My skin has always been a bit dry, especially in the winter, but it’s hit a whole new level of DRY since moving to Guam! If I forget to moisturize before leaving the house, patches of scaly, dry skin become visible as soon as air hits my skin. To make matters worse, my daughter has developed eczema. We eliminated some allergens such as fish, nuts, wheat, etc. and her skin cleared up in 2 weeks, but as we begin to re-introduce them, it came back. So, we begin eliminating them again, but had no luck the second time around. I guess the next step is to get her tested for allergies. The doctor recommended a moisturizing cream such as Cerave or Cetaphil. We tried Cerave first. It always felt a bit thick and sticky to me. Also, it never seemed to absorb into the skin. Once we ran out, I thought I’d give Cetaphil a try. We haven’t been using it long enough for me to know if it will make a difference in her skin. But, just the light and creamy texture and the way it absorbs into her skin has me sold (for the time being).I’m interested in trying other Cetaphil products, but first I want to hear from you.
Where do you stand on the Cetaphil vs. Cerave debate?
Have you used any other Cetaphil products such as their face wash, soap, or lotion?
