I am neither a PR for Boots or Cerave, but I should be!

I just read on Caroline Hirons' blog that Cerave will be stocked in Boots from March.

Great news for those of us who have to buy on Amazon (the prices have been going up and up). Just thought I'd share.

Just looked it up!
In a nutshell, why do you like it please?

AdoraBell Wed 14-Feb-18 16:25:03

Never heard of it, what is it?

Serial123 Wed 14-Feb-18 16:32:11

It mainly does face wash and moisturiser. It's basic, but much less drying than Cetaphil. I find it good for acne prone skin. Also a reasonable price for the size of bottle if you are on a budget.

Serial123 Wed 14-Feb-18 16:32:46

I always used to see it recommended on MN, that's why I posted about it.

Oh. smile

MrMeeseeks Wed 14-Feb-18 19:57:39

Well I'm excited, OP, I love the PM moisturiser and it's been out of stock on Amazon for ages. Hurrah!

Serial123 Wed 14-Feb-18 20:39:48

MrMeeseeks great! Yes the pm moisturiser is fab.

DamnDeDoubtanceIsSpartacus Wed 14-Feb-18 20:45:05

Hurrah, love the pm cream, absorbs so quickly and nice ingredients.

Do you know if it’s cruelty free?

AnnaMagnani Wed 14-Feb-18 20:50:38

Cerave pm moisturiser is not basic! It's got great ingredients - ceramides and niacinamide and hyaluronic acid.

For a fraction of the price of some of the big brands selling ceramides or hyaluronic for £££

Blahblahblahyadayadayada Wed 14-Feb-18 20:54:34

Even the basic moisturising cream is quite good; the ceramides are good for skin. I wonder if the range will expand in future.

Serial123 Wed 14-Feb-18 21:00:51

Housework I don't know. I had a quick Google but it was all contradictory. Maybe check it out on the usual places you use to double check about products if you're cruelty free?

Anne apologies yes it isn't basic! I meant more it's not fancy in terms of packaging or formula or the usual bells and whistles rubbish.

This may save my marriage as American husband has been stealing mine and then forgot to repurchase for me on his recent trip home. angry

giddyupnow Wed 14-Feb-18 21:03:24

But yes, the pm one is THE GREATEST

Serial123 Wed 14-Feb-18 21:25:06

giddyupnow grin

rubybleu Wed 14-Feb-18 21:45:24

Sadly, in all the press stuff, they haven’t listed the PM lotion as one of the items they’re stocking. My husband will have to continue his Cerave-and-Aleve mulesing for me. I have two full bottles stockpiled at the moment!

giddyupnow Thu 15-Feb-18 10:41:57

But is there a good light day time one?

AdoraBell Thu 15-Feb-18 11:18:30

I will have a nosey then, thanks.

DamnDeDoubtanceIsSpartacus Thu 15-Feb-18 13:05:40

giddy - the pm lotion is light, matt and easily absorbed, most people use that as their day cream.

Blahblahblahyadayadayada Thu 15-Feb-18 16:58:48

I think they’re going to stock a daytime one with spf. I think it’s a chemical rather than mineral spf, if that matters to anyone.

MirandaCharlotte Thu 15-Feb-18 17:59:02

This is very good news!
I use the Cerave hydrating cleanser. I find it gentle and effective. Most importantly for me, it doesn't have isomethyl ionone in it. I'm allergic to it and any products containing it will set off contact dermatitis.
I've always had to get it (at a price) from Amazon or EBay so, hurrah! It should be easier to get hold of and Advantage card points as well!

Lonesurvivor Thu 15-Feb-18 20:08:21

I wonder will they do it in Boots Ireland?
What's the difference between chemical and mineral spf and is one better than the other?

Blahblahblahyadayadayada Thu 15-Feb-18 23:06:07

I don’t know if and when they’ll stock in boots in ireland. Does Boots UK ship to Ireland?

The mineral spf are the physical sunblock type of sunscreen; zinc oxide and titanium dioxide alone or in combination. The chemical ones absorb through the skin. I have rosacea so the mineral ones are generally better for me.

Is the eye cream going to be sold here?
