How to Use
Rated 4.17 out of 5 stars
This is the best hydrating cleanser I have found for the price! It doesn't contain any fragrance, which is terrible for your skin and doesn't leave your skin feeling tight. I love that it has hyaluronic acid. I have dry skin and dry patches. I use this cleanser and the CeraVe moisturizer in the tub. I use it in the morning for extra hydration, then I switch to another cleanser at night. The people who are giving this a low rating don't understand what it is for. THIS IS NOT A MAKEUP REMOVER. There are no claims that it will remove makeup. If you wear makeup, you should be taking your makeup off with some type of makeup removal product FIRST. Then go in with this cleanser.
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.

If you're after a deep clean, or makeup removing, this isn't the cleanser for you. I love this as my morning cleanse. It's very gentle and hydrating, hence the name. It's much like a lotion in consistency and does not foam/lather. Doesn't strip the skin/make you feel "squeaky clean" which you don't want anyway. If you have oily skin I probably wouldn't recommend. I've tried other cleansers in place of this, but none compare for my skin type.

I've tried all kinds of cleansers - cheap ones, pricy ones. This one is perfect! Doesn't strip my face, but removes all of my makeup and leaves skin feeling hydrated. Will be repurchasing for sure!

Heard lots of mixed reviews on this cleanser because the consistency was like lotion but I don't mind! The product works for my skin and my skin doesn't get that tight feeling because of lack of hydration which will occur when I used other products.

But you won't have that glycerin in your eyes puffy and painful experience. Feels Like a better clean than cetaphil. But no dry or stripped feeling. Takes A LOT LESS product to cover the same area.

Cloe from Florida
I like this product. I do use it but I alternate with the SA cleanser from CERAVE too. This product is extremely hydrating. Like seriously extremely. It's very good if you have really dry skin or always in the sun. I use a tiny bit of this and it makes my face feel werid. I like to use it when I'm out in the sun a lot. Definitely recommend but only for people with really dry skin. It almost feels as if it's conditioner

I'm soooo lost on how everyone loves this face wash! I mean to each their own I suppose but this broke me out and felt like I was washing my face with lotion.
Anna from California
This cleanser is so good, I love it. It is very gentle on the skin and keeps it hydrated.
Michaela from Houston, Texas
I use this everyday sometimes in the morning and sometimes at night. It immediately makes my skin feel hydrated and refreshed. I love this product so much!
Cami from Los Angeles, CA
This product is incredible! It's super hydrating, after washing face with it I feel a hydrating barrier on my skin. It has no fragrance smell, super gentle, and non drying. I don't have sensitive skin but I feel no irritation when using this.
Melissa the The Reviewer from Peoria
I use it as a everyday face wash. I like that it doesn't strip all the oil off my face like most face washes do. Highly recommend pairing it with the Cerve Moisturizing Lotion.

I like it a lot!

I am always trying new cleansers but I keep on coming back to this. This soothes and clears my skin like NOTHING ELSE. I will never stop repurchasing this! As someone with very dry skin, the best applications for me are using it as a very gentle cleanser first thing in the morning or as a second cleanse right after taking off my makeup. The literal only downfall to this cleanser is just how gentle it is, you will need a separate makeup remover with this because this alone is not strong enough to take off makeup by itself.

I use this product every day, and recently added my Tula cleansing oil as a first wash before the Cerave. I find this is super gentle and it won't strip your skin dry to the bone like some face washes. I was having random spurts if acne (my guess is stress and hormone related) after never struggling with it before. After switching to this guy along with the lotion, my skin is doing so much better.
This is not really a negative to the product, but I wouldn't consider this a cleanser that really digs deep into your pores like some cleansers with AHA, BHA, etcetera. However, I think this would be a great cleanser to use daily while using a more penetrating one on other days.

I don't know why all the comments are bad I absolutely live this so much if u were you I wouldn't listen I'm in love ❤️✨
Crystal from New York
I have combo leaning dry skin and this is great! I haven't been using it for very long so I can't speak to the breakouts others are mentioning in the reviews but the SA Cleanser by CeraVe used next to this every other day and CeraVe moisturizers have been doing wonders for my skin!
Eva from Houston, TX
Absolutely love this product. It leaves the skin super hydrated and smooth. My skin is literally glowing. So happy I found this.
Milo from Washington
I have normal to dry skin, and use this cleanser in the morning before applying makeup, and in the evening after I use a foaming cleanser that leaves my skin very dry. This cleanser has been very very helpful, and is similar to Cetaphils cleanser. It has a very viscous, oily feeling, and isn't supposed to foam. It hydrates my skin quite nicely. I often have a couple pimples, but most of them are deep pimples, and I haven't noticed an unusual amount of pimples since using this product. My skin isn't very sensitive. It's great product for a wonderful price!!!
Elizabeth from USA
There seems to be a lot of hype around this product, but like many other reviewers, this product made me break out pretty badly. I've only tried it twice over the span of a month or two, and each time I have sadly broken out. I rarely get pimples but, both times it made me get about 4 pimples after one use. My face was clear before. It seems relatively gentle and it did hydrate my skin a bit and didn't strip it, but for that reason it's a no-go for me. Wouldn't recommend for slightly sensitive (or worse) skin.
Kennedy from Texas
This cleanser worked wonders, although it feels like I'm applying lotion to my face it worked well for my sensitive dry skin. This cleanser was recommended by Hyram, I decided to order this cleanser after a cleanser I had been using for years had caused major irritation to my skin (first aid beauty facial cleanser) I used this hydrating facial cleaner with the Cerave moisturizing cream it worked well my skin had been looking so congested this helped with that and helped restore my moisture saw results within 1 day
Mjp from Iowa
This is literally Awful. It feels like I'm washing my face with a lotion. Did not clean my face at all
Hailey from San Jose, CA
My face was finally clear because I started taking care of myself. Then I got this cleanser because I heard so many good reviews on CeraVe and I didn't have acne anymore so I decided to try it out and I started getting red bumps and breaking out. I tried it for one week because maybe my skin was purging but now I have so many big and small pimples. DO NOT BUY!!!!!

I saw someone in the reviews who's saying that this product is "toxic" because it has alcohols and parabens. That's not true. The alcohols are NOT the drying kind, they are used as emulsifiers and are not drying or irritating in the least. The parabens will not negatively effect you because this is a wash off product and they're at the very bottom of the ingredient list. There is such a tiny amount of parabens that will absorb into your body that they will absolutely be excreted without causing harm. Also I'm not sure why that person said it's making their skin darker, that's pretty much impossible lol. Thanks for coming to my ted talk byeeee
