From the Manufacturer

- Thick consistency
- Fast acting ingredients
- Works well on sensitive skin
- Not a big fan of the packaging
This Cetaphil moisturizing cream has a very, very thick consistency. It gets absorbed by the skin very fast. It provides softness and keeps the skin moisturized for a long time. This non-greasy and unscented formula works great even on sensitive skin. It provides shine without leaving the skin feeling oily. You don't need a lot to get smooth and oil-free results. A little bit goes a long way, even if you suffer from very dry skin. My only problem with this product is the packaging. I don't think it is healthy to keep sticking your fingers in the jar to get the product out. But, since it is such a very thick product, I cannot even suggest that manufacturer uses a bottle and a dispensing pump instead. I guess you just have to wash your hands very well before sticking it in the jar to avoid contaminating the product itself.
The bottom line:
If you have very dry areas on your body that are unable to retain moisture, I think this is the perfect product for you. I use it on my hands after every wash and it keeps my hands moisturized until I wash them again. I can also see a slight improvement after using the product for almost two weeks. I find myself using less product than I was using before, and I can feel the elasticity on my skin.
