        Comments about CeraVe Foaming Face Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin:

        In my opinion, Cerave makes the best skincare products on the market, period. I have used this product and several of their moisturizers for the last few years, and my skin has never looked better. I have super sensitive skin and eyes and none of their products irritate me. This cleanser is especially nice because it has a light foaming action, it removes all traces of face and eye makeup, and it is very easy to rinse off. My skin feels fresh and clean without feeling tight. I love Cerave products and cannot recommend them highly enough.

          I've used this face wash for years and it never disappoints. Takes off all my makeup without leaving it dry. My skin is on the sensitive side and it never irritates. This will always be my face wash.

          I've been experimenting with a bunch of high end lotions and cleansers. Finally I followed the advice of friends and so many "best of beauty" articles - and tried this. It leaves my skin so clean and soft! I now look forward to and never want to skip my evening face cleaning.

          Comments about CeraVe Foaming Face Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin:

          I have extremely oily & acne prone skin as well as sensitivity to products. Many cleansers that are geared towards oily skin are often too harsh & tend to irritate. While products made for dry or sensitive skin leave me greasy and with breakouts. This cleanser is the best of both worlds! My skin feels completely clean and so so soft after ever use. It does not strip your skin of essential natural oils either. I use this face wash exclusively.

            BUILDS UP EVEN MORE OIL!!!

            By gb23

            from roseville

            Comments about CeraVe Foaming Face Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin:

            I was super pumped to try this product due to all the great reviews I was reading, but after a few weeks of cleansing my face, day and night, I SAW EVEN MORE OIL ON MY FACE THAN EVER BEFORE. When I would put on makeup, it would fade away so easy and it was so annoying. When I stopped using it, I noticed no more oil on my face (or at least less than usual since I found out I have combo and not oily skin). But every skin is different! This is just a personal experience that I have had with this cleanser!

                  Hello Ben! Thank you for the question about our Hydrating Facial Cleanser. This cleanser was developed to help control the amount of excess oil on your skin without stripping your skin of necessary oils. While this product is not specifically developed to fight acne, controlling the oil, most likely will in turn help to control acne. We hope this clarifies!
