      Favorite face wash

      By Ja'mie

      from Texas

      Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Face Cleanser Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin:

      Doesn't irritate my skin, definitely helped restore some moisture. my face feels nice and clean afterward but not tight. I have breakouts occasionally but much less often than before I used this product. I think this does a good job of keeping zits away for me. One thing is that it doesn't take off makeup at all for me. I will use this for as long as it stays the same. I want to try the foaming wash sometime too but I think I will still like this one more.

        Why haven't I tried this before ?!

        By Cady

        from California

        Comments about CeraVe Hydrating Face Cleanser Face Wash for Normal to Dry Skin:

        I have very dry skin. I'm talking so dry that even in 100 plus degree southern California weather I don't get oily.
        With that dryness comes texture and sensitivity. Before this I had only used purity by philosophy. It was the only wash that didn't dry my skin further or irritate it. I went out and tried this based on a few recommendations and wow I will never use anything else from this point on. Within the first use my skin has felt smoother and stays softer for longer. My makeup is going on better now because my face is more hydrated.

                  Hey Emily! While our Hydrating Cleanser does not make a sulfate-free claim, we strongly encourage you to take a look at the ingredient list for this cleanser. The ingredient list can be found under the "Details" tab where you will find the "Ingredients" tab. We would also like to offer a very useful website that has excellent information on ingredients used in skin care and makeup products. The website is http://www.cosmeticsinfo.org/. We hope this information is useful!

                  Hi Ashley! It is exciting to see you are intrigued by our Hydrating Cleanser. The goal for this cleanser is to effectively cleanse, loosen and remove dirt, germs, excess oils, dead cells, cosmetic and medication residue without irritating the skin or drawing away needed moisture. It is ideal for normal to dry skin. Our products do go by age, but instead by concern. By effectively cleansing your skin you will limit the amount of acne you may be experiencing. This cleanser is also noncomedogenic so it does not cause pimples or acne by clogging the pores!

                  Hey Lexi! Thank you for asking about our Hydrating Cleanser. The pH of any given product is not a measure of the product's efficacy. All CeraVe products are developed to be compatible with the natural biology of the skin. It is our unique formula and technology that provides the desired result. You can certainly be assured that this cleanser will not disrupt your skin barrier and that this product has been developed with the highest quality of ingredients. We hope this information is helpful!
