Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream [review]

Hello everyone! Following my previous review about Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, here I am reviewing their Moisturizing Cream :) I have been using this moisturizer for around 2 months and finally I managed to write this review!

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream Review

As you probably know, Cetaphil's products are fragrance free, safe for sensitive skin and suitable moisturizer for chronic dry skin. Actually my skin type is combination, but when I skin got exposed too much by Air Conditioner or sun heat; it becomes really dry and rough. Meanwhile, I wish I have tried this product sooner before I went to Japan last March, because my skin became dried out during that winter time ╮(╯_╰")╭

Scent & Texture
Yayy for non fragrance moisturizer! \(´▽`)/
This product seriously has no smell or anything. It doesn't has annoying chemical smell like other non-fragrance products either, which is so pleasing for me! :D :D
About the texture, it has thick texture that easy to spread and melts onto your skin easily. I'm not trying to sugar-coating anything, but its thick texture made the application be more economical and convenient; because a little goes a long way 
My mom once tried this product when we have getaway together (we live in different cities) and she said the texture was too thick and she wondered when the product will run out. LOL :p

Overall Thoughts
Normally, this moisturizer will be absorbed into my skin after 5 minutes (more or less) and as expected my skin becomes a little bit greasy after I applied another layer of sunscreen thereon. Due to its super moisturizing effect, I usually only apply little pea-sized amounts of this product on my face and spread it evenly before applying sunscreen 3-5 minutes later. Though I love it so much, I prefer to use this moisturizer when I'm not in hurry or use it as night cream instead. Why? Because it's little bit over-moisturizing for my skin and I don't like the greasy feeling after I layered it with sunscreen.

So IMHO if you have oily skin, this product isn't for you. But if you have normal / dry / extremely dry / sensitive skin, this product is definitely WORTH TO TRY! :)

Kesimpulannya, pelembab ini akan terserap di kulitku dalam waktu kurang lebih 5 menit dan setelah pake tabir surya kulitku akan terasa agak berminyak dan sedikit lengket. Karena pelembab ini punya efek yang sangat sangat melembabkan, aku biasanya cuma mengaplikasikan sedikittt aja ke wajahku dan meratakannya dengan baik sebelum dilanjutkan dengan pemakaian sunscreen 3-5 menit setelahnya. Meski aku suka banget sama pelembab ini, aku lebih suka memakainya pada saat aku pas ngga terburu-buru atau memakainya sebagai pengganti krim malam. Kenapa? Karena kulitku jadi over lembabnya dan aku kurang suka efek minyakan kalau aku tumpuk dengan sunscreen.

Jadi, menurutku produk ini bukan untuk kalian, kalau kalian punya kulit berminyak. Tapi kalau kalian punya jenis kulit normal / kering / super kering / sensitif, produk ini SUNGGUH PATUT DICOBA! :)
