Cetaphil Healthy Glow Daily Cream is a mid-weight moisturizer for normal to dry skin. It does not contain SPF and does have some fragrance.

This is a very good moisturizer for normal to dry skin. The problematic ingredient is the fragrance used, which can be sensitizing for some. See CosDNA: http://cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_79a6543557.html. There are also preservatives, but I don’t have a problem with those ingredients. The ingredient list has glycerin, a moisturizer, high on the list. There is also hyaluronic acid, niacinimide, squalane and Vitamin E, though in unknown concentrations.
When I used the cream at night, I woke up with my skin feeling well hydrated overall, but my cheeks felt a little dry. I did not notice any particular reaction in my t-zone, which is where I am prone to having a breakout. I did have some reactivity in using the cream with my tretinoin where my skin stung after application. I assume that had to do with the fragrance rather than other ingredients. I think you can use this moisturizer year round, but those with extra dry skin will not find it sufficient in the colder and dryer months.
I am disappointed that it is sold in jar packaging, which is unnecessary. Cetaphil could have opted for a tube like many of its other moisturizers and avoided the oxidation and contamination issues that come with jar packaging.
My overall opinion is that this is a good option for the drug store and as an affordable moisturizer for normal to dry skin.
Cost is $20.99 for 1.7 oz or $12.35/oz.
