Skin Care For Sensitive Skin: The Search Ends Here

My high school years were probably the best years of my life.  I had so much to be excited about:  there was prom night, school fairs where I got to ogle cute boys from the all-boys school next to our school, and countless sleepovers at my girlfriend’s house.

Although those years were riddled with so much fun, there was an undertone of insecurity on my part, as I battled with acne.  Yes, I was your typical pimply-faced teenager who tried every imaginable product to solve my skin problems.  My search ended with Cetaphil.  I started using the Gentle Skin Cleanser then, and haven’t stopped since.

My love for Cetaphil continued to bloom through the years.  When I gave birth to my daughter, Cetaphil was what the hospital used to clean her newborn skin.  I continued using that on her well until her preschool years, and I must say that she has never had any case of rashes or skin infections- ever!

I know I’m not getting any younger, and that I should seriously start thinking about moisturizing my skin.  Since I have ultra-sensitive skin that tends to breakout quite easily when aggravated, I have always been hesitant to slop on any type of moisturizer on my face.  I have made history with Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer with SPF 15, as this is the first ever moisturizer I’ve used.  I fell in love at first application!  I like that it’s not greasy and unscented.  It doesn’t feel heavy on your face, and amazingly, I didn’t feel the slightest itch.  This moisturizer keeps the skin hydrated while protecting it from the sun’s harmful rays.

Another product from their line which is worth trying is the Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion.  Again, it’s perfect for sensitive skin like mine, so I’m once again grinning from ear to ear.  It’s a lotion meant to give intense moisture to very dry skin.  It’s fragrance-free and non-greasy.  A week after I started using it, I noticed the skin on my arms is smoother.  I used to feel some bumps along the part of my forearm which hits the desk when I put my hands on my office table.  But now, they’re gone.  I use it as an after-shave on my legs as well.

At the risk of sounding like a TV commercial, I just have to say that there simply is no other product line for me… Cetaphil is it!  My search for the perfect skin care product has finally come to an end.
