CeraVe Lotion Review
You have “Old Skin!”
That’s what I was told a few months back when I went to a nail salon for a manicure. Now I know my hands are super dry but man I went to go and enjoy myself and then was told how awful my skin was.
I wanted to enjoy my birthday present from my boys but that kind of put a damper on my mood. Needless to say now it’s the joke in our house with me and my husband.
I have always had a hard time keeping my hands moisturized. When I was younger I remember saying wow my skin looks like elephant skin. You know how you can see all the cracks when its dry. Can you picture it? Well that’s how I used to think my hands looked. I know awful right?
It also didn’t help that I went into a career where I was constantly washing my hands. As a Dental Hygienist you wash your hands A LOT! and then when you have children you wash your hands A LOT too. Plus always using hand sanitizer it does a number on your hands.
Cue CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion
Not too long ago I finally had enough of my dry old hands, even though i’m only 32 I have old hands, apparently :P.
I have tried SO many different lotions and oils and nothing seemed to work. It was either too greasy or seemed to wear off by the first time I washed my hands.
I have been hearing about CeraVe for a couple years now so I thought I would give it a try. So I went to my local Shoppers Drug Mart and bought the CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion.
- To be for extremely dry, rough bumpy skin
- Help to prevent and reduce the recurrence of dry, itchy, red and flaking skin
- It exfoliates to improve the texture of skin
- Includes Salicylic acid, Ceramides, Ammonium Lactate and Vitamin D
It also claims that it has an MVE technology which according to the company is a MultiVesicular Emulsion that will release moisturizing ingredients over a period of 24 hours. Also will release it layer by layer which will keep your skin feeling nice and soft over the course of the day.
My thoughts on CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion
I am in LOVE with this lotion.
It’s lightweight and not greasy at all. Which for me is a big thing because there is nothing more that I dislike is when my hand cream is greasy. Even with the million and one hand washes I do everyday I find that my hands are still feeling nice and smooth by the end of the day.
I am thankful that I have finally found a cream that works with my hands and doesn’t leave me with old elephant skin. HA! I know that if I forget to put on my cream for a few days which happens more often then not, that once I put it on, my hands will feel so good.
If you are like me and have extremely dry skin and nothing seems to help you should try this lotion.
Leave me a comment below if you have tried this or if there are other products you have tried and love. I would love to hear about them.
I hope you enjoyed this post if you did please give it a share 🙂
