    So bad

    By Iris

    from Alabama

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

    1 second after I put this stuff on my face it starts stinging. Not only that but it doesn't remove makeup at all. It will just glide around on top of makeup but now even make it come off. I'm confused at how it could even wash just dirt away.

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

        It sure does moisturize but the consistency is similar to a gel moisturizer so I feel like I'm washing my face with moisturizer so I don't get that clean feeling after. The consistency mixed with water becomes slimey and runny that it gets in my eyes so easily even when I just run it over sparingly.

        Perfect morning cleanser

        By Emily

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

            This is my go-to A.M. cleanser, as well as when I come home from the gym. It makes my skin feel clean and prepared for toner, vitamin C & makeup. I do not think relying on this on its own is effective if you're looking to improve your skin, however. It needs to be used in conjunction with other products. This is a simple cleanser that literally cleans the face. Nothing more, nothing less. If you're looking to resolve specific skin care issues, that's where serums and acids come into play, not so much a cleanser.

            The best drugstore cleanser

            By SteffiInsider

            from Chicago

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

            This is my go-to cleanser. I have dry-combo skin & it works wonders. I purged a little bit when I first started my routine with this, but that's normal & it all cleared up within 2 weeks.

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

                I have incredibly dry skin so this stood out to me because 1. the price and 2. it's supposed to be hydrating. I don't find this hydrating whatsoever, my skin felt so tight and my dry patches felt ten times worse. Plus, only after 2 days of using it my face broke out into incredibly itchy hives. Very dissapointing.

                            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!
