One of the best-selling moisturizers around is a drugstore product that costs under $20.

It’s an understatement to say CeraVe is beloved. Anywhere you go, this product lines drugstore shelves — and there’s a reason why: Dermatologists love the stuff.

“CeraVe Moisturizing Cream is one of my all-time favorite body moisturizers,” says Dr. Shari Marchbein, Board Certified Dermatologist in NYC, tells Yahoo Lifestyle.

The moisturizing cream usually costs around $15 to $20, but right now you can score a fabulous deal at Ulta. If you buy one CeraVe product, you’ll get a second one for 40 percent off. There has never been a better time to stock up!

Dr. Marchbein notes that ceramides are a big part of what makes this formula such a standout among the rest.

“It contains ceramides — a lipid naturally found in skin — glycerin and hyaluronic acid, which packs a powerful punch of deep moisture and hydration,” she explains. “Together with cholesterol and fatty acids, ceramides are responsible for creating a healthy, intact skin barrier and retaining moisture in the skin.”

She adds, “As we age and with dry skin, levels of ceramides decrease, so using a moisturizer like this one can help restore the skin’s protective barrier and hydration.”

Dr. Marchbein also notes that the formula is non-comedogenic so you can use it on your body and face. “Ceramide-containing moisturizers can help with facial dryness and irritation from the use of retinoids for acne or anti-aging,” she says.

The reparative and moisturizing cream works best when it can really sink into the skin — and the optimal application time right after a shower.

“I recommend applying it liberally to the entire body within 60 seconds of coming out of the shower, while still damp,” advises Dr. Marchbein. “It can be used on the face 1 to 2 times per day if you need an extra boost of hydration.”
