Seriously, is there a better recommendation for beauty products than the one’s you’ve finished right to the end? Ones you use again and again, right to the very last drop, then re-purchase?
In my household, there is one brand that we ALL use consistently, and that brand is Cetaphil.
Good to the VERY last drop
To illustrate, this was a conversation that happened just recently between hubby & I:
Me: “Thoban, where is the tube of Cetaphil Cream that was on my desk?”
Thoban: “It’s next to my basin in the bathroom.”
Me: “But Thoban, I haven’t photographed it yet! I need to do a blog post on it. Please stop using it till I’m done with it – you’ve already used half the friggin’ tube!”
Thoban: “Sorry, but it’s my favourite and I like that I can use it on my face and body, and it doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky”
Two days later
Me: “Thoban, Miyo, where is the tube of Cetaphil Cream that was on my desk?”
Thoban: “I haven’t touched it!”
Miyo: “It’s in my bathroom, Mom”
Me (in a highly irritated voice): “Miyo, I haven’t photographed it yet. Please will you & Dad stop taking products off my beauty desk & using them before I’ve had a chance to photograph them!”
Miyo: “But Mom, it’s only the Cetaphil we take because it’s our favourite.”
And there you have it. I have to mention that it’s not only my hubby and daughter who love Cetaphil, but me too! Cetaphil is a range often recommended by dermatologists because it’s gentle, suitable for very sensitive skins and is fragrance free. If it’s good enough for the Derms, it’s certainly good enough fro me.
Whenever the skin on my face flares up, I immediately stop the skincare I’m using and swap my moisturisers out for the Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion Face & Body (R360). Just last year, I was battling with skin sensitivity issues and turned to this trust moisturiser – READ POST HERE.
The Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion is a lightweight, creamy lotion that absorbs quickly and moisturises the skin for up to 24 hours. It’s fragrance & colourant-free (two of the biggest triggers for skin issues) and won’t clog pores. The formula contains an Epidermal Replenishing Complex that includes a combination of 5 ingredients that hydrate the skin such as Glycerin, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Panthenol, macadamia nut oil. It can be used by anyone, even infants and those suffering with psoriasis and eczema. Oh, and it’s not just for the face – it can be used on the body too.
While the above product – a lotion – can be used on face & body, sometimes one needs a heavy-duty body lotion for times when the skin on the body is very dry. That’s when we turn to the Cetaphil Moisturising Cream (R360).
The formula contains a superior system of extra-strength emollients and humectants (draws water from the environment into the skin) that are clinically proven to bind water to the skin and prevent moisture loss.
Now, even though this is a wonderfully rich and nourishing body cream, it’s not at all oily and manages to be quite lightweight. In fact, the formula absorbs in less than a minute. I find it’s just the product for hands, knees, feet, elbows, or any other area that needs intensive moisture. Again, it can be used on all skin types and is fragrance-free, mild and non-irritating.
I also LOVE that I can happily use this body cream in the morning, get dressed almost immediately after applying it, and spritz my fragrance of the day on without worrying that it will fight with the scent of my moisturiser. This is why I love a fragrance free moisturiser.
