CeraVe

Hydrating Cleanser

Item #: 2241933 Size: 12.0 oz

The goal of effective cleansing is to loosen and remove dirt, germs, excess oils, dead cells, cosmetics and medication residues without irritating the skin or drawing away needed moisture. CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser gently cleanses the skin while helping to maintain the right moisture balance. It is proven to prevent moisture from escaping (evaporating) from the skin's surface. Its fragrance-free, moisturizing formulation is non-irritating and noncomedogenic (does not cause pimples or acne by clogging the pores).
Like all CeraVe Skincare products, CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser offers the benefits of unique, patented MVE delivery technology, which provides a controlled release of essential ceramides and other skin-nurturing and protective ingredients slowly over time. The unique ingredients in CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser help restore and maintain the natural protective function of the skin, help restore damaged skin and help keep skin healthy.
Elegant Formulation
CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser does not leave a greasy residue.
Dermatologist Recommended
Dermatologists recommend CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser as part of a daily regimen with CeraVe Moisturizing Lotion or CeraVe Moisturizing Cream either alone or in combination with prescription skin medications. Ask your dermatologist about the CeraVe Skincare line.

    Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

    I love it! My skin is so dry with harsh cleanser and this one is the most effective so far. I really did hope that it would lather more to make it feel like typical cleanser. I use it with my clarisonic and it doesn't strip my face from the oils it needs.

      Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

      I started using this product when the budget was tight and I found it to be totally under rated! It's easy to use, takes off every ounce of make up, and leaves my skin feeling clean and hydrated. I also use the daily moisturizer and the night creme and I'm completely surprised by them all! My skin tends to be on the dry side, and these products keep me hydrated.

      Don't believe the hype

      By chrisladean

      Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

      All I've heard is CeraVe CeraVe CeraVe. I love a good bargain so I bought this. It doesn't take my makeup off. I can wash my face twice and its still on there. I know for dry skin you dont want something harsh. But u dont want clogged pores either. Ridiculous waste of money

        Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

        This is a cleanser that my sister recommend to me who has acne prone normal skin. I was using cetaphils gentle cleanser and decided to give this a go. I used it for a month and nothing else in my routine changed. It leaves skin feeling soft and initially clean feeling. Bit whenever I would wake up my skin would be horribly greasy and oily which doesn't really happen to me ( I have dry combination sensitive skin). Throughout the day that oiliness would get worse which is what I think lead to a bad breakout l. While I do not think that the product itself causes breakouts the fact that it made my skin oily thus the oil clogged my pores. It is very gentle though, so if you have extra dry skin that isn't too sensitive this could be your Holy grail.

        Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

        I use this every night! Mornings too sometimes if I feel I need it, but mostly in the evenings. CereVe is such a great formula for their price and honestly this bottle lasted me for about 3 months. I had to get used to using a lotion cleanser because it doesn't foam like many other ones but weirdly it does the job. I usually cleanse first with makeup remover and then use this a second cleanse and it does the trick. It balances my skin nicely because I typically have dry skin. The ceramides and hyaluronic acid in it are so good for your skin as well. I will be repurchasing this over and over again and am glad I took a chance and tried it!

        Pleasantly Surprised

          • Sensitive Skin

          Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

          I have combination skin, and I recently noticed that the dry areas of my face were getting drier, while the oily areas were getting slightly less oily. I had been using products meant to reduce oil and prevent breakouts, but they weren't doing much for me anymore. I was moisturizing and exfoilating like crazy, but I was still getting dry, flaky patches, and my makeup looked horribly dry and cakey. I was reluctant to try this because I was afraid it would make the oily parts of my face worse or cause a breakout, but it's actually working really well. For the first time in a while, my skin is soft and it doesn't feel dry at all. I also haven't noticed any breakouts or excess oil after using this. My only qualm is it isn't fantastic at removing makeup. It takes two washes with this to completely remove all my makeup, but I always wash my face twice anyways, just to make sure I get all my makeup off, so that's not a big deal for me, but if you want to be able to take everything off in one step, you probably won't love this. However, even with using this twice in a row, I don't notice any dryness or tightness like I typically do with other cleansers. Overall, this suits my needs, and I would definitely recommend giving this a try.
