Our Concern: What struck us at first was a similar problem seen with the Aveeno Eczema Therapy™, here we have another huge skincare company with a formula built around a single ingredient rather than using their resources to jam-pack the formula with as many moisturizers, anti-inflammatories, and anti-allergens as possible. Secondly, we immediately noticed three different types of alcohol in the formula, which lead us to several reviews of intense pain and irritation upon application. Many of the reported discomforts were from parents noticing their infant or child reacted negatively, so this might be a problem for those with lower pain thresholds; however, it was worth consideration in ranking Cetaphil™ as our #5 treatment.

"had high hopes" (*Results May Vary)

Posted on by Rosie W.


I had high hopes for this lotion. Based on the reviews I really hoped that it would help my daughters eczema. Instead it's just been okay. I apply this to her skin twice a day. I've been using it for almost a month in conjunction with the Cetaphil Restoraderm body wash. It seemed to work pretty good at first. Her skin was pretty receptive to the lotion and it did soften the rough spots and made the rest of her skin soft to the touch, however when I applied it to her face it made the patches on her face redder. So I stopped applying it to her face and just applied to to her body. Recently, I've had to stop using it after baths because she writhes in pain when I rub it on her and her dry patches turned redder. From this reaction I have to assume it's causing a burning sensation. I have tried everything from organic to Aquaphor. And nothing seems to eradicate the problem, so I continue to use this in the mornings and a different lotion after baths that doesn't burn when I apply. After this is gone I won't buy anymore.

"Good on mild cases" (*Results May Vary)

Posted on by Garry H.


I bought this after sampling the same product from the doctor's office for my 5 month old who has sever eczema. It worked great for about three weeks, but his skin is now so dry that the lotion stings when I apply it. I'd rank this as sufficient for mild-medium eczema but not recommended for severe winter eczema on dry rough skin. Baby doesn't like it! (*Results May Vary)

"It’s cheap and works ok" (*Results May Vary)

Posted on by Cassandra L.


I bought this upon recommendation by a dermatologist for my son's severe dry skin. It's ok but I would have expected it to be better. It doesn't moisturize any better then some other lotions we've used, no worse either. (*Results May Vary)

"too expensive." (*Results May Vary)

Posted on by Cassandra L.


Didn't know I was getting this. Scanned my baby's body wash bottle and didn't catch it linked to lotion. I wouldn't intentionally or unintentionally buy this again. Way too expensive too! (*Results May Vary)

"burns..." (*Results May Vary)

Posted on by Cassandra L.


This lotion works great, when I can get my daughter to use it.

For an eczema lotion, why in the world does it burn super-irritated skin??!! (*Results May Vary)
