Cetaphil RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Body Wash and Moisturizer Formulated for Eczema Review

Hello Everyone!

 My apologies for the missing pictures. My pictures were accidentally deleted off my blog. Please Refer to my Instagram account miss_pilar to view the pictures (or some of the pictures) that were deleted.  
*This is a sponsored post by Cetaphil. The only item I purchased in the post is the full sized bottle of the Cetaphil RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Body Wash (located near the end of my post). All opinions are my own. 

Today I have a review on two Cetaphil products that helps Eczema prone skin. (See First Impressions Post)

What is Eczema?

Eczema is defined a group of skin conditions that cause skin to become red, irritated, and itchy. However, some people have Eczema that is more severe which can cause patches of skin to become moist, cracked, and infected etc. Did you know that October is Eczema Awareness Month??

I've dealt with slight Eczema since off and on since I was about seven years old on my elbows (due to allergies). I feel fortunate that my Eczema isn't too bad. The only issues I have with Eczema is dry skin and irritation on my elbows from time to time. I try to use fragrance free products on my elbows to prevent these issues.

Now on to the reviews.

Cetaphil RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Body Wash


About the Product and Claims

- Clinically proven to provide non-irritating and moisture-enhancing cleansing, while soothing the dry, itchy, skin symptoms associated with eczema-prone skin

- Patented cleansing technology offers rich suds that preserve skin hydration, leaving skin soft and smooth

- Advanced Filaggrin technology helps moisturize as it cleanses

- Safe even for babies as young as three months

- Paraben Free and Steroid Free

- Seal of Acceptance by the National Eczema Association (NEA)

My Thoughts

I really like the results when I use this product on my skin. This sample size was enough to use on my elbows and the formula is so creamy. After my shower my elbows were so soft. This body wash is also fragrance and soap free so my elbows weren't irritated. I don't have any children yet, but I think it's great that Cetaphil provides this product for babies as young 3 months old since Eczema issues can impact anyone, young or old. I purchased a full size bottle of this body wash after I used all the sample size bottle. I plan on using this as a part of my general skin care regimen to continue to keep my elbows moisturized. I highly recommend this body wash if you have any sort of Eczema problems.

Cetaphil RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Moisturizer


Now I have the next review on the Cetaphil RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Moisturizer that is recommended along with the body wash.

About the Product and Claims

- Unique combination of patented ceramide and Filaggrin technology that’s clinically proven to help strengthen skin’s protective layer

- Helps restore skin moisture

- Safe even for babies as young as three months

My Thoughts

This is another product that is a hit for me! Over the past few weeks I can tell a difference in my skin. Like I mentioned earlier, I have slight eczema on my elbows and I try to keep them moisturized. This is probably the best product I've used on my elbows this far in my life. Even though I haven't had many issues with Eczema lately, but that doesn't mean I should neglect my skin care for it. I like that this moisturizer is long lasting and not greasy. I really appreciate moisturizers that I don't have to continually reapply on my skin. This moisturizer is very soothing on my skin throughout the day. I typically use this for best results after I've had my shower. I also like the sample bottle Cetaphil sent because I can refill it and keep it in my purse. After using this RestoraDerm Skin Restoring Moisturizer, I recommend this product as well.


* Here is the full size body wash. This was purchased with my own money.

Announcement: All throughout October, I will include the links for two issues that are very important that I blogged about last year...Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer. Check those posts out as well!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I've seen this brand on the selves a lot but have never tried it. The body wash sounds good though, I probably will give that a go once my current body wash finishes.

I've only used a couple of things from Cetaphil, but they are so good for troubled skin. I would really like to try the body wash, especially once it gets cold. It sounds like something I could use.

I will love to try this product sound amazing I love their facial cleanser.

Marie said...

Great review! I use Cetaphil products too, but I haven't tried these. I think the lotion and body wash you showed would be good for this time of year since skin can feel dry due to the cooler weather. I would like to try these products!

Unknown said...

I need to try these!! My hands get super dry and irritated from washing them a million times a day and all the chemicals we use at my work. Great review Pilar, I'm glad you're enjoying all this Cetaphil stuff!

A lady I worked with suffered from eczema, so I understand what you go through. I didn't know Cetaphil had a body wash! So going out and getting this when I get back home. I love their facial products. Thanks Pilar!

Pilar said...

I didn't know about these products until the Cetaphil team told me about their line of products for Eczema prone skin. These products are good for sensitive skin as well! The body wash is simply amazing!

Pilar said...

I agree! Cetaphil products are great for so many different skin issues. I like using both the body wash and moisturizer in general. l find that using these products help prevent skin issues as well!

Pilar said...

I highly recommend them!

Pilar said...

Thank you! I agree these products are good for any time during the year, but especially during the colder months!

Pilar said...

Thank you! I think you could benefit from using the moisturizer because it helps a lot with keeping skin moisturized. Since your hands get dry from constantly washing them, I think you'd see a difference if you use the moisturizer! I'm really enjoying all the products!

Pilar said...

You're welcome! I'm fortunate because my Eczema on my elbows isn't too bad or that noticeable. I only suffer from dryness and irritation on my elbows from time to time. I didn't even know allergies could cause Eczema! I think it's wonderful there are affordable moisturizers and body washes such as Cetaphil that help with Eczema. I know there are some people who have Eczema really badly and are embarrassed, but they shouldn't be because there are treatments out there for skin issues! Dermatologist even approve these products!

These products sound amazing. I need to find out if I get them in Germany.

Pilar said...

Thank you! These are some amazing products!

Beth said...

Great reviews! Both products sound amazing! I would like to use these products during the cold weather

Pilar said...

Thank you! I can tell a difference in my skin since using both products! Since it will get colder in many regions, I think these products will work great to help with dry skin and keep skin moisturized!
