I find most facial cleansers very drying, so was on the lookout for a moisturizer to use after washing my face. I wanted something light enough to wear under my makeup and had an SPF of 15 or better.
Cetaphil creates such a product. Cetaphil’s Daily Facial Moisturizer is packaged in a four ounce bottle with a pump. It dispenses just enough lotion to cover my face nicely. I like that it is fragrance-free. The SPF factor protects against both UV-A and UV-B rays.
Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer goes on smoothly and with no greasy-feeling residue. In fact, they advertise that Cetaphil moisturizer contains no lanolin or paraben, which are usually what it responsible for a heavy or greasy feeling in a lotion. Within just a few minutes I am able to put my makeup on. In fact, my foundation goes on more smoothly after I have used this moisturizer. It also works throughout the day. I do not find my skin getting oily or dry over the course of the day.
It is more expensive than run-of-the-mill lotions, but not as expensive as some specialty products. Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer does not provide any wrinkle-free or age-defying effects- it is just a good simple facial moisturizer. I highly recommend this product if this is something you are seeking.
