Sebamed Moisturizing Cream Review

Hi Everyone,

With the onset of winters,a lot of you guys faced the problem of severe dryness,flakiness,peeling.It only got worse for people who are on acne treatments so there came the need for heavy duty moisturiser for oily-acne prone skin.My first option was Avene Skin Recovery Cream but it ain't easily available plus crazy expensive so I went for the next best option-Sebamed Moisturising Cream.So how well does it fare and will it come to rescue of dryness?Well then lets go ahead with the review.

3)A little on the pricier side.

Final Verdict:

Honestly I am scared of emollient creams mainly because of they tend to clog pores and cause breakouts which is why I tend to stick to gel formulations.But with demands of winter season and acne treatments,I needed a heavy duty moisturiser which is oil-free,non-comedogenic and heals all dryness/flakiness.So finally Sebamed moisturising cream came to that rescue.I was really surprised on how well it fared.Though it is heavy-duty moisturiser,it feels like light weight moisturiser.It does not clog pores or causes breakouts.It is does not make skin greasy or oily so it can be used all year round,just not winters.Definitely one of the best moisturisers I have used for oily-acne prone skin.Will I repurchase?-Surely,I am already on to my second tube!Overall I am happy with the product,I would say go for it!

My Rating:4/5
