CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Review

Manufacturer’s Claim

Today we review AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion manufactured by CeraVe. This product is a daily moisturizing lotion that helps to protect your skin by incorporating sunscreen into its formula. It claims to help moisturize and hydrate dry and acne prone skin. It also claims to be suitable for all skin types.  It makes use of a lightweight and non-greasy formula to help your skin look brighter and healthier. If you are on the lookout for a new moisturizing lotion then this product might be perfect for you. Read the rest of this review for a more detailed overview concerning this product.


  • Homosalate
  • Meradimate
  • Octinoxate
  • Octocrylene
  • Zinc Oxide

This product is fragrance-free and can be used on sensitive skin. Homosalate is an organic compound that can be found in most sunscreens and is used as a chemical UV filter. Studies have found that this ingredient may impact hormones and increase the absorption of pesticides in the body. Meradimate, Octocrylene and Octinoxate are also used as UV filters. Zinc Oxide reduced inflammation and helps the skin to produce new cells. It seems as if most active ingredients in this product is aimed at reducing skin damage from the sun instead of actually benefiting your skin. Although the active ingredients seem potent they are not patented like so many ingredients that leading skin care companies use.


After thorough research, we were not able to find proper instructions of how best to apply this product. Without this knowledge customers might end up using much or too little product.


You can purchase this product from most 3rd party online retailers. Each lotion bottle will cost you $20 and contains 3 oz of product. CeraVe’s website does offer a coupon with the product but when clicking on the link it informs you that the offer is currently suspended. Unfortunately, there are no further discounts available.


We were unable to find any customer guarantee on the manufacturer’s website which means that one will have to rely on the guarantee policies of 3rd party websites. Unfortunately this shows a lack of confidence in this product’s abilities and provides little peace of mind to new customers. Amazon normally provides a 30-day guarantee policy on most of its products, so we recommend that you make your purchase there.

CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion Review – The Bottom Line

In general this is not a bad product if you want to provide some protection for your skin whilst keeping it hydrated. Skin types that are especially prone to sunburn could potentially benefit from using this product. We like that this product is widely available everywhere and that it contains 5 active ingredients. However, some of the ingredients do have negative side effects that can affect your hormones. We also feel that this product is a bit expensive when compared to similar products on the market especially since it does not come with a discount. The lack of proper application instructions may also cause customers to not get the maximum amount of benefits out of this moisturizer.
