Product Review: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

I received the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream free from Influenster in the Jingle VoxBox to test out. I was excited to get this Cetaphil Cream as I fondly remember it being the lotion I'd see in my Grandmother's bathroom. Personally, my typical lotion is store brand lotion with cocoa butter, so Cetaphil has never been on my radar outside of seeing it in my Grandmother's bathroom.
I've used the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream for about a week now, at least once a day on my hands and occasionally on my feet and I have to say I do like it. Keep reading to get my honest review.

Product Review: Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream | A Relaxed Gal

(I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster, but all opinions are my own. )


"Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream contains a superior system of extra-strength emollients and humectants clinically proven to bind water to the skin and prevent moisture loss. The result is long-lasting relief for even severely dry skin. The non-greasy formula is excellent for hands, feet, elbows, knees, and any other areas that require intensive moisturization.
  • Intense and lasting moisture to replenish sensitive, dry skin — great for eczema and very dry skin Clinically proven to provide immediate, long-lasting hydration that soothes dry, itchy skin
  • Unique formula attracts water to the skin and helps prevent moisture loss
  • Quick absorbing, rich, non-greasy
  • Fragrance-free, mild, non-irritating

What I like

  • It easily absorbs into my skin
  • Doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy
  • A little goes a long way
  • Can be used on my hands, feet, elbows, etc.
  • Doesn't have a fragrance

What I don't like

  • The packaging isn't a pump bottle but a tub
  • The price is a bit higher than I normally spend on lotion

Final verdict

While I've liked using the Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream I'll have to think about whether I want to pay 3x more than I currently do for lotion. If I lived in a colder climate I think the price might be worth it, but living in Florida I don't have much use for such an intense lotion.
