MOISTURE RICH! Absorbs well into the skin leaving it feeling so soft.Works well on dry elbows and heels.

Probably one of the best moisturizer creams I have used in a long time. The winters are hard on my skin but the worst time is the transition from into spring. This cream is somehting I probably wouldn't have bought on my own (received from Glam Sense) but I'm so glad I got to try it, I will be buying once this bottle is empty.

I received this cream from Glamsense to test out. I have dry skin overall, no matter what i used my skin becomes soft and hydrated for a short amount of time. But with this cream my skin has been hydrated and less dry and flaky for a long period of time. I will purchase this product once finished.

I only used Cetaphil face products before, after discovering this body cream I am pleasantly surprised. IT is very soothing especially for my feet and hands which are usually extra dry or even elbows. When I have allergic reactions I apply this cream and it feels more soothing on my skin. Really nice texture which was nice as well. Decent smell.

I suffer from exema on my left elbow, wrist and the hairline at the back of my head. I have used prescription medications to no avail. After using the Cetaphil Barrier cream for the past 2 weeks, I have noticed a drastic difference in the redness and flaking of my skin in those areas. It seems that the damaged skin is repairing and isn't as itchy or flakey. I believe that this cream has helped immensely. I will continue to use this item

I absolutely love this cream! I have had issues with dry skin for as long as I can remember, and have been on the hunt for the perfect solution for some time now. Not only do I have an issue with dry skin, but also with dry cracked feet/heels. I was selected to participate in a Glam Sense campaign, which catered specifically to individuals with dry, sensitive skin. This cream - Cetaphil Barrier Cream - was one of a few that I received to test out. I couldn't be more grateful for this product! My feet used to be dry, cracked.. I was always hiding them, avoiding wearing all of my beautiful shoes/heels.. this cream has changed all of that! It absorbs so well into the skin (it has vitamin B3 in it, which helps lock moisture in), and better yet, it is non-greasy - meaning that you don't have to worry about messing up your bed/furniture/clothes. This cream not only helped me with my dry, sensitive skin, but it also healed my heels! :D It will save you a lot of money in the long run - I didn't have to purchase separate products - this one does the job!

I got this free from GlamSense, I tried it a couple times. It would be good for people with really dry skin, on my skin it just feels to sticky and heavy, it just takes a little while to soak in. I would not purchase this for myself in the future.

Shantell, Airdrie, AB, Jun 13, 2017

Loved it. Wore under makeup and no breakouts. Great on elbows and knees.

Emily, Penetanguishene, ON, Jun 12, 2017

I received this barrier cream from the top box campaign and was very disappointed with it. The smell alone turned me away from using this product regularly and therefore I cannot comment fully on the effectiveness of this product as I only used it a couple of times. The cream itself was very thick and I am sure with continued use, is very effective in relieving dry skin.

Christina, Brampton, ON, Jun 12, 2017

I received this product from Glam Sense Topbox, and I was quite happy with it. I have dry skin on my elbows and feet, and after using it for a while, my skin was quite softer and felt really nice. My husband used it as well and it helped the dry skin on his hands and feet. Excited to use this product during the winter, as I'm sure it would help during those months where my skin is super dry from the cold weather! Would definitely recommend this!

Amanda, Toronto, ON, Jun 11, 2017

I got this product for free with a few others to test out and leave reviews. I really love the barrier cream. I have very sensitive skin prone to breakouts, and this is a great product to use at night. I normally use CeraVe, and this is definitely on-par with my positive experience with that product. I use the cream after my normal routine at night (it's a little heavy/oily for day-time use), and have found it does not cause any closed comodones, breakouts or otherwise negative skin issues. I do really like this, and I will probably purchase it after this tube is gone.

Great moisturizing cream for your entire body. Also works well for those dry patchy areas like your heels, knees and elbows. Worked wonders on my dry cracked hands

Nikki , Strathroy , ON, Jun 05, 2017

I've always had issues with dry feet and this cream was perfect to help combat the dryness! My feet felt so soft after. I also use this after I shave my legs and I love how smooth they feel after!

tegan, Whitby, ON, Jun 01, 2017

this body cream really helps put moisture into my skin i can feel and see the difference. no more cloths pulling my skin because it is so dry. it makes my skin feel young and alive no more itch

Lesley, Toronto, ON, May 31, 2017

Can't begin to describe how unhappy I am that the Barrier Cream formulation has changed. The old formula really did create a "barrier" to protect from water, and included Shea Butter that was incredibly effective. The new formula with Meadowfoam Oil goes on with a terribly greasy feel, and seems to take forever to sink into the skin enough for the greasy sensation to diminish. I also used the old formula to help prevent open cracks from developing during the winter, and all year round where I have creases in the skin from lymphedema. The old formula has worked like a charm for this purpose, and I have relied on it for many, many years. Now I don't know what I'll be able to find for next winter, because so far, I'm not impressed with the new formulation. Just don't understand why companies tinker with a proven and successful formula!

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback on our new formulation of Cetaphil Barrier Cream. We value customer input as it helps inform future decisions about our Cetaphil product line. We are sorry to hear that you are disappointed with this new formulation. Barrier Cream changed globally last year (2016) due to the discontinuation of a key ingredient in our old formulation by our raw material supplier. You may want to try our Cetaphil Daily Advance as it also has shea butter or our Moisturizing Cream which provides 24 hour hydration.

Kristy, Edmonton, AB, May 30, 2017

I have elephant elbows which are wrinkly and dry. Most creams didn't really solve this problem but this cream actually made the some of the wrinkles go away and left me with a smoother elbow. I actually didn't recognize my elbow after about a week of use. The cream is not greasy and can be easily applied. I put it on right before bed and never had any problems.

Francis, Charlottetown, PE, May 29, 2017

Great product for people with dry skin. The skin soaks it up very nicely and I loved using it overnight. I highly recommend it!

Nandita, Milton , ON, May 24, 2017

I have been using it for the past week. It works great on my dry feet. I can already see an improvement. Not too heavy. Skin is smooth and soft.

Taylin, Cambridge, ON, May 23, 2017

For some reason my elbows are always dry during spring! This however made them smooth as a babies bottom! Breaks the barriers!

Harley, Brockville, ON, May 23, 2017

Love this product! Have been using this cream for a few days now and really love how it leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. Five stars

Rickie, Vancouver, BC, May 22, 2017

The new formula doesn't help to form a barrier on the skin. My kids have eczema, the old formula was very good for them. But the new one doesn't work. I'm so disappointed. You should keep the old formula product.

Ruined. New formula is greasy just like every other cream out there. Old formula was the best product out there for my chronic dry hands. Now, save your money and buy something else because the best feature (non greasy) is gone.
