  • A: Hello Aa, Thank you for your interest in CeraVE SA Cream For Rough and Bumpy Skin, Moisturizer Unscented-12 oz.

I have keratosis pilaris on my legs and am VERY prone to ingrown hairs. After just a week of daily use I already noticed improvement with keratosis pilaris as well as ingrown hairs. Been using about a month now and results keep getting better! It is slightly sticky after application but nothing too off putting and dries quickly.

This cream drastically help improve my skin texture. When the seasons change my skin flakes up. It does not have a scent so it does not aggravate my skin. The packaging is effective so I don’t overuse this product. I keep this cream all year around.

This CeraVe cream helps with smoothing the tiny bumps I have on my upper arms and neck area. It feels very moisturizing and is fragrance free. I only use it once or twice a week, and it is enough to keep my bumpy skin looking smooth for a few days. It comes with a good amount that will last.

RICH AND THICK LOTION

simbareviews - 3 months ago

I would just like to say I really enjoy Cerave as a brand overall, it has very clean ingredients and works great for me. This lotion has helped with the tiny bumps that I get on my forearms, they are really tiny and this has smoothed my arm out. The best combination is using the SA body wash and following up with the SA cream, right out of the shower. This lotion has a thick texture which makes me feel extra moisturized as well. Overall, great product and great brand!

I used this for around 3 months in combination with the body wash without any improvement of my KP. I will say that this cream is unscented and feels much lighter than those of other brands for rough and bumpy skin. If you’re looking to simply moisturize then this is great but for other skin issues then this will probably not help.
