Cetaphil Derma Control Moisturiser SPF30

One of my faves and constants.

The pump packaging is great. It allows me to use the exact amount that I need for my face and neck.

The formula is a liquid cream that applies easily and smoothly onto the face and neck. It feels lightweight and does not clog my pores, my skin still feels like it can breathe even if I wear make up over it. I love that it has SPF30 as it helps me feed two birds with one scone :)

Sometimes I add three drops of some _Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5_ and it's still great on my skin.

Overall, it's a great moisturiser and worth every penny. My bottle lasts me about two full months.

Since I've incorporated it into my morning routine, I haven't had any major break outs.

works for me!

I dont usually suffer from oily skin but occasionally around that time of the month I'm often breaking out and notice a bit of oiliness so I use this moisturiser ..

It really helps control breakouts and prevents my face from looking like a disco ball.. I also use the face wash. This has an spf of 30 so very convenient.

CETAPHIL products are great.

Didn't work out for me

I found it very weird to use a cream with an SPF at night,
The cream itself came in a pump action bottle which I like as it allows for proper dispensing without contamination or wastage, it is not a totally smooth cream and does take a while to absorb,
For me personally I will not be buying this again, I had a little flair up, but it went away after a day if re-instating my clarisonic,
This product burned my eyes, and caused my eyes to tear badly every time I used it,
When I contacted cetaphil regrading this they advised me to not use it on or around the eye area, as it is sensitive and even more so during orratane treatment(I am in month 11 taking 40mg daily), and I should buy a specific eye cream to use in eye area while using cetaphil cream.

This doesn't equate for me, the derma control range is meant to be specifically for people like me on acne treatment, yet we can't use it around our eyes, and we have to use a product containing a SPF at night, at night skin needs a more nourishing treatment in my opinion
I went back to using my NeoStrata yesterday and happy to report no more crying after applying my cream!

It is what it is

I enjoyed using this product. It is lightweight, easily absorbed and reduces redness and shine. I was pleased that it also had a built-in SPF30. It is great for sensitive skin, even with the SPF. It does not treat any existing blemishes though, I saw absolutely no difference. However, it was not formulated to do so. I will probably try using a serum (for blemishes) before applying the moisturiser so that I can obtain dual benefit.
It would also be nice having a seperate Cetaphil night cream in this range as I would not apply the Cetaphil Derma Control Moisturiser at night,especially with a SPF as this may cause further breakouts. Nonetheless, overall I was pleased with this product.
