This moisturiser is also known under the name ‘Cetaphil Pro Moisturising Night Cream’, that’s the name chosen for the European market. I’ve purchased this product from Amazon, and for some reason, they sell the American version in Europe. There are no formula differences, though.
This product is a well-formulated moisturiser ideal for dry and redness-prone skin types, but in reality, everyone can use it for whittling down reddening and sensitivity. It contains a typical mix of barrier-repairing, emollient ingredients and much-loved ceramide NP & niacinamide. The latter is also known to reduce hyperpigmentation. What’s more, we can find here, hydration-boosting hyaluronic acid, redness-reducing and skin-brightening liquorice root extract. Along with the rest, the formula includes soothing allantoin and panthenol. All of the ingredients render the moisturiser an excellent choice not only for protecting the skin barrier and diminishing redness but also for decreasing hyperpigmentation. The formula is free of fragrance, non-comedogenic, and suitable for all skin types.
This moisturiser has a lightweight, pleasing to the touch texture. It feels ungreasy and absorbs fairly quickly. The inclusion of sunflower oil and shea butter eliminates the necessity for a separate facial oil, which spares you from ending up with a shiny-looking face. The oils will provide a protective layer from cold and will lock-in moisture better. This product is emollient enough to be used on its own. Despite the name, the product can be used day and night, in fact, it would be better to use it twice a day as you’d get all the wholesome ingredients more frequently, resulting in faster results.
My skin loves this moisturiser. It hydrates and soothes my skin, and it helps to reduce redness and hyperpigmentation. It’s like a calming blanket for skin without the need for unctuous potions. It has never caused any issues, and it has become my go-to moisturiser. The only thing that I don’t like about this product is the packaging; sometimes the pump doesn’t push out the cream. I think that a simple, squeeze-out tube would be a better option.
Overall, it’s a fantastic moisturiser full of skin-benefiting ingredients that work together to moisturise, strengthen, and calm aggravated skin. On top of the main functions of the moisturiser, it can also help to brighten hyperpigmentation. I highly recommend this moisturiser, it’s suitable for all skin types, and it’s an ideal product for winter, and not only.
