    I have acne-prone combination sensitive skin. I stumbled upon this while browsing shelves to replace my old spf 30 moisturizer--which another brand discontinued. Decided to give this a try after seeing "good" ingredients in what seemed to be decent amounts: zinc oxide for spf, dimethicone, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, ceramides. I ended up liking this product so much that I immediately ordered a spare after seeing it on sale here at drugstore.com

    Tip: for all products with hyaluronic acid in it, be sure to apply onto damp skin.

    My experience: The non-greasy fast-absorbing smooth texture seem to work especially well on my acne-prone/oily areas. I noticed any "new" acne marks faded faster (which I suspect is due to the niacinamide and spf combination).

    However, it doesn't seem to be a good enough occlusive moisturizer for my dryer areas--especially for winter. But no big deal: I fixed this by mixing this moisturizer with a drop or two of organic jojoba oil before applying to damp skin on my dry areas--for my oily areas, I do not mix.

    However, a couple of things:

    1) I would not recommend this product to friends who shop cruelty-free.

    2) I wish the percentage of zinc oxide would be increased. The current percentage seems decent for daily use but if I were to spend the day outside, I would use an spf with a higher percentage of zinc oxide (but then again, I'm pretty picky about spf).

    This is a good facial cream except that it is not broad spectrum so does not protect against skin cancer and aging. The description on drugstore.com incorrectly says it is. The packaging box makes that clear and I called the company. They said it is not broad spectrum. Drugstore.com immediately sent a free return label, apologized and sent another brand which is broad spectrum without a mailing cost. This description needs to be corrected please.

        Even though my skin is not terribly oily, this product left me with a major oil slick on my face. It looks terrible without makeup, and is too greasy to work under makeup. I wouldn't recommend.

            I use this every morning and the PM version every night. After years of using a different name brand, I was told I still had dry skin. No more! My dermatologist recommended the CeraVe products to me.

                Comments about CeraVe Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM, 3 fl oz:

                I have combination skin so it's tough find face lotion that satisfies both the dry and oily parts of my face. This one is perfect. It moisturizes with making my skin feel disgusting or like my pores can't "breathe". I didn't select long-lasting as one of the pros because you're supposed to be reapplying sunscreen about every two hours, but the moisturization this product provides lasts me all day.

                I noticed one reviewer complain that this product isn't broad spectrum and that upon calling Cerave, they also claimed it isn't broad spectrum. I just want to point out that this product actually IS broad spectrum, meaning it blocks both UVA and UVB rays. If you look at the ingredients:
                Homosalate & octinoxate blocks UVB rays
                Octocrylene blocks UVB and short length UVA rays
                Zinc oxide blocks the entire spectrum of UVA & UVB rays

                I also think this product is comedogenic; I don't get break outs using this.
