    This small collection of skin-care products keeps things gentle and effective with fragrance-free formulas that can be considered more state-of-the-art than any product in its price range or pricier versions at the drugstore. CeraVe uses a delivery system the company refers to as Multivesicular Emulsion Technology, which releases key ingredients such as ceramides (they actually include three different ceramides; I, III, and VI which is rather unique and great for skin) and hyaluronic acid over a period of several hours. Although this technology is undoubtedly helpful, such time-delayed delivery systems aren’t unique to CeraVe, and the fact remains that most of the ingredients they use are very helpful on their own, no matter what delivery system you use. The important point is that ongoing, consistent use of this kind of moisturizer designed to repair the skin’s barrier function will result in smoother, softer, healthier skin. An interesting element for this product is the inclusion of phytosphingosine. It is an ingredient research shows is effective in regulating damaged or diseased epithelial cells. It seems this ingredient can be a cell- communicating ingredient, albeit one that is best for compromised skin. However, given CeraVe is positioned for those struggling with psoriasis, eczema, or rosacea, that’s a great addition. (Source: Journal of Investigative Dermatology October 2003, pages 1135–1137).

    I like her, but her dry skin stuff doesn't sink in enough to put makeup on. Even if I put on a mattifier on afterward it's still kinda iffy. Especially because I use mineral make-up.
