Dr. Jart Ceramidin Cream Is Velvet Skin, Bottled — Editor Review

I was 22 and working my very first job in the beauty industry when I was given a gleaming porcelain jar of very expensive face cream. If I said the name of it, you would know exactly what I am talking about, but I won’t because I do not want to invite controversy into my life by speaking ill of a widely beloved moisturizer.

Oops — I have accidentally revealed that I hated this moisturizer. It was magic, in that it magically made a trail of pimples appear where I had left it, as if this face cream curdled on the skin of a 22-year-old who did not deserve it.

Many years later, this face cream’s suggested retail price still floats high above the maximum I would ever pay for a face cream. Then, I was given Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream, and now I know once and for all that the other cream is garbage, because this one improves on it in every single possible way (and it’s $48, not hundreds). 

The texture, which is of a warm, lightly melted butter, spreads seamlessly into a powerful moisture barrier for the face. When I was 22, I thought moisturizers were supposed to hydrate the face, but that is wrong and I was an idiot. What they do is make sure your face retains as much existing moisture as possible. The Ceramidin line uses a patented blend of ceramides — juicy fatty acids found in cell membranes — that press their distended bodies together so not a single droplet of moisture passes. The cream uses other botanical extracts, like artichoke (wrinkle-fighting) and turmeric (antibacterial), to provide ad hoc benefits, but I like to use it most to Saran Wrap my face in moisture while sitting in front of my quivering radiator writing this review. I am older, if not much wiser, so I’ll take all of the help I can get.

You’ll find the Dr. Jart’s Ceramidin Cream in our October 2020 Allure Beauty Box.
