Cerave products for oily skin

cerave products for oily skin

Cerave is a skincare brand you’re probably familiar with due to how popular it got over the past few years. During the lockdown, Cerave products trended all over the web, especially on TikTok because of how well creators claim they worked and I just had to try some out myself. I wasn’t disappointed, at all.


The reason why I am writing a whole post about Cerave products for oily skin is that I truly love them and all the wonders that they have done for my skin. Did I mention how their products can be found everywhere and the prices are reasonable?

In today’s post, I will be sharing top products from Cerave for oily skin that are worth the hype that is also wonderful for those with combination skin. Honestly, Cerave can take all my money.

Without any further delay, let’s get into it.

 Cerave products for oily skin that are Worth the Hype


Pm facial moisturizing lotion

cerave facial moisturizing lotion

This is one of the best moisturizing lotions I have used. It has an addition of 4% niacinamide which increased skin hydration and helps barrier function. It also increases collagen productions, has anti-aging and anti-wrinkling benefits. This lotion is perfect for anyone dealing with hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration. It has a gel-cream consistency and spread easily across skin leaving no oily residue which makes it perfect for those with oily skin.


Cerave repair eye cream

One of my favorite thing about this eye cream is that it comes in a tube packaging which makes it more hygienic. It has amazing skincare ingredients like ceramides, hyaluronic, and niacinamide. It works great at addressing dark circles, puffiness, and brightening the eye area. A lot of people complain that it’s very lightweight but that’s another thing I like about it. It doesn’t irritate the eyes at all and it works beautifully under makeup.

Cerave foaming facial cleanser

This is one of the best cleansers for oily skin. It cleans your face so well without drying it. The cleanser has 3 essential ceramides that cleanse and removes oil without disrupting the protective skin barrier. It is fragrance-free and non-irritating. I love how simple the packaging is and it is definitely worth the $15 because a bottle can last for 5 months that is even if you’re using it day and night.


Cerave renewing SA cleanser

I decided to try this out when I saw how everyone was raving about it on TikTok. I don’t regret this purchase. It contains salicylic acid which exfoliates, softens, and smoothens skin. This is truly one of the best BHA cleansers that don’t leave the skin feeling stripped. It has a fragrance-free formula with 3 types of ceramides to condition the skin and also niacinamide which helps to fade acne scars. Another great thing I love about it is how it has a clear packaging that allows you to see how much product you still have remaining.


Cerave ultra-light moisturizing lotion SPF 30

This is one of the best moisturizers for oily skin with sunscreen. And guess what? It has a matte finish and doesn’t leave any white cast. As a black girl, that was a dream come true. The lotion has a nice consistency and the price is reasonable. The only problem is the pump can be annoying at first. You need to press it about 20 times before anything comes out on first use. But you will get used to it. I’m so in love with this product and I’m glad I came across it. (Thank you TikTok)

Cerave Resurfacing Retinol Serum

A derivative of vitamin A, Retinol helps refine and resurface the skin to improve the appearance of texture and uneven skin tone.
CeraVe Resurfacing Serum contains retinol to help reduce the appearance of post-acne marks and visible pores over time.  It helps with acne scarring, shrinks your pores, and really helps with evening out your skin tone. Its key ingredients include ceramides, licorice root extract, and niacinamide which all work together amazingly.

Cerave Renewing foot cream


If your leg is always cracking and rough, you need to get this foot cream. It’s fast-absorbing and fragrance-free. It’s very gentle, fragrance-free and it has a non-greasy formula. The key ingredients include ceramide, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid, and ammonium lactate. I use it twice a day in the morning and at night before bed and my feet are so soft, smooth, and good looking.

Cerave SA lotion for Rough and Bumpy skin

This is also another great cerave moisturizer for oily skin. CeraVe Renewing SA Lotion has a unique lightweight formula that exfoliates and moisturizes while helping to restore the protective skin barrier. Salicylic acid exfoliates and softens to smooth rough skin, lactic acid exfoliates to renew skin’s surface, and three essential ceramides (1, 3, 6-II) help to restore the protective skin barrier.
It’s fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic, and gentle. For the price, I think it’s worth and if you suffer from polarises, then this might be the product for you.

Cerave Healing Ointment

The CeraVe Healing Ointment provides intense, long-lasting moisturization and helps protect, soothe, and relieve extremely dry chapped and chafed skin. CeraVe Healing Ointment combines a non-greasy feel with skin-identical ceramides. If you are suffering from serious dryness, especially on your hand, elbows, feet, etc you should try this product! The only downside about the tube version is that when it’s about to finish, it’s difficult to get the remaining product out. However, you can avoid such problems but getting the tub version.


Cerave Skin Renewing Gel oil

CeraVe Skin Renewing Gel Oil is an anti-aging face moisturizer that hydrates dry skin, boosts radiance, and replenishes the skin barrier with ceramides. It’s ideal for normal to dry skin and can be used alone or with a moisturizer.  It’s is an amazing product if you are looking for something that will deeply moisturize your skin without clogging your pores and some extra glow!

Top 2 Cerave products for oily skin + skincare tracker

Out of the Cerave products for oily skin I mentioned above, if you were to ask me what are my absolute favorites, I will go with the Cerave foaming facial cleanser and the Cerave ultra-light moisturizing lotion with SPF 30. I will never get tired of recommending these.

Another thing to remember is that skincare is not one week or one-month thing. you need to be consistent before you see the result you want. I love to use this skincare tracker to keep me consistent with my skincare routine. It’s very cheap and really gets the work done. Ever since I started using it, I became super consistent with my skincare application.
