).

    Comparison of thickness/ hydration (see attached photos):

    CeraVe Cream: You can see from the photos that it’s a much thicker, creamer product than the “Lotion” products produced by this brand. It absorbs within a few minutes and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. If you’re familiar with other “cream” products, this would be similar to a body butter and is the right most lotion on my hand in the comparison.

    CeraVe SA Lotion (and other “Lotions” from this brand): They have a more liquid/translucent consistency you typically associate with a pump based lotion. This is the same consistency as the “CeraVe Lotion” which also came in a pump (not pictured as I didn’t repurchase when empty). It sinks in more quickly than the cream, as it’s thinner. It also doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy or filmy afterward. This is the middle lotion in the photo comparison. Note that it’s very slightly thicker than the PM lotion, which is the it’s left.

    CeraVe PM: This is a nighttime treatment cream I use mainly in the summer months or when my skin acts up in the winter. To me, it’s a version of the “Lotion” thickness and after using up this product I’ll return to the normal size (and much cheaper) full size Moisturizing Lotion. I can’t see any difference between those two products, though you can tell in the photo this is a more translucent and a slight amount thinner than the SA Lotion. This is the left most lotion on my hand in the photo comparison.

    How I Use These Products:

    Warmer Weather: I use the Moisturizing Cream on my body. If I’m not having skin problems I use the PM lotion or the Moisturizing Lotion on my face. If I am having a few problem areas or I notice my skin looks dull or the backs of my arms are bumpy, I switch over to the SA lotion, typically at night. I use the…

    This cream is pretty good. I honestly can’t tell if it’s any better than cetaphil cream. They both do a good job during the summer. The real test is always the winter months. The pump on this is nice at first but then when it gets lower the pump is pointless and you just have to keep taking the top off.

    Take a look at the picture comparing my 3-month old’s face before and after using this a few days. The skin on his front, back and arms have taken a similar turn for the better. Will be loading up on this stuff!
