One of the easiest ways to keep your skin looking its best is to use moisturizer. While some of us think to only moisturize our face and body when we notice dryness, moisturizing daily is one of the best ways to prevent skincare problems from occurring, including painful ailments like eczema and psoriasis.

"It works great," she wrote of the cream, adding that it was scent-free and "really helped" get rid of his dry skin. 

Some Amazon shoppers have noted that CeraVe's cream does need to be massaged into the skin to avoid a white residue but largely take issue with the price of the 19 oz container. At $33, CeraVe's cream is pricier than some of the other products on the market, however trying the travel size for $6 is a great way to test the moisturizer before you invest in a larger container. 

Verdict

CeraVe's Moisturizing Cream is a great addition to your bathroom counter if you're looking for something that's dermatologist approved and affordable. If you're hesitant to invest in the larger container, the travel size is a great way to try the product and keep with you in your purse, bag or car to apply as needed to the body.
