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.
Gently cleans and leaves my skin fresh! Really gentle and is a miracle for my eczema since it is eczema approved. It has visibly improved my eczema and is great for winter dry skin! I have combo skin, oily in summer, dry in winter and this is def my winter cleanser. Only complain is you have to scrub for your waterproof mascara to come off. It eventually does but takes some time. Also, it's too gentle and non foaming for my clarisonic Mia
I have dry, sensitive skin with rosacea. This product removes my makeup (not waterproof - that takes an eye makeup remover) and leaves my skin feeling great. I only use it on my face, so the big bottle lasts a LONG time, so the cost is very reasonable. I use many of CeraVe's products and am happy with them all.
i LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! It does not cause dryness, irritation or redness. My dermatologist suggested this product to me while I was using retinol to clear my acne. Within just a few uses, my skin complexion appeared to be more even, less blotchy, and less dry. I love that this product has hyaluronic acid in it because it absorbs the moisturize in your skin and locks it in. This ingredient helps repair and regenerate my problematic skin that suffers from dryness and scars. Everyone should go out and buy this, it is a 10/10 product!!!
I love this product, it is inexpensive and effective in cleansing my skin without stripping or irritating. At the same time, I can see how this would be problematic if you had a lot of makeup to remove because it's likely too gentle to remove a full face of makeup.
I love it and will continue to buy, super gentle, super effective for what I use a cleanser for.
I look at some of the reviews this product has gotten and I'm blown away! I don't understand how it's worked on so many people with some of the same symptoms that I have. I have rosacea that acts up really badly in the winter and I have acne prone skin. Not only did this product dry out my skin even further making my rosacea look worse but it made me break out so much that it looked like I had an allergic reaction on my face! I don't know why it reacted so negatively on my skin but it's obviously a product I will never use again and something that people with rosacea and acne prone skin should keep an eye on because this product does not work on all of us the same. It's also about $14 for the bottle so it was a lot of money to throw away for nothing! Bummed!
Make sure you are washing the product of your skin fully, as with any cleanser it may clog your pores if you do not rinse thourougly enough. For reference I have dry, sensitive skin with bouts of hormonal break outs around my chin and cheeks. If your considering this cleanser and you are trying to pick between Cetaphil and CerVe, just go with CerVe I personally had breakouts with Cetaphil.
P.S. I really like that this cleanser comes in a bottle with pump included, very convienent. No frills packaging which can be a put off to many, but let the Cermaides and Hyluranic acid speak for themselves..This cleanser also lasts a very good amount of time.
I love this and use it all over in the shower and to wash my face in the morning. I have very dry skin and since I started using it, I feel so much better. Afterwards, I use Cerave Lotion all over while still wet, which is a rather light lotion that works better than many heavier ones. I use it mostly as a body lotion, but it is fine as a facial lotion too. These products have really changed my life and it's winter and I am very, very dry normally. Even in summer I am very dry. My husband loves it as a facial cleanser and he has somewhat oily skin. I love it as a hand soap too as I wash my hands a lot and they used to hurt so and crack. The only thing it is not good for is taking of heavy make up, especially eye makeup, so I use Kiehl's Ultra Cleanser for that or Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Facial Cleanser. This is a great product. It could be tad cheaper, but when you think how good it is, I'd probably pay more for it. I go through a lot of it and am hooked. This really does keep protect your skin and has not caused any breakouts.
I've been using this as my only cleanser for about 3 months now. I originally meant to buy the foaming cleanser so when I first used this one it was kinda off putting. Its doesn't suds up at all. I decided to use it up as fast as I could and then purchase the foaming cleanser. Well between then and now I fell in love with it! Lol. Its very gentle on your skin so it doesn't remove makeup well but if I don't wear makeup all day and then clean my face with it I feel like it cleans my skin adequately. My current routine is to use this in the morning and use a cold cream at night. The bottle has lasted a long time and I love using my clarisonic with this too.
