Part of the reason I think I love beauty products so much is I am a bit of an adrenaline junkie. There is a huge rush that comes from combing the drugstore aisles and finding extremely inexpensive products that end up being worth their weight in gold. One line that is indeed a goldmine is CeraVe. Two of my favorite products that I highly recommend are the Healing Ointment ($22) and the Foaming Facial Cleanser ($13). PR samples
The ingredients are about 50% petrolatum, or what you find in Vaseline. Also included are hydrating mineral oil, silicone, and waxes that give dry, cracked skin the major hit of moisture that it needs. And there is more! It also has hyaluronic acid and ceramides, which repair skin. All of these ingredients make for soft, healed skin. This healing ointment is fragrance-free, which is awesome. It does leave skin kind of tacky, although I would say less so than Vaseline does, but it really is a wonder for cracked, dry skin.
