This weekend, I am going to review my HG moisturizer. I consider this product as one of the greatest things every happened to me.
I was suffering with extremely dry skin. The skin around my nose got dry and flaky. In order to get rid of the flakiness, I scrubbed that area. Big Mistake.! It got inflamed, red and took forever to get cured. When it got cured, the dryness returned.
I tried numerous products. Nothing worked. Because of this, I couldn't wear foundations or any makeup. And, when I put up a facebook status asking my friends to suggest me a good moisturizer, I was asked to try the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion. I have already used the Cetaphil cleansing lotion and it was good. So I had no second thoughts in trying their moisturizer.
It is priced at Rs. 230/- for 100 ml and comes in a while plastic bottle with a flip shut lid. It is travel friendly. I have carried it my bag, suitcase, duffle bag etc and it had never leaked.
About the product:
Moisturizing Lotion specifically formulated to soothe chronically dry skin.
Non-comedogenic Cetaphil® Moisturizing Lotion has a non-greasy formulation that is mild, non-irritating and long lasting. This gentle moisturizing formula contains emollients and humectants that bind moisture to the skin. This fragrance-free moisturizer contains no lanolins or parabens.
This is a white colored, thick, creamy product and is fragrance free. It spreads easily and only a little quantity is required for my face. It is very good at moisturizing sensitive dry skin like mine. It retains moisture for a long time.
It has not irritated my skin and it had actually cured the flakiness and sensitivity I suffered around my nose. I have been using it since Jan and I will never trade it for any other moisturizer. In summers, I apply it only in the problem areas and spread it to the rest. In winters I take a little more quantity and apply it on my entire face, hands and feet.
It wears well under makeup. The cream takes around 2-3 minutes to get absorbed completely into the skin. When applied more, it does have the tendency to make the face a little oily.
If you have normal skin but rough knees and elbows, you can apply it as a spot treatment and it works wonders.
1. Wonderful product for dry sensitive skin.

3. It cured the dry irritated skin around my nose.

Maniac’s Rating: 5/5.
Verdict: Must have for dry skinned people. I will continue repurchasing it forever.
Hope you girls found my review useful. What is your favorite moisturizer? Do share it with me.
