The Battle of… MOISTURIZERS: Aveeno vs. Cerave

By: LatinoChiko

Welcome back to another battle for our “Battle of the…” series!

Its LatinoChiko here!

I am honored and excited to be here and share my experiences and tips!

First, I would like to acknowledge that I identify as a male. I do not participate in the art of make up, but I do like to keep good hygiene, as everyone should. Males are socialized differently, so they don’t think they need to take care of their body, skin, body odor, etc. We tend to forget about hygiene!!That is why I was more than excited to bring in my voice to a female run magazine! .

For today’s double-reviews, it is the battle of…MOISTURIZERS!!

Today, I am reviewing Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer and Cerave’s Facial Moisturizing Lotion.

In the following review, you will find out who wins this battle!


Growing up (and to this day), I would get really bad acne breakouts. During my high school years, I had to hop on the Accutane antibiotics. After almost a year of treatment, my skin looked WAAAAAY better. But my skin was super dry when I took this prescription. I had to find a good moisturizer, something that would last me for a few hours. Moisturizing your skin is absolutely important!

for this reason, the reviews today comes from my own need to find the moisturizer that works for my skin that is very sensitive and extremely acne-prone.

Today, I am reviewing Aveeno’s Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer ($13.78 on Amazon) and Cerave’s Facial Moisturizing Lotion ($12.57 on Amazon).The moisturizers are easy to apply.


Before I review both moisturizers seperately, I would like to point out their similarities. The moisturizers are easy to apply. Because they do have a bit of sunscreen, you just need to blend it into the skin a bit more to hide the sunscreen. Your moisturizers should ALWAYS have sunscreen, no matter your skin tone, because the sun ages you!

Now, let’s see how they did on their own!



  • With a dime amount of this product, it can cover your entire face.
  • This product will last a while and it is easily accessible. It can be found online and in most drug stores.


  • My skin is moisturized, but it leaves skin super oily, even with a small amount of it used.
  • I guess it is radiant, but in bad ways… LOL!…At least for me…



  • It is more affordable than the other moisturizer.
  • This product is oil free, so it doesn’t leave your skin looking oily. My skin is naturally oily, but this product minimizes how shiny it gets.
  • My skin is super soft, even after a few hours of usage.


  • This product does have sunscreen, so I just need to blend it into my skin a bit more compared to other moisturizers I have used.
  • No other no complaints!


And the winner is…

The Cerave Facial Moisturizing Lotion!!!!

My skin is super soft and does not look oily!! I highly recommend if you have oily skin. This product is a bit cheaper than the other moisturizer, but the end results are better!!

SCORE: 10/10
