This is my go to cleanser for morning and second cleanse. For reference, my skin is sensitive, reactive, and easily irritated, but it's also severely dehydrated and prone to hormonal and inflammatory acne. I love this cleanser because it's gentle, soothing, and effective, but never disturbs the skin's moisture barrier. I don't use it to remove makeup or sunscreen (that's what oil cleansers are for, y'all, get on the double cleansing bandwagon if you're not here already), but it does a good job at removing surface grime and preparing the skin to receive your skincare products. It's easy to find, pH balanced, relatively inexpensive, and comes in a user friendly albeit unattractive pump bottle. I have repurchased many times and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.

I've been using this product for years to manage my acne/rosacea/combo/sensitive skin. At times, it's the only thing my skin will tolerate. Can't comment on it's effectiveness at removing makeup.

I only use non foaming cleansers which always dry my dehydrated acne prone skin and break me out. This removes make up if you use a warm wash cloth after applying to dry skin. I have moved on to Albolene, however. Keeps my skin clearer and more moisturized with less rubbing. Still like this cleanser but it's no longer my go to

Nice to use a cleanser that moisturizes and doesn't break me out or have weird stuff in it that turns me red(talking to u PTR creamy cleanser!)... Giant bottle make it a super value. No need to spend way too much on Avene cuz this works just as well and is sooo much cheaper!

I struggle with dry skin, especially in the winter. I was having issues with dry patches around my chin and cheeks. I was using a foaming cleaner from aveeno, which was stripping my skin. I decided to purchase this, and am so glad I did. The dry patch around my chin had been present for about a week, and almost appeared like milia. After using this cleanser for ONE night, the dry patches went away. This will not cleanse all of your make up off, I would use a make-up remover for that. I also go in with a hydrating toner after using this, but so far I am impressed with this cleanser! (As a side note, I use heavy moisturizers at night, including cerave and Dr. Jart sleeping mask. However, even with using these moisturizers for the past few weeks, they didn’t make a huge impact on my few dry spots. I attribute the change to this cleanser, as it was the only new thing I added to my routine.)

This is my HG cleanser. I do not have many Holy Grails and to be honest, I did not regularly cleanse my face until I started using this product. I have Normal/Dry skin and do not generally have much oil on my face. For many years, I tried a number of cleansers and found most of them would strip my skin especially foaming ones. This is the only cleanser I can use every day that I don't find drying. The film that it leaves is odd, but I'm use to it now. It's there to add a layer until you can apply a hydrating or moisturizing product like a toner or moisturizer afterwards. This cleanser is useful as a second cleanser and if you don't really wear much product. I wear skincare and sunscreen daily. I do not wear makeup except for lipstick and the occasional highlighter and rarely, eye liner so this product works. However, I do use the Bioderma Sensibio miceller or an oil cleanser before the CeraVe Hyrating most nights. I love the lack of scent, I love that it is readily available, and I love that is cheap and lasts forever!

First and foremost, I have super dry skin these days due to my beginning of tretinoin (Retin-A). No other cleanser does what this baby does for my skin! This is a super gentle, super hydrating, non moisture barrier stripping, soothing cleanser. It is packed full of great, skin loving ingredients such as moisture binding glycerin, nourishing ceramides and hydrating hyaluronic acid. This does not remove all of my make up and it doesn't claim to. I utilize coconut oil and a hot wash cloth to tackle that part of my skin care. THIS gently cleanses the skin of products and debris. I use it morning and night...it has brought new balance to my skin since starting the tretinoin. I recommend this product to anyone struggling with dry/dehydrated skin as well as anyone using accutane or topical retinoids.

My absolute go-to for my morning face wash - I love how I feel like I'm washing my face with a moisturizer - I'm very acne prone and this helps balance out my dryness from nighttime acne products - my skin loves it, I don't find that it clogs my pores and it's got a list of good ingredients and no fragrance that I detect

I've used this one,the hydrating one, and I have also used the foaming one and I definitely prefer the foaming version. Neither dry my skin out, neither feel hydrating, neither feel like they clean my face very well and neither are good at removing makeup, so what is the point of even using them? Also the pumps clog easily which is annoying. My Philosphy Purity does it all and leaves my face, clean, soft and not stripped of moisture. Yes it's more expensive but the big bottle lasts me about a year. I don't rely on cleansers to moisturize, I want them to clean. The Cerave Hydrating doesn't leave a film like Cetaphil does and it does have better ingredients that are good for your skin, but I doubt those ingredients are on long enough to do much. I don't have dry skin, so maybe those with dry skin appreciate this more. I don't know why this is such a holy grail for many, but so is Cetaphil and I think it's the worst cleanser I ever used, EVER. I just feel neither Cerave formula cleans my skin very well.Information from the website and ingredients:Type of skin:Normal to dryAreas of concern:Dry skin, facial cleansing, itchy skin, National Eczema Association accepted, psoriasis prone skin careDeveloped with dermatologists, CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser, effectively cleanses and hydrates without disrupting the protective skin barrier.

I love this stuff and have repurchased countless times! I have dry skin and use Retin A Micro 0.8% so the rest of my skin routine is focused on hydration. This wash is the least drying/irritating cleanser I have ever used (although my skin does still feel a little tight in the winter) and I notice an immediate negative difference when I try different washes. I use an oil cleanser to get off my makeup, so I cannot attest to the cleanser's makeup removing abilities, and then use this morning and night. The pump packaging is great, the size is huge, and the wash doesn't dry my skin or make me break out--will probably keep using this forever!
