Vanicream Moisturizing Skin Cream is likely at the top of the list of products recommended by any dermatologist, and for good reason.  The Vanicream brand uses clean technology meaning that their products are free of dyes, fragrance, lanolin, parabens, and formaldehyde and offers moisture without a greasy feel.  Almost every single one of my patients is given instructions to use Vanicream skin cream and they often wonder why I recommend it so much.

I personally use Vanicream skin cream head-to-toe (on me and on my children).  I find the formula to be perfect to add moisture to my skin without leaving me with a greasy feeling.  Some of the products I use on my face are very drying and mixing a small amount of Vanicream into my daytime and evening moisturizer provides just enough of a boost in moisture to prevent dryness.  This also makes a great body moisturizer and I find that I can massage extra Vanicream into dry areas (elbows, knees, etc) and it helps tremendously.  You will find a tub of Vanicream in almost every room of my house!

Vanicream for acne patients: Products that target acne and anti-aging often leave your skin very dry and can cause flaking.  Vanicream skin cream will not clog pores and is a great product to apply to help combat the drying effects of acne (and other skincare) products. 

Vanicream for eczema and sensitive skin: Eczema patients tend to have sensitive skin and need to use caution when applying cream or lotions as anything that contains fragrance, dyes or other unnecessary ingredients will cause burning and often won’t provide enough moisture to treat the symptoms.  Vanicream is perfect for sensitive skin and is a powerful moisturizer that will soothe and heal the skin. 

Vanicream for excessively dry skin: Hydrated skin is healthy skin and if you are not drinking enough water during the day it will show in your skin.  In the winter so many people suffer from dry, itchy skin related to humidity levels dropping.  While drinking enough water is essential for hydrated skin, Vanicream offers a boost of moisture and is a great addition to your winter skin time routine. 

Where to purchase Vanicream skin cream

A one pound container of Vanicream with a pump can be purchased from Target, Walgreens, or Amazon (affilate) and is relatively inexpensive.  If you do find that Vanicream skin cream is too heavy for your skin, you may prefer Vanicream Lite Lotion (affilate) that is targeted for sensitive skin. 

Beyond The Moisturizing Cream…


Vanicream makes more than just this wonderful tub of moisturizer and their other products deserve just as much attention.   In the winter I incorporate Vanicream bath oil (affilate) into my daily routine to help combat dryness and I have found that Vanicream face wash (affilate) is great for sensitive skin. 

If you are looking for a moisturizing cream that is ‘clean’, offers great hydration, and won’t break the bank, you cannot go wrong with Vanicream moisturizing skin cream (affilate)!
