Holy Grail Skincare ~ my favorite CeraVe products ~ cruelty free

Thanks for tuning into my channel. I had a subscriber ask me for some Holy Grail videos. This is the first one of what I hope will be a series. This first one is just skincare products from CeraVe, which are my favorite products ~ even when I switch around my products, I always go back to CeraVe. I have some very bad dermatitis issues in the past, which is why I started using this product line. I started with just the regular moisturizer and eventually expanded to the entire product line – they do have a new night cream, but I’m not sure I need that.

Watch my YouTube video


Here are the products I talked about in the video, along with the average price. I just stocked up at CVS and then Ulta, when both were running buying one get one half off sales. If you start with just a couple products, you can slowly expand to the others as your budget allows. Buying everything at once can be very pricey.

Here are the products, the prices are from Ulta - everything is slightly cheaper on CVS.com

Hydrating Cleanser - 12 oz $12.99
Foaming Facial Cleanser - 12 oz 12.99
Skin Renewing Cream Serum - 1 oz $16.99
Eye Repair Cream - 0.5 oz $13.99
Facial Moisturizing Lotion AM with SPF 30 - 3 oz $14.99
Facial Moisturizing Lotion PM - 3 oz $13.99
Moisturizing Lotion - 12 oz $14.99
Moisturizing Cream - 12 oz $15.99

Beauty boxes I subscribe to – purchased a full year membership to Goodbeing & Lip Monthly (had deeply discounted prices). I’ll still be getting the other three boxes every month in addition to yearly subscriptions:

Ipsy - generous sample size and sometimes full size items, great box
Boxycharm - my favorite box, all full size items worth over $100
Lip Monthly - 4-5 full size items with 1 item that is not for lips, great bag
GoodBeing Box - this is one of my new favorite boxes
Sephora Play Beautifully – Just made it off the wait list, not sure how long I’ll get this box

Recently cancelled:
Kloverbox
Allure Beauty Box
Birchbox - a great starter box where you can discover great products and occasionally get a full size item

Freebie sites I belong to:

Influenster – when you first join you are more likely to get a box than later on; I almost never
BzzAgent – they politely ask you if you want to join a campaign, I get more from this site than Influentster

I don't think cerave is cruelty free. I received a sample and researched cerave. I can't find them on any cruelty free list. Even their website says nothing about being cruelty free :(

I you look to my cruelty free vs not cruelty free page here on this website - look to the right panel, you can scroll down to CeraVe and see where I found the cruelty free sources (2 of them). One is Logical Harmony, companies don't make her list without proving that they are cruelty free. I trust her implicitly.
