Most Helpful Positive Review Awesome!
I like this cleanser a lot! I have been struggling with terrible hormonal cystic acne since I was in the sixth grade. This past monday, I had twelve cysts on one side of my chin. Today is saturday, and they are 99% cleared, with no new breakouts forming. I have had this cluster of smaller cysts on the other side of my chin for four weeks with no sign of improvement. On monday they looked like a huge blister, and today they look like tiny scabs that are almost completely gone. This only dries out my pimples, not the rest of my skin, which is wonderful. I highly recommend trying this if you are at your wits end with acne. It cleared my skin without harsh chemicals or drying it out, it could clear yours too!
Most Helpful Critical Review I really wanted to love this stuff
I really, really wanted to love this product. I was thrilled by all of the reviews from other users. I was using a different product right before using this and it worked to combat my breakouts due to excessively oily skin. (I don't have hormonal acne, or sever acne, just slight breakouts due to my crazy oily face) However this product was a little to harsh and drying for me so I switched to this. Within two week I had such a bad breakout I couldn't bear another day with this. I know that you should give something a full month to test and that sometimes things get worse before they get better but I just couldn't do it. I did not see anything else improving either to help give me motivation that it would improve. SO I went back to the other product and stepped up my moisturizing and within two day my face is majorly improving. I am disappointed because I really wanted to love this. Based on other great reviews I would probably still recommend this. It just wasn't for me.

Tried it for a week and I got all these random breakouts. My skin wasn't perfect before but it was more than usual. Will be going back to my cheaper face wash. Was disappointed this is so hyped. Maybe not for me.
Caused a Breakout
Emily from America
I have very acne prone, oily skin and i bought this with the hope of reducing acne and oil. Sadly, it did cause a breakout around the corners of my mouth and chin.
Brin from Houston
This is my go to cleanser. Its gentle and has no fragrance and its great to use after any makeup remover. It leaves my oily skin feeling clean but not tight and has not broken me out once.
Love it 🤩
Brookie from U.S.A
I love this produce it works really well for my skin type but it is not every skin type so look into the produce before buying.
Connie from Georgia
I was in the market for a new face wash/skincare brand. After some reading I decided to roll with this face wash. I have pretty oily skin but not super sensitive. Within about 2 weeks this wash cleared up the few zits I had and has seemingly made my skin more resilient! I'll definitely be sticking with this wash for awhile. I love the way it foams and it is gentle on my skin.

amazing for acne ! :)
Not for me
Steph from Michigan
Made me break out after the second use. Gonna give to my sister. Maybe it'll work out better for her since she has a different skin type.
Best face wash ever!
Annabelle from Asheboro
I just can't get on the non foaming face wash band wagon. I have to have them bubbles or I feel like a 3 year old pretending to wash my face like mommy. This product is hands down my favorite face wash. Nothing else compares. It deep cleans. My face never feels dry. LOVE LOVE LOVE.
Love- cleanses & moisturizes
Sarah from CT
I have been using the Cerave hydrating cleanser for years and decided to give this one a try, I love it so much more! It seems richer and lighter somehow at the same time, and is just as gentle for sensitive skin as the hydrating one. Skin feels clean and hydrated, the foaming aspect helps to spread this across my face however it doesn't foam/lather as much as I was thinking it would.
Solid facial cleanser choice for oily skin
Abeautyjunkie from Virginia
I like this cleanser for my acne prone, oily skin. Foams pretty nicely and doesn't sting eyes. Leaves skin feeling clean and comfortable (not tight feeling). I feel like I get a pretty good bang for my buck with this cleanser. Solid choice and would recommend!
Nargiz from Nashville
I have extremely greasy skin and this is THE BEST. It's the only face wash that doesn't break me out. I also wash my back and chest with this!
I'm in LOVE
Mimi from Miami
After used every single brand of cleansers, from the expensive ones to the most drying and full of harm ingredients:( I finally give a try to Cerave and I'm glowing without oil for the first time in my life. Totally recomend this product.

This cleared up my skin in 3 weeks! I use it everyday with the CeraVe Daily Moisturizing Lotion.
Sam from HNL
Recently started having hormonal pimples. I don't have acne (the big and painful ones). The cleanser is a bit thick and it dries a little fast so I'd have to wet my hands again to get it to lather. No new breakouts, no redness or sensitivity. It really keeps my skin less oily throughout the day. For my moisturizer I use a water base moisturizer from Nature Republic Aloe Vera.
I use this before I exfoliate as well. Let your face completely dry before using other products. For oil control give the niacinamide a go! It's cheap bro!
YES YES YES💋💝✨

LOVE IT!!!!! It cleared most of my breakouts and pimples! I have only been using it for 2 weeks and I already see a change in my skin!!
Combination/oily in T-zone
Sofia from Seattle, WA
Feels fine at first but somehow produces more sticky-oiliness than if I don't wash my face at all
Esther from Los Banos, ca
I was breaking out a lot on my chin from wear a mask all day. It's help me clear up my skin.
mari from nunya
I had bought this product because i realized i needed to include a cleanser into my routine & it's honestly the best! i had stubborn little bumps on my forehead & within a few uses they were barely there! when i had tried it on my face it helped my acne bumps go down!
Made my face breakout
Jesa from Ohio
Made my face completely break out and had tiny little bumps everywhere.
Quality for an amazing price !
Liz from Springfield, Mo.
Found this product and I really noticed a difference in my face not drying out so much after washing it. I feel like this really helps balance my skin.

I think it's really good tbh !
Do not recommend from Montana
I started using this face wash after people/dermatologists raved about it. The first 3 months were good but now my skin has developed tiny bumps all over it. It looks like my face has a rash. I have fairly good skin so this is not common for me. It leaves a film over my face and I never feel clean.
New favorite cleanser
Mariahnoel from Detroit
I feel like a lot of the reviews did not know this but I just wanna give my personal experience/opinion, in case it could help someone. So I have combo skin with bad painful cystic acne, the first couple times I used this I broke out so bad! But, here's the thing a lot of people don't understand, that is our skin "purging" which means this product is actually doing its job by getting all that old gunk outta my skin, which has to come out in pimple form (I know it kinda sucks lol) but now a week later I have less acne, almost completely gone. I will definitely be re buying. So long story short don't be so quick to say you hate a product without fully using it for at lease a month. 😊
AMAZING I WOULD BUY AGAIN FOR SURE
viv from Carlsbad, CA
This product is amazing!! I wanted to find a cleanser that would leave my skin feeling clean but not stripped and squeaky. This is the perfect cleanser for exactly that, I also love how this is fragrance free so it won't irritate my skin. You don't need to use a lot and it's very affordable for the quality. This has niacinamide and hyaluronic acid which are both amazing for hydrating and brightening the skin. The texture, the ingredients, the price, the packaging, and personal experience made me love this product. Definitely would buy again!!
