My Review

My review: I had high hopes of this moisturizer, but unfortunately it did not meet my expectations. It is a good basic moisturizer. But if you have dry skin like me, this won’t do much..

It is good if you need a quick fix or you and in a budget. But I think even you have a limited budget or you don’t want to spend too much the Cerave Moisturizer is way much better and a few bucks mor expensive.

How I used: On my morning skincare routine, after using my serum. Everyday

Why I liked the most: how fast my skin absorbed it.

How long did it last: 2 months

Pecas’s score: 2/5. Below average

Will but it again: no.


The company is working in their sustainability path and they have incorporated a few good changes like: Carbon neutral boxes, e-commerce packaging made with recycled and recyclable materials and In-store recycling program (from all beauty brands)

Sustainability score: 3/5

Where you can buy it: you can buy directly from Deciem page or Beauty skincare retail stores.
