CeraVe beauty products were recommended by our dermatologist about ten years ago, and I used them for years because they worked well for my skin. I had a facial with Caudalie products about four years ago which felt really good. So I switched from CeraVe to Caudalie beauty products and used them until last month, when I switched back to CeraVe.

I have pale, normal to dry skin that is not acne prone, but is quite sensitive in other ways. I’ve already seen the dermatologist twice this year, which is uncommon. First because of perioral dermatitis around the corner of my mouth, and second because of a rash eruption on my forehead and the side of my cheeks. Thankfully all is sorted and my skin looks just fine again. I suspect that some of it had to do with stress.

I did, though, take my recent skin irritations as a sign to switch back to CeraVe facial beauty products, and that is all I’m using for now. They are fragrance free, paraben-free, really gentle, and made in the US. My dermatologist is a big fan of CeraVe products, and that’s all the reassurance I need.

You can buy CeraVe at the drugstore, and prices won’t break the bank. These are the exact items I’m currently using. I use all the products daily, except for the vitamin C serum, which I use a few times a week. Please read the labels carefully. Some of the products contain oxtinoxate and octocrylene, which do not irritate my skin, but might irritate yours.

I don’t change my beauty products or try new beauty products often. Some, like Nivea body lotion, I’ve been using all my life. I seem to change my facial beauty products every four to five years, for varying reasons. Sometimes it’s because of a skin irritation, and sometimes because I think something better has come along. How about you? How often do you change your facial beauty regimen?
