CeraVe Moisturizing Cream

Best Budget Eczema Cream

Why people love it

  • Great for dry skin 
  • An awesome moisturizer 
  • Soft, not sticky or greasy  

Not only was this designed with the help of dermatologists, but it’s often recommended by them as a moisturizer for very dry skin as well as an eczema treatment. 

Some users find this a little thick and difficult to spread – and it’s not specifically formulated as an eczema treatment.


This is an amazing moisturizer – and that’s what it’s designed to do. The dermatologists that created it haven’t marketed it as an eczema treatment, but it does just that. It works to clear flare-ups and add plenty of moisture to the skin.

In addition to the super price, you can expect this eczema cream to go on smooth and relieve the itchiness of dry skin. Almost surprisingly, it’s not too strong for naturally oily skins. Sadly, it’s got some parabens in the formula which may help your skin but makes some people unhappy.

What’s inside (and what isn’t)? You will find the ultra-useful ceramides and hyaluronic in here. But, you’ll also find plenty of parabens. You win some and you lose some.

Who’s it for? It’s the perfect lotion for those with sensitive skins that aren’t too dry.

Consistency and fragrance? The thickness of this lotion is tempered by the pump dispenser. That said, you’ll notice the thickness on the first application. It’s also unscented.

Will it break the bank? Obviously not or we wouldn’t note it as our budget pick. But, for reference, a jar of this costs about $12 and contains 16 ounces. Yep, it’s 75 cents per ounce or about half the amount of our top fave – and it’s also available on Subscribe & Save.
