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.
Wet skin with lukewarm water. Massage into skin in a gentle, circular motion. Rinse.

    Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

    I use this facial wash twice a day. Have used it for about three years and have no reason to change.
    Love this facial wash as well as the CERAVE PM facial moisturizer.
    I am a buyer who looks for active ingredients and results at the best price points that can fulfill those desires. This hydrating wash does that for my dryer skin. I bought some for my daughter who has combination skin and it works beautifully for her as well.

          Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

          I love this inexpensive face wash because I have really dry skin and this leaves my skin clean but not tight.
          It cleans well except for when I have a heavy makeup on or waterproof mascara. Then I either ensure I precleanse or do a better job with my eye makeup remover. Standard right?

          Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

          This is very gentle and doesn't cause any irritation or breakouts. It has a lotion like consistency that doesn't foam/lather up, which I appreciate because it feels really moisturizing, but it doesn't exacerbate the random patch of oiliness I get around my nose. I also like that it's fragrance free.
          My only qualm with this is it doesn't do a great job of removing makeup, but that's not a huge deal for me because I take my makeup off before washing my face, regardless of the cleanser I use.

            • Ineffective

            Best Uses

              Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

              The CeraVe fragrance free moisturizer works wonders for my skin. I wanted to love this cleanser so bad, but it's a no for me. I returned this clesnser to my local Ulta because it does the total opposite for me. Instead of hydrating my skin, it dries it out and irritates it. The cleanser felt more like a lotion.

              Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

              If you have issues with facial cleansers drying your skin out, then this is perfect for you. I have severely dry skin and this is the only cleanser I have used that doesn't irritate my skin. The only con for this is that it is not good at removing eye makeup...however, if you're looking for an eye makeup remover that doesn't irritate skin or dry it out, then use albolene.

              Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

              I have bad eczema and rosacea so I'm constantly on the lookout for a cleaner that is both gentle and effective. Unfortunately, this one missed the mark. I used it for about two and a half weeks and noticed my skin was less dry...but my pores were very defined after just a couple days. My skin started looking pigmented after a week and then I started getting TONS of clogged pores and tiny pimples.

              I'm not sure what ingredient triggered the response since I've used thick creams and never broke out before. However this was the only change to my routine, and once I stopped using the cleanser, my skin started clearing.

                I've been using this for a year. it has helped calm my very dry skin. It does not take off my makeup, so I have a separate product for that. This is a great face hydrating cleanser.
