Review – CeraVe PM




I first mentioned CeraVe PM in my ‘How to minimise irritation from daily shaving’ post and, as promised, here’s the review! This is a great drugstore find and something I recommend everybody try at least once. CeraVe PM is the latest release from the dermatologist recommended skincare line CeraVe and costs about $15.

Read on for the review!


CeraVe® Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM helps repair damaged skin and maintain the skin’s natural protective function with ingredients not commonly found in other moisturizers.  Its patented Multivesicular Emulsion (MVE®) technology releases theses ingredients over time, penetrating deep into the skin to hydrate and nourish.

CeraVe PM contains good amounts of both niacinamide and hyaluronic acid, these are two ingredients that you definitely want to look in to:
  • Niacinamide: This is a great multi-purpose ingredient, it can help to calm and soothe redness, even out skin tone, reduce acne and it’s excellent for repairing the skin barrier; this is great if you use topical acids, retinoids or simply if you have to shave often and you find your face gets more and more irritated with each consecutive shave.
  • Hyaluronic acid: Hyaluronic acid molecules retain a large amount of moisture, this makes it ideal as a moisturiser for skin as it provides an excellent amount of hydration without being too thick or greasy.
The product comes in a good-sized pump bottle which houses the light, almost gel-like moisturiser. Two pumps are enough to get your face and neck and will leave your skin feeling smooth, supple and not at all greasy. Use this in the morning before sunscreen or at night as a night cream, this is light and gentle enough to use even on the eye area. CeraVe products are typically formulated to be ultra gentle and non-clogging – the simple ingredients list reflects this – so don’t be afraid to give this a shot if your skin can tend to be a little bit picky.

Cerave PM is a great all-purpose moisturiser to have in your bathroom cabinet, definitely recommended. It’s light, it’s simple, contains proven ingredients and it does exactly what it promises! What’s not to love?

The only problem I have with this moisturiser is that it’s not available in the UK and I had to have a friend in the US send this over to me – sort it out CeraVe!

    which do you think is better for uneven skin tone, CeraVe PM or Nia24? my skin tone tends to be made up of red, brown, yellow patches and generally looks blotchy. i have a vit c serum, which i have started to use, would a niacinamide product help aswell. thank you

      @stevo - I'd say stick with the Vitamin C product and a good sunscreen for a few months first. If the pigmentation doesn't budge, use NIA24 at night!

    Apparently this product contains parabens - is that something to be concerned about ?
