Keep coming back to this facial wash. Can't put my finger on it but my skin feels soft and happy after using. My rosacea is not irritated...I have the acne type....by this product either. Like the packaging, just wish it came with a flip top like Cetaphil. It's kinda pricey for a drugstore brand, but worth it in my opinion. Seems to last awhile. Will keep buying!!!

This non-foaming cleanser works very well with the Clarisonic, but is too hydrating for my oily skin except in the harshest winter conditions. It does not cleanse deeply enough for me in summer or when I wear sunscreen. However, my tween daughter who has dry skin with some pre-pubecent breakouts is using it (& their PM moisturizer) and it is helping her skin. It is good value and the pump works easily for a young child to use. Love that it is fragrance free.

since being on retin-a, I have recently struggled a lot with dry skin... and after finding this on sale at my local Rite Aid (woo!), I thought I would give it a try. Honestly, it did a fabulous job of moisturizing my flaky, dry skin. I didn't even have to use moisturizer after I washed my face everytime. However, it did not do a great job of removing makeup, and additionally it contains a few different parabens, which made me really sad and ultimately caused me to give it up after some time. I just didn't feel good about using it. I ended up using my own face scrub recipe that has lovely natural ingredients and is super cheap! Made with coconut flour, oat flour, green clay, turmeric, cinnamon, vegetable glycerin, rose water, tea tree oil, jojoba oil, and vitamin E oil. All mixed up and stored in a jar-- works like a charm and super easy to make/use! And a good replacement/alternative for this cleanser because it contains no parabens.

This isn't an especially great cleanser by any means - but it is good for sensitive skin. This does not clean off makeup well, so a makeup remover beforehand is a must.

I use my cleansers with a microdermabrasion brush so the cleansing part is mostly attributed to the brush.

Overall, a pretty decent cleanser. It is a bit on the pricier side though.

I recently finished my two bottles of the Olay sensitive foaming cleanser. It had been recommended to me about a year ago on the boards as a fuss-free cleanser that wouldn't bother my skin. When I finished it I realized I think I could find something better for around the same price. I already use the Cerave PM, so I decided to try the hydrating cleanser as it has pretty similar ingredients.
I am so happy I did because it is really great! It is so comfortable to use, my skin feels refreshed and happy, there is no residue and it's a good price.
I think some people might not like that it doesn't foam up, but to be honest, the chemicals that they add in to make it foam only dry your face out - or at least they dry mine out. A while ago I bought about 20 wash cloths and I use them along with the cleanser and I have no problems getting all my makeup off easily.

I had high hopes for this cleanser after reading all the amazing reviews about it.....but it didn't work for my sensitive, dehydrated and acne prone skin.....it was already burning me slightly around my mouth and cheeks when i was using it the first time...and then my face immediately didn't feel right with the flushing heat all over.......then the itchiness came along......i tried to use it a second time....same thing......so its a no go for me...!!

I have sensitive, dry, acne-prone skin and this cleanser works beautifully. I haven't always been so lucky. Other cleansers marked 'sensitive' have inflamed my skin to the point of pain. The one caveat is that it doesn't remove all makeup so I use a pad with Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water to wipe off any lingering traces after I wash my face at night.

I was looking for a hydrating cleanser for the upcoming colder months because my combo/oily skin turns very dry. I'm not fully convinced that this is actually hydrating my skin at all. It feels OK on the skin and does an OK job of cleansing after using Clinique TTDO balm to remove my makeup. But ultimately I don't feel like this is a game-changer for me. I've used other cream cleansers that have provided more moisture and hydration. Will not repurchase.

Full disclosure: I'm currently obsessed with CeraVe products after swapping out all my Cetaphil products for CeraVe! I've had acne for 14+ years and use prescription and over the counter medications to treat. My skin is extremely oily and extremely dry at the same time. Some parts of my face- specifically my cheeks, under my eyes, and upper lip area- are very sensitive. Other parts- specifically my forehead, nose, chin, and the sides of my face- are tough and seem to be able to withstand anything. I recently switched from Cetaphil Cleanser to CeraVe hydrating cleanser and I'm absolutely love it! It's very hydrating and cleansing, and as promisedi it leaves my skin feeling soft. Those are the pros. The cons that keep me from giving it a perfect rating:

1) When I first apply it, it sometimes stings the sensitive areas of my face for a few seconds- but so did the Cetaphil cleanser.

2) It's not the most effective make-up remover so if I wear make-up, I use my make-up remover and then use the hydrating cleanser.

3) It's not cheap- but it's well worth it in my opinion.
