I have not had any problems with this cleanser. I feel like I'm still looking for something better, but considering I have dry, problematic skin, this is pretty great. No irritation, and I've gone through two bottles. It certainly doesn't cure my skin, but it keeps it under control, and that works for me. I prefer this over Cetaphil. It is a bit pricey for me, but I don't need to buy it that often, so I can deal with that.
This is my new holy grail cleanser! The hyaluronic acid and ceramides found in this cleanser are essentials for retaining moisture in the skin. I have a very serious facial regimen at night (tretinoin 1 to 2 nights a week; Avibon Vitamin A the other nights, and alternate between AHA and BHA acids every night that I don't use tretinoin cream), and this cleanser has kept my skin looking healthy, hydrated, and plump. I highly recommend this cleanser for anyone who uses tretinoin or who is concerned about anti-aging...this cleanser is dermatologist recommended and has ingredients that are research-backed to be highly effective. LOVE!
I have ridiculously sensitive skin that gets dry on the cheeks. This cleanser leaves my skin feeling soft and clean and doesn't cause any irritation. Even Cetaphil cleanser isn't gentle enough for my skin, but this is!
This was recommended by my brothers dermatologist so we both started using it. I love it so much, I love how theres no harsh acne treatments just a pure hydrating gentle cleanser. Ever since i started using it my skin has been so much clearer and less dry. I exfoliate and then use this morning & night and then moisturize and that is all i do and now my skin is much improved :) love this stuff, only complaint is the price its 12.99 at target :(
I was using this product for a while after my dermatologist recommended it. I always had positive results until recently. Recently I have been using this product at night to remove make-up and prep for my night-time routine. The cleanser began irritating my skin especially around my eye/cheek area. It would sting after a few seconds of applying and I had to wash it off immediately. It also did not remove the makeup effectively as it claims to do so. Overall this is a great cleanser, but I took it out of my night-time routine.
I've finally found a cleanser that does not leave my skin feeling tight after I wash my face but still it feeling clean. It is very gentle and hydrating. Keep in mind this will not remove a full face of makeup, I use makeup remover wipes for that. But after I remove my makeup I use this with my Clarisonic and it removes any residual makeup and leave skin feeling smooth and supple. HG cleanser for dry reactive skin.
I love this! I have dry, sensitive skin that breaks out a tiny big due to dryness in the cold winter months. This product really cleans my skin without drag it out. It kind of calms everything and helps clear up my skin. I don't wear foundation or coverup or even a tinted moisturizer, but this does a great job of removing my blush and a decent job of getting off my eye makeup (I do use an eye make up remover, though). I do not have acne pone skin and I don't think this would help those who do. IMO this is better suited for those of us with dry, sensitive skin who gets the occasional pimple or two. It's pricey but worth it. I do prefer this over the Cetaphil Gentle Cleanser which breaks me out.
I bought this on the advice of my dermatologist when I started Retin-A. It's very, very mild. If I wasn't on Retin-A, this wouldn't be enough for me -- but it's working great for me now. Thanks to this and Egyptian Magic Cream, I haven't had any flaking or redness.
It seems like Cerave's products just don't work for me. AT ALL. I've already starting breaking out from this DAYS after using this. My skin feels congested and looks oily as heck.
I'd definitely test trial this baby on a small patch of skin before going ahead and slathering it all over your face.
I admit I am a bit jealous of all the people this cleanser has worked for... unfortunately it's a no no for me.
Wasn't drying like the Cerave foaming cleanser
-Clogged my pores (say what?! it's supposed to be non-comedogenic!)
-Didn't clean the dirt and oil on my face (made my face more oily)
Sorry Cerave, but I would not ever repurchase this or any other product of yours again.
My sensitive skin loves this fragrance free cleanser. Super hydrating, I never feel tight or dry after using it. The large 12 ounce pump-style bottle is both convenient and economical retailing for about $12 dollars. This is truly a luxury product in the drugstore aisle.
