CeraVe

Hydrating Cleanser

12.0 oz Item 2241933

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:

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.

    Gentle on my dry skin

    By Grace

    from Georgia

    Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

    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.

      Finding the right cleanser is hard, especially one that's moisturizing. I feel like this cleanser definitely gets the job done without drying out my skin. One of the staff that provides skin service recommended it to me and I'm so glad she did.

      Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

      This cleanser is perfect for my sensitive, dry, and redness-prone skin type. It leaves my skin feeling soft, clean, and no irritation. My only drawback is it's not that effective at removing makeup, so I use an oil to breakdown my makeup prior to using this to cleanse my face which I've found to be the perfect recipe for my skin type.

        Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

        I really like this as a gentle morning cleanser. Its not great for removing makeup alone, it would definitely need to be part 2 of a dual cleanse. I'll be buying this again.

            Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser:

            I use on my face as soon as i come home, because i work 8-10 hour shifts and my makeup feels gross by then. This product removes makeup, dirt, and oil faster than any micellar water, or makeup remover. usually i spend about 10 minutes using make up remover and STILL have to wash my face twice after. BOOM with this cleanser i get everything done with one wash and my dry skin isnt freaking out on me after! i am so so happy with this product and my search for a staple in my skin care is over. Even my BF noticed a difference in cleanliness and time reduction! If you dont like liquid soap they have a bar version and it works just as great
