Since I dragged the topic way off, let me drag it back.

I finally ventured to try Cerave Cream on a small area on one side of my face. Today is the second day, and my skin is so soft and moisturized! No burning, no itching, no stinging. Just a cool, refreshing feeling when I apply it.

I'll continue to test it and update here.

Hold on to your socks, everyone. I think I have found a moisturizer I love, that beats my beloved Canvas Base Cream! In a matter of days, it has returned moisture to my skin, or at least helped my skin heal so that it can retain it's own moisture, as nature intended. No more dry, itchy, stinging skin. I guess ceramides do work! I apply a dab to damp skin, concentrating on my cheeks, and dab the little bit left on my fingers onto my t-zone, where I don't need as much.

The Cerave gave me regular acne bumps after about a week, but I do remember that it was soooooo wonderfully moisturizing. Yay for you!

And your Vanicream does the same for me! Isn't it weird? But we each found our own wonderful moisturizer!

Missed you! (hug2)
