Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Review - For All Skin Types

Hey everyone, I am back with yet another review today. We all are aware about the goodness of Cetaphil products and their promising skin friendly ingredients. Each one of us has at least one member in our family who is fond of Cetaphil products and using them since years.

Cetaphil moisturizers add the perfect amount of nourishment to our skin and solves most of the skin related problems.

Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion Review

Basic Details

It retails for Rs. 445 for 100ml bottle and comes in three different sizes;100ml, 250ml and 500ml.

You can easily get it from Nykaa, Amazon, Flipkart or any other local drugstore.

About the Product

Cetaphil are well known for their gentle skincare and generally ideal for wintertime. If you are someone who is dry skin type so, you can also include it in your summer AM or PM routines.

The formula is non-comedogenic, fragrance-free and dermatologist recommended. The term non-comedogenic means that it does not contain any ingredients which can clog our skin pores and that's the best part of it. Also, the lotion is white in color which means that it is free from artificial colorants.


The moisturizer comes in a white color bottle with a light green flip-flop cap. It also has a screw open in the bottom of the cap. The container is completely opaque but you can use the screw cap to open the bottle and check the amount of product which is left out.

The packaging is sturdy and travel-safe.

My Personal Take on it

It claims to be a moisturizer for All Skin Types but being an oily skin person I cannot use it in summers. It feels little heavy, greasy and makes my face look dull in summers.

However, it is my Go-To Moisturizer in Winters and works fantastically well for that purpose. Just a small quantity of it provides all day hydration to my skin. It works wonderfully in healing flaky or dry skin.

I generally apply it after taking my shower and it keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized for the rest of the day. Only a pea-size amount is sufficient to moisturize my entire face. It easily blends and gets absorbed into my skin. I never faced any acne, irritation or any other issues while using it in winters. Basically, it is the savior for my winter skincare routines.

One thing which I should mention is that, we need to use very little amount of it over our face. If we use it in excess then it will make our face look oily.

As summer season is almost here so, I am planning to switch to a lightweight moisturizer now.

Bonus point which I should mention

It was recommended by one of the skin specialists to my mother in 2008, when she had extreme rashes and irritation over her face. She is a dry and sensitive skin type person and everything does not suit her. She started using this moisturizer since then and never turned back to any other lotions. It helped in healing her skin from all the rashes, irritation, burning sensations and dryness.

Final Verdict

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream is clinically proven to provide immediate and long-lasting relief from extremely dry and sensitive skin. One pea sized product quantity can provide the moisturization for whole day. It never irritates our skin and does not causes any breakouts or other skin problems. I already finished one bottle and bought another one for me.

You can also use it if you have eczema and wanted to go for a decent moisturizer for your skin. Most of the skin specialist recommends Cetaphil products. But, it is equally important that you should consult your doctor first and then start using any product in case of severe skin related problems.

Would I repurchase?

Definitely yes, in next winters.
