Rave: Vanicream Lite Lotion

I’ve been using this for 4 weeks now, and it’s become a staple. It’s wonderfully simple and sinks into the skin quickly. It doesn’t leave a film on my face and is cosmetically elegant imo. I can use this in the AM, under sunscreen & makeup without it pilling! This is the first AM moisturizer I’ve found that is so functional. I've also been using this Vanicream Moisturizer at night for awhile longer, this one is more heavy duty (I like using it as my last step to seal everything in), while the Lite Lotion is more hydrating. I suggest both these moisturizers if you have oily or sensitive skin.

New Purchases: Vanicream in the tub

I like it. I’ll use it up. I've used it for over a week, and it makes my skin soft. It has prevented dry skin so I should be satisfied. I think I’m going to try other heavy cream moisturizers after this, because I’m not wowed by it. The tub version is different than the 4 oz moisturizer in the tube, even though the ingredient lists are pretty similar. The 4 oz tube is really not greasy at all and blends into the skin quickly. The larger tub is greasier, and takes a bit longer to sink into the skin.

Cotz spf 45 lip balm

I like this one a lot! It's not too stiff or waxy, but it's also not too greasy. I chose it because of this awesome review. It has a brown tint that blends into the lips well, there's a pic in the review I linked showing how it looks on the lips.

Unrelated Rave: Redken All Soft Heavy Cream

I've tried countless drugstore hair masks, and this one beats them all. It was worth every penny. I didn't use any product afterwards and my hair was soft down to the ends, shiny, and frizz free.

Hi. Thank you SO much for this little ray of hope.

In regards to the products you mentioned, I am in the UK but have found this similar product to the soap that (if you could spare a minute to look at) may be a suitable alternative?

  • zinc pyrithione soap

  • moisturiser - is this the vanicream one you are talking about? Seems to be similar to the Dermol cream I have been starting to use recently.

    I will enquire about Amoxicillin with my gp in a month's time when I finish my course of (seemingly useless for me) Lymecyline. Fingers crossed he would prescribe it to me as he is running out of ideas!

    I never once considered the Simple moisturiser could be making it worse. It is the ONLY thing I have used consistently across the 2.5+ years.

    I have incredibly sensitive teeth so have always hoped I wouldn't have to give up my sensodyne toothpaste but I will look into alternatives without SLS.

    Again, thank you so much for sharing this with me. Every little bit of hope helps!

Most people seem to use pure oils on their ears.

Many lotions contain things that can irritate the skin like fragrances. If I use any lotion besides Vanicream around my ears they swell up and become covered in an itchy dry rash.

u/grooviegurl · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

So many suggestions to make!

Vanicream is less irritating than CeraVe in the tub.

At night I layer Rohto Hadalabo Shirojyun Albutin Milk underneath Sebamed Clear Face Gel. If you're still not getting enough moisture, put a little Vaseline on top to seal everything in while you sleep.

Good luck!

u/bellatovo · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I stuck to simpler, mineral oil based products.
although is pricy, Avene cream for intolerant skin was my savior (it's recently been replaced by the Skin Recovery Cream, im not sure how the formulations compair). Cheaper option is vanicream, which is super thick, best at nighttime (you can thin it out with water if needed). Also some one-ingredient moisturizers; shea butter and jojoba oil worked for me. /u/yvva also mentioned Safflower and MeadowFoam oils in another post about retinoids and cerave burning.

u/bee_antlers · 3 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

I have very sensitive acne prone skin and use Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gentle Cleansing Lotion and Neutrogena Hydro Boost Gel Cream for Extra Dry Skin. These can both be found in most drug stores and on Amazon and are fragrance free and non-comedogenic.

Vanicream is also a popular brand for those with sensitivities. My mom is severely allergic to a myriad of ingredients: fragrance, linalool, benzyl alcohol, propolis. She uses Vanicream Gentle Facial Cleanser and Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream. They are also fragrance free and formulated for people with extreme sensitivities. She hasn't had any problems with them.

u/defstars · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

Yep my son got the same thing. His ears were particularly bad. We cleaned the area with warm water and soap and applied a lotion called Vanicream

Here are before and after pics. The before pic was after he cried for a hour which inflamed the spots. Took about 2 weeks and we still have probably another week until his cheeks are soft again

u/calamityjaneagain · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

It sounds like you have a good start with the Dove and Cetaphil dupe lotion. Those generally are not irritating. I think the Stridex could irritate what you're describing on your legs. I think Stridex is meant more for facial acne and facial skin is oilier than leg skin.

I would say to use unscented Dove or sea salt soap (works great for irritated skin; I think you can find it at Whole Foods.) And then switch to more intensely moisturizing lotion or a body oil like jojoba or almond oil. I like Vanicream for intense moisture.

u/teenlinethisisnitro · 2 pointsr/beyondthebump

My husband has eczema flareups behind his knees and uses Vanicream behind his knees before bed. It works really well and we use it when my toddler has behind the knee flareups as well.

u/notjennyschecter · 2 pointsr/Rosacea

For sure. A lot of people have luck with the CeraVe moisturizing cream, this product works for me and I have dry sensitive skin. A lot of people also recommend Vanicream moisturizer (I personally have not used, but I see a lot of people on here recommending it). These are both supposedly basic and calming products to repair the moisture barrier. They are also not super expensive which is nice.

Right now I am using the Purito centella unscented sunscreen as my daily moisturizer. It is very very moisturizing and my sensitive skin likes it. During night I am using the Purito green cream. Both these products contain centella asiatica which is supposed to decrease redness.

EDIT: Another gentle moisturizer I've read that people recommend on here and r/SkincareAddiction is Cosx ceramide comfort cream.

EDIT2: If you are just starting out with a skincare routine, you should really go check out the bountiful resources at r/SkincareAddiction. For example go on the right hand panel and they have a lot of stuff. Check out the HG (holy grail) threads for moisturizers, etc. They have a whole wiki devoted to

u/ms_kittyfantastico · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Drugstore moisturizer: Vanicream (heavy, but not in a greasy way) or Cerave Moisturizing Lotion (light).

Higher-end / HG: EltaMD AM Therapy (light, but awesome).

Drugstore AHA: any of the Alpha Hydroxy products.

Affordable but online: CosRx AHA 7 (very effective)

u/Felonia · 2 pointsr/MakeupAddiction

My favorite moisturizer right now is the Vanicream skin cream. I've been using it every day during the seasonal change - and it's been very kind to me.

The stuff is great. Suuuuper gentle! and for the weight, quite cheap. It come with and without a pump... of course I prefer the pump.


I've also seen it at Walgreens.

u/PimauwJiph · 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

They have vanicream on the German Amazon, here. That is for two very large tubs. If the other moisturizer is working for you though there is no reason to switch.

They should have the Japanese sunscreens on too. I don't know anything about German sunscreens or how they compare though.

Good luck!

u/Haeschultz · 1 pointr/eczema

I have pretty severe eye eczema and recently my dermatologist suggested Vanicream. Glycerin is a common facial skin allergy for people with eczema, and it looks like it’s in the Cetaphil gel.

u/skrism · 1 pointr/eczema

I buy it from Amazon, I've never noticed it in a store. Although I just googled it and it looks like riteaid and Wal-Mart carry it. I buy this one with the pump on it:

u/dottiepalooza · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I'm trying to figure this out, does my moisturizer have silicone in it? Thanks. link

u/bean-sprout · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

This is the one I have :)

ALL Cerave gives me closed comedones - the cleansers, the moisturizers, anything. It sucks.

u/PeriwinkleMoonchild · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Hi friends! I have some questions about the products I use, my skin, and rosacea acne. Skin seems to be combo, or normal. Can get oily, but rosacea requires moisture.

I use the following: Soap&Glory face wash, african black soap, vanicream, and metronidozale topical. Used daily during and after my shower. I also love real rosewater and dead sea salt water if my face gets really bad.

CeraVe clogs my pores and causes breakouts for me, so vanicream is my holy grail. This combination seems to work the best, but I have a hard time using the metronidozale regularly and I fuck up my skin. Is there anything else I should try so my skin gets better?

Thank you (:

u/elflan1 · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Yeah, This is my hg moisturizer. If you prefer a thinner moisturizer, they have a lite lotion as well that is very good.

u/fawkingreddit · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

No worries!

I'd first try Vanicream Moisturizing Cream. It looks like it's less than 10 euros on Amazon Prime. This moisturizer is pretty bland but effective. It really, really gets the job done without any extra ingredients (that you *could* be sensitive to). Nivea is not bad but it is pretty heavily fragranced.

For spot treatment, I'd try De La Cruz Sulfur Ointment. If you feel like you've been applying other types of spot treatments and nothing has been happening, it's worth it to try sulfur. (Which is not in the clean and clear spot treatment)

Echoing other posters, you do need a sunscreen while using differin. I know it seems crazy in the UK, but it creeps up on you for sure.

Check out r/asianbeauty's recommendations for a more light weight, less 'greasy feeling' sunscreen. I'm sensitive to chemical sunscreens unfortunately (give me eczema) so I embrace the dewy look, They've got some good recs on that subreddit though for really light, not-even-there feeling sunscreens. Off the top of my head, Biore Watery Essence comes highly recommended, as does Corsx Aloe Soothing Sun Cream. Haven't personally tried them because again, eczema.

Cleanser I'd consider going to a more gentle cleanser like La Roche-Posay Toleriane Hydrating Gentle Cleanser, but honestly unless you start getting extra tight/irritated feeling in your skin after starting differin, you can just stick with the cetaphil!

u/kmanna · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Nothing would help the dry skin on my hands. I tried Vaseline and so many creams. Then I discovered Vanicream. I use it in the morning and evening and am good for the whole day. Nothing has helped me like Vanicream!

Here's the link to buy it on Amazon:

u/balsooma · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Skin type: normal to dry, though my nose gets oilier in the summer

I've customized my routine to combat the occasional zit (which are now very, very rare!), as well as SF's and closed comedones (<-- if that's what you call those teeny flesh colored bumps that are not inflamed), as well as slightly larger pores around the lateral sides of my nose.


  • Wash face with either this Garnier cream cleanser or, my FAVORITE basic cleanser, the Korres Milk Proteins Foaming Cleanser (I'm usually wary of anything that says 'foaming' but I really don't think it is very sudsy at all! more like a cream cleanser)
  • Swipe a stridex (max strength) all over my face
  • apply moisturizer: if I'm not wearing makeup I wear Yonka Creme 28 because it smells and feels delicious; if I will be wearing makeup and my skin is feeling really dry I use Vanicream; and if I'm wearing makeup and my skin is being normal I use this aveeno moisturizer
  • I use Burt's Bees Eye's nothing special, looking for a more hydrating eye cream!


  • With a dry face, I do an oil cleanse/massage with olive oil to remove makeup and grits (I do this whether or not I'm wearing makeup!)
  • To take off the oil, I apply Neutrogena Naturals cleanser and then use a wet washcloth (warm water) to wash it all off
  • Apply Avene Cleanance K to completely dry skin and allow to dry for 20 mins
  • Apply Vanicream, Burt's Bee's eye cream and a face oil..I've got quite a few deluxe samples on rotation; really liking the NUDE progenius treatment oil, the Tarte maracuja oil, and the NUXE Huile Prodigeuse. (I would never splurge on the full sizes since there are so many natural, simple oils that could be bought for cheaps that would likely provide similar benefits.)

u/redxocolatl · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I used to have excessively dry skin as well. My dermatologist switched my moisturizer from CeraVe to VaniCream and that made all the difference for me.

u/drkittenprincess · 1 pointr/Indiemakeupandmore

Hey girl!!

Since your skin seems to be itchy and irritated, I would recommend starting out with a fragrance free, non-irritating/hypoallergenic lotion like this one: .

After your skin has stopped itching, I would then move to re-incorporate moisturizing Indie products back into your routine. My concern is that the fragrances or other ingredients in the lotions and oils listed above will be irritating to your skin and prevent it from healing fully.

Best of luck to you!

u/ktdone · 1 pointr/acne

I use Vanicream at night, it's too heavy and shiny for daytime. I think they have a lighter version that would be better for daytime use.
