Swearing by Cetaphil – do you go for a lotion or cream option?
July 12, 2016
In my study of all things CETAPHIL I’ve come across the fact that they offer lotion and cream options in the moisture department – something that immediately sets them apart when it comes to choosing a range. I know some dermatologic or specific skin concern ranges offer one moisturizer only and to me it’s super important to have the choice. For one, men more often than not prefer the lotion option because it’s thinner in consistency, absorbs immediately, almost never leaves an oily barrier and it doesn’t look like they spent hours prancing in front of a mirror. Another reason I think the consumer market would like the choice is because for me, I generally like wearing a thicker formula moisturizer in winter and a thinner lotion one in summer when layering on your skin can cause congestion and clog pores, resulting in breakout. Lastly, wearing makeup is just much easier when applying it over a lotion most of the times. A thicker cream that leaves a protective barrier across the face can cause foundation to ‘slip’ and would require a close eye and constant touch-ups.
All that being said, having a choice is putting the power back into the user’s hands and can give them a sense of accomplishment when they can exercise their preferences and see positive results. With all that in mind, I tried and tested these following two products from the CETAPHIL range for you, definitely resulting in me saying I #SwearByCetaphil !
- CETAPHIL MOISTURIZING CREAM – Sensitive skins can use this thicker consistency cream with no worries. It’s non-comedogenic (does not block pores), absorbs nicely, leaves a super fine protective barrier on the skin, suitable for very dry or damaged skin due to dryness and dehydration and softens skin to leave it feel comfortable and soothed.
- CETAPHIL DAIL ADVANCE ULTRA HYDRATING LOTION – aimed at soothing dry and dehydrated skin in a thinner consistency lotion, it does it’s magic with a mix of 5 specific lipids which are referred to as the Epidermal Replenishing Complex 5. Although the formula is thinner than the cream it provides up to 24 hours of moisture to leave skin nourished, smoothed and soft. Also not fragranced and won’t clog pores.
When you go out and try these two formulas, do yourself a favor and try them both because personally I like alternating between the two. Sometimes I use the cream at night with a serum and the lotion during the day under my sunscreen, so it’s really important to have them both, see?
Next month in my #SwearByCetaphil campaign I will be showing you something you probably didn’t think you’d find in the Cetaphil range, but works like a charm, so keep an eye out!
