Most Helpful Positive Review Happy Medium
I switched from the Foaming Facial Cleanser from Cerave to this one and I AM SO HAPPY I DID. This is the perfect cleanser to use after I use my Neutrogena Fragrance Free Makeup Removing Wipes (Sorry Hyram). It is gentle but super effective and leaves my skin feeling very clean and soft and moisturized, not stripped dry and squeaky. I use this on a warm wet wash cloth to really exfoliate and clean my skin after a heavy makeup day or if my T-Zone is textured and congested. Perfect cleanser for true combo skin. Plus it is gentle on the remains of the perioral dermatitis that is finally healing around my nose and mouth.
Most Helpful Critical Review Loved this for 2 wks. Then I got acne bad
The hydrating cleanser feels like rubbing lotion on my face. Didn't work. The foaming was too harsh. Thought I found my Goldie locks cleanser. I started using this am only. Then switched to my only cleanser. For 2
Wks my skin seemed to love this stuff. I've already written dozens of reviews about how great it is.
I started getting pustules. I never get this type of acne. When I breakout I get small cysts from hormones. Bc my skin is drier. Anywhere I have hair follicles really I broke out. My upper lip, forehead, cheeks... were the worst. I waited too long to stop using this bc I just knew it was something else. Nope. I stopped & skin started healing pretty quickly. It's been about a week & now only left w hyperpigmentation from all the spots this caused.
I think it would work well for someone else tho! Giving mine to my teenage daughter who does well w all the other cerave cleansers I've handed down to her :)

Love love this face wash
Nessa from Riverside, CA
Removes all stubborn makeup. Doesn't irritate or burn my eyes. I find this cleanser WAYYY better than the regular hydrating cleanser, which burns my skin. I can get both combinations of a hydrating + foaming cleanser alone.
It's the best by far!!!!
Ks from Texas
Doesn't dry skin out or anything. I use the entire product line. It last a long time if you are the only one using it.
Ruined my skin
Chloe from New York
This face wash is very good at removing makeup BUT it has caused so many breakouts and tiny bumps on my face, also got in my eye by accident and my eye was so swollen for 2 days. I usually only breakout a little bit on my period but this stuff caused acne all over my cheeks, especially around my mouth area. My skin has never been this bad
Easily removes makeup

I love how this product easily removes all of my makeup in one wash.
My new fav!

I love this!!! Don't think, just buy!
Great at removing makeup and not harsh or drying
Jen from Mason, Ohio
This is described as a cream to foam and it has a very nice consistency. Cleans make up without being harsh or drying skin. One drawback is that it's not portable. I wish it came in a tube or lid with a click top. I get leaking with the pump style dispensers even when you lock it
Easily removes makeup

I'm too lazy to use mascara remover or pads. This cleanser removes all mascara (even waterproof) and gently cleans my skin.
Melany from Santa Rosa
I really loved this product! It was so soothing to use on my skin and didn't cause any breakouts! I would recommend it!
Great and Cleared My Skin
Britt from Dallas Tx
I love how this removes my make and washes my face. I have combo/ normal skin more on the Dry side. It did purge my skin the first couple of weeks of use. I have continued to use it and my skin has remained clear for the most part.
Ang from Colorado
My skin absolutely loves this was have a terrible break out and it cleared up in 2 days!! I didn't love the regular hydrating cleanser I much prefer something that foams and lathers. Omg the combo of the hydration but it foams is match made in heaven. Moved to my number 1 favorite cleanser!
Kgp from Tucson
I went to Ulta looking for a face wash that would help with the acne I was suddenly developing as an adult. I had a different brand in hand when an ulta employee started asking me questions about my skin and led me away from that stripping product I had! He led me to this! I've been using it for a week now and my acne is going away! I have always heard great stuff about this brand and now I know why!!
Jordan from Oswego
I used this product for 3 days and I woke up one morning with small bumps all over my face and I now have a rash and it hurts!!! Please stay away from this product!
Melanie B. from Colorado Springs, CO
I love using this product because it always leaves your skin feeling soft & smooth like it would be hydrated. I naturally do have a pretty dry face and make up wipes don't really do justice for me either so, having this to also remove makeup is definitely a plus.
Go to facewash
Kelsey from Wilmington, NC
Have been using this brand a while for their face wash and moisturizer. I usually have dry skin and this has really fixed that and clears my skin up!
NT from Duluth, GA
I had been using a face washing product for oily skin and didn't realize how dry my skin had become. After using the Cerave just once, I noticed such a difference. My skin was soft and felt great!
Mary from Springfield pa
Extremely happy with this product! Feels great and cleans perfectly
Corinne from Washington
This cleans my skin of dirt and makeup without feeling stripped. I do double cleanse with a facial oil first though. The only thing I don't care for is the smell. It's faint, but definitely there. I can't really describe it, but it probably wouldn't bother most people.
Ana from Indio
I suffer from bad redness in the face and after trying a lot of different products this is seriously the best one!
Original cream one way better
Strawberryshortcake from Canada
This version of the cleanser is horrible. I hope they don't discontinue the original cream cleanser and replace it with this one. Because if they do...those with really sensitive skin will not be happy.
Got a reaction from it
Emma from MA
Was very excited to try this out but it started to burn my face instantly and now my skin is very irritated. My skin is not normally sensitive but this did not work at all for me.
Prefer it over their cream cleanser
mg from Southern California
I love using it with my boie face scrubber because it creates a really great lather.
Lalah from NY
This was recommended to me by my Dermatologist for my dry sensitive skin. And I love it. I also use the make up removing wipes. During the winter my face is very dry and more sensitive then usual, this cleanser is fabulous. Highly recommend.
DMarie from NM
A little goes a long way I would definitely purchase again.
Love this product!
Alyssa from Wisconsin
Just started using and am very happy with it. I have very dry skin and it doesn't seem to dry it out!
