I use this product every day. I use it on my body and my face. If I try and use any other products on my face, within a few days, my face will start to break out. It doesn’t break out bad at first, but if i don’t switch back it starts to get bad.

My night time mouisturizer
Safe for my acne prone skin, not heavy which I love, perfect as my night time moisturizer. Awesome product if your night time routine has actives, very simple.

This lotion is the best skincare item I’ve found in 20 years of being obsessed with finding the perfect face lotion. Can I just say how incredibly soft and silky my skin feels after using it, and how NOTHING else compares? I’ve spent ridiculous amounts of money on lotions and potions and creams and serums and to find Vanicream at CVS so reasonably priced was a miracle from the heavens! How did I not know about this until now??!! I love applying it after washing my face while my skin is still damp; it seems to hold on to the extra moisture even better than when used on dry skin. But either way, it’s the best product I’ve ever found and I will never stop using it!

All Vanicream Products Are Great
I love this lotion. My Dermatologist recommended it. I'd tried so many other products and none have worked as well to keep my skin soft throughout the day. Also love the Vanicream bar soap, face cleanser and shampoos.

Will Use Forever
I absolutely love the Vanicream Lite. My dermatologist recommended this lotion to me with a sample when I was having TERRIBLE rashes, hives, and lip dermatitis and sores. Turned out to be Celiac Disease. I was SO miserable- everything stung and burned my skin. Steroids and gluten free diet eventually cleared up my skin- but I just lathered myself in this stuff. Even my lips! I will never give it up. Still use it daily!! Also, the sunscreen is awesome!

Vanicream lotion
I received the vanicream spf cream from my dermatologist and enjoyed it so decided to purchase this body lotion. The lotion is a bit disappointing. Extremely lightweight, runny liquid consistency. It provides a tiny bit of moisture while applying but that nourishment dissipates almost immediately. My skin is normal dry. If you have sensitive skin that doesn’t require much moisture you might enjoy this formula.

Smooth skin all over! Ahhhh-mazing!
The lite lotion is truly amazing! My skin has never felt so smooth in all my life. I use it every single day right after my shower and can use it on every inch of my body. Thank you so much and please don’t ever stop making this awesome product!!!

Thank you!
I have to finally admit that I’m getting older, which is hard to do because my aging skin still acts like it did when I was sixteen. EVERY specialist I’ve gone to says I need to moisturize, so I go out and spend hundreds of dollars on whatever she suggests at my follow-up appointment because the last lotion/cream/oil didn’t work. I happened to be seeing the NP this time who has her own MA. I told them my problem and the MA gave me a sample baggie of this product. It worked so well I cried! The very first time I tried this I was a convert. My skin is as soft as a baby’s butt, my pores are still big, but less oily and noticeable, my face doesn’t hurt anymore, fine lines and acne have all but disappeared. My Drs were right, I did need to moisturize, they just never found the right product for my skin. I honestly can’t wait to try this out on my legs, but it will always be my facial cream from here on out. Thank you for a great product that works on me, that is quite a feat!

Like it! It’s light feeling, not heavy. Moisturizes, yet has breathability.

My forever lotion
After developing allergies to fragrance and a particular chemical my allergist recommended this. Effective, with a nice texture, I use it every day after showering. Body, hands, face, all around perfect. I like the cream too for heels, etc.
