Make CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser a vital part of your daily skin care regimen. Ideal for normal to dry skin types. Use daily morning and night to gently remove dirt, oil and makeup without disrupting the skin's natural protective barrier. Never drying, ceramides help moisturize, restore and maintain the skin's natural protective function. Its unique, patented MVE formulation releases ceramides and other essential ingredients throughout the day, so they penetrate deep into skin to hydrate and nourish. While hyaluronic acid (a humectant) attracts moisture to the top layer of the skin, ensuring skin remains hydrated after washing.
  • Ideal for use on the face and body
  • Ceramides help repair the skin barrier
  • Hyaluronic acid attracts needed moisture
  • Emollients moisturize and soften very dry skin

      Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser:

      I was really impressed with this product. This performs as well as more expensive gel cleansers. This product works well for my combination skin because I rarely wear foundation. It is gentle but cleans well without stripping my skin. I only use about two pumps and it lathers very nicely. I use a wash cloth to remove the soap. On days when I do wear foundation, I start with Cerave Micellar water to remove my make-up and then cleanse with a gel cleanser. I always follow with a toner. This is a great deal for 12 ounces of cleanser.

          Best face wash I've ever used

          By jabert123

          from USA

          Comments about CeraVe Foaming Facial Cleanser:

          I use this in combination with my AM and PM moisturizers (also from CeraVe) and within 2 days, all of my little bumps were gone. Before, if I had accidentally slept in my makeup, I would break out everywhere, and now, as long as I take my makeup off when I wake up and use this and the moisturizer, my skin stays clear. This doesn't dry my face out nearly as much as any other face wash and is truly very gentle on the skin.

            I have the worst combination skin. My t-zone is extremely oily and acne prone while the skin on my eyes, cheeks, and chin are extremely dry, itchy, and peeling. After reading the reviews, I decided to try it and see if it worked for me. IT IS THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED TO MY FACE IN A LONG TIME! Dry, itchy spots have disappeared after a week and I can now wear makeup again.
