Review: Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream (For Buttery Soft Skin)

For those of us with the most parched, dry skin, especially during cold winter months, we often search for anything and everything to repair patches, redness, and flakes, and with Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream, those of us with the driest skin has finally met our match.

Have you ever found yourself slathering on oil or serum, or overusing product, just because your skin was so dehydrated?

Luckily, there are creams designed for very dry skin types to address dehydration without leaving the skin feeling sticky or greasy.

If you feel like you are overusing serums, products, and oils, and still feeling dry- or if you are experiencing flakes and patches that become irritating or create dullness, a richer cream like Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream is supercharged with 5-cera complex.

This leaves even the driest skin feeling soft, rich, and supple after use.

Designed for even the most sensitive skin, Ceramidin Cream feels smooth and creamy to apply and actually works to treat even the dullest and dry complexions.

Review: Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream

As someone who has always suffered from dry and sensitive skin prone to flaking, redness, and dry patches (that often cling to makeup products), there are a lot of challenges in dealing with this problem.

Before we begin, make sure you’re ordering Dr. Jart from a legitimate retailer, NOT from a counterfeit seller. For your convenience, here is the Amazon link to an authentic Dr. Jart retailer.

First of all, finding the perfect creams, serums, and/or oils to use is a challenge alone.

Second, not overusing them in an attempt to fully hydrate is often draining to your bank account and you end up wasting product over time.

So after a friend recommended Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream for my dry and dehydrated skin, promising it would save on money and save my skin at the same time, I took her words of advice (along with the strong user reviews online).

For my fellow readers suffering from dry skin, irritation, redness, product overuse in an attempt to fix this, and general discomfort, Dr. Jart’s moisturizer provides immediate relief.

While it is rich and silky in texture and fully softens and hydrates the skin, it still doesn’t feel greasy or weigh you down, and you can still use it in the morning before applying makeup.

It’s also perfect for those with sensitive skin and even eczema, and alleviates patches and scales.

The best part about the use of this cream? How long it actually lasted, because I was able to use it normally and still feel hydrated.

This product deserves a perfect score for the treatment of very dry skin, and leaves your skin looking more radiant and glowing.

How To Use Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream

Use Ceramidin Cream either after your regular cleanser or after a serum or oil treatment (as your last step), and gently warm the product in your hands prior to application for a smoother application and better absorption. If used in the AM, you can follow with your regular makeup routine.

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream Ingredients & Benefits

For those of us with very sensitive skin, paying close attention to the ingredients contained in skincare products can be just as important as reading labels on food packages sometimes (and making sure there aren’t any known allergies).

Here is a look at some key ingredients in Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin moisturizing cream and its benefits with use:

5-Cera Complex

Patented and unique to Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream, 5-Cera Complex is designed to strengthen and moisturize the skin, even for the most parched and dehydrated types.

From the manufacturer, “Ceramides are our skin’s natural protection barrier. They are composed of intercellular lipids that act as skin’s defense against environmental aggressors and maintain moisture levels. Think of your skin as a brick wall: when it is first built, it is strong and sturdy. Over time, it needs fortification to remain strong. As we age, we lose ceramides, leading to a decrease in elasticity and moisture.”

In other words, this advanced complex supports anti-aging benefits, firms the skin, and provides deep hydration.

Dr. Jart Money-Back Guarantee

If you have very sensitive skin (or price barriers are a concern) or have not used Dr. Jart products in the past, the return and exchange policy in this case may be a highly important factor for you.

The manufacturer, Dr. Jart, has a strong return and exchange policy that honors full refunds upon dissatisfaction or allergy, and this policy favors the consumer, both new and returning.

If you are dissatisfied with the use of Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream, or if it does not work for your skin to provide suitable hydrating skincare and cosmetic benefits, or you experience any product allergy or reaction to the formulation, you may elect to return it at any time.

In this case, you will receive a full refund equal to the entire purchase price of the item.

In this case, the formulation of the moisturizer (as with most Dr. Jart products I have tried in the past) was gentle enough to use even with very sensitive and acne-prone skin and did not cause any irritation or breakouts, but due to any personal sensitivity concerns this policy may help assuage fears, as individual allergies are highly variable. But this product is designed with the most sensitive skin in mind.

Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream: Worth It?

For all of us ladies and gents suffering from dry, sensitive, and dull skin, Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin moisturizing cream is 100% worth it, and truly does the job.

When you’re experiencing really parched or dehydrated skin and overusing products to dry and compensate, or if you are sensitive and trying to find products to hydrate that won’t break you out, this product lives up to its hype- and then some.

Out of all of the creams and moisturizers I have tried, it’s definitely one of my personal faves, and if a friend with dry and sensitive skin asked for a recommendation, this would make the top of my list.

Dr. Jart’s collection of skincare products (from masks to kits to serums) is excellent in general, but for those with very parched skin who have run out of options, this is an ideal cream that leaves you feeling soft and refreshed.

Absolutely recommended, worthy of its hype, and leaves the skin buttery soft!
